Lake Bluff, Georgia, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, was once Claire Kennedy’s home.  But she left for the bright lights of Atlanta right out of high school.  Now she’s back, a little older, hopefully a lot wiser, and determined not to let anyone ever hurt her again.  Despite misgivings, she agrees to fulfill her father’s term as mayor of Lake Bluff after his death.  One of her first duties is to oversee the town’s yearly Full Moon Festival and it isn’t as easy as it looks.


A band of Gypsies arrives to entertain at the festival, driving wagons as old and colorful as their ancestors, filled with animals both exotic and dangerous. Their leader, Malachi Cartwright is not only attractive but secretive and mysterious, as are the rest of his people. They all appear to have walked out of a bygone century. They still believe that to love anyone not a Gypsy is forbidden.

 

Malachi awakens a strong attraction in the usually sensible Claire. Her last relationship ended in a cruel betrayal that sent her running home, swearing off men forever.  But this man may change her mind.

 

Then all hell breaks loose. Wolf howls are heard in mountains that have been wolf-free for a century.  A tourist is mauled, then disappears. Magical runes marked with Nazi symbols are found at the scenes of further attacks. As an eclipse approaches, enemies are everywhere. Will Malachi, who Claire fears she is coming to love, help or hurt her.  When the hidden moon arrives, what deadly foe will be revealed at last?
