Moonlight On My MindBy Jennifer McQuistonPublisher: Avon (Harper Collins)Release Date: March 25, 2014Genre: Historical RomanceLength: 384 PagesISBN: 978-0-062231-34-5ASIN: B00DB369D0About the book:To ruin a man’s life once takes a regrettable mistake. To do so twice takes a woman like Julianne Baxter.
Eleven months ago, Julianne’s statement to the authorities wrongly implicated Patrick, the new Earl of Haversham, in his older brother’s death. The chit is as much trouble as her red hair suggests, and just as captivating. Now she has impetuously tracked him to the wilds of Scotland, insisting that he return home to face a murder charge and save his family from ruin. A clandestine wedding may be the only way to save her reputation—and his neck from the hangman’s noose.
Julianne has no objection to the match. More and more she’s convinced of Patrick’s innocence, though when it comes to igniting her passions, the man is all too guilty. And if they can only clear his name, a marriage made in haste could bring about the most extraordinary pleasure…
That flash of a green waistcoat caught her eye again, circling her focus back around to the real purpose of this dance. “Tell me about your brother, Mr. Channing. Does he not require a good night’s sleep as well?”
Her partner’s brown eyes narrowed. “Are you always so forward, Miss Baxter?”
“Are you always so tired?” She arched a single brow, a move she had perfected in front of a mirror by the age of ten. When properly employed, it usually sent its recipients scuttling for the safety of other company, or, depending on the age and fortitude of the adversary in question, their mothers.
Mr. Channing did none of those things.
“I can hold my own in most athletic endeavors.” His lips held the promise of a wicked slant should they ever be fully unleashed, but he seemed to keep his expressions on a tight tether. “But I do find my aim improved by a solid night’s sleep.”
“I thought we were going to leave off with the discussion of rifles and the like.”
