Promo & Review Tour: Moonlight Rider by Charlotte Boyett-Compo


Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the famous highwayman known as “the Gypsy,” is about to have his heart stolen by the very woman he intends not to marry.



Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the son of the duke of Arlington, is a nobleman of the highest order, dissolute and a thief. He is a drinker and a lover, and at night he is “the Gypsy,” a highwayman who prowls from the city of Boreas to Chappendale Forest. 

And yet, his heart is true. Impelled by a tragic past, he steals from the rich and gives to the poor, offers hope to those who cannot fight their fate. So much was taken from him, which is why he gives. He himself is undeserving of love and happiness, but there are those who are worthy, like Lady Althea Standfield, daughter to the duke of Oxmoor. Independent and kind, beautiful and smart, she must be freed from the obligation of marrying him. His heart might be stolen by a woman of such fine form and finer character...but his heart is all that he has left, and it is perfectly protected.


She licked her lips—wondering what his would taste like. How the sculpted muscles that undulated beneath the wet shirt would feel against her palms. How tight those brawny arms would hold her.
His smile widened, became knowing and he began to slide his hand slowly up and down the handle of the pitchfork in a suggestive way.
Althea stumbled away from the window, turned then looked wildly about her.
She had to have him.
Declan Farrell.
She must have him whether he was willing or not.
If it was the last thing she ever did, she would claim that man as her own!

“I have such need for you, wench,” he said.
That was more than evident to her. He was close enough for her to feel the tip of his cock pressing against her body.
The laces undone, he pushed her nightdress over her shoulders and it fell from her arms, rippled down her body to pool at her feet. Before she could take another breath, he snaked his arms around her, put his hands to her rump and lifted her. She wrapped her legs around his waist, her arms around his neck and kissed him. He took three steps to her bed, turned and drew her down with him to the narrow mattress.
From their very first night together she had known he would always be a gentle—and thorough—lover. He always put her pleasure before his own and this night was no different. His hard body covered hers, his delicious weight pressing her into the covers, and he smoothly eased her thighs apart with his hips. His lips moved to her chin, her neck, the sensitive sweep of flesh between neck and shoulder and then he was gliding down her. The moment his mouth closed over her straining nipple, she arched toward him. His low chuckle vibrated against that turgid peak to send chills down her sides.

Charlotte Boyett-Compo delivers a charming and entertaining historical romance with Moonlight Rider. Declan Farrell is the type of character you can't help but love. He's an handsome earl who also happens to be this Robin Hood type person know as the Gypsy. While this basically is part of his night life, he also has to contend with his duties as an earl. What happens from here is a series of twists and turns and some super hot and sexy scenes, that will leave you eager to turn to the next page.  There's two beautiful women, Bess and Lady Althea who book can't help but fall for the charms of Declan, but Declan has no idea how much these two are going to impact his life. There's so much more that happens but I'm not going to spoil it for you.

Moonlight Rider is a fantastic story. It has great main characters , but also the supporting characters, like Declan's friend Jack, his wife, and Declan's father, help make this such a rell rounded story. You won't be able to put this down and once you think something is going to be one way, Charlotte Boyett-Compo take you down another path. Even if a historical romance isn't a book you would normally read, check out Moonlight Rider. It's charming, clever, funny, and sexy story you won't want to miss.
