4.0 out of 5 stars A well written romance set in Regency times 14 Sep 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Our heroine is Victoria Fontaine nicknamed 'Vixen' she is mischievous, intelligent and pushes the limits without causing too much of a scandal until she meets Sinclair Grafon Lord Althorpe (nicknamed Lord Sin) for within minutes of meeting they are seen by the ton (including Vixen's father) kissing. Victoria's father insists that Sin do the honourable thing (much to Victoria's disgust) and they are duly married.
The hero Sin is the 2nd son he went to France and everyone thinks that he is a wastrel who should have fought for king and country some even wonder if he was on Napoleons side!
His older brother was murdered 2 years ago (Sin thinks it's because he was the only one who knew that Sin was a spy) and now he is finally back to find the murderer. He has reason to believe that the murderer is one of the young men who make up Vixens following.
Sin was a spy in France (this is not giving away the plot as you learn this early on) and so puts his resources and brains to the task of finding his brothers killer, unfortunately the case is too close to home and this means he is not as careful as he should be around his very intelligent bride (whom he underestimates to start with).
This is a very good book and well written as you would expect of Suzanne Enoch my only grumble is that if Sin's brother was so anti-French why did he stock brandy? Must have been old stock!
If you like Julia Quinn or Victoria Alexander you should definitely like this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable read 14 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Generally, it is a good book. The storyline was okay not a keeper, nevertheless readable. For a guy who is supposed to be a brilliant spy, he seemed very easily found out. Perhaps it is the power of love but i thought the author could have left Vix guessing a bit more. if you like Enoch, it won't be a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Keeper! 11 Oct 2000
By Tina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another wonderful read by Suzanne Enoch. The story is of Victoria "Vixen" Fontaine and Sinclair "Sin" Grafton. Sin was a spy in France during the war and had developed a horribly black reputation in England so he could fit into the role he played while a spy there.
He comes home 2 years after his brother dies to claim the title as well as find his brothers killer. This leads him to Vixen because he suspects a friend of hers, Viscount Marley. Vixen is incredibly spirited and is considered fast. She has no intention of marriage and all her actions point to her being what I term a "female rake". Sin and Vixen are attracted to each other and are caught embracing shortly after meeting each other in the garden of the ball they are at. Vixen's father, at his wits end with his scandal-creating daughter, insists on marriage.
They do and its a wild ride til they fall in love from there. Both are concerned with helping and protecting the other and will do what they must to ensure that. Vixen is not your ordinary heroine and she is quite likeable and Sin is not only sexy but a decent, honorable man who is having a hard time meshing his former "spy" life with his new titled one.
Sin's spy friends are amusing, Alexandra and Lucien from Reforming a Rake appear, and Vixen's menagerie all make for a great time reading this! Vixen's parrot, Mungo Park, is hysterical! I highly recommend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexual Content: PG-13 22 Oct 2000
By Tina Engler Keen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A sexy hero, a feisty heroine, a murder mystery, and a passionate romance...put them all together and you get "Meet Me At Midnight", a Regency-era historical you don't want to miss.
Twenty-year-old Victoria Fontaine is forever getting herself into trouble. As a consequence, her friends have nicknamed her the Vixen, a name she has no problem living up to. When Victoria is caught in a compromising embrace with Sinclair Grafton, the Marquis of Althorpe, her father forces her to marry him against her wishes, more than happy to pass his troublesome daughter off to another man, even a man like "Lord Sin" who has a reputation for debauchery.
A year shy of inheriting the funds her grandmother left her, Victoria is furious that her plans for independence have been thwarted over one little kiss. Her anger soon turns to friendship and passion, for Victoria can't help but to be intrigued by her husband. What's more, she's beginning to suspect that there's more to Sinclair than what meets the eye. She soon realizes that her husband isn't the wastrel lord he presents himself to society as, but what she doesn't yet understand is why he's hiding behind such a facade to begin with.
Sinclair Grafton returned to England to see his elder brother's killer brought to justice. An English spy during the war against France, he fears that his brother was killed because he knew of his activities. Sinclair used the charade of a carefree, mindless rake to mask his true motives to Napoleon's men in France and continues on with said charade in England so as not to appear suspicious to his brother's killer.
Sinclair had planned for every eventuality, but he hadn't prepared for Victoria Fontaine. When a passionate kiss forces him to do the right thing by the woman he compromised, Sinclair marries her, but fears for her safety...especially since his wife is quite astute and is beginning to fit the puzzle pieces of who he really is together with astonishing speed. Somehow he must catch the killer before any harm befalls his wife...a wife who makes him feel feelings he's never known before and whom he continually falls more in love with each day.
Be warned: this is a Regency-era romance of the wallpaper variety. In other words, it doesn't contain tons and tons of rich historical detail...just enough language and references to make the setting realistic. I had no problems with this because I'm an avowed historical junkie of the wallpaper variety. To be blunt, tons and tons of rich historical detail bore me to tears. My point? If you're a wallpaper addict like me, this is the book to give you a happy fix. If wallpaper turns you off, however, "Meet Me At Midnight" might not be the historical romance for you.
This book became a keeper for me because of the protagonists and their burgeoning passion for each other. Enoch developed Victoria and Sinclair's personalities and motivations very convincingly, to the point where you feel as though you know them well enough to be friends by the time you finish the book.
As difficult as it might be for an historical buff to fathom, "Meet Me At Midnight" doesn't contain any misunderstandings or miscommunications between the hero and heroine whatsoever. If Victoria worries about something, she confronts Sinclair with her grievance rather than developing a stiff upper lip and keeping the misunderstanding to herself until the truth somehow comes to light of its own volition near the book's ending. Almost sounds too good to be true, I know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 3 Oct 2000
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With the Napoleonic Wars over, anyone with the Y-chromosome seems to jump when Lady Victoria "Vixen" Fontaine asks them to do something. However, her lifestyle changes when her father catches her in a fervent kiss with the notorious rake, Marquis Sinclair Grafton. Compromised, Sin and Vixen marry.

Vixen soon learns that her rascal of a spouse has a hard core inside him. The former spy is determined to uncover the identity of the individual who killed his sibling while Sin worked the continent. Vixen realizes that the seemingly acting wastrel hides his quest and she plans to use her body to seduce his deepest secrets from him. However, though forced into marriage, love soon enters the picture.

MEET ME AT MIDNIGHT, the second novel in Suzanne Enoch's "With This Ring" trilogy (see REFORMING A RAKE), is a warm by-the-book Regency romance. Although the story line has been written numerous times before, Ms. Enoch provides an entertaining read due to the machinations of her lead couple. Their antics, an often amusing and just as often dangerous battle of the sexes, turn the tale into a fun novel that will delight the hard core sub-genre fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant, but not Enoch's best 4 April 2004
By S. Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Suspense, rather than romance, is the bigggest aspect of Meet Me at Midnight. Victoria and Sinclair seem to be well-suited, but their romance is not entirely convincing. I can't quite put my finger on the problem, but they somehow remain rather vague throughout the story. The solving of the murder is very well done, however, even though I solved it by half-way through; the resolution was well done and suspense was maintained throughout. That, however, is not the point of a romance, nor should it be the main plot. That and the fact that the romance itself was not entirely satisfying is why I give the book only 3 stars. It simply did not keep me engrossed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story - great romantic read! 23 July 2004
By J. Brennan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have always enjoyed Enoch's books and this one was no exception! Vixen and Sin were actually a perfect couple. Both were pretending to be something they were not and both were actually bored with the lives they had been leading. Thrown together but not really against their will - they quickly found there was much to each others personalities than what others perceived. There is just enough intrigue in the plot to add to the romance. I really enjoyed this Enoch romance and would highly recommend it!!!
