Aug 5, 2011

 Book 4 in the Moonlight Series

Police Detective Charlotte Caissie and her shape-shifting paramour Max Savoie
thought the past was behind them, but in Nancy Gideon’s
irresistible new romance, they discover it may never let them go…


Detective Charlotte Caissie is suddenly sharing drawer space and making local news with her shape-shifter lover, Max Savoie. He’s determined to be accepted by her peers—so how can she ask him to return to his criminal roots to help her solve a complex case?


Working undercover with her partner to find the serial killer who’s kidnapped a colleague’s daughter, Cee Cee is caught between her job and her fiercely possessive lover. And when she calls on Max’s preternatural talents to aid his hated enemy, she crosses a line that strains their relationship to its limit.


With his secret spreading, Max is forced to protect his family and his clan. The only certainty is his love for his human mate . . . unless the loyalties that define them divide them forever.

 I gave this book a 5


Glorious!  Nonpareil! Delicious! Bound by Moonlight by Nancy Gideon is the cornucopia of a thrilling paranormal romance.  Gideon’s bold characters will leave you with a story to cherish. Her ability to capture and reflect the complex elements in human nature are masterful.  Max Savoie is the epitome of what a alpha character should be.  He has the ability to melt you with just a look!  Cee Cee’s character is complex and believable,  she comes alive on the pages.   Nancy Gideon has weaved an incredible story by which the only outcome is intense cravings for more, and more she delivers.  Undeniably, hands down, one of the best paranormal books of the year!  Followers of the series will only rage for more.  Gideon will leave you hanging on her every word! 

As you can see, I can’t say enough about this book and the series.  Everything about this book and series calls to me.  I highly recommend this series.  I want to say more, but don’t want to ruin it for those who have yet to read it.

Below is a short recap of my history with Max.  It’s silly and pretentious,but I thought you might have a laugh over it!

        Last summer I found this one vibrant book on the shelf and took it home.  It was the beginning of a summer love affair.  His name was Max, and I haven’t been the same since.   I stalked the book shelves for more of this elusive creature. I waited with a tightly reigned desire for him to make another summer appearance late in July. Oh, the joy of having him all to myself was indescribable!  July had never been sweeter, but, alas, it all came to an end, Max belonged to  another. As difficult as it was, I understood.  His promises of seeing me the following July were sincere and heartfelt.   Even though I knew I’d never be the same again, I embraced the thought of a cold and lonely year without him.
      As this summer began I was giddy with just the thought or mention of him.   I didn’t know if I was going to be able to stand the wait.  He was so near, yet so far away.  If I could have traveled through time, he would have been mine sooner.   On the day of his arrival on my doorstep, I was inconsolable.   I was ecstatic, I kissed him, caressed him and ran around the house with him in my arms.  I had waited all year for this moment and nothing was going to stop me from being with him.  
    Sadly our time side by side came to an end.  We had such a short time together, but it was one of the most cherished moments of the year.  I hung on to his every word, I smiled at his antics, and shared in all his emotions. I found myself trying to preserve everything to memory, for when he would no longer be with me.  As we said our good-byes, he promised he would visit again, but we both knew it would never be the same.

* Special thanks to Nancy Gideon!  Your books bring me joy!

  1. Lovely post Dana, and I do know how you feel, one book a year isn't nearly enough! Okay, okay, I will start reading soon, promise! Yesterday I opened my first Jess Haines book, but Nany will be next.

  2. Tengo miedo sobre "Fright Night" parece como un filma de horror. Viste en twitter que comprabamos un Tortilla press hoy y tomo una pina colada a una bara en la "ciudad?"

    Para hacer las tortillas es muy facil.
    Esta noche voy a ver True Blood y espero que no "succumb to" dormir antes de ques escribo sobre esto.


I just love hearing what you have to say. Drop me a few lines. 8-D
