SECRETS OF MIDNIGHT - If Lord Donovan Trent had his way, he would spend his days carelessly wooing the women of London society. Instead, he found himself banished to the English countryside of Cornwall, forced by the decrees of his father's will to run his family's tin mines and find a country bride. The last thing the handsome lord needed was a local lass sticking her nose into his affairs, but that seemed to be exactly what the parson's daughter Corisande Easton had in mind.

Meet the Author

Miriam Minger's first novel Twin Passions was called "A fabulous debut!" by Romantic Times. Since then, Miriam has swept readers into her unforgettable historical romances with her strong, forceful heroes and fiery heroines. She is the winner of several Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Awards--including Best Medieval Historical Romance of the Year for The Pagan's Prize--and a two-time RITA Award Finalist for A Hint of Rapture and Captive Rose.

Miriam Minger's contemporary novel Ripped Apart, "An absolute gem of a romantic suspense. Five Stars!" has won rave reviews from romance and thriller readers alike. Miriam is also happy to announce that her Little Mike and Maddie series of children's picture books about a lovable pair of dogs and their motorcycle adventures is available under her pen name, Miriam Aronson.

Bestselling author Miriam Minger says: It's been a wonderful experience to have all my novels published as eBooks, but the greatest thrill for me as a writer is when readers take the time to let me know they enjoyed one of my stories...

"I have read hundreds if not thousands of books in my lifetime and not once have I ever been moved to comment on one until now. This is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. I laughed. I cried. I remained at the edge of my seat devouring every single word you wove with this incredible story. I just wanted to let you know how deeply this story moved me and to thank you for creating it."

Wow. This one left me speechless...and grateful. I had done my job, which is to make you feel like you've dropped feet first into a world that captures your imagination and emotions so vividly you might be living and breathing the story. And that's one of the purest joys of reading, isn't it? I know it is for me...and it is my hope to continue to write books that make you feel the passion, live and breathe the adventure, laugh and cry and touch your heart.

    While I have never left a review on a book, I decided to on this

    While I have never left a review on a book, I decided to on this one. 
    I couldn't get past some of the run on sentences. Not all historical romances are perfectly edited. 
    I myself am not a writer, I am a reader. If I have to reread every other paragraph, then there isn't a nice flow. 
    Example from book: Lindsey gave a loud hoot of laughter, but her grin became a grimace as she shuddered,
     remembering how the groom had lasciviously pressed his girth to Druella's slight frame after Corisande's father, 
    the Reverend Joseph Easton,
    had pronounced them man and wife at the small church wedding yesterday morning.
    4 commas and 48 words in one sentence.

    Decent Read...Heroine a Bit Too Rude At Times

    A decent story. Sometimes hard to stay involved. Great storyline idea however the heroine was a bit too rude and obnoxious to the hero most of the time. Not sure how they managed to fall in love. How she treated everyone else made me wonder at times if she suffered from split personalities.

    Good story, annoying heroine

    The story line is nice and the novel has a fast pace. Donovan is a likable character, pretty strong. Corie is annoying from start to finish, a real shrew who always shrieks and assumes the worst. I can't understand how Donovan could fall for such a complainer. I guess someone has to love the shrew, but God I don't think a strong man would stand up for all the blaming and wrong assumptions and running like a crazy woman from her own feelings, making more stupid assumptions without once asking herself or Donovan about where the marriage was going. All the heroine knew how to do was live in denial....deeply insecure about herself, trying to prove she's worthy by helping everyone to the detriment of her own safety. I'll remember this book because of the very annoying heroine, but I couldn't read it again.

    Once again another great story from Miriam Minger,that kept me



    Once again another great story from Miriam Minger,that kept me reading into the early hours. Set in Cornwall, we meet Corisande the oldest of the vicar's three daughters. A wonderfull young women she is, at 12yrs old when her mother died she stepped into the role of helping her father in the Parish. Corie would do anything to help those less fortunate than herself,she is so caring and woe betide anyone she finds mistreating others, for she has one heck of a fiery temper.

    Lord Donovan arrives to take charge of the House and Mine he is to inherit, but only if he takes a country bride as his father has sipulated in his will. Loathe to marry but having no choice as Donovan needs the money to find his missing daughter, he is desperate as time is of the essence. He meets Corie, she is on a mission,championing the miners cause and demands fair wages. Donovan see's this as an opportunity to turn this to his advantage, so he tells her he will increase the miners wages if she becomes his bride for a temporary period and the bargain is struck. However neither are quite prepared for the feelings that develop between them, and oh how they fight against it. The passion building between the two characters was wonderfull.
    Add to this a little smuggling, kidnapping, death threats and your on the road to a great adventure, and it was a thrilling ride.
    I loved it, and would highly recommend.

    A completely unredeemable heroine.   She has NO redeemable qualities.  If I can't like the heroine, what's the point of reading the book? NOT RECOMMENDED.

    Not the best

    Truthfully, i did not enjoy this book. Corie was too unnecessarily shrewish. It seemed wordy. At by the end of the book they were in love. I was like where did that come from? I've read most of Miriam Minger's books that were great like Twin Passions. This book kept you from beginning to end.

    Good all around

    The writing is good, the characters are interesting and well-developed, and the plot (while a little far-fetched and all over the place) is very intriguing.
    I'd recommend this book if you like strong characters, more romance than sex (barely any), a spot of humor and a little mystery (not the intense who-done-it sort but the one that leaves you hhmmm-but-wait questions).
