Moonlight by Rachel Hawthorne

Released: March 1, 2009
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 272
Series: Dark Guardian #1
Rating: 5 stars
Kayla is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can't understand why she's so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no
way of knowing that she's inherited a terrifying—and thrilling—gene that will change her life forever.

Lucas is dangerous, gorgeous . . . and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm's way.

As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.

This is one of those books that's perfect for a rainy day...or whenever actually. With a little bit of romance and fantasy thrown in, Moonlight was exactly my kind of book and just what the doctor called for. LOL! :)

I loved this book. An easy read with a quick-moving and interesting plot. I devoured it in a few hours because it was hart to put down. The characters were perfectly developed - not to shallow but not too overdone either. Each had a bit of mystery to them, which I loved! Makes it a little harder to figure them out and then when their story is finally revealed you like, "Wow! Wasn't expecting that!"

After finishing up this book, I ran out to the nearest bookstore the next day and bought the rest of the series. I can't wait to start reading them.
