Overview

Secrets, scandal, and passion…

Selina Rosewall had given up on love, but while helping her brother further his merchant fleet business, she meets Sir James Mitchell, Lord of Penventen. Their attraction is mutual, but what James wants from the relationship goes further—much further—than Selina could have expected. And she learns that in the world of the Ton, scandal and deceit are commonplace.

For Sir James Mitchell, Lord of Penventen, it’s hard to say which is more dangerous: being a spy or being considered husband material by the Ladies of the Ton. With political machinations threatening to draw England into the violent wake of the French Revolution, the last thing James expected was to fall in love with Selina Rosewall, daughter of an untitled seafaring family. But when James’ investigation stirs up a hornet’s nest, can he protect Selena from danger that threatens her very life?

    Moonstone Obsession is a gem. Historical is not my go-to romance

    Moonstone Obsession is a gem. Historical is not my go-to romance category but I went on a historical streak recently. This book rose to the top as one of my favorites. It is well written, engaging, and filled with historical details that made me feel like I learned a bit too.

    Selina is a likable heroine. She has notions of romance but is sensible enough to know that she may end up a spinster. She neither accepts nor rejects matrimony at face value, and I enjoyed a heroine with such a pragmatic view in a historical. As the intrigue heightens in relation to the French Revolution and its impact on England, we also see that she is incredibly brave.

    James is a worthy hero. He has elements of the rogue but also a deep sense of honor. His connection with Selina is believable and a pleasure to read. 

    The secondary cast of characters are well drawn and added depth to the story. The descriptions are lush. The countryside almost felt like its own character in a way. For the most part I enjoyed the descriptions but they could be a tad excessive at times. The last quarter of the book became heavily political and dragged for me as it caused the story to stop feeling like a romance. That is the only reason I give this book a 4.5 out of 5.

    I haven¿t honestly read much historical romance, so this story w

    I haven’t honestly read much historical romance, so this story was a bit of a diversion from my usual reading choice, but I’m really glad I took the opportunity and gave this one a chance. This impeccably written tale has so much going for it—yes, there is the romance aspect. James and Selina are a couple you want to root for. Selina’s character in particular resonated with me. She’s a strong, intelligent woman who almost seems ahead of her time, but I connected with her and genuinely wanted for her to find happiness. James comes across as a bit of an ass on first impression. His attraction and interest in Selina, however, are genuine and you can’t help but like him. 
    Then comes the plot full of mystery, deceit and intrigue that is woven into this love story and continues after James and Selina begin their lives together. While the romance aspect is sweet and endearing, this is what really set this story apart for me. Over the course of the book, a complicated plot unfolds, putting Selina and those she loves in danger, and I enjoyed seeing the active role both she and James take in trying to solve it. 
    I think the author did a fantastic job capturing this time period and all the little details about society and social status. She’s also got a rich cast of supporting characters that help bring it to life. Her writing style is very accessible and easy to read, while at the same time she has successfully portrayed this extravagant lifestyle in a way that is very believable. Definitely recommended!
