The Moon series by Rebecca York is a fantastic shape-shifting paranormal romance series.

Killing Moon is the first book in this series and is different from other shape-shifters I have read.

Ross Marshall, Private Investigator and werewolf, assists the police force in locating missing persons and more importantly ... serial killers involved in those cases.

Doctor Megan Sheridan is a research doctor working for Bio Gen Labs doing mostly genetic testing for clients. Losing the coin toss, she makes a...more
I really enjoyed this book - well written, good character development. I liked the whole werewolf myth in the story. Good one - I'll definitely read more from the series :)
Well written, great characters with a good deal of depth, and excellent pacing. And come on, a werewolf and a serial killer make an excellent book that straddles the urban fantasy and paranormal romance genres, which I absolutely love. Must find the next book in the series. Thanks for the rec Shanon. :)
1st in the series, is about Megan, a research dr. that is asked to take a sample of a new client, Ross, who is a werewolf and wants to figure out how to prevent children from dying in his family. But when the case he is working on catches up to he and Megan, he would do anything to protect his mate.

i loved it it's steamy and erotic
I love used book stores. Not only can I find books that are on my 'need to get' list but by browsing the shelves I find unexpected treasures. When searching the paranormal section several months ago, I came across Killing Moon, the first in a series by Rebecca York. The synopsis on the back was intriguing - private investigator who is a wolf, genetic researcher female lead, serial killer, secrets, forces beyond their control. It all sounded like it was made for me. Unfortunately, it wasn't.

PI Ross Marshall has a talent for tracking. Local police detective Jack Thornton has found Ross unusually helpful at solving homicide cases gone cold. Thornton can't figure out how Ross gets his info, but he's happy to have his help. Ross knows that his talent is genetic hires BioGen labs to run some tests. Genetiic researcher Megan Sheridan finds him unconscious when she drives to his home to get the blood sample for testing. As she nurses him she finds herself strangely attracted to him. Ross...more
This is about a werewolf named Ross and Megan who works for Bio Gen a research facility for DNA type testing. The premise of the story was good, Megan goes to Ross' house to do a blood test and get his genetic line. She finds him naked on the floor bleeding and out of his mind. She being a former physician decides to stay and help him. He has been shot. She nurses him for days and he comes around. The story really takes off from there with a serial murderer Ross is trying to catch and Megan gett...more
“Killing Moon” is a fresh take to the paranormal world. I’ve been reading a lot of fantasy lately and is always nice to read something a little different than the usual.

In the werewolf world the authors tend to write about insta- uncontrollable-love. The men are possessive and have little respect for the women wishes. Fortunately, Ross is the opposite. He has a dark background, full of sadness and family drama. He tends to keep to himself and avoid women. Mostly because he doesn’t want to put th...more

Recommends it for: people who enjoy werewolf and romance
Shelves: werewolves
This is a great escapist read. It reminds me a lot of Meyer's Twilight. A woman attracted to a man by his supernatural powers and the man trying to resist her because he recognizes that he isn't good for a mortal woman, but trapped also.

In one sentence, this book suffers from a serious identity crisis as do its main characters. It deserves two stars only because I managed to finish it without thinking about giving up on it.
Having mustered through Killing Moon I can say that Rebecca York had a good idea. She wanted to write a different book, something that will not include your run-of-the-mill werewolf story. She wanted to tell the story about the human behind the wolf. Her intentions were good, but we all know with what the ro...more

Well what can I say about this book....I really enjoyed it!

I downloaded a file of Kindle books online and this series was included. I have had them for well over a year and have been working my way through the 2,000 books that were there. I am sorry I waited so long to read it!

The story is about a PI Ross Marshall who has a talent from tracking criminals, he is currently tracking a man who is responsible for the torture and murder of numerous women. He is so talented at tracking them down becau...more
My rating is actually 3.5 stars. I have never read Rebecca York before and so was unsure what to expect. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, though there were a few things that kept it from being a 4 star read. Megan Sheridan is a doctor at a Genetics lab and she meets up with Ross Marshall when she goes out to collect a blood sample from him in order to perform genetics testing for him. He is werewolf and a PI who is working with the police to catch a serial killer. Since I love romantic suspense I...more

I've been reading a lot of fantasy lately, paranormal, witches, werewolves, vampires. This was definitely one of the better books in that genre. Ross is a werewolf. Megan is a human. It is pretty well telegraphed from the beginning that the two are going to fall in love, but the rest of the book is getting them there without much emphasis on the actual falling in love part. I mean that this isn't a romance book. There is a little romance, a little sex, but it's very understated. There are only t...more

~ SPOILERS - until I can learn how to hide them ~

I've been reading and enjoying Rebecca York for the best part of a decade now, although I'm most familiar with her 43 Light Street series for Silhouette Intrigue. In this series (Moon books), we're introduced to three brothers - and a couple of friends and cousins, in related books - who happen to be werewolves. Ms York brings an interesting new take on the traditional werewolf novel: these are not supernatural creatures who change into half-man-h...more

I freely admit that I like werewolf books. They have always been my "monster" of choice. Oh, vampires will do in a pinch, but werewolves hold more appeal to me.

And I've met Rebecca York and found her to be a very friendly, very kind woman, so the combination of her writing and my favorite supernatural creatures was set up to be a good one.

Ross Marshall is a private detective. He investigates crimes in ways that "normal" PIs can't, given his ability to shapeshift and take better advantage of his...more
Megan was only doing her job when her boss asked her to take her lab supplies and go out to a client's house to take some blood. She just thought she'd be there for a few minutes to collect his blood and then head back to the lab so she might do some research on the genotypes in his sample.

Was she ever wrong.

PI Ross Marshall is a werewolf. And he's really good at his job. He has single handedly taken down one serial killer/rapist and is working on the second. Only problem? When the police didn'...more
I wasn't sure I was going like this romantic suspense / paranormal romance, especially with all the heavy petting (the main character is a werewolf--get it??). But it wasn't bad. I liked the thriller aspect of the story, hunting down a serial killer, and the characters weren't cardboard either. Of course, the book had more than one climax (har har). I'll probably read the next in the series--largely because I have books 3 & 4 sitting at home, but I'll need to read book 2 first.

I found the whole to be highly contrived. The plot seemed overly convenient and extremely predictable. The "magic" of their attraction even managed to drain a lot of the magic out of their attraction. Unfortunately, the characters were so typical as to be pretty much simply stereo-typical and had about as much development as a 16-yr olds first D&D character. Not saying I could de better, and I did read it cover-to-cover, but...
The premise of the novel is that Dr. Megan Sheridan, a genetic researcher, visits Ross Marshall, a PI, to take a blood sample so that the lab she works at can begin genetic testing. Prior to her visit, Ross was tracking a potential suspect in a series of murders and is himself injured. Megan shows up at his doorstep, finds Ross injured and nurses him back to health, in the process finds him undeniably attractive. Thrown in a complication of the said murder suspect, a suspicious police detective,...more
This book was more like 2.5 stars. It was OK, I liked the characters, I liked the plot, but I wouldn't recommend it to someone who asked just because I think there are much better books in this genre. While I like relationship building, the first third dragged a little while the two main characters hemmed and hawed over the same issues/concerns. While I like a happy ending, the resolution was almost a little to perfect even for me. The second book is a spin-off from the cop character Jack Thorto...more

Shelves: mystery, romance
A romantic suspense trying to pass as a PNR (and utterly failing), this novel left me cold and bored. There's no world-building, with the exception of a few lines, but then there's no need to as the paranormal aspect was a trick to keep the hero and heroine a part until 3/4 of the story. It might have been hot, it was flat. I forced myself to keep reading, but it was a struggle all the way. I skipped most of the pages before the end.

It might’ve worked better as a straightforward thriller. But ho...more

While I enjoyed the overall story, it felt slow moving at times and I didn't feel a stronge connection to the hero/heroine. I will probably read the next book in the series, just to see what happens, but it isn't a priority.

I hadn't read a werewolf paranomral in a while, so this was enjoyable. I met with this author at Romantic Times last year and she was very nice. I was impressed with her romantic suspense writing the most, so if you like Cop thrillers with nasty serial killers, this book is for you. The villain was a REALLY bad gruesome killer and believable. I liked it for the dark parts, which is different from some of the reviews below. Most importanlty I liked it enough to pick up book two. If you like roman...more
Picked this at the used bookstore unaware I had read it before. So I read it again since I didn't remember how it ended.

I liked this book. It was different in that there weren't hoards of werewolves with a whole hidden society and all, just one family from an ancestor who had asked the celtic gods for a special gift. I enjoyed both the hero and heroine. Both were very well written. The reaction of the heroine to finding out the guy was a werewolf was pretty good in that she didn't just say "oh...more
