Diablo Lake: Moonstruck #1

By Lauren Dane



In Diablo Lake, Tennessee, a town populated by werewolves, witches and more, magic woven deep into the earth protects the town’s secrets from outsiders.

Katie Grady left Diablo Lake to get over a humiliating breakup. But her family needs her help, so she’s back, in a sublet right across the hall from the guy she’s lusted after for years. Jace Dooley is hotter than ever, and their friendship picks up along with massive doses of grown-up chemistry.

The very scent of Katie sharpens Jace’s canines, makes the wolf within him stir. There’s nothing more alluring to a Pack Alpha than a sexy female who is so very in charge. She won’t be coddled, but if he plays his hand just right she might be convinced to become his.

Katie presents a challenge to Jace’s wolf nature, whose chief instinct is to protect. Especially now that she’s coming into the magic that is her birthright—and suddenly Jace isn’t the only one who’s interested in Katie or the raw power she’s just learning to use.


Diablo Lake is a town that is inhabited by shifters, witches and guardians. There are two packs of werewolf’s in this town that are in a power struggle and one witch that stirs up everything.  But this is a story of a girl that was humiliated into leaving thinking that she could build a life away from magic.  Little does she know that it takes moving back to help her ailing father to truly find her place in the world.

I really adored Katie.  She is a bright spirit that embraces her quirkiness. Some of the stuff that she says made me laugh out loud.  And she is completely ferocious in protecting the people she loves.  Jace, the werewolf that Katie has had a crush on since she was young, has a strength to lead and protect his pack.  He finds himself in a power struggle of his own, yet his only thought is protection.

There are many other characters that play a role in this story of shaping Katie’s evolution into her new found power.  One of my favorite characters that helps Katie on her journey is her best friend Aimee, we all need a friend like her in our lives.  This story has many strong female characters.  I love the way this series has started and look forward to the next story.
