GovernessInRed’s Book review for “It Happened One Midnight”
Author: Julie Anne Long
My rating: A +++++
5 stars! A truly epic delight!
I just finished this book last night and loved every bit of it.
Although this book is number 8 in the Pennyroyal Green series, it can easily stand alone. A splendid read, well written and full of delicious chemistry. It also has the perfect amount of steam between Tommy (heroine) and Jonathan (hero).
The plot is simply fabulous! I love how Ms. Long writes. This is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
Laughing with him was strangely a bit like drinking champagne. She wanted more of it, and the more she had of it, the giddier she felt.
Thomasina de Ballesteros is one of the best female characters I’ve read in a long time. She’s strong and independent but she also is very human and her personality will make you fall in love with her.
Jonathan is an exceptional hero. He’s full of humor & wit. He’s also brave but vulnerable to an extent. I loved his character. He’s also very easy to love right from the beginning.
“Say it again.”
“I love you.” These magical powerful words that she never dreamed she’d be able to say to anyone.
And the look, look at what it did to Jonathan Redmond’s face when she said them. What a humbling power she held.
He recovered, and smiled a slow satisfied smile. “Of course you love me. How could you help it?”
He gathered her abruptly into his arms then, and he bent to kiss her senseless.
The banter between Tommy and Jonathan had me cracking up almost immediately. Ms. Long did an exceptional job making the characters come alive and be believable.
If you’ve never read historical romance before, take an irrevocable step and start with Julie Anne Long. You won’t regret it. 🙂
