About the Author

Courtney Milan

Courtney Milan's debut novel was published in 2010. Since then, she's been a New York Times and a USA Today bestseller, and her books have received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Booklist. She's been a RITA finalist and an RT Reviewer's Choice nominee for Best First Historical Romance. Her second book was chosen as a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2010.

Courtney lives in the Rocky Mountains with her husband, a medium-sized dog, and an attack cat.

Carolyn Jewel

Carolyn Jewel was born on a moonless night. That darkness was seared into her soul and she became an award winning author of historical and paranormal romance. She has a very dusty car and a Master's degree in English that proves useful at the oddest times. An avid fan of fine chocolate, finer heroines, Bollywood films, and heroism in all forms, she has three cats and a dog. Also a son. One of the cats is his.

Sherry Thomas
Sherry Thomas burst onto the scene with PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTS, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2008. Her sophomore book, DELICIOUS, is a Library Journal Best Romance of 2008. Her next two books, NOT QUITE A HUSBAND and HIS AT NIGHT, are back-to-back winners of Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award for Best Historical Romance in 2010 and 2011. Lisa Kleypas calls her "the most powerfully original historical romance author working today."

Her story is all the more interesting given that English is Sherry's second language--she has come a long way from the days when she made her laborious way through Rosemary Roger's SWEET SAVAGE LOVE with an English-Chinese dictionary. She enjoys digging down to the emotional core of stories. And when she is not writing, she thinks about the zen and zaniness of her profession.

I bought this because the Sherry Thomas story here is intended to complement Ravishing the Heiress (Berkley Sensation), her latest HR that I thought was excellent. Not only that but the other 2 contributors here are also favorite HR writers. How could I miss with that line-up?

The 3 stories by the 3 authors are unified by taking place at the same house, Doyle's Grange, in the hills of Exmoor, each at a different period of time, but the 3 stories are only tenuously connected to each other. I wish the connection had been slightly stronger but they are tied together better than some other collections I've read.

Jewel's "One Starlit Night" begins the trilogy and takes place in 1813. The H and h here meet again at Doyle's Grange 10 years after they were teenaged lovers. He had married in the meantime and is now widowed and she has remained single. They learn some truths about themselves and about what caused their separation and must accept that it's OK to reignite that young love. Well, I'm a fan of Jewel's work but this story was truly tedious. For every 2 steps forward that the plot advances, it seems to take one step back. Actually it seemed like 1 forward for 2 back, but that's impossible because it did finally reach its HEA. (2 stars)

Courtney Milan's story "What Happened at Midnight" takes place in 1856 and there's an actual story here. There may even be a bit too much plot for the number of pages but it was an interesting read. Here we have an engaged couple separated by the heroine's father's embezzlement and the hero's belief that she is involved.

I bought this for the Sherry Thomas story but I read the entire thing. Each story was surprisingly grim or had grim elements. I started disliking the anthology on the first story. I found the second story mildly interesting. And, I hated Sherry Thomas' story (because I hated the heroine in her earlier appearance in Ms. Thomas' "Ravishing the Heiress"- you just can't like all the heroines all the time.) All in all, I would not recommend this anthology.

The anthology's device tying all the stories together is a country cottage called Doyle's Grange. There are also some crossover appearances of characters from one story into another but they are fairly superficial appearances.

The stories are well written but I didn't like the actual stories themselves.

1. One Starlit Night by Carolyn Jewel. I didn't like it. I think if an author is going to include a seriously traumatic backstory, then that backstory had better be addressed well and sensitively. A short novella simply doesn't have enough room when you also include a scheming/annoying(?) sister-in-law, a rotten engagement, and star-crossed lovers. Especially, when the traumatic backstory is the crux of the whole matter. And, as to my personal preference, I don't take such matters so lightly that they can be throwaway backstories to be simply resolved with a single line of dialogue. Either it was a really big deal or it wasn't. If it wasn't, then please keep it out of my entertainment reading. I get very suspicious that these traumatic backstories are included only to add gravitas to a story that doesn't necessarily need any gravitas. Sometimes, a romance is simply lovely as a romance. And, an interfering parent CAN be enough of an obstacle to young love.

I was very disappointed in MIDNIGHT SCANDALS, the e-book anthology by Courtney Milan, Sherry Thomas, and Carolyn Jewel. Courtney Milan's THE GOVERNESS AFFAIR is just about a perfect novella, so I know that she can do it; unfortunately, like her last novella (THREE WEDDINGS AND A MURDER), she didn't do it in this one either. Oddly enough, the minor characters are the real strengths in two of these novellas.


Courtney Milan's selection explores a wife being totally controlled and isolated by her husband in a time when there is no legal solution. He refuses to allow her to do anything, read anything, go anywhere, see anyone (including her brother), all in the guise of "protecting her." Frankly, if she had been the heroine, it would have been a more interesting book. Instead, our heroine is this woman's companion who is running from her father's investors who were defrauded. As you would expect, the writing is fine, but it lacks Milan's past depth and detail. This book is just forgettable, that's all. Grade: C

A lot of Carolyn Jewel's selection are sex scenes which were so usual that I pretty much skimmed them. The h&h were lovers years before, but he married someone else for reasons that come out in the book. His regret for marrying his wife because he was never able to love her (being still in love with the heroine) did not endear him to me, but instead, just made him seem weak. You know how you want to scream at a couple in the midst of the Big Misunderstanding, "Just spit it out, already!"? Well, I wanted to scream, "Just ask her to marry you, you dolt!" The real strength in the novella was the heroine's sister-in-law, who uses her weakness and voiced concern to control people around her "for their own good.
