Fate has chosen her to play a part in England's destiny and to gamble recklessly with her only chance for happiness and love…

AT DARK OF THE MOON is a classic Regency Romance by Alice Chetwynd Ley: a traditional British, historical adventure story with a twist of suspense and mystery, set during the Napoleonic Wars.
‘These vintage Regency romances hover somewhere between Jane Austen and the genre as we know it today. I really enjoy them.’ - Sonya’s Stuff
