Rancher Connor Hawkins despises every drop of demon blood that courses through his veins. He would give just about anything to become human. The only way he can make that happen is to participate in a darkly sensual ritual under a rare full Halloween moon with a woman who loves him unconditionally. He's got the full moon, if only he can risk his heart and tell Cassandra Claire what he really is.

Cassie Claire thinks she already knows the real Connor, and she's been in love with him since she was eighteen years old. They've shared a unique friendship from the day her father died and Connor brought her home to live with his family. But she's twenty-three now, and on this
Halloween night she's determined to make the stoic, stubborn Connor open his eyes and finally see her for the strong, capable young woman she's become.

But it's hard to trust when you never have, and Connor has precious little time before the full Halloween moon wanes, not to be seen again for many, many years. He has to tell her, but if he does, will she love him enough to do what must be done?

They'll both find out, one passionate night under a Demon Moon.


“…Cameron Dane writes with such detail and emotion. I was drawn into this tale of demons, love, sex and rituals and was unable to put it down. From the beginning to the very last page I was lost in this world where demons are real and love can be unconditional. I love this story but also this series and look forward to reading more. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a dark, sensual tale of love, lust and scorching hot sex.”
--Sandra's The Romance Studio's 5 heart review


“…Ever thought you had fallen in love with a demon?  Well, in Demon Moon that is exactly what has happened to Cassie, except she doesn't know Connor is a demon, just that he is the man she desires above all others.  I was instantly drawn into this story, especially the first chapter, which has its own twists and turns.  I was engrossed from the first.  The author has created a number of races that can coexist in more than one plane which makes the story even more intriguing and I hope to read from her in the future…Be warned there are some sexual scenes between human and demons but they do fit well into the overall story. I look forward to the next story from this author.”
--Tanya from Joyfully Reviewed


"...Demon Moon is the first book in Cameron Dane’s ongoing series revolving around the Hawkins brothers and their ranch. I’m going to say upfront that I love the concept for this fast paced and sexy story that has a twist of ‘demon’ thrown in. The passion between Connor and Cassie is scorching hot and only gets hotter as the story progresses. These two have so much pent up sexual frustration, it’s amazing that either one of them hasn’t spontaneously combusted at some point in the last five years… Cassie is the light that brightens the dark world of pain and despair that Connor has been living with for over two hundred years and she tempts him as no other woman ever has…The brothers, Caleb and Cain make great secondary characters, and the witty bantering dialogue between the four of them livens up an otherwise dark story. And the story taking place on a moonlit Halloween night is nothing short of perfect. There is a lot to tell about these three men and Ms. Dane does a wonderful job of doling out pieces of interesting background information on demons without it being dull, flat or boring… Keep your eyes open for the next two installments in this original storyline, with the releases of Falling and Renecade."
--Mystical Nymph at LiteraryNymphsReviewsOnly


"…I really liked the way that this whole story was set up and read. … And I really hope that two other stories will come out of these stories with his two brothers. Oh, I forgot to mention that they are demon too didn’t I? I think I also forgot to mention that this is a very sexy read… A great read from Ms. Dane."
--Missy at Fallen Angel Reviews


"Using tension and passion with a few surprises thrown in, Cameron Dane pens a captivating tale of true love with Demon Moon. …Steamy and intriguing, Cameron Dane has penned a tale well worth your time with Demon Moon. The best part is that Connor has two sexy brothers that need their own stories." 
--Elise Lyn at


"…I really enjoyed this story and thought the storyline was fascinating. My heart went out to Connor for being burdened with this demon living inside of him. I found myself hoping that Cassie and Connor would get together and she would help him with the ritual as a show of love to him. This story is a definite keeper in my library."
--Diana from Night Owl Romance Reviews


"...Whew! Talk about hot and heavy. DEMON MOON starts off carnal and does not let up until the very last page. Cassie and Connor have a lot of pent up sexual frustration, and there is no way either of them are going to be able to deny it for much longer. I really enjoyed the contrast in the characters; one dark and tortured, the other light and carefree. It's no wonder that Connor is drawn to Cassie, since she represents everything that he isn't. In allowing his demonic side to control who he is, he's effectively shut out any potential happiness that he might have. Now, the excuse that he has for never getting close to anyone hurts him even more than his demonic nature. Cassie is wonderful at being both the temptress and the innocent at once, and she's determined to get Connor right where she wants him. Secondary characters such as Connor's brothers, Cain and Caleb, provide humor in what could have been an extremely dark tale. They want Cassie and Connor together as well, and are more than happy to help Cassie get her demon. And I'm positive that we've not seen the last of those two. An impassioned love story with plenty of titillating scenes, Cameron Dane's DEMON MOON should not be missed!"

Demon Moon Excerpt: X-Rated


Excerpt: This is just the beginning of the scene that takes place right after Cassie overhears that Connor is a demon:


Connor didn't waste a second with indecision; he was right on Cassandra's heels. She'd had a head start, and he knew her hurt was pushing her forward with incredible speed. Connor was a big man, though, and the pain he'd witnessed in her eyes spurred him onward, too, so it was no time before he was within reach.

"Cassandra!" he commanded, his voice as hard as he'd ever heard it. "Stop!"


He scrambled up the stairs and wrapped his hand around one of her ankles before she could climb another step. She struggled to pull free, but he was determined and wouldn't let go. He simply grabbed her other leg too. He yanked her back toward him, and she lost her footing. Connor quickly wrapped his arms around her stomach and chest and braced her
fall, covering her from behind.

The feel of her supple body sprawled out on the stairs beneath him was heaven, as if it was meant to be there. His cock immediately hardened to life and pressed against his jeans, seeking its counterpoint where it was nestled right beneath his groin. He moaned as he inhaled her fresh fragrance, one that, when he breathed it in, seemed to clean him, too. She'd washed up before changing into her sweats and T-shirt, but all his body wanted to do was mate with her and cover her with his scent again. It was sexual need at its most powerful, and the demon within struggled to show itself once again.

"Cassandra." Connor held Cassie to him as she pushed against the restraints of his arms. "Don't fight. Listen to me. Please."

Cassie covered her face with both of her hands and dropped her forehead to the stair just above her face.

"Please," she begged, her voice muffled by her hands. "I don't want to be lied to anymore. Just let me go."

"There are no lies between us, I swear it." Connor struggled against a terrible urge to take Cassandra again. "I have never lied to you about us. Never."

She turned her head to the side then, and Connor was able to see the tears still filming her eyes. The sight of it rocked his very foundation and surged in him a need to do whatever it would take to make her believe the truth.

"Please." Now it was his turn to beg. He reached up and wiped the wetness from her cheek. The sheen of her tears, and the fact that he'd been the one to put it there, tore at his very soul.
"Nothing between us has ever been a falsehood. Our friendship is real and true. You must believe me."

Her body heaved beneath him, and he knew she struggled to contain her silent crying.

"I used to believe every word you ever spoke to me." The corner of Cassie's mouth seemed to turn up a little bit at that, and Connor's chest expanded with renewed hope. "Even when you were teasing me, and Caleb and Cain told me not to be so blindly devoted, I believed that your fibs were a special bond between the two of us."

"They were. They are. Nobody brings out that part of me as you do. It is special. You draw out many sides of me that nobody else can, Cassandra. The demon exists, yes, and I never wanted you to know about him, but the rest of what we share, none of that is a lie."

Her eyes slid closed, and without that life shining through her green gaze at him, his world became dark again.

"I can't believe you," she whispered. She suddenly began to struggle to get away again. "I don't know how. You lied to me about such an important part of yourself that I don't know what is
real about you anymore. Without trust and security between us, we don't have anything."

That triggered the desperation living within Connor as nothing else could. He would not accept defeat over the only thing he'd ever wanted in his life.

"We have nothing between us anymore, you say?" He reached down between their bodies and pushed the elastic waistband of her sweats down over the smooth globes of her ass, just enough to expose her to his touch. He slid his blunt finger between the seam, making her gasp and buck up against him. He pushed further between her thighs until he fingered the moist plumpness of her folds. "I would say the fact that you are soaking wet means that we have something between us. Something that your body cannot deny, even if your head wants to." He pushed into her pussy then, all the way to the second knuckle, and she flooded for him even more. "Yes, we have something between us, my Cassandra. Something that will not be denied."

She gasped and worked her body against his buried finger. "You want to fuck me again?"

"Yes," he confessed, the word almost a sacrament. He added another finger, stretching her snug, damp channel as he mimicked the sex act that he wanted to do with her until neither one of them could walk. "I ache for you. I am so hard that it hurts."

"Then do it." She planted her elbows on one step and her head on another, and thrust her ass in the air as best she could with her sweatpants bunched at her thighs trapping her legs almost completely together. "Do it, Connor. Fuck me. You'll like it. I'll like it, but it won't change anything."

"Yes…" He unzipped his jeans and released his raging cock. "…it will." He spread her open and pushed his cock inside, sliding through her tight heat inch by slow, desperate inch, stretching her in almost immeasurable increments, making her feel it all until he was encased by the fist of her pussy all the way to the root.

She whimpered beneath him, but rolled her hips back against him in the smallest circle, so he knew she loved having him back inside her body again. He rested his lips against the shell of her ear and started bombarding her with his soul.

"We are not a lie, Cassandra." He curled his hands around the soft flesh of her hips and held her in place while he took her body with exquisitely tender thrusts. "I don't care if you believe nothing else, but you will believe that I cherish every moment I've ever had in your presence. Please." He choked on the word as a flood of fear overwhelmed him. He bit at her ear and slid his tongue inside, needing to mate with her body in every way that he could. "Please, say that
you believe me."

She reached back and touched his face, and he almost spilled himself right on the spot. "I want to," she whispered brokenly. She worked her hips back against his cock in jerky spurts, her motions hampered, as were his. "God, how I want to."

"Then do," he pleaded. "Please…" Words fell away as Cassandra's cunt squeezed Connor's dick with agonizing tightness, milking at his length in a way that begged for a faster, deeper penetration that he fought to suppress. The demon wanted out; he couldn't be held back in the throes of complete sexual conquest.

"No." Connor cursed as this twin who was not a twin, but rather a part of himself, demanded freedom. "Not right now. Please."

He gritted his teeth as the need to possess took over, overpowering his will to deny once again, as it always did. He did not know what insanity had taken hold of him and made him think he would be able to hide this part of himself from Cassandra throughout the length of a marriage. He did not know what kind of fanciful dreaming had allowed him to imagine that he could control the demon when they were so closely linked together in every way.

Sweat soaked Connor's shirt as his spine stretched the flesh on his back and pushed the demon body out from within. A mountain of shifting cartilage took over his face, and his horns burst through the top of his skull at the same time, outing him as a demon once again. He barely
noted the burning hot pain searing through his body that was a natural part of the shift, as fear of Cassandra's revulsion took over his mind.

The demon emerged quickly and demanded control. Cassie jerked beneath him and clutched the step above her, crying out as his cock dug deep into her tight pussy, jamming her tender flesh into the stairs. Connor fisted her hair and tugged her head back, torturing himself when he saw a flash of panic and fear darken her eyes. The demon frightened her, he could tell, but even with that, he couldn't stop.

He smoothed a trembling hand down her hair. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry," he whispered against her temple as his pace picked up in accordance with his new body's needs. ...
