Sue Quentin, the multi-million dollar Lotto winner, is so unhappy that she wants nothing more than to end her life. To that end, she hires hitman Tony the Nose to kill her. Even a cold-blooded assassin like Tony is taken aback at this and inquires as to her reasons why. The more Tony listens and understands the depth of selfishness of Sue’s family - particularly of her own scheming mother - that has caused soul-searing agony to this gentle, caring woman, the more he feels connected to her. To his own horror, he begins to care and counsel her to abandon her crazy plans.

Sue relishes the attention and care Tony lavishes on her in his own brusque way, so much so that she is not shocked when she discovers that he is also a werewolf. The uncanny psychic bond between them grows, as does the physical passion. Just as it begins to look like this odd duo might have a chance at a future together, Tony’s enemies strike - and they are not all human. When Sue becomes a prime target, Tony has no choice but let his animal part take charge, and what happens next makes for some breath-holding action and drama with surprises galore.

Famous for their line of fantasy books, publisher Tor recently ventured into the growing world of paranormal romance with C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp's spectacular debut, Shifting Love. With the release of Hunter’s Moon, the second jewel in their crown, it becomes clear this is a series that not only promises but successfully delivers more darker, creative and in-depth paranormal. Take this book for example - this is not your typical werewolf-human romantic story, as the central characters are nowhere near predictable. Neither is the plot. The story is complicated not just by the leading lady’s suicidal tendencies and the scheming antics of her virulent, grasping family, but also by her werewolf lover’s deep involvement in Mafia affairs. The growing psychic bond between them adds yet another dimension to the whole supernatural saga.

With threats looming from all directions, this unlikely pair must quell both inner and external demons, and from this emerges the pivotal suspense as to whether their fledgling love and even their very lives will survive this brutal assault on all fronts and senses. Comprehensive characterizations, dark violence with a deeply romantic core, and uncanny twists in the plot are guaranteed to hold readers enthralled up until the very and again surprising, end. The efforts of author duo C. T. Adams and Cathy Clamp in crafting this exotic new world of Sazi pays off handsomely, and hopefully they’ll take us there again in the near future.
