5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, May 22, 2000
This review is from: Midnight Waltz (Mass Market Paperback)
"Midnight Waltz" is not your usual romance novel; there are some surprising twists and turns. First off, let me say that I love romance novels and if they are set in Louisiana, that's a big plus.
Amalie, the heroine, is in an arranged marriage to Julien Declouet. They live on a plantation named Belle Grove, with Julien's mother and sleep in separate bedrooms, as was the custom in those times. Julien's cousin, the handsome Robert Farnum, lives hereby and is a frequent visitor to Belle Grove. He respects his aunt, Julien's mother, and will do anything for her.
Julien and Amalie have been married for three months, but still the marriage has not been consumated, although he has tried once or twice. One night, Amalie is visited by a man who she thinks is her husband. Their interlude is wonderfully sexual and romantic, but it's so dark that she can't see his face and assumes it is her husband. At breakfast the next morning, Julien acts as if nothing transpired between himself and Amalie the night before which puzzles Amalie. But that night again, and the night after that, she is visited by her lover and they spend rapturous hours together-- and that is the setup for the rest of the story!
Jennifer Blake transports the reader to the bayous of Louisiana and the streets of New Orleans. "Midnight Waltz" has an intriguing, very dark side in addition to the romance. The story takes some surprising twists and turns which the reader really doesn't expect. The secondary characters are as vital to the story as the Amalie, Robert and Julien.
This is the first book by Jennifer Blake that I have read and it won't be my last. If you're in the mood for some romantic suspense and intrigue set in the steamy, sexy bayous, read this book.
