I loved Kissed At Midnight, where the usual walls between master and servant crumble and passion ignites. The read is sensual, romantic and fun as the two protagonists, Ivy and August, who may well be my favourite Samantha Holt couple to date, circle each other, trying in vain to deny their growing mutual attraction.

August is in a real pickle since he assumed the responsibility for caring for his cousin’s baby Elsie, and in an uncharacteristic show of impetuosity he hires Ivy as her nursemaid, despite her lack of experience in such a role. Both know that the situation is only transitory as Ivy’s real goal is to forge a career as a singer.

The author’s voice in this novel is decidedly playful, driven in part no doubt by the character of the heroine, Ivy, whose actions compel the evolving romance with her knack of plain speaking and spontaneous nature. By contrast the engineer August is methodical, cautious and conservative in outlook. Ivy is the perfect yin to his yang, free spirited and adventurous. I just adored how the tale shows us how August’s well-ordered life is soon compromised by Ivy’s presence in his household.

I loved how the author showed this handsome man grappling with his conscience regarding how to treat Ivy, a woman in his employ who he is honour bound to protect, yet at the same time the very woman who he is developing an irrepressible attraction for. He also strives to avoid the unwelcome attentions of the widow Mrs Pepperwhite, who does not care for Ivy’s appearance on the scene.

Ivy is quite a heroine! I loved her back story and her character which goes against everything that is expected of a Victorian lady.

This was exactly what I hoped it would be - a romantic romp between a master and servant. Set in Victorian Manchester, it felt like I'd escaped into a time where a woman's reputation is everything and where a man really is expected to be the alpha male, taking care of his woman. It made a really pleasant change from reading about a modern so-called alpha male who's mostly just a bossy git.

The romance built slowly with lingering glances and chaste yet still forbidden touches that made for some really sizzling smutty scenes. Tasteful, yes, but hotter than I dared hope for.

August Avery, the male lead is an engineer responsible for creating a pioneering railway tunnel that he hopes will make all corners of the UK accessible and pave the way for future prosperity. He's a real forward thinker and someone I found it quite easy to imagine striding around in his top hat. Ivy is employed as nursemaid to August' s ward who he takes responsibility for following the death of his cousin. I love to see otherwise gruff and belligerent men go all caring and protective with a baby so this really worked well for me.

This was an easy to read book that really held my interest. It's a complete story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll be looking out for more books from this author. Recommended if you fancy a historical romance.

HASH(0x9a309990) out of 5 stars Upstairs meets Downstairs in this sensual Victorian romance 20 Feb. 2015

He also strives to avoid the unwelcome attentions of the widow Mrs Pepperwhite, who does not care for Ivy’s appearance on the scene.

Ivy is quite a heroine! I loved her back story and her character which goes against everything that is expected of a Victorian lady. She certainly upsets August’s routine and in a household as small as his, the usual rules between master and servant are soon compromised. Their romance is a real page- turner as neither August or Ivy know how to cope with their growing feelings for each other and there are a number of barriers to their HEA: Ivy’s ambition to become a famous singer; August’s desire to maintain his distance from the hired help and Mrs Pepperwhite’s interest in August.

Their love-making scenes between the couple are hugely romantic and sensual and although August is a true gentleman, he is very much flesh and blood and as I read I could sense the growing desire between him and Ivy which demands to be sated…..

All in all a super sensual romance and I feel one of the author’s best to date. Recommended for readers of historical romance. A copy of this novel was made available for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

HASH(0x98cd1e70) out of 5 stars I enjoyed this story 20 Feb. 2015
By Wanda Green Swafford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this story. I loved the fact that both main characters were independent people and can take care of themselves but still found themselves want and needing the other. Things got pretty steamy between Ivy and August. However, it was refreshing to see that August was very respectful of Ivy and wouldn't just take what he wanted. They say if something like, you love something let it go and it if it comes back to you it was yours, well this story is a good example of that.

HASH(0x9c031d44) out of 5 stars Kissed by Love 22 Feb. 2015
By Rosemary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ivy Davis left home to become a famous singer, but success has eluded her. She needs to find work to support herself. She applies for a job as a governess. However she goes to the wrong address. The harried man who answers the door desperately needs help. He's caring for his late cousin's child. He hires Ivy to care for the infant so that he can concentrate on his work as a civil engineer. She can't refuse. Will she every achieve her dream? Samantha Holt has written strong and compelling characters. Ivy is beautiful and feisty. She's determined to succeed. Even though she's drawn to her employer, she knows that nothing can come of it. August Avery is an honorable man who has taken it upon himself to care for a baby. He enjoys Ivy's company and her joyful spirit but his code of honor will not allow him to seduce an innocent. He's her employer. Society would condemn any relationship. I loved seeing Ivy and August together. Their interaction showed both their attraction and caring. I liked the way they want to helped each other achieve their goal. Ivy and August's love was uplifting. It touched me. Kissed at Midnight is a wonderful romance. Samantha Holt has outdone herself. She made her characters come alive. I was caught up in their passionate emotions. This book is a keeper. I was captured by Ivy and August from the first page.

HASH(0x986ceeb8) out of 5 stars Another lovely story by Samantha Holt. 1 Mar. 2015
By Book Spots and Thoughts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ivy is young, beautiful and determined to follow her dreams of becoming a singer, much against the rules of society for a woman of her fine breeding. As such, she leaves home, with not much more than her ambition, and finds herself on the doorstep of August Avery, answering an ad for a governess. Unfortunately, the appointment was located on Elm Tree Road, and Ivy was at Elm Tree Street. But as luck, or perhaps fate, would have it, August had recently become the sole caretaker of his infant niece, Elsie, due to the mother's untimely death. Ivy has no experience with babies, and August has no patience or experience in dealing with a beautiful, young woman, but as fate, or luck, would have it, the two slowly become enamored of the other. But can Ivy abandon her dreams of becoming a singer, and can August overcome propriety and the scandal of falling in love with the governess? Read this lovely story by Samantha Holt and you will no doubt be left with all the answers and a warm heart by the end.

HASH(0x98bf5498) out of 5 stars Not so impressive 21 Aug. 2015
By Belle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am just neutral on this book. It didn't particularly shine, but it wasn't so bad either. The hero August Avery is a very likeable character, ambitious yet caring (he took upon himself the care of his orphaned baby niece). The heroine is okay, likewise ambitious and goes for what she wants and isn't afraid to tread on unfamiliar paths to get where she wants to. But there lies my problem with Ivy. Just two days under the hero's employ as nursemaid to the baby, she traipses around at night in her flimsy nightwear and "she let herself softly down on his bed" and allowed him to "nuzzle" her breasts??? Granting she was helping her drunken employer, still, it would have been easy for her to leave his bedroom as he was already settled on his bed. All this considering that the grumpy housekeeper is supposed to have such sharp hearing. In this period i would think that an innocent lady would be very careful not to get herself ruined. The plot about Ivy sleepwalking is stupid. As nursemaid to a baby who kept her off her bed often at night, the sleepwalking part is rather off. When the hero caught her doing so one night, he was worried she'd hurt herself or fall off the stairs. Who knows what she could have done with the baby too. Fortunately when she sleepwalks, she seems only interested in getting into the hero's bed. The sex scenes were not very graphic, but they were not exciting either. I just skimmed through them. There were too much internal dialogues, and if there ever is an actual dialogue it was only between the hero and the heroine, and every now and then the widow next door pops in (a story does need a bad guy after all). In a small household, one would expect that the three servants can at least talk as well. So there, it's a book that won't leave me with a lasting impression.
