A tale of 3 destitute sisters, with the feisty eldest, Caroline, caring for her younger siblings Vivienne and Portia on the death of their parents. All very Georgette Heyer (and yes, that is a compliment), but of course the enigmatic Vicount pursuing the middle sister has a dark secret. Although I would not wish to spoil the plot I think that the book stood by itself without the paranormal aspects. The three sisters inter-relationships were probably the highlight of the book for me, and it will be interesting to see how the planned sequel takes forward the paranormal aspects.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Vampire Regency - but without enough bite 4 Dec 2006
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I am a keen reader of many genres of novel but particularly Regencies and vampire novels. Thus, when discovering "After Midnight" and its sequel "The Vampire Who Loved Me" by Teresa Medeiros I thought I was in for a really good read - the first Regency Vampire novels I had read.

Sadly I didn't get it. These books cross two very different genres and somehow it doesn't work - neither book sits well in either the Regency genre (not enough historical detail to set the scene properly, behaviour and thoughts that are far more 21st century than 19th) and in the Vampire (not enough information generally about vampires and not enough use made of this interesting option in the plot).

As a brief summary, Caroline Cabot is the eldest of three siblings and has pretty much raised her two younger sisters since the death of their parents. She learns that Adrian Kane, Viscount Trevelyan, is interested in her younger sister Vivienne - but rumour has it that he is a vampire. Certainly his behaviour suggests that is the case - he's never out in daylight, for example. In order to check him out properly she, along with her sisters, visits his home and she meets his brother Julian. What is the Viscount's motivation in courting her sister? Why, when he is apparently about to pop the question to Vivienne does he seem to be toying with Caroline? And is he really a vampire?

There isn't a great deal of plot in this book and the characters tend to all be painted rather indistinctly. There is also a lot of confusing changing of point of view mid-chapter with no clear demarcation - one minute you're hearing Caroline's voice, the next minute Adrian's, and you don't necessarily spot when it changes initially.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun 21 Dec 2006
By Greycat
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a reader of general romance and the new genre of supernatural romance, I found this a fun read. It's easy, the characters are quick to follow, and it ticks along nicely.

Having said that, I'm posting on Amazon.co.uk to mention that potential English Regency fans may find certain aspects of the book grate. The history hasn't been very well investigated and there are errors, as well as simple ignorance of the English language (as in ENGLISH-English). I also severely doubt that Adrian was ever used as an upper-class name of this period (and it's certainly not very sexy!).

However, if you can ignore the little niggles, it's a fun read on a rainy afternoon :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Lords of Midnight 1 25 May 2013
By Kate Phillips TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
To my great surprise I really enjoyed After Midnight. I had expected it to be fun but wasn't expecting it to be as gripping and entertaining as it was. I really liked it a lot more than I thought I would. It was so much fun it made me giggle and smile from beginning to end.

Before starting I was unsure about the storyline, I didn't quite like the idea of a romance between a woman and a man her sister was practically engaged to, but it was mostly handled very well (although there were a couple of bad moments.) I really enjoyed the tongue and cheek nature of this book and the strong independent women it revolves around. I also really liked the paranormal aspect, I thought it was a little different and managed to keep the reader guessing.

I thought that maybe it was a little long and that the ending was dragged out but other than that there was nothing to really complain about.

Another great thing about this book was the characters; I loved every single one of them especially Caroline and Adrian. She was smart and independent I enjoyed her quick wit especially when she went up against Adrian. He had a tough exterior but was a softy inside.

The chemistry between them was explosive and I loved their romance, they tried to stay away from each other but just couldn't. They were great together and I loved the banter between them.

After Midnight was a fun romantic read that was a lot better than I thought it would be, I cannot wait to read more books from this series and author.
