Under the Moon (Goddesses Rising #1) by Natalie J. Damschroder

The Book
Release Date: 6 December 2011

Their power gives them strength...and makes them targets.

Quinn Caldwell is the epitome of a modern goddess. Her power source is the moon, her abilities restricted only by physical resources and lunar phase. She runs a consulting business and her father's bar, serves on the board of the ancient Society for Goddess Education and Defense, and yearns for Nick Jarrett, professional goddess protector and the soul mate she can never have.

But someone has developed the rare and difficult ability to drain a goddess of her powers, and Quinn is a target. With the world thinking Nick has gone rogue (whatever that means) and that Quinn is influenced by "family ties" she didn't know she had, keeping themselves safe while working to find the enemy proves harder each day.

But not as hard as denying their hearts...

My Opinion  5 STARS
***May contain Spoilers***
This is a very steamy book (non erotic) that changes up what you think of Goddesses, as Gods not not exist.

Quinn is a Goddess who owns a bar and is only powerful around the full moon, otherwise she is as weak as a human.  All Goddesses use their powers to help humans from finding lost keys and healing wounds but the energy has to be replaced and its sex based.

Sam has an assistant Sam who for the last six years has been meeting her admin and re-charging needs, but for the last twelve weeks after realising that he wants more and not given in to her bodies needs.

Nick is her protector and has been since she came into her powers at age 21.  He is the man that she has always wanted and never been able to have.

When there are rumours of a leech it is Quinn and her two guys that investigate and family secrets come out of the woodwork.

There is not too much of a love triangle as you can see where things are going and the ending is both explosive and brilliant.  I am really looking forward to reading book two.
