The Velvet Cloak of Moonlight

Sarah Johnson | Historical Novels Review

“It’s a well-written dual-time romance partly set against a pivotal episode of English Civil War history: the 1646 siege of Raglan, which was among the last Royalist strongholds to fall to Parliamentary forces.”

“Courtenay provides wonderful visual details of the castle interior in its elegant former state.”

“Family squabbles, rumors of lost treasure, and a couple of nasty villains add to the entertaining plotline.”

#Review: The Velvet Cloak of Moonlight by Christina Courtenay

Anne | Being Anne

“There’s a real art to writing a good time slip story, and Christina Courtenay always gets it absolutely right.”

“The book’s strong sense of place and history is remarkable – Raglan Castle and Merrick Court, past and present, are vividly depicted. Beautifully written, I really enjoyed this book – if you’re a time slip fan, or just enjoy two strong romantic stories that sweep you away, I’d really recommend this one.”

The Velvet Cloak of Moonlight

Marcy | Keeper Bookshelf

“Time slip novels are among my favorite type of paranormal-historical-contemporary romance combinations.  We get a glimpse of each and when tied together seamlessly the result is a fascinating experience – exactly like what The Velvet Cloak of Midnight delivers.”

The Velvet Cloak of Midnight is one of those stories that it doesn’t truly matter what genre you prefer reading – it’s the combined story that is the focus and what drives you to continue on, discovering history and everlasting love in both the present and the past.”

“The characters will touch your emotions and their story is filled with tensions, attraction, arrogance, evil incarnate and a satisfying conclusion to it all.  This one will touch your heart, and that’s what a really good story should do.”

“As the velvet cloak of moonlight settled over the ruined towers of Raglan Castle, the shadows beneath them stirred…”

When newly widowed Tess returns to Merrick Court, her husband’s home, it’s to confront her past head-on. But during a visit to the nearby Raglan Castle, an extraordinary hallucination transports her to a past that existed long before her own – to seventeenth-century Wales and to a castle on the brink of a siege. Even when Tess leaves Raglan, the strangeness continues as her life becomes increasingly intertwined with her dreams and visions. And when she meets Josh Owens, a stranger from New Zealand, the parallels become even more obvious.

But perhaps the voices from the past are simply trying to tell their own story or is it something more…
