The Sun and the Moon (Wexford Family, #2) - Patricia Ryan I didn't enjoy this book as much as some of the others I've read by this author.

The hero/heroine are great and scenes involving them fully kept my interest. Their romance is sweet and the build-up of the tension is done really well. The ending declaration of love is fantastic, too.

What didn't work so well for me was the spy plotline. It's a take off on the film Notorious and I don't feel it translates well to a medieval setting. The secondary characters are a little too plentiful and one-dimensional and I found myself eager to get back to scenes involving only Hugh and Phillipa. The spy plot didn't hold my interest at all but I was happily surprised at the twist toward the end which I didn't see coming.

Overall, a great romance buried in a less than stellar spy story.
