Review

"An engaging love story with strong, believable characters. I can't wait to read the sequels!" (Mary Balogh, New York Times bestselling author)

"This standout Regency romance matches an unlikely heroine with an arrogant, secretive duke... ...and a little bit of a murder mystery adds the perfect finishing touch Starred Review" (Publishers Weekly)

My summary of the book - After finding out her brother is in debt to Spencer she forces him to choose her as his midnight dance and then tries to get him to drop the debt. When he refuses she is determined to follow him and make him which leads them to spending the night together after a friend dies. A proposal follows but can Amelia be married to Spencer who still refuses to help her brother and stands in her way when she wants to help.

Thoughts on the characters - Amelia is quite amusing especially marching up to Spencer at the ball and making him dance with her just so she can try to get him to drop her brother's debt. She is quite demanding as she refuses to give up on the quest of fixing her brother even if it causes problems with Spencer. Sometimes her good nature is taken advantage of especially by her brother who seems to keep popping up in the book and making things awkward between her and Spencer.
Spencer doesn't really care what the ton thinks and does what he wants which makes him very demanding and unapproachable but when he is with Amelia she manages to bring out his passionate and loving side. He gets angry and upset with Amelia when she can't understand why he won't help her brother. He is also mysterious as he only turns up at balls at Midnight and doesn't stay for long which makes him interesting to all the ladies of the ton but Amelia sees straight through it and doesn't care.

Overall thoughts - This the first Tessa Dare book that I have read and I really enjoyed it. The interactions between Amelia and Spencer were amusing as it was the battle of wills at some points in the book. It was really passionate, loving and amusing read and will have to read the other books in the series.

This is the first book I've read by the author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Good old fashion romance, cleverly written with a lot of humour which I quite enjoyed. Will read more books by this author as I quite like her style of writing and the clever way she blends the romance with humour. Great read indeed!!

I loved this book! there I've said it, and now I'll have to no doubt spell out to you why I loved it so you'll buy and read this too and hopefully spread the word...

Spencer, who is the Duke of Morland is known as the 'Duke of Midnight', and the reason for this is because he turns up at a ball just as the Waltz is about to begin at the stroke of midnight, and each night chooses a young lady to dance with and then escort her into supper, at which point he disappears until the next time..All the women are agog at this and start vying for a chance to be courted and possibly be the next Duchess..the heroine Amelia, who at the age of 26 has given up ideas of romance and marriage and is quite content looking out for her 5 brothers and being a wall flower, is amused by the gossip about the Duke, that is until her younger brother admits that he owes the Duke £400 in gambling debts and has no possible means of paying, and so Amelia contrives to get him to dance with her (which makes his eyes nearly pop out), and once she gets him on the dance floor impolres him to forgive her brothers debt..This sets of a chain of events which see's them married within 24 hours of meeting and then the fun really begins.

Spencer is a man of very few words, and hates noisy society and is more of a hunter gather type of Alpha male, and he initially is mortified by the amount of talking Amelia seems to do, but soon realises that she is a kind and gentle person who actually makes him laugh and as he has been starved of that kindness in his life wants more of it...

I first read a novella written by Tessa Dare and it was a perfectly pleasant read but it didn't really draw me in. Since then I've read 2 of her books based on the positive reviews, "A week to be wicked" and this one of the rogue series. I think the reason the novella didn't work as well for me, is that these books are full. She manages to create whole little mini universes full of characters that you like and want to see more of. She needs a whole book to have the time to let everyone come to life. As well there's a lot of adventure, but she manages very well not to overshadow the central romance. She's able to write with a lot of humour and both of her books that I've read made me laugh out loud at times. Theres also lots of sexual tension and good sex scenes. All in all what's not to like - humour, adventure, romance and love.

I did not have high hopes for this book - especially from the corny title. However, I was pleasantly surprised.

Spencer has gained a reputation for only attending most balls or parties just on midnight, chooses a debutante to dance one dance (usually the waltz, I think) and then leaves. If you can imagine young girls sighing in anticipation, (imagine Justin Bieber fans when he was just becoming famous!) then you can imagine these debutantes! It made me laugh!

In fact, I laughed many times because the reasons for whatever the Duke (Spencer) does or says, turn out to be rather innocent reasons in the end, although most people think him affected! But talk about a single-minded male!!

Now we have Amelia, the girl who is strong in character - I have to admire her. She at least comes across as unpretentious, open-hearted and overall is steady, kind and loving - to a fault, at times. You cannot but like both Amelia and Spencer.

Oh, and a very surprising development about Claudia!

I will not get into the story of how they meet etc, but it is a good story, one with quite a unique plot and well-handled - in terms of the story. The author managed to show us the growth that takes place within the main 2 characters. The other characters were not too well developed, though.

However, although I enjoyed this story very much; there were also many faults too; language - too many Americanisms, too many phrases and words that were not used yet for the era, gaps about Claudia's college/academy and why she was not properly chaperoned. Then the first ball, what gossip it must have caused, what Laurent could have done to "save" his sister. And probably some more that I cannot remember.

If you do not mind the lingo, mistakes, holes in the story (minor), undeveloped supporting characters, and also the many sexual encounters, then it is quite enjoyable.
