This is a great book. The plot is good and there is plenty of romance. There is a very warm and light story in "Sunlight" with a kind and sweet hero and there is a darker more serious story in "Moonlight" which deals with sadness and loneliness. Both stories are toching and romantic. If you don`t cry at the end of part 1 in "Moonlight" you most have a heart of stone because that is such a bittersweet scene.

Sunlight is the first book in the anthology, Moonlight is the second. If you like Rebecca Flanders or other authors that do contemporary sci-fis with aliens you'll love Sunlight. The heroine is a soft-hearted author who meets the hero in an abandonned house. He has crash landed on Earth and is in danger from US gov't officials. He is lonely and calls her to him telepathicly, and they become involved. Great love story. The second book starts in ancient Greece with the story of a young boy raised as a sacrifice to the Gods. When he is left at the temple the "Goddess" decides not to kill him and turns him into a vampire then abandons him. He destroys the temple and trys to visits his love but she doesn't accept him in his changed state. He watchs her grow old and die then leaves his homeland to wander the earth. The story picks up again in present day California where he is an antiques merchant. A young woman falls in love with him and he decides to allow himself to try love again. (This second book would have been better if the author had called upon more of her knowledge of history - Madeline Baker [another pen name] usually great historical writer!)

This book surprised and delighted me. This is my very first time reading a novel by Amanda Ashley. "Sunlight, Moonlight" is absolutely excellent mind candy! This enjoyable book has two very different stories within it's cover written by this very talented author. They are both wonderfully entertaining reads! Once I started reading the first story called "Sunlight" I couldn't lay it down. I was sucked into it's story line and I didn't come up for air until I was done!

Anyone remember the film "Starman"? "Sunlight" appears to be Amanda Ashley's fanciful version of that story in director John Carpenter's 1984 science fiction film "Starman" starring Jeff Bridges. She did a good job with her version. I like "Sunlight" better than Starman's story line because she made it much more romantic, realistic and a whole lot more fun. "Sunlight" is an enthralling nail biter tale about a humanoid alien man from planet Xanthia who has accidentally crash landed on Earth near an abandon old mansion on the outskirts of Los Angeles, California. The alien (Micah, short for Zermicazyne) who was hurt during the crash landing, steels into the mansion to recover and hide from the humans he knows will surely try to find him and do all types of unsavory things to him if caught. His beacon to call his people is not working and he fears for his life.

Meanwhile...beautiful earthling Lainey St. John, just happens to be doing photographic research for a book she's writing and is right outside this same mansion were Micah is hiding out. She innocently takes a picture of his blue glowing outline in one of the mansions windows late one evening. Oh boy, do things start heating up in this story when Lainey brazenly enters this creepy old house the next day to find out what it was she thought she saw in that window.

Both stories were really romantic and wonderful...Now before you go running for the hills OR digging for your Trekkie uniform hold that thought! Sunlight is about a being from another planet and you will not have to brush up on your klingon to enjoy this story.(Sorry Star Trek fans I don't know the correct spellings no disrespect intended)
Sunlight very romantic but several elements reminded me of the movie Starman. I did feel like I was kept on edge hoping the couple could some how get together...Sorry no spoilers here! I liked this book better than the movie and I liked the movie. I can usually tell what is going to happen about 3/4 of the book. Not here I was crossing my fingers the whole time.
Moonlight...Starts out so sad and heart breaking I have to admit I actually had to cry. To never experience any love,compassion, or tenderness in your life...kept in a cage like an animal until you are 24yrs...Then to be sacrificed to a goddess after ensuring your bloodline is continued. Moon light is a book that takes the reader into the darkest sorrow and lonelness then soar in the heights of love and light.
These books were romance books and there are some Low level love scenes. I personally prefer a little more zip to my love scenes (Victoria Dahl,kresly cole,Aiken,) BUT Even with that being said I loved this book. This appears to be an underDISCOVERED writer whom I intend on promoting to my friends and family. I went directly to the books store today and purchase 3 more. I hope you take a chance and give her a shot.

cause it's definitely not a keeper.

Of the two stories - sunlight and moonlight - moonlight is the better.

Sunlight is your "i fell in love with a space alien" story. Trite, too fake religious, simplistic, and really not fun enough to excuse it.

Moonlight is a vampire story, and is a bit better. If the romance had been left out, it would have actually been good. All this effort is spent telling the story of the vampire - his origins, his character - then it's all blown to crap in a silly little tryst that is not at all believable.

not really worth the few hours I spent on it.

More About the Author

I write paranormal romances for Zebra Books, and I love it. Most of my books are about vampires because, I admit, I'm fascinated by them. I also admit I don't like most vampire movies. I'm not really into blood and gore in living color on the screen, although I do love the movie, Dracula, starring Frank Langella. I just close my eyes from time to time.

I also write historical romances as Madeline Baker.
