A "Midnight Justice" Story
It's a dark and stormy night, and Luna Masters is in trouble. Buttoned-up court reporter by day, by night she fights crime as Luminescence, drawing power from the moon. No moon, no power...and she's about to pay with her life.
As her consciousness dims, a man steps from the shadows. But he's no savior. It's Scythe, a villain whose reputation for evil is legend. When she awakens, at first she's surprised to be alive. Then enraged to find herself tied to his bed. Naked.
Scythe is livid. A minor superhero like Luna has no business on his turf, and he plans to enjoy administering punishment, Yet somewhere in the night, pain turns into pleasure...then into something wicked and sexy that shakes them both to the core.
Though Scythe warns her away, Luna's passion for justice draws her back into the dark, to her masked lover's side. For good, or evil? Only the dawn will tell...
Warning: "Pow " In the clash of good versus evil, villains don't play nicely. "Bam " When captured, superheroines often get tied up. "Kablooie " Hot sex may cause mayhem with your e-reader.
Blade of Moonlight was definitely a darker and more intense read in the superhero romance books. Apart of the Midnight Justice Anthology, I enjoyed going back into the word where superheroes exist and that the bad guys aren’t always the bad guys. Kimberly Dean writes an interesting twist to the superheroes and villains.

Luna Masters is not the biggest of the superheroes around, her power is drawn only from the moon and unfortunately the night she decides to take down the bad guys, the moon is gone. But when she wakes up and is face to face with the most evil of villains, Scythe, she’s not quite sure what he’s going to do to her. But Scythe himself isn’t as evil as everyone thinks he is and Luna seems to be the only one able to push her way through all the darkness that surrounds him.

Luna is a tough girl; she isn’t given much credit for being a superhero because she’s only known for having a bit of power. But she learns that she actually has more to her power than she ever thought and Scythe is the one who brings it out in her. The readers get to see Luna as a superhero and working in her regular job, I always find it interesting to see what job they can do outside being a superhero. They also get a little insight into her past and how she came to have the power of the moon.

Scythe is a whole lot of tough, dark and wonderfully dangerous villain. He and Luna build this connection that turns into one smoking hot relationship. They both feed of each other not only in the bedroom but help each other stop the real bad guys. I loved his power, kind of reminded me of batman, he wasn’t all about power but strength and using his weapon. I would of liked to get more about his past, but maybe that’s suppose to be a mystery.

Overall this was definitely a novel for a more mature audience but still had enough of a story outside of the bedroom to be entertaining. I wished the story as a whole was a bit longer but nonetheless I enjoyed the two opposite heroes figuring out that they could work together.

This is an adult novel with sexual content that is meant for a mature reader. Fans of the writings of author Moira Rogers and Jodi Redford will love Blade of Moonlight by Kimberly Dean.
