Edge of Moonlight
third in the Lucani Lovers series
Etruscan wolf shifter Kaine Giliati has longed for John Simmons since he willingly agreed to wipe all memory of her from his mind. The pain in her heart is only magnified by terror—the ability to call her wolf appears to have deserted her, as well.
For months after he and his sister escaped a crazed kidnapper, John has been dreaming about a beautiful woman he’s never met but who seems so familiar. A woman he’s shocked to find in a dark bar one night. A woman who agrees to come back to his apartment for raw, passionate sex.
One erotic, stolen night reopens old wounds, uncovers buried memories and sets Kaine and John on a path filled with danger, magic and potential heartbreak.

Kaine and John's story...
This story is leaving off right where Moonlight Menage left off...
Nic and Duke's partner, Kaine, was injured while trying to save/protect two eteri's *humans* from the deranged red headed villain. The one thing that she could not protect was her heart. Falling for John was not the wisest or smartest decision she ever made. But can you stop a heart from falling in love??
John was just trying to protect his sister; from what or who he had no idea. He just knew that he needed to protect her. But being caged like an animal and drugged was no help to her. Then a wolf entered the picture and tried to rescue him and his sister. Only the wolf is a woman.. After the ordeal was over, John and his sister insisted to have their memory erased of all that happened with Kaine and her family. No memory was better than the memories ~ or was it?
Kaine is my favorite kinda woman... bad ass: kick ass now, ask questions later kinda of woman. She does not take crap from anyone. Her job requires her to not take it from anyone. She works along side the elite of her clan. A team of assassins; working strictly for their King. So whatever you do, do not piss her off. But this is where my love for her grows, on the other hand, she is simply a woman at heart. She craves love just like the rest of us; her problem is that the love she craves is from someone she should not love. There is a pull about John that she cannot shake. No matter if his has no memory of her, no matter if he has up and left with his sister and never wanted to be found again. She is a born tracker, she could find him easily if she wanted too. But she has orders to stay away. She heeded those orders.
But there is always a straw that broke the camels back... We all have had days like this. Kaine, a born Lucani (wolf) ~ “skin shifter”, could not shift anymore. After the first incident with John, she could not shift. That is like telling her she could not breath. That cut Kaine deep, so deep ~ she had to seek out help. At least that is what her intentions were. Until she learned more screwed up information. Not only could she not love the man she wanted to love, his memory wiped clean of her - by his choice, she could not shift, she also learned that she was not who she thought she was, learned that her mother abandoned her to her father and died not long after that and she discovered that she picked up a new power... You wanna talk about a day from hell.
A drink.. that was what the day called for. Just a drink.. or two.. or three... just enough to allow all this to go away is what Kaine thought. She headed down to the bar to escape for a little while...
John was having the worst days of his life. His sister is scare of her own shadow, they are on the run and he has no clue from who or what, he keeps having these freaking hot ass dreams of this woman who will not escape his mind, he has to get a job that he does not want and his sister is close to having a meltdown from all the weird stuff that is happening to her. Being an ex Navy Seal, you think he could protect her right. I think that pisses him off even more. There is nothing he could do to bring his sister back to life, the life she had before the kidnapping. Day from hell... you think... A drink.. One drink.. and a shot of something strong.
One bar, one drink (okay, maybe two or three), two world collide and nothing good can come of it. One remembers everything, one cannot remember anything... John knows he has seen this woman before; he just knows it in his gut and deep in his soul. He has to know..."Have I met you before?"
Only in Kaine dreams would John remember her. But here he stands - live in the flesh asking her if they have ever met. Should she just blow him off... or.... take what is being offered. One night.. one chance to touch, to kiss, to caress, to be with him... One night and walk away. Sounds easy, right??
This is a very intriguing tale of two people who loves has to really conquer all. Ms. Julian does an awesome job at delivering the most erotic, hot, delicious scenes possible. She is keeping to the root of the story (imo) ~ family. That is the heart of these stories. I mean, each character finding his/her love/mate is the storyline... but family is key here. Their community is very tight knit. And that is one factor that I love about this series. I absolutely love that about Ms. Julian's writing style. They don't just pop in and out of the story... they are weaved in a way that you know they are there for each other ~ through thick and thin.
Okay, my only peeve is I NEED more information on the villan. That is my only problem with this series so far... I want more info on the bad ass woman that keeps kidnapping people. Other than that.. this is another scorcher of a story from Ms. Julia.
I started this story at 10 o'clock Sunday night and finished it at 2 in the morning Monday! Yeah, it is that good... and of course you just have to know what happens... Awesome job Ms. Julian!!! And of course she left us hanging for the next one... And I will bug her till I have that one in my
