RT Rating

Lady Arabella Blydon is overly curious about her new neighbor, military hero, Lord John Blackwood. She takes it upon herself to welcome him and to pull him out of his solitary shell.

John is amused by Belle's insatiable curiosity about him. No matter how much he tries to keep her at arm's length he just can't keep away from her or her sweet passionate embrace.

What follows is a delicious romping courtship. Slowly Belle heals his tortured soul and the lovers plan to marry. But first they must find and eliminate the murderer silently stalking John.

Delicious, funny, wonderful! Ms. Quinn has a unique, entertaining style that will keep her fans glued to the pages and coming back for more of her delightful romances. SENSUAL (Dec., 384 pp., $4.99)

Dancing at Midnight

Submitted by Robin in PA on May 23, 2010 - 6:50pm.

Lady Arabella Blydon is staying at her cousin's home in the country when she meets Lord John Blackwood. Bella finds John intriguing. He is a wounded war hero who one minute is very cordial, and the next minute he is very cold. John, who blames himself for the death of an innocent girl, feels that Bella deserves a better man. Even though he finds himself falling in love with her, he keeps pushing her away.

I really liked both Bella and John and thought they were a great couple. The only drawback with this book was that I really didn't understand John blaming himself for the young girl's death. I think that is why I couldn't quite give this book 5 Stars. Otherwise, I found this book a quick, entertaining read. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
