About the Author
Sherry Thomas burst onto the scene with PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTS, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2008. Her sophomore book, DELICIOUS, is a Library Journal Best Romance of 2008. Her next two books, NOT QUITE A HUSBAND and HIS AT NIGHT, are back-to-back winners of Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award for Best Historical Romance in 2010 and 2011. Lisa Kleypas calls her "the most powerfully original historical romance author working today." Her story is all the more interesting given that English is Sherry's second language--she has come a long way from the days when she made her laborious way through Rosemary Roger's SWEET SAVAGE LOVE with an English-Chinese dictionary. She enjoys digging down to the emotional core of stories. And when she is not writing, she thinks about the zen and zaniness of her profession.

Book #1 Beguiling the Beauty
Book #2 Ravishing the Heiress
Book #2.5 A Dance in Moonlight
Book #3 Tempting the Bride
This little Novella - "A Dance in Moonlight" just didn't do it for me. The reader may have already become acquainted with the heroine, Isabelle, in "Ravishing the Heiress" - she was in love with the impoverished Earl Fitzhugh (Fitz) but alas he had to marry an heiress so he and Isabelle never got together as they had planned. I suppose this book is the author's way of letting her readers know how Isabelle's life turned out. And, in fact, the story starts out with a bang.
Isabelle is preparing to depart from her country manor - Doyle's Grange - where she has been living while attempting to get on with her life. She has loved Fitz since forever but all hopes of having him for her very own are now gone. However, as she is leaving Doyle's Grange, she runs into a man in front of her home and believing him to be Fitz, embraces him with excitement thinking he has come to her after all. In fact, it is not Fitz but the man is very nearly a double of Fitz.
The story is about their acquaintance and their eventual romance. The first few pages were interesting, then it seemed as though the story just became blah! Where was the Sherry Thomas who wrote "Not Quite a Husband" or even "Tempting the Bride" which was also a very interesting read?
Sherry Thomas is one gifted writer - my favorite book of hers is "Not Quite a Husband." I was utterly enthralled with the storyline and the writing. It is one of the most amazing love stories I have ever read. Her website and author's page is among the first I turn to when checking out current books. Because some of her books are so amazing, I will continue to buy her books in the hopes she will eventually turn out another winner.
It is a novella so things move along at lightening speed. Still, I enjoyed both the hero and the heroine and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of character development in such a short time. A nice, quick read.
