Did she save his life only to betray him?
Werewolf detective Knox Marshall makes a near-fatal mistake when he tries to get the goods on a drug lab in isolated Western Maryland. Captured and used as a test subject in a diabolical experiment, he manages to escape. After nurse Maggie Leland finds him naked and wounded in the woods, she patches him up; but she's hardly prepared for the drug flashbacks that spin his mind out of control or the side effects that turn him on. She and Knox get close quickly. He thinks he's found his lifemate--until it looks like Maggie is working with the drug dealers. When he realizes he's wrong, is it, too late to save her life?
Outside her tent, Maggie crouched, shivering in the chill early morning air, listening intently as she gripped her gun and surveyed her surroundings. The stone circle where she'd built her campfire was as she left it. Her cooking pan and utensils were undisturbed. And the backpack she'd worn on her trek from the road was still resting against the nearby tree where she'd propped it.
Nothing seemed out of place--until she saw a pale form sprawled on the ground about thirty yards from her tent. She blinked. It looked like a naked human whose body was partially obscured by dead leaves and underbrush. With the gun in a two-handed grip, she approached cautiously, deliberately stepping on a couple of twigs to make a little noise. The figure didn't stir, and when she reached his side, she saw it was a naked man lying prone. She took in his dark hair, his powerful muscles, the curve of a well-toned ass. He looked to be in top physical shape except that scratches from brambles and twigs marred his skin, and a red circle on his left lower leg oozed blood.
She caught her breath, recognizing a gunshot wound. An entry wound, which meant that he'd been running away when he'd been hit. Someone had clipped him, and she had no idea who or why. Had he fled from the cops? From thugs?

HOLLOW MOON by Rebecca York. This is part of the Decorah Security Series. Having read only one previous book in the series, I found I had no trouble following along, despite this being book #17. Ms. York fills the book with love and sex and danger and suspense too. I enjoyed this paranormal tale and found it easy to read and follow. I liked the characters, even if Knox came across arrogant in the beginning. Maggie is sweet and independent and really just trying to live her life when trouble comes along. I would have liked to have known a bit more about Maggie and her family life (although maybe that is in a previous book) as well as Knox's previous life. It is touched upon, I just would have liked a bit more. Honestly, paranormal is not always my favorite genre, although I found I enjoyed this werewolf tale and look forward to checking out more in this series. (received ARC from NetGalley for honest review)
This is a quick novella that has Knox, a werewolf shifter with Decorah Security, in the woods when he notices an odd smell that he grabs his camera to investigate further. Before long he realizes that he could have made a better choice.... Then he meets Maggie, a woman who stirs him to distraction, but whose role he is uncertain of. This is a sexy quick read that fans of the genre will love. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, however I wish there had been more depth to it to further develop Maggie and Knox's relationship. Put this one on your TBR list. The author is on my must read authors' list.
