Everything and the Moon
By Julia Quinn

     From the moment he set eyes on her, Robert Kemble, Earl of Macclesfield knew Victoria Lyndon was the woman of his heart. After two months of furtive courting they decide to wed. The Marquess of Castleford's threats to disinherit his son do not deter Robert. Though he gains Torie's agreement to elope, the Vicar of Bellfield goes to extreme measures to keep his daughter from her assignation.

     Seven years later fate reunites them when Robert attends an affair hosted by Victoria's employers. Robert is convinced she had loved only his wealth and power. His offer to take Victoria as his mistress reinforces her belief he had desired nothing more than a dalliance. Undeniable sparks fly, but pride keeps truth at bay.

     Can love heal the festering wounds of their hearts?

Everything and the Moon is a delightful read; it tickles the funny bone as often as it tugs at the heartstrings. Julia Quinn's work is enchanting. Her animated characters pull readers into their lives and love. The scene in the dressmaker's shop is absolutely hilarious. Don't pass this one by.
