    One thought on “Love on a Midsummer Night

    1. Victoria Vane

      Very enjoyable and romantic "second chance" love story. I adored the characters (both primary and secondary), and the prose. It was all very nicely done. I should also mention that I read this book through in one sitting! Looking forward to Angelique and James' story.

      Christy English gets better with every novel she writes! This one was such a pleasure to read. We come into the novel just as Arabella Darlington is finanally free from the old man she was forced to marry. (He died) With her part of the dower portion she is planning on finding a little cottage to live in when she is called on by Raymond Olivier Earl Of Pembroke, the man she loved before forced into mariage against her will. She is also called on by Hawthore's nephew who intends to get his hands [...]

      A charming Regency retelling of A Midsummer Night's Dream! Love on a Midsummer Night was a lovely historical romance. Loved this book!Arabella was a very strong heroine. A cruel father, a forced marriage to an old man, and threats from the new Duke in an attempt to force her into marriage. She survives all that and refuses to let that get her down. I really liked her. I thought she was a lovely character.Pembroke has lived the past years in misery, thinking that the woman he loved and who promis [...]

      A lovely, gentle and lyrical Regency romance with themes and images from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" woven through. The hero is a dissolute rake who has never been able to forget his first love. The heroine is a vulnerable widow who had been forced into marriage with a much older man and is now forced to stand against his lascivious heir. She turns to her old flame for help, and finds herself falling in love all over again. A sweet and easy read.

      A delightfully wicked historical romance! Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies:Ten years ago, Arabella Darlington left the only man she has ever loved, after accepting his engagement ring, and then married a duke. She had grown up with an overbearing, cruel father, who had made his fortune through slave trading, only to be forced into the bed of her aged husband. Now, as the Duchess of Hawthorne, Arabella has just buried her husband, a man she never loved. Just when she thinks she is about to [...]

      Lovely book - Christy's descriptions make you feel as if you are there. Wonderful characters that you come to care about. Can't wait until the next one!

    10. ksstannard

      Yes, yes, yesThus continuation of the Shakespeare in Love series is well done. Arabella is a strong, likable heroine who finds her love and new friends too.

    11. Teresa Gibson

      While not quite a retelling of A Midsummer Night's Dream, this does begin with a similar plot: a young woman forced to marry the man not of her dreams. Unlike Hermia in Shakespeare's comedy, Arabella in LOAMN does abide by her father's wishes and weds an older wealthier duke, who passes away ten years later. When the duke's nephew threatens her life, Arabella runs away, seeking protection by the man she loves, the Earl of Pembroke. But Pembroke doesn't trust her, and a large part of the story de [...]

      I loved the character of Arabella she was a very good, very strong, intelligent heroine. I liked Raymond Olivier, the Earl of Pembroke, as well, except for the fact that he tried to forget his childhood love with Arabella by whoring with other women. How can you do that??Both Raymond and Arabella brought a lot of emotional baggage with them from their pasts to a potential relationship, and yet Raymond fell in love with Arabella once again - actually, he had never stopped loving her - and protec [...]

    13. Andreajanel

      This book provided a diversion when I needed one. However, not one of my favorites. The villian seemed a little too contrived and sprung from aether. The heroine was a little too helpless, and while it seems the author was insinuating that her reticence was the result of her terrible childhood, I just found it irritating. I thought Raymond's character was the most fully developed, and even his transformation from rake to rescuer wasn't very thorough. This book was mostly gloss, with very little [...]

    14. Cherie

      DNFChristy English is not for me. I find her plots engaging but it seems as if she has all the pieces to the puzzle but they don't fit together because she incorporates too many ideas instead of finessing a couple of them. I liked the third of this series, I read it first, but this one is already meh and I've too many other books to get to.

    15. Melissa

      2.5 stars. I comparison to the first novel in the series, this one just story wise felt weaker. But it was a nice read. I think the next book will be better though so I'll read onward to the next.

    16. Christina

      This was a pretty good story, wished the ending was a bit more determined with the bad guy but was a cute story. I won a free copy of this book.

    17. Christy English

      I love this book, but then again, I wrote it :) I hope you guys enjoy watching Pembroke fall in love again as much as I did.

    18. Beth Johnson

      I think the writing is fine, but I don't like all these wide-eyed, innocent females. I want a novel about Angelique!
