In As Midnight Loves the Moon, the reader can’t help but get caught up in their story as their attractions to each other get hot from every page with scorching hot sex scenes, but Wayde has his work cut out for him trying to bring all three of them together. The characters are strong, compelling and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning, and the well-orchestrated suspense draws the reader deeper into the story. The anticipation builds throughout as danger comes from not only the rogue vampire, but a scorned ex as well. There is never a dull moment in this fast paced romance. The author keeps readers on their toes with a few surprising twists as well. A vampire, Wayde Wallace, has been alone a long time and now he’s found not one, but two mates. Only problem is Alexander Malden is a shade cop who believes Wayde has gone rogue and Daphne Sabella is a dying human in this mesmerizing erotic paranormal romance. Daphne knows her time is running out but she’s determined to live each day as they come to the
Wayde Wallace is a vampire. He’s been alone for a long time, until he smells the sunshine scent of a woman and finds Daphne Sabella. Her blood smells intoxicating until he catches the stench of sickness upon her and realizes Daphne is dying.
Alexander Malden is a Shade cop sent to patrol the supernaturals who live among humans. A rogue vampire is killing women and he thinks Wayde is the monster because only a trickster can make him feel such lust and longing.
To prove his innocence, Wayde goes out to find the real rogue vampire and Alex can’t help but follow because the mating bond has already settled between them. And when they believe they can finally help Daphne, she becomes the next victim. Now they must rescue her and turn her before she succumbs to death.

Wayde looked behind Alex and noticed their conversation had gathered a few watchers. His gaze flickered back up to the handsome cop. “I suggest you sit down,” he said softly. “We’re attracting human notice.”
Alex glanced over his shoulder, probably to double check he told the truth, and slid into the booth, staring at him and carefully keeping out of his reach. “You think by distracting me in a bar, I won’t kill you?”
“You’re so bloodthirsty. Again, I ask you, why do you want to kill me? I’m not your rogue vampire.”
Alex’s eyebrows skyrocketed. “Right.”
“I’m not,” he stressed. “I’m a bookstore owner. I deal in extremely rare books, usually pre-Gutenberg printing press, although I never turn down a book in excellent condition from around 1040 to the mid-1800’s. Beer?”
“No,” Alex answered with a low growl. “Listen, you tried to kill me yesterday—”
“You attacked me,” Wayde interrupted. He pushed his beer aside and kept his eyes steady on the warrior in front of him. “And if I wanted you dead, you’d be dead. As you learned last night, I am able to hold my own.”
“I’ve come better prepared.” Alex opened his jacket a little more to show his gun.
“Ah. Your master plan is to take me out back and shoot me?”
“Of course. Your suggestion, remember?”
“Of all the things I said last night, that’s what stood out?” Wayde chuckled. “Listen, I have your sword at my shop. You can stop by anytime to pick it up.”
“I don’t actually plan for you to be alive for much longer.”
“Then I beg to differ,” he replied. “Have you ever killed a vampire before?”
He saw the answer before Alex muttered “no.”
He shifted forward in his seat, leaning toward Alex, who stiffened at the gesture. Then he focused on Alex, blocking out everything around them. The noise, the smell, the crackle of vinyl seats all faded as he called forth his hunger. It rose sharply, like it always did, waiting eagerly to be sated. It was heat and power and magic, all rolled together, bursting forth like an invisible web. And as soon as he captured Alex’s eyes with his own, he knew he had the man.
“I want you,” he murmured, weaving his spell. He knew that his voice took on a husky timber, that his eyes blazed with blue fire, and that his pheromones heated up. “Do you want me too, Alex?”
Wayde is the driving force in which this story revolves. His vampire senses awaken with Daphne, but when Alex steps on the scene they are blown wide open. There are so many elements being touched on here that you are instantly drawn in. I only wish the story delved deeper and more thoroughly into each of the characters, because they are all so wonderfully enticing.
Beth D. Carter is one of my favorite authors. This book was different from many of her books, but I loved it. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this story. Sometimes bisexual couplings don’t have the same kind of depth that a straight or gay couple have and when it’s a ménage things can get messy, but this story found the perfect balance. The heat was just right and the story was fun, fresh, and full of excitement. I would recommend this book. The writing was wonderful.
