Masked by Moonlight

BY MOONLIGHT series Book 1


All She Wants Is Revenge

Homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is dedicated to bringing down the crime boss responsible for her father’s murder. Using Jimmy Legere’s right hand man is a dangerous gamble, not just because of his ruthless reputation as more monster than man, but because her feelings for her mysterious and irresistible enemy are complicated. There’s just something about Max.

Then He Risks His Life to Save Hers

Rescued from the swamps as a child, Max Savoie owes Jimmy Legere his life. Existing silently in his rescuer’s shadow, he heeds only one voice. Until Charlotte Caissie awakens his emotions and tests his loyalties. Forced to step outside his cautious rules to save her, he risks more than his heart . . . he risks exposing his dark secret.

Now, They’re Both In Over Their Heads

Working together means facing the truth about who and what they are, and what they need from one another. If Max is the murderer she seeks, Cee Cee might be his next victim. She can’t afford to trust any man. Good thing Max isn’t one.

“Mix Romeo & Juliet with Beauty and the Beast. Like great Shakespearan tragedy, Nancy Gideon uses humongous obstacles and unfathomable problems to make this an outstanding story with mega conflicts. The sexual chemistry sizzles on the pages. This is one tale you will not want to miss, and I cannot wait for the next book! Five Cup-Extraordinary!”

“Gideon definitely cloaks this tale in darkness and shadows. MASKED BY MOONLIGHT is more than a scary werewolf tale. It is a steamy romance; a whodunit; a story of intrigue and power.”

Romance Reader at Heart Top Pick!

“A paranormal novel with a very modern twist. I loved the character of Max Savoie, his portrayal as the ultimate predator hidden under a veneer of civility and his ultimate faith and devotion were both heartwarming and heartbreaking. The paranormal theme is cleverly used to enhance a deeper story-line. Highly recommended!”

“I glanced at the cover and decided it would be a fun “fluff” read. I was wrong! I was pulled into the intrigue in the first chapter. The suspense kept me reading until the last page. With characters that captured my heart, suspense, and romance, MASKED BY MOONLIGHT has earned a place on my bookshelf.”

Best Fantasy Stories


“Well written with smooth flowing story lines that intersected dramatically. Characters are well developed and leap off the pages. I absolutely adored our hero Max. Plenty of action kept the pages turning. I read this book in one sitting. I had to force myself not to skip ahead to assure myself all would end well. A character driven story of anguish and betrayal. I found myself immersed into their lives as though I was there with them. I will definitely read the next in the series as I am most interested in where Ms. Gideon takes Max and Charlotte.”

“A fantastic beginning to the MOONLIGHT series. I loved Max Savoie. He was different thann your typical paranormal romance hero. Sure he was sexy, protective and strong, but he also seemed vulnerable. I thought Max’s shifting ability was unique. This dark, suspenseful tale should not be missed. 5-Stars!”
