Book Description

4 Dec 2008 Lyndon Family Saga (Book 1)

When Robert Kemble stumbles across Victoria Lyndon in a hedgerow maze, he can't believe his eyes. The girl who'd torn him in two, who let him plan an elopement and then left him standing by the side of the road, was suddenly within arm's reach, and even though his fury still knew no bounds, she was impossible to resist.

Victoria's father had told her an earl would never marry a vicar's daughter, and he was right. Robert had promised her marriage, then danced off to London while she suffered the shame of a foiled elopement. But even though Victoria doesn't particularly enjoy her new life as a governess, when Robert offers her a job of a different sort - his mistress - she refuses, unable to sacrifice her honour, even for him.

But Robert won't take no for an answer, and he vows to make her his, through any means possible. Can these star-crossed lovers learn to trust again? And is love really sweeter the second time round?

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful read! 26 Aug 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Everything and the Moon" is the first book written by Julia Quinn I've read. It will definitely NOT be the last. I absolutely adored this book. The main characters, Victoria & Robert, are intelligent and lively. Their conversations are sure to make you smile if not laugh out loud! Robert is one of the most likable "heroes" that I've come across in historical & romance. I found Victoria's concerns very easy to identify with and liked her immensely. This is one of the best I've read in a long long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun! 28 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With "Everything and the Moon" Julia Quinn has created another distinctive blend of imaginative narrative and expressive characters. Her specialty has always been dialogue- and this tale of star-crossed lovers does not disappoint- her characters spar wittily and often made me laugh out loud. Victoria Lydon is a likable heroine, who, disappointed after a youthful but passionate love affair, grows to be a strong and independent woman. When after seven years, her path again crosses that of her childhood love, Robert, Earl of Macclesfield, she resolves not to fall under his spell again. But love will not be denied- and no matter how much Robert and Victoria try to suppress it, they are drawn together. Theirs is a dance of heartbreak and deception, romance and seduction- you will laugh, you will sniffle, and you will thoroughly enjoy "Everything and the Moon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Up To Usual Quinn Standards 11 Nov 2010
I have read a number of Julia Quinn's 'fun' style regency stories, and really enjoyed them. But unfortunately, this one left me very disappointed and even irritated at times, so much so that I couldn't finish it.
Not sure whether the author herself still wasn't quite convinced in love at first sight, or if the heroine was just far too modern to be credible in this type of story - even a 'tongue in cheek' style one, as Ms Quinn's stories are. But it just didn't work for me at all. I agree with another reviewer, who talks about the 'Big Misunderstanding' that this story hinges on, which isn't really enough to keep the conflict alive, in this case. So the story then degenerates into some kind of strange stalking case, with the heroine behaving like a sulky child, really, whilst the hero beseiges her and his noble relatives all turn out to be more modern women in regency costumes...
Sorry; I usually always enjoy these stories. But this was just not up to the writer's usual standards.

I started reading this book this morning on my way to work (I am a LIRR commuter) and I could not put the book down. Thankfully since I was able to finish my work in record time I was able to finish Everything and the Moon before lunch! I couldn't stop, I tried to slow down my reading (I tend to read really fast, only leaving myself to re-read the book after I've finished to learn of the things I might of missed) I even tried closing the book and waiting until my trip home, but I just couldn't. I loved Robert and I loved Torie (not to mention that I happen to love that nickname for a woman) and I especially loved the mention of the Duke of Ashbourne, which only served to remind me of Splendid (another one of Ms. Quinn's treasures)! This book, along with all of her other books, are delightful! Filled with love and laughter, wit and charm. If you do not read anything for the rest of this century, read her books. SPLENDID, DANCING AT MIDNIGHT and MINX, then EVERYTHING AND THE MOON and BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN, and finally TO CATCH AN HEIRESS and HOW TO MARRY A MARQUIS! You won't be sorry!

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whether you believe in love at first sight or not, there is something magical about the idea, something whimsical and inherently young about it. Robert Kemble, Earl of Macclesfield, wasn't a believer until he stumbled across Victoria Lyndon one summer's day, and lost his heart. In a swift courtship over a halcyon summer, the pair fall head over heels and make plans to elope. However, the intervention of both disapproving fathers leads to disappointment, disillusionment and heartbreak.

Seven years later, while attending a house party, Robert discovers the family governess lost in the maze. It's her! And he's so furious he doesn't know whether to kiss or kill her. For Victoria it's just another cruel twist to an extrememly bad day, and his refusal to leave her alone only makes things worse.

No matter what he feels for her, Robert knows he can't live without her, but when she refuses to be his mistress, he feels as lost and heartbroken as he had seven years earlier. A trip home soon sets him straight about outside interference, but when he seeks out Victoria to beg her forgiveness, he finds her gone. She could be anywhere, but he has to find her. He can't lose her again...

For Robert this is a tale about love and trust, of finding that one special person and moving heaven and earth to make sure he never lets her go. But for Victoria it's something different. When she first falls for Robert she is young, naive and easily influenced. She believes that love is everything, and that's all they need.

Seven years of hard, thankless work make her bitter, insecure and uncertain of her life. After the second time of Robert breaking her heart though, she finds an independent place, which finally allows her to feel secure and be herself.
