Renee's life had been normal until the shadows reappeared and the legendary stone was sent to her. As the arrival drags her further into the paranormal world, the last thing Renee expects is to be swept off her feet by a brooding werewolf.
Yet Coran captures her heart and attention. Small problem-he doesn't want a mate. Coran still suffers from the loss of his first mate, but when Renee is attacked by shifters he is forced to protect her at all costs. Things heat up when he realizes fate has wickedly granted him a second chance at love. With the war causing the body count to rise, now is not the ideal time to find a mate.
The Circle is becoming desperate and something has Lucius worried which means trouble for his followers. It's a dance between danger and fate in this second installment of the Dark War Chronicles.

Renee has a new trinket - a little stone that mysteriously arrived in the mail. Now she is the most interesting human in the city to quite a few paranormal types. When Coran is charged with getting the stone back a lot of things are set in motion. Renee is quickly dragged into the world of Lucius via the werewolf Coran. Coran is fiercely protective of Renee and I really loved watching the two of them together. She had just the right level of maiden in distress with modern woman who won't take crap. The overall storyline really moved forward and we get to see a bit more of what the bad guys are all about. It's not good (or course). We also get to see some of the crew from the first book, but I wish the panthers had made more of an appearance. I got attached to them. We also get to see Lucius being a total dick to everyone - but he does it for the right reasons. Very confusing - but read and you will totally get it. Renee had a few surprises for me, and we meet a third group that has an agenda that I'm not entirely sure of yet. I only want to read more because I can really feel the tension and stress surrounding the stone and the plans that The Circle is hatching.
This is the second book in the DWC Series and it picks up where the first book left off. Now that we have the basis for the story, the author is able to go into more details as to why there is a battle coming and goes into more depth of the hierarchy within the vampire territory. This is really interesting because it is about many different surpernaturals working together. Book 2 focuses on the relationship between Coran and Renee (an immortal and a human with special abilities). Renee is newly introduced into this book and it is wonderfully written how Coran and Renee meet. Even though the focus was on their relationship, we see the depth of the story unfold and learn more about why vampires would be battling one another. There are a couple of other characters briefly introduced in this book. We learn a little about them but know there is something bigger coming with these. In addition to the details coming together for the battle and the romance side, there is a lot of action and suspense
The last thing werewolf, Coran Hemming, wants is another mate. Especially one that is human, but when Renee Flemmons walks into the bar he works at, after being attacked by shifters, he finds himself becoming protective of the mortal. I enjoyed Renee. There is more to her then meets the eye. She handles herself well despite being hunted by supernatural beings she just discovered existed. She has no idea why they are interested in her and her true value. Coran is a formidable hero. He is immortal. He has suffered much loss and is hard on himself. He is loyal and a fierce friend. Renee is a nice complement for him. I enjoyed the dynamics of the characters. There is an interesting hierarchy among the various groups. Dance in the Moonlight has a great plot, with tons of action. I got through the book in a day because I could not put it down. I am intrigued to see what happens next in the series.
I am giving this review for author A.L. Kessler. This is book 2 of the Dark War Chronicles book series by the author. Renee is being hunted but unknown people because they think she has something they want from her. Little does she know what that something truly is and how it can destroy things around it. Coran is a werewolf and has lived his life in a dark place since his mate was killed and now Renee threatens to push him even farther down that dark path. This is another hit by the author and I can't say anything bad about the story at all. Each book keeps getting better as the plot thickens. This is a must for any paranormal romance reader who likes a little darkness to their read.
