On the werewolf reservation of Ripple Creek, a killer is on the loose. Three women are dead, their bodies mutilated and faces slashed. A fourth, Neva Grant's twin, lies in the hospital, fighting for her life.Psychically linked, Neva shared the horror of her twin attack and makes a silent vow by her sister's hospital bed. She'll hunt down the killer, if Savannah finds the strength to live.The Rangers believe the killer is a member of the Sinclair pack, but Neva knows the Sinclairs will never talk to an outsider. To begin the hunt, she first has to seduce a Sinclair--and then she has to keep him interested long enough to find the killer. The only Sinclair not under suspicion is a wolf with a hard drinking, hard loving reputation. But has she got what it takes to attract a man with such experience? Neva doesn't know, but for her sister's sake, she has to try. Duncan Sinclair has been called back home to find a killer, and he wants nothing more than to complete his task and get out of the town for which he has no love. Then he's approached by a wolf who obviously has more than seduction on her mind, and he finds himself ensnared in a growing web of desire and deceit.As the murders continue and the killer's shadow draws ever closer, Duncan and Neva find themselves having to trust each other in order to survive. But can they trust the emotions flaring between them? Or will the lies of the present, the deeds of the past, and a killer's bloody intentions tear them apart?
Amber R's Thoughts
Oh, Keri Arthur, you've done it again. I thought I had read the best of the best with the Riley Jenson Guardian and the Dark Angels series. But no, Keri had enthralled me again. I absolutely loved this book. I'm already impatiently waiting for the next in the series.
The attraction between Neva and Duncan is electric. At first neither of them trust the other. Neva doesn't trust Duncan because of his wild past and because his pack is under suspicion of the murders that are going on. Duncan doesn't trust Neva because he knows that she came to the moon dance under false pretense. It's all kind of cat and mouse with them. And they both take turns being the mouse. I was so wrapped up in this story, I couldn't put it down. I needed to know what happened and immediately.
Not too mention their sexy times are ridiculous. As in, ridiculously hot! I literally started fanning myself at one point. You guys have to check this book out. It's so good. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Amber I's Thoughts
I have to say this was a 5 star read for me! I was kinda in a reading slump for over a week. I just could not get into any books. Then this came along and well WOW, it totally got to me. I was in love with it. I gobbled this book as fast as I can and I am now missing this world. I love Keri Arthur so much!! Her books just always rock!
The chemistry between Neva and Duncan is freaking HOT! I was drooling when these two were getting frisky. Duncan is just this strong ass alpha male and great in bed. He can be an ass too. Why I like the guys in my books to have a little ass like quality I don't know, but I find them way hotter then the nice guys. Anyways back to the story....
Okay I am glad Amber R. reviewed this because while I might be back to reading, my reviewing skills are sucking right now. So let me ask you do you like werewolves? hot hot sex? action? mystery? a great story? romance? Well if you answered yes to any of the above then you need to read this book. And if you didn't answer yes to any of the above you are probably on the wrong blog because I think most of our books have a lot of those things.
So go check out Beneath a Rising Moon, you won't regret it!( P.S Its on Netgalley)
