Genre: Paranormal Romance
Kel O'Conley, DVM, treats supernaturals and their pets. Where else can a witch take a talking familiar for vaccinations or vampires get a stake removed? Kel wants experience in her field before returning to her pack. She's fought tooth and claw for her dream and nothing will stop her. Until Tavis Alger, Heir to a rival pack, appears at her clinic with a gravely injured werewolf. Accustomed to obedience, Tavis doesn't know how to handle Kel—except in the bedroom. She completely disregards Tavis' title, but remains his packmate's best chance at survival. But Tavis' Alpha doesn't trust Kel and swears a blood oath: Should the injured werewolf die, so does Kel. To save herself, Kel proposes a political mating with Tavis despite their bickering. She didn't expect their white-hot attraction or developing feelings, but when more supernaturals are targeted, Tavis and Kel must work together or lose everything.
Kealen, otherwise known as Kel, treats supernatural beings while studying at veterinarian school. She’s an heir to her father’s pack living in a rival pack’s territory. She treats the rival pack if they get hurt and she’s allowed to stay. If they knew she wasn’t barren, like her cousin told the Alpha she is, they’d be on her like fleas on a dog. When Tavis shows up one night at her clinic’s door with an injured werewolf, her life changes forever. She tries in vain to save the dying werewolf but the stakes are ratcheted up a few notches when the Alpha swears a blood oath. If the werewolf dies, she dies.
Tavis is instantly drawn to Kel but fights the attraction. She’s barren, isn’t she? When his Alpha swears a blood oath, Tavis protects her at all costs. She fights him on everything from how she mates to how she conducts herself in public yet he yearns for her. She’s his mate and he’s hers. All that changes when more werewolves are targeted by hunters hell-bent on exterminating supernaturals. When the hunters capture Kel, he’ll risk everything to rescue her. Will he make it in time or will he be too late?
I love paranormal romance, especially when it comes to werewolves, and Moonsworn is one of the most original ones I’ve read. A female Alpha heir? I’ve never heard of such a thing but I’m an instant convert. Kel is strong, fearless and her own woman. Matching her up with another Heir equally strong is brilliant on the author’s part. I want more!
I was hooked from the very beginning and the plot sped along at a quick pace. The action scenes were intense, especially when it came to chasing after the hunters. The romance scenes were hot and the romantic tension between Kel and Tavis gave me all the feels. There’s some heartbreaking scenes, which I won’t divulge, but made me an emotional mess.
If you’re looking for a paranormal romance with a new twist on werewolves, pick up Moonsworn today. I can’t wait for book two!

I'm a wife, mother to two little girls, equestrian, gardener, and of course author. I was an avid reader long before my writing career began in the second grade. My mom soon found the only way to adequately discipline me on the rare (ha!) occurrence I misbehaved was to take away my books. It was awful and effective and I've been devouring any genre of book that catches my eye. As for writing, I love Urban Fantasy, sci-fi, specifically of the dystopian bent, and now Paranormal Romance.
