REVIEW

"A Fun Regency Romp with a Vampire Twist!"

Caroline Cabot is doing all she can to keep her sisters afloat financially. Taking up the reins when her parents passed on eight years ago, as the oldest she feels responsible for sisters Vivienne and Portia. And since Caroline is now considered well on the shelf at the ripe age of 24 she decides the smartest thing to do is to let Vivienne make her debut in London and hopefully return with a wealthy husband that can save them from their dyer straights.

It doesn't take long before Vivienne does indeed catch the attention of a rather wealthy Earl. Unfortunately it is rumored throughout the ton that he is a vampire. Not one to fall for flights of fancy and silly notions Caroline tries to write it off. Unfortunately, Portia, her youngest sister who lives for the dramatic, won't let it go and now they have been invited by the Earl to attend a midnight dinner.

From here the book takes flight in wonderful states of misdirection and humor. And Caroline, who has all the best intentions of either giving her blessing or saving her sister, is finding it harder and harder to resist Lord Trevelyan's magnetism.

After Midnight was a fun and fascinating read. Teresa Medeiros manages to keep the plot twisting through the whole book. Her words are wonderfully descriptive giving every impression of a vampire in their midst. I truly had a hard time putting this book down. I thoroughly enjoyed the dynamics between the sisters. Their lightness and humor contrasted well with dark seriousness of Lord Trevelyan. And I must say Ms. Medeiros knows how to tighten the knot of sexual tension as the book unravels and the truth is finally revealed.

SUMMARY

"Our sister is marrying a vampire."

When the ever practical Caroline Cabot first hears those words from the lips of her fanciful youngest sister, she accuses Portia of having a wild imagination.

But when she discovers their sister Vivienne is actually being courted by Adrian Kane, the mysterious viscount rumored to be a vampire, she decides to accept his invitation to a midnight supper and do some sleuthing of her own.

To both her delight and her dismay, she soon finds herself falling under Kane's bewitching spell. After all, what's a proper young lady to do when her sister's suitor arouses more than just her suspicions?

Look for the sequel to AFTER MIDNIGHT (Portia and Julian's story) coming Fall 2006!
