Delightful eighteenth century romance
In 1747 London, Massachusetts shipmaster Alexander Fairbourne hates the rules of engagement that gentlemen must follow when mingling among the aristocracy. However, he puts up with it to a point for the sake of his sister, Diana, who plans to take the city by storm and make a suitable marriage. Meanwhile, while walking together, an elderly woman accosts the pair and gives Diana a kitten that allegedly will find her true love for her. <P>Alexander holds the kitten when he meets Cora MacGillivray. She insists the kitten is hers and takes off with it. To his surprise, Alexander is very attracted to the enigmatic Cora. In turn, she wonders if he is the one to save her and bring happiness back into her life. <P> Miranda Jarrett¿s eighteenth century romances are always a delight due to the strong charcaters and the feel of a bygone era. Her latest tale, STARLIGHT, is another winner for sub-genre fans. Alexander and Cora are an enchanting couple struggling with a seemingly forbidden yet desirable attraction. The story line is fun and filled with non-stop action as expected from a Ms. Jarrett novel. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
