Even a wild heart can be broken…

A blonde, a brunette and a monster walk into a bar and all hell breaks loose.

It should have been the start of a bad joke, but days from a full moon Xander Cade, Tracker for the Northwest Motoki Pack, finds nothing funny about confronting an enraged Shifter in a crowded Portland nightclub filled with unsuspecting humans. The resulting carnage frays an already thin veil of secrecy shielding the supernatural Kyn community from public scrutiny, and ensures she can’t escape the one man she’s been determined to avoid, her Alpha and mate, Warrick Vidis.  Dominating, protective and compelling, Warrick threatens her individuality like no other.

As the Northwest Alpha wolf, compromise isn’t in Warrick Vidis’s vocabulary, but when his reluctant mate, Xander Cade, refuses to leave off the hunt for a killer, he has no qualms using whoever or whatever necessary to protect her or his pack. A series of unusual deaths involving lone wolves, along with anonymous threats against him and his Pack, begin to jeopardize his normal steely control. Add in Xander’s continual reluctance to fully accept their Soul bond, and the line between intellect and instinct begins to blur, leaving him wondering if one woman’s love and acceptance will be enough to save both man and wolf.

As the danger escalates, threatening not just their Pack but those closest to them, Warrick and Xander must find a way to trust each other and accept their rare bond or risk losing everything-their pack, their friends and each other.

Shadow’s Moon is an intriguing paranormal romance that managed to do the unexpected – it combined two alphas. Both Xander and Warrick are definitely alpha, and while that usually leads to a clash that doesn’t end too well, they make an amazing match here. While Warrick is the most alpha of the two, Xander is rather alpha too, and definitely not happy with just doing whatever Warrick says. Sparks fly off the pages, and that’s a good thing.

The story mixes a mystery involving unusual deaths of lone wolves and threats against the Pack, and a search for who is behind it, with a romance story, and Xander’s reluctance to accept the bond she has with Warrick, and how he struggles to control her, or at least, protect her when danger escalates.

A well-written paranormal romance novel with an interesting plot, plenty of surprises, and a couple I could cheered for from the start.
