*from the publisher
This is my second book by author Laurie McBain the first one being, Devils Desires being the first, and I have to say that I enjoyed Moonstruck Madness immensely. There is something so alluring about the way she writes that makes the reader set up an take notice. It may be due to the fact that the book was originally published in 1977, and that adds a different style of writing. I also loved the characters in this book and the they played out, as well as the plots. It also offered a few twists and turns along the way. A very lovely little romance that you should defiantly check out!
***I just wanted to throw in that this book, while it is a romance, deals with the fallout after the Jacobite Rising of 1745. The opening scene displays the battle of Culloden Moor, and is brilliantly created.
My Thoughts about the cover:
The cover is striking, it has that pick me up and read me quality.
