Valentine Lobo is the last werewolf left in all the Coral System.
Genetically engineered to give him and heir, Mirella Canalis is the woman he is destined to marry.
What starts like an arranged marriage soon becomes a passionate union of complementary souls, but politics and jealousy threaten the newlyweds’ happiness.
The Fifth Moon’s Wolf is the first title in The Fifth Moon’s Tales and is also part of the Bad Boy Alpha world.
***Gifted in exchange for my honest review***
What I adore most about Monica La Porta is her world building, now this one is a bit different to the series I have read so far set in Rome, But there is a salute to the past in the traditions that have made their way in the centuries since the Shifter’s of Earth have set out from earth to colonize the galaxies.
Valentine Lobo is the last werewolf left in all the Coral System and boy he is worthy of Ms Laporta’s stable of Leading men ( Marcus, Alex and Samuel are in my top Ten Book boyfriend list) I am hooked already on this brooding Leading Man, he has a lot on his shoulders, and these Coral System Wolves are no longer able to shift, the wolf inside trapped but they are still stronger than normal humans.
When Valentine’s Genetically engineered bride, Mirella Canalis is attacked he goes against tradition to keep her safe. Taking her to his home where the passion ignites – Mirella may have been specifically designed to breed with Valentine, but his wolf wakes and wants more than just an arranged marriage, Valentine soon begins to thaw, and when Politics and hidden agendas threaten both the relationship and the peace of the Coral System, can Mirella figure out who is against her before Valentine duels in battle to the death?
This book had me thinking about the characters every time I had to put it down, I finally got to sit and finish it on Friday… and OH heck I want book two ASAP.
Monica has a hit on her hands – this is a must read series if you are into Paranormal.
