"Great werewolf story"
In Silver Valley, North Carolina, Hadden McNeal waits at
the altar, but his bride to be Miranda Slate fails to show
up. Instead her grandmother Elizabeth arrives with a note
saying she changed her mind because she does not love him.
Hadden confronts Miranda, who canceled the marriage when
that very day she changed into a werewolf. Though a half-
breed, she cannot halt the metastasis into a wolf when the
moon rises. Skeptical Hadden accepts the truth declaring
he will help Miranda though he does not know how.
Purebred loup garou Drake Guignard has come for Miranda to
complete the vow her mother broke years ago. While he
looks forward to her becoming his bride and savior of the
divided pack, his wanton killing of humans horrifies her.
Still she craves fresh meat and mankind is choice cuts.
Miranda rejects Drake and turns to Hadden for help. They
visit a mountain witch while Drake begins a reign of terror
to force her to acquiesce.
MOONLIGHT LEGACY is a delightful werewolf romance that fans
will enjoy because Jewel Dartt insures the transformation
of Miranda and the full-blooded Drake seem like real
species. The story line is a take on good vs. evil with
the twist that Drake's belief in werewolf superior to Homo
sapiens turns humanity into a giant stockyard for him and
his kind. Though his best friend is to conveniently an
expert on the supernatural, Hadden is a wonderful hero
willing to risk his life for his beloved. Ms. Dartt
provides a strong paranormal tale that will keep North
Carolina residents indoors when the bad moon arises.
