About the book:

The masks are coming off.

Daniel Light loved Zoe Blackwood when he was a gangly dork. Now a powerful wizard prince, a masked ball gives him a new chance to woo her.

Wolf shifter Zoe, desperate to recreate the feelings of romantic love she had in high school, throws the ball as her last chance at romance before her wolf forces her to mate. That romantic memory was courtesy of rich, classy, dorky Daniel, the only boy she could always count on yet never really noticed. When he shows up at the ball, he’s still rich and classy, but not dorky at all, and she notices his lion’s prowl and deadly grace plenty. The question is—can she still count on him?

Coming between them is an evil fire wizard and an ancient parchment with a deadly prophecy.

Warning: A wolf shifter on the cusp of mate-or-else, a smokin’ hot wizard who won’t let anything stand in his way, and fun in closets.

Masked Attraction by Mary Hughes is the first book of the Pull Of The Moon paranormal fantasy romance series. This first book of the series features Daniel Light and  Zoe Blackwood. Daniel is a wizard and Zoe a shifter and of course that means they shouldn’t be together but since when does love listen to laws?

Zoe is at the stage in her life that she needs to find her mate or her wolf will choose for her and Zoe only wants to find love. Zoe decides to throw a masked ball with the idea that the men will need to romance the women but no one is to know that Zoe is the Queen of Hearts and whoever wins her heart also take the prize of an ancient parchment.

Daniel has come to win the prize of the parchment when he’s told that the prophecy it holds could be the end to magic. When he sees Zoe however all he can think of is the high school crush he had on her back when he was a scrawny dorky kid that she would never look twice at. Now Daniel feels that he could finally win Zoe over but just as the two connect the parchment is in danger and Zoe needs Danial to help save it.

Masked Attraction was a fairly quick read that had a lot going on within it so it would fall into the category of me thinking it could have used more depth to really make the story stand out. With witches, wizards and magic involved right beside shifters and an ancient prophecy it had a good start to something but I think the romance or should I say the erotic side seemed to take over quite often. It all ended up feeling a bit surface level going by at a fast pace and it seems that the other books will be with other couples but maybe they’ll give more into the world within the series. For now this one is at 3 stars for me as it was OK but I would have liked a bit more.

About the author:

I write steamy paranormal romances and wickedly fun romantic adventures, stories that crackle with action and love. Challenging, smart alpha men–and women not afraid of a challenge. Oh, do the sparks fly when he meets THE woman guaranteed to infuriate and inflame him most.


In real life I’m an author, a spouse and mother, a flutist, a computer geek, and a binge-TV-watcher of The Flash, Elementary, NCIS, and Wynonna Earp. I’d love to hear from you!
