Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction or in this case at least just as strange.
Midnight Caller was inspired by true events I discovered during research although for the purpose of the story I changed the steward into a roustabout. To learn more about black life on the Mississippi please read Black Life on the Mississippi: Slaves, Free Blacks, and the Western Steamboat World by Thomas C. Buchanan.
I have written many historical fiction novels and historical romances. Midnight Caller remains my favorite. I hope you enjoy it, too.

4.5 stars. In picking up Haley Whitehall's Midnight Caller, I will admit I experienced a bit of hesitation. Not because of the talented author and surely not because of her writing. I did worry, however, at whether or not this story would guarantee a happy ending, something I like with my romances. After all, this is a romance set in the tumultuous period after the Civil War when relations between whites and African Americans were volatile. How could a love between a white woman and a freed black man end well, especially with the prejudiced eyes of society on them? In giving us historical accuracy, how would Ms. Whitehall deliver on the romance? Well, I can say she certainly does. And after a couple of fraught, exquisite pages, it wasn't so much about the HEA anymore for me. It was about allowing myself to get swept away in this historical tale. In this novella, the author still manages to capture a slice of life in antebellum America and illustrates opinions of the times. Her writing has dignity and authority and her romance makes one sigh. I won't give anything away and share whether or not I got my HEA. Suffice to say, Haley Whitehall offers a satisfying resolution with her heart-stopping story. I would be pleased to read more by this author.

Surprised me. But in a very good way. Though I do wish that the outcome wasn't made to be quite so simple. Considering the era we're in, in this story. And the harsh and often times scary reality these characters have had to endure, & live through. I wish things played out a bit more realistically in certain ways as the plot unfolded. But the outcome/ending was still great. If not just a little too rushed, but still great. :)

The little twist that made certain things possible, I loved. But I caught onto the clue of it, long before it's reveal.

Overall I did like this read and I would recommend it.

Happy Reading:)

This was good fast read. It just goes to prove you can't judge a book by its cover! Hawthorne was an evil, hateful man. My first time reading anything written by the author and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

For me, I am a romantic, yet also love reading stories (fiction or non-fiction) that take place in the 1800's. This book has it all! Haley Whitehall wrote this book in fiction, yet I found it historically basically correct.
She adds depth to the characters so well that in my mind's eye, I could see the characters. Also, her style of writing is so captivating that I just could not put this book down until the ending! Many fiction books, I read it and stop, come back, etc.

If you like romance books, I think that you will like this one as it is not too long, nor too short and very well written.

Hot historical bi-racial romance. Frederick is a roustabout who services lonely ladies on the side. It's a dangerous thing to do in the South. A black man can be hanged for laying with a white woman so there's inherent danger there, besides the fact he's afraid to lose his heart to Emma.

Emma is a recent widow who hides a scandalous family secret. In Frederick she meets someone who thrills her, accepts her and teaches her all the things she's missed. But she's in danger too - an unwanted suitor will stop at nothing to get her. When he threatens Frederick and has him tossed in jail on trumped up charges, it seems as though her life is over. We feel for Emma and her plight. It's easy to root for her and Frederick to get their happy ending.

I look forward to reading book 2 in the series!

I do not know this author, and I received the copy free through an online promotion. It is an "18 and over" novella (92 pages)and an easy read. I stayed up late to finish it.

This well written story is set in 1865 in Kentucky, by an author who understands the era. Frederick is a freedman who works as a roustabout by day and a "gentleman caller" by night. Emma, a white skinned, wealthy young widow, first meets him in this latter paid position, and they grow to love each other. The villain in this romance is a hateful man determined to make Emma his wife, but the most powerful problem they face is the attitude of whites toward mixed race couples.

There were a few awkward sentences, and the price seems a bit high for the length, but I can recommend this for those interested in this era in American history. The setting is believable and you will enjoy Emma and Frederick's journey to love.

Emma and Frederick's romance is heart warming and believable. The terrible obstacles and prejudices faced by colored people in this era can only be imagined by people like me. Ms Whitehall took a controversial subject and treated it with warmth and compassion. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading others by this author.

Midnight Caller by Haley Whitehall is a sensual novella that I didn't want to see end. Her story telling gift had me turning the pages, from start to finish, in one sitting.
Set in 1865, the story begins with Emma Bennetts' husband dying in a carriage accident. This sets her free and releases her from the loveless marriage she had endured. Emma decides to enjoy her freedom before wanting to settle down with a husband and to have a family.
Taking the advice of a prominent socialite she is acquainted with, Emma hires a black man as her lover and to fulfill her most intimate desires. Frederick works as a roustabout by day and a prostitute at night.
After their first night together Emma and Frederick become enraptured with each other. He knows better than to fall in love with a white woman and backs away to keep them both safe. How now can he protect Emma from the detestable Mr. Hawthorne who wants her to become his wife.
A captivating story of forbidden love and I look forward to more by this author.
