Once the seeds of desire are sown . . .
Finally free of her suffocating marriage, widow Daisy Ellis Craigmore is ready to embrace the pleasures of life that have long been denied her. Yet her new-found freedom is short lived. A string of unexplained murders has brought danger to Daisy's door, forcing her to turn to the most unlikely of saviors . . .

Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup, has spent lifetimes hiding his primal nature from London society. But now a vicious killer threatens to expose his secrets. Ian must step out of the shadows and protect the beautiful, fearless Daisy, who awakens in him desires he thought long dead. As their quest to unmask the villain draws them closer together, Daisy has no choice but to reveal her own startling secret, and Ian must face the undeniable truth: Losing his heart to Daisy may be the only way to save his soul.

Amber R.'s Thoughts

After reading Firelight I was really excited to read Moonlight. I was slightly apprehensive though because I loved Archer and Miranda but I have to say that I loved this book just as much as the first.

Ian and Daisy immediately have a connection and a fun relationship. I like seeing them joke and bicker back and forth. They are so much fun together. I like that Daisy doesn't back down from Ian, even when he's trying to push her away. They both have issues from previous relationships that they are trying to work through. However, they are able to come together by communicating and they start to trust each other.

Although seeing their relationship blossom was fun that wasn't the only thing going on in the book. There was all kinds of stuff happening. Main thing being that there is a werewolf on the loose in London who is wreaking havoc. Daisy was almost a victim and Ian is on the hunt for the were. Not to mention, Ian's brother the Ranulf, isn't trying to help control the were which he should be. And Ian is facing pressure from different sides to challenge his brother for place of leader of the Ranulf clan. Besides the fact, it looks like Miranda might not be the only one out of the sisters with a special affinity. There is all kinds of action in the book.

We've got romance, action, and paranormals, what else could you want? This book is fast paced and riveting. It holds your attention and you don't want to put it down. If you've read and loved Firelight then you'll definitely love this book. Also, if you haven't read it believe me when I say that this will be one of your favorite series of 2012.

Amber I's Thoughts

I was in over the top love with Firelight! It was and is my most favorite book I have read this year, so I thought nothing at all could top that and WOW did Moonglow come in and just sit its pretty little self next to Firelight and share in all its glory!! UMM if you are not understanding what I am saying, I am saying I LOVED Moonglow just as much as Firelight.

Often when an author keeps to the same series but switches characters you kinda get the same book just with new people, but not in this series. Moonglow was completely its own book with new things happening and nothing was like it was for Miranda and Archer. Plus we go deeper into the paranormal world! Moonglow was just a breath of fresh air. Nothing goes the way you think its going to go. There was so many surprises and things I never would have even guessed coming.

Daisy and Ian are amazing together. They are both flirty and funny and always try and one up each other. I loved their bantering. I really loved them riding in a carriage together but I don't think I should really get into that right now. The Ian and Daisy we seen in Firelight is a lot different.

Moonglow kept me flipping the pages as fast as I could. Every time I would tell myself I was going to take a break at the end of this chapter I just couldn't. It was sexy, suspenseful and always throwing surprises my way. The only thing that would have made it even more amazing is if Ian wore a kilt! I loved hearing his scottish coming out and calling her lass. I even loved him always threatening to take her over his knee. *Moving on again, sorry I get distracted*

I am really hoping we get more with Ian and Daisy!! Even more with Miranda and Archer! I just do not want to see these characters go yet. So if you see this Kristen Callihan, be a nice author and keep their stories going. Please!

  1. I read and reviewed this book too, and loved it, BUT you have the names wrong, its Daisy and Ian, NOT her sister Poppy, Poppy is married to Winston Lane, and her story is in the 3rd book called Winterblaze. You guys may want to edit your post. Just pointing that out. You can even see in the summary the name is Daisy Craigmore, who is now a widow, and gets together with Ian. I can't wait to read Winterblaze, but have a bit of a wait. :)

    1. I have no idea how I wrote the wrong name. No idea at all!! I know her name is Daisy. Well its fixed now.

  2. Yay! loved this book as well even if I think I have a preference for firelight. but I really love the cover and the characters are very interesting, I really want to read book 3 now. great reviews!

    1. thanks. I love the covers. I can't wait for the next book.

  3. Great thoughts ladies. This is a series I have been looking forward to reading! :o)

    1. I can't believe you haven't read these books yet. You really must go and do that now!

  4. Eeep! This is on my TBR this week, but haven't gotten round to it. Psh! Glad to know you loved it, that gives me comfort that I won't be stuck with something crappy.
