Genetic researcher Megan Sheridan didn’t expect to be taking care of a wounded man, whom she is simply trying to collect a blood sample from for testing. Megan spends two days nursing him back to health; when she questions him about how he was shot he confides that he is on the trail of a killer. Megan senses there is something else that Ross is holding back.
The Killing Moon by Rebecca York is a very intense read that pulls readers in from the very first page and doesn’t let go. From the first moment that Ross and Megan met just a simple touch pulls them into this fantastic unspeakable connection, Ross was very guarded about his secrets and sort of keeps himself at a distance from Megan. Megan is very strong and doesn’t give up on him and I truly admired her for that, the villain I felt was bold with his “going-ons” searching for victims for his special room. This is a very intense suspense that I think readers will enjoy, the follow-up Edge of the Moon is the story of detective Jack Thornton, which we get a sneak peek at, that promises to be just as intense.
