Moondance by Linda K. Hopkins 💕 Review, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Shifter Romance)



Unlike any shapeshifter romance you've ever read!

Handsome, alluring, and a little dangerous, Melissa Hewitt's boss can barely manage to acknowledge her. But there is something about Leander Garrett that makes him impossible to ignore. He is not the only thing plaguing Melissa’s thoughts, however; a huge panther, as black as night, pursues her relentlessly through her dreams.

As winter turns into spring, Leander’s chilly demeanor begins to thaw, but danger prowls through the mountains, and Lee has a secret that lurks beneath his elegant clothes and rippling physique. Something that compels him to reject what he desires the most.

Can he learn to see the good in himself and finally allow his heart to love, and be loved in return?

˃˃˃ An engrossing and captivating tale of romance, Moondance will keep you enthralled to the very last page.


I couldn't put it down!

This story played out 100% unlike ANY shifter romance I have EVER read. The change was so refreshing, and I loved the feeling of truly not knowing what would happen next.

Lee made a great hero. I loved his vulnerability and how he protected Melissa so fiercely. He maintained his humanity while in his other form, and I enjoyed reading his interactions with Melissa.

I enjoyed reading Melissa's stubbornness. She didn't give up on anything very easily, and that relentless streak made for some interesting situations.

The final love scene was rather...unconventional. While I chose to see the symbolism of what it represented between Lee and Melissa, I could see how some people may take issue with it. No spoilers here, but I will say that you've probably never read anything like it!

All in all, I enjoyed the uniqueness of this story and would definitely read more books by Linda!

(I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)


Melissa’s eyes were on the view ahead instead of the trail and she missed seeing the animal standing in her path. A sudden blur was her only warning before she fell into the dirt, her arm securely gripped in the mouth of a large, tan cougar. She screamed, and for the briefest moment, its grip slackened before it dug its teeth even deeper into her flesh. With her free hand she hit the creature in the ribs, and it snarled and shook her arm, ripping it even more. She scrabbled her hand over the dusty ground and her fingers curled around the smooth bark of a stick. Heaving it into the air, she swung at the creature, catching it on the ribs. The cat loosened its grip, and she pulled her arm away and scrambled backward before pushing herself hurriedly to her feet. Her skin was ripped and bloody, but she barely noticed as she grabbed the branch again and swung it through the air in the direction of the cougar. It snarled and darted away from the crude weapon, its olive-green eyes watching her intently, and Melissa gripped the branch more tightly.
A crashing sound came from the trees, and then, suddenly, a flash of black rushed through the air, slamming into the cougar and sending it flying. She stumbled back as a huge black cat, bigger by far than the cougar, fought her attacker. Her mouth went dry as she realized it was a panther – just like the one from her dreams. Tan and black blurred together as snarls and growls ripped through the air. Blood spurted over the dirt; the cougar yelped but met the panther with bared teeth. The black cat didn’t even pause as it lunged for the cougar’s throat, ripping open the side of its neck. The cougar stumbled to the ground, then rose and fled.
The panther watched as the cougar disappeared between the trees, then slowly turned its bright green gaze on Melissa. She stared back, frozen with fear, as the creature looked at her. It glanced at her arm, bloody and dirty, and she stepped backward, holding the injured limb to her chest as she gripped the stick. The cat followed her movement, then with a flick of its tail turned and vanished through the trees.
