    exciting historical romance

    In 1895, Nicole Cuvier finds out that someone murdered her husband. She also learns that he was a bigamist with three wives of which she was number two and legally entitled to nothing from his estate. She owns Rosewood, a failing sugarcane plantation, and desperately needs a spouse so her unborn child will not be horrifyingly labeled illegitimate. From the day he was born, Maxim Viel received one message that he lives only to recover his ancestral home Rosewood regardless of personal cost. However, the current owner, Nicole, refuses to sell the place. Max disguises himself as a drifter in order to find a way to force Nicole into selling. She likes him so she asks Max to marry her so her unborn has a name. She will pay him with half the harvest before he drifts on. At any cost includes the price of bachelorhood so Max agrees to wed Nicole, but will never divorce her as he has completed his life¿s quest. However, his quest soon changes as he now wants his wife¿s heart. He loves Nicole, but fears once he reveals his perfidy she will loath him. Though there are unnecessary subplots that add intrigue such as the arrival of his out of wedlock son, THE PRICE OF MOONLIGHT is an exciting historical romance. Readers will relish the tale because of the lead couple, each with a past and an obsession until love threatens everything they cherished. This Cuvier widow sequel is a strong stand alone novel that will send the audience seeking the previous book (see SUNLIGHT ON JOSEPHINE STREET) and anxiously awaiting Layla¿s story. Harriet Klausner

    You will love this one.

    Nicole Rosseau Cuvier traveled to New Orleans to tell her husband, Jean, of their pending baby only to find out he had been murdered! Worse, Nicole learned she was not the ONLY widow of Jean! Since the law could not recognize Nicole as Jean's widow (being the second of three simultaneous wives), she had only a failing sugarcane plantation and her unborn child to her name. To keep her child from being tagged as illegitimate, she needed to wed - FAST! But first, she would put Rosewood into her friend's name to keep it safe. <BR><BR> Maxim Viel had one thing drilled into his head since childhood. That was, it was his duty to get back his ancestral home called Rosewood at any cost. However, the owner, Nicole Cuvier, would not sell. He went in person, hoping to scope her out for any weaknesses he could exploit. Thinking him a kind-hearted drifter, she offered him a deal. If he would marry her, give her baby a name, and then disappear, he would receive half the crop harvested. He jumped at the offer! As husband, the land became his. He had no intention of divorcing her and giving Rosewood back. <BR><BR> **** This is the main plot of this novel. The author added in some wonderful touches to make their lives even rougher. For example, Max has a son by another woman. The son leaves his loose mother to be with Max, who had not yet told Nicole even half the truth. <BR><BR> Like the first book, it takes off in Jean's hotel room. Only Nicole is followed from there, however, so readers do not have to of read the previous book to understand anything at all. Each book is a different Cuvier widow story. The third widow, Layla, was only mentioned when Nicole passed some evidence over to Layla's lawyer. That is a small detail that I am sure will show up in Layla's upcoming story. <BR><BR> I have no doubt you will love this story! Sylvia McDaniel has proven herself an extremely talented author! **** </p><BR>
