Masked By Moonlight by Allie Pleiter - Love Inspired Historical #9 - Jun 08
This book is heading to my 2008 Top Ten list because I didn't want to put it down. I loved the old Zorro, Lone Ranger and Robin Hood shows and this rated right up there with them. This is the 3rd book I've read from this author and I love her sense of humour.
When I first heard about this book, I heard the hero, Matthew Covington referred to as a reluctant hero who becomes a masked crusader by accident. That intrigued me. How can someone don a mask and cape and yet not want to be a hero? Allie Pleiter has woven Matthew's reserve and charm into a very likeable hero that will have you aching for him to succeed whether it's in a seemingly impossible task in life or love.
Georgia Waterhouse, the heroine, is a writer living in a world when women were seen but not heard. So, she writes under a pen name. She is emotionally tied to San Fransico and can't even think about living anywhere else.
Matthew, an English gentleman, has responsibilities in England and must go back there soon.
Is Georgia and Matthew's love strong enough to survive uprooting from everyone and everything held familiar?
Affectionate (kissing and hand holding but nothing more)
Excellent - 5 stars (one to re-read; definitely a keeper)
