Due to the death of her parents, Diana finds herself in charge of her family’s villa, along with her siblings, and others who lived with her. By tradition, only the men are head of the household, and Diana has become the go-to person for everyone that survived the attack by the Saxons. She finds herself fantasizing about how much pleasure Alaric can give to her, but is terrified after the incident she endured during the attack.

When Alaric sees her in the forest, he is mesmerized by Diana’s beauty, and can’t believe she is the same person who is a tyrant, making sure everyone is working hard. He is a trusted lieutenant to Arthur, a British leader bent on conquering the enemy, and finds himself in a situation that is created by his own doing.

Diana by the Moon took me by surprise with King Arthur’s conquests, and his ability to negotiate with the remaining Romans in Britain. This is definitely a time after the Roman legions have returned to Rome, leaving their people open to the Saxon’s pillaging. Diana proved again and again that she was a true leader. That she was willing to stand in the face of adversity and found love where she thought was not a possibility was a testament to her strength.

Ms. Cooper-Posey has again created a fantastic story filled with murder, love, and betrayals. I loved every moment of reading how Alaric and Diana learned to work together for the betterment of others. There never seems to be a time when people are able to let go of the old ways, and change for the better, until it’s too late most time. I am happy to know that Alaric and Diana are able to overcome obstacles that came from others. Kudos to Ms. Cooper-Posey and lasting success!
