About the Author
Morgan Kelly writes historical romance thanks to an obsession with 19th-century Gothic novels that has plagued her (in a good way) since childhood, when she first discovered the Bronte sisters. Morgan lives in the Pacific Northwest of Canada with her husband, their three feral cats, one silly little dog, and ten thousand precarious piles of books and records. When she isn't dreaming up new and daring subplots or watching BBC documentaries whilst sipping tea and knitting a sweater, she is likely reading three books at once, playing Tetris, or planning her next Buffy the Vampire Slayer and/or Doctor Who marathon weekend. This is her first romance, though she publishes literary and speculative fiction as well.
“Kelly’s thoughtful debut novella sensitively evokes the horrors of war and the emotional difficulties facing veterans in peacetime, and the atmospheric descriptions of 1920s London and Victorian high society illuminate the temporal and social differences separating the lovers.”
“A lush Gothic romance nested within a time-traveling ghost story, Midnight in Your Arms is the very best kind of fairytale, an inventive tapestry of the nostalgic and the new that begs to be read into the early hours of the morning. A marvelous debut!”
-Michael Boccacino, author of Charlotte Markham and the House of Darkling
