I see him and know what this turmoil inside of me means: He's the one. My forever.

Kayla is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can't understand why she's so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no way of knowing that she's inherited a terrifying—and thrilling—gene that will change her life forever.

Lucas is dangerous, gorgeous . . . and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm's way.

As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.

I loved this book! I had an idea of what I wanted or really what I was expecting before I started and it was exactly the type of book I had in mind.

I wanted a fun, easy read, with a little bit of fantasy and romance! And that’s just what Hawthorne delivered! The plot is really quick moving, and engaging. The characters are developed, but not necessarily deep. It was just a great story, I’m a sucker for romance.

I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Which is told in romance style, so each book is follows different characters, but still incorporates the characters from the previous novel as well. For example, the next novel, Full Moon, features Lindsey, which also happens to be a character in Moonlight, so you’ll already know a little bit about her before you even start reading the next book!

Overall light and fluffy, but completely satisfying!
