From Booklist

*Starred Review* If the Duke of Olympia thinks that his grandson, the Duke of Wallingford, would be willing to spend a year in the Italian countryside without the benefit of female companionship, he must be crazy. But when he hears about his grandson’s latest scandalous exploit with one of the many ladies of London willing to give him their favor, he immediately begins plotting a campaign to see his grandson married before the year is through. Suddenly, a year in Italy doesn’t sound like such a bad idea. Of course, Wallingford’s little philosophical sojourn at Castel sant’Agata doesn’t take into account the fact that he will be sharing his new abode with three Englishwomen, including Miss Abigail Harewood, who decides it is high time for her to take a lover and believes Wallingford is just the man for the job. With this deliciously romantic, wickedly witty confection linked to the splendidly entertaining A Lady Never Lies and A Gentleman Never Tells (both 2012), Gray makes one of the best trilogy debuts in years, proving she is a literary force to be reckoned with. Readers will shout, Bravissima! --John Charles

This is the last book of Gray's Affairs by Moonlight trilogy, and in it we see the pairing of Miss Abigail Harewood with Arthur Penhallow, the Duke of Wallingford. Although it can be read as a stand alone book, it's best to read the other two books in the series as the common events in each of the books are told from a different perspective, allowing a better understanding of what really transpired.

Abigail Harewood is a nonpareil, a young woman who strives to be unconventional. She does not do this by directly flaunting society, but chooses to engage in her own pursuits and interests. She bets on horse racing, become friends with men at pubs, and is a lover of classics. Unlike other young women, she does not want to get married for fear of losing her independence, but wishes to take a lover and experience passion. For this purpose, she picked the Duke of Wallingford to be her target once it becomes known they will be renting the same castle for a year. Wallingford, however, took a vow of chastity and tries his best to resist Abigail, only to surrender his heart and body to her.

The most wonderful aspect of this novel are the characters. There is so much depth in Wallingford that a mere description would not do him justice. He is the typical jaded libertine who has bedded hundreds of women without surrendering a bit of his heart. At his core, he is a sensitive and caring individual who is truly afraid of living up to his reputation for the rest of his life, not being able to be live without women and never finding more than a physical satisfaction with any of them. He sees Abigail with her innocence and angelic features as a temptation at first, but it is he who later grovels continuous at Abigail's feet, trying to get her to believe in his steadfastness.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I must confess to being a bit tired of the LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST theme to this trilogy, but this third entry gets 4 stars from me because of the intelligent, witty writing to be found here. Many romance authors write as if their books were intended for 16-year-olds and I do so enjoy the books with grown-up sentences and dialogue. In this respect Gray's up there with Courtney Milan, Cecilia Grant and Meredith Duran.

This is the third romantic pairing of the 6 characters of the trilogy and is the book that ties up most loose ends. The castle's curse will be lifted, the mysterious castle owner will be revealed and everybody should live HEA. All three books take place at the same time and in the same place (that castle in Italy), with the main focus each time on only one couple. Left to be paired romantically are Miss Abigail Harewood, younger sister of the heroine of Book 1 and cousin of the heroine of Book 2, and the Duke of Wallingford, nephew and friend of the hero of Book 1 and older brother of the hero of Book 2.

It's a cute romance with lots of humor, a bit of poignancy at times and some moving moments. Abigail is an independent-minded miss who wants to live life on her own terms and does not wish to marry. That does not mean she wishes to be a virgin forever, however. So she chooses Wallingford to be her very first lover. He's a known rake with quite the reputation with women. He should be able to make the experience a very memorable one.

Well, this is amusing because Wallingford is on that one-year mission to de-debauch himself, while Abigail wants to be debauched. **SPOILER** Another thing about their romantic relationship that I really enjoyed is the reality of their first time together.

The final book in the Juliana Gray's Italian castle series lacks the charm of her first novel and it is mostly due to the heroine. I found her to be a little too unrealistic.

Abigail Harewood is in Italy with her sister and cousin to escape London; or rather Abigail is following her sister who needs to leave London. Abigail is the younger sister of a Countess and she has decided to live a life very different than her older sister. Firstly, she has decided she will never marry and secondly she is resolute to take a lover. Abigail does not fit the bill of a Victorian lady. This is not an older woman but a young girl in her early twenties who acts much like a teenager but thinks she is very grown up.

Abigail decides the best way to know if someone will be a good lover is to engage in kissing them which she has tried on several servants. When her travelling party meets the Duke of Wallingford and his party in Italy, she tries her whiles on him and discovers he is such a good kisser that he must be her first bed partner.

Wallingford is unhappy that he is attracted to Abigail but believes he will never see her and her bossy sister again. Not so because they are all renting the same castle. Wallingford is trying to be as chaste as a monk for the next year but Abigail is a walking temptation, she flirts shamelessly and lets him know she plans on having him as a lover.

Abigail is bold and what was surprising is her personality seems so different in this book compared to the first novel in this series where it appears that she does not like the Duke. Here she is actively pursuing him.

Abigail is not one to listen to the advice of others.
