Review: Caressed by a Crimson Moon by Amanda J. Greene

Title: Caressed by a Crimson Moon
Author: Amanda J. Greene
Source: Author Request
Genre: Vampire Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date: January 27, 2013

Consumed by madness and tormented by dark memories of blood and death, Hadrian Lucretius, King of the Validus Clan, has returned after living in self-imposed exile for nearly three hundred and fifty years.

To maintain peace with the vampires, Eva Maldonado is offered as a sacrifice to the crazed vampire king by her father, the alpha of the Silveria Shifter Pack.  Hadrian's reputation is both legendary and lethal; he is ruthless, bloodthirsty, lusty, and soulless.  When Eva arrives at the ancient fortress high in the Carpathian Mountains, she is shocked to find a ravaged man with dark burning eyes filled with loneliness and dangerous desire.

Would she be his lover...or his prey?  His savior...or his victim?  Would Hadrian lure her into madness or would their perilous passion be their redemption?






I need to start off by saying one thing:  Hadrian has to be one of the hottest leading men I've read in awhile.  And Eva is his perfect match - at least she thinks so.  Hadrian is just too worried about how insane he is to let himself succumb that he has feelings for her.  Eva is having none of it, and is dead set on putting Hadrian's tortured soul at peace - even if it keels her.  But when both parties are actually much more than either of them even realize - they may just have to own up to the fact that they are super hot together.  Will the half-crazy vampire and the werewolf half-breed be able to find a way to make things work?

With both characters harboring secrets - some are even secrets from themselves - that need to be discovered and revealed to the world, the book was very difficult to put down.  Even though it is the third in a series, and it was the first one I read - it could easily be read as a stand alone.  

PS - I loved loved loved Hadrian's fortress!!!

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
