57) Crave the Moon by Lori Handeland

The Blurb :

Gina O’Neill will do anything to hold on to her beloved ranch that has been in her family for generations. Enter Mateo Mecate, an archeologist whose greatest wish is to dig there. Prepared to despise Matt—and to thwart his agenda—Gina cannot deny the shocking desire she feels for him.

Matt believes that the Nahua Springs Ranch holds an important key to Aztec history—one that will restore his standing in the archeological community. But he never expects to go head-to-head with the maddeningly sensuous owner, Gina. The ranch seems to have cast a spell on them both…

When Gina and Matt delve into the secrets of this ancient place, they awaken something unspeakably evil—a shapeshifter who is centuries old. A werewolf with vengeance on its mind. A sorcerer of incredible power. Can Gina and Matt defeat this enemy—even as their conflicts deepen…and their attraction grows more dangerous?

My Thoughts :

I haven't visited the Nightcreature series for a while but my Kindle got updated and it was a pain to find anything on their this morning so I just picked a book at random.  Crave the Moon won and I am happy to say it was a good choice.  The series has been going for quite a while now and Lori Handeland if a great storyteller.  Her stories have depth and she really goes to great lengths to build her work around a topic that is not only interesting but one that will capture your attention.

This time around the theme was Aztec.  I am not a big history buff but I think the author, once again, did her homework and researched the topic well before using it for this book.  It was a nice theme and it had me hooked within a few chapters.  I was eager to find out how it all fit in with the common subject in this series, werewolves.

The main characters were lovely from the get go and I was cheering for them the whole way.  Of course, as with any romance, it is obvious how things will end but how the couple get there is the big question that keeps people reading till the last page.  However the whole book was interesting enough to keep me reading till the end and I remembered how much I like this series.   This wasn't by far my favourite but it was still a great read and an easy one.

Crave the Moon is the eleventh book in the series but the books, if I remember correctly, can all be read out of order.  I am sure it is better to read them in order just in case but looking back over my Goodreads page it seems I haven't read book ten but it wasn't a problem.

Well worth reading if you like Paranormal Romances.  The lovey dovey aspect isn't too heavy except for near the end and the characters are nice to get to know.  If you like werewolves then this is also a nice series to follow.  It has a lot of history built into it and there is a mystery angle too so there is a bit of something for everyone.
