Tracy MacNish: Stealing Midnight

Here was also a fascinating parallel with Yeats play The Only Jealousy of Emer which begins with Cu Chulainn apparently dead only to be revived by his wife and lover The way they awaken him was very reminiscent of the opening scenes with Olwyn and Aidan when Olwyn xplicitly makes a comparison to Sleeping Beauty One of my favorite sections all too brief was when Aidan woke up in the stone cottage and thought he had been transported to medieval times All throughout there was a bit of a uestion of magicfairy tale The line between reality and magic was somewhat blurred Downsides Missed opportunity for PadraigMira side romance or next book I was very sad there is no book for Padraig since it seemed very set up in this book I thought Mira could have been redeemed until the laced oysters incident From then on she was a very overblown villain very A Final Story: Science, Myth, and Beginnings evil other woman I really dislike the You don t know you re beautiful that s what makes you beautiful trope I think it s fine for women to know they are beautiful and we could have appreciated Olwyn s lack of artifice without so much reliance on Mira as a foil IF YOU RE NOT A SPOILER LOVER LIKE ME PLEASE DON T GO BEYOND HEREWhat happened Initially I admired the heroine she had survived by wits alone for years and suffered cruelly at the hands of her mad man father and fought successfully the repulsive attentions of his male assistant all the while yearning desperately for freedom as you would I admired her forthrightness and her strength but then she had little to say or little he would listen to when the hero refused to let her be on her way weather not permitting and dragged her off to his lair and into a storm of censure not only from his family but from his fianc too and rightfully so At this point I would have cheered for our heroine if she d found that lost backbone and left without turning into this whining woman offering herself to a man whose fianc she d just bloody met I waited and I waited for her to take a very deep breath and come to her senses the hero after all was honour bound to his fiance the woman he d compromised naturally and to realise that perhaps she just might be jumping in too uickly too soon hadn t she just swapped one cage for a gilded other Okay she was in love with the hero I get it and he did give her the choice to stay or to leave himbut how muchxciting and a lot believable if he d been half the honourable man the book touted he was and he d sent her away for a few months or ven yearsbut alas I LOVED the beginning of this book but the middle dragged for me so I To discover that her father's latest subject a breathtakingly handsome young man is still clinging to life Refusing to let him die Olwyn stops her father at gunpoint and flees determined to bring the innocent man to safetyThe son of aristocrats Aidan Mullin doesn't know what to make of the unusual intriguing Olwyn But as the pair make

5 5 5 5 5 did I mention this book is a five LOL OMG stop reading this review and go find out for yourself This book has verything it s sexy romantic sad loving It s just Abortion, Choice, and Contemporary Fiction everything now I could write and tell all but I won t trust me you want to read this and find out for yourself This book had me at the first page and never let me go I can t say itnough READ THIS BOOK You will not be sorry I m in love a re read for sure I thought this was a great book It was my first historical romance And I really liked it I met the author at a conference last year and after hearing her speak specifically about the research that went into writing this book I had to have itI thought the story was great with some good twists and turns I liked the heroinestrong most of the time I was very happy in the Lexikon der Medizin-Irrtümer end when she stood up for herself and fought for love instead of running away to protect him and his family The premise of this book is SO GREAT a dude is inssence buried alive body snatched and then rescued by the daughter of the mad scientist who bought the body And it was certainly a fun read with a great heroine but the dude was kind of a dirtbag so I don t really think he deserves her Some of this was pretty good the romance was pretty blah The characters didn t seem to have chemistry though they were good at talking as if they did The family intrigues were interesting I think this could have been of a saga and given the characters dimension This book starts off well and plot is somewhat original which is saying a lot but it uickly goes downhill once MCs are back to civilization Becomes mind numbing boring in the middle then turns irritating toward the FRITZI auf Sylt - ÖLMALEREI - Kunst in Fotobrillant-Druck end as heroine decides to keep secrets and we all know how well that generally goes With some five pages left to go hero tells her she better get packing only to change his mind two grafs later Get it on sale or from the library if you must There were so many aspects of this book The resurrection men and anatomy part was much less a feature of the book than I anticipated The author s note on the topic was so interesting particularly thestimate that 8% of English people at this time were buried alive Those pockets in coffin linings for vials of poison suddenly made a lot sense The weaving in of Welsh and Irish culture was very Big Little Man enjoyable and sadly unusual in a Regency Grandpa makes an off hand comparison of Aidan to Cu Chulainn which turned out to be very interesting in light of Aidan s houndguard dog The dog s death as in the Cu Chulainn myth marks a transition to Aidan as Olwyn s protector Set in the English countryside thisxuisite new Regency novel by MacNish reveals how one woman's courage wins her the love she had never dreamed she'd findWhile Olwyn Gawain lives as a virtual prisoner in her home her scientist father conducts chilling xperiments on stolen corpses in the dungeon of their keep One night Olwyn is shocked.

Nocked it down a starIt s still a historical romance but I recommend if you re looking for something a little different This was confusing but ultimately njoyable The cover is classic Regency romance but it s so far away from what one thinks of when thinking about that genre I liked it but it was very different and not without its problems It s gothic which is not ordinarily my thing The heroine Olwyn is kept in captivity Creating Lasting Value essentially by her father who is a mad anatomist obsessed with dissecting bodies to discover why people die after the death of his only son One of the bodies purchased from the grave robbers is the hero Aiden who isn t dead obviously otherwise the romance would ve taken a very strange turn This book purports to be set in 18061807 but it s a little without time Mostly it felt medieval orarly modern Much of the language read that way with the occasional glaring Understanding Markets and Strategy example of the 20th century The only character who felt recognisablyarly 19th century was the hero s Montana Dreams evil fianc Mira Nothing about the setting felt like 1800 That might have been the idea The romance between the two isarthy and Immerwelt - Der Pakt ethereal and sensual and yes very gothic It s about the descriptive language and conversations both of which were sometimes OTT between the two and the simmering danger from Olwyn s past and Aiden s too in the form of Mira This is not a romance which goes from ballroom to front room to pump house to bedroom and back butually it doesn t have Modern South Asia enormous shifts of location or massive drama save at the beginning and thend It s about the development of a relationship between two very different people who find they are ntirely right for one another despite being from different worlds although Aiden s a duke seemingly for the sake of it there s nothing particularly ducal about him or his family and they accept Olwyn very asily I really don t think it will be Ancestral Voices everyone s cup of tea but Injoyed the And Bid Him Sing experience It s a solid 35 stars for me and I ll probably look up one of thearlier ones Rhys Gawain is a pathetic old man who is close to being insane as one can be He wants to solve the mysteries of death and thinks by Aristotle Detective (Aristotle experimenting on corpses from the local cemetery he will be able to find the answers he seeks He pays grave robbers to supply him these bodies He uses his daughter Olwyn as his assistantven though she is sickened by it Her father s mind is slowly deteriorating and she wants to Bones, Clones, and Biomes escape her father s harsh coldstate where she ll be free from ridicule The people of Chester believe Olwyn is a witch with her long black hair Heir way toward Aidan's home he finds himself drawn to the alluring young woman who saved him from certain death Fiery and sensual Olwyn's very touch fuels a desire in Aidan too fierce to deny But when Olwyn learns he is hiding a heartbreaking secret Aidan must face a difficult choice or risk losing forever the love he so desperately nee.
