Arthur never fails to deliver, keeping the fires stoked, the cliffs high, and the emotions dancing on a razor?s edge in this edgy, hormone-filled mystery."
"…rare and unique dhampire heritage ? half vampire and half werewolf…"
During the full moon, criminal acts increase, hospital emergency rooms overflow, and werewolves prowl, howling of their conquests into the long night.
Kicked out by their pack when they reached maturity, Riley Jenson and her twin brother Rhoan hide their relationship and go to work for the Directorate of Other Races in Melbourne, Australia. They use their rare and unique dhampire heritage – half vampire and half werewolf – to protect humans from the far more dangerous members of their supernatural race.
Seven days before the full moon, as “moon hunger” sends Riley’s sexual werewolf nature into high gear, Rhoan goes missing while on a mission for the Directorate. Riley partners with a naked vampire she discovers on her doorstep in order to find her twin brother. Having failed her test to become a Protector, Riley is thrust into the very position she despises. She battles her overwhelming need to mate–as well as her growing attraction to a very sexy vampire—in order to find and end an illegal cloning operation that has targeted her for harvest.
Full Moon Rising is unabashedly and joyfully sexual in its portrayal of werewolves in heat. Throughout author Keri Arthur spares no details, portraying werewolves, vampires, and supernatural beings with a sexuality and power that goes beyond the call of the full moon. Arthur never fails to deliver, keeping the fires stoked, the cliffs high, and the emotions dancing on a razor’s edge in this edgy, hormone-filled mystery.
Arthur sets the bar very high in her first novel in this new series, but there is no doubt she will deliver. Full Moon Rising is a shocking and sensual read, so keep the ice handy.
