Johnny Marshall is a werewolf. Framed for a murder he did not commit, he changes his name to Sam Morgan and becomes a master thief, preying on those who pillage and rape the environment.  His next target is the owner of a huge corporation, but his planned theft is complicated by the owner's daughter. Sam is drawn to her in a way he has never experienced before.  As they begin to get to know each other, he realizes he should tell her some important things about himself, but holds back because he does not know how she will react.

Olivia Woodlock is desperate.  An important heirloom has been stolen from her family and they must have it back.  Without the elixir stolen by an evil, rich man with a hidden agenda, Olivia's father, brother, and uncle will sicken and die.  She is willing to go to extreme lengths to get it back, including hooking up with a criminal. Sam Morgan may be a thief, but to Olivia, he is her last hope to get back what her family needs without her having to sacrifice herself to a very evil man. As she gets to know Sam, she realizes he is much more than he seems, but cannot put her finger on exactly what is different about him. She is afraid to tell him the whole truth about her family and the elixir named Astravor because she is worried about how he will react.

Olivia and Sam are complex characters with some very unique characteristics. Their relationship progresses at a realistic pace and they compliment each other very well. Hidden secrets they keep from each other make it harder for them to really understand each other. This lack of essential communication adds more suspense and tension to the story.  The sexual tension between the two characters sizzles in a way that makes it almost palpable. The love scenes are so smoking hot, they left me absolutely breathless.  The plot line is intriguing with many unique twists and turns, keeping my eyes riveted to the pages.

This is the first book I have read by Ms. York, but it will not be the last. She is a talented author with an extremely creative imagination.  I will be avidly searching for more of her work in the future.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories of werewolves and the supernatural.  Crimson Moon is most definitely a keeper!
