Book Description

Welcome to the mystical town of Beaver Cove, Arkansas where country ghosts offer homey advice and the moon makes lovers of total strangers!

Maddie Harris left Boston in humiliation. She hopes the job as assistant principal in a small Arkansas town will keep her too busy to notice the hole where her heart used to be. Phil Wilcox, divorced former NFL star, returns to his hometown as the new football coach. He hopes to repair the tattered relationship with his eleven-year-old daughter, despite his thorny ex-wife. Maddie is neat and color coordinated; Phil takes "casual" to its limits. Neither is seeking romance, but a mischievous moon and a friendly spirit have other ideas.

"Round Table Review" says "Devil Moon is a lovely romance full of whimsy, comedy and bittersweet twists."


Editorial Reviews

Review

Taylor has crafted a fast-paced story... Along with the main love story, she adds drama, with a kidnapping and drug subplot, and a touch of the paranormal. Drama, romance and humor combine to make Devil Moon plain fun.
--Romantic Times


I loved this book.  It made me laugh and cry.  The characters are wonderful, the writing is compelling and witty, the plot-twists are unexpected, and the love story is both steamy and sweet. 
--Round Table Reviews--Beverly Forehand

You won't get away from this read without chuckling...The secondary characters were absolutely outstanding.  All-in-all, a delightful story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and touching...don't pass this one up. January 30, 2005
Format:Paperback
Maddie Harris has had it with men. When she moves into her Grandmother's house in Beaver Cove, Arkansas, she is determined to lead an uneventful and orderly life as the local high school's assistant principal. Of course it's hard to consider your life normal when you not only talk to your dead grandmother, but can also see her. Oh, and let's not forget the one night of crazy sex, under the full moon, down by the lake with a late-night fisherman...

Ex-football star, Phil Wilcox, is working on redemption. He wasn't much of a husband in the old days and even less of a father, but he wants to re-connect with his 11 year-old daughter, Melissa. Three years sober, Phil is ready to jump through any hoop to have Melissa call him Daddy again. Even if that means being civil to his money-hungry, manipulative ex-wife AND building the first winning football season Beaver Cove has seen in many years.

Maddie and Phil...polar opposites. He knows nothing about fashion, while she color coordinates everything. She has a place for every single possession and his idea of `order' is getting takeout at the Taco Bueno. And if they could just stop picking at each other, maybe they'd find they have something in common...like a blissful night spent under that ol' devil moon.

Dana Taylor has crafted a witty ride for readers with That Devil Moon. You won't get away from this read without chuckling...whether it's from Phil's wicked sense of humor, his daughter's little, unknown facts or the crazy antics that happen in Beaver Cove. The momentum fell flat a few times and it felt as though there were two endings, but the need to find out if Phil and Maddie can make it as a couple, pushes you onward. While couched in humor, Ms.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not ready for shelves July 17, 2011
By Zeph
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Assistant Principal Maddie Harris is a control freak. But on one very strange night - orchestrated by a Devil Moon - she throws control out the window and has a one night stand with a complete stranger. This stranger, former NFL player Phil Wilcox, is not going away. Though these lovebirds don't recognize one another from their one night stand, sparks still fly when they bump (literally) into each other and soon they form a relationship.

Devil Moon had the makings of a 5-star book but it just didn't live up to the beginning. Phil was a little too self-pitying. Although a great hero, he couldn't get over his past mistakes as a drunk and a bad husband/father. I understand why he felt this way considering no one in the book seemed to idolize him or mention his football accomplishments. No footballs fans in the South is pretty unrealistic. Anyway, Phil kept assuming Maddie had realized she deserved better than him and run away. He couldn't have been more wrong. Maddie was a loving and loveable character. Her only flaw was how she could act quite irrationally at times. Lastly, the two climaxes of this book could have been combined to make something so much better.

The ending was pretty adorable but in the end I was still dissapointed. It's obvious that Dana Taylor has a lot of talent, I can't wait to see if her next book showcases it better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved The Characters July 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Main characters Maddie and Phil were genuine and likable. All of the characters were well-drawn and interesting. Of course, Maddie and Phil clashed at first. She thought he was overbearing and he thought she was stuck up and this made for some funny moments. But despite themselves the two are drawn together. Maddie's gay friend Randy was an especially funny character and Phil's daughter Melissa was sweet and fun. She added a lot to the way Phil was pictured and father and daughter had some great scenes together.

I especially liked the southern flavor of this book and the supernatural elements, which were not overdone, but added so much to the story. The writing is fast-paced and witty. Devil Moon is a thoroughly enjoyable read from a talented author.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a great read... May 5, 2005
Format:Paperback
Small town Americana comes alive in this magical story, grounded in the reality of some very likeable but quirky characters. Maddie and Phil exorcise their demons under the glow of a full moon hanging over Beaver Cove, Arkansas. This author explores some very serious realities even with a liberal dose of good natured humor. I love her work...and can't wait for her next book.

Try her first book - Ain't Love Grand.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hopelessly silly July 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be fair, if you want a guilty, brainless quickie, this might actually be perfect. But don't look for anything more than that.

Everything from the premise to the conclusion is ridiculous. Wither her complete inability to handle her own emotions, the leading lady makes any self-respecting woman cringe; the leading man, meanwhile, is somehow both unrealistically perfect and wildly irritating. Many of their choices (not to mention the setup -- a hot encounter during which they somehow manage not to see each other's faces) make zero sense.

Oh, and the whole hallucinatory ghost bit just doesn't fit the tone of the story. At all. This story can't decide what genre it wants to be.

Again, if you want something quick and light, this might fit the bill. Didn't work for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars emotional drama
An emotional roller coaster. The things I "liked" were the Granny and Mystic Moon angles. And the flirty character interaction.

More About the Author

Dana Taylor writes books with a mystical touch. Born and raised in California, she attended the University of Redlands and received her B.A. with a theatre major. Her senior year sent her to Oklahoma for a theatre internship, which resulted in a whirlwind courtship and a long marriage. Her two romantic comedies, AIN'T LOVE GRAND? and DEVIL MOON: A MYSTIC ROMANCE (A Movers and Shakers List Title) are set in America's heartland. Opposites attract, loveable characters, and a good dose of laughter. Through the years, she and her husband raised two daughters and numerous animals, with varying results. A dog ate a hamster and the iguana escaped a homemade cage. One rabbit proved it could consume a remote with no ill effects (except to the remote.)The daughters turned out fine.

Her imagination led her to writing romantic adventures, also with a good dose of comedy. ROYAL REBEL began as a Romance Writer's of America contest piece and grew into a full blown, spirited twist on the Robin Hood tale. PROUD HEART (summer 2014) centers on Rosa Dominguez, a Hispanic heroine inspired by Dana's grandmother. After losing her family to violence in Mexico, Rosa courageously joins the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889. The CHARMIN' WARRIOR, hero, Jaguar Jack, has a psychic bent that grew from Ms. Taylor's interest in paranormal and metaphysical matters.

Nowadays when she isn't writing, she is often giving Reiki energy healing treatments. Her interest began with the charismatic spiritual movement and led to the study of healing modalities. She is a Reiki Master in Southern California. Her non-fiction book EVER-FLOWING STREAMS: TAPPING INTO HEALING ENERGY chronicles her spiritual journey into alternative healing. She explores spirituality, energy healing, and wonder at her blog SupernalLiving.com.
And in all her spare time, she serves as President of the Board of the La Mirada Symphony Association.
