I’m just going to go ahead and admit this right now. When I first read the synopsis for this novel I thought it was all over the place. Here we have twenty-six year old Shelby Flint who inherits her grandfather’s ranch; the same ranch she was raised on by said grandfather and helped maintain throughout the years. On top of having to run the ranch by herself now, she has to deal with her money hungry cousins suing her as they believe she put their grandfather up to willing her the land instead of ...more

Imagine you're on a roller coaster. You get to the part where you're click-clacking up the hill and you're thinking to yourself, "Huh, I don't know about this."

You hit the top and start rolling downhill full speed and you're screaming "YAY, WOOHOO!"

The ride ends, you pull into the station and go, "I just waited in line a hour, for that?"

BUT you know, damned well, you're going to go wait in line for another hour jumping up and down with excitement the whole time.

So concludes my extremely juvenil

I reviewed this book for promotional book tours for an honest review.

This book is amazing. I loved it. It was very well written and sucked me in from page one.

I found myself thinking about the wolf a lot since he wasn't scary to her. I had 2 different ideas of who the wolf was. There was a twist thrown in there though that I didn't see coming. That is when you know its a good book!

I wonder though if the marijuana grower was put there by her greedy cousins to try and get her to give up the farm.

This was an absolutely fantastic read! I had a heck of a time putting the book down in order to take care of my normal daily activities (i.e. take care of my son, eat, sleep, etc.). Cait Lavender does a wonderful job in bringing the action and romance in this story about how a woman comes to accept werewolves in her life. Being that I knew the story had werewolves in it, I was able to see where some of the story was going when the main character Shelby could not. I think Cait did a wonderful job ...more

Hunter Moon by Cait Lavender what can I say but "Oh my god".  I couldn't put it down.  The hot and cold dance that Cash and Shelby were doing made me want to take a cold shower.  The gun packing woman that Shelby is would have made mot men high-tail it and run.  But as a lupine they mate for life and he realized that he needed to go about mating with her a different way hence the appearance of "Fang".  I would give this book a 5.5 stars it left me crying out at the end wanting to have a continua ...more

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book from the author, I was not disappointed. Shelby was instantly likable, you can imagine her as your best friend. I read the entire book in an afternoon, I literally couldn't put it down. I had a million things to do, plus a 2 year old running around, and I couldn't stop reading this book. I loved the action, and I definitely loved the steamier scenes. Cait Lavender is one to watch, she has such a talent. I cannot wait to read the next book in the seri ...more

Like earlier stated...I read this for Ever After Pr for my honest opinion.

The cover may be slightly crappy, but don't let that keep you away from this book! Just summary alone makes me want to re-read this. Perhaps it was the promise that all the reviews I've for this book was positive or I'm a huge werewolf kick right now. Well, I love those werewolves, but lately I've been wanting read non-stop werewolf fun!

The story began off a little slow and it made me groan slightly. Once the game warden a

My Review:
Shelby is one tough cowgirl and, for this California rancher, it seems like everything in her life has become extremely complicated lately. Her grandfather died a year ago, leaving her alone to run the ranch. She grew up with him as truly her only family. Now greedy relatives are trying to steal the ranch from her and she's barely making it financially as it is. So when she comes upon a large wolf among her calves, she is terrified and more than a little angry that he's trying to st
Sadie Forsythe
I really quite enjoyed Hunter Moon. I found Shelby's prickly cowgirl persona appealing. I liked her sarcastic narration (even if it was largely in first person). Cash was sexy and protective without falling over into overbearing territory too often and I adored his exposed, vulnerable moments. The side characters were colourful, the writing easy to read, and it was really quite clean. There was a lot of sexual tension, but no actual sex. All-in-all a satisfying read.

A lot of page-time was dedic

What I Loved:

There is so much in this book to love! I have to say that Shelby is a very feisty woman and very interesting main character. So feisty, in fact, that I couldn't believe that some of the other characters put up with her- I have a hard time they found her feistiness as entertaining as I did. The leading male protagonist, and Shelby's love interest is about as typical tall, dark, and handsome as they come- though he never comes off the page as typical or cliche- on the contrary he was

First, I have to say I am not the biggest Werewolf fan but I absolutely loved this book. When I first started "Hunter Moon" I thought it would be another "insta-romance” paranormal romance story. You know what I mean. Two terribly attractive people meet, they share some witty banter back and forth, add a cup of water, 30 seconds in the microwave, stir, 30 more seconds and BAM you have the plot of 90% of the romance novels on the shelves.

So when I met rough around the edges Shelby, and all Ameri
Hunter Moon by Cait Lavender tells the story of Shelby Flint, a tough as nails rancher, trying to run her grandfather’s ranch on her own. Her grandfather has died, and her cousins are contesting the will, and her right as owner of the ranch. Amidst all of the family drama, and the daily ranch duties, Shelby is dealing with a pot grower on her land, and a lone wolf that appears on her property. The incident with the wolf brings the new game warden, Cash onto her property, into her life, and worki ...more

When I first read the summary I thought for sure it was going to be the mystery/western/romance type of book...not my favorite but I decided to try it.

Shelby Flint isn't your typical herione, she's an outspoken, strong-willed, gun-slinging, ill tempered cowgirl. Her inner monologues had me in a stitch throughout the book. I was convinced at first that no one would break her hard exterior...that is until Cash Newcomb, the new warden shows up. The passion between the two was intense and Cash had

I absolutely loved this book. Shelby is a real, honest to goodness kick-butt cowgirl.(Cowwoman? LOL) The details of life on a cattle ranch in California really fascinated me,and it is obvious Cait Lavender knows her stuff! Poor Shells has plenty of problems on her plate. Her cousins are upset she inherited Grandpa's ranch and,in spite of being rich and having nothing to do with grandpa when he was alive,they are now suing for their 'fair share'. There's a huge wolf terrorizing her cattle and her ...more

I discovered Cait when I read the anthology Cupid Painted Blind and knew I had to read more of her work. I immediately downloaded and read Cowboy Moon and Hunter Moon and read them in that order. I enjoyed this book very much and after the first few chapters I could not put it down. I actually read until 5am. I have to admit it did take the first few chapters for me to get into the story. I think it was because I know absolutely nothing about about horses, cattle,ranches etc. I think if you are ...more

As you can tell from the synopsis, this book incorporates many interesting topics - greed, money problems, keeping a farm, marijuana growers, handsome man, and finally bravery. Before I begin any book I always look at the front cover and think if it would be interesting. Believe me, I do this! I once bought a book called "White Trash Zombie" because it looked funny with a zombie smoking a cigarette. I made my prediction that the book will be about the lady on the cover and the warden will be the ...more

Hunter Moon is an enjoyable story. The one thing I did love about it were the characters! Shelby is one tough lady. I loved that she was strong, independent and wasn't afraid to face danger. She also was willing to fight for what was hers. Cash was a great match for Shelby.Their chemistry was sizzling, if not a bit frustrating. But, I did like that they didn't jump in the sack after the first kiss. The peripheral characters rounded out the book nicely.

While I did enjoy the book overall, I felt

Hunter Moon was a very good werewolf read. I really had a lot of fun reading it. I never knew what was going to happen next and I couldn't wait to find out.

Shelby is just an awesome female character! She is a fighter, she is strong, she stands on her own two feet, and needs no one. She was so much fun to read about. As she found herself attracted to Cash she was fighting so hard.

Cash is one hot man! I enjoyed reading about him. He was good looking, strong, and stubborn. He definitely had to be

For all you romance fans, this one's for you. But is doesn't end at that. This little book carries a punch of various different genres - romance, mystery and something else.

If you like men who make you go weak in the knees, you would love this one. If you are into strong female characters (like me. No, not like that , silly!), you have got it here. Shelby is one hell of a woman and I adore her guts. What a character and I mean that in a good way.

This book is hot!

I haven’t read Cowboy Moon, the book that comes before this, but I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything by picking the story with Hunter Moon. Meaning, nothing seems to be left out. It took me a chapter or two to get into this book but by the time the dead body rolled around, I was intrigued. I loved the characters in this book, Cash, a sexy warden, Shelby, a strong, independent cowgirl, Jack, a sexy Green Beret, Cash, again because I love him.

I really don't know what I could say to do this book justice! The modern style writing gives it an edgy feel, while still retaining a clever story throughout. I absoloutly loved the main character, Shelby is so ballsy and has such a wicked sense of humour. I really felt bonded to her from the start. The love interest is manly ,yet vulnerable and it makes you melt. I instantly felt invested in the story and I will stick with the series for sure. It is mainly romace and family based, but there is ...more

First off, I am a HUGE supernatural fan. Werewolves are one of my favs. I've read them all so it takes a REALLY good story to keep me interested. I finished working around 10 one night and figured I'd read a couple chapters before I went to bed. I started reading and the next thing I knew it was 3 am! It was one of the better written supe books I have read in a long time. A original storyline (which is hard to do with werewolves) a great romance story mingled in and plenty of action.

I loved the characters, they stayed true to themselves all the way through. I loved the writing, it kept me turning pages & wishing I could be when I wasn't. I really enjoyed everything Shelby said, did, and thought.

What I did NOT love was the ending. I stayed up til 2am only to find myself standing at the edge of a huge cliff, cursing and stomping! Would have been a 5 star if the "end" had not pissed me off, but I'll try not to be too petulant about it and give it the credit it's due.

This book just ends in the middle of the story. It leaves almost everything unresolved, and looking at the writer's blog, she isn't working the sequel. Don't read this book until the sequel is released (if it ever is, there is nothing that says there will be another one) or you'll just be frustrated. With a sequel or more issues resolved, this would have been a 5. There are two books in this series, both have different characters and plots. Both leave you hanging with the ASSUMPTION it'll be exp ...more

I'm normally not a paranormal romance fan but I read this book because it takes place near where I live. I was pulled into the story immediately and couldn't put it down! Hunter Moon has lots of action and suspense, I'd almost be tempted to call it a Mystery Romance. I really enjoyed the main character's inner monologue, she made me laugh out loud. I am looking forward to the next installment in the series.

Excellent heroine excellent hero great charactors excellent friend lots of potential but i'm still steamed about the the way it ended 2 hours later! Would have given it 5 stars but for that
