A smoldering debut novel exploring the passion, hunger, and danger that can break loose in the moonlight. From the time she was a child, Mona Lisa knew she was different-but she never knew how different until a man of otherworldly beauty appeared during her night shift in the ER. Gryphon is hurting and hunted and he attracts her as no man ever has before. He is a Monère, one of the children of the moon-and what's more, so is she. Long exiled from the moon, the men of the Monère serve-and mate with-imperious Queens who can channel the rays of their far-off homeland. Gryphon believes that Mona Lisa is a Queen- perhaps the first of Mixed Blood ever known. But her introduction to the nighttime court of the Monère, simmering with intrigue, casual lust, and calculated cruelty, is far from smooth.

What to say about this book...I was really optimistic that it would get better after all so many people rated this book at 4 or even 5 stars. But I should have quit while I was ahead.The plot is actually interesting, the Moniere are aliens who used to live on the moon before it became uninhabitable ...
I absolutely loved this book. It was a new way to sort through the paranormal genre. Fast paced and i was never bored.There was 1 minor slip with a wrong name, but i could live with that.
This book got off on the wrong foot. The H/h meet & the H is injured. He's been stabbed plus poisoned.The h then proceeds to manipulate/guilt him into having sex with her. Yeah .. I'm done.
4.5 stars... Nothing like i have read before. I think this books you either love it or hate it ~ Loved it!! I'm a Amber girl myself :)
It was a good book, and it had some interesting and novel ideas. But also it did borrow a bit from the Merry Gentry series, but it doesn't live up to that standard. Good, but not there.
