The past was pain.
The present unclear.
For Tyla Rand, her future couldn’t be bleaker. Death follows her everywhere, especially to those she loves. Being a member of the royal pack, she believes her time of happiness will come. That is, until wolves from her old pack show up missing. Her mission is to find them, but she won’t be going alone.
Sebastian Lyall, a true born royal and the one man Tyla’s been trying to push away, has offered to help in her quest. Their journey not only brings out their true desires, but attracts the attention of another, someone from Tyla’s past. However, nothing is as it seems. Death is not done with her and now he wants her to pay. He won’t be satisfied until he’s taken everything away . . . including those she loves.
Man do I love me paranormal romances and Resisting the Moon is not exception!
In the sequel to Turn of Moon, where we get more incite on Sebastian and Tyla! In this story of the Royal Shifters, we learn more about Tyla and her family and why she isn’t and wasn’t in a relationship in Roped In (Armed & Dangerous, #1), why she such a good horse trainer, and how she really feels about Sebastian, a royal. On the other side we learn more about Sebastian and his demons, more about his family (his brothers).
“I like watching your cheeks blush. It’s sexy as hell.”
Tyla is a fighter and a damned good one; no one messes around with her if they know what is good for her. She’s also all about family and her pack. She has a deep attraction to one wolf in particular, but fights it tooth and nail. She refuses to give in, not only because she knows Sebastian is pretty much a male slut, but because her track record with relationships has left her never wanting to be in one ever again. She believes that death will always find the ones she loves and keeps closest to her heart. She learned that fact a long time ago when her family was on the run.
Sebastian has always been a protector. It’s the life he chose and never regrets. He is one of the reasons that Bailey is alive today and alpha of her pack. However, Sebastian is fighting something dark inside of himself and the only one he knows can cure it is Tyla. He will do whatever he can to make her realize that they should be together.
“She squeezed my hand. “No hurting him,” she warned. “He probably doesn’t see perky breasts at home.” “I don’t give a shit if he’s never touched a boob. If he stares at either one of my girls again, I’ll rip his goddamn eyes out.”
I love the spirit and strength that Tyla has throughout this book! She doesn’t take crap from anyone, she can hold her own and she loves deeply. I think that is why I liked her so much in Roped In because she was just a strong woman and it carries over into her own story. Her back-story completely makes sense to the type of person she is in Resisting the Moon and why on gods name she would refuse Sebastian.
Sebastian has quickly become my new book boyfriend. So freaking protective over those he cares about, especially Tyla! More men in real life should take some notes from him. The sacrifice he has made for those he loves is admirable and swoon worthy. The way he talks and treats Tyla is just so freaking sexy and the fact that he is a werewolf on top of all that is a bonus. He’s a strong willed man, and like Tyla he doesn’t take crap from anything or anyone and he never gives up. He is willing to do what is necessary.
“I don’t watch afer her anymore. I’ve chosen someone else to protect.” Her head jerked my way and I smiled in answer. “No,” she moaned. “That’s right, love. You’re stuck with me for the rest of your life, mated or not.”
I love the back-stories that L.P. comes up with for her characters. I appreciate that she doesn’t make them long and drawn out, but straight to the point and gives you all the information you need at the time of need. Nothing unnecessary. What I didn’t expect was a different point of view at the end of the book. That was a nice surprise and gears you up for what’s to come in the future of the series.
Resisting the Moon is another Dover novel that I have added to as my favorite reads of 2015. Can’t wait for the rest.
“Can I help you?” I asked, turning to face Sebastian Lyall.
His whitish-blond hair was perfectly coifed in messy spikes, his light blue, button down shirt matching the color of his eyes. The last thing I needed was to look into them. He’d had me tongue tied several times in the past and it ended up making me look like an idiot.
Smirking, Sebastian stepped closer, holding out a hand. “Would you care to dance?”
Rolling my eyes, I nodded toward the group of women in the corner who watched his every move. “Why don’t you ask one of your groupies? I’m sure they’d be more than willing.”
He and his brothers, Micah and Zayne, along with Colin, were hot commodities in our pack. They were all royal wolves—the elite. No female could resist them, except me that is. I couldn’t complain though; the royals helped make our pack invincible.
Sebastian leaned closer, his gaze serious. “I asked you, Tyla Rand. Besides, there’s something I need to tell you.”
“Why do we have to dance in order for you to spill? Just say it now.”
Chuckling, he grabbed my hand and pulled me to the dance floor. “What’s the matter, afraid to be close to me? I promise I won’t bite.”
Right. Huffing, I reluctantly walked onto the dance floor just when the tempo changed to a slower, sensual beat. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” I growled. Other couples joined in and held each other, swaying to the music, while I stood there like a fool.
Grabbing my other hand, Sebastian pulled my arms around his shoulders and put his around my waist. “See? Not so bad.”
I glared up at him. “Just keep your hands from wandering. Now what do you want to talk about?” His hands snaked lower and I growled. “Keep it up and see where your hands end up next.”
Chuckling, he lifted them higher. “I like watching your cheeks blush. It’s sexy as hell.”
