He is desperate to regain the life that was cruelly taken from him so many years ago. Louis seeks the help of a phys [...]
I very much enjoyed this first in the series. Bella is quite a tough, plucky heroine and I loved seeing her and Louis together. I look forward to the next in the series.
The entire time I was reading I kept thinking that the story was very familiar to me. Turns out that this was originally published in 1994 and that I read it about 10 or so years ago.You have a vampire not wanting to be a vampire anymore. He seeks out the help of a doc and falls in love with the doc's daughter. The daughter doesn't now that her new man is a vampire and doesn't listen to her father's protests against their coupling. This is paranormal romance, if you like the genre you will most [...]
This was just as good the second time around. Love vampires and throw in the setting being a historical fiction time line Love it!
Yeah, this was OK. It read pretty quickly, but it really didn't do it for me. Arabella & Louis had quite the chemistry, and the story was good, but there was just something that I didn't connect with.
This is a reread for me. Love the new covers!Originally reviewed at Midnight Kiss
This story was ridiculous. It was extremely cliche and lacked imagination. I don't really know what else to say, except that I power-read it in a few hours because I just wanted to get it over with, and was secretly hoping it would improve. As far as romance goes, it was about as spicy as a banana pepper so, not very spicy at all. Sorry I guess vamp romance novels, and the Twilight For Grownups Club is just not meant for me.
Enchanted since she first laid eyes on him the heroine has secretly longed for the dark and mysterious man who frequents her home in search of her fathers doctoring.

Loved this bookI love vampires and this was one of my favorite books. I've never read anything from this author before but I've been pleasantly surprised with this book. Once I started on this book I didn't put it down until I finishedd that was 3 this morning. I loved how the characters were "fleshed out", you could picture them in your mind and feel there emotions as if you knew them personally. The suffering of Louis, the love from Arabella, the moral struggle of the doctor as he tries to bal [...]

There are dangers surrounding their alliance and nothing is simple or easy.This is a compelling romance between a vampire and a human. It is in the vein of [...]
Midnight Kiss, book one in the Touched by Midnight series was originally released in 1994 and has held up well in its current re-release. Dark and emotionally overcast this book had a lingering ominous feel throughout the story. A raw depiction of the characters positive and negative traits coupled with unexpected conclusions completed this work successfully. At times Ms. Gideon's writing style felt a bit stiff but as a whole an interesting plot and cast make this book worth discovering.*I recei [...]
Read this book way back in the day (18 years ago?) and I have never forgotten it. Arabella's curiosity and strength make for a wonderful heroine. Louis' protectivness and self loathing, though typical in this genre, are an interesting contrast to his desire for Arabella. Only read up to #3 in the series but really enjoyed each one! Not predictable - though they don't always end like the reader hopes - they definitely invoke a strong emotional response.
good for a rainy day
Fantastic! I didn't want it to end.
Wow, what an exciting book! This book was long and I enjoyed every page!
Book 1 in her Vampire Series. Very good. Try to get your hands on her books to read if you can, they are very hard to find.
Review pending.I received a complimentary copy from the publisher thru NetGalley for an honest review.
