Aspen in Moonlight


When art historian Melissa Warren inherits three of her grandmother’s paintings that have captivated her since childhood, she sets out to discover more about the little known artist and the locations of the mysterious landscapes. Her search takes her to the Colorado Bear Conservancy and the artist’s great-granddaughter, Sula Johansen.

Sula is reluctant to help Melissa, but their instant chemistry is impossible to ignore. Sula is torn between falling in love and hiding the truth about who and what she really is. Of course, if Melissa paid closer attention to minor details—like the fact that Sula enjoys nibbling berries off the vine, is unusually strong, and consumes way too much honey—Melissa might not be in for the shock of her life.  Click here to read an excerpt.

Excellent and unusual story weaving a traditional romance with a paranormal twist.. but without it feeling like a paranormal tale.. hopefully will appeal to romance readers who don’t ‘do’ paranormal.

Excellent story and wonderful characters set against the glorious backdrop of the Rockies… the baddie is nasty, the wider cast are well drawn and the whole is an excellent read.

Oh, what a fascinating and intelligent book! I confess, I neglected household things to finish this story, and I suggest you do the same! This is one of the best books you will read for a long time.

…this book delivers a slow, sensitive journey from wariness to trust set against the beautiful wilderness of Colorado….The one thing that stood out for me at first is how real the setting is. Ms. Wacker really knows the area, down to the smallest detail from the scent of the forest after rain to the species of native plants and animals. This attention to detail really lent the story an authentic, truly real feeling…
