Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas description:
When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.
Wealthy beyond most men’s dreams, Cam has tired of society’s petty restrictions and longs to return to his “uncivilized” Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship—but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter…
The first time I read this book it was actually one of the last book in the series that I read, and it didn’t really seem to matter since each book is about a different couple, but I apparently enjoyed it more this time that I’m reading the series in the right order. I have the same complaint both times, and that’s Leo. Knowing how he does later on, it still doesn’t help you care for him any more in this book, and honestly it bothers me how the rest of the family just tiptoes around him at times, or just covers for him. Of course in that time, and the fact they all rely on him for the title he inherited it’s understandable, but every time he shows up it’s extremely off putting. However, I love the rest of the people. Amelia is trying to keep her family together when it seems like they have nothing but bad luck that keeps getting them further and further in trouble. She’s a loving sister, and is trying to figure out how to fit into a world that none of them ever though they’d be a part of. While Rohan is a fun character to read about, he’s rich and he hates it. As a Roma the idea of being wealthy and gentrified as he’s become is distasteful and yet no matter what he does it seems to come back even better for him, and it makes for some humorous discussions in trying to understand the culture of the Gypsies, and why he doesn’t fit in there or with the gadjo (non-romany) making him a rather different sort of hero for a book like this. But it’s really the little sisters, and the other Lord’s and Ladies that make a wonderful group of people that you just want to get to know better. I really can’t wait to read through this whole series again.
