I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Mine Till Midnight is the first book in the Hathaway's series, and it is a book you will not want to put down. I would definitely recommend it to any of my adult friends.
Lisa has a gift for developing very likable characters, that as a reader, you begin to invest your time in getting to know. I love this family of misfits! They are precious, and funny, and loyal. They love each other as a family should, with "warts and all".
Rosalyn Landor delivers another amazing performance. Her voices are believable and her story telling is captivating.
This book is definitely worth the credit..Enjoy!
A good story, interesting likable characters, and a very talented reader.
The characters. Although I knew it would have a happy ending, I was curious to see how they would make it happen. Also interesting side stories.
She had a distinct voice for each character and does the male voices very well, which can be a problem for some readers.
This is my favorite audiobook so far. I will be downloading the rest of the books in this series as long as they are read by Ms. Landor.
i like how this was about a gypsy instead of a gentleman and how this series is not confined to upper class folks. it was pretty funny how he takes over her life! i really enjoyed Rosalyn Landor's reading too. sometimes it can be a little funky sounding if the woman reading does not portray the man correctly and it was just right with this book:}
This is an ABRIDGED version of this book and not UNABRIDGED as advertised.
i liked this novel. it wasnt a favorite but i liked it. i found myself however finishing it because i was excited about the sequels! im much more into merrypin than can and amelia. amelia got annoying towards the end with her dragging her feet. also slightly excited to see leo get over himself and move on.
I love this story! I listened to it while driving back and forth to my elderly parents home. I was always disappointed when the trip ended, as I wasn't ready to put the book Away.
This is my first Lisa Kleypas read/listen and I'm only disappointed that I haven't found her sooner! I had a hard time stopping myself from listening all day and all night - and I doubt it will get better any time soon since I immediately downloaded the next in the series when I was finished!
The Hathaway siblings are caught between the two worlds of the English aristocracy, since their brother was recently and unexpectedly titled through a distant relative, and their middle-class, scholarly roots. The love story is between Amelia, the oldest sibling and caretaker of the orphaned, Hathaway siblings and Cam Rohan, who straddles several worlds and social classes as well. Cam is half-Roma, half-Irish, was abandoned by his people at a young age, and manages a disreputable gaming establishment. Despite his deeply held cultural beliefs that material goods and money should not be acquired in order to lead a free and fulfilled life as a Roma, he has a great deal of wealth.
I loved how Kleypas explored Roma culture and the prejudices of the time intertwined with the role of wealth, class, and peerage in the early 19th Century. So interesting! Yet still such an intriguing romance. This book is a rare combination of substance and sin - I highly recommend it!
If you're a romantic at heart you'll love this story. While Emile has a lot of good qualities she was very stubborn to the point of irritation at times. I absolutely loved the character CAM for his patients mostly. This is one of those stories I will listen to again.
Office girl by day, renegade bookie/foodie by night.
I've loved listening to all of the Hathaway novels and then the wallflower series as well. I listened to these a bit out of order, starting with Kev and Win's story but was still able to follow it fine. Cam is amazingly sexy and makes me wish for my own ride into the night time on a pooka!
Say something about yourself!
I love the Hathaway family stories and read most of the books years ago. I am enjoying the audio versions even more. This was probably the first book with the eldest daughter Amelia finding her Prince Charming in the loving arms of a handsome gypsy who helped save her family from ruin (both financial and emotional). Cam is everything any woman would want in a man - charming, loving, understanding, good natured, and willing to overlook all the flaws and problems that came with a family full of misfits. Their love story is beautiful and one we all wish we could have.
