Zavion loves Zuriel and can’t imagine a time without his twin around, yet he never thought having a twin would interfere with his finding a mate.  Cian knows one of the Dobbs twins is his mate, yet the two smell alike so it’s hard to figure out which one, especially since the two are always in each other’s pocket.  When Cian finally realizes who it is, he doesn’t waste time when it comes to claiming him.

From This Moment is the seventh release in the Moonlight Breed series.  This ongoing series by Gabrielle Evans started out being about a group of white shape-shifters who had formed a pack of their own after being exiled from their original packs.  As the series moved along, however, the author begin adding a variety of other paranormal beings, each of whom played a part in moving the series along and enlarged the pack in the process.  From This Moment is the story of two of those new members. 

Zavion, along with his brother Zuriel and a small group of others, is a recent rescue from the Hive.  Cian is one of the recent Murphy transplants and is an enforcer for the pack. The twist the author uses to confuse the men of their mate status is unusual and one I had not thought about before.  I liked this switch up and thought it gave the beginning of the story a fresh spin.  The men don’t waste time once they realize the connection that exists between them.  The author does not waste any time throwing obstacles in the men’s way, however, and the many twists and turns that follow really make this an entertaining story.

There are several new secondary characters introduced into the series with this story.  I am anxious to see them all get stories of their own.  From This Moment also sets up story eight perfectly.  I was shocked by what happened and can not wait to jump into Leap in the Dark.  Fans of this genre are sure to love From This Moment, and while the books can be read as stand-alones, this is a great series and readers would really miss out on some great stories.
