Publisher's Summary

Pittsburgh, 1900. The mysterious Vanderhorn family hires Nora Bennett as a nurse and companion to her injured, handsome, stepson Alex. Nathan Vanderhorn is drawn to Nora, even though he's betrothed to the socially elite Celeste. Though Nora vies to steer clear of the family problems, a sinister plot pulls her in deeper than she'd ever imagined. Who in this strange household could she trust?

Nathan is forced to run the family steel mill when all he really wants is to become an attorney. Alex wants nothing more than to walk again and run his steel mill. The willful stepmother strives to keep them both from their desires. Both brothers seem to be attracted to Nora. Which brother will she fall in love with?

    "So Sweet!"

    This is a clean and sweet romance. I really enjoyed this story and thought the narrator added so much to this book with his performance.R. William James was able to give the various characters different voices. This story is original and has some unexpected twists. I thought this was one of my favorite books by this author and will definitely listen to it again. There is a wholesomeness about this author's writing and fitting for the time period of her books. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. Certain characters were very endearing in this story and others were despicable. I was provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge and have voluntarily written this review.

    "Unexpected"

    Early in the book I thought the story was going to play out quickly and felt disappointed. To my delight, the story took on some unexpected twists that did not follow the usual historical romance template, making it a pleasurable read as the hero and heroine faced unusual obstacles.

    Story
    "Move Over Snidely Whiplash!"

    Move over Snidely Whiplash! In the best style of Victorian Gothic romance we have an evil stepmother; brooding, crippled hero; sweet, unsuspecting, clear-eyed heroine; feckless half-brother; and evil mill owner with beautiful, haughty daughter. A pleasing potboiler pleasantly read [AUDIO] for a delightfully entertaining interlude. Although not her usual wild west setting, author Barbara Goss again serves up distinctive personalities in a dastardly, devious plot with a side of faith-based love and romance. Happy reading/listening!

    "A sweet audio book!"

    I enjoyed the audio version of this book! While I didn't think the narrator captured the emotion very well, I did enjoy all the voices he did! I never had to guess who was speaking because he did an outstanding job on variations between characters!
    Barb always writes exceptional books and this one competes nicely! While there wasn't a huge Christian conversation, the majority of the focus is on waiting to be intimate till you wedding night!! A very strong Christian theme!! I loved the characters and the diversity of their personalities!!

    "Temptation by Moonlight was a Wonderful Historical"
    Where does Temptation by Moonlight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    All of Barbara Goss's audiobooks rank pretty high up on some of the best I've listened to. I've enjoyed ALL her work. She's a fantastic author and one I will continue to listen to.


    What other book might you compare Temptation by Moonlight to and why?

    In this genre, many are good but Temptation by Moonlight as well as anything written by this author is no doubt going to be good.


    What does R William James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed R. William James performance. It was a slight bit monotone but I think the male voice in this particular story was best.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Well, the title would be a good tag line I suppose.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio book was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "A clean, sweet historical romance!"

    This audio book drew me in from the very beginning. Nora is a very strong woman and is impossible to not like. She takes her patient, Alex, into hand and motivates him to help himself. Alex is hard to like at first, but overcomes his sulkiness and becomes a very capable hero. Most of the other characters are weak or manipulative, but some do redeem themselves by the end.
    This is a clean historical romance (you get what leads up to the door, but then what goes on behind it is private). There are also Christian undertones in the story. Faith plays a part in it, but the book is not preachy. There is some deception, family conflicts, temptation, romance, and abuse in this book. In other words, it has a little of everything!
    The narration of the audio book by R. William James was very good. He had different voices that were easily identifiable for the different characters and his voice was easy to listen to. I did think about speeding it up occasionally, but never was compelled enough to actually do it.
    I was given this audio book and this is my honest review.

    Story
    "A New Favorite!"

    Alex Vanderhorn was a successful steel mill owner until an accident left him crippled. Now confined to a single room and a creaky wheelchair, he gives up on any hope of walking again. When Nora Bennett is hired as his nurse and aide, she patiently works to break down his anger and tries to make his life a little better each day. But Nora doesn't expect to be tossed into a world of intrigue and suspense. Every day in the Vanderhorn household reveals new glimpses into a dangerous conspiracy.

    I think this is my new favorite Barbara Goss book! I just loved Nora, she is so patient yet powerful. She's a strong woman who pictures her life without a man and is happy with it. Whenever Nora discovers a secret or overhears an alarming conversation, she doesn't keep it to herself and worry over it, she takes it straight to the source. It's refreshing to have a heroine do that. Alex was a sweetheart, a tortured hero who just needed a little push to stop feeling sorry for himself.

    I really enjoyed the narration, R William James had a deep pleasant voice that he lightened for the female voices. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

    "Great Read"
    Any additional comments?

    Temptation by Moonlight by Barbara Goss was another great read by the author. Nora is hired as a companion for Alex. Nora winds up sparking something in Alex that seemed lost long ago. I love this book and recommend it for everyone.

    "Ok Story"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. I am used to a certain style book from this author and this one did not work for me. The manipulation, backbiting, cowering, and actual murder attempt did not sit well. I listen to this author's books to take me out of my head with the crazy world we live in. This one brought everything to the forefront. It was developed but too often I was able to anticipate what was going to happen next. This is not usually the case when I listen to her other books.

    "Fantastic"

    Absolutely loved everything about this audiobook.
    Great story with lots of depth, great lead charators that you can't help but cheer for their HEA. Not to mention some very horrible ones that you hope fail in the nasty things they are attempting to achieve.
    Excellent job by the narrator, really enjoyable to listen.
