Andre Nezat is on the move yet again when he stops for gas in the tiny town of Mellowbush, Michigan.  With the help of the local pastor, Andre finds a job and a place to stay, assisting a lady in the early stages of Alzheimer. After meeting the patient’s son, Thomas Durling, moving on is not an option for Andre. Thomas is Andre’s mate. 

Moon-Touched is an extremely heartwarming story with quite a number of issues the characters must deal with.  Thomas is a lonely and bitter man. Growing up in homophobic Mellowbush, the town’s people drove Thomas away as soon as he was old enough to leave. Living in a large city was more acceptable for Thomas; however he was not immune to falling for boyfriends with deceptive motives.  

Andre has the challenge of working to live while hiding from his enemy at the same time. Being a wolf, mute and on the run, Andre’s only choices are to keep moving from one small town to the next. Thomas and Andre shared their dramatic past, as well as fears, only with each other, creating a bond between them. Thomas was the first person to embrace both the human side, as well as the wolf side of Andre. Andre taught Thomas that the heart doesn’t pick who it wants. It just wants. 

Vivien Dean’s Moon-Touched is an exceedingly touching and enjoyable saga.
