Synopsis (Goodreads):
Shadow of the Moon by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Angelia has fought her entire life to make herself strong. Now, with her patria under fire, she has to protect her people from Fury and his werewolf clan. Vowing to bring him to justice, Angelia sets out alone… until the hunter becomes the hunted, and the only way for her to survive is to trust the very wolf she's sworn to kill.

The Story of Son by J.R. Ward
Claire Stroughton is a beautiful lawyer who would rather spend the night with a legal brief than the man of her dreams. Then a routine client meeting turns dangerous—and deeply sensual—when she is held captive by a gorgeous man with an unworldly hunger…

Beyond the Night by Susan Squires
When Drew Carlowe returns home to win back a lost love, he is quick to dismiss rumors that his estate is haunted by a stunning young ghost…until one passionate encounter leaves him mystified—and aching for more.

Midnight Kiss Goodbye by Dianna Love
Trey McCree possesses an insatiable desire for Sasha Armand—and supernatural powers that could endanger her life as a human. But when they team up to stop an evil warlord, Trey discovers that Sasha can do way more than drive men wild…
Thoughts on Dead After Dark: I picked up this book when I realized it had both a Were-Hunter and BDB story in it. *makes grabby hands*

Shadow of the Moon (Were-Hunter #4.5) - Aww.... Fury. He's one of those guys so relentlessly abrasive that you can't help but like him. And I do. Between his awful childhood and the way he was treated when it was revealed he was a wolf, it's no wonder he does everything he can to push people away. Including his family. While I understand that Angelia was misled and kept in the dark as to what the Katagaria are capable of, she's darn lucky Fury has a thing for her and was able to forgive her. I loved seeing Vane and Fang and the Peltier clan again. *thumbs up*

The Story of Son (Black Dagger Brotherhood #6.6) - OMG. This is the type of story I've come to adore from J.R. Ward. It's painful and beautiful and I would LOVE to see more of Michael and Claire. I honestly adored this one. It's all the violent awesomeness of the BDB without the Lessers. *thumbs up*

Beyond the Night (Companion #6.5) - I really liked this one. I haven't read anything in this series previously but I had no problem jumping in and figuring out what was what. Freya and Drew were interesting together, although it was Freya's plight that intrigued me more. That she was willing to cast off her persona as a ghost to save Drew got me. Not to mention, as a woman in that time, she didn't have a lot of options. She did what she had to do to give herself time to heal. *thumbs up*

Midnight Kiss Goodbye (Belador) - I really didn't know what I was reading for most of this one. It seems like there's some interesting world building but I never quite fell into the characters' heads. This one might have been better off having some familiarity with the world and issues.
