Detective Morgan Carbone has finally caught the psycho serial killer suspected of slaughtering many young girls, but during the interrogation session, this suspect is about to reveal much more about himself than Morgan bargained for. After shifting into a werewolf the predator escapes, but not before biting Morgan, infecting her with the werewolf virus.

As a newly turned werewolf, Morgan develops an infatuation towards her newfound abilities. However, when the unquenchable blood lust emerges, her sense of guilt is overridden by her primal desire. After withdrawing from her way of life, Morgan spent months in the forest hunting as a feral beast, until she was apprehended by Mario and his pack of commando werewolves.

Mario wants Morgan to infiltrate Castle Cachtice to assassinate the Countess Elizabeth Bathory, a century old barbaric vampire who murdered his twin sister. If Morgan refuses to do this, Mario will kill her by detonating the chip he placed in her head. The only reason Morgan agrees to this task is because of the resemblance between the Countess and Morgan’s first female love, Sophia. Will Morgan find out what happened to Sophia and maybe rekindle the old flame she once had without being blown apart by a revengeful brother?

Under the Moonlight is an intensely sadistic and oppressively seductive story that will pull the reader into the midst of sorrow and later, lifting their spirits making them hopeful and optimistic about the end. The sense of despair and desolation exuding from Morgan is deeply heartfelt and the sexual attraction between Morgan and Elizabeth is emotionally overpowering. Isabelle Rose has entered into a very dark and dismal place in order to weave a tale about the woes of existing as a vicious werewolf and a barbaric vampire who are both suffering with their own horrible blood lust. This story is not for the faint-hearted, but for those who wish to relish in a scene of carnage with a side of erotica. The characters and background development is vividly portrayed and the plot was on track through the entire story. Isabelle Rose has created a uniquely interesting and entertaining tale. I recommend this e-book to readers who are captivated with Paranormal Romance, Shape Shifters, Vampires and Erotica genres.
