REVIEW

"Rebecca York again pens a satisfying romantic intrigue"

Rebecca York (aka Ruth Glick) is an award-winning author of almost 90 books; many romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue. With her captivating story-telling skills now including a paranormal touch, readers will be rewarded when reading her newest story KILLING MOON. Plan on a long night when you read this, as you will not want to put this book down.

Although Detective Jack Thornton appreciates the crime- solving tips, he considers Private Investigator Ross Marshall a 'lone wolf'. Little did the detective know how accurate his thoughts are as Ross is a hereditary werewolf. All girl children die at birth and only half the boys live through 'the change' at puberty. Ross has decided to try medical science hoping to find a solution to this mortality or he refuses choose a mate.

Dr. Megan Sheridan is assigned to a house call to take blood samples for genetic testing for a new client. When she arrives at his isolated home, she finds Ross on the floor, naked and bleeding from an infected bullet wound. She had left her medical practice to become a researcher, but she knew she had to help. Almost immediately she feels the attraction and after several days of nursing him, neither can deny the intense bonding that has begun.

Ross had been shot while finding evidence in his recent investigation of a serial killer. He wants to put distance between himself and Megan not only because of future grief with children but because of the dangers of his job. Then one evening Megan is late at the lab, she is attacked and Ross realizes his need to protect her is the instinct to protect his mate. Now he has the serial killer and lab intrigue to investigate while trying to protect Megan. How can he know where danger will strike next?

I appreciate that Ms. York can build and express the suspense and horror of the serial killer without excess gore. There is not doubt Arnott is shown a true villain. The relationship growing between Ross and Megan is intense and shows an acceptance of human (or werewolf) frailties. Ross' struggle with emotions and his re- evaluation of his past is well done and believable. The growing friendship with Detective Thornton has me hoping to see more of him as I hear this book is the first in a series. (Coming in August read EDGE OF THE MOON and in October read WITCHING MOON.)

SUMMARY

Private investigator Ross Marshall has a special talent for tracking—a talent that has helped him locate missing persons when the police's trial has gone cold. now his current case has led him to a body buried in an isolated rural area—and a serial killer who is looking for a new victim. 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...
