This novella was a quick but fun read featuring Harley and Jocelyn who both have a bit of shifter in them. Both are captured and experimented on by an evil group out to exterminate shifters. While it was an enjoyable read, I think I would prefer it even more if it had been a novel rather than a novella. The storyline was good but I think had it been less rushed and more developed it would have been a much better read.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Unfortunately, he finds himself in quite the predicament, and he's alone with only himself to try and get out ...more

I seem to read too much of this author’s work this way, picking up the series part way through. This was a really fantastic blend of romantic suspense with the paranormal. Mix in some military special forces and this may just be the recipe to my Nirvana. Harley and Jocelyn are both strong, independent characters, but they’re able to work well together when the chips are down. The story itself may not be a cliff-hanger, but the overall story arc has me biting my nails waiting to learn if they’re ...more

How much torture can one shifter endure before he comes undone under the pressure?

Captured by Justice and tortured, Harley knew one truth...he had to save the girl.
Curvy, sexy and strong as hell, in the face of her captors, Jocelyne never flinched. But Harley did. He tore through bars laced with silver to get to her. He tore a man's throat out because he'd touched her.
With her lavender eyes sparking like sapphires and thick, gorgeous hair down to her waist,

I absolutely loved this book, but I did use a few tissues mopping away both sad and happy tears.

'Broken Moon' is the second book in the Order of Protection series of stand alone paranormal romances by Catherine Vale and I was given a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review. I love Catherine Vale's books and usually devour them in one go, but I had a bit of struggle with this one and had to have a break to go deal with some pesky tears.

This is a standalone novella with an HEA that reads like a series opener. On the downside, there is a more graphic description of Coulter's torture than is necessary to convey the image it brings to mind. But once we get past that, the story moves well. I liked both of the main characters, but the General was more two dimensional in his supporting role. The ending was awesome, though, which made up for the hiccups along the way.

After getting experimented on - poked, prodded, sliced, burned - a woman gets brought in to an adjoining cell. Jocelyn is Harley's commander's daughter.

They have to escape, and he is provoked into doing just that, and they make their escape (having sex shortly after).
