Oh, to be gifted with Marsha Canham's ability to spin a tale!
Marsha Canham masterfully concocts an incredible cast of characters in this novel, deftly weaves in actual historical figures, presents a compelling story as she tosses her readers on board a ship bound for the high seas. . . all of this in the first chapter. And it just gets better.
I would like to also say that her research was incredibly accurate. There was no twisting of fact to suit her fiction, there was an attention to detail that all other authors wish they had, and there was a genuine interest in presenting the life of a man of the sea in addition to a steamy and seductive love story. Beau and Dante are sheer magic, I must say, but it's Beau's father who steals the show.
Read this book. It is a shining example of how historical fiction should be written. Marsha, please hurry up with the next one!

Just got my Kindle and this was a freebie so thought I would give it a try. I like historical romance and I have a soft spot for pirates so hoped this would be good. Well I was not disappointed with this fabulous swashbuckling love affair set on the high seas.......couldn't wait to get the other two in the trilogy after reading this!

Marsha writes with such intelligence and wit that is prevalent in all her books, and Across a Moonlit Sea is no exception. Her words come to life and her characters stay with you long after you have read the last page. Her attention to detail is unparalleled by any other romance author I have read. And let's not forget the importance of a sexy hero and steamy love scenes!
What makes this book my favorite is the heroine, Isabeau Spence. Marsha has created a character who is independant, intelligent, strong willed and way ahead of her time.

I REALLY enjoyed this book. I read the vast majority of it on an extremely long train journey and I'm sure the people opposite me thought I was crazy because I kept bursting into laughter at the antics of Beau.

And there I think is the crux of what makes this book so good - the main female character Beau is just brilliant. She has just the right amount of humour, wit, intelligence and fire to be easily lovable and to make the reader care about her. I also thought Dante was great - just that kind of cocky, demanding but loyal and fierce man that makes you wish he was a real person. The clashes they have are hilarious and (on some notable occasions) pretty steamy! (Yeah, that was a little awkward on the train lol).

Another thing that really impressed me about this book was that the author had clearly done her research exceptionally well. The knowledge of shipping terms and sailing manouevres was impressive. It was also great to see so many historical figures appearing in the book such as Francis Drake. That era of history was always fascinating to me and gave this novel an instant backdrop for my imagination.

Thoroughly enjoyed and would buy more from this author.

Although I have read many romance novels in my time I would be the first to admit that many of them are formulaic. This book was a pleasant surprise - all the usual ingredients were there of course, deliciously hunky hero, feisty heroine, sizzling sex scenes - but there was also a surprising amount of history thrown in. Set (mostly at sea) in Tudor times, just before the Armada of 1588, the book captures a great deal of the political feel of the time and the author's knowledge of Elizabethan sailing, ships and weaponry gives an authentic feel to the story. Still probably only for romance afficionados, but well researched nevertheless and an enjoyable read.

Fantastic characters. I love books which aren't just about the hero/heroine. I had to keep reading to find out what happened next.

History, great characters, swashbuckling action and hot love scenes. What more could you ask?

I downloaded this Marsha Canham book as it was free and liking a historical romance I decided to give it a try. I can easily say it is the best free book I've ever downloaded and has converted me to a huge Marsha fan that I've read several of her other books since. The first chapter in Across a Moonlit Sea is a bit long winded with a lot of nautical references that almost put me off, but when you get past that and the story really begins it is brilliant. All Marsha Canham's stories have incredible H & H's and the research behind them makes them so much more than historical romances. It's a rare romance where the history, adventure, action and intrigue in the story is just as gripping as the romance. For anyone who has never read a Marsha Canham book before and even only slightly likes historical romance or action/adventure books please give this one a try while its free (it really is that good!). If like me you become hooked after finishing the 'Pirate Wolf Series' I'd strongly reccomend 'The Wind and the Sea' 'Swept Away' and 'The Robin Hood Trilogy' they're all amazing reads with really memorable characters.

Couldn't put the book down. What an adventure I felt I was on reading this fantastic book. I'm a history lover and really enjoyed reading all about their adventure, made me want to go off and search out the real history of that time era and the events that were mentioned. I felt there was a really good mixture of history, sailing facts and romance. I see there are other books that are about their daughter, I would certainly go and read those as well. My only moan I think would be, that I would have loved a bit more at the end, to me it finished just a tad too quickly but then that is also a sign of a good book; you just don't want them to end.
