Book Description

6 April 2012
Seemingly overnight, Claire Morgan has transformed: the normally mousy school-teacher is now bold, and her behavior is truly wild. Her eyes gleam silver. Suddenly she's a self-confident femme fatale with a libido that just won't quit. After an impulsive makeover, she's even . . . dare she say it? . . . sexy. Is Claire going insane? Then brutally handsome stranger Gideon March tells her she was bitten by a werewolf, and Claire figures he's the insane one. Sure, she was attacked by a nasty dog in a back alley, but this guy stalking her says he's a member of an underground society of lycan hunters - and his mission is to kill her immediately. When Claire finally realizes she really is a lycan, there's no turning back - because by now Claire and Gideon are bound by a hungry passion. If they can't break the curse by the next full moon, Claire's soul will be lost forever and Gideon will be forced to terminate his prey - a woman dangerously close to devouring him, heart and soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like shapeshifter books 6 Mar 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this. I know the current Lycan shapeshifter books has them as the good guys, but in this they were not, well at first. It was fun to have a different take on them, to the current romances of it all 'happens' on a full moon.
Claire Morgan is a teacher looking for a missing student in her class, when she's attacked by a werewolf (or Lycan). Gideon March kills the animal but not before Claire's infected. He knows he should kill her too, but for the first time in his life he wants to save a lycan from the fate that awaits her at the next full moon.
As Claire and Gideon race against time to find and kill the Alpha of the lycan pack and free Claire, a romance begins to develop
I loved the romance between the two and recommend this to anyone. Especially is you enjoy a book a bit different to 'normal'
I can hardly wait for the next installment

I read this in one day so it clearly had some good points recommending it and I would probably read a sequel. Like the previous reviewer it was interesting to see the Lycans as the baddies for once. However, there were some gaping holes in the plot such as HOW Gideon knew that if he killed the Alpha of the lycan that had infected Claire before she turned wolf at the first full moon and killed someone that she would be instantly cured. Given that the lycan-hunters have a kill first and ask very few questions afterwards approach how did they build their knowledge base on lycanthropy?
The sex was pretty boring as well - the number of times Claire's nipples pebbled against her shirt was just too many.
Darius, the non-killing lycan is set to be the most interesting character if this series develops. Kit, the kid sister, is already annoying (she's 24 anyway!) and typifies the huge over-use of guns in this book.
In fact, this is the main downside - it may be set in Texas but the acceptability of everyone carrying and using guns at every opportunity is a real turn-off for a British reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed! 10 Jan 2008
By Lark Howard - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this fast paced tale of a newly infected lycan and a dedicated lycan hunter, Sharie Kohler has created an intriguing world that draws the reader in from the first page.

Claire Morgan is a teacher looking for a missing student when she's attached by a werewolf. Gideon March kills the beast but not before Claire's infected. He knows he should kill her too, but for the first time in his life he wants to save a lycan from the fate that awaits her at the next full moon. As Claire and Gideon race against time to find and kill the Alpha of the lycan pack and free Claire, they must learn to trust each other even as they fight the dangerous passion they both feel.

The book's world unfolds to the reader as Claire learns about the lycans and the secret society of lycan hunters who will kill her on sight. While Claire finds a new strength as a lycan to deal with childhood abuse, Gideon faces his own ghosts to heal the burning hatred that has driven him since he was a teenager. One of the secondary characters, an ancient lycan named Darius, is especially fascinating because he forces both Claire and Gideon to look beyond the stereotype and trust him

Although I had never read a werewolf paranormal before, Ms. Kohler's characters and their world were so skillfully developed, familiarity with the mythology was not necessary. My only disappointment was that the story ended. I sure hope Ms. Kohler writes Darius's story one day soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous debut! 27 Dec 2007
By AndreaW - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Marked by Moonlight is the debut novel in an exciting new series by Sharie Kohler. It is super sexy, the tension is incredibly palpable and it kept me thoroughly entertained from beginning to end. One thing I love about Sharie's writing is that it is so descriptive. I always felt like I was right there with Claire and Gideon ... feeling what they were feeling, seeing what they were seeing, smelling what they were smelling. Claire is such a believable character as she went from meek to aggressive. The way that Sharie described and showed the changes that Claire went through, made me feel like I was a fly on the wall ... or that I was her. I loved Claire. And Gideon, well, he is just hot! He was persistent with Claire and didn't give up on her which was completely endearing. He is a strong, sexy hero that could of, given his past, taken the easy route, but didn't. Sharie made Gideon's decision to save Claire completely understandable ... and that made me love him even more. These two were made for each other. And the secondary characters added so much to the story. Overall, I loved this book and am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Blech 6 May 2012
By Not Telling - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm a big Sophie Jordan fan, and this makes me think she should stay with historicals.

First of all, the so-called mousy heroine Claire needed a serious attitude adjustment. She was so rude and snotty to Gideon. I just could not bring myself to actually care about her. For God's sake, he could have killed her at any time, by rules of his job. And most of the time he wanted to.

Second, I didn't feel any reason for him to like her, let alone fall in love with her. He just thought she was hot. Boring. No romance. You can't write about sex without SOME kind of feeling, otherwise it's not a romance.

Third, once she FINALLY accepts what she is, all they do is have sex. I eventually started scanning the second half of the book and found out - nothing. There's no emotional growth, there's no development, she doesn't start being, I don't know, maybe, nice? Nope.

I MIGHT try her others, hoping that the characters are better.

3.0 out of 5 stars The basic story was ok. The best parts were the timid teacher turning into the angry aggressor. 24 Sep 2009
By Jane - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Claire is a mousy, timid school teacher. She lets people walk all over her because she doesn't like confrontation. One evening she is bitten by a lycan (werewolf). Her eyes turn silver. She won't turn into a wolf until the next full moon. Meanwhile, she begins feeling strength, hunger and anger. There are a couple of great scenes as she shows her anger and threatens her abusive father and a sneering, drug-dealing student. The hunger she feels is for both food and sex.

Gideon is a member of an underground society of lycan hunters. They hunt and kill all lycans using silver bullets. Gideon sees Claire being bitten and follows her home. He is reluctant to kill her and is strangely attracted to her. After he enlightens her about her circumstances, he agrees to help her. Claire was bitten by a newly created lycan. If they can kill the alpha leader of that lycan's pack before the next full moon, Claire will turn back into a normal human. If they don't kill the alpha, Claire will turn into a wolf at every full moon and need to feed off of humans while in wolf form. Future killing of the alpha won't solve the problem. It must be before the first full moon after being bitten.

I loved the few parts where the former mouse becomes aggressive and strong. I also enjoyed the character Darius, what he did and what happened to him. As to the rest of the story, it was ok. It was primarily Gideon and Claire trying to solve the mystery and find the alpha. They fall for each other along the way. The story is good with a different take on lycans - she can turn back to being human if they solve their problem. I had no major problems with it. I just wanted to be a little more surprised or delighted in order to give it more stars. My favorite parts were minor parts of the story rather than the main plot.

The author used the typical romance formula which is: the couple falls in love, has a conflict causing them to be apart, and then gets together again. I'm ok with this formula, but I did not like the method used to separate them. Claire made the inaccurate assumption (one of my pet peeves) that Gideon didn't love her or want to be with her, so she left him. The fact is they had just spent the night together. He never said or did anything to imply he didn't want her. I say forget the formula if you can't come up with something interesting. The story would have been fine without this brief separation. If you need to separate Claire and Gideon, consider using Darius or his housekeeper to cause it. They were intriguing characters.

Story length: 346 pages. Swearing language: strong. Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: 6. Total number of sex scene pages: 17. Setting: current day Texas. Copyright: 2008. Genre: paranormal romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars I 'Lycan' It! 1 Jan 2008
By Alyssa Goodnight - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Claire Morgan is a skittish mouse of a woman who's dedicated her life to high-risk high-schoolers. She never imagined `high-risk' would involve a dark alley and the excruciating pain of a lycan bite. Assuming she's only been bitten by a stray dog and not a newly-transformed student, Claire is oblivious to the slow, inexorable transformation that will culminate on the next full moon, leaving her a fearsome, frenzied wild beast.

Gideon March has a long and vengeful history with lycans. A witness to Claire's assault, he kills her attacker, fully intending to murder Claire before she has a chance to change and feed. But inexplicably, he can't pull the trigger and instead finds himself in the unfamiliar position of trying to convince Claire what her future holds unless they can reverse the effects of the lycan bite before it's too late.

Thrumming with sexual tension and a thrilling undercurrent of suspense, Marked by Moonlight cements Sharie Kohler as a compelling new voice in paranormal romance.
