Lycae Wolfe Trevlian returns to New Orleans to appease the vampyren harboring a grudge against his kin. The agreement is simple – destroy the creature killing off their brethren and the death of their Master is forgiven.
Dhampir Arden Moran has waited decades to avenge the murder of her friend. There is just one problem – the Lycae sent to intercept her.
One touch tells Wolfe that Arden is his mate. When vampyren hire assassins to finish the job he didn't complete, he is forced to become an Alpha strong enough to protect her - as well as the pack that needs him.
Sometimes the past is meant to stay in the past. Other times someone has to make up for the past. When it comes to the story of Arden and Wolfe, the past is very important, but might be better left forgotten when the future is so much sexier. Want to know more? Then read Soft As Moonlight.
JA Saare writes great paranormal stories. The way she intertwines characters and brings back ones from other stories keeps the reader enthralled right through to the last page. Her males are strong and captivating, while the heroines aren’t afraid to kick some serious butt. I love an independent heroine.
I like how Saare interweaves the types of vampires and paranormal creatures to make her characters. Instead of magically explaining away how her vamps walk in sunlight, she creates a new order. In my opinion, it’s unique and fun.
Now the love scenes in this story sizzle, even if they come a bit quick. I so wanted to see Wolfe take her, but I found his restraint sexier. I also love how Arden wants to want him, wants to hate him, and can’t ignore her baser instincts to take him. Whew! Where’s the cold shower?
If you want a story that’s guaranteed to make you squirm and sizzle, then you need to read Soft As Moonlight. I give this novella 5 cherries.
