Kaine almost doesnít believe what he is hearing.  In order for Hopeís husband to make a profitable business transaction, he has offered Kaine the use of his wife, Hope, for the night.  Kaine has wanted her for four years; years in which he yearned for her but knew she was out of his reach.  Agreeing to her husbandís offer, Kaine has no idea how much one night with Hope will change his entire life.

Hope knows now that she had inadvertently not understood what her husband just said.  When he emphatically repeats himself, Hopeís despair is complete.  Having nowhere to go and no one to turn to, she follows through with his orders.  Orders that make her crave for something out of her reach.  In one lust filled and sensual night, Kaine shows Hope exactly what love and desire are all about.  Hope knows that in a few short hours her life has been changed forever. 

I started out not liking the premise of A Garden in the Moonlight because of Hopeís marital status.  Then I realized that it takes more than a piece of paper to make a marriage, and with that I came to the conclusion that Hopeís marriage was in trouble to start with.  Still not a fan of adultery, I settled in to just finish the book.  Imagine my surprise when I read the words and emotion, and felt each characterís pain and insecurities.  I am so glad that I didnít put A Garden in the Moonlight down.  I watched Hope emerge as a woman in charge of her own life and I was able to witness Kaine coming to grips with past pain and making a life decision of worth. 

My final conclusion? A Garden in the Moonlight by Samantha Lucas was an extraordinary read.  No ifs, ands, or buts about it. I liked it.
