A unique BDSM novel with an interesting blend of romance and the supernatural, Carnal Moon: The Club Moon Series by Hall Jones introduces readers to a powerful love story between a human and a vampire. Nick Santos is a vampire and a Dom at Club Moon. The club is a place that thrives on fetish experiences for humans and vampires and this place offers the perfect escape for Nick. Gwen Waters, the girl with chestnut eyes, has finally found freedom from an abusive husband and can now explore one of her greatest fantasies — bondage. But can she trust the vampire Dom to lead her safely to the heights of pleasure? Unknown to her, the ride will turn out to be far more interesting that anything she’s ever fantasized about.
I was captivated by Hall Jones’ sense of bringing color and life into the narrative with descriptions that create vivid images of the setting and the characters. The story is emotionally strong and this aspect comes out right from the first pages of the narrative. The author knows how to create a striking balance in the story, mixing timely dialogues with interesting descriptions to feed the interests of readers. The writing is gorgeous and it feels sweet, the scenes are well-written, and the POV is done to perfection. The author has the gift of blending details without losing the focus of the direction of the story. This is a story to read with the heart, thanks to its emotional depth. Great characters, a gripping plot, and excellent prose.
