Moonlight and Shadow

Moonlight and ShadowMoonlight and Shadow by Isolde Martyn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This story follows one Heloise Ballaster, a silver haired young woman with a touch of precognition. She gets forced into a marriage with the very wonderful Sir Miles Rushden, and they mutually decide to work on getting the marriage annulled so that they can go their separate ways... not to mention that Sir Miles is previously betrothed. But before they can manage it, Heloise is kicked from her father's home, and decides to follow Miles to get him to accept her... or at least protect her until they get their annulment.

The historical accuracy in this book is pretty well straight on. I know that the author takes some liberties, but all the liberties that she took were based in fact.

It was really fun "Seeing" Miles deal with what he feels for Heloise, and what he thinks he should feel for her. The same goes for Heloise. Their banter is witty, and wonderful, and sparks off each other.

The one thing I didn't like was how cruel Miles could be sometimes. It honestly just seemed out of character for him, and the fact that Heloise accepted it, and him for it seemed to be just... not quite right.

Otherwise, this is a great historical romance read. Don't let the cover fool you, it's rich in history instead of fluff.
