Description

If Lord Donovan Trent had his way, he would spend his days carelessly wooing the women of London society. Instead, he found himself banished to the English countryside of Cornwall, forced by the decrees of his father's will to run his family's tin mines and find a country bride. The last thing the handsome lord needed was a local lass sticking her nose into his affairs, but that seemed to be exactly what the parson's daughter Corisande Easton had in mind.

    Fun characters and a definite page turner. Can’t wait to read the next in the series.
  • Annoying characters

    The premise of the book was good but the main characters were very annoying. At times I wished they would go their separate ways!

    I just finished this, and only read it because I love to read books that are a part of a series, and this series starter was free. I have to echo the other reviewers about the main character. She is awful. She is so immature, haughty, and frankly not likable on any level. I couldn’t stand her ridiculous reasoning, and the way she handled situations regarding her husband in terms of communication. I would hope the rest of the series would be better, as the writing itself is solid. I’m not going to take the chance, or spend the money, as the others in this series are not free. I’m giving it 3 stars only because the author is engaging, and I appreciate her hard work.

    OMG! Let me say that the writing was great as was the story. I gave three stars because the Corie character outbursts were awful. I could've read this book in one day but I had to take breaks from Corie and her mouth. Understanding that she was young and her shoulders carried a heavy burden yet her treatment of Donovan was unforgivable. I feel that the writer should have pulled in her temper much sooner so that she would be adored.
  • Good, but Frustrating

    "Secrets of Midnight" is my first Miriam Minger read, and I found it to be an excellent, well-written historical romance. My only criticism is that there were way too many (Cori's) uncalled-for temper tantrums. Frustrating! I felt sorry for long-suffering Donovan. Enjoyed it, though and will buy the sequel.
  • Great Stuff!

    The story is good but the main character is VERY annoying. Having to force myself to finish the book and look past my frustration with the constant absurdity of the female lead.
