In the night, all rules are forgotten …

Eloisa James, the acclaimed author of Potent Pleasures, returns to Regency England with an unforgettable new heroine—a genteel but naughty innocent who gets more than she bargains for when she finally says yes to love.

To her legions of adoring suitors, it comes as quite a shock when Lady Sophie York rejects an offer of marriage from the dashing, rakish Patrick Foakes in favor of amiable but dull Braddon Chatwin. He may be an earl, but it is Patrick’s stolen kisses that sear her lips.

When Patrick, in disguise, scales a ladder to retrieve his friend’s fiancée, he never expects the elopement to be his own. Neither does Sophie, Braddon, or the rest of the tattling ton. One hasty wedding later, the passionate innocent and the sophisticated rogue play out their own intricate dance as Sophie masters what it takes to keep a man where he belongs. And Patrick learns the ultimate lesson in love.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sheer reading delight: witty, wise, and passionately romantic.”

    Mary Balogh, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A steamy, satisfying romantic romp…Romance writing does not get much better than this.”


  • “Shifting from London to the Middle East, Midnight Pleasures is an enthralling read from a vibrant new talent. Ms. James delivers a sensual, exciting, fresh romance that is pure reading pleasure.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “Ms. James has given us a brilliant plot and marvelous characters.”


  • “James proves herself a notable chronicler of the genre here. Her spritely tale takes on substance with a subplot about events in the Ottoman Empire. In addition, while the customary hallmarks are in evidence—the breathless, drawn-out sex scenes, the misunderstandings that almost ruin everything—these contretemps flow naturally from the characterizations and plot and contribute to an engaging story.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Lady Sophie York is set to elope—but with whom? Sophie…has advanced ideas about love, and worse, an excellent education…The intrepid and intelligent Sophie, of course, saves the day, and Patrick falls in love with her all over again by the end of this lively and vividly written tale. Sensual for a Regency and genuinely fun.”

About the Author
Author Eloisa James

Eloisa James, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got an MPhil from Oxford, a PhD from Yale, and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. In 2013 she won a RITA Award for Best Romance Novella. She teaches Shakespeare in the English department at Fordham University in New York. She is the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
