Once in a blue moon…
For Rafer Breaux, life in the Louisiana Bayou is harsh, violent—and deeply sensual. The Cajun werewolf lives for his Pack and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep his brothers safe. The longer a wolf lives without a mate, the harder it becomes for that wolf to shift back. To remember that he is a man—and not a monster. And those mates can only be found during a blue moon. When a blue moon finally rises, Rafer will need every weapon in his sensual arsenal to tempt one special woman into his arms and the heart of the Pack.
The Pack hunts for mates
Fighting to keep her family farm, Lark Andrews isn’t looking for love. Even if the very sexy Breaux brothers make her dream of hot bayou nights spent in their arms. When the blue moon leads Rafer to her door, however, Rafer has her rethinking her position on all work and no play. Now, the bayou nights are heating up as Rafer fights to convince her, one sensual touch at a time, to give love and passion a chance. But Rafer isn’t a one wolf deal. Is there room in Lark’s heart—and bed—for Rafer and his Pack?
My review …
This puts a different twist on a para-romance.
Wow wow wow …. I need me a blue moon wolf
This is a SCORCHING hot series, and not to be read in a packed train
Rafer is the main character in this book.
I first I wasn’t sure at the idea that Rafer would share Lark with his brothers. But I total got it as it was established early on that Rafer was utterly devoted to the Pack. They were a dying breed and they were brothers. If sharing his mate prolonged the life of his brothers until they found their own mate, it was plausible. The two scenes were incredibly sensuous and didn’t feel uncomfortable.
Rafer lives for his pack, and was consumed with worry for himself and his brothers, because unlike most para books I’ve read, these males will remain as wolves, if they don’t find their blue moon brides. And that was the twist that made me read on.
Lark, is a gentle soul who owns and runs a flower stall and greenhouse.
And at first is reluctant to entertain Rafer, but as the blue moon approaches, her hormones kick in, and the chase is on.
In these books the female is allowed to choose a mate, so although Rafer technically “caught” Lark, it doesn’t mean he gets to keep her. And a small part of him wants to be kept by this intriguing woman.
And we do meet his brothers in this story, and in fact though the next 2 books, they are all intertwined together, like a proper pack.
The conflict or danger part of the story involved vampires. While lots of books have werewolf/vampire elements, usually they both have redeeming qualities. This book didn’t. The vampires were evil to the bone. And were looking to “wear” the wolves pelts,( this helps them to walk in the sun)!
As the sun sets, then the vamps come out to stalk Lark and the brothers.
As for the naughty scenes in this book, they were done with real love for the characters. (I have read many menages and group books, and some of them totally mess up the love scenes).
She accepts the whole pack as hers. And has a special moment with Dag and Rafer.
It’s a great book to start the series with.
