Mara is attracted to Race, but knows she will have to leave because the Mal will be looking for her and her son.  Race also knows there is something special about her son, so he wants them close so he can protect them.

The sixth book in the Lucani Lovers series, Shades of Moonlight, has some interesting twists that are going to make this series much more intense.  Be aware that some of what is going on ties into Ms. Julian’s The Lost Goddesses series. 

Quite a few old characters show up to help out.  Several new characters were introduced that are going to have a profound effect on the Lucani and other races that are tied to them.  The Mal, which are the enemy of the Lucani, seem to have a few surprises up their sleeve.  I was surprised by some of the revelations that were made about them, especially as they had a direct bearing on this story.

Mara and Race, despite having communication problems, have great chemistry. Race always seems to be in control, but Mara brings out his vulnerable   side.  I had to laugh at Mara’s reaction to Race caring for her son.  I loved the scene with the bear and squirrels as well. 

While a lot of the stories can be read alone, this series should be read in order to get the most out of it, especially with the new subplot.
