    Two years later, Rafe meets Mystere Rillieux in one of the events hosted by an icon of the New York Four Hundred. They are immediately attracted to one another though Rafe still remains haunted by Lady blue eyes. As they fall in love, Mystere wonders if she should inform her beloved about her career as the mysterious jewel thief Lady Moonlight?

    The cast is fully developed and quite gregarious especially Mystere and Rafe. The plot is excitingly filled with romance between the lead couple and action especially when Lady Moonlight works her trade. However, MOONLIGHT BECOMES HER belongs to 1880s New York that picturesquely comes alive whether the scene takes place amidst the environs of the Lady Astor-Vanderbilt crowd or the teeming slums. What readers obtain is an incredible historical romance that fans of historical novels and obviously romance readers will appreciate and turn Meagan McKinney into an author of first choice.
