Mistress by Midnight by Nicola Cornick

From Amazon: Merryn Fenner is on a mission to ruin the Duke of Farne. A beautiful bluestocking with a penchant for justice, Merryn has waited ten years to satisfy her revenge against sensual, mysterious Garrick Northesk. Her family name had been tarnished at his hands, her life destroyed. And now she intends to return the favor—by finding the true heir to the duke's title and disinheriting Garrick.

Yet when a disaster traps Merryn and Garrick together, white-hot desire stirs between the two sworn enemies. Her reputation utterly compromised, Merryn is forced to do the one thing she cannot bear: accept the scandalous marriage proposal of the man she has vowed to ruin.

I will admit that this is the first "romance" novel I have finished reading (I would start some and lose interest) this book however held my interest. I was slightly impatient with this book and yet I still enjoyed reading it and didn't stop until I absolutely had to.  The relationship between the two was interesting, what frustrated me was the denial they were both in. It was obvious what the outcome would be and what their true feelings were towards eachother. Merryn is very naive and honest, it was nice to see her finally come out of her shell a bit and own up. As for Garrick, well he was just charming throughout the entire novel. I don't think I can come up with any faults of his, and that suits me just fine.  

I give this book 3.5 owls!

  1. Although I do not read many historical romances, I must admit that there is something about them that makes you unable to put the book down. I feel that way with Philippa Gregory's work.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment :)
