Book Description

26 Jun 2001
In the night, all rules are forgotten....

Eloisa James, the acclaimed author of Potent Pleasures, returns to Regency England with an unforgettable new heroine — a genteel but naughty innocent who gets more than she bargains for when she finally says yes to love.

To her legions of adoring suitors, it comes as quite a shock when Lady Sophie York rejects an offer of marriage from the dashing, rakish Patrick Foakes in favor of amiable but dull Braddon Chatwin. He may be an earl, but it is Patrick's stolen kisses that sear her lips.

When Patrick, in disguise, scales a ladder to retrieve his friend's fiancée, he never expects the elopement to be his own. Neither does Sophie, Braddon, or the rest of the tattling ton. One hasty wedding later, the passionate innocent and the sophisticated rogue play out their own intricate dance as Sophie masters what it takes to keep a man where he belongs. And Patrick learns the ultimate lesson in love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Midnight Pleasures 27 July 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I picked this book up on the off-chance, when browsing for something to read over the weekend - I didn't expect much, just something to hold my interest.
Well, this book did that and more.
Sophie's parents are estranged, mostly due to the fact that her father is a philanderer, and is not discreet about it. Sophie is determined never to marry for love, as she has seen how it hurts when it is not reciprocated - to that end, she refuses the charming rake, Patrick, and accepts his friend Braddon, who is dull & whom she is certain she will not come to love.
However, things go awry, and she ends up married to Patrick.
The story of how these two passionate people come to terms with their pasts and build a strong, loving relationship is touching, realistic and a pleasure to read about.
I read a lot of romances (about 7 a week!) and am hard to please - so many are poorly researched (when will editors cop on that the English have Autumn, not fall, streets, not blocks, and do not have closets??) the characters are 2 dimensional and you forget them two days after you finish the book, and often the plots are just plain ridiculous.
However, this book actually made me cry (very, very rare - I'm just too hard-hearted!) and I got a warm fuzzy feeling when it ended.
A superb book, and I've got the next on my shelf at the moment - I hope it's just as good, although I am a little bit nervous - Midnight Pleasures is a tough act to follow!

5.0 out of 5 stars fab! 9 Feb 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
this book is REALLY good.
The characters are good - and real - and you will care about them...
and its a romance with a difference at the end... very sad - but really real life.
i like romance books - esp if they are set in the past - and this one is lush with lovely dresses and huge balls!

4.0 out of 5 stars Midnight Pleasures 9 Jun 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book in a Charity Shop and decided to give Eloisa James a try not having read any of her novels before although I have sold quite a few. I just loved it and could not put it down certainly it will be going on mykeeper shelf. I have managed to obtain Enhanting Pleasures which I am also enjoying very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 18 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read a lot or romances, and this is one of the best I've ever read. The characteras are both brilliantly portrayed. Normally I'm not very interested in the guy, but with this one I wanted to jump into the book and grab him for myself! For a decent romance you have to have goo dchemistry, and boy did they have that. Everything about this book was fantastic, and I would recommend it to any romance reader.
