Hi, I'm Stephanie Julian. I write the Lucani Lovers, Magical Seduction and The Fringe series for Ellora's Cave and the upcoming Forgotten Goddesses series for Sourcebooks.
My latest release is MOONLIGHT TEMPTATION and this book is the perfect example of why I love to write series: You get to visit with old friends again.
If you read my stories, you'll notice my characters tend to pop up in multiple books. That's because I love to check in with them, see what they're up to and just generally say hi. Some show up more than others. I happen to love Kyle and Cam just a little more than all my other heroes. And Cat has a pivotal role to play in the Etruscans' ongoing fate. Besides, she's just a sweetheart.
In MOONLIGHT TEMPTATION, you get to see Kyle, Tam and Cat from KISS OF MOONLIGHT, John from EDGE OF MOONLIGHT, and Cam from SEDUCED & ENSNARED. Say hi to a few old friends.
Cat groaned. “You’ve got that look on your face again.”
Evie blinked and consciously cleared her expression. But she knew it was too late. “What look?”
“That ‘How much can Cat handle look?’” The girl huffed and narrowed her gaze at Evie. “You do know I’m seventeen years old and I wasn’t raised in a nunnery, right?”
“I know, Cat. I’m sorry, it’s just this thing with Dane and Ryan has me all…” She shook her hands in front of her. “I don’t know.”
“Well, I know you’ve always had a thing for Dane. And now you’re attracted to Ryan and that confuses you. I get it. But you know it doesn’t have to be an either-or deal, right? It’s not like Ryan and Dane haven’t shared the same girl before.”
Evie’s mouth dropped open but she couldn’t produce a word. Her brain ground to a halt.
Cat’s eyes widened. “Oh. You didn’t know. Oh, shit, my bad.”
Cam de Feo shrugged it off then held out his hand…for the pretty blonde woman who materialized at his side.
Ryan had seen some freaky shit in his life. Hell, he watched Dane turn into a wolf. But when a man built like a linebacker who had pointed ears too unusual to be simply abnormal materialized out of thin air, that made him question his sanity.
Cam didn’t stop for introductions. Apparently none were needed. “Stella and I already checked out the building. We’ve got to go now. They’re getting ready to move.”
“You saw Evie?” John asked. “And Cat and the boy?”
Cam shook his head. “No, but they’re in there. We heard the men talk about moving cargo so they’re still here. We found an empty room to stage but we’ve got to go now. We can’t wait.”
John nodded. “Then let’s do it.”
Cam nodded then bent to kiss his wife. And this was nopeck on the cheek, goodbye kiss. This was a full-out passionate embrace that no one seemed to think was inappropriate for the situation.
When he finally released her, she smiled and Ryan swore he saw heat flare between them, even in the frosty chill of the air.
Then Cam grabbed Seth by the arm and laid a hand on Dane’s neck.
And they were gone.
