Not one of Enoch’s best. The story drags in some parts and the back blurb is very misleading. The reader is led to believe that a battle of wits and some good banter is going to happen between the h/h but it’s very tame compared to Enoch’s other novels which was disappointing because she can write a funny tit-for-tat-right-back-at-ya story like the best of them.

Vixen (Victoria) and Sin (Sinclair) get together for the first time because of a dare but then they’re caught in a compromising situatio
I have come to the conclusion that Suzanne Enoch's With This Ring series is just......not my cup of tea.

I read Lucien and Alexandra's story, which was Reforming the Rake, the first book of the series. I did not like it. But I like Suzanne Enoch and her later books are much better so I have given both books 3 stars. Meet Me at Midnight, is in fact an improvement from the first book. The hero Sinclair, is a lot easier to tolerate than Lucien. I even liked him, occasionally.

As for my difficultie

Another good one in this series. Ms. Enoch is good at writing rakes. They are real rakes. Except this one isn't, he's pretending to be a rake. It's his guise as a spy and in his determination to find his brother's killer. But he's really good at being the rake he isn't.

Victoria, Vixen, is a spirited lass. The two get caught in a very compromising situation. I don't usually like stories where the couple marry this way but it works for this story especially because each are unusually attracted to
Amongst the rake series, this happens to be about the hero pretending to be a rake so that he can spy on the French and now he's trying to figure out who killed his brother. Its essentially a mystery with romance as a central theme or something. There is a bit of funny dialogue, though not the expected banter. This couple fell for each other pretty hard early on and there were no significant misunderstanding between them. The murder mystery is a new concept for me. I usually avoid them, but it w ...more

Lady Victoria "Vixen" Fontaine is known to be a bit wild in her ways and this will be her down fall...or so she thought. When she first sets eyes on Sinclair "Sin" Grafton, Marquis of Althorpe she wanted to kiss him and that is exactly what she did but that also led to the one thing she never wanted and that was marraige. Now she's forced to marry this handsome man she barley knows and oddly shes okay with that.
Sinclair Grafton just inherited a title (which he didn't want) because his brother w
Wow, I did not expect this.

I was avoiding this book and reading everything except it. I just thought it will be boring or badly written.

Well, I was wrong. From their first moment, Victoria and Sinclair were great characters. I enjoyed their fights, thoughts, passion... They weren't boring or annoying to me at all.

Victoria was brave, wild, smart, passionate, cared about others..She was a perfect girl. Sinclair was sexy, smart, strong, loyal. I liked how he pretended to be a rake and she saw more
Perhaps I'm being unfair due to suspense-spy-thriller romances being one of my favorite genres, but it felt like Enoch's habitually flimsy plots finally outweighed any appeal the romance might have held.

A young woman is able to unravel in a matter of days a closely held secret that he kept for years against trained professionals?

Having figured it out, she then proceeds to blab it to anyone she can, such as her boarding school mistress friend or by stating it baldly in unsecured locations, or o
I had low expectations going into Suzanne Enoch's "Meet Me at Midnight" due to my general dislike of the hero from the first book of the "With This Ring" series. Thankfully, I found myself enjoying this one immensely more despite the mixed reviews on Goodreads and stayed up late so I could finish reading it in one sitting.

Being a big fan of historical romances, I wasn't to nit-picky about how blatantly obvious the mystery/thriller/suspense aspect of this book was. I liked how the author graduall
I love Vixen and Sin together. Firstly, I loved their nicknames. You have to admit, Vixen seems so fitting to Sin and vice versa. I loved their pairing. I mean, Vixen was not one of those 18 year old "Victoria" debutante bringing somebody called Sin to his knees. I loved reading those innocent-rake pairings. But this was so much better than I could have hoped for. :D
Loved the plot and the suspense and the ending. I was smiling the whole time i was reading it.

I've read this novel half a dozen times and each time I discover something new. It's a great story and Enoch's writing makes me giddy with excitement each time I read her novels. I absolutely love Sin and Victoria- they're vibrant and entertaining. I can't wait to read it again next year!
LOVED this series, MUST READ, this is a sucky review on my part, cant remember half i wanted to say as i am 4 books further, but i really loved this series, and its funy!

I više nego odlična! Napeta do zadnje stranice!

No recordaba haber leído esta novela, y no fue hasta que me topé con una escena ya muy avanzado el libro, que dije: ¡esto ya lo leí antes! Sin embargo, en ese momento no pensé que había leído este libro, más bien creí que había leído una escena como esa en otra parte... después de eso ya me fui dando cuenta de que en realidad sí era esta novela la que leí en algún momento. Estuvo bien como relectura la verdad.

Me gustó la relación entre la pareja, Victoria era una mujer muy divertida e inteligent
Or three and a half, to be perfectly honest.

I guess the first one out of this trilogy was so amazing, that everything else just pales in comparison. I liked Vixen as a character, but because I liked her fire and unortodox behavior so much, I think she gave in too soon. The whole story and falling in love process seemed too rushed at times, and that is why I wasn't so in love with this story, as I was with the first one ...
A spy, a naughty girl, and her father walk in to a party... no seriously, I loved this book. I wanted the next books to be about his two co-conspirators, but alas, they were not.

Loved the twist of mystery and how helpful Vixen actually got to be. Fun read. :)
Good mystery

I HATED Biden at the beginning of the book. Flighty, flirty, irritating. Once the mystery got more involved it was very entertaining.

Series rating: 3
Each book centered on a woman who was connected to the others. The books were generally enjoyable with decent premises, but they didn't really rise above that.
Victoria Fontaine makes a scene at Lady Franton's ball. Later, Sinclair Grafton, a notorious rake, enters and asks her to dance. They waltz and later are seen kissing in the garden. She is compromised, and he offers her marriage to protect her name. Sin is actually an agent for the Crown and is only pretending to be a rake. He wants to find out who killed his brother Thomas. There are lots of twists and turns in this novel, ending with a mad rush by Sinclair to save his family from Kingsfield. T ...more
I really appreciate the way this story mixed in a mystery with romance. I never knew what was gonna happen next, which kept me in anticipation throughout the entire story.
Mocinha tresloucada e mocinho arrojado que luta par vingar a morte do irmão. Para ler numa tarde tranquila.

Romance, suspense and everything that keeps the heart racing

Surprised myself - enjoyed this fluffy romance.
Fun story of Vixen Fontaine, the belle of London known for her hoydenish ways and flirting. She ends up in a scandalous clinch with the Marquis of Althorpe, a known rake, newly returned to town from abroad. Of course they must marry, but little does she know he's been a spy for the past five years fighting Bonaparte and is now home to find out who murdered his brother. Good story and I loved Vixen, who has smarts, looks, personality and gumption. 4/5
Not really fantastic
The heroine was indeed smart and cunning, but so immature in her behaviors all the time!
The hero was much nicer, except I could not really understand how he managed to get bewitched that much by his new-found wife, considering his past.
The whole story lies upon an investigation and without it there's just nothing.
2.5 stars max

I really liked the story, although it main focus was on Thomas's murderer instead of Sinclair and Vixen love story, I didn't care about that much because I was really into the mistery, so for me was an okay book. Not the best but it wasn't bad. It was just fun.
I loved it lol

This wasn't as strong as the first. I did like the mystery that they h/h had to solve and I thought the heroines saving the animals was a unique touch. But I did feel like they just fell right into this marriage without a lot there. But I did like it a lot.
Murder, deception and a motley critter crew make for some interesting adventures with Vixen and Lord Sin. I kept waiting for someone to overhear the parrot but he never presented himself to visitors. He just tortured Sin. Vixen is constantly underestimated my Sin!
For me this book was a very slow read. Didn't find it all that interesting and made it halfway till I started to skim the rest. I am not a big fan of "spies" in my novels. Which could attest for why I found it uninteresting. Other reviewers seemed to enjoy it.
