Entertaining and exciting, POWER OF THE MOON is the best paranormal panty ripper I have read in a very long time!
It is no secret that the moon holds special powers and influences in many aspects of our daily life. Miakoda Starr is different from all the others and has come to accept that she cannot escape the power she possesses. Instead of embracing her gifts, she secludes herself from others to avoid the ridicule that is sure to accompany their attentions. Mia is not exactly sure what she is, but she knows it is not normal to have the ability to tell when death is coming for someone and she knows it is not normal to be able to read a person's aura like the average person reads a street sign.
In an attempt to save a homeless man from certain death, Mia finds herself in the middle of a paranormal standoff that has been brewing for more than a century and she has to learn how to embrace the power of the moon in order to battle the evil that lurks in the darkness.
Imagine a life where you hold the power of the moon within you – you can control things on Earth much like the moon does. Detective Cole Barnett is controlled masculinity personified. From the first moment he meets Mia, he feels the gravitational pull and knows she is meant for him, but Mia has been alone for way too long to succumb to his charm and good looks without a fight – she refuses to believe in love at first sight. Cole is virtually invincible when it comes to everything except for Mia. He has a body of steel and the patience of a saint, but she tests his self-control every second they are together. Mia holds the power and she really makes him work for it!
POWER OF THE MOON is a full-length novel with a unique plot and well-developed characters. Unlike so many of the paranormal reads of today, POWER OF THE MOON forces readers to beg for a little nookie and I love that! Tina Carreiro does a magnificent job drawing out the sexual tension, really giving the reader something to look forward to as opposed to jumping straight into the sack. If you are craving a great paranormal read, then you should definitely check out POWER OF THE MOON—you are sure to be sucked in from the very beginning!
