Love can conquer all, if he’ll only believe…

Roman Jonas has spent years recovering from a violent assault when he was just a teenager. He’s worked hard, and finally found his place in the world. Now, if he can only get his coyote to agree. As a medicine man for his pack, he isn’t able to shift. It’s frustrating to say the least, but not as frustrating—or confusing—as the feelings he has for former Ranger Abraham Evans.

Abraham lost the ability to do his job effectively when he was shot. His right arm and hand are close to useless, and he’s had a hell of a time not dying over the past month. Sometimes it seems like it’d be so much easier to just give up, but a certain hazel-eyed man has captured his heart, and it won’t stop beating.

When Abraham is discharged from the hospital, he moves to Del Rey to be closer to Roman, and because he has no one else in his life who truly cares about him.

Slowly, he and Roman begin a tentative friendship that turns into something more enduring than they’ve ever dreamed of, but enemies from the past threaten everything and everyone Roman and Abraham love.

Reader Advisory: This book contains reference to past sexual assault.

Blue Moon Rising by author Bailey Bradford is the third book in the Coyote's Call series. I found I could read this just fine without having read the previous books. I love that, nice to have series and not be lost reading it for the first time at book three.
This is the story of Abraham and Roman.
Abraham is a shifter who has lost his ability to connect to his inner beast. He was shot, poisoned and died three times. He has worked to be strong despite not being able to shift. He does feel the loss of his beast, and he feels his lost of connection to his pack. He thinks most of what he lost when we first meet him. He is a Texas Ranger but has been in the hospital for a month now.
Roman a cat shifter tried to kill him and his entire pack. He has panic attacks from that night. He loves his plants. He likes that no one bothers him. He is the local medicine man. And something is missing in his life besides his coyote.
I loved that they both are wounded heroes but the parts that they think are broken about them are really what bind them together. They each bring something beautiful to this relationship. I also liked how Ms. Bradford made this a very emotional and angst filled read. I felt very connected to the characters and wanted them to find their peace and love. I would love to read much more from this series. Even go back and read what I have missed. This is the kind of story that stays with you long after you finish reading it. One for the keeper shelf.
