"filled with multiple subplots, intense emotions, sizzling sex, and action galore"
Having escaped the hand of his captors, Edmund Fitz Clare
and his family retire to their ancestral home to regroup
and recharge. Convinced that he still poses a threat to
his family after suddenly acquiring Elder status and not
fully capable of controlling his powers, Edmund has
emotionally cut himself off from his fiancée, Estelle.
This begins to make Edmund highly unsteady and Estelle is
left with no choice but to call on one of Edmund's old
friends -- and lovers -- to help sort things out.
On top of all this, the rogue vampires who kidnapped Edmund
(see Breaking Midnight) have since crossed to America to
begin their killing spree anew and continue in their quest
for world dominance. After Edward's oldest son -- and newly
turned vampire -- Graham, finds out that his one-time lover,
Pen has been attacked, he and his family depart for America
at once. Now they are on the trail of two ruthless
vampires who have found a way to make themselves not only
stronger but also more dangerous than ever before.
Can Edmund find peace within himself to save what
ultimately could cost him his life, and can Graham and Pen
overcome their insecurities to face the growing love that
they have for one another? As before with the two previous
books in this trilogy, Saving Midnight is filled
with multiple subplots, intense emotions, sizzling sex, and
action galore. And also as noted in my other review,
though this book could be read as a standalone, it is best
read as part of the trilogy to achieve the full effect of
what has taken place and what is happening overall. I
never fail to thoroughly enjoy reading one of Ms. Holly's
novels and this book was no exception.

Graham Fitz Clare became a vampire to save his adoptive father from a deadly enemy. Sadly, the price of that rescue may have been too high. Edmund’s captors are at large again, and are amassing the sort of power that could make them unstoppable. In the end, the love the Fitz Clares share with each other could be all that stands between them and a desperate storm of destruction.
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Vampire, Sensual, Historical 1930's
