Synopsis from Goodreads
Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up… and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.
Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman… one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.
I’ve got to be honest Moonlight Seduction has left we without words, I honestly did not see the MAJOR twists coming and I’ve been left a bit blindsided TBH. Utterly gripping, the plot metaphorically has me by the throat and left me gasping for air 😉
While the plot has snippets of the underlying threads from Moonlight Sins, it really is Gabe’s show. He has had a lot to take in within a short period of time; not only his warped family dynamics but also the ghosts of girlfriends pasts altering the course of his future and them to add the icing to the cake – the return of Nikki into his life after a 4-year self-imposed exile.
The reasons for Nikki’s prolonged absence and her reluctance to interact with Gabe on a personal level are quickly revealed and ensure a deep desire to protect Nikki from any further heartache. However, there is an undeniable spark between the two despite the 10 year age gap and Gabe’s defense mechanisms which cause him to be utterly douche-tastic.
The action and continuing sense of foreboding throughout Moonlight Seduction create a high level of tension and contribute to the compelling nature of the story as a whole. I veered between wanting to punch Gabe to utterly swooning over him.
Secrets are uncovered while others are merely hinted at (Senator I have my eye on you) the path has been sown for the final installment, Moonlight Scandals, where the devil himself, Devlin, takes the spotlight. Will all the skeletons in the de Vincent’s closet finally be exposed!!!! Well we have to wait until January 2019 not find out 😏
