The Most Tense & Emotive Book So Far!! I'm at a loss for words, I'm in storyline & cliff hanger shock I think!! I'm trying to figure out how to review this without giving out spoilers ... But the entire thing is one giant spoiler fuelled, pulse pounding & heart torn to shreds book!! My mind is blown to smithereens It's an outstanding read. So much gets explained *rubs hands together in glee* and I think most, if not all, of the Raphael/Dieter questions are answered A-Maz-Ing by the way Flicka is an absolute rock throughout this book for Alina & Raphael. Her astonishing memory comes into play in wonderfully helpful ways. Her Princess 'training' holds her together through some awful times as well as some beautiful times, unfortunately they are very few!! The final chapters were nail biting, terrifying & heart breaking!! I don't think Blair Babylon has broken my heart quite so badly before - and then it just ENDS!!! Argh .. She's an evil, evil Author This writer continues to impress & confound me with the complexity of her storylines!! I love how we're all left trying to figure out what could possibly happen next! I'm so invested in the characters, even the ones that she hasn't written story's for yet, it's crazy I can't wait to get my paws on 'Happily Ever After', the final book in this series. I need to know how it all wraps up, who survives etc Some certainly don't deserve to!! I hope she takes her time and enjoys writing book 5, This has been such a fast turn over of REALLY top quality & lengthy reads, She deserves to finish on a high as much as we readers do!!✨ I can not recommend 'At Midnight' and the entire Runaway Princess Series enough. This was such a simple 5 Star rating to award for me!! Debbie, 1970, UK

Omgoddess this novel is the best ,love,action, suspense, all wrapped up in what life would be like without any money. The characters are true to what's it like to struggle when one finds themselves broke,thankyou for writing about that it can be a struggle .Also, I like to say after I read the first three of these novels in thi series that I'm very very happy to be middle class and not uber rich like your charaters,I shutter at the thought now.keep up your writing your a execellent story weaver.

Cliffhanger alert! I am an avid reader of Blair Babylon’s books. I love her writing so much, I'm a part of her ARC team. Truly, she is one of my favorites. But no one is perfect. I never thought I'd give one of her books less than 5 stars, but I don't feel I have much choice. This book is almost as good as any other of hers that I have read. She is a skilled storyteller who writes engaging stories about real characters. This time, however, I found myself being drawn out of the story to analyze words or phrasings on more than one occasion. I cannot say why this happened, but it's unusual for one of Blair Babylon’s stories so I think it's noteworthy. Still, it was a small issue that I was willing to forgive…. Until I reached the end. I suppose I can understand why a writer might be tempted to write a cliffhanger. What I cannot comprehend is why a reader would want to read one. Personally, I have been known to give up on authors who employ this tactic. I don't think it's cute or fun or justified in any way. I think cliffhangers are just mean, plain and simple. Especially the kind that end with a countdown and the hero in mortal danger. Not cool, Blair. Not cool.

I can’t stand it! I’m not sure my heart can take it! This book stopped my heart at least three times , made it swell with raw emotion every other page and broke it twice! I LOVED IT! Please please bring us the final episode soon, Ms Babylon. I’m praying for a HEA for them all....and anyone who hasn’t started this series yet——- what are you waiting for? Catch up cuz you are missing out on some spectacular writing! I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.

Flicka and Raphael aka Dieter are on yet another world wind of travel at the hands of his family this time. Raphael will do whatever it takes to save Flicka and his daughter but can he save them from something he barely escaped himself when he was just a teenager? All I can say is hang on tight for the next book because we do get a cliffhanger with this one. We get so much passion though from this couple, opening up, truth and more lies also. Fantastic story.

Unbelievable! Absolutely unbelievable! Every word of this book drew me in and by the end... the end where I am left hanging from a cliff YET AGAIN by my bloodied fingertips, praying I can survive each day until the next release... I am left speechless and with a heart that stopped beating a hundred or so pages before. This book is truly suspenseful writing at its finest. Blair Babylon, you are my favorite author. I just wish you weren't such an incorrigible tease with your cliffhanger endings.

This is the fourth book of a five-book series. Flicka and Dieter/Raphael encounter dozens of bodyguards and men with military uniforms when they leave the courthouse after Flicka’s divorce decree from Pierre. Dieter makes a “deal with the Devil” a/k/a his father, Valerian Mirabaud, to keep her from being dragged back to Monaco. He has always said he would do whatever it took to keep her safe, and now he must prove it. The book follows them as they are taken to Geneva, kept as “prisoners” in a mansion, and Raphael is forced to go back to the life that he worked so hard to leave behind. There are heart-warming parts too. Flicka and Alina spend so much time together that they can bond. The fact that they look so similar has many people believing that they are mother and daughter. Seeing all three of them start to become a family is moving. As the story unfolds, the plot takes many twists and turns. Both Flicka and Dieter/Raphael show themselves to be very resourceful. Blair is a master at keeping you guessing as to who is really a villain, who has ulterior motives, and who might ultimately surprise you. This book does end with quite the cliff hanger. It makes you want to jump right into the next book, which comes out in September. I can’t wait! I received a complimentary copy of the book, but also purchased a copy to support my favorite author!

A Review of At Midnight: Billionaires in Disguise: Flicka (Runaway Princess Book 4) by Blair Babylon Flika's story continues - 5+++++ Stars After learning that Dieter is actually Raphael Mirabaud, Flicka is even more determined to get her divorce from Pierre. However, he is determined to take her back to Monaco by any means possible. Dieter/Raphael knows he has little choice in the decision of what happens when they leave that courthouse and are surrounded by Pierre's Secret Service. He accepts his father's help, knowing that it is the only chance they have. Flicka knows that this rescue isn't a true rescue, but a kidnapping, but she trusts Raphael to do what needs to be done. I can hardly wait for the last book in this series, to find out how things turn out. I just LOVE Blair's writing and how she makes you feel like you are there with her characters. **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**

I really enjoyed this installment to Flicka and Dieter's story. I especially loved the action in the end even though it does end on a cliffhanger. I can't wait to see what Blair has for the next book. I liked seeing how Flicka gets closer to Alina and bonds.

At Midnight is the 4th of a 5-book series and where, I feel, books 2 and 3 set the scene, At Midnight is where the magic/action happens. So, get the wine and chocolate at the ready and be prepared to not put the book down until it comes to an end! So, I want to start this by saying how nervous I was to read AM. I always have the same reaction with a book by Blair. Blair manages to bring out such a strong emotional connection between character and reader, for me, I end up at times, pacing the floor with anxiety, sobbing into tissues and scaring the life out my family screaming at the bad guys. Not to mention those chapter titles, I cannot help but deliberate over the possible meaning behind them. Never mind the need to stock pile chocolate. Throughout AM we see Dieter thrown back into the role of Raphael. Personally, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this new version of Dieter. I hope in the final book we get to see a return of the Dieter I’ve loved throughout the entire Billionaires in Disguise Series and all its associated spin-offs. While Raphael does all he can to find a way out, we slowly see his Father take an even tighter hold of the reins. So, who is in control here? Is it Valerian? Or is Valerian being controlled by Piotr IIyin? Will Raphael, Flicka and little Alina make it out alive? Will this little family ever get revenge and a HEA they deserve? Oh, so many emotions, action and questions all in one book. So many twists and turns not to mention a few ‘What the hell?’ moments. (I wasn’t joking about that chocolate stash!) I certainly feel that this is Blair Babylons best work by far and that’s saying something considering my love for Rae and Wulfram from the original Billionaires in Disguise series. I cannot thank the author Blair Babylon enough for the most nerve wracking, heart stopping, emotional book of 2018! If one thing this book has achieved, it’s this- my desperation to get my hands on the final book Happily Ever After!

At Midnight is a maddeningly exhilarating and fiercely passionate journey that will take you into the lion’s den and give you only the memory of hope to see you through each day. While Fate may march us towards our destiny, we still have the ability to make choices that will influence our path. When one door closes, we desperately seek another, but perhaps, all we have left is a window too small to jump out of. In those cases, we need to hold fast to our convictions, hold tightly onto love, and nurture the embers of hope. This marvelous story is a stunning continuation of this breath-taking series that Blair has lovingly brought to life. It feels as if all of her previous books have been building up to this explosively powerful story that has completely taken over my heart. Flicka, Alina, and Dieter find themselves in the unmovable iron grip of their worst nightmare. They dare not push their boundaries for the sake of Alina, and yet their desperation demands that they reach out to any ally they can find. Just when a flicker of hope is ignited, another darkness encroaches upon their world. Flicka’s past will not move on or be content buried under the dirt of forgetfulness. Instead, it forces her to face the gaping and sharply equipped maw of two deadly black demons. Will she find herself forever lost to the black of eternity or the beautifully crafted and torturous cage of lifelong ownership? Flicka learns even more about her mysterious Dieter throughout this journey. Each day brings a new close call from the ever present guillotine floating above their heads. Flicka slowly and methodically drinks in the power and meaning of family, love, and hope as she has never known before. Fully understanding and comprehending what she and Dieter have lovingly nurtured, they take and cherish the beauty and love they share to an even higher level. One in which no one can rip from their hearts. Blair Babylon has once again gifted her readers with a sublime masterpiece that enriches and emboldens her literary genius for all to enjoy and savor. She has proven once again why her stories are the crème de la crème of romantic suspense. Stunningly impressive characters combined with her trademark plots that hold a myriad of twist and turns have made and kept her one of my all-time favorite authors. Her ingenious creativity and bold passion will keep her in that ranking for the rest of my days.

So far the best in this series. Could not put it down. The story has more than it’s share of intrigue along with the normal side order of steam. On top of that, it ends on a cliffhanger and now I must wait for the next book. The bad guys are truly despicable and they are everywhere. A must read from my favorite author. Start with the first book and read through to the last, no disappointment here.

I'm stunned and nearly speechless. The "Flicka" series is nearly complete and I can't wait for the final story and yet I don't want it to end. Blair Babylon has outdone herself with the cliffhanger ending for At Midnight. I won't give anything away but it will take more than a miracle to get Flicka and Dieter/Raphael out of the predicament she left them in. This episode has Flicka, Alina and Dieter/Raphael pretty much under house arrest at his family home in Geneva. We learn more about his family and why he left them years ago. Flicka handles herself with her usual calm efficiency – even under the most dire circumstances. This series has been a nail-biter for me, just like her other ones, and I must have a bit of a masochistic streak to enjoy reading her stories. OK, I'm kidding about that, but, I'm in awe of her story-telling ability. She puts her characters through hell but manages to have everything work out OK in the end. This is why I know that she will save Flicka and Dieter/Raphael but September 18th for book 5, Happily Ever After, can't come soon enough. If you love tense, nail-biting, romantic, sexy stories I highly recommend this series as well as all of Blair Babylon's other books.
