Shelves: fantasy, romance
While I did give this delightful little romance 4 stars, I will be the first to admit this certainly is not great literature. It was, however, tender-hearted and a real pleasure to read. Maddie, the prim assistant principal at the local high school, was burned badly in love three years ago and she is determined for that never to happen again. However, sometimes her hormones, assisted by some sort of influence from that "devil moon" get the best of her once in a while. After drinking entirely too ...more

A good love story! Not my usual genre, but a cute story with some mystery and the usual small town problems,ie. exwife,bad habits, unplanned pregnancy, and all with that Devil Moon thrown in.!

Round Table Review—That Devil Moon by Dana Taylor
Reviewer: Beverly Forehand

Maddie Harris has her life completely in order. She's a successful assistant principal with her own home. She has loyal friends and a loving family. She's perfectly happy with her life. So what if people think she's a bit prim and that her routine borders on

This woman has a messy and public breakup that was publicized in the papers because she was a part of snobby society groups and her fiance had been taking advantage of his students... a lot of his students. So, she ups and leaves Boston to go to Arkansas where she owns a house inherited from her dead grammy, her father's mother.

So then she goes outside at night, gets naked and sobs until a strange man wanders by and 'comforts her.' Yeah. That. On one of her grandmother's old quilts which she

this is a weird book. I'm not entirely certain how to take it, but it was certainly an entertaining read.
Maddie's a straight-laced assistant principal from a small town. The devil moon draws her out one night, for a tryst in the sand with an anonymous stranger. When she finds herself pregnant from that misadventure, she doesn't want to look bad to the small town she's living in... and then there's Phil Wilcox. He's the new football coach, and in almost all ways he's the opposite of Maddie. Yet

A nice little romantic comedy with a bit of mysticism mixed in. The characters (main and secondary) were very likeable, the protagonists had been through the kind of life experiences that made for a good story. I liked that the plot wasn't simply cookie-cutter - until toward the end. I don't want to give away spoilers and this is a personal preference, but I've never been a big fan of catfights.

I'm giving this one 3 1/2 stars (I only wish GR and Amazon allowed for half-stars), which for my

Once again, Dana Taylor has succeeded in bringing out a wide range of emotions in her reader throughout this book. You'll cheer on characters, worry for them, fret over their decisions, laugh, cry. Toss in some good, old, edge-of-the-seat suspense with a side of Grammy's ghost and you have a book you won't want to put down till you finish it.

A cute story with an entertaining cast of characters. I have been on a romance kick of late and this fit the bill. Not exciting but a pleasant journey to the Ark. Ozaraks-- a place that has many a fond childhood memory for me as my grandmother lived part of her life down there.

An easy little romance read. For sure not gret literature, but I enjoyed it. Not bad for a free e-read.
didn't finish it just could not get into the book ... (there needs to be a way to get rid of a book with out finishing it)

Cute beginning. Free amazon book. But it was predictable and towards the end, it was dragging. But, worth a free read :-)
