Cover Reveal: In the Light of the Moon by A.L. Kessler

Title: In the Light of the Moon
Author: A.L. Kessler
Publisher: Indie
Release Date: June 11, 2013

Stripped of all control, shifter Kassity has no choice but to be a killer for Lucius.  Obeying the vampire from the shadows was simply her way of life, until Jax comes to town and brings trouble with him.  When her panther half recognizes Jax as her fated mate, Kassity must deal with betrayal, secrets and Lucius in order to be with him.

With a war going on between all supernatural creatures Jaxon must figure out whose side he is on.  What started as a simple job turned into a complicated game of hearts when he meets Kassity, the woman he thought he was rescuing, but not everything is as it seems in Lucius' territory.

A.L. Kessler is one of the attending authors at this year's Indie Romance Convention.

Excerpt from In the Light of the Moon:

"Kassity, look -"

She didn't know what came over her, but she spun, grabbed a handful of his shirt, shoved him against the car and kissed him.  Probing with her tongue she coaxed him to part his lips.  When he did their tongues danced together and he tangled his hands in her hair, holding her head to his.  A moan escaped her mouth as she pressed her body up against him.  Feeling him grow hard between them made her panther start craving him.  "Thank you."

Jax blinked at her when she pulled back.  "Um, of course, anytime?"  He gave a soft laugh and brushed a hand down her cheek.  "I'm sorry that your panther reacted that way, but I'm glad I was there to stop it."

"What were you doing there after closing?"  She nuzzled his head, and then pulled back when she realized what she was doing.

He gave her a chaste kiss and she pushed to make it more.  Leaning into him she ran her tongue over his bottom lip; he pulled back to speak.  "I needed to talk to Derrik."  When he captured her lips he tugged on the bottom one and groaned into her mouth as her hands snaked around his waist.  "Kass, not here."

"Only place Lucius doesn't watch."  She whispered against his neck and then nipped at his ear.  Feeling the shiver slither down his body, she did it again.

His hands skimmed the curves of her, settling on her hips.  "Damn that stupid little blood sucker."  He whispered as he kissed down her neck.  Nuzzling the crook of her neck, he wiggled his hands under her shirt.

She gasped at the bare skin contact.  "Even my panther likes you."

"Cause mine can calm yours, we talked about this."  He flipped so he pressed her up against the car.  "I love feeling you against me."  He whispered in her ear, tugging her hair just a little.

She gave another small gasp and leaned in to kiss him, but he avoided her peck.  He kissed behind her ear, sending shivers up her spine.  Pulling her well-loved black shirt over her head in a quick motion, he continued his assault of warm kisses down to the swell of her breasts.  Kass leaned her head back and moaned.  Heat followed his lips with every soft touch he gave her.  His hands smoothed over her waist, to her ribs until he cupped her breasts.  His thumbs brushed against her nipples through the thin purple lace of her bra.  Her breath caught as a heat rose in her, a different heat than her beast caused.  Her eyes met his, but a figure moved behind him, coming out of the door of the club.

"C'mon you two, not in my parking lot!"  Derrik waved a hand at them.

Kass flushed as she pushed Jax away and bent down to swoop up her shirt.  "So not cool."

"You enjoyed it and you know it."  Jax kissed her cheek and moved to his own car.  "I'll see you laer."

Kass closed her eyes and leaned her forehead against the freezing car.  The cold helped clear her mind, but fire ran through her again when she thought about what just happened.
