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:}
I like to read stories about dogs, mysteries that are a little but humorous, stories about relationships that are not too explicate, Christian fiction and stories revolving around knitting and quilting.
Maybe... With a warning about the sexual content.
Enjoyed all the characters.
Hmmm... Didn't read the print version.
Definitely NOT rated PG13.
Lisa is a great writer. Love her story lines, characters and attention to details...
Just wish there was more "left to the imagination" for the sexual content.
As usual, LK's books are all around fabulous. Great characters...different surprises than the usual romance novel...just the right amount of steamy love scenes and terrific endings!!! Can't wait to download the next book. :)
I love the Hathaway Series! I love the characters and the stories are interesting and well developed, but, jeez there's just too much sex in this one. Every other scene Amelia and Cam are at it again! I got to the point where I'd groan "Oh man, not again!" If I'd had the ability to fast forward through these scenes I would of. Don't get me wrong, I'm not the least bit prudish, but pleeease! "Too much information!!!" I would enjoy the romance scenes more if Lisa could leave something to the imagination. How about a few scenes of dialog before "Hathaways Gone Wild" starts up again :)
I do love the story and I especially love Cam and Maripen. The addition of this aspect makes the stories so interesting that I can listen to them over and over. All the characters are wonderful and I highly recommend this book and all the other ones in this series. Lots of laughs as well as high drama. A perfect mix.
Haven't read this book but Rosalyn is so amazing in her character in interpretation. The people come alive, between her voice and the story I never wanted to stop listening. It left me wanting to know more about these wonderful people
I am torn between Amelia Hathaway and Cam Rohan. They both had so many twists and turns in there character. I want to know more about their lives.
Again I am torn between Amelia Hathaway and Cam Rohan. She gave such distinction to both.
Made me laugh and cry. When it was over all could think of was when can I get the next one.
Would love to read more about the challenges Amelia and Cam face in their lives.
All business but contemporary fun!
I was so pleasantly surprised by this book, given that I first read Kleypas' contemporary work which was good but nothing like this. The story is about an unconventional family in Hampshire, England around 1850. The oldest sister Emilia has taken responsibility of the family after her parents passing and is in search of her philandering brother who is mourning the death of his fiance. On her way to save her brother, she comes up with the an unbelievably intriguing man, not of a noble heritage, who will do anything in his power to win her love.
The interaction between Cam and Emilia is raw and mesmerizing, to the point of no return. As the story unfolds, there is plenty of suspense and drama over events in the family, that also introduce you to each individual family member, which the sequels are based on.
The Hathaways are an absolute blast, exuding humor, kindness and friendship.
Most of all, Cam is a male lead worth swooning over for a long long time.
Must read in the historical romance genre.
I love the audible version more than the print version. There are differences between the two. Christopher Frost shows up earlier in the print version. The architectural firm is headed by his brother in the print version but by an entirely unrelated character in the audible version. This is not abridged as some reviewers have thought. It's just slightly different - improved, I would say. It's almost as though the audible version was based on a later edition than the print version I have on my Kindle. Wish I could get the audible book in print - maybe with whisper sync.
Cam Rohan and Merripen. They are fascinating characters. Lisa Kleypas could do a series based on them before and after meeting the Hathaways. Beyond the Hathaway series.
I love Rosalyn Landor's performances. I look for books she has narrated. This is one of her best. Truly, I have never heard any of her narrations that I did not enjoy.
There is a lot of humor in this book. I love the interplay between characters. Lisa Kleypas has a wonderful gift for dialogue and Rosalyn Landor brings it life with her voice acting.
I've have listened to this book over and over. I highly recommend it.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: London and Hampshire, England 1848
Genre: Early Victorian Romance
Narration: Rosalyn Landor, as usual, delivers a fine performance. She managed to pull off the voices of the characters from the Wallflowers series, as well as give unique voices to the many characters introduced in this novel. This was my second listening, and it was great.
Mine Till Midnight is the first in the Hathaways series and a very good start it is. The main characters in this book are Amelia, the oldest female in the Hathaway family, and Cam, a Rom/Irish man who played a small part in Devil in Winter. The plot is about how this family adjusts to their change in circumstance. LK manages to do a good job of presenting the main plot while weaving in a sort of sub-plot, and introducing characters who figure in subsequent books. And by introduction, I don't mean just names. I mean names, position in the family, some backstory, and personality traits. The main characters in this story also play roles in the stories with other characters. Sometimes, in a series featuring many individuals, a listener can get confused about who is who, but the narration helps with that issue. I don't know if it would have been so easy in print.
Worth the credit and the time.
