Synopsis from Goodreads: As far as Alix is concerned, she has no past only today, and her plans for the future: creating a dynamic stable of Thoroughbreds that will take the 1830s British racing world by storm. When forced into assuming the role of Lord Griffon's wife in London, her plans are threatened by disturbing images of a castle from her past that fight to resurface. Alix is determined to find a way to take control of her life and fulfill her dreams. This women's historical fiction novel is the first in the Midnight Series."
My Review: I really enjoyed this book. This book is full of intrigue, scandal and mystery as well as characters you want to root for. I connected strongly with the main character, Alix, and over the course of the book I came to really like Nicholas as well. I loved the animals in the story as well and felt that added a lot to the story and the depth of the characters. My only complaints about the book were that it ended rather abruptly and at a frustrating point, which I suppose I can forgive because it will have a sequel, and there were a few side stories and plots that took away a bit from the story rather than adding to it. Overall though I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who likes historical fiction with a bit of intrigue mixed in.
