More About the Author

I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Writing mostly historical romances set in many of my favorite periods and themes: medieval, pirate, regency, Scottish. My books have won many awards from Romantic Times, including Best Historical of the Year, Best Swashbuckler of the Year, Best Medieval of the Year, Storyteller of the Year, and I have twice received Lifetime Achievement Awards. The Iron Rose won accolades from Publishers Weekly for being one of the seven best fiction books of the year. My novels have consistently appeared on USA Today bestseller lists. Nasty rumors of my retirement have been greatly exaggerated.

Beautiful Aubrey Blue dons a prim school teacher disguise and heads to Santa Fe in order to exact revenge on Maxwell Fleming, the man who killed her family years ago. Plainsman Christian McBride also has a score to settle with Fleming, and while sharing a stagecoach on the way to their mutual destination, the sparks fly. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The heat between Christian and Aubrey was instense, and the secret that Aubrey reveals at the end will blow you away.

Lovely Aubrey Blue disguises herself as a dowdy schoolteacher on her way to Santa Fe to exact revenge on Maxwell Fleming, the man who killed her family. This is not an easy task, since he's the town's richest citizen. On the way, she encounters handsome, embittered Christian McBride and his half-brother Sun Shadow. Christian also has a vendetta against Maxwell, since the man had him inprisoned for five years for a crime he didn't commit. This story was action-packed from the first page. I found myself wondering when Christian and the other supporting characters were going to see through Aubrey's disguise. The heat between Aubrey and Christian was intense, and I felt that I was right there with them. I really like Western romances, and this one had it all, guns blazing, saloons, gambling, you name it. Towards the end, Aubrey reveals the secret she's been carrying, it'll take you're breath away. I wish Marsha Canham would write a sequel or at least another Western romance.

I would tend to agree that this is not Marsha's best though I can't quite put my finger on why because it is still a very good story. I was almost convinced it was just my mood at the time.

There are a couple surprises along the way and, as usual, Marsha somehow gives us characters with hearts AND racing pulses. Maybe it is that the secondary characters are not quite as engaging as we have come to expect (you're spoiling us, Marsha).

Regardless, if you are a Marsha Canham fan, you will definitely want to read this story. If a newcomer to Ms. Canham's work, read her other books first and read this one later. Then again, maybe this one SHOULD be read first before sampling her other, even BETTER, stories.

This is my first novel by Marsha Canham and I did like her writing. I liked the concept of the book and thought it had a lot of potential, it just didn't quite live up to what I was hoping for though. I didn't think enough time was spent on just the H/h together building their relationship. They were together during the trip to NM, but there are so many other people around and so many distractions that I didn't feel a strong connection developing b/t Christian and Aubrey. There is quite a lot of action and while I expected some of that in a book like this, I was really hoping for more romance. At several points I found myself skimming through parts saying "Really? This indian attack is STILL going on??" Or, "Wow, another shoot-out?" The author did a good job of showing us the physical attraction between the H/h, but I wasn't 100% sure when they fell in love b/c Aubrey was constantly lying and hiding her feelings and true motives from the hero. And Christian never really knew anything about Aubrey other than he enjoyed having sex with her. There were a lot of bad guys, friends, helpers, relatives and it just felt like the story overtook the romance. Having said that, I will try other books by this author b/c I have a feeling she can do better than this.

Although this book was quite good, and very readable with fine characterization, it isn't Ms. Canham's best work. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed, "Under the Desert Moon", it's plot tension and interesting characters. I have no reservation recommending this novel to any fan of the romance novel!
