A very lighthearted historical romance from Jacquie D'Alessandro, "Tempted at Midnight" is the final book in her 'Literary Ladies Reading Circle' series.
Her books contain the perfect blend of romance, humor and mystery.

Ambitious American millionaire Logan Jennsen sensed danger. That familiar feeling of menace was back again after all these years. He was being watched. Somebody was trying to either ruin him, kill him or both. His sense of tension had peaked because Logan had been distracted of late. The object of his fascination is none other than the supremely snobby aristocratic beauty Lady Emily Stapleford. So why in the hell couldn't he stop thinking about her? It was because of that damn kiss three months ago that Logan couldn't forget. Why in the world did Emily kiss him? She didn't like him, even thought him an uncouth American and only tolerated him because her friends did. Did she simply want to taste a commoner or worse did she think that he would forgive the debts her father owed him? That question tied him up in knots -not that he would ever admit it. And now, Emily had that familiar mischievous sparkle in her eyes again and that meant that she was up to something. And Logan was determined to find out while ferreting out the danger.

Emily is definitely up to something and that's saving her family from ruination. She's determined not to accept a marriage of convenience. There had to be another way. All three of her closet friends were blissfully in love and adored by their husbands. She dreamed of the same for herself. But her time was running out. Luckily Emily had a fool proof plan. She'd get the funds for her family by selling her book. Only problem is that no publisher was interested in a tale of a woman Vampire. Undaunted, Lady Emily comes up with a scheme to stir interest and scare the living daylights out of half the ton. But someone is on to her. That pesky, ruggedly handsome, American who haunts her thoughts day and night.

But Logan and Emily must both tread carefully.

A very lighthearted historical romance from Jacquie D'Alessandro, "Tempted at Midnight" is the final book in her 'Literary Ladies Reading Circle' series. Four women who use an innocuous group title to read salacious stories...sound familiar my friends? Of course, we have it easy today compared with the daring of these four women!

Emily can't quite believe it. Her family teeters on the brink of financial ruin! Now they are looking to Emily herself to make a 'good' match, meaning marry money, to save the rest of the family. All Emily ever wanted was to marry for love. So she concocts a brilliant idea! She'll write a smashingly successful lady vampire novel, and use the proceeds to save her family. The only problem is, none of the publishers seem interested. Well then, Emily will make sure all the ton can talk about is a vampiress on the loose. Somehow, Emily never expected her plan to develop a few hitches...missing cloaks, handsome magnates, stolen kisses, and attempted murder?

Logan is rich...filthy rich. However, he's also an American. Yet he's finding that most of the ton are perfectly willing to overlook his roots in favor of his money. Except for Lady Emily, who seems to always look down her beautiful, snooty nose at him...when she's not kissing him that is. He knows she's up to something and he's darned sure going to find out what it is...

Emily and Logan were so funny to read about! Trying so hard NOT to think about each other, and then always finding themselves alone in libraries and ravishing each other! Ms D'Alessandro really stoked up the heat between these two and I had a blast laughing my way through their unusual encounters.

I was so excited after reading the predecessor to this book, Seduced at Midnight (I think it was the best in the series, highly recommend it, and think the overall ratings for it are not indicative of how great the story is), and couldn't wait to finally read Logan and Emily's story. My expectations may have been a little too high.

I thought there would be more mystery and I actually felt like this story was a little scattered. As with all of this author's books, the humor was fantastic....it's what she does best. However, for me it felt like it came a little in the wrong places. Also, in some of this author's books, the descriptions are sometimes dragged out and thoughts are repetitive. I thought that happened too much in this book and I found myself wanting to skim through those parts because of it.

The beginning of the book grabbed me and I thought it was going to be a very suspenseful story, but there wasn't much more until the end, when everything got tied up neatly in the last few pages. Also, the heroine's scheme for avoiding marriage was just too silly to be believable for me. I just couldn't get into it because of that and I couldn't feel the love grow very much between the hero and heroine...seemed like instant lust but not much emotional connection until the end. I think revelations about Logan should have come earlier in the story...at least more tidbits tying it into the mystery more so you're bringing that into the body of the book - especially because the mystery was introduced so well. From the beginning and with the history of these characters in this series, I thought there was so much potential for this story. For me, it just didn't come close. There were things I felt were never completely explained, just kind of stuck in there...
