"A Midsummer's Night's Sin" by Kasey Michaels is a wonderful historical romance. It's filled with humor, danger, seduction, intrigue, and lots of passion. The characters are interesting, the dialogue well-written, and the plot keeps you eagerly turning each page. My only regret is that I missed the first book in this trilogy about the Blackthorn scoundrels, but I will be reading it soon. This is a definite must read for Regency romance fans.
