{Review} of Beneath a Rising Moon by Keri Arthur

Beneath a Rising Moon by Keri Arthur
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Paranormal Romance
THEME: Werewolves
AUTHORS BLOG: Keri Arthur's Site

Keri Arthur, the New York Times bestselling author of the Riley Jenson Guardian series, takes readers to the werewolf reservation of Ripple Creek—where moon fever runs high and a savage murderer runs rampant.

There’s no turning back for Neva Grant. To find a killer, she must seduce the boldest male in the Sinclair pack. Her twin sister lies in a hospital bed, fighting for her life, the fourth and only surviving victim of a vicious attacker. The werewolf rangers suspect the Sinclair pack, and the only way Neva can infiltrate their close-knit ranks is to unleash the wildness within and offer herself to Duncan Sinclair.

Duncan’s appetite for women is legendary on the reservation. But when this new woman stirs his hunger, he finds his desire for her goes deeper than anything he’s ever felt before. When he realizes that she’s playing a game and he’s taken the bait, he is determined to push her to the breaking point. As Duncan and Neva engage in a dangerous dance, they must somehow find a way to join forces—before a cornered killer bites back.

I’ve been such a big fan of Keri Arthur ever since I finished the Riley Jenson series; I was happy to hear about the re-release of Beneath a Rising Moon and picked it up immediately. The lead female character has the toughness of Riley but other than that I liked the differences in the leads and of course the romance.

Beneath a Rising Moon follows Neva Grant, who has made a tough decision, infiltrate the Sinclair pack and track down the person who attacked her twin sister. But she’s about to meet one man who makes her mission so much harder, the bad boy of the pack Duncan Sinclair. In the end they both are looking for the same answers and both don’t realize the connection they have. With danger, love and hunger in the midst they need to work together before the killer strikes again.

Arthur created another fantastic tough and very smart female character in Neva. She has strong psychic abilities and an unbreakable connection with her twin, that makes her very dangerous. Even though this story focused a lot of Duncan and Neva as a couple, I really enjoyed the sisterly bond and love that Neva and Savannah have. They even have each other’s backs when their parents are against Neva’s decisions. Neva is a family girl and she would do anything for them even seduce Duncan who lives up to every rumor.

Duncan is the type of guy that makes girls not only weak in the knees but also even want to run away from…or let chase them. He’s the ultimate bad boy in all the right ways. I loved his cocky and hardcore attitude but as always in a man, he has the soft side that I love. He too is like Neva and very devoted to protecting his family, he has many brothers who are in danger and that are very wreak less. In the end he and Neva have some extremely hot and steamy scenes together.

Overall I enjoyed the mystery of the killer, even though I had a good idea about who it was, I didn’t know their reasons behind it. The pack life was discussed in a lot of depth and each pack was very different. The romance was better than ever and trust me when I say you may need a fan handy because the scenes get hot.

This is a paranormal romance with sexual content that is suitable for adults. Fans of Karen MacInerney of Tales of an Urban Werewolf and Caitlin Kittredge of Nocturne City will love Beneath a Rising Moon by Keri Arthur.
