Sisters Charlotte Nichols and Savannah Carpenter were raised by a domineering and abusive parent.
They grew up to rebel in opposite ways, but both chose forbidden lifestyles and were disowned by their family. Having only each other in the world, Savannah decides to move closer to Charlotte in hopes of improving their relationship. When Charlotte is inexplicably injured, Savannah finds clues that make her suspect that her sister was attacked. Caught now in a web of the powerful, rich and deranged, Savannah tries to investigate a secret club that specializes in erotic sexual fantasies. What she didn’t know was that she is also being watched.
Lance Marshall gives new meaning to the term “news hound.” He is a werewolf and as such has the ability to delve farther into investigations than other journalist could ever hope to achieve. When he spies Savannah doing an amateur surveillance job, his world is turned upside down.
Something about the club is dangerously off-key, and the syllables uttered by
Charlotte in her coma are the only two pieces of information Lance and Savannah
have to go on at first. It never enters their minds that they may be dealing with a force greater than even the whole of Lance’s family could handle. But with the aid of Rinna, the outcast hunter, and her friend Haig, they may just have a chance.
Shadow of the Moon involves parties, wild fantasies, and long erotic and exotic sex scenes mixed with multi-universes, werewolves and telekinetic powers. I can’t stress this next warning about the sex scenes enough – there are explicit, detailed scenes that many readers (including myself) may find uncomfortable to read. Many of these involve S&M activities. For myself, I found I was flipping through the scenes as I encountered them, skipping them by so that I could get back to the very interesting story.
It is nice to see that publishing imprint Berkley has put a lot of thought into the cover design.
The ghosted wolf and moon in the background and the gates suggest moments in the story, and the handsome image of Lance
is a nice touch.
Rebecca York, a well-known name in the world of paranormal romance, is a pseudonym under which author Ruth Glick occasionally writes. I
am not only impressed but also a bit awed by the number of books she has written;
believe it or not, this bestselling author has published more than seventy novels.
