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…
Under The Moon is book one in the Goddesses Rising series by Natalie J. Damschroder. As many paranormal books as I have read, this is my first Goddess book so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was so pleasantly surprised.
For the most part, Goddesses are pretty normal, just like you and I. They... ...more
Goddesses among us well that definitely caught my attention, and I knew I just had to read more. Being a fan of all kinds of mythology, I thought that is what I would be reading about. I was pleasantly wrong and enjoyed this book tremendously.
What I found unique about it was the goddesses and how... ...more

‘Under the Moon’ is a terrific story, tight and well written, about a goddess, her assistant (and ex lover), her sexy protector and their efforts to stop a man who is on his way to steal Quinn’s power.
In the world of ‘Under the Moon’, goddesses live amongst us, using their power to help people, b... ...more
The plot was very interesting, when goddesses come to their powers at 21 they have a source of power be it flower water or rain or in Quinn's case the Moon. Suddenly two goddesses turn up drained of power, and her protector when the moon is new is coming to her weeks too early to protect her. Tog... ...more
I'm torn between a 4 star and 5 star so I'll go with a 4.5 rating overall. I very much enjoyed reading this and loved the characters, though I felt that there could have been just a little more development for that area. The concept of the Godesses was interesting, even more so since there wasn't... ...more

I was a bit apprehensive at reading this book at first but now I'm glad I did. The goddess concept is starting to trickle into literature now but it hasn't really taken off. I think it's such a hard thing to do correctly to turn it into a great read. However, I'm very happy I read this. It was su... ...more
I have to start out by saying that the cover of UNDER THE MOON does NOT in any way match the story. There is not one motorcycle/motorcycle rider in the whole book and I just don't get why they have someone on one on the cover. Makes no sense.
UNDER THE MOON was a page turner with some nice twist a... ...more
This is an urban fantasy romance novel with steamy, but not erotic scenes. The main character is Quinn Caldwell, a goddess who draws her power from the moon. This is great when the moon is full, but not so good when there's a new moon. It also cause her to be extremely needy sexually at certain t... ...more
***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... ...more

UNDER THE MOON was a very enjoyable read. Most of the story was borne out in action and dialog, which made the pace quick but informative, and served to keep my interest as a reader.
There's been a spate of novels about goddesses in the past 18 months, but I like the aspect of a power source (almo... ...more

When reading this book I was pulled in by the goddess mythology based story-line. I quickly was introduced to a sort of love triangle between the main character Quinn Caldwell, Sam her assistant, and Nick Jarrett her protector.

I received this book as a e-ARC from NetGalley.
I really loved this book! I became invested in the characters very quickly and when something huge (no spoilers) happens to one of the main characters fairly early on I simply refused to stop reading until I found out how it turned out!

Found this in a Barnes and Noble bargain bin and was pleasantly surprised. It had a unique set of concepts - goddesses, protectors, the leeching of powers - and interesting characters. It into some tiresome romance cliches (a love triangle between the guy who wants but can't have her and the guy... ...more
so when you are sick you can read at an alarming rate. ;-)
Under the Moon introduces the reader to the idea of goddesses living among us normal mortals. not goddesses as in Aphrodite or Hera, more like very talented witches with specific powers. it was an interesting and intriguing read. not life... ...more
Interesting and original book. I thought it was a bit weird that there were only goddesses as supernatural beings but it works pretty well.
I liked the complexity of the characters and there relationship. Nothing is really clear, leaving you wondering what is gonna happen and between who and who.... ...more
