Gabriel Slade runs Hollywood with his gorgeous blue eyes and egregious temper. No one knows that underneath it all is a man with a frozen heart, cursed to become a beast at every full moon. For seven days he has no choice but to roam the earth as a vicious animal, until he meets a woman who can change it all.

Luna Grace has a hatred for everything Gabriel Slade stands for, but she doesn't even know what he looks like. When a chance encounter reveals feelings Luna never knew she harboured, it stands to reason that she would run.

Can Luna overcome her hatred and break the curse? Or will Gabriel's temper keep her from realizing her true feelings, dooming him to remain the beast forever?

New twist on a traditional theme. I enjoy a story with intriguing surprises. So, I’m reading along, enjoying the story, sure I know what’s going to happen, then Kemp throws in a delightfully unexpected curve! Every detail she brought to my attention played a significant role in the story later. Even the ending was a bit unexpected, so literally (enjoy the pun), she kept me guessing until the very end.

Despite a few editing flaws, the characters are very likeable, and I started rooting for them at the very beginning. Luna’s strong counter to Gabe’s alpha was perfectly developed throughout, and the secondary characters were so well done, I’d welcome their stories in the near future. I admire Kemp’s ability to overcome the common curse of “first in a series” by presenting a new world to enjoy and leaving me with just the right number of questions. Well done! Four satin pillows.
