Bound by Moonlight (Moonlight #4) by Nancy Gideon

Tuesday, July 26, 2011
They swore they’d be together forever Detective Charlotte Caissie is suddenly sharing drawer space and making media news with her shape-shifter lover Max Savoie.
Knowing the reformed mobster is determined to be accepted by her peers, how can she ask him to return to his criminal roots to help her solve a complex case?

But those they trust the most . . .

Going undercover to find the vicious serial killer who kidnapped a colleague’s daughter, Cee Cee is caught between the partner whose integrity she relies on and her fiercely possessive lover. In calling on Max to use his preternatural talents to aide a hated enemy, she crosses a line that strains their relationship to its limits.

Will do anything to tear them apart

With his secret spreading beyond those he can trust, Max is forced to make dangerous alliances to protect his family and his clan. The only certainty he has is his love for his human mate, until the loyalties that define them threaten to divide them forever.

Good Reads Summary

If you are a reader who enjoys passionate encounters and steamy love scenes than this is the book for you.  The characters are right on for a great romance.  A cute, pretty heroine who is deeply in love with the male character; a male character who is handsome and strong beyond reason.  The reader will be rooting for the couple through the entire book.  The loves scenes are explicit, but they are not half-measures; the author can make the reader feel the atmosphere and picture him/herself as one of the characters. 

The plot, while not particularly innovative, is more than satisfactory for keeping the readers' interest and the pages turning.  The reader will be immersed in a world where shape-shifting is possible and mixed with the typical human world.  The book if a quick read and the dialogue ranges from humorous to deadly serious.  The author doesn't skip over highly emotional scenes, but plays them out realistically.  The dynamics between the differing characters is believable and there is a fine line of tension that the reader will be able to sense throughout the book-perfect, as the book concerns a detective. 

The ending is great, as is typical in love stories.  A reader who enjoys romance will be more than happy she/he bought and read this novel.
