Romance Book Review: Shara Lanel's Blame it on the Moon
Author: Shara Lanel
Genre: Paranormal, Shifter, Werewolf, Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense
Haden has come back to America to try to clear his name. Years back he woke up to find his girlfriend murdered in his bed. He knows he didn't kill her, but he ran before the police could bring him to court because he knew he couldn't keep his secret if he stayed in jail during the full moon.
Kitty owns a video shop in a strip mall, where Haden comes to build his new club. Kitty has a secret of her own, so she understands what it means to not want people to find out when you are different. When the two meet they are instantly attracted to each other. They both know a relationship will never work, but they can't keep their hands off each other.
Good concept and mystery story in the background.
Kitty Lazarus can’t help reading the new pub owner’s mind—that’s her gift—but his thoughts are very different from anyone else’s, very 3-D, and they always involve stripping her naked and doing…other things. But who is this blonde lady he keeps thinking about, and why does he sometimes picture himself in front of a mirror sprouting fur and fangs?
Haden Blackwood doesn’t need the complication of lusting after the rental storeowner, especially when she leases the space he plans to expand his pub into. Worse, she has the uncanny ability to guess his thoughts. He’s got too many secrets to keep, like a tendency to howl at the moon when it’s full and a warrant for his arrest. But he can’t fight his sexual attraction to Kitty—she smells so good!—and pretty soon he’s going to have to act on it.
But his secrets may be revealed as someone from his past tries to frame him…again…for a murder he didn’t commit. If he doesn’t trust Kitty with his true nature, he may find himself locked in jail during the full moon—not the kind of publicity his pub needs. But if he does involve her in his complicated life, she may find herself the target of a madman.
