Review: Moonlight Warrior by Janet Chapman

Eve Anderson is darned tired of Kenzie Gregor meddling in her business. She might be struggling to keep herself and her ailing mother financially afloat, but she's no princess in need of a strong, capable knight in a black SUV to rescue her -- even if he is easy on the eyes. Besides, there's something very odd about him...and she's sure the strange events occurring in their small coastal Maine town are linked to his recent arrival.

Once an immortal warrior cursed to live as a panther, Kenzie is finally free to live and die as a man, and his destiny is to help other displaced souls. Of course, if he can get tiny, blue-eyed, curly blond Eve out of the deal, doesn't get any better. But she's as stubborn and fierce as a lioness, and in order to win her love, he must tempt her with forbidden desires.... description taken from here.


I had reviewed this book in the past and I said that I did not like it.  As I mentioned in the review of the 2nd book in this series though, I go through spurts in books.  For a couple of weeks all I want to read is Historicals, then for a couple of weeks I am infatuated with Paranormals and so on.  When I read this book in the past, I had to have been in one of those spurts (that's not Paranormal) because I absolutely loved the 2nd book this series (Midnight Bay Trilogy).  You can read my review here of the second book, Dragon Warrior.

So, if you have already read my review of Dragon Warrior, then you would know that I had planned on re-reading and re-reviewing Moonlight Warrior.  (Which I just loved!)

The characters in Moonlight Warrior were also in Dragon Warrior, so I already liked the characters.  However, when reading their book, I couldn't help but love them more.  They were excellent!  So well written, the plot was great, AND it actually helped explain to me some of the beginning of Dragon Warrior.  The minor characters throughout Moonlight Warrior made the book all the more funny and adorable. 

I loved Kenzie and he was clueless when it came t sarcasm.  It was endearing.  Eve was a great female lead.  She had just got a divorce from her husband and was not about to fall for a man so soon.  However, while she was not about to commit, she did not fight overly hard (You know how sometimes you just want to reach into a book and slap some sense into the female character?  Well that was not needed in this case thankfully!)

To make it short and sweet:  This was a wonderful book and if you like Scottish accents, hot men, or paranormal romances, (or all of the above) then you should get this book, because you will love it as much as I did.

Until Next Time,
Happy Reading!
