REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Midnight Kiss by Haley Whitehall

Midnight Kiss
Haley Whitehall
Unjustly accused of stealing, housekeeper April Windmire is turned out on the streets without pay. With no place to go and no friends she stows away on the Mississippi River steamboat, the Queen Bee. Her hopes to through the journey to St Louis are dashed when a handsome white officer finds her. But instead of turning her in, he takes her to his private quarters where she fights her growing attraction to a man she cannot have.

Matt Seever's wife died four year ago, leaving him two small mulatto children. But his job as an officer on the Queen Bee isn’t family friendly. He knows he needs a new wife, but no southern white woman will marry him. When April lands in his lap, his prayers are answered. Or are they? April’s not the trusting type and racial prejudice runs deep in post Civil-War Missouri. Just when Matt convinces April he loves her, his new family becomes a target and there’s no backing down from this fight.

Together, April and Matt must brave heinous hate crimes  to find an enduring love.

Sarah's Review: 
Thanks to Haley Whitehall for the opportunity to read and review this great series.  Historical romances are a genre that I really have to be in the mood for and it happened that I was sucked in with the first one and I looked forward to each one after that. 

This story is about the steamboat officer that we met in the second story.  This story shows how interracial relationships were seen after the Civil War and how people still so violent towards people that were involved with former slaves and people that were not white.  This story, in my mind, is about love conquering all.


  1. I'd like to think that love does conquer all. Thank you for reading the Moonlight Romance series. I'll let you know when the last book in the series is available.

  2. I would go to Egypt when the pyramid of Giza was just completed.
