A hot and steamy read that left me sighing. This is the third in Mayburn's new Prides of the Moon series which is part of Decadent Publishing's 1 Night Stand series.

Madame Eve of the 1 Night Stand dating service is batting 1000 with another perfect match in this thirty-nine page short. I wonder if Madame Eve can set me up for a one night stand that turns into forever like this one?

Ben & Jude, bisexual werepumas from the second story in this series, get back together with Madame Eve to

Turquoise Moon

Jude Carlson & Nick Harkil were together again and their love for each other was unyielding now they were soul mate bonded. The only thing they truly desired now was their Alpha female

I'm glad that Ben and Jude got their female they were after. (Read book 2 Emerald Moon for Ben and Jude's story. BTW, M/M book.) I liked Kara, but the kick-ass part of her baffled me a little because I didn't actually notice her doing anything spectacular, so that comment was a little strange.


Thank you to the author for this book.

Madame Eve works her magic again and pairs the desperate Kara with the delectable duo of Ben and Jude for a 1 Night Stand. Naturally, things work out for the best and there's some hot lovin' in the wilderness as Kara confesses that she's not the woman she pretended to be and that a crazy-ass shifter is determined to take her for his own.

I seriously love these little arcs that not only bring together one set of destined mates but throw in a third to keep them balanced. The sex is steamy, the bad

Short story in a series of loosely linked stories of werepumas/werecats and setting up of the moon prides.
This one has Ben, beta, loyal to his Alpha Jude who are looking for an Alpha female. Kara has become the victim of a psychopathic manipulator, cruel and determined. Here she uses magical resources to free herself from him and soul bond with Jude and Ben and hence the Turquoise Moon pride begins. Some erotic scenes and a good over evil story.

Wow!! I was hoping this would be Jude and Ben finding their third!!! What a great story. Theses books may be compact but the world and storytelling are tight!!! I was hooked from the start when we were getting Kara's POV.

Love the mixed narrative giving us a bit of all three. It makes for a more engaging story.

Of course there is all sorts of yummy smexy scenes. YA just can't get enough of that!

I would love to see this book and the last one expanded. The story is just so compelling you want to s

Ben and Jace get the chance for a pride of their own.
Still a short story, but well written.
