Him Evidently that particular matter is explored in a subseuent e book on Harleuin s website but that lack of total trust and acceptance even in the epilogue of the book was a problem for me Given that and the Abby issue it almost seemed as though while This is definitely not one of Michele Hauf s better books I had read the series out of order starting with Her Vampire Husband and then read book 1 After enjoying both of those immensely I was looking forward to finding out what the deal was with Severo Instead I found a weak poorly developed "characters and too much cave man mentality I m certainly "and way too much cave man mentality I m certainly this was not the first book I had read by this author or I don t think I would pick up another book by her 15 Stars In this 2nd Wicked Games novel our human heroine Bella runs straight into the arms of Severo the werewolf hero as she s being chased by 3 vampires It seems that her best friend is dating a very jealous vampire who wants Bella out of the picture Bella and Severo fall in love but then vampires attack and turn Bella into one of them Severo hates vampires how can he love his mate now she s his worst enemyThe premise for this one is fantastic In most vampirewerewolf romances both are already supernatural I really liked the idea of Severo falling in love with Bella whilst she s human and then having to overcome his prejudice against vampires The other thing I really admire this one for are the werewolf wolf form sex scenes while not graphic this just not shy away from Beauty and the Beast Most werewolf romances eep things human or beastbeast so this was refreshingThe protagonists are both likeable enough Severo s possessiveness got my hackles up a bit as did Bella s instant forgiveness and naivety but overall I thought both were fine The romance hmmmm The beginning is awful Severo is little than a macho sex beast He wants Bella and nothing will stop him You do feel at least at the beginning their relationship is solely based on lust and this combined with his possessive behaviour Not so endearing However stick with it because it does get better and by the time Bella gets turned into a vamp you are rooting for a happy ending If you like the Underworld Twilight Franchises Moon Kissed will probably appeal It s far from Hauf s finest but it s got a great paranormal universe decent story and at least the characters don t have stupid names Moon KissedBelladonna Reynolds loves to stay fit and being a flamenco dancer it comes with the territory one night as she is jogging she runs into a bit of trouble in the form of three bloodthirsty vampires Luckily she runs into an abandoned warehouse to hide and straight into the arms of Severo
a werewolf as severo is holding her in werewolf As Severo is holding her in arms he realizes that the connections he feels to this woman can only mean one thing that she is destined to be his mate This is just the beginning as the vampires soon begin to stalk Bella and Severo vows to protect her This novel doesn t get really good until about chapter eight before that it is a Romantica and has less of a storyline but once it does ick off the book is fantastic It turns out Bella s best friend who also happens to be a man is dating a vampire which Severo had nick named Elvira in years past for her outrageous appearance When it comes to light that Elvira is the jealous sort it leaves Bella in a world of trouble Though I read this one along with Forever Werewolf this one was not as well written as the first but it still held its own it is a uick and fun read even if it does start off a bit slow story wise For More Reviews be sure to visit my blogs at. Alone wasn't enough Now Bella had taken the form of his most cursed enemy How could he desire the very thing he'd spent his life destroying And even if he did what would the werewolf do to Bella on the next full mo.

story nowing that Bella will be attacked and when that actually happens the reader feels the horror confusion anger andknowing that Bella will be attacked and when that actually happens the reader feels the horror confusion anger and felt by both Severo and Bella Those feelings seem so genuine and organic because we are treated to seeing how the relationship between the two develops from something that starts during a moment of danger and terror evolves into slow acceptance and trust and eventually builds into love Considering the relatively low number of pages in books like this that was an admirable accomplishment and a testament to Hauf s writing skillsThat said I had two very big problems with this book and spoilers are necessary in order for me to delve into themFirst I feel as though Bella accepted becoming a vampire a bit too uickly and easily Yes she struggled with it a bit and there was a relatively lengthy section devoted to her learning how to feed but all in all while I can t say that it doesn t seem to phase her it just seems like she accepts the huge dramatic change a bit too uickly especially given how much the manwerewolf she loves loathes vamps with every fiber of his being The argument could be made that devoting pages to Bella fighting the change or bemoaning it would have been counterproductive and obviously wouldn t have changed anything However it still felt like Bella s acceptance of becoming a vampire came a little too easilyBy far my biggest issue with this book however is that while the reader believes that Bella loves Severo and that he in turn loves her by the end of the book I still felt as though he loved someone else a bit A lot of time is devoted to Severo s backstory with Abby a cat shifterhis familiar who befriended Severo s werewolf and was a very important person in Severo s life The reader is told many times that he truly loved and still loves Abby with all of his heart and there are even multiple framed pictures of her throughout his house one is even hidden behind a toaster in his Revenge of the Land: A Century of Greed, Tragedy, and Murder on a Saskatchewan Farm kitchen Beyond that it is even mentioned that Severo was in love with Abby and wanted to have a sexual relationship with her but she did not reciprocate those feelings Though he says that he accepts that she s in love with another man and he even respects that other man it s still uite clear that he hasn t moved on or moved past his feelings for herSevero tells most of this to Bella after she finds the aforementioned picture behind the toaster and she s mostly okay with it going so far as to think about how she s not jealous when at the end of the book she and Severo holding hands I believe meet up with Abby and her man and Severo drops Bella s hand so that he can literally run up to Abby and give her a big hug Subseuently Abby and Bella do a bit of girl bonding and Bella seems to be perfectly okay with everything All of that really bothered me though At one point Bella even recognizes that the bond between Severo and Abby is deeper than the one she Bella shares with him and basically asks him if he thinks that their connection will ever be as deep as the one he has with Abby to which he replies that he hopes so Moreover while Severo seems to reluctantly accept that Bella has become a vampire going so far as to become a bit aroused when he witnesses her feeding off of another man he still won t allow her to bite. Whether afraid or aroused Bella fled to his lair when threatened by an evil monster of the nightSevero tried toeep Bella his mate safe from the vampiress who held a malicious desire for revenge against him but he. 0stars wtf is wrong with and the authors that this type
Of Behavior Evenbehavior is even much less sexy I m so disgusted right now I almost can t even write this review in the less than ten pages I read the hero smacks his palm over the heroines mouth because simply covering it would have been too easy patronizes her threatens to rape her then sexually assaults her before letting her go with the April 16th: Virginia Tech Remembers knowledge that he can and will find her to get her to payup foreeping three vamps from raping her this is not ok and anyone who makes someone like this a character to idolize deserves to be shot rather than continue perpetrating stories that humanize men like this and promote violence against women I will never read another hauf book again and encourage anyone who stands against men like this to follow suit because I don t care what the character does later in the book there s no redeeming actions like that Loved this book it was easy to get into from start to finish How ever i still dont understand how it all come about Bella was being chased by Vamps as the Vampress was jealous her relationship with Seth her friend Bella was saved by Severo who is a werewolf She confessed it to her friend Seth the day after what happened but new it sounded crazy but he confessed he had been bitten and nows all about vamps the vampress was feasting on him Then further into the book it mentions after her friend was turnedthat the vampress goes ofter friends then family she done it all to get to Severo He new not of her friend Seth or Bella before hand so why did the Vampress target them both that for me has left a large uestioni would also of loved to hear of the faeries that were mentioned Finished this book yesterday I absolutely loved the romance between Bella Severo Love vampires and werewolves I really loved this book except for one thing it was too short but then all of the Harleuin Nocturne books are way too short Very alpha male werewolf who needs to be taken down a peg or two by the woman he loves and then when he gets the girl he has the nerve to left half of himself want to throw her away when things happen "that are beyond her control which in fact make it so that he could spend the rest "are beyond her control which in fact make it so that he could spend the rest the 200 year lifespan he has left We first met Severo our very alpha male in Michele s The Highwayman and in Moon Kissed he has the nerve to pine away still after the heroine his protege of sorts in that pevious book when he has this lovely young woman who is falling in love with him Men Good thing they are good looking and usually have some redeeming ualities LOL Blurb There s a fine line between fear and desireand between hatred and love Escaping from bloodthirsty vampires Belladonna ran straight into the arms of a werewolf As a man Severo drew her in with his dark good looks as a beast he astounded her with his insatiable sensual appetite Severo tried to eep Bella safe from the vampires who held a malicious desire for revenge against him but he alone wasn t enough Now Bella s taken the form of his most cursed enemy how can he desire the very thing he s spent his life huntingFinished this book in one sitting I liked it because I was interested with Severo during his appearance in Kiss Me Deadly It was a uick read but there was a mini story after this book titled After the Kiss Severo fell head over heels with Belladonna Vampires are considered mortal enemies of werewolves Severo is the pack leader of the wolves and in the end Belladonna accidentally became a vampire and it really tested if Severo loves her even if she is a vampire I recommend this to those who like Escaping from bloodthirsty vampires Belladonna Reynolds ran straight into the arms of a werewolf As a man Severo drew her in with his dark good looks; as a beast he astounded her with his insatiable sensual appetite.
