BLURB:

My Review:


It 's an historical paranormal novel, with plenty of action, adventure and suspense, much romance and a little of magic.
Rosa has been kidnapped and imprisoned in the castle of Clement, a bad werewolf. Unfortunately, she does not remember anything about her past and is convinced that she had always lived there. But her boyfriend Michael is finally able to find her: at the beginning he is very hurt that she did not recognize him and doesn't want to run away with him, but manages to convince her. They will have to work hard together to be able Rosa to remember her past: luckily Michael is a witch with powers of healing. But Clement will not give up so easily and will pursue them, because even with them fled Rickard, a werewolf with powers very special ....
I really like the atmosphere and the setting of this book: medieval castles, immense forests, witches, werewolves, vampires .....
I enjoyed all the characters: they are well developed, likeable and interesting. Michael is a sweet and gentle hero, Rosa is a woman confused at the same time strong and combative. I really loved the tension and chemistry between the characters.
It's the third book in the series "Moldova Moon": it is better to read books in sequence to a greater understanding of the structure of this society and powers of witches and werewolves, but can be read as standalone, I have only read the first book and I had no great difficulty.

This paranormal is very absorbing and I highly recommend it to both romance and paranormal romance readers.

EXCERPT:

The door flung open and a man stepped into her room. Who was he? The vaguely familiar scent of sandalwood and pine filled her senses. Her heartbeat spiked, but she held her ground and set her chin, determined not to show him an ounce of fear.

There was no denying his masculinity. He was tall and his massive shoulders filled out the cloak he wore. Shadows enveloped most of his features, but she could make out his penetrating amber-hazel eyes through the darkness. A soft gasp escaped her.

He raised his hand and lowered his hood. An inherent strength filled his profile. Confidence. Concern. Relief.

Rosa's breath jammed in her throat. He looked familiar. He smelled familiar.

"Rosa, it's Michael. Let's go."
"I'm not going anywhere with you."

A frown set against his rugged features. "I don't have time to argue -- now put on a warm
dress and cloak."

"No." She was not going anywhere with him despite the relief in his voice.

He sighed and shut the door. Moving with fluid grace, he crossed the room, jerked the
door to her closet open and threw the items he wanted her to wear on her bed. "Get. Dressed."
"No." She was determined not to budge, despite the danger outside.

"Rosa, we're leaving."

"I'm staying."

"Why would you want to stay? Clement kidnapped you."

Disconcerted, she pointedly glanced away from his hard stare. What did he mean by kidnapped? Clement didn't keep her behind bars and feed her only bread and water. Rosa could even go into Brasov to shop as long as Lucien or one of the bodyguards went with her.

"I'm going to take you back to your mother."
