Midnights Wild Passion is written by Anna Campbell and I haven’t read any of her books in quite a while and I knew once I was fifty pages into the book that I would just fall in love with everything about this book… The characters were so genuine and portrayed in a way that I felt I could relate with them. The plot was also full of surprises and intensity, and the romance was completely satisfying till the very last page. Definitely worth it!!! I was totally seduced by Midnight’s Wild Passion!!!
