"Highland werewolf romance of love and deception. Highly recommended!"

Unbeknownst to Abigail, she has been betrothed to Talorc, the werewolf leader of the Sinclair Clan. Abigail must take the place of her sister, who did not marry Talorc, but chose the leader of another clan instead. Although she wants to get away from her abusive mother, she is afraid of Talorc and what will happen to her when his clan discovers her secret: she is deaf. Most of the English find her deafness a sign of demon possession. Even though she hides it well, she is considered unfit as a bride for most English marriages. Hence, she has been promised to the Scot Highlander.

Talorc is not happy about being forced into marriage. The previous attempt by his king to marry him off turned disastrous. When he meets Abigail, he immediately feels the need to protect her and soon a strong bond is formed between them. Unfortunately, he does not believe he can trust her with his deepest secret: he is a werewolf.

Can their relationship survive their deceit? Will their budding love be enough to keep them together?

First things first, I loved this book! Abigail is a lovely character, full of strength and delicacy. She is continually faced with adversity, but holds her head high with confidence. When meeting Talorc, she needs all the confidence she has as he is staggeringly handsome, but scary. On the other, Talorc is definitely the alpha male. His affection for Abigail is very sweet and soon enough he falls hard for Abigail.

As well as having strong, likable characters, the pacing of Moon Craving is well done. The story pushes towards resolution with few, if any, slow parts. My only complaint is I wanted Abigail to be more upset with Talorc when she discovers he is a werewolf. But, Abigail handles the situation in a fashion that is consistent with her character. Therefore, this complaint is minimal and does not take away from the overall story.

As I said before and will say again: I loved this book! The central plot of the relationship between Talorc and Abigail is thoroughly enjoyable and more than enough to fill the pages of a book. I highly recommend Moon Craving and eagerly look forward to future stories in this series.

When Talorc-laird of the Sinclair clan and leader of his werewolf pack- must wed an Englishwoman, he's shocked to find that she is his mate.

But when Abigail learns that the husband she's begun to love has deceived her, it will take all his warrior's strength-and his wolf's cunning-to win his wife back.
