"Under Eastern Stars" is a historical romance set in 1799 in India. It's the second book in the series. It picked up exactly where the author left off in the previous novel. To follow what's going on, you need to read "Silk" first.

Unlike the first book, this read like a romance novel: physical admiration, inexplicable attraction, constant rescues of the heroine, etc. But the hero realized he wasn't a good match for Coral. I agree with his choice for her perfect match, yet that character played

Book 2 in one of my favorite series. Sometimes the second book is a let-down after an exciting beginning, but not so in this case! I found this middle book to be just as enjoyable as the first one. It continues the story in an engaging way that doesn't feel like it is just a stepping stone to the final book. I have read this book many times and plan to read it again in the future.

I enjoyed this book but it wasn't spectacular. I picked this book up secondhand not realizing that it was the second in a series. I've never read the first but I have read the third. The plot is fast and confusing. The characters are well developed. There's not much else to say about this book.
So at first i just kept getting bored the end saved this book for me. Spoiler!!!!!!!!!!! THEY FINNALY KISSED!!!!!! END OF SPOILER!!! i got confused as to whom was whom but interesting i'm excited to read the final one
Liked it. Can't wait to read the 3rd and final book in this series.
GET NEXT ONE! Leaves you hanging, exciting, suspenseful
The sequel to a book I absolutely loved when I was younger.
Loved it even more than the first. So obsessed.

“She gave a short laugh to throw him off track. "It so happens I am a trifle more sophisticated than that. I hardly go about mooning and cultivating romantic notions of heroic knights sweeping me away to unknown isles aboard stolen ships."
He smiled. "A knight rode a horse, my dear; he was not a sea captain.”
