Moon Child's Wish by C.A. Nicks
Moon Child Series Book 1
Carine is a Moon-Child who was living her serene life in the temple. When she is taken by slave traders her whole existence changes. Especially when her Wish-In-Hand chooses the enemy Eagle Warrior to gift life to. In fear of him killing her she also bonds with him.

So I guess I am on a sci-fi kick and this book did not disappoint. There were a lot of hearth wrenching moments and at times I really wondered how Nicks was going to pull off a believable happy ending and I am glad to say that I was totally satisfied especially because all was not well at the end.

I really liked this book. Ms. Nicks did an excellent job of making me believe in the relationship between Ancel and Carine. It does not force the happily ever after with a few simple sentences, but leaves you wanting to find out how it all turns out. This book ends on a HFN (Happily For Now) and makes you want to get the next book to see how it all works out.

Great book by Candy Nicks. I really enjoyed reading this. The author has a well written book will fully developed characters. I am not a writer so if I write any other type of review I will make the book sound like it is not worth reading. Great book Candy. I really enjoyed it. I will be purchasing the additional books from this author in the future.

This is erotica and fantasy merged and I liked it. I think I liked it more for the simple fact that most of the idea's presented were pretty unique.

It had style and flare...wasn't a terribly long book, and I enjoyed it...can't ask for more.

I did not care for this one very much. I couldn't get into the storyline. Free on kindle right now, if you want to give it a try.
