I'm minutes away from hopping on a plane leaving St. Louis Missouri. I've been visiting my mom and sister and I'm waaaaaay past ready to go home. For one thing, I'm freezing my butt off! Time to get back to Florida. I grew up in St. Louis and I knew without a doubt, it was not the place I wanted to spend the rest of my life. Now before you St. Louis dwellers start blasting me for picking on your city, let me say, there are many wonderful features of this area. Fans love and support their sport teams, for sure. St. Louis offers a wide variety of good food and entertainment, a fantastic highway system, nearby wineries to make you drool and the most beautiful autumns you'll ever see.
But not for me. I longed for something more in whatever place I lived. I can't describe what that something was, but knew I'd recognize it when I felt it. In Ruled by the Moon, magical people such as witches and werewolves are drawn to Nocturne because of powerful ley lines that run through the area. I've always been fascinated with ley lines so I did some research and found they could very well be running through my fictitious Midwestern United States town. Check out this Google page for some great maps of ley lines. They're everywhere! According to Wikipedia, ley lines are "...supposed alignments of numerous places of geographical and historical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths, natural ridge-tops and water-fords." I believe they're spots that contain certain kinds of power.
On this visit to St. Louis, I checked in to see if I could feel energy from that strong line running through Missouri. Nope. At least not anything I could pick up. Or maybe, the energy that flowed was exactly what I found unpleasant. Maybe it affected me on some level I wasn't even aware of. I live in Florida now and though there are many qualities I love about this state (it's soooooo much better to be here in February), it's still not quite my perfect home. I've always been drawn to mountains and after a recent visit to Taos, New Mexico, would love to explore that area. Maybe one day.
How about you? Do you have a place that resonates with your soul? Thank you so much for visiting today.
About the Book
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
A psychic vet, a secretive werewolf, a menace stalking the shifters. Welcome to Nocturne.
Dylan is a werewolf with a problem. He shifts at the new moon as well as at the full moon. He was born a werewolf, not made like most shape-changers and due to these unique traits he's avoided joining a pack and has given up hope of having a normal life. Morgan is a veterinarian, ready to be on her own for a good long time after leaving a cheating, spineless husband. She has a plan for her life that doesn't include a bossy, furry man.
Both are drawn to Nocturne, a town filled with magic due to a strong convergence of ley lines in the area. Morgan and Dylan recognize a connection when they meet, but neither one is looking for romance. After a harrowing encounter with a panther shape-shifter, they must combine forces and work together to uncover a menace that threatens the town. If they can learn to trust each other and let their guard down, they have a chance to solve the mystery and open the door to love.
