Review: Midsummer Night's Sin by Kasey Michaels

It was a good story though the mystery part I figured out real early on in the story. Regina was on her first season of the ton.  She knew her father wanted her to marry her off to at least a Duke.   Her father Reginald Hackett was into shipping and made a fortune.  In fact he bought his wife who is lady Leticia her family had the social standings but not the money to pay his debts.  He thought Regina marriage should advance him even farther.
Miranda her cousin was at her second season.  Her Aunt Clair was taking both Miranda her daughter Regina around. Reginald was paying the expenses for both households. Regina mother was always drinking to hard to take her into society.
Miranda planned with her maid, costumes and stole her brothers invitation to a masquarde ball. Then told her mother that the Aunt was taking them to a recital.
Then they went to the ball Regina said only an hour, but gave into Miranda.
Regina was asked to dance and she did and went out in the gardens with Robin Goodfellow (Puck).  Not knowing that the only women there were actresses and other  Ladies not known for their innocence.
When Puck realized how innocent Regina was he warned her off.  When Regina looked for her cousin she could not find her. Puck ended up looking with her and Regina saw a lot even her father in a bad way.  Puck found Miranda mask and cape and found where she was taken from.
Their had been a lot of small blond women abducted lately. Regina felt it was part her fault for going with Miranda. She got Puck to let her help find her cousin.
Puck also realized his brother Black Jack who worked for the crown was also looking for all the women that have been missing the last few weeks.
It kept my interest in the book going. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.
