      Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestRebecca Brandewyne is a household name in the bodice ripper genre Her Aguilar s Fate series is popular than this one, but since I d managed to obtain books 1 2 of this duology, Chandlers of Highclyffe Hall seemed like a good starting point for this author Warning Spoilers Maggie Chandler is the daughter of Sir Hugh, the lord of Highclyffe Hall an elegant, creepy castle built on the moors of Cornwall Her father blames her for the death of her mother and abuses [...]

    2. UPON A MOON DARK MOOR, by Rebecca Brandewyne 3 Goth Good, But Noth Great StarsALRIGHT, ALRIGHT I know I m a shitty punster I just couldn t help myself Put away your pitchforks I ll get on with my review Upon the wild, savage moors of Cornwall, high atop the crumbling, sea drenched cliffs, lies a forbidding looking manor house called Highclyffe Hall home of a lonely, motherless girl named Maggie The only child of Sir Nigel Chandler a cold, harsh man, prone to violent mood swings and scathing, mid [...]

    3. In Upon a Moon Dark Moor, the author rewrites Wuthering Heights to suit her Eh I never particularly liked that over the top gothic classic to begin with and this version left me similarly unmoved.The first person narrative of the heroine is annoying, what with all her foreboding as you shall soon see, dear reader and if I had only known then, it would have made such a difference later All these warnings and dire allusions set me up for some epic plot twists and turns but in the end, the big reve [...]

    4. Like all of my favorite romances, I have reread this several times over the years Here are my key takeaways some spoilers 1 This historical romance set in early nineteenth century England 1800 1819 is clearly inspired by Emily Bront s tragedy Wuthering Heights and, therefore, contains similar elements a It s told in first person POV.b The first 100 pages, give or take, focuses on the intertwined childhoods of Maggie and Draco so it takes a while before the romance kicks in.c It contains gothic u [...]

    5. Bland heroine, and not too likeable hero if that s the right word for Draco If I wanted a first person narrative gothic with a Cornwall setting, I could have done better picking up Victoria Holt The rape forced seduction with the traitorous body trope is freely used, I know there are some readers that draw the line in the sand at this, so consider yourself warned I believe there is a sequel, Across A Starlit Sea.

    6. This book was a great and compelling read It is not life changing, but it it memorable and enjoyable What sets this book above many other romances is how complex and multifaceted each character was, and how much the heroine matures and transforms throughout the novel Upon a Moon Dark Moor does appear to be partially inspired by Wurthering Heights There is an illegitimate gypsy cousin, Draco, another cousin, Edumnd, who is represents a refined and idealized romance, and a wild ish heroine, Maggi [...]

    8. I was pleasantly surprised by this book I was expecting a drama filled Mary Sue TSTL heroine and not an ounce of depth to the story but what I got was a well thought out, well researched story set in Cornwall with a heroine I actually liked and a hero that didn t get on my nerves that bad I mean it was still a bodice ripper he literally rips her bodice off but it was well written the author did a lot on the time period and the Corn Laws and such and the characters were actual people, not cardboa [...]

    9. Tr s bonne surprise pour ce Aventure et Passion qui se d marque des autres par son c t plus sombre et moins cul cul la praline Les personnages ont tous leur d fauts ce qui les rends encore plus cr dibles.Alors oui le livre met du temps d marrer mais c est cause du r sum qui en fait n est pas un excellent r sum puisqu il nous parle du milieu du bouquin et du fait qu on s attend une histoire d amour traditionnelle Au d but je me demandais si j allais accrocher ce r cit d enfance surtout que le r c [...]

    10. Definitely one of the better romance novels I ve read in a while It s loosely based on Wuthering Heights, so that was a plus going in since that is my favorite book It seemed tome where in W.H each character was so involved in their own personality issues, this book had a few extra characters so that each could embody someone from the original work and each could be their own person as well The writing is really what kept me in the story though, because it could have easily become very cheesy ve [...]

    11. Ottimo romanzo storico, una narrazione in prima persona che per nn penalizza i personaggi che emergono vividi dal racconto della protagonista Belle descrizioni di una Cornovaglia selvaggia e mutevole che accompagna le vicissitudini dei personaggi principali Forse un po lenta la prima parte della fanciullezza di Maggie Ricco di avvenimenti, anche storici, che la Brandewyne riporta, dando ancor pi carattere al romanzo che ho letto davvero con grande piacere

    12. These Cornwall Gothics are old books don t let the September 1999 re release date on fool you , very un PC, and written in first person, but the heroes are just yummy If you like your heroes gentle and you re looking for humor, these books are not for you, but whenever I want a bit of sturm and drang, I reread both, since one follows the other.

    13. J ai particuli rement aim cette histoire Les caract res des h ros sont bien construits On croit vraiment leur histoire d amour qui n a rien de commun et sort un peu des sentiers battus C est finement crit Je relis avec plaisir.

    14. although I didnt like this as much as the Rainbow s End, this book had some great highlights in the story I remember the prt when the Hero said to the heroine s father out of all the things you have we ere the best I read this a very long time ago so I really cant remember.

    15. The only thing you need to know about this book is that he rapes her and the author thinks that is romantic.

    16. I read this book when I was 18 years old My very first historical romance novel WOW It stayed with me for years It s a little dark a little Gothic and I loved it.

    17. I read it one sitting, so it was good enough for a quick read Sadly, I barely remember a thing about it now which is a telling review in itself.
