THE MIDNIGHT ANGEL OF BODMIN MOOR
Kara has become the "Midnight Angel," a lovely highwayman who steals
only from Redcoats, taking revenge
on the men who killed her parents
18 years ago.
Pirate Adrian Warrick, Marquis of Ravenrock, pursues the Midnight Angel from Bodmin
Moor to London's fashionable sitting rooms. While in London, he meets the
lovely Kara and is captivated
by her. When he discovers she is his
elusive Angel, he marries her and takes her to his home in Cornwall where she
will be safe.
But there are many mysteries yet to be solved on the Bodmin Moor. Who killed her
parents and who is trying to kill Kara?
Though the historical detail could
be embellished (this reader had trouble
discerning the story's time period), this
is a thrilling read in which the mystery
is just as captivating as the romance. Ms. Mays makes great use of the Alfred
Noyes' poem "The Highwayman" in the setup of the murder of Kara's
and the conclusion of the book. This is
a thrilling, gripping and exciting read.
