5.0 out of 5 stars Canham delivers another first-rate historical romance
As a longtime fan of Marsha Canham, I was thrilled by the release of PALE MOON RIDER. Canham writes vivid, complex, lusty romances with some of the best heroes and heroines in the genre. Highwayman Tyrone Hart is a prototypical Canham hero -- strong, yet willing to be vulnerable in matters of the heart. Renee D'Anton, a survivor of the French revolution, is his...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ms. Canham's Books Not Short on Description
Another great story idea from Ms. Canham, but it was weaker than The Blood of Roses. The end was too rushed and the middle too drawn out. It was easy to fall in love with Tyrone, however. It was nice to see him soften more as time went on. It would have been nice to get to know Renee a little more deeply. Perhaps we will be surprised with a sequal that will further...

5.0 out of 5 stars Canham delivers another first-rate historical romance, 4 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Pale Moon Rider (Mass Market Paperback)
As a longtime fan of Marsha Canham, I was thrilled by the release of PALE MOON RIDER. Canham writes vivid, complex, lusty romances with some of the best heroes and heroines in the genre. Highwayman Tyrone Hart is a prototypical Canham hero -- strong, yet willing to be vulnerable in matters of the heart. Renee D'Anton, a survivor of the French revolution, is his perfect match. When I've finished a Canham romance I always feel that I not only know her characters, but will remember them. The little thrill I felt upon mention of the name Eduard FitzRandwulf, the hero of her novel IN THE SHADOW OF MIDNIGHT, is proof of her characters' staying power. In PALE MOON RIDER, Marsha only made one small, eminently forgivable faux pas: she had Tyrone playing Chopin before Chopin was born!

5.0 out of 5 stars An unusual book and well worth the read!!!!, 27 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Pale Moon Rider (Mass Market Paperback)
Tyrone Hart is not Romance's usual highwayman. He is not out for revenge or to feed the ills of the world. He steals because he likes the challenge, the excitement. At the same time he is not callous, nor greedy, he does not steal from people who cannot afford the loss. I found myself vastly entertained by this story of intrigue and danger. Read it! You'll enjoy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marsha Canham triumphs yet again!, 15 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Pale Moon Rider (Mass Market Paperback)
As a long-time fan of Marsha Canham, I am thrilled with her new work, "Pale Moon Rider". No one can tell a lusty, period romance quite like Ms. Canham and her latest is no exception. Set in England just after the French Revolution, Ms. Canham gives us a wonderful tall, dark swashbuckling hero named Tyrone Hart and a delightful, sexy and strong heroine named Renee D'Anton. The sparks fly off the page when these two plot mischief, mayhem and romance. As always, Ms. Canham's research into this period brings it alive with the sights, smells and textures of the 18th century English countryside. But beware, her writing is so effortless, you will gallop along at breakneck speed to get to the finish!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a typical highwayman kidnaps helpless woman book!, 9 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Pale Moon Rider (Mass Market Paperback)
Captain Starlight was notorious for his highway robberies. He was startled when Renee d'Anton stepped down from the coach he was suppose to be robbing and announced that she would like to hire him steal a set of heirloom rubies. Even more startling was the fact that he was to steal them from her as she traveled by coach in a couple of weeks! Of course he suspected a trap set up by Colonel Roth.
Renee was helping Roth capture the highwayman only because refusal meant the death of her fourteen year old brother. However, she also expected to double cross Roth. Never would she submit to Roth or be forced to wed Edgar. With the highwayman's help, she and her brother would escape and be far away from everyone's reach!
***Not a typical highwayman kidnaps helpless woman story! This woman has strength and courage, even though she does not FEEL strong or courageous! No simpering Miss here! I loved it!***

It was nice to see him soften more as time went on. It would have been nice to get to know Renee a little more deeply. Perhaps we will be surprised with a sequal that will further tell the story. It would be nice to see Renee's brother have his own story as well. I still recommend it, though, because Ms. Canham pays such intricate attention to detail that you can see the characters, the landscape, and feel for the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely an enjoyable read...., 10 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Pale Moon Rider (Mass Market Paperback)
I have always been a Marsha Canham fan and this book does not disappoint. Tyrone and Renee's story, as has been commented upon before, is not your typical highwayman story. That she does not follow the "Robinhood" theme as most of these stories do, is quite refreshing. Tyrone is a great charater who has depth and personallity, unlike most of the cardboard cutout characters which are written today. I also appreciated the fact that Ms. Canham does not forget what her characters have done in the story. Tyrone is hurt, as the story progresses, we see how this handicaps him in dealing with the "bad guys". He limps, and breaks out in a sweat, etc...he doesn't miraculously recover and fight evil with nary a misstep. Most authors forget that no matter how great their heros are, they are still human, Tyrone is definitely human.
Such care is also taken with Renee. I felt that her character was not quite as strong as Tyrone's but there is depth to her. Fighting her way through a war torn France, especially as a highly placed aristocrat, was not an easy task. Her brother was left mute at the horrors he witnessed, and she had to deal with that as well. Renee had help, which leads us to the secondary characters of the story, who really made the whole plot come together. The plot was richly interwoven with dispicible deeds, great writing and colorful characters.
I only have a few small problems with the story. After going through so much trouble to record the feelings of horror that the aristocrats in France must have felt and the care that they took to try and secure their futures outside France, I felt it was a bit shabbily done that Ms. Canham misplaces (in time)someone as famous as Chopin. I also felt she rushed the end. I don't want to give away the plot, but, what happened to the uncle? Are we waiting for a sequel with her brother to right that wrong? A brief mention was made by Roth that Paxton ran, but there was no confirmation of this and no real care about it. I realize they had plenty of money but wouldn't you try to find him on principle? Anyway, this was a great read, so don't miss it!!!
