Book Release Day Review: Midnight’s Wild Passion by Anna Campbell (@NetGalley)(Rating 4.5 Wine Glasses)

Posted May 1, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 0 Comments


From Goodreads: London’s most notorious seducer, Nicholas Challoner lives solely for revenge . . .

The dashing, licentious Marquess of Ranelaw can never forgive Godfrey Demarest for ruining his sister—now the time has come to repay the villain in the same coin. But one formidably intriguing impediment stands in the way of Nicholas’s vengeance: Miss Antonia Smith, companion to his foe’s unsuspecting daughter.

Having herself been deceived and disgraced by a rogue—banished by her privileged family as a result and forced to live a lie—Antonia vows to protect her charge from the same cruel fate. She recognizes Ranelaw for the shameless blackguard he is and will devote every ounce of her intelligence and resolve to thwarting him. 

Yet Antonia has always had a fatal weakness for rakes . . .

Received from NetGalley

What I Loved: Oh what a fun, wild ride this rake and his ruined lady sent us on!  I loved every single character (good and bad) in Midnight’s Wild Passion. You will laugh often at the gumption displayed by the women,even when you didn’t know it till much later what they were up too–nice little twist Anna Campbell.  My favorite moments were the nose to nose exchanging of barbs between Nicholas and Toni and then reading what they were really thinking. They were fantastic leading characters and each exchange they had you could see the spark getting bigger. I almost dare you not to root for them and want to throttle them at the same time.  It was a very entertaining read.

What I Liked: Cassie and I hope she gets her own book.  That character was brilliant for the function she had in this book but I feel there are so many more fun layers to see of her.

Complaints: Not a single one…

Why I gave it a 4.5 (5 on Goodreads): This book was just a shining example of Historical Romance done right.  The settings were fantastic, the characters layered yet they did hold to the standards of what was expected, and the humor/barbing/bantering was excellent.  If you like Historical Romance I don’t think you will go wrong with this book.

Who I would recommend it too: Historical Romance Readers
