This was an interesting read with lovely characters from disparate backgrounds finding love and acceptance. The supporting characters such as Kip, Pierre and Jane were funny and interesting, but the villain left me scratching my head. Yes, he was a villain, but he thought he was doing right – well – right by villain standards anyway. I think that, in the end, I had more questions than answers – but I

Her Midnight Sin by Sofie Darling is book Three in the A Shadows and Silk Series. This is the story of Callie, the Dowager Viscountess St. Alban and Captain John Nylander. I haven't yet read the previous books, so for me this is a standalone book.

“Her Midnight Sin” by Sophie Darling is the third book in the ‘A Shadows and Silk novel’ series and centers around Lady Calpurnia (Callie) Radclyffe, the atypical Dowager Viscountess St. Alban, who is fighting to retain control of the estate that she has worked so hard to revive. Nylander, a sea captain who has overcome his harsh past but has not quite realized his dreams, as nebulous as they might be, becomes her unwitting nemesis. He is fascinated by Callie, but each of them faces di

Like a vengeful Norse god, Captain John Nylander has come from the sea to steal the only home that Callie has ever known. And that might not be all he’s after.

Orphaned as a child, Nylander has never known a real home. Now he is ready to leave the dangers of his past behind and put down the roots he has always longed for. The only thing standing in his way is a lanky aristocratic lady who is more at home in breeches and on the farm than in the ballroom.

Never considered a beauty Callie, the Dowage

Ever since he strode across the deck of a ship in the first Shadows and Silk book, I’ve been hankering for Nylander’s story. And Sofie Darling doesn’t disappoint!

Nylander’s counterpart Callie, who commits that delicious midnight sin—of course with the godlike, golden-haired captain—is a worthy opponent in the struggle over Wyldcombe Grange.

This book is a satisfying read on so many levels. Pirates! Intrigue! Irresistible attraction! As the secrets Callie and Nylander hold are revealed, their sim

Pirates and swords and romance, oh my! There are secrets abound in Her Midnight Sin. I really like both Callie and Nylander’s personality.

John Nylander, captain of the Fortuyn is back in London and set on attending a dinner at the home of his foster brother and friend Jakob Radclyffe, the Viscount St. Alban. He has a lot on his mind, including the fact that his ship was trailed by the infamous pirate ship the Free Reaver - he wishes he didn't have to go to the dinner as he is not feeling well, but would never miss a chance to see Jake.

Calpurnia "Callie" Radclyffe has been summoned to London by Jake, she can't imagine what he wants

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 4/21/19.

My first read from Ms. Darling, but definitely not my last!

It's apparently my weekend to read about unconventional heroines--I absolutely adored Callie. Though she grew up in a family that never went without and supposedly married "well" her history did everything it could to mess the poor woman up. She had every right to be proud of what she'd accomplished out at Wyldcombe Grange (and she was!) pretty much everything that had come before--especial

Her Midnight Sin is a Regency romance. Callie is a widow, who currently runs Wyldcombe Grange in Devon. It’s part of Viscount St. Alban’s estate, and one he wishes to sell off. But it’s Callie’s home and she’s poured her heart into making it turn a profit; she can’t stand the thought of losing it all. In her haste to raise the funds to buy the property herself, Callie strikes a deal with a notorious pirate.

John Nylander is a law-abiding captain of The Fortuyn. An orphan, he was raised by Viscoun

London, 1825 "If you're goin' to have a wife, you might as well tup her right." Wisdom courtesy of a father long lost to John Nylander but the essence of the sentiment had somehow stuck with him (paraphrased). Captain of his ship, the Fotuyn, he had worked his way up the line and even though he may no longer love his work, he did it well and put in his all.
His life was about to change, although he had no idea, and it would involve one Lady Calpurnia (love that name!) Radclyffe.

I received a free ARC of this novel via Hidden Gems in exchange for a honest review. My opinion is my own.

This is the third book in a series but it stood really well on its own. The storyline kept me interested the whole way through. The main characters were sweet and I really liked how they found each other. I enjoyed this story so much i think I'm going to go back and read the previous books.

Her Midnight Sin (Shadows and Silk, book 3) by Solfie Darling is the third book in this series. Set in the early 1820s in London and Somerset we meet two distinct characters from dissimilar backgrounds. The female lead, Callie is a young widow, the Dowager Viscountess of St. Alban knows a lot about disappointment. She is a strong character and does not fit the stereotype of a docile Regency woman. It is her dream to own manor, Wyldecombe Granger. She has managed it for the last five years and mo ...more

I need a Captain Nylander in my life. Callie was such a wonderful heroine. Her strength and forthrightness was illuminating. So happy they found each other. First time reading a Sofie Darling book. She did not disappoint.

Her Midnight Sin

Not a bad read, I enjoyed the characters, although Callie drove me a little nuts at times. The suspense part of the story wasn't hard to work out, so there was no real intrigue for me.
This is a first Sofie Darling read for me and I'll try another story.

Beautiful love story

I really loved this book as it had sort of a mystery to it, after being married to a US Navy sailor I know that love of the sea they had. The end came out good.

The Captain!

Having run the Estate since her husband had died and made a profit and then to be summoned to London to be told it was to be offered to his friend was adding insult to injury. She wanted the Estate herself but how!

This had a lot of action as Callie tried to find money to buy a manor. Meanwhile there are twists and turns till she finally gets what she really desires

Her Midnight Sin was not what I expected. It's the story of Callie, the widow of the previous Viscount
St Alban, who has been running Wyldcombe Grange since the passing of her husband, and John Nylander, a sea captain. Callie is strong willed and dedicated to improving the grange, so dedicated she would put aside her own morals in order to maintain her ownership of it.

I found this book really hard to rate. There isn't really anything glaringly wrong with it, no typos or annoying grammatical pro
