Publisher's Summary

Miss Kate Daltry doesn't believe in fairy tales...or happily ever after.

Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince...and decides he's anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman—a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions.

Gabriel likes his fiancee, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him.

Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after.

Unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble....

Unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune....

Unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

I loved this book

I loved this book so much that I had trouble putting it down. It is a Cinderella trope, and it is sooo good!

Great book, but mixed opinion

Loved the narrator! Mixed opinion about the fairytale theme, time period and the"loss of virtue" . Can't decide if I like it more or prefer a G rated version...

Love in any state of being..

My most memorable moment is when Kate takes her sister into the secret garden and explains that love isn't just for the legitimate. How sweet.

What great story!

I absolutely loved this story and the narration was perfection!!!! I'm a sucker for Cinderella stories and this one was no different, heck I even cried a few times because even though I knew they would end up together, I kept thinking, 'what if they don't?' and it just broke my heart!

Susan Duerden + favourite authors = agony

Any additional comments?

I lament the day that Susan Duerden was chosen to narrate Eloisa James' Regency canon.

She's competent at the dialogue sections, but consistently uses the most annoying and completely un-period uptalk intonation during all the narrative sections (which, of course, comprise the majority of the text).

I won't be purchasing any more Duerden audiobooks, despite my love of Eloisa James...

Stay away from Kleypas, Balogh, Heyer, and (for the love of heaven) Bourne, I beg!

Fabulous Cinderella tale

I was almost instantly drawn into the story because the delious narration moved me and the characters were such believable people. You believe that hat Kate and the Prince Gabriel are welcomed love story which made me teary, but in the end they do get to live happily ever after.

Lovely....

A Kiss at Midnight....Loved this story so much! It was a really good book and loved the narrator. I've been hesitant to listen to her because in a few of her prior story narrations she's been breathy, but not in this story. The descriptions and overall story was a 5 star for me.

Loved it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a great Cinderella story. It has so many great characters & excellent story line. This book is a beautiful love story, sensual, exciting, tender & sweet. I absolutely loved it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Kiss at Midnight?

I don't ever do spoilers. I will say the moment he realizes he can't live without her made me cry. The leading man is every girls dream!

Which character – as performed by Susan Duerden – was your favorite?

Leading man.
