Description

Homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is used to investigating grisly killings and going after the mob. She's not used to working alongside New Orleans' preternatural mob enforcer to keep the city from erupting in violence and shedefinitelyisn't used to falling for a mob boss's sexy, shadowy right-hand man. The dark rumours that swirl about Max Savoie are frightening, but he's a contradiction with his unblinking stare and sly smile, Armani suits and red Converese tennis shoes. There's something endearing about him, something naive and...familiar. One night when Cee-Cee is attacked in a dark alley and Max steps in to rescue her, she realizes he saved her life years ago as a teen. Max is everything Cee Cee should steer clear of. He's hiding a dangerous secret and some unknown link to her past. But he's the perfect stepping stone in her crusade to bring down New Orleans' mob boss. If only she could get over her annoying aversion to using Max, and could stop falling in love with him - or at least use that love to her advantage...show more

Our customer reviews

I must admit a fondness for stories of revenge and redemption. Masked by Moonlight gives us a strong woman detective in "Cee Cee" Caissie - she's bi-racial, gorgeous, tough, and sexy. Cee Cee's enjoys her wearing the white hat - she's always had a strong sense of justice and enjoys the firepower to back up her beliefs. When an unguarded moment leads her to danger, she welcomes the help of the gorgeous and deadly Max Savoie. Max Savoie is a big unknown. Though he serves as the muscle behind the largest crime boss in the area, there are no records of Max's past. Everything points to a difficult childhood and a struggle to get where he is today. When it becomes clear that Max and his family were always part of the undocumented class, Cee Cee develops some sympathy for Max's position. The attraction and unconventional courtship between Max and Cee Cee is a strong subplot in the novel. The greater mystery of Max and Cee Cee's shared past moves the action forward and gives Masked by Moonlight a captivating storyline. As I learned more about Max's unique problem and his struggle towards normal, I found myself on Max's side and thoroughly enjoying the mafia aspects and intrigues of the novel. If you're looking for a fun, romantic thriller with some unconventional (read: paranormal) twists, I recommend Masked by Moonlight. I can't wait to read what happens in the subsequent novels -- I certainly want to know what happens next with Max Savoie and Cee Cee Caissie.
