Review: Kiss of Moonlight (Lucani Lovers #1) by Stephanie Julian
Title: Kiss of Moonlight
Plagued by nightmares. Stalked by kidnappers. Tamra McMillan needs a safe haven. When tattooed bad-ass Kyle Rossini steps into her life, the last thing she expects to find is a sanctuary from her demons in his arms. In fact, everything about him screams danger. But appearances can be deceiving. The tender possessiveness of his touch, the hunger in his eyes, the scorching sensuality of his kiss... He wants to brand her as his for life.
Etruscan werewolf Kyle is a loner. The king’s assassin with a killer’s instincts. The last thing he needs is a mate who could be placed in danger because of him. Until he meets the one woman who needs him more than he needs his solitude. When Tamra, battered but not broken, stumbles into his world and tumbles into his bed, she captures his heart. And nothing—not kidnappers or visions of his possible death—will keep him from her.

I received this book for free from the Publisher or Author in exchange for an honest review, or I purchased it with my own funds. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Julian’s lucani (wolf shifter) characters have a large presence in What a Goddess Wants.
I found them very interesting and just had to find out more about them. It makes sense to jump into her Lucani Lovers series, so here I am. Kiss of Moonlight
takes place several years prior to the Forgotten Goddesses series so jumping into the lucani world with this book was a great place to start.
Kyle is a single dad who enjoys every second of the time he gets to spend with his very witty, intelligent beyond her years, daughter Catene. He has a good relationship with the mother of his child and is best friends with her mate. As a loner Kyle has chosen to live separate from the rest of his lucani brethren. He is also caring enough not to bring anyone too far into his very dangerous life. He would never want a loved one to be put in harms way because of him
Tamra is running from the nightmare that has consumed her life. She is not comfortable anywhere. She doesn’t have any family to turn to. Once the stress finally got to be too much for her she decided to open up to the stray puppy that hangs out on her porch. She just never expected for the puppy to go home, shift to a clever teen, and then proceed to play match maker. I now know why my friend Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance raved about Cat. This kid rocks! I can’t wait to read more of her.
I loved Kyle! He radiates dangerous bad ass. He’s enormous, tattooed, an assassin, and deep down a huge teddy bear when it comes to Cat and Tam. He was so gentle and so kind to Tam. He thought he would scare her at every turn. Tam, even though she has been through so much horror she handles all of the crazy thrown at her pretty well.
As with all of Stephanie’s books there are some extraordinary hot sex scenes. This lady writes incredibly hot smut! The romance doesn’t feel rushed or pushed. There is a great mix of action, romance, and erotica.
I also have to point out that Kyle drives a Jeep. I do love my book hero’s in a Jeep!
