Review: Ruled By the Moon (Nocturne #1) by Naomi Bellina

A psychic vet, a secretive werewolf, a menace stalking the shifters … welcome to Nocturne. Magic, mystery, and sizzling passion fill the pages of Ruled By the Moon, Book 1 of Naomi Bellina’s hot new paranormal series, Nocturne.

Dylan is a werewolf with a problem. He shifts at the new moon as well as the full moon. He was born a werewolf, not made like most shape-shifters. Due to these unique traits, he’s avoided joining a pack and has given up hope of having a normal life. Morgan is a veterinarian, ready to be on her own for a good long time after leaving a cheating, spineless husband. She has a plan for her life that doesn’t include a bossy, furry man.

Both are drawn to Nocturne, a town filled with magic due to a strong convergence of ley lines in the area. Morgan and Dylan recognize a connection when they meet, but neither one is looking for romance. After a harrowing encounter with a panther shape-shifter, they must combine forces and work together to uncover a menace that threatens the town. If they can learn to trust each other and let their guard down, they have a chance to solve the mystery and open the door to love.

Dylan has a secret he has no plans of sharing ever and Morgan is a veterinarian whose plans do not include bossy furry men, both are drawn to a town full of mystery and magic in this mesmerizing paranormal romance.

Dylan’s werewolf side has a few problems so he stays away from all entanglements whether they be pack or females and Morgan is re-starting her life after a divorce from a cheating and spineless ex and the reader can’t help but get caught up in their story as they both drawn to each other. Sparks fly from the red hot chemistry and from some heated disagreements (they are both pretty stubborn) between these strong compelling characters that grab the reader’s attention and the fast pace and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, excitement and passion.

Something’s going on with the shifter population and Morgan is determined to get to the bottom of it which places her in just as much danger as the shifters which adds lots of spine tingling excitement to the story. The well written scenes and details capture the imagination and the well orchestrated events draw the reader in and bewitch them into reading every last word. Dylan and Morgan both have a little something extra just itching to get out which spices things up quite a bit in the relationship department and a along with surprising twists adds depth to the story.

The magical town fascinates readers and holds them captive just as much as all the intriguing characters and the author has added her own unique and interesting elements to her world that ensure that the readers will want to visit again and again. I was completely enthralled with Morgan and Dylan’s story from the very beginning and I am looking forward to reading the Nocturne adventure – I wonder whose it will be…
