The Moon and the Stars

Overview

Caroline Richmond started running on her wedding day—the same day her husband died. Her malicious brother-in-law had kept his vow to make her a widow, but she knew he wouldn’t stop at that, and her solitary life was filled with fear of him always one step behind her. She thought she’d found a shred of peace in Texas, and at least a glimmer of the life she deserved. But when a mysterious bounty hunter came to town, she knew the wrath in his amber eyes was meant only for her. He found a way to be everywhere she ...

Overview

Caroline Richmond started running on her wedding day—the same day her husband died. Her malicious brother-in-law had kept his vow to make her a widow, but she knew he wouldn’t stop at that, and her solitary life was filled with fear of him always one step behind her. She thought she’d found a shred of peace in Texas, and at least a glimmer of the life she deserved. But when a mysterious bounty hunter came to town, she knew the wrath in his amber eyes was meant only for her. He found a way to be everywhere she was, speaking words with double meaning in his smooth French accent and making her nerves hum in a way she thought she’d conquered.

Wade Renault came out of retirement for one reason: to see a deceptive murderess brought to justice. But when he met the woman pictured in the tintype he’d carried for months, he sensed more panic than treachery. She lived too simply, she seemed too honest and scared. Someone had deceived him, but he would wait it out and get her right where he wanted her, beneath...The Moon and the Stars.

    Books like this is the reason I enjoy reading

    I have read Constance for years and she never disappoints. Wade is the man you would like to be stranded on a desert island with, and he heorine, is spunky and can take care of herself. There is a dark side to this romance, a man named, Brace--and he wants the heroine dead. This was one of my favorite Constance O'Banyon books. I'd like to read more about these characters.

    2.5 stars

    To escape her evil brother in law who turned her into a widow on her wedding day, Caroline flees her hometown to reinvent herself out west. Her life is fairly peaceful for several years until Wade Renault, a French bounty hunter shows up to take her home to face murder charges. Her pleas and whines fall on deaf ears for the most part, but gradually, they erode his hard heart until by the time she falls deathly ill, he's willing to consider that Caroline might be innocent. Wade is even willing to marry her to provide her with safety and adopt a little boy they meet in their journey. However, the evil man who hired him is not willing to let the matter drop and comes to take care of the matter himself. ...................... Though the book sports a lovely title and cover, there's just a lack of logic that weakens the overall effect. Why did Caroline go with Wade, and what made them fall in love is a mystery. The evil brother in law is more of a stock cardboard type villian than a complex character. There is a sweetness, however, that is a redemptive point to the novel. ...........Reviewed by Amanda Killgore, Freelance Reviewer.

    terrific nineteenth century American romantic suspense thriller

    On her wedding day in Charleston, Caroline Duncan became a widow when she believes her stepbrother-in-law Brace arranged her husband Michael¿s murder. Knowing that Brace will take her, Caroline flees, hiding until she surfaces in 1871 using the surname Richmond in San Sebastian, Texas until bounty hunter Wade Renault arrives to escort her home to face a murder rap. As he takes her back with him, Caroline swears she is innocent at first Wade¿s cynicism from his years of hunting criminals leaves him disbelieving her, but soon he begins to see holes in his client Brace¿s story. Still he has doubts as he wonders if he just wants Caroline to be innocent because he is falling in love with her. Instead of taking her to Brace, Wade hides Caroline in his Louisiana home thinking that if he married her she would be safe. However, Brace finds them and abducts Wade¿s adopted son Jonathan, leaving it up to courageous Caroline to confront her murdering nemesis. --- This is a terrific nineteenth century American romantic suspense thriller starring two caring likable individuals. Readers will admire Caroline who tosses her lifestyle away to elude her murdering brother-in-law. Wade is a perfect counterpart starting off with not only distrusting his prisoner but assuming she probably killed her husband. He soon regrets his pre-opinion as he sees how kind and caring she is. Though Brace is too evil to matter except as a threat, historical romance readers will enjoy Constant O¿Banyon¿s exciting tale. --- Harriet Klausner
