“Lorina Liddel is terrified of embarrassing herself on national TV as the face of Dig Britain!, a new archeological reality show. Lorina would much rather keep her head down and her hands in the dirt underneath Ainslie Castle, but her on-screen partner is proving to be a major distraction.

Brother to the castle’s current lord, privileged, perfectly sculpted Gunner Ainslie is a sure bet to keep viewers glued to their screens. Lorina intends to keep the ladies’ man focused on the job at hand, but Gunner is confident he’ll soon have the beauty falling into his bed.

When an unexpected find turns the academic dig into an all-out treasure hunt, Lorina and Gunner get swept up in the excitement. But when their steamy tryst is caught on camera, it’ll take more than an award-winning performance to get them out of the hole they’re in…”

I found A Midsummer's Night Romp to be:

  • Funny
  • Cute

I read A Midsummer's Night Romp immediately upon finishing The Importance of Being Alice.


And I loved it just as much as book one. 

I adored Gunner in the first book. He was very much a free spirit and a flirt, so I easy understood his character early on. But he had a few surprises waiting for the reader to discover. The first of which totally tripped me up and completely changed how I thought the book was going to go.

I liked Lorina. If someone committed a wrong against me, she is very much the type of person I would love to have on my side. She was fiercely loyal and determined to gather the proof she was after. Lorina also had a kind heart that kept trying to trip her up but she was no less for it.

The humor in A Midsummer's Night Romp was on par with Katie MacAlister's other books. 


When the archaeological dig crew and the television crew filming the dig took over the site, they brought with them a whole host in interesting people. We have a flirt who wants in Gunner's pants, a guy with outlandish ideas for the show, a guy who makes the reader's skin crawl, a teenager with a fascination with horses and no filter on her mouth, and that is just the beginning. 

There was simply no piece and quite for Gunner and Lorina and I laughed every time they were shocked or horrified by something someone said. It made all those rare moments they had were they could simply talk (rather Gunner flirted and Lorina panicked all her secrets were going to come out) mean more. 

I liked watching them fall for each other around her secrets that separated them.


Overall

Overall, I highly enjoyed reading A Midsummer's Night Romp. This was a great sequel to The Importance of Being Alice.
