WELCOME TO MOONLIGHT SQUARE ~ REGENCY LONDON'S MOST EXCLUSIVE ADDRESS!
At the ripe old age of two-and-twenty, Lady Katrina Glendon just can't seem to snare a husband. Whether her frank tongue or slightly eccentric ways bear the blame, she faces a houseful of younger sisters clamoring for her, the eldest, to marry and move aside before they all end up as spinsters. When her latest suitor defects and proposes to another girl, Trinny throws up her hands in despair of ever finding a fiancé. But sometimes destiny waits just around the corner…and love lives right across the square!
Gable Winston-McCray, the charming, understated Viscount Roland saunters through life as a wealthy, sophisticated rakehell and man-about-town. Heir to an earldom, the handsome hedonist would rather dally with bored Society wives than acquire a bride of his own, much to his father's dismay. Until, one moonlit night, fate strikes! Unsuspecting neighbors meet and become flirtatious allies. So when Gable receives his father's ultimatum to wed or go penniless, he offers Trinny a marriage of convenience. Alas, the pretty redhead cannot possibly accept such an unfeeling proposal—even if her dear "Lord Sweet Cheeks" might be the man of her dreams…

4.5 "The Bluestocking & Lord Sweet Cheeks" Stars!
If you're looking for a short and fun historical romance, then ONE MOONLIT NIGHT may just be the book you've been looking for. I loved the depth of the characters and entertaining banter between the hero and the heroine. Moreover, the book pokes fun at the double standard prevalent between men and women in the Regency era without coming across as too political. By pitting two characters together, each who have sworn off marriage (for vastly different reasons), Ms. Foley brings together two characters who are perfectly matched without all the distractions of courtship that were so tedious in the day. The premise and execution were excellent and I highly enjoyed this little treasure.
After numerous failed courtship attempts, Lady Katrina Glendon, the oldest of a brood of sisters, has finally given up her quest for marriage and has decided to wholeheartedly embrace the spinster life. Of course this news comes much to the elation of the gaggle of sisters who had been waiting for her, as the oldest, to marry first before they could tie their knot.
Katrina too seems happy with her decision until a certain well-known rake, Gable Winston-McCray, a Viscount and heir to an Earl, and who she has coined "Lord Sweet Cheeks," takes her into his confidence and proclaims his desire to be "friends." As the two start depending on each other more and more as their friendship blossoms, each begins to see the brighter side of marriage. But can two people who have sworn off marriage ever consider changing their destiny?
What a treat! ONE MOONLIT NIGHT is the novella prequel to the Moonlight Square series, a new historical romance Regency series which will tell the romantic stories of the residents of the exclusive, upper crust Moonlit Square. With the very promising start of ONE MOONLIT NIGHT, which has introduced a number of secondary characters who will no doubt form the basis for further entertaining romantic reads, I'm now looking forward to reading more of this series!
