Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Martin's latest (after Devil's Prize) explores the aftermath of the Mexican-American War and its effect on California circa 1850. The nebulous laws aimed at settling land disputes between the Mexican Californios and the Americanos allowed some Anglos to steal vast quantities of California land. This story is about one such Anglo-Caralee McConnell's uncle-who has staked a claim to Rancho del Robles, the ranch owned for centuries by Ramon de la Guerra's family. Ramon, determined to "set things right, to find justice with or without the Anglo law," fights back under the guise of El Dragon. A midnight raid on the ranch nets him Caralee, who becomes his unwilling hostage and later his unwanted bride. Despite a contrived and predictable ending, the author's colorful overview of the awakening of California, its people and their way of life makes this a worthwhile read.

Review

"What an outlaw! Dark, dangerous and delicious! Midnight Rider is a rich panorama of Old California. I couldn't put it down!" --Georgina Gentry

First Sentence
Silver conchos. Caralee McConnell fixed her eyes on the row of shiny ornaments glinting in the torch light, the bright circles like badges of valor, arrowing down the Spaniard's long, lean leg. Read the first page

Hmm, some things are well... 1. The book's view toward this particular period of history is rather outdated today. I know you shouldn't really get so nit-picky about details such as history but I am afraid the author did not fulfill a good job about depicting this era. The Spaniard guy Ramon said something that was very pro-conquistador and declared that the Spanish had really good intentions for Indians and today we know that the forced labor against Indians actually destroyed their population. And secondly, there was a part that gave the land "back" to the Spaniards, "the rightful owners", instead of the Indians. Considering today's history classes depict Columbus as a villain as well as other European colonists, well, it was rather amusing to read a very saccharine interpretation of history.
2. Another cliched approach to "nicen" up the characters. Ramon for some reason is REALLY, REALLY nice to Indians and he and Cara do some cool community service stuff without a real motive, other than to appear like nice people to us.
3. Some sexual assault stuff that goes unnoticed and tolerated.
Good stuff:
1. Very nice and cosy.
2. The ambiance of old California is beautiful indeed. But then again, it is off set because the guy hero Ramon is actually Spanish so he isn't really a Californian.
3. Extra points for excellent sexual tension maintained throughout the novel. Read it !
4. Although I've criticized this book (because the novels that take place in Cali are my fav) a lot, trust me, it's really , really good.

This was my first Kat Martin novel. I got this book in a large historical romance novel lot I won in an online auction and this was the first I chose to read.
Kat Martin is a great writer. It's pretty rare in Romance novels that the side characters come alive. I could hear Pedro and Two Hawks in their voices. Truely exceptional.
Carly was truely one of a kind. She creates strong- exceptionally strong willed- women, on par with those created by Iris Johansen or Elizabeth Lowell.
This was my first by Kat Martin, but certainly not my last. Lovely!

I don't think I have read a better book in quite a while. I first fell in love with Kat Martin's historical fiction NOTHING BUT VELVET. It was the first book I had read by her, and this is even a little better. Never have I read a book that has as much intrigue, adventure and sizzling love scens as this one. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. Ramon and Carly are a match made in heaven and kissed upon by the angels!

This was a truly wonderful book, I love this author. There are things that I would change about it, ofcorse, but they are all very little things. Please give this book a try. Close to the ending it fell apart a little bit, and i wanted the relationship to be more solid before it got rocky, again, but all in all it was a very very good book.
