Embracing the Buchanan's
This is the third book I've read by Mr. Jordan. And he is indeed a fine romance writer. I enjoy each novel as it gives a little more knowledge about the Buchanan Family and their circle of friends. This novel had action, mystery, intrigue, and romance. It wasn't my favorite of the three, 'One Gentle Knight', a whole different series from Jordan, is my favorite, however 'Embracing the Moonlight' was still an enjoyable read. And I definitely look forward to reading more about the rest of the Buchanan Brothers. Although I can't say that the romance between Mason and Lianne moved me as much as the romance between Taurean and Alana in 'Capture the Sunrise', the story still had a heated intensity due to the build up of Mason and Lianne's budding relationship. And not to mention the secondary romance between Mason's mother, Carolyn and her younger lover Garth. The beautiful scenery of the island of Barbados once again aided in the appeal of this mysterious romantic tale. I can't wait to read Daniel and Patrick's story.Was this review helpful?

While recovering in the hospital from shots that nearly killed him, forty years old Bureau Agent Mason Sinclair feels survivor guilt as his partner for over a decade died in the case that went ugly. He knows his career is over as he is just beginning to relearn to walk. His jet setting mom fifty-six years old Carolyn comes to see her offspring to tell him the truth. His biological dad is not the late loving John, but instead his father is Joshua Buchanan who just died and that Mason has three half-brothers. Mason decides to visit his paternal family on Barbados once he is fully mobile on his own feet. --- Several months later as Mason begins plans to meet his siblings, Lianne Thomas is assigned to go undercover as a nanny to the son of Jason Clarkson, the star witness in the murder of Philip McMaster. Her job is to keep Jason safe so he can testify against the powerful Cordoni. When Mason and Lianne meet, sparks fly. However, as they fall in love in the Caribbean, she knows the mission comes first while he sees signs of a professional that make him wonder who she really is. --- The lead couple is a fabulous pairing as readers will like both these law enforcement officials while realizing right away they are soulmates. The setting is terrific as Wayne Jordan brings out the flavor beyond the tourist section of Barbados so that the audience obtains a real taste of the island. Though there is too many subplots to keep track of (several of which could easily be the basis for future novels), EMBRACING THE MOONLIGHT is a superb contemporary romantic suspense that sub-genre fans will enjoy and like not subtle Harriet want more Barbados tales. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
