A good man drowning in bad deeds . . .

Balancing a criminal empire and a preternatural clan war, reluctant front man Giles St. Clair doesn’t need a problem like Brigit MacCreedy . . . How much trouble can the head-strong and manipulative Shifter beauty get into in two weeks? Plenty when her schemes range from kidnapping to fleeing the retribution of her dead lover’s clan.

Witty dialogue, fast paced plot and storyline, add in the very important steam factor and vivid wonderful main and secondary characters and you have yourself another winner from this great series.

Just fabulous!

And so continues my love-hate relationship with this series! Birgit was one of the most selfish, calculating and manipulative heroines I have read about in a while. Nancy Gideon totally had her work cut out for her to endear me to her, and while we got to know why Birgit was the way she was and Birgit had changed by the end of the book, I can't say I loved her. Even at the end I thought Giles was a little too good for her.

Anyway I like how Max and Cee Cee continue to feature in this ser

This book surprised me in a couple of different ways. I’ve read this series since the beginning when the stories were just about Max and CeCe and their journey together. Since then it has branched out to all the different people who were secondary characters in the first several books and introduced a few more, while expanding on the world-building and adding new story arcs. Giles has been a character that has always been in the

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*eARC received from Edelweiss

In the 7th installment of Nancy Gideon's MOONLIGHT series, we get a peek into the history of Giles St. Clair and Brigit MacCreedy...

Giles was a human hired gun for the mob until Max took over and he started walking the line towards law and order again. Sort of. Giles is an incredibly honorable, loyal, and GOOD guy who doesn't try to pretend that he's not a little bit bad, but being one of the lone hum

This is the first book I have read by Nancy Gideon and it is the 7th in this series. I love shifter stories and enjoyed this one as well. Nancy has some rather harsh characters and super soft ones, there didn’t seem to be an in between. I love Bree and her self confidence in herself and what her worth was, she made no apologies for using her sexuality. Very refreshing! I would suggest to read the other books in the series to have a better understanding of the

I had the opportunity to read Masked by Moonlight, the first book in this series, back in 2010, and really enjoyed it. It was a series that I knew that I wanted to read more of - but of course, hundreds of other books got in the way. When I was given the opportunity to read this one for review, I jumped on it! I missed out on a lot in the five books that came in between - but this book does read well as a standalone.

I really liked Brigit - she was all tough as nails on the outside, but once yo

Nancy Gideon’s Betrayed by Shadows was a consuming read, fascinating! I’ll admit, I’m not sure why I even picked this one, because normally shape shifters are not my thing. In fact, I’m pretty sure I can safely say that I’ve never read a shape shifter book before. But I’m telling you, I’m signed up for all of Nancy Gideon’s series. Shape shifter sex aside, (and that was phenomenal, by the way), when you’re dealing with such lethal creatures, the stakes are always high, and you, as the reader, ac ...more

Since I typically start things off this way, let's just go ahead and incorporate this in reviews from now on.

Preamble - I could kick myself for now reading this series sooner. I've always had them on my ever-growing TBR list, but I just don't have the time to read like I used to. And I would occasionally look at the covers and drool. Yep, who feels like a jackass now.

Thankfully, I've read the blurbs and kept up with that was going on in the other books, so I wasn't lost coming in this late in th
Betrayed by Shadows tells the story of Giles St. Clair, Max' Second and Brigit MacCreedy, Silas' sister. Brigit comes to town seeking Silas' help only to find he's just gotten married and is heading out of town on his honeymoon. Giles agrees to look after her while he's gone. Giles is human, but he's spent a great deal of time around shifters and fits in well.

Betrayed by Shadows by Nancy Gideon

This story revolves around Giles St. Clair, a human mobster turned good, and Bridgit MacCreedy, a Shifter whose actions have brought on a lot of trouble. Running from two clans, Bridgit MacCreedy stumbles unannounced to her brother’s wedding needing protection. Silas who was about to go on a honeymoon with his pregnant wife transferred that protection to Giles, a trusted friend of Max Savoie, the Shifter head of the New Orleans clan.

I was worried at the start of this book that I wasn't going to like it as much as the rest of the series. The main character Brigit is just not the lovable type. After all it was her boyfriend who tried to kill Max. Luckily that guy was not all that smart and Max got away with just a few minor injuries. But have faith fellow readers because Nancy Gideon has outdone herself on this one. It takes an excellent writer to take a semi villain, or at least a major annoyance, and turn them into a charac ...more

BETRAYED BY SHADOWS by Nancy Gideon is an interesting paranormal romance. Book 7 in the "By Moonlight" series. It is a steamy story set in New Orleans. While this is book 7 in this series, I had no trouble keeping up with the story line, characters, or plot. A compelling,steamy story of love,romance, passion,danger,intrigue,shapeshifters, and hidden,dark secrets. This is my first by this author but it will not be my last. With a spellbinding cast,intrigue,a strong plot, sizzling passion,and supe ...more

Another winner for Nancy Gideon. The shape shifter world keeps getting more and more complicated. Not content to stay in New Orleans, Gideon takes the reader to Tahoe and Memphis (and Chicago in the previous book). Who knew shape shifters were so wide spread? With Betrayed by Shadows, the reader meets a human thug with a conscience and a bad ass shifter female. I liked Giles right from the beginning. Brigit was another story--until she lets you see beneath the surface. The characters are well dr ...more

I wasn't sure that I would enjoy this book because her attitude wasn't the best from the last book, but i really enjoyed this one. she was more vulnerable in this book. You got to see her struggles especially with the decisions she was trying to make. I haven't really been a Giles fan, because he's really didn't have a major role within any of the books. His back story to how he became a hit man for Jimmy was kind of week, but I still liked him. . I didn’t understand WHY everyone continually bla ...more

With lots of romance, intrigue, danger and gut wrenching scenes with Max, OMG MAX!!!, this book is awesome. There were scenes where I was jumping up and down with anticipation, I had tears, I laughed, I yelled, etc. I went from hating Brigit to loving her. Oh and Giles?! If you have read any book in this series, you know how lovable Giles is. The last page was the hardest, I did not want it to be over!

I liked it more interested in Max and Cee Cee. But I admire Giles's attitude he got his women. It was sad about his family life what happened after his father's death. But in the end a happy ending for most everyone. I would have killed my step father after all he did have a hand in killing Giles's father but forgiveness is a good thing.

I so did not like Bridget when she was first introduced and was skeptical about her being the love interest for Giles, whom I <3. But, this book changed my mind about things.
