#3 Lucani Lovers Series
book received for review from author
Etruscan wolf shifter Kaine Giliati has longed for John Simmons since he willingly agreed to wipe all memory of her from his mind. The pain in her heart is only magnified by terror—the ability to call her wolf appears to have deserted her, as well.
For months after he and his sister escaped a crazed kidnapper, John has been dreaming about a beautiful woman he’s never met but who seems so familiar. A woman he’s shocked to find in a dark bar one night. A woman who agrees to come back to his apartment for raw, passionate sex.
Edge of Moonlight picks up where Moonlight Ménage leaves off. Kaine is heartbroken after John, a human, willingly agrees to have his memories wiped after the events leading up to his sister’s capture and exposure to the Lucani. Smokinhot Cliff Note: In book #2 Kaine and John meet when his sister Evie was kidnapped. Horrified when he finds out that Kaine is a werewolf he shoots her (that bastard!). Forbidden to make any contact with him, Kaine can’t stop thinking about him until fate decides to intervene.
Meanwhile John is having odd, erotic dreams about a woman with multi-colored hair. After a crap day he winds up at a local bar, only to see the woman he has been dreaming about.
All Kaine wants is just one night with John only their hot hanky panky sessions begins to unravel the memory spell on John and he starts to remember…
This is the most emotionally gripping out of the 3 books so far and my favorite. If you’ve read Kiss of Moonlight and Moonlight Ménage , Edge of Moonlight stands out ahead of its class. Stephanie Julian really hit all my hot buttons:
2. Just the right about of relationship/emotional angst. i.e. not too much, not too little, just right.
There is quite a lot going on in this latest installment so I’m going to diagram it all out for you. I’m talking flow charts, excel spreadsheets, and pie charts (nah, just making sure ya’ll are awake).
- Kaine suddenly is unable to shift after her night with John
- Evie (John’s sister) unleashes her unstable powers and only the wolves can help her
- John starts to remember…Everything!
- Knowing John will be disgusted with her after he ‘remembers’ she is a wolf; Kaine decides to go after Evie’s kidnappers to make everything all right.
Edge of Moonlight is my favorite out of the series. Kaine is one of my favorite types of heroines to read about; funny, self deprecating, and a lady that can and likes to kick a little ass. At times I got a little lump in my throat over her worry when John would find out about her being wolf and his interest would turn to disgust. And there were times when I got a little turned on when they had hot, passionate nookie on the kitchen table. Edge of Moonlight has all the right erotic ingredients and I’m looking forward to more Lucani wolves books.
P.S. Isn’t the cover? Why can’t I have bangs like that….
