Danielle is a dedicated police officer who listens to her gut and right now, her gut is giving her mixed signals.  Apprehension isn’t the only thing Danielle feels when she realizes what fell from the sky and cracked her windshield.  The colorful alien with the swirling eyes is causing her to shiver with desire.  Danielle is the one chasing him through the forest, so she never imagined that she’d be the one getting caught.  

Krol is a warrior on a mission and that mission is to make Danielle his mate.  Research shows that Danielle is compatible to him, so Krol assumed it would be an easier task.  The human ritual of courting was enjoyable, but slow and the Earth woman was turning out to be more of a challenge than Krol bargained for. 

Krol’s race needs human women to produce offspring.  He doesn’t have much time to convince her to return to his home planet with him.  Danielle agrees to leave Earth but not necessarily for the right reasons.  The transition isn’t an easy one, and Danielle’s safety is threatened.  Not only is she in danger of losing her life, but also her heart, to an alien who might not be capable of loving her. 

Ravished by Moonbeam is about huge, hot alien men looking for Earth women.  Krol and Danielle definitely make a lasting impression on each other when they first meet.  Danielle thinks she has everything under control and that her police skills are a match for Krol.  Boy, was she wrong!  Krol respects Danielle’s strength and he’s proud to have such a strong mate, but he still views her as someone he needs to protect.  On Krol’s planet, they don’t grasp the concept of love.  Although I could feel that Krol loved Danielle, I admit I wanted him to say it.  I wanted more emotion from Krol, even though I understood the reason why it wasn’t there.  It amused me to read that Krol thought the feeling of loving Danielle was something that needed to fixed, like a sickness.  There are some physical attributes about Krol that will leave readers in shock.  Cynthia Sax knows how to make readers curious for more and she has proven that with this wonderful story.
