Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Canham's (The Pride of Lions) latest dashing historical romance, beautiful French refugee Renee d'Anton, who has narrowly escaped the guillotine, lands in almost as great a mess in England. Caught in her uncle's web of scheming, and with her younger brother's life at risk, she reluctantly agrees to help the evil Colonel Roth catch highwayman Tyrone Hart, better known as Captain Starlight. But when she meets the highwayman, Renee gets a better idea: she'll double-cross Roth and escape with the handsome outlaw. Entertaining plot twists follow, enlivened by sharply drawn characters and plenty of sex. If the elements are familiar (echoes of The Scarlet Pimpernel, in particular) and a few of the French phrases are mangled, engrossed readers are unlikely to mind.

I'm a recent convert to Marsha Canham's work and I love her style. Epic in scope and meticulous in detail, her well-written historical novels are an invitation to another world for a few hours, and I've enjoyed every trip I've taken with her.
Pale Moon Rider is no exception to that rule. It's a swashbuckling tale of a resourceful beauty in distress and a reluctant highwayman hero drawn against his will into a scheme to save her from a truly unpleasant fate.
If you haven't read any Marsha Canham before, you're in for a treat with Pale Moon Rider. If you have read her other works, then smile, because you've got another great one to look forward to!

I have always been a Marsha Canham fan and this book does not disappoint. Tyrone and Renee's story, as has been commented upon before, is not your typical highwayman story. That she does not follow the "Robinhood" theme as most of these stories do, is quite refreshing. Tyrone is a great charater who has depth and personallity, unlike most of the cardboard cutout characters which are written today. I also appreciated the fact that Ms. Canham does not forget what her characters have done in the story. Tyrone is hurt, as the story progresses, we see how this handicaps him in dealing with the "bad guys". He limps, and breaks out in a sweat, etc...he doesn't miraculously recover and fight evil with nary a misstep. Most authors forget that no matter how great their heros are, they are still human, Tyrone is definitely human.
Such care is also taken with Renee. I felt that her character was not quite as strong as Tyrone's but there is depth to her. Fighting her way through a war torn France, especially as a highly placed aristocrat, was not an easy task. Her brother was left mute at the horrors he witnessed, and she had to deal with that as well. Renee had help, which leads us to the secondary characters of the story, who really made the whole plot come together. The plot was richly interwoven with dispicible deeds, great writing and colorful characters.
I only have a few small problems with the story. After going through so much trouble to record the feelings of horror that the aristocrats in France must have felt and the care that they took to try and secure their futures outside France, I felt it was a bit shabbily done that Ms. Canham misplaces (in time)someone as famous as Chopin. I also felt she rushed the end.

With this being the first book I've read of this author's work, I'm particularly fond of the way she writes. There is an intensity and drive in her work to develop her characters in a way that they become very real and true to their natures. This is not to say that they are predictable, but rather that they are truly "people" I, as a reader, would care about.

Each character has his or her own back stories, and the author blends their stories together to create a brilliant "mystery-period-romance" novel. The passion between Tyrone and Renee is written well without being ludicrous, and there's just enough humor to survive some of the more dreadful encounters involving Colonel Roth. These three characters are always in close proximity physically to one another such that I couldn't put this book down from the moment I started reading it. Even when I came to the end of this book, I started it over again immediately.

This is not a fanciful light read by any stretch of the imagination; the author engages you straight away where the reader will become part of the adventure and romance that is Pale Moon Rider. You can be sure I'll be "kindling" other works by Marsha Canham.

I have been a strong fan of Marsha Canham. I loved this book. At first I thought that Captain Starlight was an ordinary 'Robin Hood' but he is not that type of highwayman. This Tyrone Hart is not ordinary. He is literate and he can play the piano very well. The love between Tyrone and Renee paces very quickly. Their adventures are breathtakingly thrilling. The intrigues are well created. The sensuality is sizzling. There are quite descriptive sex scenes. One and only flaw of this book is an unaccuracy in historical fact that Chopin wasn't born until 1810 and the setting of this story is 1796. I didn't know why this occurred to the author who is otherwise very accurate when it comes to historical facts. I hope she will fix it if there is to be a reissue. After all Marsha Canham never disappoints me. I would highly recommend this book.

Let me start by saying that I have yet to be disappointed in a book written by Marsha Canham. After reading her Robin Hood Trilogy and then the Pirate Wolfe Trilogy I quickly searched Amazon eager for more. Pale Moon Rider did not disappoint.

The thing I love most about Canham's stories is that there is always more to them than ballrooms and descriptions of this gown or that. The settings are woven so beautifully that you feel like you are there, exiting your carriage coming face to face with a rogue highwayman dressed in a greatcoat and tricorn hat. Her characters have depth beyond the normal historical romance and you find yourself eagerly turning pages to see what will happen next.

Tyrone Hart, aka the infamous highwayman "Captain Starlight" may be her most intriguing hero yet. He is so wicked that you almost think he is unredeemable, but you want the French damsel in distress to fall in love with him anyway. There is so much more to him---so many layers.

This book is wonderful. If you are a fan of historical romances, go to Marsha Canham's author page and just start downloading them all. You will be very glad you did!
