"A fascinating storyline"
In 1881 New York, jewel thief Lady Moonlight holds up
railroad owner Rafe Belloch. However, sensing his anger,
the felon makes her victim strip so he cannot follow her.
An outraged Rafe vows to uncover the secrets of this blue-
eyed thief. If anyone can find out who Lady Moonlight is
it is Rafe, whose obsession to escape the slums has made
him a powerfully rich mogul.
Two years later, Rafe meets Mystere Rillieux in one of
the events hosted by an icon of the New York Four Hundred.
They are immediately attracted to one another though Rafe
still remains haunted by Lady Blue Eyes. As they fall in
love, Mystere wonders if she should inform her beloved
about her career as the mysterious jewel thief Lady
The cast is fully developed and quite gregarious
especially Mystere and Rafe. The plot is excitingly filled
with romance between the lead couple and action especially
when Lady Moonlight works her trade. However, MOONLIGHT
BECOMES HER belongs to 1880s New York that picturesquely
comes alive whether the scene takes place amidst the
environs of the Lady Astor-Vanderbilt crowd or the teeming
slums. What readers obtain is an incredible historical
romance that fans of historical novels and obviously
romance readers will appreciate and turn Meagan McKinney
into an author of first choice.
