Lady Charlotte Stanton was officially on the shelf. Her first offer to be a chaperone had sealed her fate at the advanced age of eight-and-twenty. Yet, one magical evening a mysterious gentleman took pity on her and danced with her clandestinely under the stars. He refused to tell her who he was—other than unsuitable. It has ruined her peaceful existence as an aging spinster.
Sir David Douglas, known to many as Captain Deuce the infamous smuggler, regardless of having changed his ways and made his fortune away in the Indies. His past was destined to follow him forever. Despite helping bring down a high level smuggling ring, the King wants him to do more to earn his pardon. Reluctantly, he is forced back into the dark trade of smuggling once again.
As Sir David struggles to gain his freedom, Lady Charlotte tries to unravel his mystery and help him. But will she find her happily ever after or will she be caught up in the sins of his past?
I have to admit that I stayed up until 6am reading this book. I liked the characters, the plot and the adventure throughout the story. I also loved seeing characters from some past books.
Sometimes I find it hard to like a character when they appeared negatively in a previous book. However, David seemed to be truly repentant and trying his best to be a better person. He now believes he is not good enough due to his past. Due to her looks, Charlotte also believes that she is not good enough.
I do wish that Charlotte and David would have had a little more interaction together and got to know each other better.
The family is this book is hilarious. I love that they always seem to travel in a pack.
I rate Moon and Stars 5 stars and I highly recommend it.
