The first of two November releases from Lori Handeland, Pan Macmillan's candidate for the highly contested crown of queen of the supernatural-romantic-thrillers-with-a-kick-ass-female-protagonist. It's rather crowded marketplace in my opinion, then then as a single forty-year-old guy, I guess I'm not the idea target demographic for this stuff! Handeland though is a serious contender - be sure to find out more about her by following this link to her web site.
"Claire Kennedy left Lake Bluff, Georgia, for the bright lights of Atlanta and a promising career in journalism. Now, recovering from a cruel betrayal, she's back in the one place she always felt safe, starting over as Lake Bluff's new mayor. But then trouble comes to town in the form of Malachi Cartwright, a man whose past is as mysterious as his present - a man who awakens something dangerous in sensible, realistic Claire. When a tourist claims to have been mauled by a vicious wolf, and when the attacks turn deadly, Malachi's strange behaviour rouses Claire's suspicions. Could he have a secret agenda and a sinister reason for coming to Lake Bluff? Malachi is the only man who could tempt Claire to succumb to her desires - but he's the last person she can trust. And as an eclipse approaches, the secrets of the hidden moon will come to light, and a deadly enemy will be revealed at last... "
