Blurb/Synopsis: Shea Harper is forced to stay in boring, hot and dry Phoenix, Arizona for college. But once she meets the enigmatic yet positively egocentric Lucian, Shea’s life changes forever.
She finds out that she comes from a long line of descendants called Vessels. In her soul is the key to destroying an ancient prison protecting the world from darkness itself: Lucian’s father.
Up until now, Lucian has captured every descendant except Shea. With her powers awakening, all vampires want to drag her down to the pit. But Lucian is territorial. She’s the first female Vessel… and he’s convinced she belongs to him.

Saucy and tauntingly surprising, Black Moon captures the struggle between burning alive with desire and castrating the heart. This is a love story that will drain you dry.

FTC Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the author, editor, publisher, or Promo Host. This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

My Rant: What a great book. Not only do you have a awesome plot with great characters, you have a story that completely captures your attention.  I loved Shea as a character she was determined, witty, funny and loving. Watching her character develop into an awesome heroine. Aidan is sweet, something like the guy next door but in the book you feel like he is hiding something. But if you had to choose for Shea in the beginning you would thing Aiden was a perfect fit for her. Lucian was just raunchy, dark and invigorating. You love to hate him but parts of me felt for his background and his story. The romance in the story is definitely swoon worthy. It pulls at your heart as you watch the characters go through the motions. Both authors have done an superb job at telling this story. This is the first time a read a book that was written b more that one author and I will tell you these two authors just mesh together. Although you can when the writing changes from one to the other it does not take away from the plot at all. From my personal opinion it made the story even more vivid. I felt like I am actually getting the story told from different views because the story voice was different due to the different writing styles. Becca  C Smith and F.M. Sherril made this book totally rock for me. I was addicted to the character the plot and romance. Honestly, I am missing the characters now as I am writing this review. So if you looking for a story with an extremely exciting plot, hot male characters with and edge to them and a heroine that can hold her own, then you should grab yourself a copy of Black Moon.

My Recommendation: 
I rated this book 5 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts and would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys a plot that contains some suspense, action and romance with memorable characters. 

Aren't author's bios boring? I always wanted to read one that went something like this:

F.M. Sherrill: recent citizen of earth. Plans on ruling the planet once she gets over the common cold. Or, F.M. Sherrill: time traveler. Decided to alter the space-time continuum by writing a novel, thus changing history slightly, which will eventually lead to the rise of a new human species.

But here it is. F.M. Sherrill is a novelist, A.K.A. an avid bullshitter; that's why she lives in L.A. She's been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. When she's not writing, she's making steampunk weapons, sewing giant plant-eater Mario plushes, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.
