I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not a big romance reader. Sure, I enjoy them when I come across them, but they aren’t the first thing I pick to read, and I tend towards contemporary romance if at all. So if I was weepy over Kate Hawks’ Watch By Moonlight, I think just about anyone interested in romance would enjoy it.
It’s a very well-written take on Alfred Noyes’ narrative poem “The Highwayman”. A short little love story with a lot of drama and adventure thrown in the mix. The Booklist review stated, “this tragic tale of love and sacrifice will cast a mesmerizing spell over fans of passionate romances. Darkly compelling historical fiction.”
Honestly, I didn’t want it to come to the heartbreaking end. Kate Hawks hasn’t written anything since, so I fear this one is lost on your shelves and may be in danger of being weeded. Grab it and send it off with someone (box of Kleenex is optional)!
