Tessa Rose is intoxicating to bodyguard Jonas Berringer. But not simply because she has an intimate knowledge of aphrodisiac scents. Nor is it because she's forbidden fruit: a client, the boss's daughter. Though both things help....But Jonas thinks he has nothing to offer Tessa, not after a moment of lost focus costs Jonas his sight. But when Tessa and Jonas find themselve...more

The hero Jonas is still struggling to come to terms with his recent, albeit temporary, blindness when he is visited by the heroine Tessa. Jonas was injured whilst employed to protect Tessa, but their mutual attraction for one another caused him to be distracted on the job. He blames himself for everything, but is also angry at Tessa as he believes she was using him. Tessa wants to make it up to him but Jonas refuses, and this hurts her as she really thought that they had something together. When...more

When the author asked for reader reviews on her blog in exchange for the Book I didn't hesitate, being a huge fan of the Harlequin Blaze line.

Blaze promises red-hot reads and this book certainly lives up to the Line's promise.

Set during a 24 hour blackout, the story revolves around bodyguard Jonas Berringer and Soap shop owner Tessa Rose.

Tessa is the daughter of one Senator Rose, an influential client of the Berringer's security firm, Jonas runs with his three brothers. When the senator asks Jon...more
Overall rating - 3.5 stars

The ending of this book dragged on for way too long. Once the hero and heroine admit to each other that they love each other, I'm ready to wrap it all up. But this one went on for a couple of more chapters before everything was settled.

Also, I could have done without the subplot involving one of the hero's brothers which detracted from the main storyline for me (when the subplot characters have full-on sex before the main characters do, it just upsets the balance of the...more

MINE UNTIL MORNING is part of the Harlequin Blaze 24 hour: Blackout miniseries and is the latest offering by the fabulous author Samantha Hunter.

With a strong, feisty and fiercely independent heroine, women would relate or aspire to and an alpha yet sensitive and gorgeous hero all would love it has all the masala (spicy ingredients) which would keep readers on the edge of their seats turning the pages.

Tessa Rose, though an US Senator’s daughter, wanted to lead a normal life away from the influe...more
Great premise, poorly executed. Even the start of the book was great - blind man having an erotic wet dream. But the book quickly devolved to below average for me.

A blind bodyguard blames his spoiled client for his blindness and has to protecte her overnight during a blackout. The "spoiled" client is a Senator's daughter who's really just misunderstood - all she wants to do is make soaps and lotions. I had a hard time with the characters - didn't care one whit about them. The whole book could h...more

This was a good read if you like erotic.For me there was too much sex and it took away from the story. Must be 18 or over to read this.
Loved this one too. Am currently reading her entire backlist.
Very enjoyable read--Tessa's dad, a prominent politician, hired Jonas to guard her during some threatening situations. They find they share some pretty serious chemistry, but try to avoid acting on it.

Fast forward to Jonas's hopefully temporary blindness, a returned of the threat to Tessa, and a blackout, and this is definitely a fast-paced, enjoyable day and night for them and us readers.

Can't wait to read more of the Berringer series--Jonas is one of four brothers sharing a protection agency.....more

Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle! If you thought you knew what two people could do for 24 hours during a blackout, think again. Samantha Hunter weaves quite a few twists, not to mention originality, in this very entertaining romance. Two very strong and likable characters, Jonas and Tessa, turn up the heat all night long.

I liked the premise of this book and the structure of each hour is a chapter but unfortunately neither of the characters engaged me. Maybe it was the aromatherapy that turned me off continuing reading. I did get half way through the book but decided to move on.
Mine Until Morning is a hot, sexy, exciting read! Who knew so much fun could be had during a 24-hour blackout! Very enjoyable. I look forward to the other Berringer brothers stories.

I love books that take place in short spans of time. Mine Until Morning didn't disappoint. Chemistry, emotion, heartache... Can't wait to meet the other Berringer brothers.

Samantha Hunter lives in Syracuse, NY, where after working as a university writing instructor for ten years she's began writing full-time at home. Her first book was a Harlequin Blaze, Virtually Perfect (July 2004), which was the very first book she ever wrote and submitted (so don't think it can't happen!). Since, she's written seven more Blaze books, with more on the horizon.
