Gideon (Bound by Moonlight) introduces complex new characters to launch a second series set in a New Orleans inhabited by secretive shape-shifters. Det. Silas McCreedy, new to the NOPD, tries to rescue Nica Fraser from a dark-alley encounter, but she’s a Shifter too and doesn’t need his help. Sparks fly immediately despite their very different reasons for coming to New Orleans: Nica’s an assassin with an unknown agenda, and Silas is working to ensure his family’s future and trying to find out why Shifter women are disappearing. With the help of earlier series characters Charlotte Caissie and Max Savoie, Silas and Nica uncover the origins of the Shifter species and their own backgrounds, forcing all four to face deadly risks as they chase after happiness. Vivid writing, intriguing plot twists, and a satisfying ending will keep readers coming back to Gideon’s magical NOLA. Agent: Karen Solem. (Dec.)
