STROKE OF MIDNIGHT
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Drake’s flair for mystery blended with humor and passion will delight readers. Her utterly enchanting tale sweeps fans into a charming story where the characters (especially the elderly aunt and her precious pup) win readers’ hearts and the plot will keep them turning the pages — while wishing they had those shoes!
The Cinderella Sisterhood’s next member finds life is hardly a fairy tale since her fiancé accused her father of theft. Laura broke her engagement and fled to Portugal with her father. But when her father is murdered on a return trip to England, she accepts a position as elderly Lady Josephine’s companion. Laura feels safe until she discovers her ex-fiancé, Alexander Ross, the Earl of Copley, is Josephine’s nephew. The passion they shared hasn’t diminished; in fact, it’s more heated then ever. Before the end of the night, they’ll find a way to expose a ruthless thief and reclaim their love — all with the help of a glorious pair of shoes. (ST. MARTIN’S, Jun., 352 pp., $7.99)
