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)

    "Absolutely in love with this series!"
    Any additional comments?

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

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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!

    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.

    "Nice series, good story line, too explicate."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe... With a warning about the sexual content.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Enjoyed all the characters.


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

    Hmmm... Didn't read the print version.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Definitely NOT rated PG13.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Great, but too much explicit sex for my liking"

    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.

    Story
    "kind of a slow starter"

    in the beginning I had to make myself listen to this one and I put it if for a good week. I didn't like her portrayal if the heroine she seem worrisome and impotent. I made myself push through it (I hate not finishing a book) and ended up liking the characters. Now I need to know what the damned Puka means.

    Story
    "He is a dream man..."

    She is the head of the household with 4 others siblings. She is resigned to be a spinster. She believes her family needs her more than she needs love.

    He is half Irish and half Gypsy so he is not welcomed as husband material by the English. They meet when she is looking for a sibling. He is surprised at how she mentally challenges and physically entices him.

    Their romance is one where he must breech her beliefs that she is not ready for marriage. He is a man any woman would want - patient, wise, understanding and sexy.

    This is the first book in the series.

    Yes this book alters her former love to former friend of her brother, but it does not detract from the enjoyment of this story.

    Narration is superb.
