Shelves: angsty
This was a very good read but stressful. There is a lot of internal angst due to the main characters not communicating or trusting each other's feelings...or their own, for that matter. They also do not explain themselves after a crisis is past. I still love Max, but Cee Cee annoyed me for a great portion of the book...until I felt sorry for she may be growing on me. The external angst is fierce and getting fiercer as the trackers are coming for Max. I am very compelled to continue thi ...more
I'm done with this series. I can't stand Cee Cee, I want the shifters to eat her.

ETA: I can't believe this book has so many glowing reviews.

3.5 Stars

The romance between Detective Charlotte “Cee Cee” Caissie and newly minted crime boss, Max Lavoie, is progressing at a natural pace (that is to say all hot and heavy), when Max becomes the prime suspect in a series of murders targeting those closest to a local politician. In order to maintain her objectivity, Charlotte must distance herself from Max, but work behind the scenes to clear his name. Unfortunately, Max has dark secrets that are not helping the situation…

3.5 stars
Charlotte and Max are going through a rough time as they navigating their relationship. Max taking over Legere's empire isn't making her job as a detective very easy as Max is always the number 1 suspect when things go down. With the rape and murders of a politician widely known to oppose Max's business interests, many people are questionin Detective Caissie's objectivity and loyalty. Will this new investigation end their relationship or will they continue to compromise To make it work?

I have to admit for a good portion of the book I wanted the shifters to eat Cee Cee. I was disappointed to read in the beginning that Max and Cee Cee were back to distrust and non-communication. Cee Cee annoyed the heck out of me with her sitting on the fence when it came to her relationship with Max. It was probably only the last 40% of the book that worked for me. Cee Cee claimed her man and finally they made some progress. For books 1 and 2 it was one step forward and two steps back
5 Amazing Stars

WOW and OMG. This are the first words that comes to my mind how to describe this book and does NOT need another introduction, in my opinion of course. But if you love to read PNR books, i highly recommend this one. Purely amazing, heartbreaking and phenomenal. You don't really want to miss out on a great book.

Chased By Moonlight is the second book in Nancy Gideon's By Moonlight series. I'm happy to say they just get keep getting better and better! Max Savoie is now the head of Legere's Crime Organization, and Charlotte Caissie is still a New Orleans Police Detective in charge of two murder investigations that hit way too close to home for her. One - they are a revolting reminder of the nightmare she endured at the hands of Legere's goons as an innocent teenager and two - the man she is sleeping with ...more

Chased by Moonlight adalah buku ke dua dari Seri Moonlight dan menceritakan kelanjutan kisah Charlotte Caissie (Cee Cee) dan Max Savoie di Masked by Moonlight :-)

This is the second installment in a series about the shapeshifter Max and his lady cop love, Charlotte. The fact that Max turns into a vicious wolf doesn't seem to bother Charlotte and is only one of the reasons that Max loves this prickly lady. In the first book, Charlotte couldn't make up her mind if she was going to commit all the way to Max or not. While this was annoying, it is understandable. Charlotte is a conscientious policewoman, sworn to uphold law and justice. Max is a gangster. In a ...more

The adventures continue. Cee cee and Max are destined to be together. As much as things tear them apart, then are able to mend the relationship, much like Max can mend his body when he needs to. These two each have a past that impacts their current lives and those around them. While different situations, the past comes back to haunt each of them in their own lives and in their relationship.

Even though Max is a hardass in business dealings, he proves to have a sensitive heart especially where Ce

I really enjoyed this book but I also didn't enjoy this book due to how they were constantly pulled a part. And I'm excited for the next book due to how this one ended.

There is a murder CeeCee must investigate rather than get her week off like she was supposed to. The murder victim, someone killed by tooth and claw, which points to Max, or someone like Max. It really irritated me how people treated Cee Cee and how she kept thinking the worst of Max instead of thinking. However she still had his
This one was better than the first. In fact I was really loving it. Until about halfway though it was implied that Max was seeing other women when they had a break in there relationship. When he was trying convince his dad that she meant nothing to him, and so he could get close enough to find out what he needed to know. So he had to fit into his dads drinking and whoring ways. I didn't like the way this was handled I don't like when authors use that in the plot. On a better note Max seems to be ...more
It only cost 25 cents. Rinse. Lather. Repeat. It only cost 25 cents. At least there was a twist at the end. Otherwise it would have totally sucked. And I had very, very low expectations going in....

Wowweee. Nancy Gideon can write and she has an editor....

Story development is moving right along, getting to know the characters a bit better, solved a crime and got to know the 'outside' characters more thoroughly. I'm liking it, NOLA really doesn't seem to play a bit part in the stories yet, other than a few streets and landmarks, hopefully as the stories progress she will as well.

Wish I had of found this series earlier, but I'll hurry up and read it and hopefully her next series are just a go

Another riveting winner! From reading the back jacket I wasn't too sure I wanted to start the series I had a few of them, but I read the first one today, the second one today, and I'm going to go and start the third one!! Had to order the fourth, aargh! It's not going to come fast enough! The story of charlotte & max is great- interesting situation, when you don't see in shifter novels! More amazing stuff coming down the pipeline makes it very attractive to keep grabbing the next book!

good book
Po přečtení prvního dílu se zajímavým koncem, jsem se rozhodla, že si musím přečíst i druhý. V závěru prvního dílu si autorka totiž nachystala půdu pro další díl. Nemohla jsem nechat příběh Charlotte a Maxe nedokončený, a tak jsem se s chutí vrhla na druhý díl. Zároveň musím podotknout, že i obálka byla jedním z důvodů, proč jsem si chtěla knihu přečíst.

Detektiv Charlotte Caissieová zkráceně CéCé se od minulého dílu změnila jen málo. Omezila nošení triček s výstřihem a zvolila Maxovy košile. Jej
Král je mrtev, ať žije král. I tak by se dalo přiblížit, co se děje v new orleanském podsvětí. Max Savoie převzal vládu nad mafiánským impériem, které léta budoval jeho patron Legere. Ne každý je ale s nastalou situací spokojen a Max tak stojí před nepřáteli z vlastních řad. V městě navíc někdo začíná vraždit ženy. Loví je, brutálně znásilní a poté zabije. Stopy vedou k Maxovi, oběti totiž byly úzce svázané s odvěkým nepřítelem Jimmyho Legera. Případu se na příkaz nadřízeného i přes svou citovou ...more

Nancy Gideon does it again with another great shapeshifter romance that is guaranteed to knock your socks off (or making you go running out of them). Full of fangs and claws, peppered with just the right amount of passion, CAPTURED BY MOONLIGHT is the third in the Moonlight Trilogy and an excellent addition to the series.

If you remember my review of Masked by Moonlight, Cee Cee and Max were just finding themselves drawn to each other. Now, the passion between them is hotter than ever before, but

They’re back!!! Chased by Moonlight sees the return of New Orleans detective CeeCee Caissie and her shape shifter lover Max Savoie in book 2 of this great series from Nancy Gideon. And the action picks up right were book 1 leaves off. For full value and to truly appreciate the complexities of the relationship between Max and CeeCee’s, you really should read the 1st book in the series Masked by Moonlight - you will not be disappointed - it was a fabulous book!

Chased by Moonlight is Nancy Gideon’s 2nd book in a trilogy about the shape shifter Max Savoie and his Detective Charlotte Caissie. In this next suspenseful book Charlotte and Max are just beginning as a couple and although they love each other the strain of a high profile murder and issues with commitment makes their newfound relationship shaky. This was an enjoyable paranormal with many sub plots that made it a fascin

I enjoyed this book very much. Nancy Gideon is an excellent writer. Her stories are always intriguing with many layers to unwrap until you finally finish the book and say, "hey wait...I don't want it to end. I want more."

The story takes place in New Orleans, however, she has created a paranormal world within the city where a clan of shape-shifters live and work among humans.

"Chased" is the second of four books with the same hero and heroine. This isn't typical. We have all read trilogies or ser

Yummy! Delicious! Scrumptious!

Nancy Gideon has done it again, with her second book in the Moonlight Series—Chased by Moonlight.

They’re back! The mouth-watering Max and the lovely Charlotte have returned, their relationship is growing, and their connection is undeniable.

Max Savoie has gone from being a mob boss’s bodyguard to now becoming the top dog of the New Orleans mob scene. He will give it all away if that’s what it takes to keep Charlotte in his life.

The story continues with Cee Cee & Max trying to make their relationship work within the confines of her police work and his mob business. Bodies are still being found in spite of Spratt being dead. And now Max has to cope with a strange yet powerful shifter in town, one that offers to reveal Max’s past. (We get a lot of good information on Max’s history.) In fact, most of the story is about his history.

The whole premise of Cee Cee still not trusting Max is absurd. He’s killed, yes, but sh
I enjoyed the heck out of this one! So much more than the first book. My only real complaint~ no audio for this series :(

Cee Cee is called in to investigate the gruesome murder of a young woman. All evidence points to a werewolf and that puts her in an extremely precarious position. Although werewolves remain a myth to most humans, she knows they are real. After all, she's in a relationship with a very powerful one.

Charlotte is now having to deal with his new role. before he was behind the scene and now he is out front in the organization and in the media. Now they must figure out how to balance their romance.

This is my first book from Nancy Gideon. I had not realized it was bk 2 in the moonlight series, but decided to give it a shot. In the beginning I thought it was a little slow, Cee cee and Max already knew each other and the courtship was not there. It got really good in the middle. I fell in love with Max because he really loves Cee Cee and he kept telling her he did. Cee Cee seemed aprehensive about being with him and committing. But they don't only have to worry about their feelings, someone ...more
Chased by Moonlight didn't disappoint. This series has become one of my favorites. Max is struggling in his new position as leader, taking over for Jimmy, while maintaining his relationship with cop and lover, Catherine.

Catherine is put in a difficult position by her Godfather and boss, stop seeing Max or take herself off the latest murder case, where, surprise, Max is a suspect. She chooses to stop seeing Max while she works the case.

In the meantime, Max is struggling and needs her support
Another great Gideon book in the moonlight series. I love the layers its developing in the world. I never expected to actually reread these books - just to skim a few of the important scenes - but I find I'm really enjoying myself. However, I didn't like this book quite as much as the first. Mostly because I'm struggling with the back-and-forth and lack of faith they have in each other. I want them to be happy =( of course, I do realize that as soon as that happens, the excitement can be gone. B ...more

Shut up and put out Savoie." "You are so romantic, detective." She chained rough kisses about his neck. "What if I can't perform under this unexpected pressure?" Her hand dropped below his belt for an assessing fondle. "Just my luck. Appears to be high performance all the way." He chuckled and began to nuzzle and nip at her rather roughly, his attention supercharged by her aggression. "And what kind of handling are you looking for?" "Fast and reckless” 7 likes
