    1. Don t let that happen to me Her words shook Don t leave me to be what I ll become without you This is a review of the audio book as well as the story itself Once again Laura Kinsale has written an amazing novel, and Nicholas Boulton has made it real I can t even explain what he brings to the stories he narrates How he makes the hero and heroine so much than just characters in a book He doesn t merely read their lines, he exists in them The people, their lives, their passions and trials and triu [...]

    2. Llevaba con este libro dos meses, entre que he tenido mucho tiempo y los ratos que ten a para leer no me apetec a por que el libro es horroroso, as he tardado tanto Los personajes son odiosos, ella se puede llegar a entender en algunas cosas, pero es m s seca que la mojama y l tiene m s pajaritos en la cabeza Son tal para cual Encima es una historia que no tienes por donde cogerla, unas paranoias que se montan que te entra ganas de no seguir leyendo.En fin con un par de ovarios lo he terminado p [...]

    3. This was the first of Laura Kinsale s novels to appear in audiobook form, and I m warning you now the review is LONG and there may even be some fangirling involved If you want the short version, however the audio book of The Prince of Midnight is fantastic, so go and listen to it immediately As for the longer version I ve been following Laura Kinsale s blog pieces over at AudioGals in which she talks about bringing her books to audio about how she spent a long time listening to narrators because [...]

    4. No hab a leido ninguna novela de esta escritora anteriormente, pero la verdad es que no me dan ganas de intentarlo de nuevo al menos mientras me acuerde Me result tedioso, totalmente prescindible.Pertenece a la familia de los libros que se dejan sin acabar o que hubieses deseado dejar

    5. Y no le pongo una porque no soy tan mala y amo como escribe Laura que si no Respira Viridiana, respira Me sent estafada, pues me lo hab an pintado como un libro excelente y para m fue todo lo contrario qu es entretenida s , lo es, pero carece de sentido en gran parte de la historia Y eso que adoro a Laura Kinsale La verdad no se como pudo ser BEST SELLER La rese a completa en el blogrivillarreal 2015 03

    6. I didn t make it further than page 35, but I m pissed enough about another KK bud read going down the drain to give it 1 star for now Might come back to because if there s something I hate it s having paid for books I end up abandoning Also, now is probably a good time to attack my massive Toblerone bar Earlier ramblings Okay, so I am not actually recommending this one to you, I only wanted to bring it to your attention Ahem 1 It has Fabio on the cover we have never read one with fabio on the co [...]

    7. Otro libro del RetoRita que cae Y uno de los que m s pereza me daba coger ya que el solitario Gandy que le dio Cassie en su rese a no auguraba nada bueno Pero bueno, una coge siempre cada libro con ganas de que le guste Pues con las ganas me he quedado porque vaya libro m s insufribleMe gustar a saber qu clase de porro se fum Laura Kinsale cuando escribi este libro Seguramente uno caducado porque es imposible que de la mente de la escritora que cre la para m maravillos sima Flores en la tormenta [...]

    8. Read it years ago but couldn t remember it well Just now listened to audio, narrated by Nicholas Boulton Solid 5 stars for his near perfect impersonations, but only 3 stars for the story itself, mainly because I didn t like the heroine.Laura Kinsale is a superb romance writer, but this story arc was frustrating Frustrating The downers went on far too long Leigh was frequently unlikable She was cruel for about 80% of the book it ruined the romance arc I wanted to slap her She was also TSTL, pulli [...]

    9. RetoRita22Mira que me gustan los libros de Laura Kinsale, pero con el Seigneur no ha podido ser Desde luego, la historia es at pica y no es que no me gustase la situaci n pero, a medida que le a, lo que pensaba que pintaba bien me ha ido aburriendo y el libro se me ha hecho cuesta arriba.La protagonista se me ha hecho, en ocasiones, infumable La parte de Dulce Armon a, Paloma de la Paz y toda la parentela, muy muy cuesta arriba.En realidad, lo que valoro es el trabajo de la autora al escribir es [...]

    10. 4 del Reto Rita Laura Kinsale crea en esta novela un protagonista masculino formidable, de los que impactan y enamoran desde el principio Un h roe imperfecto que me ha encantado y que se sale de lo com n en el genero rom ntico El premio RITA que obtuvo al Mejor Romance de 1991 creo que es indiscutible, igual que la calidad narrativa de esta autora y la riqueza de sus personajes, siempre tan bien construidos y abundantes al menos, en lo que hasta ahora he le do de ella La ambientaci n hist rica e [...]

    11. Retorita2,5 pero sobre todo por l Le doy 3 pues que me encanta esta escritora seguramente se merezca 2 pero no puedo Tengo tal dolor por lo que estoy apunto de hacer No me creo que vaya a valorar con menos de cuatro estrellas un libro de Laura Kinsale Creo que estoy en estado se shock Desde mi opini n, los personajes que ha creado esta mujer al menos los libros que yo me le do de ella me han parecido cre bles, bien elaborados, no s , he conseguido entenderlos en todo momento sus actitudes o acci [...]

    12. I m giving this one such a low rating partially because of the great depth of my disappointment in the novel Kinsale is usually an author I really enjoy, but this book had some Issues It started off promising Leigh is a woman who dresses like a man and goes off to France to find the mythical Prince of Midnight, a highwayman who once terrified the English countryside She finds him and is disappointed he s a recluse living in a crumbling castle, and he s half deaf and suffers from fits of vertigo [...]

    13. Contains SPOILERS I thoroughly enjoyed this book I am not a raving fan of Kinsale but I did enjoy this one It was different in that the majority of the book was written from the hero s point of view This made for a nice change What also made a nice change was that S.T the hero fell in love and recognised his feelings way before Leigh, the heroine I also liked that BOTH S.T and Leigh had flawed characters It wasn t just that S.T was deaf and suffered from vertigo, but that he fell in love at the [...]

    14. 3.75 Will write later On vacation I think this is my fourth Laura Kinsale and I am still loving them I see now that what she does very well is present us with tortured, disabled, defective or damaged heroes and heroines There are no perfect romance novel caricatures here Although they tend to be physically beautiful they have serious baggage or challenges She handles this very well As the story evolves the characters work through their issues or resolve their problems to some degree while moving [...]

    15. 1a rese a Me suelen gustar mucho los libros de Laura Kinsale, pero con esta protagonista no puedoooooor2a rese a vuelto a leer con motivo del RetoRita y mantengo lo puntuaci n, es bastante flojo para ser de la misma autora que esa maravilla que es Flores en la Tormenta

    16. Sigh I ve most definitely fallen in love with Nicholas Boulton s voice He has the most seductive and romantic accent ever I feel like swooning sigh

    17. Algo falla en este libro y no tengo muy claro lo que es Me ha gustado la narraci n, qu digo me ha encantado cada descripci n y cada palabra, ha sido un gusto leerlo en ese aspecto Pero sobran las primeras doscientas p ginas Algunas situaciones planteadas eran verdaderamente absurdas y, en algunos casos, hasta surrealistas No me cre a para nada al personaje del Se or de la Medianoche Ni un poco A medida que avanzaba, suced an cosas sin ninguna l gica y sin que m s adelante tuvieran repercusi n al [...]

    18. I haven t actually read this book, but listening to the recently released audio version narrated I should say perhaps enacted by Nicholas Boulton was a wonderful experience At first, the plot reminded me of a Georgian Cat Ballou an old movie, for you young uns, where Jane Fonda wants washed up gunslinger Lee Marvin to emerge from retirement to avenge her family There s that same feeling of disappointment and chagrin when she finds that her legendary hero is a drunken mess who s utterly incapable [...]

    19. 2,5 estrellas para esta novela que se me ha hecho mucho m s larga de lo que esperaba, con partes muy interesantes y otras que solo me provocaban ganas de saltarme l neas No le pongo menos estrellas porque hay una gran parte de l, el se or de la medianoche, que me ha gustado mucho, sobre todo ese miedo casi infantil o esa chuler a tonta que nos enamora a las lectoras y que le aporta cierto humor a las conversaciones Ella es un tema a parte, que da para una larga conversaci n Tengo que meditar la [...]

    20. What can I say about Laura Kinsale She would be one of my writing heroines and one of my all time favorite authors even if all she d ever written was Flowers from the Storm A masterpiece of historical romance read it if you haven t already Anything else she writes that I love is just icing on the cake The Prince of Midnight was some very delicious icing A summary of this novel s plot sounds so bizarre Lady Leigh Strachan, a beautiful young woman whose happy, bucolic family life was shattered by [...]

    21. Narrated by Nicholas BoultonIt s finally here Romance listeners have eagerly awaited The Prince of Midnight, the first audio release from Laura Kinsale s fascinating backlist Earlier this year, Ms Kinsale announced that her entire backlist twelve titles would be released in audio during 2013 and into 2014 and now we have a taste of Kinsale s skillful writing combined with Nicholas Boulton s talented performance It s sheer audio perfection.Once a famous highwayman, S.T Maitland is now a recluse h [...]

    22. I disliked this book and had to force myself to finish it The hero, S.T Maitland is a likeable guy An aging highwayman with infirmities due to an explosion The heroine, Leigh Strachan, is irritating, rude and aggravating beyond measure The interplay between the two should have been good but she is just bitchy All in all, something to be skipped at all costs Definitely not worth reading.

    23. This is only the fourth Kinsale book I ve read, but one thing I ve realized I ll never have to worry about is encountering a cookie cutter story in one of her novels I never think to myself, while reading one of her books, this is a lovely twist on insert historical romance trope I can t even say that modern historical romance authors seem to have cribbed Kinsale s plotlines and manner of storytelling, because I ve yet to encounter contemporary books in this subgenre that are as wonderfully weir [...]

    24. I m quite convinced that Laura Kinsale is one of the best Romance author s of the past few years Her stories are complex, engaging, original, and heavy on the history She has yet to disapoint me Leigh is on a mission to avenge her family s killing Her foe is a religious minister we would now call him a cult leader who turned the town against her family for one reason or another She seeks the help of S.T Maitland, the famed Prince of Midnighta fabled highwayman What she finds isn t exactly the st [...]

    25. This is my second Kinsale Prince of Midnight had a tough battle to follow Flowers from the Storm for me, as Flowers was totally engrossing and fabulous So how did I find the Prince Well the Prince , S.T was human, real, a broken down fellow, full of human quirks, shilly shallying, ineptitudes, highs and lows You might love him one moment and say really the next, but that is why one can empathise, he is one of us as we all try to get out of the dragging mud pool of life ST and his eyebrows kept r [...]

    26. This was a fun change to the sort of historical romance books I normally read The hero and heroine were both flawed characters, but despite that they were both interesting and, mostly, likable I enjoyed the slow burning romance The plot was quite interesting with an injured former highwayman being lured out of retirement to help the heroine seek vengeance against those who wronged her I ll be happy to try Laura Kinsale books in the future Overall 3.5 stars Audio note The narrator Nicholas Boult [...]

    27. I LOVE Laura Kinsale for her depth of emotion and effortless imagery but this book really fell short for me The best part, by far was the ending , the liasion a cheval quite an erotic fantasy for an equestrienne but the main characters were so irritably inconsistent running hot and cold throughout.I never liked Leigh at all until the epilogue And even ST flip flopped so much that it was hard to know who he really was, other than a masochist for following her.I also didn t care for the religious [...]

    28. It was between a four star and a five star for me but I decided to go with a five star because Laura Kinsale can do no wrong and has yet to disappoint me Plus, while I think I still prefer Flowers from the Storm and Seize the Fire, I did enjoy this a lot than My Sweet Folly which was a four star I ll come back and write a proper review when I ve had time to get my thoughts together I must admit I wasn t too pleased when I saw there was an epilogue as I don t really think it was needed, but afte [...]

    29. I know beggars can t be choosers, but I can t help itThis book has a lot of my 5 star tags but Kinsale just didn t seem to know what to do with them I liked the deaf mountain man hermit thing and the emotionally unstable thing but these were so inconsistent that it wasn t even entertaining The leading man would go from a gimpy puss to Zoro in a split second I would have rathered he stay the gimpy puss, he was likable then.Also, just as a PS, this is one of those travel books where the whole time [...]
