I finally read an Anne Stuart book I liked.  Didn't like the two others I read, but "A Rose at Midnight" was great.  Good writing, very steamy and a yummy tortured hero.


However, Roses and Midnight are never mentioned in the text that I can remember, which leaves me wondering--how in the heck did she come up with the title? 


Usually authors will use a title that sums up the book nicely or allude to the title somewher in the text (May Jo Putney often does this), but I have no clue here!

Yeah the titles seem to come out of left field some times.  Just like the covers. Sometimes the covers seem to have nothing to do with the book.  The people on the cover look nothing like they're described in the book and the setting doesn't match any scene from the book.
