When the Hoax Busters is canceled, its star and creator Kristin Daniels is determined to turn things around and figures debunking the biggest most famous of hoaxes in the world is just the thing to get her TV show back on the air. So Kristin sets off to Scotland to take on Nessie. In the small town on the famous Loch, she meets a gorgeous mysterious stranger Liam, and stumbles onto evidence of a serial killer - or maybe Nessie's taken a turn to the dark side . Either way, it's not long before ou ...more
I really thought I was walking along the streets of Scotland. LH described the bright greens of the grass, the sand colored Loch, and quaint buildings so well I could see them in my head.
Kris goes to Scotland to reveal that "Nessie" is just a hoax, but when she arrives she starts to realize that there is something in Loch Ness. On her first day she runs into Liam, who promptly kisses her like she has never been kissed before. When she goes into town the next day she finds that no one knows who t
Kris Daniels has been lied to so often that she made a career out of busting myths in her Hoax Hunters reality show. But the station isn’t picking the series up for another season, just as Kris decides to tackle the Loch Ness Monster. She decides to go anyway but lets the locals believe she’s writing a children’s book since they’re not likely to want to help someone who if successful, would destroy their tourism business.

She soon comes to learn that there is a conspiracy among many of the townsp
I adore the Nightcreature’s series, the newest addition is great. Although Ms. Handeland has strayed away from her first person POV writing in this series, she still writes mostly from the heroine’s POV which keeps the hero as a mystery.

I don’t normally quote sayings from books, but there is one scene where the heroine is describing another character and says “his hair - the unfortunate color of Orangutan” had me LOL
This book was wonderful!! Engaging characters and intriguing story line. I love the original, new (to me, at any rate) take on the Loch Ness Monster. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
Disclaimer: despite the negative comments below, I did enjoy the story by itself.

In this book the series travels with Kristin Daniels all the way to Lock Ness, Scotland. She’s the host of a TV show, Hoax Hunters and in order to revive her ratings has decided to take on debunking Nessie. While I love the Scottish atmosphere and the mystery Kristen discovers behind the legend. But some of the story is a little bland. This basically a serial killer mystery. Who’s killing the missing girls? And it
Its been a while since I fell in love with Lori Handeland and her Nightcreature novels but the quality of this series has not declined one bit over the years. Lorti keeps finding new/more legends to explore in her books, and putting her own unique twist on them. She also creates the most delectible men .

In Moon Cursed, Lori focuses on the elusive Loch Ness monster, a legend that's never been proven - or debunked. Kristin Daniels, a soon-to-be-unemployed myth-buster for a PBS cable show, wants to
Moon Cursed by Lori Handeland

Lori Handeland had me at the beginning with the words: "The first recorded sighting of the Loch Ness Monster was by Saint Columba in AD 565. The most recent occurred just last year."

Kristin Daniels was the host of a television program called Hoax Hunters, which has just been canceled.

She thought if she debunked the mystery for the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, that would prove the world would want the film.

Kris has been alone since her mother died and her brother an
You know there just aren't enough books that deal with the Loch Ness Monster. For some reason this mythical creature is interesting to me. So when I this character heads to Scotland to debunk this mystery I was happy.

The town where most of the action lives was charming and filled with eccentric characters. As the story goes on you realize just why these people are so eccentric, but it just makes you love them more.

Kris was a fun person, her past makes it really hard for her to trust people. So i

This book didn't have as much fanfare as Handeland's other Nightcreature books. Not that it's a specifically a bad thing or says anything bad about the book in general, it just is.

This is the tenth installment in the Nightcreature's series, and as the 9th book for told, Handeland is definitely branching out from the normal perimeters of her series. You could kind of see it in her last novel, t
Handeland never fails to find new and interesting ways to keep her series fresh. In this installment of her Night Creatures series, she takes a look at the Loch Ness Monster. Yes, it's a bit of a jump from the werewolves or some form of wolf monster she usually depicts, but this doesn't come as a surprise since Edward and his hunters have been implying that there are more than just one kind of monster out there.

I like the lead lady, Kristen quite a bit in this book. She was adventurous, plucky a

This latest book in the NightCreature novels by Lori Handeland has American Kristin Daniels traveling to Scotland on her own money to prove that the Loch Ness Monster known as Nessie is a hoax for her PBS show Hoax Hunters.

After being set up in a cottage by the Loch, Kristin finds herself captivated by the sexy and mysterious Liam Grant, who can disappear into the shadows. Stumbling one night across the dead body of a female tourist, Kate finds another mystery, and she's approached by the leade

Okay, I finished the book, and I have to say that I was underwhelmed. It did hook me at first because of the mystery involved. But the answer to the mystery became pretty clear way before the end of the book. And, to me, the answer wasn't all that compelling. In fact, I didn't like the "legend" at the heart of the mystery, and I was disappointed when I realized that was the direction the story was going. In the end, it just seemed silly to me - and not in a good way. Plus, the final future of th
Enjoyable, paranormal romance set in Scotland involving the Loch Ness monster. It might sound cheesy, and it probably is, but I had fun reading it, and I loved the main characters.
Well written paranormal with a likable heroine and a tortured hero. Interesting secondary characteRd as well.
I probably liked this book the least out of the entire nightcreatures series (despite the guy on the cover definitely being the best looking!). I liked that Handeland branched out a bit by including other night creatures other than werewolves, and the story DID keep me fairly captivated, but I did end up guessing who was who about half way through. As a whole I did enjoy the book, and it definitely had its creepy factor but there was just something about the story, maybe too many holes, or maybe ...more

Kris Daniels is determined to find the truth. As the host of the TV show Hoax Hunters, she's traveled the world to explore and expose life's most beloved myths. Her last pursuit takes her to Scotland, where she intends to get to the bottom of the Loch Ness Monster legend once and for all. Instead, Kris encounters something far more mysterious--a heavenly creature named Liam Grant. One look into his eyes and Kris is already in danger of falling in too deep. Is he real? Or has the spell of the moo ...more
Well this one set a new level of odd. The series is a tad formulaic concerning the main characters pre book, but I admit that I am increasingly curious about what is going on with Edward and the J-S in the background of each book. There have been hints that something is up for a while now and I would like to know if that's leading somewhere significant for the series as a whole.

This book does start slow but a few chapters in things get real spicy and interesting. I had already am up my mind on who was who and what was what and in doing so I was surprised by the blatant obvious. The end felt a little rush but that last line made me smile, one of the best ways I think that thus author could end the book on.
Over all enjoyable story and concept.

I am so glad MS. Handeland is writing these books again. I love them. I've been addicted to this series since the first one. I loved Liam--he was so sweet and haunted. Kris was a strong, tough lady who pushed on even after impossible odds. I have to say I am jumping in my seat over this one.

This was a good book, but so different from the others. I really liked it but took off a star because the end was only 2/3 resolved?

The unresolved parts bothered me.

This could have been a complete stand alone book.

The mystery of Liam kept me reading until the wee hours of the morning. Lori can really keep us guessing about her heroes! Any book that does that to me deserves more than 4 stars--wish I could give it 4 1/2.
This one was very different from the rest of the series but I did like it.

I'm a little wary of books set in Scotland but I was intrigued by the Nessie plot. A little predictable at times but overall a good story.
Michelle the Romance Witch
OMG would have thought the myths could get any weirder if you are looking for a shocking twist to a typical werewolf series definitely check this one you will wet your pants laughing and crying in the end.
Lisa Berk
As with all of Lori Handelands books I loved this one. I love the characters and it seems Edward is softening in his old age. I look forward to the next one!
Sara Humphreys
This book was great! I really enjoyed the twist in the Nessie legend. Sexy Sultry. Scotland. Yummy. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
Not my favorite but still a great read by the author, just not really a fan of "Nessie" myth no matter how interesting the mystery gets.
Tiffany Vanwinkle
The book was good and kept you wondering to the almost end. It was good i wish the end would be a little different though
Cheryl Karkoff
Different kind of book. A woman trying to prove the LockNess Monster is a hoax gets more than she bargained for.
