"In the Midnight Hour" is a recent release from Kimberly Raye. It was written back in 1999, but just released. Since the subject matter concerns an amorous ghost, I'm guessing her publishers wanted to take advantage of the current paranormal market. It's a well-written story with fun characters.

Valentine is a ghost and his spirit is grounded to the bed he died in. While alive, he was quite the lover and, until his bed ended up in a dusty corner, he found a way to materialize at midnight and continue his lusty love life. After several 'dry' years, his bed is finally back in circulation and when he catches sight of the full-figured beauty in the antique store, he influences her to buy 'his' bed.

Veronica is a woman with a plan. After escaping from a stifling home life, she's working two jobs and going to college to be an accountant. She WILL have an exciting career life instead of settling down to be a wife (this is where the 90s flavor comes in). She's a level-headed type and has never believed in ghosts...until Valentine.

Ronnie and Valentine strike a bargain. He'll help her with her term paper for her human sexuality class (after all, he's an expert!) and she'll help him discover what happened to the woman he died for. Now if they can both just STOP falling in love.

There are a few references that you can only get if you lived through the 90s and the attitudes are also affected by the era when the book was written...but it's still fun and engaging and quite decadent for that timeframe. ( )

It's a fun read, a ghost who is attached to a bed. A bed bought by a woman too busy for a love life because she's too busy working and studying. One of the courses she's doing is on human sexuality and when the ghost starts seducing her she uses him for a paper.

It's an interesting and fun read, light and amusing, but probably wouldn't survive serious critical examination. ( )
