Summary from Goodreads:
Mia Langdon—tomb raider and adventure-seeker—has everything she wants. Freedom. Independence. No chains (a.k.a. a man). Her troubles begin when she’s attacked on a dig in Peru. Soon, she’s forced to use her tomb raiding talents to find the flaming arrows of an Egyptian goddess. In the wrong hands, this weapon could destroy the human race—and nearly had.
Used to doing things her own way, it isn’t long before she figures out that she needs the help of Harrison Braden Stanton, her stuffy, but so yummy, Egyptologist and ex-lover. There’s one problem. He despises what she does. As Mia and Harrison find themselves in the middle of a battle between the Egyptian gods and goddess, there’s no choice for the woman with a Grand Canyon-sized independence streak and the man working for the Egyptian god, Osiris, but to work together to prevent the destruction of all they love.

Where do I even begin? This book just blew me away. After reading the synopsis, I must say that it caught my interest, but I never imagined it would be such an incredibly good read! I typically read books pretty quickly, but this book made me stay up until 4am reading it! Blood on the Moon was filled with so much action and adventure and was unlike any book that I have read.
Mia, is a tomb-raider and her assistant gets kidnapped. The only way to save her to is find ancient Egyptian arrows, which were hidden to protect man kind from annihilation. Calling upon the only man qualified to help her find the arrows, Harrison Braden Stanton. He is her ex, who still finds himself longing for her even though he is an engaged man. You find out that he is the son of the ancient God, Osiris. Also Mia finds herself asking for Ryder’s help, the delectable “bad boy” who assisted in kidnapping her assistant. Mia finds out that she is the daughter of an ancient Egyptian goddess, Bast. Their duty is to protect the arrows and for them to be destroyed and never to fall into the wrong hands. The arrows are what is keeping Jordyn, Mia’s assistant, from coming home safely.
Her group of “co-workers” venture into the dessert and explore a cave and wind up finding the arrows. Once the group finds the arrows, Vivian, the lady behind all this mess, shows up with thugs to steal the arrows. Once she shows up, all hell breaks loose.
Blood on the Moon is an action packed book and really makes you want to keep reading. Not only does it have action, but also steamy romance, which is always a plus. I will say that there is some violence, gore and a tad bit of sexual content, not that I’m complaining, just a forewarning for those of you who do not enjoy the listed content. I would like to thank Cassiel Knight for allowing me the privilege of reading and reviewing her book and I look forward to reading your other works!
