Overview

Private investigator Ross Marshall has a special talent for tracking—a talent that has helped him locate missing persons when the police’s trail has gone cold. Now his current case has led him to a body buried in an isolated rural area—and a serial killer who is looking for a new victim. But while gathering evidence for the police, something goes very wrong…
 
The last thing genetic researcher Megan Sheridan expected was to discover her client shot and unconscious. Ross Marshall had requested her lab to run genetic tests on him, but instead of taking a blood sample, Megan found herself tending his wounds. Although frightened by the secrets she knows he is hiding, Megan is compelled to him by a force she can’t explain—or resist. Ross tries to deny the ancient instincts clamoring for him to take Megan as his mate, for to do so would sentence her to a lifetime of sorrow. But now Ross has an even more urgent reason to stay away from Megan: the killer that he’d been hunting has turned the tables—and is now hunting him…

The Barnes & Noble Review
Handsome private investigator Ross Marshall tracks missing young women, a dangerous serial killer, and a forbidden romance in this new thriller with a supernatural touch by New York Times bestselling author Ruth Glick, writing as Rebecca York. Local police detective Jack Thornton has found Ross unusually, often mysteriously, helpful at solving homicide cases gone cold. Ross knows that his talent actually derives from his genes, which is why he asked genetic researcher Megan Sheridan to run tests on him. Instead, by chance, she finds him unconscious, suffering from a bullet wound. As she nurses him to health, their chemistry is immediate and powerful, but Ross knows that to pursue Megan will only put her in danger -- from the serial killer and from the consequences of his own ancient heritage.

Private Investigator Ross Maxwell seeks evidence against human predators in which the cops are stymied. Currently he chases serial killer Donald Arnott. Ross cuts a hole big enough for a dog to fit through in the perimeter fence surrounding the property of his target. Ross shifts shape into a wolf and passes through the breach he created. However, bad luck occurs, as Donald happens to be outside. He shoots Ross, who manages to escape in spite of the wound.

The next day genetic research scientist Megan Sheridan of Bio Gen Labs visits client Ross at his home to do a work up on him. She finds him feverish from his wound so she cleans the wound, provides the antibiotic that he happens to need, and puts on fresh bandages. As he heals Ross worries because he knows Arnott stalks him, the Montgomery County, Maryland police suspect him in a murder investigation, and the CEO of Megan¿s company is acting strange. Still, Ross is angriest with Megan for not fleeing him because wolves mate for life, something he fears after what his dad did to his mom.

Using the premise that lycanthropy is a genetic disorder, KILLING MOON is a delightful supernatural private investigator romance starring two charming lead characters. The plot moves at a rapid pace though Arnott showing restraint seems off kilter. Ross is a wonderful protagonist struggling with his need for his life mate and his fear of the harm he will do to her. Megan is a courageous counterpoint who brings out the best in the beast. Sub-genre fans will relish Rebecca York¿s tale that makes a human species of werewolves.

The story line was good but it was hard to read. Took me awhile to get into the book I almost put it down. I skipped over pages while reading to get to the main people. For free it was a good enough read but I won't pay to read it.

Really enjoyed this book and am into the whole series. Love Ross. He is such a great character. Like how the women are not some wimpy, frail flowers....

I enjoyed this book, and will definitely get another one in the series. It was more fast-paced than I probably would have liked in terms of the timeline, but it held me from page one.

This book was more like 2.5 stars. It was OK, I liked the characters, I liked the plot, but I wouldn't recommend it to someone who asked just because I think there are much better books in this genre. While I like relationship building, the first third dragged a little while the two main characters hemmed and hawed over the same issues/concerns. While I like a happy ending, the resolution was almost a little to perfect even for me. The second book is a spin-off from the cop character Jack Thorton (who is not a Were, so seems a little weird). I debated continuing the series because I liked him as a character, but ultimately I decided the writing style would probably continue to annoy me and there were other books I'd enjoy more... so I'm gonna cut my loses on this one.
