STORY-LINE LOVE IN THE MOONLIGHT:  THE DEVIL’S BOOK BY ISABELLA THORNE:

Miss Ruby Barnet, maid at Hobson Reach, is in love with Thomas Putnam.  Putnam’s a footmen at Hobson Reach;  they hope to marry in the future.  They steal moments for conversations at very opportunity;  hoping Missus McTavish, head housekeeper, does not catch them.  Saving as much as they can, they hope to buy a small house and piece of land.

Dusting in the Earls’ library Ruby spies a beautiful open book on the Earl’s desk;  written in a mysterious language which seems to move.  This strange hypnotic book fascinates Ruby;  it seems to call to her.   She’s caught holding the book by the Earl. He’s amazed she’s sitting in his chair holding the book.  The Earl believes she could be the one to lift the book‘s curse on his family;  she’s the only one who has ever touched it with bare hands.  He tells Ruby the book‘s evil.  He has Ruby wrap the book in layers of brown paper;  telling her to send it to his solicitor.  Believing he will die soon, he ask Ruby to promise she will burn the book after his death.  So begins a mystery which will enfold Putnam, Ruby, the Earl’s pregnant wife, and the Earl’s brother.

What hold and curse does this book have on the Earl of Bain’s family?  Will Ruby burn the book as she promised?  My Regency romance book reviews of Love In the Moonlight: The Devil’s Book follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Author Isabella Thorne created a tale of curses, an evil book, romance, and family dynamics.  I found Ruby a strong character with moral fiber.  Determined to carry out the Earl’s wishes, she’s willing to lose what she wants most.  The family dynamics included in this tale show jealousy, greed, and the willingness to do anything to process this evil book.

STORY-LINE THE BARON IN BATH BY ISABELLA THORNE:

The Baron In Bath, a Regency romance, features Julie Bellevue and Godwin Gruger, Baron of Fawkland.  Julie’s an absolute horror at the society whirl.  She’s out spoken, never says the correct thing, blurts out what’s on her mind, and she’s tall as an amazon, as well as, awkward and insecure.  Tales, rumors, and gossip, persist and never died of her parentage; increasing her insecurities.

After her father’s death, Julie finds he’s betrothed her to Godwin Gruger, Baron of Fawkland.  Gossips say he’s a rake and produced bastards numbering from one to twenty-five, depending on who recounting the tale;  the gossip flies across society and the ton endlessly.  The terms of her inheritance, tied to marrying Godwin, breaks her heart;  she’ll lose her beloved home in Bath if the marriage does not take place.

Julie and her sister, Jane, travel to Bath to meet her future intended; who’s the brother of her childhood confident and friend Cedric.  In a flurry of parties, dances, and social events, Julie finds she still does not fit in with the idea of the Regency woman; she’s out spoken, far from graceful, an amazon in a jungle of beautiful petite ladies, and insecure.  Julie finds herself torn between two battling brothers.  Her friend from the past or Godwin, her father’s  choice of husband, into whose hands will Julie decide to place her future?  Or will she surprise everyone and choose another gentleman?  My Regency romance book reviews of The Baron In Bath follows.
