“I couldn’t put this down! STROKE OF MIDNIGHT has definitely rekindled my love for the series!
~ Under the Covers

Lara Adrian has me eating my words. Just when I had said that the newer characters of the series haven’t been holding my attention as well as the first few books has, Adrian brings out a story that not only has vividly developed characters but it also has the suspense and the romance that remind me of the first books so much. More impressive is the fact that this is only a novella.

However, all this shouldn’t actually be that surprising considering the fact that Lara Adrian has been one of my favorite authors for some time now and her writing has always been impeccable. But there was something about this book that made me enjoy it so much more. First off, it’s set in Morocco and Rome, two very different but equally stunning places. I loved what the atmosphere of these settings brought to the story and it definitely added much more appeal to me as a reader.

Also, the premise of the story is quite unique as well. Jehan and and Seraphina are bound together by ancients laws and their families. To prevent war from occurring, they must join together in a love match. They have a few ceremonies to do and eight nights to get to know each other and decide if they can go through with this. This idea works very well with a short novella. The time constraint creates that urgency while also upping the stakes a little bit. Surprisingly, Adrian is able to fit a well-formed romance and some action scenes in here as well.

I couldn’t put this down! STROKE OF MIDNIGHT has definitely rekindled my love for the series!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I’m a little behind in the series, but good to know that the most recent is really good.
