Officer Jessie McQuade has seen plenty in her years on the force—but nothing as intriguing as the gorgeous, naked man she encounters while tracking a rogue wolf.
Professor Will Cadotte is a Native American activist. He's also the only man capable of distracting Jessie from her work. And for a cop, distraction—no matter how pleasurable—can be deadly. It's against Jessie's better judgment to accept Will's help in her investigation, yet she soon finds herself doing exactly that—and more.
Will's dark, penetrating eyes see into a part of Jessie's soul she never knew existed. It's exhilarating Now, as a town's deepest secrets come to light, no one is safe: not friends, lovers, or strangers.

MaryCT I recommend reading the books in order. The story does progress from book to book, and makes more sense if you start at the beginning. See 1 question about Blue Moon…. Lists with This Book.

While I was reading this book I couldn't decide if I liked it or not.
Now that I'm done reading this book, I still can't figure it out. This book is a tangled up combination of fantasy and romance. It's also a tangle of original ideas and well-aged cliches.
If you don't figure out who the real bad guy is before the heroine - you probably also get surprised by the endings of Dr. Seuss books. Incidentally, I never found the Cat in the Hat to be a subversive so much as I found him to be a huge jerk While I was reading this book I couldn't decide if I liked it or not.
Incidentally, I never found the Cat in the Hat to be a subversive so much as I found him to be a huge jerk. So somewhere between the werewolves and again, I hope you get there before the heroine or The story moves at a good pace, the basic elements are pretty interesting. Werewolves are stalking a small town, and the only one who knows is cop named Jessie McQuade who doesn't believe in them.
Also the werewolves were created by Nazis. That's right. The werewolves were created by Nazi scientists so that Hitler could have his own Nazi werewolf army. Not all of the people who made the change were appreciative. When a hunter who seems to remember that story first hand shows up to help hunt down the wolves which are supposedly carrying a dangerous new type of rabies virus , Jessie is forced to admit that something strange is going on, and the stranger is the only one she can trust.
Meanwhile, she has lots of sex with the in touch with the earth, not at all cliche, walking naked through the forest Native American professor who has information on the werewolves that makes Jessie suspicious he might have a little firsthand knowledge of his own. He's really pretty irrelevant to the story. The information he provides could have been provided several other ways and honestly? The sex was pointless.
I know this was billed as a paranormal romance, so I guess the sex was inevitable, but it really wasn't necessary or helpful to the plot. Also not really instructive to the plot were the constant references to Jessie's chest, which was apparently large and inconvenient right up until her naked new friend taught her to appreciate them.
Seriously, like, every chapter "blah blah werewolves blah blah my chest is too big blah blah". The copy I had included a preview from the next book which In the end, however, Blue Moon kept me interested and entertained, so I'll probably keep an eye out for the sequels at the library. I'd love to see Handeland attempt a fantasy book that wasn't billed first and foremost as a romance.
I enjoy well-written romance books, but in this case, the romance was the weak link and was a distraction to the readers and the characters. View 2 comments. In fact, this is the first series I read which I can qualify as adult PNR and I liked it extremely despite of unimpressive front cover.
Recently I brought the entire series and I plan to finish it as soon as I can. I've already read 4 of them but since I'm reading it, I'm starting from start. What I like? Strong kick-ass heroine not trash talk wise like in YA but actually qualified inspector Hot sexy love interest Werewolves finally a series which classifies them as villains instead of hot meat heroes Werewolves Hunters Enough said!

On one hand, it's got evil Nazi werewolves running around in the woods of Wisconsin, looking to create a super-werewolf god. On the other hand, it's not a very good book at all. The romancy parts were intrusive, like they'd be figuring things out, or in peril, and then they'd stop everything to sex each other up.
Like, they were just so HOT, not even evil Nazi werewolves can make them keep their hands off each other! Meh, I say. Mar 09, Bethany rated it really liked it. I found this book for a dollar at a used book store and decided that it looked like it was worth a try. I'm not usually into the Native American romance genre, but I do like a good paranormal romance so the werewolf angle of the Nightcreatures series had me at least mildly interested in the series.
The first one-third to one-half of the book was a little on the slow side. The narrator, Jessie McQuade is an easily relatable female police officer in a small town who has a lot of interaction with th I found this book for a dollar at a used book store and decided that it looked like it was worth a try.
