"Delightful supernatural private investigator romance"

Private Investigator Ross Maxwell seeks evidence against human predators in which the cops are stymied. Currently he chases serial killer Donald Arnott. Ross cuts a hole big enough for a dog to fit through in the perimeter fence surrounding the property of his target. Ross shapeshifts into a wolf and passes through the breach he created. However, bad luck occurs, as Donald happens to be outside. He shoots Ross, who manages to escape in spite of the wound.

The next day genetic research scientist Megan Sheridan of Bio Gen Labs visits client Ross at his home to do a work up on him. She finds him feverish from his wound so she cleans the wound, provides the antibiotic that he happens to need, and puts on fresh bandages. As he heals Ross worries because he knows Arnott stalks him, the Montgomery County, Maryland police suspect him in a murder investigation, and the CEO of Megan's company is acting strange. Still, Ross is angriest with Megan for not fleeing him because wolves mate for life, something he fears after what his dad did to his mom.

Using the premise that lycanthropy is a genetic disorder, KILLING MOON is a delightful supernatural private investigator romance starring two charming lead characters. The plot moves at a rapid pace though Arnott showing restraint seems off kilter. Ross is a wonderful protagonist struggling with his need for his life mate and his fear of the harm he will do to her. Megan is a courageous counterpoint who brings out the best in the beast. Sub-genre fans will relish Rebecca York's tale that makes a human species of werewolves.

But while gathering evidence for the police, something goes very wrong...

The last thing genetic researcher Megan Sheridan expected was to discover her client shot and unconscious. Ross Marshall had requested her lab to run genetic tests on him, but instead of taking a blood sample, Megan found herself tending his wounds. Although frightened by secrets she knows he's hiding, Megan is compelled to him by a force she can't explain—or resist. Ross tried to deny the ancient instincts clamoring for him to take Megan as his mate, for to do so would sentence her to a lifetime of sorrow. But now Ross has an even more urgent reason to stay away from Megan: the killer that he's been hunting has turned the tables—and is now hunting him...
