Hilarious Kangaroo
This is the sequel of Once Upon A Dream, story of Hugo Montagu, brother of Raphael in OUAD. Even in the prequel, Hugo was described as irresponsible, immature, rebellious & constantly in trouble. He gambles excessively, have had many duels from angry husbands who their wives he caroused. His brother always bails him out of trouble & he was eventually exiled to Paris. When he finally returned to London, he supposedly have changed or wanted to change, at least. He wanted his mother and his brother to be proud of him. He wanted to buy his own estate, settle down and live a simple life. His mother was still of course skeptical about all his ideas of the so called "change" and there is yet a lot that remains to be seen....
Everything seems to be looking good for him until Hugo got lured back to the gambling table and lost everything he's got. He was even considering marrying an ugly but rich heiress who is quite taken by him when he was in Lonson. Then he saw Meggie Bloom in a mental institution when his mother sent him to stand for her while she recuperates from her flu. He also found out that Meggie was about to inherit a large sum of money from her long lost father. Better a beautiful crazy looney heiress than an ugly one, right? so the scheme begun...
I specially like Meggie Bloom, the heroine of this book. She is not only attractive but tender hearted, well educated, witty & saucy when needed to be. Since she lived in an orphanage then the Sanitarium all her life, Meggie is innocent and somehow quite naive about the outside world. It's so amusing when Hugo believed her daft, meanwhile she continues to act or talk like one thinking this is how Hugo or husbands prefers their wife to be. I enjoyed the secondary characters: the wolf, Sister Agnes, the Aunties and the overall plot. However, sad to say, Hugo, the hero isn't too likable inspite all the reasons and excuses given... I kindda understand his character and somehow, i felt a bit sorry for him. He tries so hard to change yet he keeps getting himself in trouble. Meggie is the only one who seems to see his good sides. In fact, that is all she sees. To her, Hugo is an angel. Her savior, her Prince. She sees his potentials & this encourages him to try even harder. Kindda sad yet irritating and frustrating at the same time... Oh well, this is probably the reaction Katherine Kingsley wanted the readers to have. Hugo might not be all too likable compared to the other heros in all the historical romance I've read but he is quite realistic. I guess, his flaws makes him more real and if you have read ONCE UPON A DREAM, his character is actually consistent to his role there as well.
My disappointments about this book is the very short appearance of Rafe and the no appearance of Lucy at all. Rafe and Lucy is the H/H is the first book, OUAD. They are actually the main reason I've gotten this book. I wanted to read updates of the two. I also wondered what happend to Lucy's two stepsisters. I know that they were from another book story but it would have been nice to read updates about them anyhow. And lastly, this book didn't have any epilogue... so then what happend to them after they had their confession, pledge love and devotion? children? It would be nice to read what happend to them in few years after that... perhaps a mention of whether Hugo was true to his word and really did changed or not... It just ended a bit abrupt in my opinion. There should have been more proof that Hugo is a changed man. He said his gambling days were over. Ummm, but this is what he said once before yet he was tempted back so easily.... there should have been an incident towards the end of this book to proved that his word of promises is acted upon or perhaps in epilogue. (I hate for Meggie to end up broke due to his gambling, considering it's all her money to begin with. ugh! lol) <--- see, to think this way at the end of a book? i say, this is how unconvince I am. sorry. The book also mentioned introducing Meggie to the London Ton and how they would go about it. But the plans was just told and never acted upon... Wouldn't it be nice to read about that part too? The Ton's reaction and so on.... I felt so sorry for Meggie in the beginning. She's such a lovely character (inside and out) that you just can't help wishing her childhood was different... and towards the end, Hugo just wasn't convincing enough for me to feel he deserves Meggie at all.
Well, despite my above complaints, the book overal is a good read. There is some humor, some love and some romance.... but I liked ONCE UPON A DREAM way better than this one.

In "Call Down the Moon," Kingsley portrays an unlikely love between an orphaned girl with a supernatural ability and an irresponsible aristocrat facing potential ruin from excessive living. Hugo Montagu is trying to reform and get his life together. But like many gambling addicts, Hugo finds it hard not to go back to his old ways. Circumstances eventually force him to find a way to recoup his losses, which leads to Meggie Bloom. He convinces her that he wants to marry her because he fell in love with her at first sight. Meggie, who is very sheltered and naive, believes him. Meggie believes in Hugo's noble character which helps him to reform. He eventually falls in love with her, but is afraid of his lies catching up with him. Thus, the stage is set for discoveries of betrayal, reconciliation and eventually, the happy ending (which is why we read this stuff, right?).
The supernatural factor adds an interesting sub-plot. I admit that I had to suspend my disbelief at some of the "coincidences" in the book. But I enjoyed Hugo and Meggie's blooming romance because I found myself cheering for Hugo to become the better man and truly deserve Meggie's love.

2/3 of the book showed the H, Hugo, to be one of the last people any smart woman would want. I didn't buy his sudden "realization" that he wanted to be better then miraculously changed. (Especially in just the last chapter.). Give me a break. The h had to be portrayed as such a dimwit because only a dimwit would want the H.

It was an ok book. Of all the Katherine Kingsley's that I have read, this one held my interest the least.

I have to confess from the outset that I am not usually fond of paranormal Regencies, although I have made the occasional exception here and there. So, if you don't like paranormal elements, this might not be the book for you. CALL DOWN THE MOON has a wonderful title (appropriate given both the heroine's supposed insanity and her strange pet); it has a fascinating heroine and some wonderfully zany relatives and servants. So what is wrong? The hero. If you don't like heros who behave irresponsibly through most of the book, this is not the book for you. While Hugo (brother of the Duke who appears as the hero in ONCE UPON A DREAM) is a scapegrace, a gambler who has wasted his inheritance, and who cold-bloodedly plans to marry an apparently crazy heiress for her heir, he is not actually as bad as he seems. Kingsley does a fine job in showing how addicts can be tempted easily, especially by supposed friends. Hugo's decision to court someone he believes to be insane and illegitimate is a result of his succumbing to temptation. I found this plot device both interesting and believable.
What I found hard to take was that the heroine would fall hopelessly in love with him, despite his belief that she was both insane and a dimwit. And I also found his wilful blindness to her sanity, her intelligence and all her excellent qualities hard to take. This is Hugo's book, but we do learn a bit more about his family, including the cause of his father's suicide and the effect it has had on the survivors. [Contrary to what some reviewers wrote, we also learn a bit more about Raphael and Lucy]. I read this book first, and I have to admit that I had an entirely different picture of the way Raphael courted Lucy...
A good read, but with a rather flawed hero. And, as others have pointed out, there is no assurance that Hugo has learned that he will never be entirely free from gambling, nor has he learned to fully appreciate his wife. I thought this novel badly needed an epilogue, showing that he had indeed reformed, learned to deal with his gambling addiction, and also learned to treat his wife as an equal.
