Book Review: Eileen Wilks’ Midnight Promises

Midnight Promises


Eileen Wilks

It is part of the Conveniently Wed, , series and is a contemporary romance in Paperback edition that was published by Silhouette on February 1, 2000 and has 249 pages.

Explore it on Goodreads or Amazon.

Other books by this author which I have reviewed include Death Magic, Tied with a Bow, Mortal Ties, Ritual Magic, Unbinding, Mind Magic, Dragon Spawn,

First in the At Midnight romance series (other series it is somehow involved in include Conveniently Wed and 982 in the Silhouette Intimate Moments).

My Take

OK, not what I was expecting. After her World of the Lupi series, I was not expecting a normal romance. Wilks is a good writer and I did enjoy Midnight Promises with its schoolteacher-turned-handywoman who was married to her childhood friend, the small town hottie, on the spur of the moment by Elvis in Las Vegas.

The underlying issues are Annie’s need for stability and safety while Jack doesn’t trust in love and runs when it rears its scary head. Their conflict is tied in with black market drug dealing which Jack uncovers in Borneo in connection with the international construction company for whom he works building clinics, hospitals, and schools in third world countries. Unfortunately, it seems someone isn’t happy that Jack won’t let up on the investigation. And now Annie’s a target too.
