About the Author

Sunny is a former physician and the wife of novelist Da Chen. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

A family practice physician and Vassar graduate, I was finally pushed into picking up my pen by the success of the rest of my family. Much to my amazement, I found that, by golly, I actually could write a book. And that it was much more fun than being a doctor. As an author, I have appeared on Geraldo at Large and CNBC.

When I'm not busy reading and writing, I'm editing my husband's books, New York Times bestselling author Da Chen, and being a happy stage mom for my young actor son, Michael Chen.

Mona Lisa's story continues in March 2011 with MONA LISA ECLIPSING. For contests, excerpts, and more information please visit my website at www.sunnyauthor.com.

Mona Lisa Eclipsing by Sunny
Paranormal Romance -April 5th, 2011
4 stars

Mona Lisa Eclipsing, like all of Sunny's books are a non-stop thrill ride. This story is full of dark, lush fantasy and huge changes for the heroine.

As a child of the Moon (Monere), Mona Lisa has finally begun to adjust to her life as one of the rare Monere Queens. She shoulders a great responsibility to the other Monere that depend upon her. Partially human, she never realized her Monere heritage until six months ago. She is coming to grips with special abilities and realizing her full power as a Monere.

Recently, she rejected her lover Dante. Dante is a powerful warrior who betrayed Mona Lisa in a past life. But Mona Lisa has decided to forgive him and wants him back. She and some of her elite men discover Dante is in Cozumel and they plan to retrieve him. But their mission goes wrong and Mona Lisa is injured and captured! When she wakes up she has no memory of her past and is easily duped into believing the charismatic and attractive stranger named Roberto. Roberto is actually a drug lord and is unaware of his Monere heritage. (As a Monere they are not physically attracted to humans.) Mona Lisa is the only female Monere he has ever met and is captivated by his attraction to her. As a result, he is determined to keep her. Unfortunately, her memory loss leads her to believe his lies and also results in hurting the other men in her past who love her. Will Mona Lisa regain her memory? Will she and her other lovers be able to reconcile?

This book was an exhilarating read. I love this author's vivid imagination as she seamlessly change scenery and adds plot twists that keep it in high gear.

I agree with the reviewers that say this book is not as good as the others in plot or character development. In fact I think that the only reason for this book was to end the series. Again, I agree with another reviewer that it was not ended very well. I wish I would have gotten it from the library. Sunny should have just given us a free ebook novella of the last part of this book.

Format: Paperback
After a 2-year wait for the next book in the series (during which I almost died from anxiety and despair from thinking maybe Sunny had given up on Mona Lisa and intended on continuing only with Lucinda's books), Mona Lisa Eclipsing came to me like a blow in the head.

I was happy and apprehensive to know that Dante would return... then I started reading.

At the beggining the book made me writhe with impatience over the difficulty of finding Dante and then having to go through Mona Lisa's (very painful) memory loss. We were introduced to new characters, such as jaguar-shifter/Mixed Blood/drug dealer, Roberto, and other new enemies, such as the wild Monère controlled by Mona Sierra.

The sex scenes were very few, if compared to the previous books, proving that Sunny tried her best to make up for lost time with real innovations in the story. And that she did.
Mona Lisa had the incentive of the Mother Queen to spread out the knowledge of the Monère race to humans, after a televised accident with a rogue male warrior. With the help of press and the apparent "understanding" of the autorities, she accomplished it.

Now we can only patiently wait for the next volumes to see the actual response of the other Queens, Mixed Bloods and Rogues around the world, (which promises to be so very interesting, not to mention challenging), and hope that our brilliant and beloved author Sunny doesn't make us suffer so much (again) while we do so.

I really like the writer, the story, the characters, the direction it's going, the surprises the writer manages to throw at us while making it still hang together coherently. Steamy scenes feel like a real part of the story, not just something thrown in to add sex. Sunny manages to make the emotional attachments feel real.

All that said, this book felt more like two separate, shorter, story arcs that were stuck in the same book instead of a single, book-length story arc. Either short arc could have made a full book with some fleshing out (a lot more for the second arc than the first), and it would have made for a much tighter addition to her work. Because she condensed so much into a single book, the ending feels extremely abrupt.

All in all, though, the good, bad, and ugly (a few horrendous editing misses) still add up to a darn fine read. Just watch out for that last page. There's a wall where it shouldn't be.

*Contains MINOR Spoilers for the previous books in the series.

It had a been a long while since I read the last Monere book and even though I was really looking forward to Mona Lisa Eclipsing, I had no idea how much I missed this world until I finally got to read it. When I did though, I got on such a wild ride with Mona Lisa and her men, that I didn't want it to end!

As with every book in the Monere series a LOT happens in Mona Lisa Eclipsing and what is described on the blurb is nothing but the tip of the iceberg. I'll do my best to not spoil anything.

Mona Lisa Eclipsing starts off not long after the events in Mona Lisa Darkening and it has been 6 months since Mona Lisa went from being a nurse in Manhattan that believed something was very wrong with her, to being a powerful Queen of the Monere with a lot of friends and at least 5 men she loves and can call her own.

Mona Lisa is part of the Monere, Children of The Moon, a race descendant to aliens that once came to earth from the Moon and have been living amongst human for longer than time has been counted. Her mixed blood has not stopped her from having that something extra that marks her as a Monere Queen and ever since her life changed, she has been building her new life and reign the best way she can.

In Mona Lisa Craving {Book #5 in the series}, we met Dante, who is the warrior son of a healer, cursed by the high priestess to endure a never-ending cycle of life and death, born and reborn into an ever-diminishing bloodline. Against all odds he and Mona Lisa fell in love, but after a series of awful events, Mona Lisa ended up sending Dante away.
