    Exciting inspirational treasure

    When archaeologist Dr. Jeanne Madison plans her 'Blue Moon' expedition to look for the Luna Azul, and early 18th century Spanish galleon that sunk off the coast of Mexico, she has no choice but to hire the only captain her project can afford, Gabriel Avery. Her former professor and mentor, Dr. Remy Primston, accompanies her to Cancun to meet the captain of a charter fishing boat. The handsome, dark captain who sports a British accent is far from the crusty image she had. Far worse, he reminds her of a pirate and his blue eyes make Jeanne nervous. Worse, one look at his rusty ship, the 'Fallen Angel', makes Jeanne wonder if it can even hold any artifacts they might find. ...... Jeanne returns to Cancun a few months later to start the expedition, along with students from Texas A&M University and a former classmate of Jeanne's who is now a photographer who will film their discovery, if any, for National Geographic. Accompanying Gabe on the expedition is his deck hand, Manolo, and Gabe's lab, Nemo. When Gabe's nemesis, Captain Marshall Arnauld of the 'Prospect', suddenly shows up, Gabe fears Marshall will try to steal any discovery, just as he had stolen the rights to salvage a ship Gabe himself found several years earlier. ...... Excitement abounds when the first sign of the Luna Azul's contents are found near a coral reef, but it's nothing compared to the excitement that Gabe stirs within Jeanne when they share dinner, or when Gabe reveals his concern when she comes down with a fever. Then strange things begin to happen after their discovery: Gabe's ship suddenly develops problems, and a strange man keeps watching Jeanne and Gabe when they're on shore. And the excitement is only beginning¿ ...... Linda Windsor's BLUE MOON is an exciting novel filled with adventure and intrigue, deception and suspense. It is also a story of love, set in the exotic seas of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. BLUE MOON is a true treasure for any reader who loves a great romance, and one I highly recommend.

    A light and sunny romance. A dab of suspense.

    Dr. Jeanne Madison has secured limited funding to find and excavate the 'Luna Azul' (translation: Blue Moon). It is a treasure-laden eighteenth century caravel off the Yucatan coast (Mexico). Along with Jeanne is the snobbish Dr. Remington 'Remy' Primston who is documenting all for his future book, a few college students, and Ann Mills who is not only Jeanne's college classmate, but also a photographer with World Geographic magazine. ...................... The tight budget forces Jeanne to hire the handsome Captain Gabriel 'Gave' Avery. His boat may look ready to fall apart at any moment, but Jeanne knows that God will help her in her quest. Besides, Gave is the only skipper around that will agree to getting part of any treasure that they may find instead of a huge daily fee. Gabe and Jeanne are very attracted to each other, but Jeanne knows that a relationship between them is hopeless unless God helps Gabe see His light. ......................... In the meantime, the American playboy Marshall Arnauld smells treasure. He has already stolen sunken site rights from others in the past, including from Gabe, and now he is after Jeanne's find. ....................... **** This is the third in the Moonstruck series. The cover says it is the 'new romantic comedy', however, I found very little comedy. Instead, I recommend this one as a Christian Modern Contemporary type of romance. A sweet read with lots of faith and a dab of suspense. Author Linda Windsor proves that you do not need a lot of steamy bedroom scenes and crude language to make a wonderful story. ****

    Blue Moon

    'Okay, she'd felt tingles of attraction to the opposite sex before, but they were mere whispers compared to the I'm-definitely-a-woman shouts ringing from sense to sense like a pinball machine on full tilt.... Now, all she had to do was hang on to her outrage for long enough to get inside before she had another pinball attack....' Dr. Jeanne Madison, a marine archaeologist, hires Captain Gabriel Avery to help her salvage Spanish treasure aboard the sunken Luna Azul-or Blue Moon, off the coast of Cancun, with its tropical ambience, fiestas, siestas and great food. Aboard the Fallen Angel, they face problems with weather and watchers-as in, spies and saboteurs. But Jeanne and Gabe--another brand of fallen angel--along with his affectionate Lab, Nemo, stay with the search. But whether or not they find doubloons and ducats, the unexpected treasures they find in each other and in God are worth far more. Blue Moon is the third in the Moonstruck series of contemporary romantic comedy/suspense by Linda Windsor. Readers who love and expect Windsor's witty way with words will find a treasure trove of their own, with humor coming much more often than once in a...Blue Moon.

    enjoyable inspirational thriller

    Twenty-six years old archeologist Dr. Jeanne Madison believes she knows where the eighteenth century Spanish galleon Luna Azul sunk off the Mexican coast during a storm. With her mentor Dr. Remy Primston they hire marine biologist Captain Gabe Avery to take the two marine archeologists to the locale. Though Gabe has strong references including those of her overly protective brothers, Jeanne has doubts that he knows what he is doing though she admits to herself he is quite a hunk. --- Gabe has more doubts than Jeanne about the success of this sea venture. He has been betrayed before from so called friends plus the Pollyanna believer in God team leader looks too young to be a PH.D though he admits to himself he finds her fascinating and pretty. As they sail, Gabe realizes he wants her and not just for a sea cruise fling. He cannot abide her so called mentor who he feels holds her back. However, even worse in his eyes is her naive attitude towards a charming snake he once called pal Gabe knows the rat is her rival who will steal the claim and the fame unless he and his crew give 200 % to the woman who inspires them to be more than they ever have been before. --- The third Moonstruck tale (see FIESTA MOON and PAPER MOON) is an enjoyable inspirational tale starring an idealist and a cynic falling in love while on a high seas adventure. The story line is action-packed yet the key cast makes for a fun time as readers will appreciate the antics and competition between the three men now in Jeanne¿s life. As always Linda Windsor provides a strong thriller with interesting characters enhanced by an impervious belief in God. --- Harriet Klausner
