#62 - "A Kiss at Midnight" by Eloisa James

A Kiss at Midnight

Eloisa James

Happily Ever After..., Book 1

Read from the 27th of April until the 28th of April. 


Miss Kate Daltry doesn't believe in fairy tales . . . or happily ever after.

Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince . . . and decides he's anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman - a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions.

Gabriel likes his fiancee, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him.

Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after.

Unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble . . .

Unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune . . .

Unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

My rating:
4.5 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
I love fairytale re-tellings & I love historical romances, so I enjoyed this book a lot. It was just so much fun & so funny, with lovable characters & it was a book that I couldn't put it down. This was the first book by Eloisa James that I've read & I fell in love a little with her writing style while reading it. Definitely a book I'll read again. I highly recommend this book.
