    Courtney Milan is one of my favorite historical romance authors and stories like What Happened at Midnight are why Sweet sexy romantic and witty her stories take you on an exciting adventure sure to leave you with a smile on your face From the coverWhen John Mason discovers that his fiancée's father has embezzled thousands of pounds from their mutual business he's furious When his betrothed Miss Mary Chartley flees taking the money and all the evidence with her he's outraged He plans to bring the woman he once loved to account and he’ll shed no tears when he doesBut when he finds Mary she's not living a life of luxury Instead she's serving as a companion in exchange for a pittance The he attempts to untangle the truth the he remembers why he first loved Maryand how much he wishes he could do so againWhat Happened at Midnight was previously published in the anthology Midnight ScandalsFrom the very first pages I knew this was going to be a story worth reading and not just for the entertainment value All of Ms Milan’s books take us deep into the hearts minds and souls of the characters while reminding us again and again of what’s most important in life; loving and being worthy of love in return My sincerest thanks to Ms Milan for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review As always it was a pleasure

    I had read and enjoyed Her Every Wish another Milan novella so I hoped I would like this one too And it was okay but it seemed to be missing something The characters were a bit bland and I didn't uite understand why the nephew was supposed to receive money I may have missed it being explained I didn't get why at the end view spoilerthey needed to come back to this house after forty years and end up rescuing puppies hide spoiler

    Stuff you can generally rely on getting when you read a Courtney Milan penned story complicated issues for the hero heroine or both a headstrong heroine who wants to do than the lot assigned to her in life Let's not also forget that she's also very sure of her sexuality for the most part a hero who understands the value of loving and supporting the woman in his life credible real life angstAs such this story ticked all the boxes It was by no means disappointing but if you're looking for a pretty solid story this will do the trick

    Review posted on Demon Lover's Books More45This was originally published in the anthology Midnight Scandals see my review hereThis story begins at the precise moment that Mary’s father’s business partners are ransacking her house looking for the money he embezzled Mary is in the process of running away when one of the partners decides to beat the information out of her Her fiancé John steps in but he doesn’t stop her from leaving him You see he was one of her father’s business partners tooMary’s whole life changed from that moment on She faces hardships that she should never have had to face And she winds up in an unusual position She is a lady’s companion but the husband is over protective of the two womenWhen John ends up near the Grange 18 months later everything is thrown into upheaval And for the betterI love Courtney Milan’s writing The amount of emotion she is always able to evoke amazes me The only thing I really didn’t like is that once John admitted something to Mary she was upset but she took it in stride Sometimes that works sometimes it doesn’t I wanted from her Her reaction was just too easy for my tasteThis was a wonderful story though and I love who Mary became I also love that John appreciated who she became Milan writes such wonderful heroes

    35 StarsYesss Courtney Milan's novella game is so strong I think it's really hard to pull off any novella because it's hard to fit all the plot character development and smut into a less than 200 page story I liked this one for several reasons First the portrayal of a possessive abusive person was incredibly realistic Most spousal abuse comes in the form of subtle acts verbal and emotional meant to manipulate and this was very accurate Kudos to Milan for a realistic portrayal of abuse Second the dialogue was wonderful and not at all tedious It was fast paced which I lovedAnd even though they had the plainest commonest boringest in the world Wait for itJohnand MaryLol it's honestly been so long since I've read a novel with such plain names But they were both sweet and competent characters flawed yet not annoyingly so Both very self aware and I liked their relationship And the SEX Well let's just say it wasn't as tame or boring as I thought it would be given their names lol still can't get over it cause it got pretty steamy

    This was a wonderful romance about a love thought gone Mary Chartley is forced to take a position as a lady's companion after her fathers death and subseuent revelations about his embezzlement To make matters worse her fiance John is one of the men he stole from Devastated she returns his ring and flees saying she has no idea where the money went When John should suddenly show up at a neighboring estate of her new position she is sure he is there to turn her in But John sees how subdued Mary has become he is determined to find out what happened once and for all As they find scant time together as Mary is being 'protected' by her employer and has no time for herself they slowly find their way back to each other and a very satisfying conclusion to the embezzlement dilemma Courtney Milan is one of my favorite authors and she has yet again crafted a romance that is beautiful and deep with an eye for detail that I enjoy I may have learned a bit about drainage systems than I would have liked but it sets the tone for the period very well 4 12 stars

    The best thing about reading a Courtney Milan's book is they're always refreshing I love the sobering topics she usually infuses like feminism and other relevant issues The otp is also cute so there's that

    Classic plotline of she done him wrong or HAS she? Not a bad rendition of it but not Courtney Milan's most inspired piece

    a novella that reminds me of the fact that no matter her faults courtney milan is still far and away my favorite romance novelist this was a perfectly satisfying little snack that did a lot of things right and really nothing wrong for meI can't recall reading any other romance novels that dealt with the type of abuse we see here I think milan handled it deftly and in such a way that we feel its full chilling impact but not for so long that the novella loses its untroubling tone I also much preferred this early milan novella's politics to those of the lady always wins which was also first published in 2012 this one felt much like the milan I know am comfortable with and appreciatemary chartley's father embezzles thousands of pounds from his business partners including john mason mary's recent fiancé before killing himself john is furious with mary and thinks she's in on it; the fact that she flees and goes into hiding doesn't help the case for her innocence however after managing to track her down once in the employee of sir walter patsworth and his wife it's difficult for him to untangle the threads of his anger his hurt and his attraction to herthere is a lot of talk of SOIL and DRAINAGE in this book so much so that it actually had me looking shit up very interesting tbh

    I totally thought that I’ll never finish it after starting and getting to chapter 4 a few month ago Yesterday around midnight I decided that it was time for bad decisions so I started to finish it — that resulted in me not going to my two morning classes I know bad bad badNevertheless I actually stopped the first time just before things started to be interesting My main problem the first time was something to do with how John acted and the whole ordeal I probably just wasn’t in the mood This novella is another one that Courtney Milan did well I still appreciate how she makes her stories out of common but fairly serious domestic situations of the past This one portrays an abusive marriage and how a woman is powerless in those For me this didn’t work as well as the two others I’ve read by her but I really liked the connection of the main characters Also the epilogue was a nice touchSolid 35 stars
