Celtic History Professor, Rhiannon Connelly is on a mission to find her missing friend. When she finds a strange note tucked away in a newspaper that promises answers, she packs her bags and heads off to Scotland. Once there, she encounters a secluded village and a strangely secretive group of people lead by a tall, dark and handsome stranger.
Cameron Tapaire is the Alpha of a secret pack of werewolves. Wary of Rhiannon and unsure of what her connection is to the attacks on his people, he has her brought to his home, but things get complicated when the human turns out to be more than just an innocent visitor.
Locked away with the Benandanti, Rhiannon must learn to accept there is a section of the world she knew nothing about, but the more she learns, the more she understands the clan and its overbearing Alpha while Cameron is faced with the challenges of another Alpha in his home, a human woman who cannot protect herself and the threat that can destroy them all.
Amy M.'s Review
Rhiannon comes off as this extremely capable-strong woman that can take care of herself in any situation. Which I believe is what caught Cameron’s eye in the first place to pull him into her web of strength and sexuality. With a war on the rise Cameron only did what he believed was right and that was to bring the human, asking questions, to his castle.
I couldn’t help but be excited to see what this author had in store for Rhiannon considering she is human and the Benandanti do not allow for human contact except for the human family that keeps their secret from the outside world. This book kept building up to the end for a heart stopping ended that had me overjoyed, sad, and extremely excited to read the epilogue. The push and pull of emotions throughout this book kept me guessing which way Rhiannon would take her journey; would she stay with the Blood Moon clan, go with her friend and his Dark Moon clan, or leave everything and return to her human life never to see any of them again?
I give 5 stars to the hot paranormal read, Beneath the Blood Moon by Amanda Jayde.
