"Our sister is marrying a vampire."
When the ever practical Caroline Cabot first hears those words from the lips of her fanciful youngest sister, she accuses Portia of having a wild imagination.
But when she discovers their sister Vivienne is actually being courted by Adrian Kane, the mysterious viscount rumored to be a vampire, she decides to accept his invitation to a m...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
The sister situation was handled perfectly. It made you not feel as bad fo ...more
Every once in a while a book will hit me just right, sort of like Goldlilocks, and this is it for me. So romantic!
Ms. Medeiros knows how to write dialogue. Adrian, our hero, knew just what to say to make me feel...oh...I mean to make Caroline feel...adored, affirmed, cherished, and loved. No silly bickering in this novel!
For those who love Paranormal Romance (view spoiler)[This feels more like Historical Romance than PNR, especially with ...more
This is a little different from other books I read by Mrs. Medeiros as it is about vampires. In spite of the theme, that is not one of my favorites, it was a pleasant read.
Caroline Cabot is skeptical when her younger sister Portia tells her their sister Viviane is being courted by a vampire. The problem is the more she looks into it, the more difficult it is to deny the mounting evidence against her sister’s suitor.
To make matters just a little more awkward, it seems that Carolin ...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
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
“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."
“I can trust myself to protect your sister because I’m not in love with her!”
It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for historical romances depicting a viciously handsome and titled hero tripping over himself...more
The story was exquisite - unlike some more cliched HRs the plot was plausible and the obstacles in the stories carried real significance.
The characters were even more awesome. The two main characters of this book - Caroline and Adrian - truly lit up the pages (more like positively burned them up - seriously HOT DAMN).
However I have to credit the author for the splendid characterisations of all the secondary players - especially Portia and Julian - they almost stole the show ...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
That is why I read this book a few months ago. Paranormal is not my usual genre but Teresa Medeiros wrote it and it is historical. I thought I would give it a try.
It is a very easy read. Teresa Medeiros' writing is natural and enticing. Following the story is no hardship. Even though I was by nature reluctant to buy into a vampire story, I found myself following the story, despite my initial lack of interest.
The story itself is rather mediocre. It cannot compare ...more
Strongly recommend it. Love this book, and its unexpected end was perfect! ...more
Adrian Kane is also possibly the most delicious name I've come across in a while. Mmmmm. ...more
Wat een leuk en goed geschreven boek ! , tot bijna aan het einde van het verhaal blijf je in spanning of het nu over een of meerdere vampiers gaat of dat het allemaal maar de fantasie van een jonge vrouw is . Ik ga meteen aan deel 2 beginnen .
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

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!”
