It was supposed to be one last "simple" job before retirement. All that burned-out, ex-secret agent Grant Sullivan had to do was extract flighty socialite Priscilla Jane Hamilton Greer from Manuel Turego's Costa Rican "plantation" and return her to her family in the United States. But simple quickly becomes complicated when Grant discovers Jane is not an empty-headed nitwit but instead is an opinionated woman with an escape plan of her own. Working together seems the best way to ensure a successful getaway from Turego and his thugs, but Grant didn't expect his new partner to be quite so distracting. Originally published in 1986, this tale contains all the ingredients of a classic Howard romance, including an actionpacked, Romancing the Stone-style plot, sizzling sensuality, a deliciously dark and dangerous hero, a wonderfully resourceful heroine, and plenty of humor. A magnet for readers familiar only with Howard's more recent work, readers who want to revisit this superb novel, and readers new to Howard, or even to the romance genre itself.
Library Journal

This is a terrific romantic read, very Linda Howard, but to re-release it in hardcover at $20.00 is ridiculous. It is actually the first of a four book series written in the '80's. At one time, they were bound together in two paperback volumes. I've managed to put together a complete set spending about a buck each in used book stores. Blame the publisher, not the author, for this stunt.

A very entertaining romance. There are elements of adventure, humor, drama, excitement ... well, you get the idea. I HIGHLY recommend this book for a rollercoaster ride of fun and searing romance. It is a book you will want to read in one sitting! Midnight Rainbow was the first Linda Howard book I had ever read and reread (it is now in aging tatters). I bought it at a rummage sale for $.25 and was hooked me on Linda Howard from then on.

I thought this book was good. It was a little slow at the beginning but it really picked up about 2/4's of the book.

From everyone else's review, I was expecting this book to be great - I guess I expected too much. It was a quick read and kind of entertaining. I've read worse, but I've read better.

Linda Howard wrote three of my favorite romances. This one plus Diamond Bay and Sarah's Child are really great entertainment!!! I am so glad they are now e-books because my paperback editions are falling apart. Great light reads.

Oh my gosh I loved this book. It is a classic Harlequin type book. The Hero Grant Sullivan is a tough former military man that doesn't believe he can feel anything or care about anything. He has serious trust issues. The heroine is Jane Hamilton Greer who is a misplaced socialite who never stays in one place too long and is forever finding herself in trouble. She is a little flighty but very tough and strong. She know self defense and isn't afraid to use it. What brings them together is a request from Jane's father for Grant to find his daughter and bring her home. It is full of misunderstandings that brings them to a great love as they overcome them. I couldn't put it down and I think you will love it too.

This was my very fist read in a romance book. I loved it. The author wrote a that had you as a reader sitting on the edge of your seat to read. I highly recommend. I lost my copy and as I was going through the books I saw this and I almost fell over because I was so excited. I have read this book numerous times.

This is one heck of a romance novel! Howard is very skillful at creating believable scenes filled with smart and sassy characters. The sexual between Jane and Grant sets these pages on fire! If you loved this book, I would also recommend: Shades of Twilight, After the Night and Open Season also by Linda Howard. You may also enjoy the books of Lavyrle Spencer and Tami Hoag.

At first Grant Sullivan thinks he's been sent to rescue a prissy little rich girl, but he's in for a surprise. Not only is Jane Greer his match, but everyday he stays with her, the harder he falls for her. WARNING: This book has a VERY happy ending!

I travel by air a great deal and anything that gets me thru the trip is high on my list. So are Linda Howard's books. I read one going and one coming home. They are great fun and I am always amazed that I buy into her stories. This one was great fun because several of the men in my huge family are in the military. Grant is a hunk and Jane is a gutzy little lady. Linda Howard does this with most of her characters and I have read most of her books. Read this first, Diamond Bay 2nd and White Lies 3rd. Kill and Tell was wonderful since I was on my way to New Orleans and her descriptions are so good and not too long. Summer reading, anytime reading, amusing and adventureous. Look forward to finding ones I haven't read. There aren't many.

This was a good book, and it kept my attention all the way through . .It wasn't gripping so I could put it down, but I did find myself wondering what would happen next. The characters were interesting and easy to relate to. . .
