When a handsome stranger whispers these three little words to Sarah Marcel, she knows her life is forever changed.

For two weeks straight, Sarah’s been unable to eat, sleep, or even form a coherent thought properly. She fears she’s losing her mind until a chance encounter brings a man into her life who seems to hold the key to solving her problems. With a single touch, he’s able to ease her troubled soul and bring her some much-needed peace. Yet, just as Sarah believes she’s found the solution to her dilemma, he disappears.

As Sarah begins to unravel a mystery surrounding her family’s past, she quickly discovers her role in a world that’s hidden from most humans. Being a Marcel comes with certain responsibilities, and there are some things that you can’t hide from forever.

WARNING – SPOILERS MAY ENSUE BEYOND THIS POINT – REVIEW BELOW

I’m going to give Moonshade by S.J. West the benefit of the doubt. The book wasn’t perfect – I certainly ran into a fair number of typos and there were a few aspects of the romance and the plot that could have been handled better. None of that matters in the long-run, however.

I enjoyed the book. The world-building was new and unique. I liked the characters. I found the writing engaging and easy to follow. All the little points I wish had been perfected are barely mentionable in comparison to all the things I liked about the story.

Overall, I’m glad I read the book. If you like vampire stories, paranormal romance, or fantasy, you’ll most likely enjoy this book. I encourage you to give it a try.
