The words rattled around Jonas' head. What was the punishment again? Death? Dismemberment? Jonas, the newest addition to the gardening staff, can't recall the exact penalty for breaking the rule. What does it matter anyway? He would never dream of meddling with the Earl of Bromhurst's haughty daughters.
Until he comes face to face with Lady Ariela, the eldest of the Master's daughters.
Her elusive smile and open manner cause him to question his convictions. In no time, he's drawn into Lady Ariela's world of mystery and intrigue, a world where she and her sisters will do anything-including leaving twelve empty beds at midnight-to escape their father's strict rules.
Only Jonas can uncover the truth and save them from their father's wrath and their own folly, if he is willing to risk everything he's ever worked for.
Midnight Sisters is a reimagining of the classic fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses that will win the hearts of readers of all ages.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
MIDNIGHT SISTERS was a young adult historical romance based on the Grimm's The Twelve Dancing Princesses. It felt a little magical even though their was no magic involved. Overall, a sweet romance with a few exciting moments of danger and endearing characters. I loved Jonas from the start, even if he is a lovesick fool. As the story is told from his perspective and his interaction with the sisters is limited, I didn't have a strong connection to his romantic interest, Ariela, although I liked her well enough. It was a unique twist on this fairy tale, as was the sisters' nightly expeditions. I really liked how the author really made this story her own and that I wasn't quite sure how it all would play out. Little twists and surprises were woven throughout, which I loved. There wasn't that instantaneous and easy relationship between Jonas and Ariela, nor was a relationship between them easily accepted, which felt realistic. The romance started rather naively (as they so often do), but gradually grew over time and then much more in the end when Jonas and Ariela depended upon each other. In the end, was it what I wished for? This was a sweet and enjoyable read. A little on the lighter side, but with a happily-ever-after ending that left a smile on my face. Content: Some violence and slight innuendo, but clean. Source: Received a complimentary copy from the author, which did not require a review nor affect it in any way.
