The Mac Tíre forbade all moon shifters from changing a human in order to save them from death. Grayson Quinn, the alpha of the pack ignores that ancient rule when Sydney Carlisle, his fiancée, is ravaged by one of his own kind.
Sydney may have survived the attack due to Grayson's interference, but because he left her before she went through her physical transformation, she awakened after the change believing herself a monster marked for extermination. Afraid for her life, she flees before Grayson can return to kill her.
In Moon Shifter, Karen Michelle Nutt has created a story that keeps the reader wondering throughout how these two characters are ever going to reconcile their differences. Sydney Carlisle has managed to not only hide from Grayson for almost a year, but she's made it on her own without assistance from any of the weres during that time. A part of her still loves and lusts after Grayson, but he has betrayed her and she no longer trusts him. Grayson admires Sydney for her perseverance, but she is now in great danger. As a lone female were, Sydney is ripe for any brute to claim her with or without her consent. And once weres mate, they are mated for life.
I thoroughly enjoyed Moon Shifter and felt that Ms. Nutt did an excellent job of creating the conflict between her hero and heroine. Her tale is ripe with sexual tension as these two alpha werewolves continually go after the emotional vulnerabilities of the other. One feels unloved and betrayed, and the other feels responsible and unworthy. I recommend this book to all lovers of sexy were stories.
