Another hysterical story from THE STILL SEXY LADIES GUIDE TO DATING IMMORTALS: Did Tala Wilde's dance for her immortal man really work? After that many margaritas it's hard to tell if howling at the moon was the best way to find a guy. But is Devlin the perfect mix of man and animal? After the ribbing her friends gave her about wanting a lover like a wolf she's a bit cautious especially when she finds him naked in the wolf pen of her zoo.

Dancin' in the Moonlight is the "werewolf" book in the Still Sexy Ladies Guide to Dating Immortals series, all of which are written by different authors. The book was primarily sex scenes with bits of action thrown in. The sex was graphic at times, but never in a scorching, sexy way. The tone seemed to lean towards funny, but the humor mostly falls flat.

The story is about a werewolf named Devlin who needs to find his one true mate in order to rule his clan. The mate is Tala, who falls for him even though her common sense tells her not to. Enter a brother who wants to stop their love in order to become ruler himself and a band of shifter hunters they all must escape.

Sadly, there was nothing to distinguish this book from any other shifter tale other than a few minor gay and bisexual characters written into the novel with no purpose. It seemed as though they were added to compensate for the rampant homophobia and sexually oriented slurs coming from the hunters.




  1. Thank you for your review! I don't think I'll read it soon.

  2. Thanks for the review. This was on my list but if it is just a typical one I think I will skip!

  3. Well that is a bummer. The cover had looked like something lighter and funny to me but I'll definitely avoid it if it is mostly just sex.
