Rating: You Could Read
Reviewed by: Shawn Weisser
Charlotte Purcell doesn't believe in magic, and the prediction she'll see her future husband's face in a mirror at midnight is sheer nonsense. Even when dashing Lord Knollton's reflection appears beside hers as the midnight hour chimes, she dismisses it as coincidence...and fights her potent attraction to him. Noblemen don't marry dowerless women. Nor do their wives pursue art careers—and paint Charlotte must!
Knollton has problems—big problems. A band of smugglers rules the coast near his home, and the rogues elude capture by disappearing into thin air! Worse, they plan to murder him. So now isn't the time to court a woman—especially an impulsive artist who plunges headlong into peril to pursue her art.
Yet...the moment Charlotte and Knollton waltz in the moonlight and share a forbidden kiss, The Magic of Moonlight draws them into a whirlwind of passion and danger they cannot escape...
Although I knew what the ending would be, I really enjoyed reading The Magic of Moonlight. It was a fun little read. The only problem I had was the use of the fortuneteller in the story, as it seemed quite random. Where does she fit in the story? Fiona Neal has a good story but a few details need to be flushed out and perhaps turn this into a full novel. She did a good job clarifying the main characters as they were but they remained a bit flat. I would have loved to read more and had a bit more flushed out conflict. Although there were some issues, I really did enjoy reading the book.
