Re-Release: (Midnight Caller, Haley Whitehall, Liquid Silver Books. This is a re-edited and lengthened version.)

Life without love is painful, but in the Reconstruction Era South forbidden fruit can be deadly. A fiery romance between a widow and an African-American man has more consequences than either of them imagined.

Slavery has ended, but racial prejudice remains in Kentucky. Emma Bennett guards a secret that could destroy her life. Until now she never considered the price of her security. Becoming a well-respected member in Louisville had seemed a dream come true, but at what cost?

Her husband’s death from a carriage accident releases Emma from her loveless, controlling marriage. Now she has a chance to find happiness and raise a family. But before she begins courting again she wants to experience her freedom. At the advice of the leading socialite in town, she takes a black lover to fulfill her sexual needs. His raw masculine power awakens feelings she didn’t know existed. After the first touch, she craves more.

Frederick works as a roustabout by day and moonlights as a prostitute. He knows better than to fall in love with his white client, but Emma enchants him the first time he calls on her. To keep them both safe, he works hard to put up barriers. Unfortunately, he can’t protect Emma from the slimy Mr. Hawthorne, who wants her as his bride. Frederick vows to keep her safe even if his forbidden love costs him his life.

Meet the Author

Haley was telling stories before she could write. When she was four, she woke her parents up to write down her burning ideas. Growing up on John Wayne movies and the Little House on the Prairie books, she has always loved historical fiction. For ten years Haley developed her writing craft and voice by studying authors such as Avi, Ann Rinaldi, and Mark Twain to name a few. She received her B.A in history through Central Washington University. During all her research, her soul was pulled deeper in the 19th century U.S. Using her words to transport people back in time continues to give her a thrill. Sometimes she wishes she could escape the present and float down the Mississippi River on a raft. But then again, just writing another historical fiction novel is a much safer journey.

A historical type romance Midnight Caller is set in the late 1800s and follows the love affair between a young white widow, Emma Bennett, and her black escort, Frederick. During this time, racism is very much prevalent, but Emma takes a chance as she needs some sexual relief after being in a loveless and controlling marriage. What starts out as Frederick just doing what he is paid to do, turns into much more. Secrets are revealed and lives are in danger. It does not help that Emma is wanted by another suitor, so when this suitor finds out a black man has been sleeping with her, things take a turn for the worst. Would they survive as an interracial couple in the South? Who is hiding a secret? You have to one-click this erotic novella to find out. It is a story outside of my normal reading genre but I wanted to give it a try since it is a historical type romance. I am happy I did. The author does an outstanding job of developing the characters and their innermost feelings for one another. Ms. Whitehall helps us to understand the intricacies of an interracial courtship in the south during an earlier era. This book shows when love is involved, two people will go to great lengths to be together, even if it means someone might be killed. Even in today’s day and time, people still frown upon interracial relationships, so when entered into, you have to make sure your love can withstand the negativities that society will dish out. Great storyline and I look forward to reading more from Haley Whitehall. -Reviewed by Lisa
