When John Mason discovers that his fiancée's father has embezzled thousands of pounds from their mutual business, he's furious. When his betrothed, Miss Mary Chartley, flees, taking the money and all the evidence with her, he's outraged. He plans to bring the woman he once loved to account--and he’ll shed no tears when he does.
But when he finds Mary, she's not living a life of luxury. Instead, she's serving as a companion in exchange for a pittance. The more he attempts to untangle the truth, the more he remembers why he first loved Mary...and how much he wishes he could do so again.
What Happened at Midnight was previously published in the anthology Midnight Scandals.
Courtney Milan is one of my favorite historical romance authors, and stories like What Happened at Midnight are why. Sweet, sexy, romantic, and witty, her stories take you on an exciting adventure, sure to leave you with a smile on your face.
From the very first pages I knew this was going to be a story worth reading, and not just for the entertainment value. All of Ms. Milan’s books take us deep into the hearts, minds, and souls of the characters while reminding us again and again of what’s most important in life; loving and being worthy of love in return.
My sincerest thanks to Ms. Milan for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. As always, it was a pleasure!
