Overview

After Midnight by Teresa Medeiros

"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 midnight supper and do some sleuthing of her own. To both her delight and her dismay, she soon finds herself falling under Kane's bewitching spell.

After all, what's a proper young lady to do when her sister's suitor arouses more than just her suspicions?

After Midnight is the first of Medeiros's two books about the three Cabot sisters: Caroline, Vivienne, and Portia. Caroline, who believes herself "on the shelf", has taken care of her two younger sisters since her parents died literally on the eve of her debut in society. Now Vivienne is "out", in the care of an aunt who lives in London, and her sisters have received news that she is being courted by the dark and mysterious Adrian Kane, who may or may not be a vampire. Caroline, after an amazingly awkward introduction of sorts, finds herself strongly drawn to Kane herself. How can she steal her sister's potential future, though? And *is* he a vampire? Do they even exist? Her sister Portia is sure they do, and that he is...but then again, she also believes in mermaids, and fairies, and werewolves.... I really enjoyed this book. It had several unexpected twists, and many fun characters. There was only one part when Caroline bordered into "too stupid too live" territory, but it was short-lived and she snapped out of it quickly, thank goodness. I am looking forward to reading the second in the series, The Vampire Who Loved Me, soon.

My Synopsis: 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 Adrian leads her to do some snooping of her own, but does little to alleviate her anxiety over falling for her sisters suitor. The Kane brothers, Adrian and Julian are very dark hero's, with lots of secrets and intrigue. Adrian gives off the air of gentleman, but ones who's not afraid to break the rules to get what he wants, while Julian is the playboy. The man who parties all night and sleeps away the day. Both brothers are handsome yet foreboding characters. The Cabot sisters, are demure ladies, who must fend for themselves. Caroline, the strong-willed, caretaker. Portia, the petulant younger sister and Vivienne, the beautiful, soft spoken damsel, who may be in more distress than she knows. My Thoughts: What can I say about this book. I really loved it. I'm all for a good romance, especially set in the Regency period. The women were fairly typical characters, though I thought Caroline was a fiery character with a lot of spirit. But, it's the men in this story that will really catch the interest of the reader. The entire first part of the book keeps you guessing about what's going on. Are the rumors true? Is there a deep dark secret in the Kane family or do the boys just like to perpetuate the stories, to make them seem more mysterious? And what about those paintings in the mysterious hallway? Soooo many questions. The writer doesn't keep you waiting forever though, little bits of information start to trickle out and it culminates at the midnight supper. LOL... How appropriate! This was my first experience with Teresa Medeiros and I have to say I was impressed. After Midnight was one of my top ten reads of 2009. You really should read this one!

Well written story. I love all the main characters. It was hard to put down and when I finished I went straight to book two, The Vampire Who Loved Me. You need to buy this book. Teresa Medeiros knows how the pen should flow. Trust me.

This was a wonderful romance with a vampire twist. I fell in love with the characters and read it in 2 nights. I am a little tired, but can't wait to read book 2 The Vampire who Loved Me. Teresa is one of my favorite authors.

I really enjoyed this book. After Midnight contains the best elements of a Regency romance mixed with a hint of Gothic flavor. The characters are likeable and the story swiftly paced.
