A Trick of the Moon

Attorney Maura Atwell has exchanged her heel for a pair of boots whil her dad is recovering from a stroke.  When what seems to be a Native American Ceremonial lodge, or Kiva, is found on her father's Dude Ranch, she does what any good lawyer would do, protects her interests by calling in an expert to investigate.  Her College friend, Archeologist Declan Littlecreek can give her a better idea of what is what, and she's always wanted him; maye they can multi-task. 

Declan has been a little in love with Maura since college, but never had the guts to make a move prefering to keep her as a friend.  Now that she's asked for his help in exploring her find, he's decided to see if he can interest her in some sexual exploration as well.  With his best friend, Officer Dario Fuentes,  they will explore the boundaries of the kiva and their relationship.  But when all is said and done will they be together or will it all be just a trick of the moon?

Melinda Barron's newest release, Trick of the Moon, is a wonderful addition to her list of releases.  I love the fact that Maura is a strong self-assured woman who takes not stuff from anyone.  I also loved how her father was willing to accept what she wants for herself.  A definite must add to your reading list.

Length: Novel

BBW Maura Atwell has put away her attorney shoes to run her father’s guest ranch while he recovers from a stroke. When what looks to be a Native American kiva is discovered on her father’s land, she does what any good attorney would do: she has it investigated.

Archeologist Declan Littlecreek has wanted Maura since they were in college. Knowing sex and friendship don’t always mix, he kept things from getting too heavy. Now that Maura is asking for his help in exploring her new find, he’s all game. And he’s ready to explore the attraction between them if she is.

Declan and his best friend, policeman Dario Fuentes, travel to the Full Moon Ranch to see what they can learn. While the threesome explores the kiva, they also discover a passion that burns hot between the three of them, binding them together. Will it survive the end of the exploration or will it turn out to be just a trick of the moon?
