New York, NY -- What do you get when you cross an assassin with a wolf? A good reason to stay indoors on the full moon.
Welcome to a new reality. Shapeshifters live among us. The Sazi are wolves and bears, snakes, raptors and cats. With each full moon, their bodies sprout fur, or scales or even feathers. They are all races, all cultures, but are forced to hide from the human population Â hide in plain sight. If anyone had proof of their existence, they would be captured for testing, or slaughtered en masse.
Tony, a hitman for the Mafia, was brutally attacked during a hit gone wrong. He woke up furry, and now, with every full moon, he changes into a werewolf. Months later, Tony has a bad feeling that the wolf-senses are encroaching on his human life. This is confirmed when he meets a new client, Sue, and feels an immediate attraction to her. But there's a bigger problem - she wants to hire him to kill her. As he's drawn further into her life and her problems, the wolf inside of him clamors to be let out - and he realizes he's not the only one in the Midwest whose life is ruled by the moon ...
But Tony and SueÂs enemies arenÂt only those in the mob and aren't just furry. SueÂs family has their own agenda, and Tony is definitely in the way.
Come explore the complex world of Tony Giodone. Meet Mafia Boss Carmine Leone, and his lovely wife, Linda. Play poker with Joey "the Snake", and run from a rival hit man, as well as the homicide detective who is obsessed with arresting Tony.
Engulf your senses in a supernatural world where emotions are visible in the air like faded watercolors, and the scent of fear makes your stomach growl.

Read what other authors and the critics are saying:
LAURELL K. HAMILTON, NY Times Best selling author, says: "I read the book in one sitting. I look forward to the next book in the series, because it has to be the beginning of a series. A world this enjoyable deserves more than one visit. This book has some new twists in the werewolf's tail that were very cool."
ROUNDTABLE REVIEWS was likewise impressed: "HUNTER'S MOON is a fantastic story that kept me wondering and imagining what was going to happen next. Reading each page I could see in my mind the story unfolding and it was like watching a really good movie, all I needed was soda and popcorn . . . I more than enjoyed this book, it was excellent. It had a brilliant storyline and was extremely well written. I hope that the authors will write more of this type. I know I would definitely queue outside or inside a bookstore to get a copy of this or any like it from these authors. This is a book you won't want to miss out on."
Multi-published, best selling fantasy author TESS MALLORY isn't shy in her praise: "An amazing, cutting edge paranormal adventure . . . I couldn't help but compare the first person, male narrative style to Mickey Spillane. Men will especially enjoy this fast-paced action/adventure paranormal, and women will be enthralled by the incredible, deftly written love-making scenes. I will anxiously await the next installment. Tony's character is just too unique, and too darn SEXY to stop with only one book. This has earned a spot on my keeper shelf!" TESS MALLORY, multi-published fantasy author
And THE ROMANCE STUDIO gave this book a rating of: "4 Hearts, Very Sensual. This book is very good. The paranormal aspect is very well done and I will definitely be recommending this book to other readers. If werewolf stories are your favorite, then you have to pick this one up. Action and adventure are abundant and you won't be disappointed."
