When Emily Hamliton's family disobeys the king, he decides to punish them by ordering that one of the daughters be given in marriage to a Scottish laird. Rather than give up her favorite daughter, Emily's stepmother comes up the idea of sending Emily's youngest step-sister, Abigail. Emily can't allow that to happen, Abigail is deaf and Emily believes she surely would be mistreated because of her handicap. She quickly offers to take Abigail's place as the Scottish Laird's bride. She soon finds herself living with the Sinclair clan where no one likes her and bethrothed to the Sinclair laird who has no desire to have her as a wife. She's not sure if things have gotten better or worse when she and her finace's sister are kidnapped by a rival clan.
Lachlan is the laird of the Balmoral clan, and the leader of his werewolf pack. When Lachlan went to steal the Sinclair laird's sister, he never intended to take Emily too. He's sworn never to take a chance of having a son who can't shape shift by marrying a human, but everything about Emily has him fighting to keep himself from claiming her. As an enemy inside attempts to put the Sinclair and Balmoral clans at each other's throats, Lachlan must face his own desire for Emily. He needs to decide if his growing love for her is enough to set aside what he's always believed would be best for his clan.
Moon Awakening is simply awesome! I just can't put it any more eloquently! From page one I was entranced. Stunningly sexy and emotionally riveting, Lucy Monroe has given us a paranormal romance that made me literally lose myself within the pages. Moon Awakening is easily one of the best paranormals I've ever read!
