After Midnight, the first book in the Cabot series, is a tongue-in-cheek mix of vampire story and historical romance. It’s a delightful blend of surprise plot twists, charming characters, sparkling dialogue and humour.
Caroline has always looked after her little sisters. She's a little too old to get married and their family is on the brink of ruin unless one of them makes a good match. Caroline is unerved by rumors that Adrien is a vampire and wants to see what started these crazy accusa...more
Strongly recommend it. Love this book, and its unexpected end was perfect!
For the past eight years, since their parents’ death, they have been living off the meagre generosity of their toad of a cousin Cecil, with a mere...more
And this is one of it.
The first in the Cabot series, I found this book not as entertaining (albeit just a little) as the 2nd one, The Vampire Who Loved Me.
However, just because I want to know what actually happens in the...more
This was my first Teresa Medeiros novel, but it wont be my last. I picked After Midnight out randomly at the library having heard of the author and while waiting for my dozens of orders to come in. I thought the premise sounded interesting and hoped for a good read, despite the fact I knew nothing at all about the novel. I wasn't disappointed.
Caroline Cabot is the eldest of three sisters. She had to assume the parental role for her sisters when both their parents were kille...more

To my great surprise I really enjoyed After Midnight. I had expected it to be fun but wasn’t expecting it to be as gripping and entertaining as it was. I really liked it a lot more than I thought I would. It was so much fun it made me giggle and smile from beginning to end.
Before starting I was unsure about the storyline, I didn’t quite like the idea of a romance between a woman and a man her sister was practically engaged to, but it was mostly handled very...more
Caroline Cabot reminds me a lot of Eleanor in Sense & Sensibility - very practical and more mother than sister to the two younger - the beautiful bride-to-be Vivienne (Marianne) and the flighty, fanciful Portia (Margaret). She decides to see for herself if her sister's merely marrying well or if her immort...more

Her ability with words and descriptions are breathtaking. I truly fell in love with every main character in this book. It was easy to relate to each one in some fashion or form. I love a good historical romance and to combine that with a twist of paranormal and throw vampires into the mix just ma...more
After Midnight by Teresa Medeiros is a vampire love story set in the Regency period. It's definitely not a take-off from Twilight! The mysterious Adrian Kane is rumored to be much more than your average viscount. His courtship of the beautiful Vivienne Cabot has her sister, Portia along with the local constable in a frenzy of worry.
Vivienne's sister Caroline dismisses the stories but soon learns that there is lot more than meets the eye with the Kane brothers. Her attraction to Adria...more
You know those books that are totally fun in a distracting and entirely fluffy way? This is one of those books. This isn't a bad thing. In fact, I enjoy being both distracted and filled with fluff upon occasion. I *like* delving into a historical romance and finding whispers of vampires in it. I like sorting through the clues to see if there's any truth in the spiteful whispers of the upper crust ladies and gentlemen of the Ton. Basically, this book was a great dist...more
This is one Historical romance with ...well a bit more. Teresa Medeiros has a certain charm, witt and well she has such talent that when you read one of her books it just draws you in a you dont ever want to leave.

I really really liked this novel! It is what Jane Austen and Mary Shelly would have written if they co-authored a novel. It is witty and sexy and FU...more
Well there was nothing really new in vampire lore. It was the same basic stuff, no sunlight, no reflection in mirrors. The only interesting twist was being able to turn back if you could reclaim your sole from the vampire who took it and turned you.
Adrian was pretty enticing and the author did a good job through the first half of the book of keeping me guessing of i...more

I am a huge historical romance fan but have never read any paranormal ones and didn't actually know I was until a ways into the book. I have read two Teresa Medeiros books - One Night of Scandal and Yours Until Dawn - and they were both just regular historicals, so I didn't realize she wrote anything else. The book was a great historical romance and for anyone who is put off by the paranormal/vampire aspect, don't be...more

The music swelled to a crescendo. Although Adrian kept her imprisoned against the muscular length of his body, he gave up all pretense of dancing. “Because I don’t lose my wits every time Vivienne walks into a room. I don’t toss and turn in my bed every night dreaming of making love to her. She doesn’t drive me to distraction with her endless questions, her incessant snooping, her harebrained schemes.” His voice rose. “I can trust myself to protect your sister because I’m not in love with her!”
