Review: Beneath a Rising Moon (Ripple Creek Werewolf #1) by Keri Arthur

Keri Arthur, the New York Times bestselling author of the Riley Jenson Guardian series, takes readers to the werewolf reservation of Ripple Creek-where moon fever runs high and a savage murderer runs rampant.

There's no turning back for Neva Grant. To find a killer, she must seduce the boldest male in the Sinclair pack. Her twin sister lies in a hospital bed, fighting for her life, the fourth and only surviving victim of a vicious attacker. The werewolf rangers suspect the Sinclair pack, and the only way Neva can infiltrate their close-knit ranks is to unleash the wildness within and offer herself to Duncan Sinclair.

Duncan's appetite for women is legendary on the reservation. But when this new woman stirs his hunger, he finds his desire for her goes deeper than anything he's ever felt before. When he realizes that she's playing a game and he's taken the bait, he is determined to push her to the breaking point. As Duncan and Neva engage in a dangerous dance, they must somehow find a way to join forces-before a cornered killer bites back.

Keri Arthur, author of the New York Times bestselling Riley Jenson Guardian series, has now written more than twenty-five books. She's received several nominations in the Best Contemporary Paranormal category of the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Awards and recently won RT's Career Achievement Award for urban fantasy. She lives with her daughter in Melbourne, Australia.

Netgalley Review
If you love werewolves, like action and steaming hot sex scenes, this is definitely a book you don’t want to pass up. I couldn’t put this book down. There was nonstop action and hot as hell sex. There were times when I wanted to smack Duncan upside his head. I understood why he was doing what he was doing, but of course I knew the other side as well. I also wanted to hit Neva as well. I am just glad she realized what was more important. I am also glad her twin, Savannah stood by her side when she confronted her parents.

Her mother pissed me off to no end. Talk about double standards! She deserved to get her ass whooped just as her father did. I would never make my child choose between the love of her life and the love of her family. They should be banned from the pack not her. Uhhhh!

I can’t wait to read Savannah’s story next (Beneath a Darkening Moon). It sounds like she’s already found her true mate and he used her and abandoned her as well. I want to see what he has to say to redeem himself and hear the whole story.
