This is the second book in Lisa Kesslers "Moon " series and is easily a standalone novel but I do feel that it would be better if readers where to read "Moonlight " first . Ms Kessler has written about a world with shifters in it and her take on werewolves and jaguar shifters is not to be missed.
The two central characters here are Aren a werewolf and Sasha a jaguar shifter. They previously met when Sasha was acting as an assassin for Nero , a secret organisation that's trying to build its own

Meet Aren a born werewolf shifter who after being shot by Sasha dragged her to safety during the foiled kidnap attempt of Lana. Aren has been shadowing Sasha and killing people sent by Nero to take her back. The reason? She is his mate.

I enjoyed Hunter’s Moon quite a bit more than book 1; it helped that I already had a feel for Kessler’s wolves and the history between the main couple definitely helped make this installment’s insta-love romance more believable. The Nero plot line continues to add intrigue and an element of danger to this series’ story arc which means that there’s plenty of action on both sides of the bedroom door. All-in-all, another solid werewolf book from Lisa Kessler!

Received the arc for a honest review. Pardon the pun on this but this was a howling excellent hot read. Howling is used because it brought to mind the call in the wild that the wolves do to communicate with each other. And no matter in a pack the Alpha knows when something isn't right and that is exactly what Adam knows with Aren. In this one of the series follow Aren and Sasha's ups and downs,out of control situations and hair raising danger they encounter. This is one hot intense wolf male ...more

My new favorite couple!

With the blurb doing such a great job of laying out the basics of HUNTER'S MOON let me skip resummarizing it and jump into why I loved it.

Kessler has quickly become an "auto-buy" author for me. Not only does she have an exceptional talent for taking paranormal romance staples and giving them great new elements that rock, she has an amazing gift for voice. I don't care for first-person alternating perspectives much, and especially not in romances, but she managed to really

I am typically a sucker for the hero from the very first book in a series, but I gotta say, I think Aren might have topped Adam with this one. Sasha and Aren are great as a team and when Sasha finally lets her guard down, they become an amazing couple.

Hunter’s Moon is a more than worthy successor to the first book in Kessler’s Moon series, Moonlight. In fact, any author who is thinking about using the fated-mate trope should check out this series for an example of using that otherwise tired trope in a way that is definitely NOT a short cut to romance and is still filled with both loads of romantic and suspenseful tension.

The story of Hunter’s Moon picks up a few months after Moonlight, and is a bit
Ready for a romp on the wild side? Then you just need to explore Lisa Kesslers Moon Series.. When one wolf shifter discovers his mate is a Jaguar it's rather unique, when his twin discovers the same thing it's getting a bit weird here. I mean cats and dogs?? But seriously, it's not bad enough that their mates are cats but Aren's mate, Sasha, is the assassin who was sent to capture Adam's mate. Leading to a domino effect.. the death of their Alpha (and father) as well as another pack mate. if ...more

This follow-up in the Moon series was just as addicting and sexy as the first! I was so happy to see these incredible characters back for more, and Sasha and Aren’s story was full of the dangerous thrills, steamy tension, and painful heartache that we all love!

Sasha knew she was in a bad way; the Nero Organization was hell-bent on ending her life, but she was doing everything in her power to keep herself and her little sister safe. She had her work cut out for her, because after the hell she put

I love shifter books. Werewolves, dragons, jaguars, bears – if there is a bit of animal in that human, I want to read about it. It’s a sickness…my friends make fun of me…but when there are books out there like Hunter’s Moon, it’s easy to explain why this sub-genre pulls me in.

This book centers around the lives and romance of Aren and Sasha. He’s a werewolf but his pack doesn’t hide out in the woods and kill innocents. They’re businessmen, doctors,

WOW just when you think Lisa Kessler can't pull off the impossible, she sneaks in, sends you through a whirlwind of emotions, and makes you fall in love with an irredeemable character! We last saw Sasha at the end of Moonlight right after she reeked havoc, by attempting to turn Lana over to Nero, resulting in Malcolm's death. Malcolm was the pack alpha, as well as Adam and Aren's dad,and he died taking a bullet meant for Lana. During the final battle, a wolf is seen dragging Sasha's limp body ...more

4 Stars!

Hunter’s Moon is a very good shifter story. I love how the wolf pack works and there are some very unique twists to the shifters. Like wolfs always come in twins and only the male ones have the shifter gene so women have to be bitten in order to become a wolf shifter and belong to the pack. I liked that it is somehow different from the other paranormal worlds out there. But if you read the first book (Moonlight) you know that this is not so true for the

In Hunter's Moon (Moon #2) by Lisa Kessler, Wolf Aren has every reason to hate Sasha. The jaguar shifter tried to kill both him and his twin brother, Adam, to get to Adam's mate, Lana. The problem is that Sasha is Aren's one and only mate. He curses fate for bringing him someone he can't trust and wonders if he's doomed to live alone craving a woman who doesn't want him.

On the run from the Nero Organization, Sasha isn't sure as to where she'll go. Nor does she know as to how she'll live her life now. There was a time when she believed she had a purpose, that she was doing some good her life. That all changed from the moment she was bitten, and transformed into a jaguar assassin. In a sense, she should count her lucky stars that she's still alive, and able to try to make something of herself. Yet she can't quite come to terms with the fact that her life has ...more

In Moonlight, we learned about Adam Sloan and his finding his mate, Lana, a jaguar. In Hunter's Moon, we read from his twin brother, Aren's, point of view, and his mate: Sasha, a jaguar assassin who had tried to kill him and capture Lana so Nero could experiment on her.

I did not read the first book and was able to read this without feeling lost because enough details from previous events are mentioned, but I will be reading the first story to get the details of how Adam and Lana got together.

Hunters Moon. Lisa Kessler.

I loved Lisa's first book Moonlight, so was really pleased to get the next. Its another cracker with story lines to keep reader engrossed and characters that we can empathise with. Its not a single plot book but one with multiple ones, some that get tied up in this novel, and some that continue the theme that begun in the first – a sort of umbrella plot that all others sideline from.
