Welcome to Romance by Moonlight
I’m hugely excited about my BY MOONLIGHT dark paranormal series that debuted through Pocket Books with MASKED BY MOONLIGHT in May, 2010. The series is unique in that the first four books follow the same hero and heroine, Max Savoie and Charlotte Caissie.
And what a pair they make: Fierce, self-sufficient loners drawn together by dangerous circumstance and held by a passion both irresistible and frightening. Troubled by secrets, torn by loyalties and tortured by the love that sustains them, Max and Cee Cee fight for an unexpected chance at happiness against odds impossible to beat. Oh, did I mention he’s a deadly shape-shifter searching for his past and she’s a dedicated cop hiding from her own in a steamy New Orleans backdrop where a criminal empire filled with treacherous alliances, a clan of ferocious Shifters searching for their prophesied leader, and an inescapable fate conspire to pull them apart?
The BY MOONLIGHT world expanded into the SHADOWS with exciting new heroes and heroines who continue to explore and build upon the BY MOONLIGHT storylines and mythology starting with HUNTER OF SHADOWS, SEEKER OF SHADOWS, BETRAYED BY SHADOWS and then PRINCE OF SHADOWS.
In 2014, readers returned to the Moonlight world with Max Savoie and Charlotte Caissie in REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT. And that story continues in 2015 . . .
Here’s what’s waiting for you by Moonlight!
