Be Still My Werewolf Heart – Diamond Moon by Celia Breslin @CeliaBreslin
Diamond Moon (Black Hills Wolves Book 12) - Celia Breslin

I haven’t read any Young Adult for a while, so when I was offered a copy of Diamond Moon by Celia Breslin I jumped on it. This may be the 12th book in the series, but I didn’t have any trouble beginning out of order. That being said, I loved it enough to recommend beginning at the beginning so you don’t miss any of the good stuff.


Cover by Fiona Jayde


Publisher: Decadent Publishing Company


Diamond Moon (Black Hills Wolves, #12)

Amazon / Audio / Goodreads




It’s been a while since I have read any Young Adult Werewolf stories, and I was ready for this sweet little novella, Diamond Moon by Celia Breslin.


Darci’s parents had died and all she had left was a map leading to a mystery town. She is half human and half werewolf. Her desire is to be all human, so hopefully whoever is in the mystery town can help her to quit shifting. Last time her heart stopped. How long before it kills her?


Thus, the adventure begins.


She’s going solo. She is creeped out by the forest, which usually brings her comfort and puts her at ease. Maybe that is a sign. Is someone or something out there?


We meet Ross. He is all wolfy male, wanting to escape the city and find more meaning for his life. He walks away from his computer job to build houses, though he still keeps his hand in technology.


Okay, I think we all know where this is going, but I am having a great time getting there.


I quickly fell in love with Mister Sun God Sexy. I love his Big Bad Wolf attitude and his pet attack cat.


A lot is packed into this short story and I loved it.


I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Diamond Moon by Celia Breslin.

Haven by Celia Breslin
Haven - Celia Breslin

I received this Arc at no cost to me for a honest review.


Treat yourself to this sexy page-turner with a tough heroine, snarky humorous, sensuality and family drama.

I thoroughly enjoyed HAVEN. I’m more of a romance reader than urban fantasy, and the connection between Alexander and Rina captivated me, while family mysteries and great world building kept me enthralled. I guess you could say I am in the target audience that the author was looking for! 


Carina who owns a nightclub with amazing and loyal friends. The only thing odd about her is the lapse in memory from when she was younger and to make things even more weird she is attacked by a crazed witch.  Uh oh!!

Rina is a fun party girl and her sassy, and not exactly snarky, voice is strong—you experience this story powerfully through her eyes, from deep within her point of view. I am hoping for a good reason that Rina never gets to see her father in this book since he is still in Italy. There was no better way to protect her than stripping her of all her memories? Especially when these are the highest level in the vampire society and they can't handle her protection?

The story kept you interested but all the characters have a history and secrets in their past. Yet when you did find out about the history your left without answers to explain or elaborate more. I felt a bit flustered from this but I was able to still highly enjoy this book. Told in the first person, this also for me, runs the risk of, "See how clever and feisty I am?" but I never got annoyed with Rina's narration.


Each turn of the page was juicy and had me rereading it to make sure nothing was missed. You should pick this one up!

Great Story and Characters
Haven - Celia Breslin

Carina/Rina was working on trying to sweat out her headache from her birthday celebration that had started the night before and ended with drinking too much with her friends/roommates/bodyguards ren and mark. Rina then came up against an inept witch that tried to attack her and Rina knocked her out. That was a nasty way to start her birthday as far as Rina is concerned. Then rina mentioned to her friends they would make it up tonight when they went out dancing. Then Mark reminded her that she had the opening of the Italian Ward Tranquilla collection- which was her last name- at the art museum. W- T for short. Faith was rina best friend and resident psychic. Faith told rina she had a surprise waiting for her at the W-T. Rina said that wouldn’t be true as her bossy brother Lorenzo would be there. But faith said the surprise was special. And important and he would change everything. Then faith saw the witch Rina had knocked out and said the witch’s aura was all wrong that she was afraid of rina even though she had attacked rina and there were cracks in the door and the darkness consumes. It hates. It’s unforgiving and it’s watching her. Then Faith swooned and her boyfriend Kai hurried down and caught her before she hit the floor. After a few minutes faith said she wasn’t sure what that was all about but they needed to stay vigilant. Rina suggested maybe they should all stay home but faith said no Rina had to go. Destiny wa sin play and had many moving parts that started at the W-T. Faith could not remember her pre teen years about twelve years total. After Rina got to Haven Lorenzo came up and told Rina they needed to talk about a family matter - it was about the past and her faulty memory. She did know Lorenzo shipped her off to boarding school after their parents death.  Lorenzo then added there was someone she needed to meet. Lorenzo went to leave and Rina told him why she had been late and Lorenzo pulled Rina into a hug. He said they would talk after her other two brothers Dom and Tony got there.they would talk about the past and where they go from there. As for the attack it was a random and that Rina was a target for some very bad people but he added it would be alright. Lorenzo was fifteen and rina was five when Lorenzo stepped up and played the surrogate parent when theirs had died. Rina didn’t know how Lorenzo reacted in their childhood as that was just a big black hole. Then Rina seen Adrien her friend and Haven’s business partner with her and sometime bed partner. Haven was their club and one of the top five dance spots in San Francisco. Rina felt power thrown to her then everyone else was basically frozen around her except the man and one she felt called her danger sirens. Then Lorenzo introduced rina to Thomas Ward. Rina told Thomas to take his hex off her friends that they were done there. Thomas said this was the beginning or actually the exciting middle . he asked Rina if she wanted to see how it all began. Thomas then tells Rina he is her uncle. And a vampire and he had blocked her memory and power. The bad boy Rina felt compelled to was the one and named Alexander. He was the one true soulmate for Rina. Alexander/Alec was a new vampire as vampires went - a youngling. As rina remembers Thomas and others from her past she finds out they are all from a vampire family who had left her and taken her memory for Rina’s own safety. Rina also learns the man she thought was her other uncle was actually her biological father and she was a hybrid vampire princess and Alec has a very important part to play in Rina’s life.

I absolutely loved this book. This had a lot of action and twists and turns that i loved. The chemistry was hot between Alec and Rina before they even met but was off the charts after meeting. I liked how Rina interacted with her friends and how Adrien was still there for her any way that he can  after she only had eyes for Alec sexually. I loved her brooding uncle Jonas who still managed to show her how much he loved her. I loved the plot and pace. I didn’t want to put this book down as I wanted to see what was going to happen next. I enjoyed watching Rina have to let go of some of the control that was such a large part of her. This kept my attention from beginning to end. I could not find anything to criticize as far as I am concerned and i loved that. I loved the characters and the twists and turns and I highly recommend.

Jasmine Moon (Black Hills Wolves #49) by Celia Breslin
Jasmine Moon (Black Hills Wolves #49) - Celia Breslin

Celia Breslin’s JASMINE MOON is an excellent addition to the Black Hills Wolves Series.  I really enjoy this series and love that different authors contribute to it.  This is the first of Celia Breslin’s Black Hills Wolves books that I have read.  I am definitely interested in going back and reading her other two books in the series about the main character’s siblings in DIAMOND MOON (Black Hills Wolves, #12) and UNDER A MATING MOON (Black Hills Wolves #27) after reading this book. 


In JASMINE MOON, Tech mogal, Evan Luparell, agrees to pick up his sister’s best friend Clothing Designer, Jasmine (Mina) Carver, on the way to his brother’s wedding in Los Lobos, South Dakota.  The last thing either of the two workaholics wants is to discover their mate.  This contemporary shapeshipfter PNR is suitable for adult audiences. 


I love the chemistry between Evan and Mina.  They get off to the wrong start.  They constantly bicker.  Their conversations are very amusing; not to mention the discussions between them and their wolves. The two are both very driven and focused on their careers.  Mina has a little better work-life balance than Evan.  Both are good for each other. 


I enjoyed the plot.  I liked the tie in from the previous books with Michael and his father.   I enjoyed the bets that were made throughout the book.  The story had a great ending.  At 108-pages JASMINE MOON is a fast read.  It was exciting from start to finish.  I read it in a day. 


Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

~ 4 Diamond Moon Stars ~ 


Diamond Moon is book twelve in the Black Hills Wolvesseries by Celia Breslin and can be read as a stand-a-lone. 


CBreslin did a great job with the writing. I have read only one other book in this series and it feel below pair for me, but Diamond Moon surprised me with the story and writing. 


Darci our human-wolf hybrid has a big problem that could end with her life. She comes to the Black Hills seeking help and ends up finding more then she expected. 


Ross our full-blooded wolf never expected to find his mate when he came back to the Tao pack to help them rebuild. He has to find a way to save her and help her accept the wolf inside.


Though the plot is not complicated their is a little conflict. Darci is not her father, but because of who he was and the type of wolf, it causes fear in the pack and others to see her differently. As for her little problem well I was impressed with the description of this issue and a little turned off (you will have to read to find out), but mostly impressed on how the author portrayed this. Ross really moved me with his understand. He held back his wolf, since he understood that Darci does not understand or know that they are mates. He helps her feel comfortable and when it’s time to save her, he follows his instincts. The relationship builds nicely for a short story.


All around Diamond Moon was a good read and I enjoyed CBreslin’s writing style. If you enjoy quick insta-love reads, then this book is for you.

He reached out with his Wolf senses. The feedback froze his fingers on the doorknob. Female. Damn, she smelled good. Human. Wolf. Wait…both? The copper tang of blood hit his nose. And injured.

He flung open the door. His abrupt move caught his visitor off guard, one small, white fist raised to knock. The woman startled and fell forward. Catching her, he pulled her inside, kicking the door shut with his foot.

She sagged against him, a shivering bundle of wet woman. Underneath the dampness, her scent drop-kicked his gut. Apples and cinnamon. Roses and honey. His body perked up, taking extreme notice. He fought the growl of possession threatening to tear out of his throat. Holy hell, had his potential mate just walked into his home in the middle of a storm?

The scent of her blood jump-started his brain into action. He lowered her gently to the floor. “Jesus. You okay?”

His instincts urged him to check her for wounds, but he was a stranger and didn’t want to spook her. But goddamn, he wanted to touch her. Peel off her wet clothes. See all of her. With a jacket covering her torso, tight jeans hiding her legs, and her ball cap pulled low on her face, all he’d seen so far was her quivering pale chin, full red lips, and those delicate, trembling hands.

“S-s-sorry, d-dripping all ov-v-ver your f-f-floor,” she said, teeth chattering. Her snow white fingers curled on the hardwood, arms trembling with her effort to keep herself upright. Blood streaked the wood. A line of liquid crimson slid down her jaw and dripped from her chin onto her jacket.

To hell with propriety. “You’re injured. Let me help you.” He pulled off her cap and damn near swallowed his tongue.

Big green eyes blinked up at him from a face so pale it made him think of moonlight. Drenched, short black hair lay plastered to her head, the ends framing features reminiscent of the fairies his sister loved to draw for the hidden-object games she designed. Ethereal beauty. My beauty. He stroked a knuckle down her cheek then ran his thumb over her soft, full lower lip.

She flinched and batted his hand away, falling to her side in the process.

Ross snapped back to reality with a healthy hit of guilt. “Shit. Sorry.”

His gaze shot to her forehead where a two-inch cut sent blood trailing over her prominent cheekbone with its silky-smooth skin he’d so enjoyed caressing—

Shit. He gave himself a mental ass kicking for scaring her. “I’m Ross. You’re safe here. Promise.”
