I was a little less excited about reading ACROSS A STARLIT SEA because of how melodramatic and campy its prequel, UPON A MOON-DARK MOOR was. ACROSS takes place with the next generation of the last set of characters. Laura, the narrator of ACROSS, is the daughter of Wellesley, Maggie's half-brother.

The convoluted family tree can be a bit difficult to follow, but by the end of the story (and with the help of the family tree in the beginning o

Across a Starlit Sea was a tempestuous romance written by Rebecca Brandewyne (one of my favorite historical authors, who unfortunately has stopped writing). This was a sequel to Upon a Moon-Dark Moor and both books had lovely covers painted by Elaine Duillo, as did most of Brandewyne's novels.

The Cornish coast setting made for a dark, gothic feel to this historical romance. I enjoyed the first-person-narrative in both books as the heroines told their life stories from youth, to their first love

These Cornwall Gothics are old books (don't let the September 1999 re-release date on Amazon fool you), very un-PC, and written in first person, but the heroes are just yummy. If you like your heroes gentle and you're looking for humor, these books are not for you, but whenever I want a bit of sturm and drang, I reread both, since one follows the other.

I was expecting a trashy romance, but it was far from (you'd never guess from the cover!). It was depressing and tragic and I give it five stars for being completely unconventional and unpredictable.

Shelves: romance-gothic
Laura ist eine alberne Trine, die wankelmütig zwischen ihren Cousins Nicholas und Jarret pendelt und alle drei spielen falsch. Liebe, Leidenschaft, Intrigen... Die Handlung (Ich nutze diesen Begriff im weitesten Sinne.) ist nicht in die sehr beliebte Ritterzeit gelegt, sondern spielt sich 18irgendwas im malerischen Cornwall ab. Um die Historie ein bißchen einzuflechten, gibt's ab und zu Einschübe über gesellschaftliche Ereignisse, die wirken wie aus einem Geschichtsbuch abgeschrieben. Across a s ...more

Más que un triángulo pasional, es la historia de la madurez (a las malas)de Laura. Por supuesto, Nick (sobre todo)y Jared contribuyen a ello.
Al principio, debido a lo comentado antes, la protagonista parece un poco inaguantable. Incluso Jared, pese a no ser tan machista como en otros libros de la autora, consigue al final redimirse con una demostración de amor sincero.

Aburrido al principio (ya que parece más novela sentimental que romántica), pero a mitad del libro, ya coge el ritmo idóneo para

I did rather enjoy reading this novel. Laura is unwilling to wed Jarrett Chandler, whom her father bethrothed her to before she was born. She determinedly fights him, even though he is a hot-tempered male that usual gets his way. In the end, they both fall in love with each other, despite their stormy beginnings.

Le style de Mme Brandewyne est toujours aussi excellent mais je n'ai pas du tout accroché au caractère de l'héroïne et du héros. Bien que cela soit une suite, on peut très bien lire ce tome en n'ayant pas lu le tome précédent.
