Wonderful start to a new series,
This review is from: Mine Till Midnight: Number 1 in series (Hathaways) (Paperback)
Amelia Hathaway is determined to keep her colourful younger sisters and wastrel elder brother in line - especially since they have recently come into an unexpected title and inheritance. Things are going somewhat to plan until a chance encounter with half-gypsy Cam Rohan in London.
When the pair meet again in Hampshire, neither can deny the sparks that fly but getting involved would be disastrous for both of them. But sometimes fate has other things in mind and as Amelia battles with a multitude of problems - it's her feelings for Cam that seem to be the biggest problem of all.
This is the start of a new series of regency set romances presumably focussing on the Hathaway family. As well as that, this book nicely ties into the Wallflower series of books with a story for Cam Rohan - the manager from Jenner's gaming club which appeared in many of those books.
This story was typical Lisa Kleypas with deep, meaningful emotions, hot sex scenes and love that conquers all. Cam was wonderful as the hero - strong and arrogant yet also mysterious and tender. While Amelia was a perfect heroine for him - determined to make sure her family were cared for and just as determined not to lean on anyone. The chemistry leapt off the pages between the pair. The secondary characters were also well described and I am looking forward to reading their books in the future. And it was lovely to see Lillian and Marcus (from It Happened One Autumn) making an appearance.
As this was part of a series - there were plenty of things that were left hanging such as Cam's mysterious tattoo, the relationship between sister Win and the servant Merripen etc. But I really can't complain as they weren't integral to this particular book's plot and it just makes me excited for the next book in the series.
If you're a fan of Lisa Kleypas or if you like your romances well-written with plenty of heat and emotion then I'm sure you will enjoy this book. An excellent read and definitely worth 5 stars.
