Moon Struck
La Rue #3
By Donna Grant
Releasing July 24th, 2017
In Moon Struck (La Rue #3) by Donna Grant, Minka Verdin is being hunted by an evil priestess all so the woman can steal Minka's powers to become more powerful. Determined to do all she can to keep her friends safe, Minka is ready to do whatever it takes, even if it means sacrificing herself. However, Solomon LaRue is determined to protect her at all costs. Will they be able to defeat the evil Delphine before Minka's visions come true, so they can achieve happy ever after?

Although I haven't read the other books of this series, this story can be read as a stand-alone and it was a story I absolutely enjoyed from start to finish due to the reasons Delphine wants Minka, what the evil priestess is willing to do to win, and the ending that left me wanting more of this series because of how it ended. The way this story started had me hooked because the heroine is intriguing and has been through a lot already, yet she knows she can't let her guard down for anything. What will Minka discover about those she's close with? Will she be able to handle what is bound to come her way?

As for the dialogue, it was fascinating due to the main characters back stories, the obstacles these two face including Minka thinking that Solomon doesn't like her, and the ending that had me concerned for the main characters. Will they be able to defeat Delphine? However, there were light-hearted moments that had me smiling, because the secondary characters are determined to push these two together and love to give Solomon advice that he should give Minka a chance. He can't hold onto the sorrows and loses of his past forever.

Moreover, the main characters made this story a really enjoyable read, but together with the secondary characters made it a book that I could not put down. Minka is strong and brave and I liked how determined she was to protect the people she cared about. She was willing to do whatever it takes to defeat Delphine, even if it was the last thing she did. I also liked how she challenged Solomon and I liked that she stood up to him after he did something that could have broken all the reasons she had for trusting him. While the hero, he's had it rough with those he loved dying, but I liked that he stepped up to his responsibilities as one of the beings responsible for policing the paranormal community. I also liked how protective he was of Minka, even though it isn't easy for him to give love another chance, not after what happened to the last woman he cared about. Yet, Minka is different. She can handle whatever comes her way, which is proven by how she deals with Delphine.

Overall, Ms. Grant has penned a wonderful read in this book where the pages flew by due to the interactions of the hero and heroine as well as the main characters with the secondary ones; the hot romance that shows these two are made for each other; and the ending that has me wanting to know what happens next for Minka and Solomon and all the secondary characters. Will they come out on top against the evil priestess? I would recommend Moon Struck by Donna Grant, if you enjoy paranormal romance, the enemy to lovers trope, or books by authors Dianne Duvall, Moira Rogers, Coreene Callahan and Lora Leigh.


Years ago, Solomon LaRue’s life was ripped apart when his fiancée was taken from him brutally and without cause. After, he vowed to never love again and put all of his energy into defending New Orleans from the evil Voodoo priestess out to destroy everything he held dear. Until a beautiful and maddening witch from the Quarter comes into his life and shakes everything up. Now, he thinks of nothing but her, and despite the dangers surrounding his family, he can’t help but alter his plans to make sure she stays safe. At all costs.


For most of her life, Minka Verdin thought she was nothing more than a gifted fortune teller until a life-altering experience brought her into her powers. Now, honed and hardened to be the weapon she knows she can be, she has no time for lust and love in her life. Unfortunately, a certain sexy-as-sin werewolf occupies her thoughts—and her heart—day in and day out. Minka knows that the survival of many is always more important than the safety of one, and she is more than willing to sacrifice herself so that those she loves remain untouched. But Solomon is having none of that and reminds her that there is no force as strong as the magic between them.

Grab it TODAY!

Was it worse to want someone you couldn’t have? Or to never know that kind of longing? 
Minka wasn’t sure which was more awful. She knew that no matter how much she hungered for Solomon’s touch or craved his attention, that she would never be his. That kind of knowledge did strange things to a person.  
Her heart had jumped in her throat to find him there. It had felt like forever since she’d seen his face and those brilliant blue eyes. All the LaRues and Chiassons had them, but Solomon’s were brighter than the others’. 
And his hair. The dark blond strands were laced with pale brown that made her want to sink her hands into the locks.  
His face was all hard angles and ruggedness that she longed to touch and kiss. The shadow of dark whiskers on his jaw made her stomach flutter and her skin prickle with awareness. 
Then there was that body of his. Could anyone wear jeans like Solomon? The denim clung to his trim waist and hips, curving over his fine ass before encasing his long legs. Though it was his ability to wear a plain white shirt over the impeccably hard sinew of his chest and wide shoulders that could make her heart miss a beat. 
He was simply mouth-watering. The complete package...and utterly out of reach.
