(I am considering this the first novel in the newly introduced Decorah Security spin-off of the Moon series ... Until I am told otherwise.)

Dark Moon is a thrilling perversion of shapeshifting fun. When Ruth told me it was "darker than the others" I was unsure what she meant. Now I know.

Dark Moon is a spin-off from the usual Moon series. Dark Moon introduces Cole, one of the Marshall cousins and an employee of Decorah Security.

In Dark Moon, Decorah Security provides assistance a rescue mission fo

Started out with a decent premise and plotting, then fell apart about a third in. Everything on the boat was confusing and jumbled, the action scenes as well as the interactions between Emma and Cole. It was hard for me to believe they are suddenly "in love" after sleeping together once (while pretending to be other people). Not enough background provided to justify that leap. Appreciated the twist of the spy already on board, but it wasn't enough to save this one. ...more

Deals with S&M

A dark erotic suspense story. I have enjoyed all of this series that I have read but this triggered me too much and I was not able to complete it. I do plan to continue the series however.
Cole Marshall and Emma Richards, both employees of Decorah Security are going undercover on a cruise ship designed for those with the money to back their 'unique' sexual tastes. their mission is to free a young kidnap victim from the perversions of the guests onboard.

One problem, Cole has a secret that he isn't willing to share with Emma, to whom he is becoming attracted, he's a werewolf. He may need to use his abilities to save Karen, as well as many other unwilling 'cast members' on this unsa

The story itself was just mediocre as was the writing. It's not anything like her previous books which were really good. This self-published book really needed an editor and/or a proofreader as sentences were repeated one after the other, words were missing and the main characters name changed 3/4 of the way through the book for an entire page then reverted back to the correct name. This was very distracting. A very disappointing start to this new series and it didn't add anything to the Dark se ...more

Little too heavy with the sex, but I like Ms. York because her books are easy to read. The story flows well and while you can predict some of what will happen, sometimes there are surprises. Please be aware there are graphic scenes, but otherwise, enjoy the story telling. You can always breeze past the sex.

Wonderful exciting story!

Strong, sexy, captivating characters in this story of danger and intrigue. Hot sex and romance between two agents who cant resist each other while attempting to rescue a young kidnapped woman.

Paranormal romance

This is one security firm I'd never hire. I spent more time laughing than I should have. They're horrible at their jobs. Mostly because they kept getting distracted by having sex. I like sex in books but I like a plot that makes sense with it.

Paranormal. A few twists and turns keep it moving. Big reveal at the end was kind of a let down as it seemed to be out of left field.

Cole Et Emma are a team for this assignment at Decorah Security.
Great story will they be able to save Karen ? Will Emma accept Cole secret? Read the book to find out.

What is up with these books I'v been reading! The last few books I have read all center around some kind of sex group or sex & death hand in hand... I didn't even plan it that way!! Geez!!

I am laughing, because I forgot to review this book & It took like half a day to read it. I read the 4th book in this series & this series is pretty good. I guess my mood wasn't! Sorry!

I found DARK MOON to be an enjoyable quick read. It's a great book for take out on the back porch with a mug of iced tea. I would almost call this book relaxing.

When I think about romantic suspense what comes to mind is darkness and tension. The same applies when I think of werewolves. Just that edge just isn't there. I think that the cruise ship and its owner were creepy in a wacky, over the top sort of way that kept me from taking the rest of the book seriously.

There are some sex scenes in t

I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed the Marshall clan of werewolves. Ms. York returns to them with this very sexy entry. Cousin Cole Marshall works for Decorah Security in this spin-off e-book series. Partnered with Emma Richards, Cole has his work cut out for him. He's reached the age when werewolves start seeking a mate and Emma has the word stamped on her forehead--or might as well, as far as Cole is concerned. Thrown into a case involving kidnapping and sex slavery, they go undercover as lovers ...more

This is the first book that I have read by Rebecca York. Though this particular book is part of a series, you can read it as a stand alone, as I have. Having not read any others in the series, I cannot tell if a werewolf theme is common to all of them or just this particular one, their were no hints in this story. Basically, our two hero's work for a top security company, they know each other, but not particularly well. Due an incident, they are forced to work very closely together and their fee ...more

She is on a converted luxury liner owned by a rival of her fathers in the middle of the ocean (a new take on a captive audience).
Like the Love Boat but ramped up to dizzying heights.

Both Emma and Cole work for a security company called Decorah. And both are topnotch operatives chosen for the most dangerous jobs. This time they face unprecedented risks. A young girl is kidnapped because of her fathers' earlier dealings with a madman. No matter whether the five million dollar ransom is paid or not, the penalty will be death unless the two investigators can disguise themselves, take on new identities and infiltrate a shipboard party where there are no limits to the perversion ...more

I really enjoyed Dark Moon by Rebecca York. It begins with a New York socialite gets kidnapped. The ransome is $5,000,000. Her father turns to Frank Delcora. Frank inturns to his 2 best agents, Cole and Emma asking them to infiltrate the kidnappers. Karen Hopewell is being held on a cruise ship owned by her fathers rival, DelConte. This ship is where the very wealthy indulge in their sexual fantasies. Cole and Emma were ont a 'couple' when this mission started, but this mission is anything but o ...more

Dark moon is the first book in the Decorah security series.

Emma and Cole are sent to the Windward to find a missing girl. They were hired to figure out what happened to Karen, the daughter to a wealthy man who has made some enemies.

The windward is a cruise ship that fulfills your every sexual fantasy. Emma and Cole fight their growing attraction while trying to locate Karen who is being held captive to be turned into a sex slave. Lots of action and mystery. Definite must read if you like parano

I didn’t really enjoy that book. I thought the plot was confused and the characters were acting weird. Since there were errors in the story (for example, Cole is sometimes called “Morgan” instead of “Marshall”), it felt more like a first draft than a published book.

I’m still grateful for the free read. I’ll check out Rebecca York’s other series. Maybe I’ll find something that will suit me better than Dark Moon.
Hold up. Put on the breaks. I got to 19% of the book and stopped reading. The idea of a cruise ship with rich men carrying out their sexual fantasies is too much. I cannot give the book "one" star. In real life, many women and "children" are TRAFFICKED VICTIMS serving mens fantasies and with no hope of rescue. Readers, the world in this book is very real for very many.

Can't quite put my finger on why I didn't click with this book. It was well written, fast paced, hot enough to be eyebrow raising on occasion and the plot was solid. So if that is what you are seeking, go read, you won't be disappointed. I'm sure on this occasion my inability to connect with the characters was down to me as just about everyone else has enjoyed it. ...more

This was a free book so I didn't know that it was part of another series. I thought it was a first in a new series called Decorah Security. I think the book was okay but I am not sure that I am wanting to know more about these characters or the story line. It was under 200 pages which lately seems short to me. ...more

This sounded interesting, but it was a little erotic for me. The characters had potential, but the plot was weak and the sex seemed to be thrown in there without much meaning. I'm not sure I will read this author again. Maybe if I can find something with more of a Suspenseful Romance, but this wasn't it. ...more

Lady and werewolf private eyes team up to go aboard a gigantic ship-borne S&M playground and try to rescue a kidnap victim from among the other people being held in slavery. So if you are looking for any shred of plausibility, look elsewhere. Might appeal to people who liked both Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey.

Ok so I was looking for something to read and this series has been on my iPad for awhile so I decided to start it. I had already read was building up to something good until we made it to the ship and things were a bit confusing and all over the place. I will continue with the rest of the series because I just can't stop in the middle of a series. ...more

This series was already going too far away from werewolves into SciFi. Now it’s made an abrupt turn into a detective story involving S&M. I know it’s a connection with another series, but the connection feels too forced and I don’t fell the main couple’s connection.

So here’s another one I’m passing on. Too many different genres in the soup for me.
Wow! That was quite a ride! A fast paced crime thriller with an erotic and paranormal twist. I loved the mix. Quite a talent to get the reader so engaged with characters over so few pages; I was hooked!

I really enjoyed this novella so much so that I could ignore the few errors that were missed during editing/proofreading.

I will be looking out for more books in this "Decorah Security" series.
