The two main characters were so thoroughly developed earlier in the series that it was truly cathartic to see them finally come together. This story is very romantic, sweet, passionate, and compelling. I wish all novels were written so well. Love the narration too! I will probably listen to it again!
I liked this story best out of all the stories in the Hathaway's series. The main character torn by his past and not feeling good enough for his love, made the story sweet and it engrossed me into wanting more.
I read so I can write
I always expect great things from Kleypas and this series does not disappoint. The characters are strong and entertaining and their interaction with each other builds a good story. I don't agree with other reviewers who did not like Kev. Considering his background he is believable. For him to move from point A to point B would have been difficult and how he did so made sense.
I look forward to continuing this series.
Ms Landor is one of my favorite narrators.
Narrator Landor is the worst choice I can imagine for Kleypas' historical romance. I love the books but the audio is unbearable. Kev as written by Kleypas is a wonderful hero, not the barking old man portrayed by Landor.
Listening to books is the best. I love almost all genres, but romance is my favorite, and rom-com is my preference there.
Setting: London & Hampshire, 1851, but with back story
Genre: Early Victorian romance.
Narration: Once again, Rosalyn Landor does an excellent interpretation of the characters. I enjoy her work.
This is the second book in the Hathaways series, and focuses on the second sister, Win. There's also a lot back story, mainly having to do with Merripen, but also some history of the family members. The back story also shows the development of his relationship with Win. My biggest problem is with the shift in Merripen's character when Win goes to the clinic in France. He becomes bitter and more uncommunicative than he was before. Why? It seems terribly selfish of him to ask her not to go, when he has no intention of carrying their relationship further. I think he must have been the most difficult personality for LK to write, because you're supposed to root for him but, at least for me, there really wasn't much growth in the character. He never really gives me the warm fuzzies. The really great part of this book is the interaction with the Rom, and, oh yeah, the doctor in the wardrobe scene. Win becomes back from France pretty kick-ass. And blood thirsty.
Worth the time and credit? Yes, but do try to catch it in a BOGO, or some other sale.
Intense Thrilling Romance
Mine Till Midnight (The Hathaway book 1)
It's just I great but we get to see even more layers unfold and more questions answered. Merripen's story is crucial to the Hathaway family history. The romance is just as intense and there are some thriller perilous side stories.
This one is just as great as the others. She is my favorite narrator.
I was feeling the emotions as they were being expressed. I definitely snickered a bit.
Rosalyn Landor is great at expressing emotions, desperation, and romance scenes.
The romance scenes are detailed but not grotesque. They express the passions we all hope to experience with love.
Getting more background on the characters as well as getting updated on the Wallflowers. Plus, of course, the romance!!
didnt have the print version
I loved the story being about Romas and their culture.
Any time Merripen was speaking I was enthralled!
The narrator was interesting to listen to and differentiated the different character's voices well.
