Lucas Blackmane has no illusions about himself. He’s Wulfren and on the cusp of turning feral. He may be the most powerful werewolf on two continents, but without a mate, his days are numbered. Hey, but that’s okay. He’s accepted that finding his mate just isn’t in the cards. Which is why he’s totally blindsided when a witchy woman with blood in her eyes and a heavenly scent walks into his casino and turns his world upside down.

Alisha Leveau is Sosye, which is just another way of saying she’s a badass witch with attitude. She doesn’t like the Wulfren, even if her adopted brother is one, and the hairy-ass predators had better hand him over or she’ll give them plenty of reason to howl at the moon.

So how the hell did she end up in Blackmane’s bed?

Alisha Leveau will stop at nothing to get answers regarding why her brother is being held on Salinas Island. Alisha has tried playing nice by calling to get answers into her brother’s disappearance but after being put on hold, or told Mr. Blackmane is unavailable she puts on her big girl attitude and goes to see Mr. Supreme Alpha of the North American Pack himself. Yes he’s Wulfen; all that…and then some. Alisha finds Lucas Blackmane brutishly handsome, powerfully built and enough Wulfren pheromones to make every woman and even some men take a second look.

But scratch all that, Alisha must stay focused because nobody gets away with messing with her family. Alisha has her moment to speak with Lucas, her being a Sosye Wiccan she could show her powers but she know they couldn’t frighten Lucas into giving over her brother. Lucas powers are much more than Alisha bargained for. Lucas has an interest in Alisha and calls it a truce and allows her to see her brother.

Alisha’s brother, Alan Leveau has been sentenced to execution for killing a local that lives on the island. Alisha knows this can’t be true. Lucas negotiates to delay Alan’s execution if she agree to his terms…that he can have her whenever, wherever, and however he wants.

This is my first book of this type and I really enjoyed it. I found it very readable and genuinely mystical. I was instantly taken with the story and became a part of the characters. Danger, romance and magic were all in this light imaginary world of Wulfren versus Wiccan. The novel was easy to follow; the author did not have a complex plot that was hard to follow.

The author did a good job on the character development. I enjoyed the spunky personality of Alisha. She was a likable character, and I found myself in her favor. The character’s were well described and were a joy to read their interactions with each other. The characters connected with a chemistry that made the romantic side of things tend to be quiet sexy. The bedroom scenes were hot. The novel has a good story line that kept my interest.

If you are looking for a quick magical romance Creole Moon is an impressive book that is sure to please.
