Mine Till Midnight (The Hathaways, Book 1)

Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas (2007)

Pages: 384

ISBN: 0312949804

Description: 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 pretty 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 intnentions ar no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurn tradition be tempted into that most timehonored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter...

Review: From the beginning it appears that Amelia and Cam have great chemistry and need to end up together. I was instantly enthralled with the story of the Hathaways rise from middle class to the aristocracy. Although many of the siblings are haunted by the past they come out of this story unscathed (for the most part). I do wish we would have learned more about Cam and his past, but I have a feeling we will be learning more as the series continues on. I would definitely recommend this.

Score: 4 out of 5
