Publisher's Summary

When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

Wealthy beyond most men's dreams, Cam has tired of society's petty restrictions and longs to return to his "uncivilized" Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship - but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter....

What the Critics Say

"The author's sensitivity to the prejudice endured by the Roma (Gypsies) adds a measure of grim reality that is creatively offset by Rohan's discussion of Roma beliefs and superstitions. Kleypas's effortless style makes for another sexy exploration of 19th-century passion and peccadilloes, riveting from start to finish." (Publishers Weekly)

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    "A good beginning for this series"

    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.

    "Even better than the Wallflowers!"
    Where does Mine Till Midnight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in the top 5!


    What other book might you compare Mine Till Midnight to and why?

    Well it would obviously be compared to the rest of the Hathaway Series as well as the Wallflower Series. It's just as good as the Wallflower books and has some of our favorite characters from that series in it but it add extra layers of conflict and emotion which leads to even greater rewards.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rosalyn brings the picture to life during any intimate scene and during extremely exciting moments. Her voices conveys the thickness of the moment or the desperation in the character and everything in between.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did bring some emotions out since the family has experienced quite a few unfortunate events and you can feel the way they must feel to endure such things.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. There was so much in this first book of the series I forgot that there are four more!

    "Narrator fail"

    Narrator Landor ruins an excellent book. This series is about young vibrant characters whom Landor manages to turn into stodgy old folks.

    "Lisa doesn't dissappoint"

    I have not read the written version of this book, so my review is of the work I've heard.

    It was typically Lisa Kleypas which means it was worth the time and money. It was well written and totally enjoyable. What can be said about the hero except wow, good enough to eat.

    There were no weak characters in this story. Each of them has their place and holds it well.

    Ms. Landor's performance was it's usual fantastic. She is one of only a handful of really outstanding narrators of historic romance novels.

    "YAWN... PETTY BORING!!!"

    Every so often I like to read a good romance novel. I always thought Lisa Kleypas was a good writer whose novels were entertaining. However, this book was a huge disappointment. I only finished it because I was away from home and nothing else had been downloaded. The characters were drab and underdeveloped, the plot was one dimensional and cliche. I don't expect a great deal of depth in a romance novel but this had none. Out of no where she threw in a supernatural element, meanwhile she left all of the story lines open except the romance portion. There was a tiny mystery involving a tattoo and that was never revealed to us readers. Last but not least, the book ended abruptly. My advice is not to waste your time reading this book unless you're using it as a sedative.

    "Not a total bomb"

    There are parts to the story that I really enjoyed once I got into it. The problem is that it took awhile to get into the book. Once there it is easy and enjoyable and completely predictable. The main characters are interesting and there is a story there (although there is a distracting ghost side story that seems so out of place) but the narrators voice is so annoying. I have to admit that I went from "oh this is pretty good" to "why did i download this?" This was my first Lisa Kleypas download and might be my last for awhile.

    "Cute but no master piece"

    I enjoy indulging in light-hearted "smut" from time to time. Although this story was okay, there are better ones out there.

    "Will appeal to a certain type"

    After listening to this, I wondered what ever induced me to purchase it. I went back to read the summary, and I still don't know. It is clearly a romance novel, and I've not read one in decades, so I was surprised (and rolled my eyes a lot) at the very graphic "perfect-man" sex. I was annoyed at the perfunctory element of paranormal events and also at the way that key plot elements were not tied up. Guess they want me to buy book 2. Ain't gonna happen.
