Theodora “Theo” Becket has found it necessary to sell her embroidery work in order to help her family survive, a fact that she has to keep secret to keep shame from her family.

Courting Midnight is yet another fabulous story by Emma Holly. Fans of this great author will not be disappointed and I anticipate that those new to Ms. Holly’s work will also become spellbound by her. I have always enjoyed a tortured hero who is then brought back into the light by the woman that entices him back to the world of the living.
