"3.5 stars" Blue Moon is a fairly good story with an interesting premise. My favorite character was Noah. He was an adorably introverted beta hero, reminding me a lot of modern-day geeks, with his shy, reclusive nature and his lack of social skills particularly with women. His status as an older male virgin, a rarity in romance novels, only served to solidify this stereotype. His awkwardness in the early chapters of the book was sweetly endearing, but I was somewhat disap...more

What a cute little story... She's kidnapped and sold to a man that only has plans to use her virgin body to please himself then once shes the perfect lover make her service others! gag! She escapes him and is injured in a swamp, and found by the sweetest man ever. :) Hes a half breed with a missing eye and a scar down his face, but hes also a stand up guy with a moral code; she is not used to a man not "using" her. He helps her mend and takes her home, hes in love and so is she but she doesnt fe...more
A decent read, though nothing super special. Noah is the noble, innocent hero who falls in love with Olivia, who has been held as a sexual prisoner by the book's villain. Although the villain, Darcy, is after Olivia, what really keeps Noah and Olivia apart is Olivia's guilt that she allowed herself to become a whore (basically that she physically enjoyed what Darcy did to her, even though she mentally resisted).

The book is set in an atypical time and place for historical romance. Therefore it h...more

Olivia was trying to find her family, after being kidnapped and sold into prostitution in New Orleans. Noah nurses her back to health and she begins to trust again. He agrees to help Olivia find her family. But when they find them, Olivia's past comes back to haunt them.

I thought this book started out really well and...more
This was Noah's story. Noah has moved from where he lived close to Hunter. He now lives in a tree house in a swap in Illinois. One night he hears a scream in is swamp. Think it is a bobcat he tries to ignore it, but something will not let him. Upon investigation, he finds a beautiful, dirty unconscious woman. He has no choice but to take her back to his tree house. When Olivia wakes up, she is truly frightened. Noah assumes it is because of his face but something tells him it is more than that....more
Entertaining historical romance with enough drama to keep me reading. Parts of it were very predictable, and I did not care for the way some story lines were wrapped up, but overall it was a fun read.
Christy Stewart
I'm giving this a good rating because it got a good bit of an emotional response out of me, but all in all the book is TOTALLY unsatisfying.

The book deals with some horrific situations and makes no bones about it, and I love that, but I'm a sucker for a happy ending and when a majority of characters didn't get what I felt they had coming to them I dodn't find it too happy.
Doranna Durgin
Loved this book--the writing is full of evocative atmosphere, the setting is clear and strong, and the story is wonderfully not-quite-unpredictable.
Gayle Mason
Really liked this one. Now I need to get the first book Just Once.
Dee Steverson
Didn't care for the civil war era setting
