    One thought on “Mine Till Midnight”

    1. Someone sprinkled crack onto the pages of this series. I have no other explanation for what is happening to me right now. I know you're probably expecting a review. And I'd love to write one. But the next book is staring up at me, whispering things. "Come on, Navessa. Just one more hit"

    2. Can The Hathaways series compete with Lisa Kleypas's fantastic Wallflowers series? Well I had my doubts, but if the first book, the wonderful Mine Till Midnight, is any indication of how this series will play out, my answer is a resounding Yes!This book just flew by for me--I never once wanted to put it down! I loved the Hathaway family, with all their eccentricities, although (other than young Beatrix with her love for critters and her 'sticky fingers', and of course eldest sibling Leo with his [...]

    3. There’s something just so special about a historical romance done the Lisa Kleypas way. Light, yet with substance. So much sexual passion and yet such tender love. Her books are always a delightful escape and her heroes are always so sigh-worthy.This is a touching story about a tight knit, albeit quirky, family consisting of four sisters, Amelia, Win, Poppy, and Beatrix; their one brother, Leo, and Merripen, who as a young boy was wounded and left for dead following a Gypsy hunt. He was brough [...]

    4. I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK.How in the world did it take me so long to start this one? Lisa Kleypas is the real queen of historical romance. Just when I thought I couldn’t love her books more, she proved me wrong. Mine Till Midnight is exceptionally wonderful! This book has everything I want in my HR read.A solid plot and interesting story.A determined and persistent alpha hero with a protective nature and possessive streak.A heroine who is strong and intelligent, but still very traditionally feminin [...]

    5. I hadn't read any Kleypas for a while when I started reading this book. It reminded me of how effective and seductive Kleypas is as a writer. She really does write a beautiful love story. Her stories are dreamy and elegant, full of imagery that draws me into the story and out of my everyday existence. She really is a wordsmith to this reader.I know a lot of fans were unhappy that Cam was not paired with Daisy, but I have no regrets. Cam and Amelia were meant to be together. Cam was searching for [...]

    6. 5+ stars – Historical RomanceIt simply doesn’t get any better than Lisa Kleypas. I loved the Wallflowers series, and I’ve been looking forward to Cam’s story, ever since he so completely captivated me in Devil in Winter. Instead of flying through this lightning fast like I did with the Wallflower books, I took my time and savored it, which was well worth it because Cam Rohan is like the finest, rarest dark chocolateexotically decadent and sinfully delicious!Mine Till Midnight is a beauti [...]

    7. La verdad es que empecé a leer este libro sin estar muy convencida, pues esta autora no terminaba de convencerme, pero para mi sorpresa, esta historia me encantó: ) Así que será cuestión de seguir ;)

    8. Cam is a gypsy living in London, working at a gaming hall. He also has a "good luck curse". See, gypsies aren't supposed to accumulate money, stuff, or homes to live in. They need to be free, man! But, Cam can't help accumulating wealth. Every time he tries to give it away, it comes back to him. It's like some ugly casserole dish that you get for a wedding present. You keep making casseroles and taking it to people who you know aren't dependable. But, dammit if they don't wash the stupid thing a [...]

    9. The Hathaways are a strange and eccentric bounceWhy bounce??? This family consist from four sisters and one brotherAnd every single one of them is eccentric, with their own problems and you need a lot of courage to be a part of this familyBut i can not talk to you about all of them because each one of them has his/hers own book, so you have to wait about the othersIn this book, we will talk about Amelia Hathaway, the older from the sistersAfter the lost of their parents, Amelia took the role of [...]

    10. Excelente comienzo para la Serie “The Hathaways”.Empecé a leer esta historia sin haber leído la sinopsis y, por lo tanto, sin saber que el protagonista era Cam Rohan (que ya había aparecido en la serie “Floreros” de la misma autora y que, en su momento, me había parecido un personaje muy interesante y con mucho potencial). Cuando Cam entró en escena se me aceleró el corazón y me puse muy contenta de leer su historia. Me encantó la pareja que formó con Amelia (gran protagonista f [...]

    11. "Take me away."Mine Till Midnight is the first book in The Hathaways Series and to say I am late for the party is the understatement of the century. I have never considered myself a Historical Romance fan and yet, I have become a Hathaway addict! In this first book in the series, we are introduced to the Hathaway family. Amelia, the oldest, has spent her entire life caring for her younger siblings. After experiencing heartbreak, she has decided that she is to live the life of a spinster and spen [...]

    12. 4 Hummingbird Stars***Spoilers***When it comes to historical romance I am very picky. Over the years I have found that a lot of HR will have cheating and mistresses in their books. So much so that I quit reading HR books until I discovered and was able to see spoilers and make sure there would be no cheating in that book. I was craving some HR and a friend said to try Lisa Kleypas that they loved her. So when I was out book shopping I found the whole Hathaway Series for 4.00, bought it and here [...]

    15. I loved Cam Roham since his first appearance in 'Devil in Winter', so I was more than thrilled when Kleypas made him the 1st hero in her new Hathaway series. Unfortunately, his story didn´t live up to my expectations. Don´t get me wrong, Cam was still as interesting as ever in 'Mine Till Midnight', but little else was up to par. :(Where do I begin? Well, let´s take Amelia Hathaway, Cam´s heroine. She was nice enough, but I just didn´t feel her "connection" with Cam. I got the feeling that s [...]

    16. When I started reading Teresa Medeiros’ romance novels, I started to really get into romance novels. I finally heard about another romance author and her name was Lisa Kleypas! “Mine Till Midnight” is the first book I have read from Lisa Kleypas and it is also the first book of the Hathaway family series. If you have not read a romance novel full of sexual tension, drama and mystery, “Mine Till Midnight” is definitely a romance novel that is worth checking out!The Hathaway family (Leo, [...]

    17. So what is Mine Till Midnight?HmmI like to think of it as maybe one of those PBS period pieces like Downton Abbey only the HBO version, if you get my drift.But what is it? Well, it’s a very thinly plotted historical romance, and I liked it more than I thought I would. I chalk that up to Lisa Kleypas subtly skillful prose and the presence of a good cast and a big fat English Manor fallen into disrepair. I mean, I guess that I’ve seen so many decorating and home renovation shows (and having do [...]

    18. Coming from different walks of life Amelia Hathaway and Cam Rohan couldn't be more different then day and night, but just click together like two puzzles pieces making a whole.Amelia comes from a family of so called misfits and as the oldest female has taken the role of protector of her family's welfare at the risk of danger and the occasional headache. Coming into a recent wealth and a title for her bother to boot. Amelia and her family are thrust into a well to do society one that they have ne [...]

    19. Updated review after re-read 5/3/15. Bumped up to 4.5 stars!"I find you thoroughly, deeply interesting. I want to open you like a book and read every page." A smile curled the corners of his lips ad he added huskily, "Footnotes included".Cam Rohan is the most wonderful hero of all times. Cam Rohan is protective, sweet, strong, wicked, charming, hot and everything you could ever wish for in a hero. He is mystic in the best sense of the word."You're like someone from a fairy story written in a lan [...]

    20. I can’t tell if Lisa Kleypas is A, a genius or B, has a time traveling machine in her office or something because her books act like some sort of portal that takes you back to London in 1848! I’m thinking it’s the former because Kleypas knows her stuff when it comes to writing historical romances. With that being said, I absolutely ADORED Mine Till Midnight! Thank you Leah, my lover for sending me your copy of this book! Know that your book is well-loved and cherished in my hands! I will b [...]

    21. Una historia preciosa y tremendamente emotiva. Me encantó la forma envolvente en que Cam, nuestro protagonista, logra poco a poco romper las barreras de independencia y autoprotección de Amelia, quien, después de la muerte de sus padres, asumió la responsabilidad de sus cuatro hermanos. Además del argumento romántico central del libro, la novela destaca por muchos otros componentes, incluyendo algunos de tipo paranormal. No me aguanté y comencé de inmediato el segundo libro de la serie, [...]

    22. 3.75 Stars I read this series out of order. I kind of wished I didn’t. This is Amelia and Cam’s story, but a lot of Kev and Win’s story is in this one. Kev and Win’s book is the next one. So if you haven’t started this series, you should start with this book.Also, when I read the other book I had a certain expectation for Leo, who is the oldest Hathaway brother, so when I read this book I was really disappointed. Just food for thought.I really liked Amelia. She’s the oldest and stron [...]

    23. What's this strange feeling that's warming me up from the inside and making me feel dizzy with joy? *looks around the room, bewildered*But yes! It's the sweet, lovely, sexy, thrilling, incredible Historical Romance expressing all its potentiality! It's been ages since I've felt this way and almost didn't recognize it.Dear GR friends and members of this community in general, please meet Cam, the biggest HR, period movies and TV series, and history enthusiast on the planet. She's watched the Sissi [...]

    24. Amelia Hathaway, even though the second oldest among her family, takes responsibility for her family. Her older brother Leo, has recently come into a title, and ever since he lost his love, he has gone on the deep end, ever since he lost his love, he has never been the same. In London, Amelia goes in search of him, seeking Cam Rohan's help. Cam is dark and dangerous, but he excites Amelia more than anyone ever has, even though some of her family and society will never accept him. Amelia finds Ca [...]

    25. My first Lisa Kleypas book, and I had some pretty high expectations considering that she is highly regarded by most of my GR friends. To my delight, they were quite right.Mine Till Midnight was a quick, highly-readable, story. We get to meet the quirky, eccentric Hathaway family, lead by the highly-responsible Amelia. As she struggles to keep everybody in check, including a self-destructive brother, her path crosses with Cam Rohan. Cam, a man torn between two worlds, is enraptured by Amelia's ch [...]

    26. Rating: 4.5 / 5If I'd noticed back when this book came out that it was about Cam Rohan from the Wallflowers series (I think he was just in one book), I would have read it much sooner! Cam was such an intriguing character when Kleypas gave us a peak at him before. I was actually rather disappointed that he didn't end up with Daisy. But I'm glad Kleypas brought Cam back and let us see more of him. I ended up liking him even more!The heroine of Mine Till Midnight is a "spinster" named Amelia Hathaw [...]

    27. 5++ Stars*All Time Favorite Book List*If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. I honestly haven't enjoyed a book this much in AGES. Cam Rohan is now firmly planted very close to the top of my list of all time favorite leading men.The chemistry between Cam & Amelia is just breathtaking. I have always been a sucker for an Alpha male, and Cam is about as Alpha as they come. When he finally sets his mind to having Amelia, he won't let anyone or anything stand in his way. He's fierce, compell [...]

    28. Pooka at Midnight★★★★★ (This is a review of the audiobook.)It was pure pleasure to return to the first in Lisa Kleypas’ Hathaways series and the wonderful Rosalyn Landor, the narrator, brought it to life all over again. She does an excellent job of discerning these unforgettable characters’ voices with their multiple accents and distinct personalities. She helped me remember why this quirky family tugged on my heart strings the first time around. You can hear Cam and Amelia discove [...]

    29. The oldest Hathaway sister, Amelia is the most reasonable and levelheaded, she's strong, determined, and loyal. I was frustrated with her continued refusal of Cam (my love) and her naivete concerning that bastard Christopher Frost. I loved her interactions with her sisters. I hated that she always had to take care of everything, even though she didn't mind most of the time. And, I have to say that I absolutely loved when she finally realized that she couldn't live without Cam.I abso-freaking-lut [...]

    30. I don't think I can say it enough: Lisa Kleypas is AMAZING.I wasn't sure what to expect at first with this book. I definitely didn't expect a ghost incorporated into the story. It sounds weird right? And though, while at first I didn't like the direction of that plot twist, it suddenly became an intricate part of the whole story making it much more mystical.But what really sold this was Cam Rohan. He was sublime. He was the alpha with the quiet disposition that could challenge the most rigorous [...]
