Alan Shifflett left Florida's Moonlight pack due to an inherited mutation that makes him a violent freak. He lives a dull life farther north, suppressing his shifts, but when his father can no longer run Moonlight Diner due to failing health, Alan is compelled to return and face his weakness.
Shelley Fields, once a spoiled high school beauty queen, has dedicated her life to helping her pack. In public, she ridiculed Alan because of peer pressure, but secretly, she longed for her mate. When he returns, she confesses her true feelings, but Alan has no intention of staying where he doesn't belong.
Meanwhile, Curtis--his rival--has a score to settle, and threats from a rival pack are standing everyone's fur on end. Terrified of the beast inside, Alan is desperate to return to his safe life, but is leaving his mate, kin, and pack in danger worth the price?

Afton Locke's "Hidden Moon" is the fourth tale in the Hot Moon Rising series, but you can read it as a standalone, I did. The sexy bits are hot! I like how the orange theme runs through the entire book. The mythology of the mates and the pack is an interesting one. There's a larger plot at work and I think I would enjoy going back and reading the first three tales in the series. I will definitely check out more by this author!
