One man claims her by blood, the other by possession. One wants revenge.

At the rise of the Black Moon, Sierra is to be named the new Alpha of her pack. But first, she must take a wolf mate before she can claim the position. Problem is, she’s in love with two men, one of whom is strictly forbidden. Willing to live a lie, she publicly acknowledges one and keeps the other her dirty little secret.

Nolan and Marek understand Sierra’s needs. Nothing gives them more pleasure than to make her burn, body and soul. Until the pack is attacked and a temperamental stranger from the past threatens to send them spiraling apart. Now she must choose between love and duty, a decision with fatal consequences. Whoever said you could be Alpha without making the hard choices...lied.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, ménage (m/f/m).


Black Moon Rising has a lot going on for a novella. The reader is introduced to Sierra’s mate, Marek, and her guard, Nolan, right before a mating ceremony. The mating ceremony doesn’t go smoothly and is interrupted. Past mistakes rear their heads to complicate the new alpha’s life. What made this story even more intriguing is that the alpha is a female.

This is a fast moving story with some action. Sierra, Marek and Nolan have an explosive ménage that just gets better as the story unravels. The major characters are all very likable. Eliza Gayle does a nice job of giving us some villains, but also making the certainty of their evil ambiguous until the end. There are a couple plot twists that will keep you turning the pages to find out how it ends.
