Set after the Moon Trilogy, I enjoyed this more-so than those books. It was the slow burn that did it. The hero and heroine don't get together until 5 years after they first met, and the hero is the alpha of the Cat Clan -that's some self-control!

However, when Wheeler found Emma she was a mess. Damaged by the one who had turned her and forced to kill him to escape, and then with no advice or support she was doing her best to survive on her own. She didn't trust anyone, especially not some stran

Gave it a 3 because I like there to be a HEA. It is a free book. After she is kidnapped Emma's chapters are her waking in a cage, trying to escape a forced breading program and to not be hunted. Kidnappers are humans who conduct experiments, bread and sell hunting experiences. Wheeler is a lion shifter and alpha. Emma is an ocelot shifter and Wheeler's 2nd. Wheeler has known, Emma is his mate from the first time he caught her scent. That was 5 years ago. His chapters alternate with hers. Wheeler ...more

Loosely connected to the Moon Trilogy series by some of the characters introduced in Black Moon. I have to say that this was my favorite story of the group. The characters felt well-rounded, the action moved along and the glimpses of the past kept me interested. I loved Wheeler for his decision to let Emma grow into herself. I thought it was very well done and it gave him a chance to learn who she was while still making me feel like they were two characters who were destined to be together. Emma ...more

I adored the fiery little heroine in this book. She was soooo strong and her terrifying history made a true champion out of her. I would love to see this one in a series, I feel the story was a bit unfinished. One can only assume what happens with Martinez' family and his little newly, forcibly turned Were. I'd like closure. Other than that, this was a daring adventure and I am warmed by the Lion's strength of character, patience and concern.

This book is related to the Moon Trilogy. I have read a few of this writer's books and find it very interesting that he goes into just enough detail about the cat clans and such live among us humans to make it seem real and possible. I love that aspect of the stories. The characters were described in a way that made me feel like i knew what i needed to know about their personalities. I found the glimpses into the past helpful in understand everyone's current state of mind. Emma had the ability, ...more

Emma was 14 when she was kidnapped. raped and turned into a were-ocelot against her will. After her family rejects her, at 15, she runs away and survives on her own. Wheeler is a were-lion who found Emma in New Mexico and brought her back to Colorado to live with the Clan he heads. Because of her intimacy issues (understandably from being raped/held captive/rejected, he doesn't tell her that she is his life mate.

This book is not included with the Moon Trilogy but if you read them this is definitely an extra plus.

Emma was turned unwillingly when she was fourteen by a feral were ocelot. She made it on her own for six years and then one day in New Mexico Wheeler found her. He is the Alpha of the Cat Clan in Colorado. After a year she finally trusted him enough to move to the compound.

Wheeler new that Emma was his mate from the beginning. With her past though he could not force her. Now that they were final

This novella is part of the moon series, although Black Moon, Amber Moon and Silver Moon should be read in order and together, this novella could be a stand alone piece. I really enjoyed it. The author does an excellent job of world building is a small amount of writing.

Emma was turned into a "were" against her will, at a young age and violently. She was on her own for years before Wheeler found her. He knew she was his mate, but she was hurt and cautious due to the nature of her early years as

I picked this up on Amazon a few weeks ago. Harvest Moon is set in the same "world" as the moon trilogy. I'm not sure if it is because after three previous books I am already invested in this series or if it is the characters themselves but this was my favorite "moon" book so far.
Since I mentioned the characters I'd like to point out how well they were done even though this was just a novella. The Heroine is strong and determined, able to take care of herself and not wait for the cavalry to arr

I really thought this book was pretty, I would have liked it to go on more, but still very good. This is a great example and proof, you can never assume with anything.
Emma was forced into her new life at a young age, forced to kill her changer just to escape. Her family thinks she's a freak and doesn't even care when she runs away at 16.
On the run and barely making it own her own when Chris walks into her life. He knows she's his mate, and she has no idea. Knows nothing about car life, but is de

This was a wonderful short novella that introduce Emma a shifter changed against her will and her family pushed her to the side as if it was her fault she was changed. Wheeler is the leader of the Cat Clan and he scented Emma on his way to a meeting. He knew she was his mate and knew he had to tread lightly for his mate had been hurt and violently attack by one of his kind. As Emma realizes that she wants to give Wheeler her heart she is taken by a humans only interested in hunting her kind for ...more

If paranormal books are your thing, you'll probably like this little gem. It's a quick read about Emma and Wheeler. Emma is an ocelot who was forcibly changed at the age of 14 while her family was on vacation. She ended up alone and not having a clue of what she was for years before Wheeler found her. After awhile she found her place in Wheelers Clan. Emma's story is full of interesting things like fights for dominance, confusions about mating, and abductions of were's by mysterious persons.

This is a novella of approximately 33,500 words. It is paranormal romance and a companion piece to the Moon Trilogy (Black Moon, Amber Moon, and Silver Moon)

This is the book that details the story of Wheeler, the leader of the Cat Clan, and his Second, Emma.

You get more history and background on Emma than you do Wheeler but there is also a current storyline too so there is plenty of meat here for you to enjoy.

Not my kind of book. Were-beings. I love cats of all kinds. Ocelots and lions, oh my! I've written this much and still can't seem to say why this isn't my kind of book. I don't like shooting and killing for power. I don't like romance books. That was my take away feeling from this book.

What, besides cats, did I like? Those proverbs at the beginning of each chapter. Oh, and I laughed out loud at the were-dove! grrrowl-tweet!

You know, honestly, the writing wasn't bad. No huge errors. The main char

I have read the previous book but don't recall them vividly. I wonder if this book would have been better if I refreshed my memory...but while reading I didn't find myself confused. The book was building up to be interesting and was an easy read. I felt it had the makings of a great book (according to me) but something was missing. It didn't quire capture. But a decent easy read if you have nothing else to read.

Bevill, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I adore your paranormal writing style. You somehow capture adventure, romance, and suspense all in one handful. I enjoy your creatures and now want my husband to be able to shape shift into a giant protective lion! Please don't stop writing about your wonderful and captivating paranormal world.
I feel like I'm sitting at the "BOOK BAR" and you are the bartender. I'm demanding a double! **slams hand on bar**

I got this as a freebie on Smashwords and started reading it to take a break from a series I was reading. I honestly could not put the book down. I had started it at about 11:30pm and stayed up till after 3am until I finished! I really loved the story line and the characters. I would love to read more about the world and lives of the Cat Clan. I definitely reccommend this for shifter fans.

I loved this book just because you got to read wee bits of Emma and Wheeler in the Moon Trilogy. I think it is great that Emma and Wheeler got their own book. And what a book it is! It shows you how they met in Mexico all those years ago. I love reading about WereCats so this book was right up my street :) It's a must buy!

I had this book on my Kindle for ages before I finally read it the other day.

It was a free Kindle book so I wasn't really expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be really good!

We have some well rounded characters, a nice plot, no spelling mistakes.

All in all a good read! I'd like to see more from this these two characters in particular.

Lovely wee novella, read after the moon series and probably my favourite to date thanks to the slow burn and well thought out characters, despite being a novella a strong past is portrayed and I find myself loving christopher wheeler for his patience.

I read this book while recouperating from a serious illness and related surgery. I was looking for books with an element of fantasy because I wanted a temporary escape from the difficulties in my real life. This book scored on that note but none others.

I enjoyed this novella. Like the moon trilogy, it was a page turner, you just want to know what is happening enough to not put it down. Read this in a matter of hours after purchasing it. If you enjoy a bit of paranormal, this is a great, quick, read.
