Most readers have one or a couple of books one of their favourite authors has written that they know are weaker than the author's later books or series and they still love them.

Ripple Creek Werewolf has only two books and I love them both. You can see the beginnings of Riley Jensen Guardian, the customs and rules of shifter society, their sexual freedom. There aren't any other races in these two books, only wolves. Those will come in other series set in this world.

A lot of people are tired of the soulmate theme, but Keri Arthur used that same theme and made it beautiful. Besides, I wouldn't mind the certainty. Both men and women in Keri Arthur's world do wait for the one, but they also have partners before that happens. All her characters are unapologetically sexual.

Neva Grant's sister is in a coma. Savannah is a Ripple Creek ranger and she was hunting for a killer what she was attacked. All the evidence points to someone from the Sinclair clan, who often organize wolf dances in their mansion (where they choose partners for that full moon). Neva decides to get to the bottom of it all by seducing the only Sinclair who is not under suspicion.

An exciting new series from an enjoyable author. Ripple Creek werewolf reservation isn't part of the Riley Jensen world like the Darkness series. It was started before either of them with this book. I read the reprint version.

I really did read this in only a few hours. The pages just flew. ( )

I couldn't get past book 2 of Arthur's Riley Jenson series but this was oh so much better. I was pleasantly surprised. It's set in the same world with the same "rules" and although I believe the story to be forgettable but it was an incredibly satisfying read.

The characters were well rounded and mostly likeable. When I say mostly, I mean Duncan when he turned into a bastard and started pushing Neva too far, hurting her and damaging her relationship with her parents even if she did need to stand up to them he didn't have to force her to do it in such a horrible way.

The story was interesting and engrossing. I'm not usually a fan of so much sex in my books because the plot suffers more often than not. In this case it didn't. Yay! ( )

This is a re release of an earlier book that had some extra editing. There werewolves are different in this book than in her other series but they do share a lot of similarities. Neva is trying to find out who attacked her twin sister by trying to get close to a son of another pack of werewolves. Duncan knows she is up to something but not sure what but he is trying to find out who is attacking and killing people and blaming his pack. A bit of star-crossed lovers plot line but a nice fluffy read. ( )

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Neva would do anything to find her sister’s would be killer, even if it means ruining her reputation by being with Duncan Sinclair. Duncan is a well known playboy who makes no promises. Will they work together to find a killer or let suspicions get in the way?

Opening Sentence: The music swirled through the darkness, its beat rich and seductive.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

This book is a very steamy romantic mystery. Neva Grant is a werewolf and a twin. Her twin, Savannah and she are linked and can share thoughts and feelings. It is because of this that Neva experiences Savannah’s attack. Neva makes a vow that she will find the person responsible for hurting her sister. To do so she seduces Duncan Sinclair, a renowned playboy. Duncan has his own reasons for wanting to find the person responsible for killing three women and injuring another. Neva and Duncan can either help each other or hinder each other. If they can get past appearances and reputations they may just find a killer and their soul mates.

Neva Grant is a man’s dream come true. She has long golden hair, dark green eyes and a really nice figure. Even Duncan, a man who has been with many others, is drawn to her. Thankfully though, Neva has more going for her than looks or I would not have liked her. Neva is very loyal to her twin sister and would do anything for her even if it means hooking up with a bad boy and stalking down a killer. At first Neva came off seeming too timid and controllable, but as the story progresses Duncan helps bring out her wild side and unintentionally helps her stand up to her very controlling parents. As I mentioned before, Neva is a werewolf like so many others in her home town. There are two packs that are the most dominant. The pack that Neva belongs to is called the Golden Pack, and the other pack is called, the Silver Pack.

If Neva is a guy’s fantasy then Duncan is a woman’s fantasy. He is tall, dark and handsome. He is also athletically built, gives off a dangerous air, and very protective of his pack. Duncan and the Sinclair’s are from the Silver pack. At first Duncan acts like a jerk and he is hard to like, but once he realizes he has made an error in judgment he becomes a different guy all together. No one can look past his past and so he tends to act like his old self to protect himself.

This book was a very good book. If you love mysteries you may like this one. Of course if you do not enjoy a lot of intimate behavior then maybe this book is not one you should read. I think though that even with all of the intimate details there was enough else going on to make it an enjoyable read. The villain becomes clear fairly quickly but the reasons behind it take longer to figure out.

Notable Scene:

I remember that smell. It belonged to the wolf who attacked me. Fear flashed though her, spreading like fire through her body, lending her feet greater speed. He’s in the hospital with you? Not in the room. Sav hesitated. But close.

FTC Advisory: Bantam Dell/Random House provided me with a copy of Beneath a Rising Moon. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )

Book description
On the werewolf reservation of Ripple Creek, a killer is on the loose. Three women are dead, their bodies mutilated and faces slashed. A fourth, Neva Grant?s twin, lies in the hospital, fighting for her life. Psychically linked, Neva shared the horror of her twin attack and makes a silent vow by her sister?s hospital bed. She?ll hunt down the killer, if Savannah finds the strength to live. The Rangers believe the killer is a member of the Sinclair pack, but Neva knows the Sinclairs will never talk to an outsider. To begin the hunt, she first has to seduce a Sinclair?and then she has to keep him interested long enough to find the killer. The only Sinclair not under suspicion is a wolf with a hard drinking, hard loving reputation. But has she got what it takes to attract a man with such experience? Neva doesn?t know, but for her sister?s sake, she has to try.Duncan Sinclair has been called back home to find a killer, and he wants nothing more than to complete his task and get out of the town for which he has no love. Then he?s approached by a wolf who obviously has more than seduction on her mind, and he finds himself ensnared in a growing web of desire and deceit.As the murders continue and the killer?s shadow draws ever closer, Duncan and Neva find themselves having to trust each other in order to survive. But can they trust the emotions flaring between them? Or will the lies of the present, the deeds of the past, and a killer?s bloody intentions tear them apart?
