In 1172 Oxford, an agent of the King's Justiciar, Hugh of Wexford, recruits scholar Phillipa de Paris to help him bring corrupt churchman Aldous Ewing to justice for treacherous activity against the crown. At one time Aldous wooed Phillipa, but failed to gain her affection.

Phillipa reluctantly agrees to help the crown even though she fears the dangerous Hugh. They pretend to be married and set off on their quest with Hugh trying to bed his partner and Phillipa internally struggling to reject his efforts. When Aldous sees the 'married' Phillipa, he invites her and her spouse to stay with him, expecting to finally bed the wench. As Phillipa uses her wit and her wiles to uncover a traitor, she and her 'spouse' fall in love, an emotion neither want nor desire.

THE SUN AND THE MOON is an enjoyable medieval romance starring two enchanting characters. The intrepid Phillipa is an anachronism as she succeeds in her scholarly pursuit. She and the mentally and physically scarred Hugh make a wonderful couple. The story line is fun especially when Hugh turns jealous as Phillipa flirts with the odious Aldous to get him to reveal his plot. Sub-genre fans know Patricia Ryan as a household name and her newest tale will elate her large horde of readers.

Loved the series. Your writing is very capturing. Couldn't stop until the series ended. I think Hugh and Phillipa got what the deserved.

This is the last book in this set and it did not dissapoint. This and Falcons fire were my favorites. I loved this book so much I could read it twice. Very romantic, inticing, and dramatic. I Highly recommend this book.

Great book. Author has several more medieval romances like this one also great reads. Oddly there are a spate of reviews from 02/13 which all seem to refer to an unrelated book.  What's that about?

SET IN 1172, I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. SO FAR I'VE ENJOYED ALL OF P. RYAN'S BOOKS I'VE READ. THIS ONE IS FULL OF PASSION, MYSTERY & SUSPENSE. IT DOES HAVE YOUR ATTENTION THROUGH OUT THE STORY.
