Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?
Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY VIRGO. Non-Paranormal, New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Midnight Lily is the next romance novel in the very unique Sign of Love series. Each book is based around a sign of the zodiac, this one being Virgo. Each book is completely standalone, with no interlinking characters. I would however highly recommend this series.

Holden Scott is in serious need of change. A huge star in the world of football, his status within his team and in the eyes of the public has been shattered due to his off the field antics. Finding himself alone to beat his demons, and in the remote forests of Colorado, he knows this is his last chance at sorting his life out. But when a beautiful woman appears on the edge of the woods dressed in white lace, he has no idea the impact she will have on him and the direction his life will take next. She makes him want to be a better man and in turn he gives her a freedom that she longs for. Will they find a life outside the forest? Or will life take an unexpected turn.

I need to keep this review brief out of respect for this awesomely talented author. It would be so easy to accidently give a prospective reader too much information and in the case of this book, that would be unforgivable. Read the synopsis, it is intentionally vague. That my friends is for a very good reason. This book is full of intrigue, mystery and suspense. But of course this is Mia Sheridan, she likes her twists and turns and believe me when I say, this is without doubt a book that will leave you saying “Well I didn’t expect that”.

So did I like it? Yes and no. Of course, as expected, this book is beautifully written, is well thought out and extremely visceral in the emotions it creates. Her books are always so atmospheric; she certainly is one of the best authors at creating a world so easily in your mind. For me though, and this is purely personal, it just wasn’t my bag. My blog sister used a word that was so true and I wish I could share it with you, but alas it would give too much away. Do not however, let this put you off. This is a very good book, just not MY type of book. And that is why I gave Midnight Lily 4 Crowns. I cannot give it less purely because of my personal opinion. It has to be about the book and I know that many, many readers will adore it.

 

A unique, atmospheric and well written romance by a very talented writer. If you love Mia Sheridan’s work, you shouldn’t let it pass you by. Just stay away from the hideous spoiler reviews; you need to go in blind.
