I didn't mind the character of Nicole and couldn't blame her for taking off after she discovers her fathers dark secret. Gerard and Bianca make an appearance in this book and you really do have to love Gerard, showing his love and loyalty to his life long friend.
This is an enjoyable escape type of book. The setting is very good for the type of novel and the characters very vivid. An entertaining and fast read.
Midnight Temptation is book 2 in Nancy Gideon's Midnight Series of historical vampire romance novels. It takes place about 17 years following the events of the first book. This is the story of Nicole, the progeny of Arabella and Louis, and her journey of self discovery. For most of her life, she's been kept in the dark regarding her father's secret life. Nicole begins to experience unexplained things about herself that make her unique from other humans. This leads her to inadvertently come across Louis's dark secret that he is a vampire and therefore, she is a hybrid. Horrified, she runs away to Paris, where she falls in with the bohemian crowd, escapes the dangers of Paris' unsavory residents and her father's past, copes with her new found lifestyle resulting from her being a half-breed, and falls in love.
Similar to the first book in the series, Ms. Gideon does a good job of not overdoing the romance. I felt the character development was much stronger in this second novel. I absolutely adored Nicole and found myself relating to her and rooting for her. Her relationship with the love interest, Marchand, was very complex and tested numerous times. Gerard and Bianca are up to their old tricks again, finding ways to torture Louis by taking Nicole under their wing. Readers are provided with more insight into Gerard, who I think is a very intriguing character and should be the featured character in a future book in this series. (I realize more books have been written in this series, but as of writing this I haven't looked to see if any actually meet this criteria.) Historical context was appropriately captured and helped the story flow. You could really get a sense of living in Paris during this tension filled era with the revolutionary ideas. The author's writing was at a good pace. So far, this is my favorite of the series and I look forward to reading more.
Nicole is 17 and is having strange things happening to her. She is physically stronger and can hear better just to mention a couple. She knows she needs to speak to her parents soon.
Her parents are so in love, it seems like they are more devoted to each other every day. They are also so loving to her. She hopes she can have that someday soon. She wonders sometimes why her mother seems to be aging and her father isn't.
One night she follows her father when he goes out at night and has the shock of her life! She sees him taking the blood of a woman, he is a monster! He sees her and runs home. A chat is coming that should have come already.
She leaves and goes to Paris, thinking she can never live with her father again., but is she afraid of the monster she feels he has become or what she feels is happening to her? In Paris, she meets Marchand, the love of her life and another couple who say they are old friends of her father. Who can she trust?
My first comment wants to be "what does a 17 year old know about love" but I do have to remember that young ladies were raised to make an advantageous marriage and few probably made a love match. Nicole has so much thrown at her in such a short period of time, she really is brave, like her mother. Marchand also deals with many emotions and I really wasn't sure how this would turn out for them.
I liked this book as much as I liked the first in this series. I felt that the characters are well depicted and I liked the little twist in the end with one of the characters!
