Bad Moon

Bad Moon is the second book in the Moonstruck trilogy from author Silver James. From Amazon’s website.~

Former Army sniper Michael Lightfoot lives a simple life as a forest ranger in Wyoming. The job fits his need to run wild when the moon is full—until two special wolf pups are kidnapped, along with Dr. Liz Graham, the wildlife biologist who makes him want to howl. 

The last thing Michael expects when he meets the feisty doctor is to be moonstruck, but the alpha Wolf has more on his plate than just convincing Dr. Liz to love him for who he is. She's being stalked by mercenaries who stole two wolf pups for an unknown faction. Now, with her life in danger, he must reveal his true self to save her. Reuniting with some of his old Army Special Sci Ops unit, Michael takes on the corporate raiders who want more than just his hide—and Liz’s expertise.

Secrets, lies, and betrayals are more personal under the full moon, but when a Wolf loves a woman, he’ll risk heart and soul to keep her.

Warning: When a moonstruck Wolf meets his mate, hot sex will ensue. If his mate is threatened, bad words and violence of the blood and guts variety will definitely occur.

I’m a huge fan of Silver James and was lucky enough to get an early copy of Bad Moon before it was released. I loved it so much, I had to buy a copy for my kindle on release day.

I liked the first book in this series, but loved Michael and Liz’s story even more. Silver again gives her readers two very strong characters. Michael is very protective even before he meets Liz, and once he meets her, his protective instinct goes into over drive. Liz is a strong person, but becomes even stronger when she is kidnapped along with two wolf pups. Michael is drawn to Liz from the moment he sees her, and knows he has met his mate from the very first. Liz is also attracted to Michael, and wants him every bit as much as he wants her. They have really great chemistry together. Of course, alpha wolf Michael fails to share one important bit of information with Liz and ends up freaking her out a bit.

We get to see Mac and Hannah again in this book, as well as Sean, who Silver has promised will get his story too.  Bad Moon pulled many emotions out of me. It was filled with passion, mystery, tender moments, and even a few tears. Michael and Liz are a wonderful couple and I look forward to seeing them in future books in the Moonstruck series.
