5.0 out of 5 stars True sexy romance with mystery and suspense June 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of Lisa Kleypas best. The book was filled with suspense and intrique, yet surpass its role as a true romance novel. The chemistry between Addie and Ben was passionate, sensitive and mature. The twists and mystery of the plot was well thought-out and plausible. Overall, it was an exceptional romance amongst romance novels. Thank you, Lisa!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book- Complex and captivating Feb. 16 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Give Me Tonight is about a woman named Addie who feels lost after her beloved aunt dies. Grief stricken, she faints but is consequently thrown back to the year 1880. This means she has been transported fifty years back from her time. However, she emerges not as Addie, but as her great -aunt Adeline Warner. Although she is confused and disorientated, she cannot help but feel a strong attraction to her "father's" ranch foreman, Ben Hunter. Though Ben is prejudiced against her because he thinks she is spoiled, he also cannot help but be drawn to the new sensitive and compassionate Adeline. Together, they manage to change their destinies and find the meaning of true love.
The back cover says: Addie was drawn as if by an all powerful magnet to Ben Hunter from the moment she met him. This strong handsome man was different from the other ranch hands on her father's vast Texas spread, as different as Addie was from the meek and mild women around her. Both of them had a secret, a secret they jealously guarded from the world.. a secret they would reveal only when the white heat of their passion burned away all barriers between them..... and they held nothing back from each other in the flaming light of their love.
Overall, this is a very well written and captivating book. It's so engaging that you really can't put it down. It contains just the right amount of suspense, mystery but also romance and tenderness. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Love That Lasts Through Time. Absolutely Wonderful!! May 30 2003
By Jana L. Perskie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an "unputdownable" love story, taut with suspense, filled with passion and romance...and also a unique tale of time-travel. Lisa Kleypas certainly outdoes herself with this novel.
Addie Peck, an orphan, raised by her beloved Aunt Leah, is 20 years old. She is an independent, caring young woman, a hardworking nurse, yet a bit of a flapper in 1930s, Sunrise, Texas. She & her aunt have worked and scrimped very hard to survive in this time of The Great Depression. Now her aunt is dying of cancer. Addie is trying to face a new life, a future alone, in a town where she has never felt she belonged. She has many suitors but has never loved except for her aunt, and, of course the parents she cannot remember. She has a recurring dream of a dark, mysterious stranger who comes to her at night and loves her passionately. She feels that, whoever he is, wherever he is, they belong together - she wants to be with him in reality. She also has a frightening dream of an old man with green eyes who stares at her and whispers, "Adeline. Adeline, where have you been?"
Aunt Leah had often told Addie tales of their family history. She talked about her own grandfather, Addie's great-grandfather, Russell Warner. Warner was a self-made man and owned a large and thriving cattle ranch in Sunrise in the 1880s. He was murdered when Leah was just 10 years old. The murderer had never been caught. The prime suspect was Warner's right-hand man, Ben Hunt, a handsome cowboy, foreman, and a transplanted Harvard man. (a REALLY smart cowboy! :)) He left the ranch after Russell Warner died. Then there was Adeline Warner, Russell's favorite child, and the one most like him...even though she was a daughter. She was beautiful, looked just like Addie, her namesake, but unlike Addie she was spoiled and selfish. She disappeared mysteriously a few months before her father's death, and no one ever heard from her again or discovered any information about her. Caroline, Leah's mother and Adeline's older sister, left Texas with her husband and daughter and resettled in North Carolina. Her mother and brother went with them, always preferring the refinements of the East to the wild Texan ways. And the once grand ranch died. Only Leah returned to Sunrise, Texas, to live out her adult years and raise her niece.
Then, the night before Leah's death, a stranger comes to the small town of Sunrise. He is an old man with remarkable bottle-green eyes. And he can't keep his eyes off of Addie. I won't spoil this extraordinary story for you by telling more. However, if you are a Lisa Kleypas fan, this is one of her best. And if you just like to read good fiction that will totally absorb you, this is it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Kleypas's Best Dec 28 2008
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Formulaic and typical of the late 1980's romances Lisa Kleypas's novel Give Me the Night is nothing like her later novels. It is missing strong characters, a hero's point of view and an empathetic heroine.

Addie's beloved aunt has just passed away and with no other close relatives Addie feels alone. It is 1930 and Addie notices an old man who asks her why she left. Addie has never seen him before but discovers he is Ben Hunt, a man accused of killing her grandfather. Quite suddenly Addie has a terrible headache and wakes up in 1880 in Sunrise, Texas and is living the life of her aunt Adeline, a woman who went missing years earlier and to whom Addie bears a striking resemblance.

Addie fits into the life uncomfortably but begins to accept that she will not be going back. She is the spoiled daughter of her father and she despises Ben, the foreman on her father's ranch. She is ill tempered with him almost instantly. She feels Ben will kill her father/grandfather and she is going to stop him. Now the only proof she has that he did murder him was the info her aunt gave her before she died.

It seems that the real Adeline was a spoiled temperamental brat almost engaged to her neighbor's son. Addie is furious that Ben treats her with disdain and her dander is always up. I guess she forgets that Ben only knows the other Adeline and she just expects him to know right away that she is different. She is not in love at all with the almost fiancé and mostly strings him along. When her father gets involved in a range war with her fiance's family, she adamantly refuses to stop seeing this man. Her stubbornness knows no bounds, earlier she wanted to break it off with her fiance but now that her father wants her to stop seeing him, she fights to to be with a man she does not love.

Ben's point of view is rarely explored and I never felt like I really knew him. I certainly never knew why he liked much less loved Addie. Kleypas has certainly come a long way as a writer. The writing here is not terrible but the characters lack depth and the romance was not passionate, so typical of Kleypas's later novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, despite inconsistencies April 9 2005
By E. Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This early Kleypas book was well worth the premium price I paid - it shows all the promise that made me love her later books. She peoples "Give Me Tonight" with unforgettable characters, many larger than life. I was really taken with the father Russell in all his Texas glory. But his role was much smaller than our hero and heroine, Ben Hunter and Adeline (Addie) Warner. They were tinder to fire. Wonderful tension between them which resolves itself nicely with beautifully drawn love scenes. I enjoyed the fact that Ben keeps telling Addie he was no angel before they met ... and there is the fact that Adeline is keeping something from him too. That something is the fact Adeline's body is now inhabited by Addie Peck from 50 years in the future. The new Addie is different than the old Adeline. She is caring, responsible and not spoiled at all. She also doesn't trust Ben since in the future she was told he murdered her Great-Grandfather - who she now calls "father"! Yes, she is in the body of the woman who was her great-aunt. The great-aunt that disappeared 30 years before Addie was born! So there is a mystery to solve and a life to save - and the rather bizarre Mr. Diaz with his all-knowing eyes. You will enjoy meeting Leah (niece) and Caroline (now Addie's sister). And the description of life in the 1930s vs. 1880s was amazing.

Now the inconsistencies - first, Ben appears in the 1930s as an old man. He calls out to Addie "where have you been," and later you are given the impression he found her again because of the love they shared in 1880. When Adeline disappeared in 1880, they hardly liked each other!! She was the spoiled boss's daughter being courted by the rich neighbor's son. Also, the rather innocent Addie in 1930 has sensuous dreams of Ben - but since Adeline (1880) had never slept with Ben when she disappeared (to live a second life as Addie), how could she have those dreams? Also Caroline confessed to an affair with a ranch foreman before she married and of having had a child by him. Her husband accepted this willingly?? Even though the child's father was willing to marry her, she married someone else?? I just didn't believe it. Now the fact that Addie in 1880 turned out to be innocent - that was even harder to believe !

OK - suspend belief - put all these irregularities behind you because you will truly enjoy the storyline. It ends uniquely - don't peek ahead. But it could have used an epilogue to tell us what the "changed" lives were like for those that Addie had loved in the future, most especially the young Leah. Still - I'm glad I didn't miss reading this book!
