LOVESTRUCK GIVEAWAY HOP – Max is back!


Lovestruck: (adjective) having a passionate or overwhelming feeling of love; smitten.

No other character I’ve ever created has fit this description like Max Savoie. Mysterious, dangerous, unpredictable, powerful, sexy. A prophesied Shape-shifter leader left with a mobster’s legacy. Max of the sultry innuendos, intense green eyes, Armani suits and red high tops whose love for the wrong woman – a human AND a New Orleans police detective, no less! – will cost him everything, and still he’s willing to give more to have her. Sigh . . .

I was so love-struck by his story, I couldn’t contain it in just one book. Even after three more novels in my “By Moonlight” series to develop Max and Charlotte’s romance, it still wasn’t enough to satisfy. I wanted more. And so did readers . . .






“I loved the character of Max Savoie, the ultimate predator hidden under the veneer of civility. His ultimate faith and devotion were both heartwarming and heartbreaking.” Night Owl Reviews on Masked by Moonlight

“There’s something compelling about both Max and Charlotte. Max will break your heart.” Book Binge on Masked by Moonlight

“Cee Cee and Max are the sort of couple one wants to read about more than once.” All About Romance on Chased by Moonlight

“Two of the most electrifying characters ever created.” Fresh Fiction on Captured by Moonlight

“Everything I want in a romance. Sizzling passion, a sexy hero, and a paranormal love to last the ages.” NYT bestseller, Gena Showalter on Bound by Moonlight

“Max is the epitome of what an alpha character should be. He has the ability to melt you with just a look.” Dana, Readaholics Anonymous

“I’m just in love with Max—he’s soooo hot. I need more Max and Charlotte.” Maithe, reader

“I LOVE your By Moonlight series. Max is one of the finest heroes I have read in such a long time.” Laura M, reader

“Please write another book featuring Max and Cee Cee. We still love and miss that bond we felt with them.” Leonard, reader

“I’m dying to know what happens to Max and Cee Cee!!” Heather S, reader

“Love, love this series but we need another Max and Cee Cee book—it’s not finished!!” Leanna, reader

It’s not finished for me, either. Enjoy a sneak peek of my work-in-progress: Remembered by Moonlight

Max knew the musky, mysterious scent that reached him even before the sound of her approach. Voodoo Love. A special blend from a perfumery in the Quarter. It teased about the edges of his awareness, inciting a prickle of unexpected response. His breathing quickened. His skin heated. Anticipation made his pulse stumble. But when he turned, he saw a stranger. 

The flicker of disappointment was a greeting he’d grown used to.

“You’re up early. Have trouble sleeping?”

Her voice was low, husky, as sultry as her looks, and totally unfamiliar to him when he’d awakened in captivity, surrounded by smothering unknowns. He’d been released from that prison into her care two days ago in favor of this opulent but no less confining jail. He couldn’t leave without an escort, and she held the keys. For his own protection, they’d told him.

That was a lie.

Her name was Charlotte Caissie, a detective with the New Orleans police department. She carried her shield and gun the way most women did lipstick and a designer clutch, effortlessly, as if they were part of who she was. Tall, curvy, with a confident stride even in those four inch heels, she was fiercely exotic from flashing dark eyes and café au lait skin to her short leather skirt and zebra striped blouse. Gorgeous, lethal, and in love with him.

There was nothing aggressive about her gaze when it touched upon his. Her broken heart was in her eyes, but only for a moment. Then she smiled and played the game they settled into every time they were together. That of polite, carefully neutral guests forced out of necessity to share the same space.

He didn’t have to pretend.


In honor of the Lovestruck Giveaway Hop and Max Savoie, I’m giving away a $10 Amazon gift certificate. Use it to fall in love with my preternatural hero or to pursue your own romantic ideal. Get carried away.

Make sure to follow the Hop links to find out what other special characters have left us Love-Struck.


And for more Max and “By Moonlight,” I’m thrilled to announce the formation of a brand new and ubber fun Goodreads Group: “Nancy Gideon by Moonlight.” Created by a trio of enthusiastic readers, the group offers Book Buddy of the month selections, a relaxed and chatty forum to talk books and heroes and romance . . . and Max, a place for questions and breaking news, and awesome giveaways. Hope you’ll join us and get caught up in the seductive and addictive “By Moonlight” world.

  1. Hi Nancy

    Well, I'm a big fans of Max and CeeCee, so I'm squealed in delight when you said you will continue their story. I have read book 1-4 from your "by Moonlight" series, and can't pick your books afterward, because I want more Max and CeeCee. I will (im)patiently waiting for Remembered by Moonlight :D

    1. Oooooh, you really need to give the Shadows books a look. Max and Cee Cee are in them and each one furthers their main storyline. Think of it as priming the pump until the new book comes out.
