Publisher's Summary

Vampires. Werewolves. Beasts that hunt in the night. When New Orleans Detective Jane Hart investigates her first official homicide case, she never expects to have her world ripped apart. But the murder she's investigating is part of a deadly war between vampires and werewolves and now Jane is caught in that eternal battle. A battle that can't end well.
Werewolf Aidan Locke has been running New Orleans for years. It's his job to keep the vamps out of the city. But when a Master Vampire comes to town, determined to unleash hell, Aidan knows it's time to fight with all the fury of his pack. Beast versus vamp, until the last breath. Then he meets Jane.
One look, one taste, and Aidan knows that Jane is far more than she seems. Far more than she even knows herself to be. She's important in the paranormal war, not a pawn to be used, but a queen to be won. And if he can't keep her at his side, if he can't stop the darkness from descending on the town then Jane Hart will become not just a fierce cop, not some guardian, but something deadlier. Darker. Aidan will fight heaven and hell to change her fate. To change their fate because he is more than just a predator.
And Jane is more than prey. Far more.

It's the NARRATORS!!

This is the first book in the Blood and Moonlight series and Audible does not have the rest of the series and it doesn't look like they will.

Aidan Locke is the unseen force behind New Orleans, a city that’s home to werewolves. Nothing happens in his city that he doesn’t learn of. He’s alpha of his clan, responsible for keeping his race hidden from the human population and keeping vampires, their mortal enemies out of the city. When vampire deaths start turning up he seeks not just the culprits but the victims they’ve turned. The city’s newest detective intrigues him, she’s not as easily controlled as other humans and there’s something about her that draws his inner wolf. She’s a challenge and a mystery he plans to solve.

A woman is murdered one night and Detective Jane Hart, new to the city’s police force, is called to the gruesome scene. There’s something very odd about this murder and the sexy dark and deadly man she sees in the surrounding crowd staring at her, the owner of the bar across the street. When the murder victim disappears from the morgue later and then shows up dead the next day from different wounds she demands answers from her watcher even as she finds herself attracted to him.

This was not an enjoyable paranormal LISTEN, but is very sexy with lots of action and suspense and an engaging storyline. The author’s take on werewolves and vampires is a unique spin in this world she’s created. You have a city rich in culture where not all humans are clueless to the paranormal presence amongst them, working together to hide their existence.

Aidan is a wonderful antihero, a strong protector of his people and city not above deviousness and manipulation to obtain his objectives. Jane is an enigma to Aidan and to herself, there's so much more to her than even she realizes. She’s a gutsy lady, a fighter immune to werewolf control which brings up so many questions. There's a reason that some of us are not shocked by monsters for somewhere deep inside we know that they do exist.

A war is brewing between werewolves and vampires and Jane is caught in the middle. I loved the banter between Aidan and Jane, she fought him at every turn until she accepted the reality she was faced with. Their chemistry was palpable. I look forward to more of this story, though the ending is satisfactory for now you are left knowing there is more to this tale.
