Mine till Midnight

Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas
When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

Wealthy beyond most men’s dreams, Cam has tired of society’s petty restrictions and longs to return to his “uncivilized” Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship—but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter….

Like most of Lisa Kleypas's books this was good. Its a historical romance and if you read her other books you'll know the character of Cam Rohan, the 1/2 gypsy, part Math Wizard, all round dark brooding hero.

He's wealthy but a social outcast because of his gypsy 1/2 (except to a small group of aristocrats whom he calls friends) and manages the most popular gentleman's club in London. Amelia's brother (who just attained a title) seems hell bent on killing himself due to a the death of his beloved. Being the glue that holds her family together, she finds comfort in Cam's arms. And per the formula for historical romances, they fall in love. Not original but well written with entertaining characters.

Story/Plot: 3/5
