BLURB: Picking up where BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON left off, A TASTE OF WINTER is the second book in a romantic paranormal fantasy trilogy, set in alternate history medieval times. It follows the life of young Moira, a half fae noblewoman who fell in love with her shape-shifter guard and ran away from her ancestral home. 
Traveling the country, searching for a safe place to stay, the two of them soon realize that life is not as kind to them as they might have hoped. They feel the sting of prejudice and bigotry in each town they visit, and the reality of poverty and winter begin to erode Moira and Owain's blossoming love.
In the castle they left behind, darker plans are afoot. The fae spy Brody is slowly taking over, and he has no love for humans. He needs to be stopped before he can seize power and trigger another war between the races. But Moira and Owain are long gone, and Brody always seems two steps ahead.

Review: Moira and Owain are still trying to learn to live outside the castle and they run into a lot of prejudice people. They call Moira a wolf whore and it makes it hard for Owain to find work. Feeling like he has let her down, he feels like he has no choice but to rob criminals only to learn those criminals have plans of their own. They attack and attempt to kill Owain with plans to do Moira next. Moira finds them and calls to Owain's wolf inside him to take over and save them both. Afterwards Owain is very hurt and unable to protect Moira. Moira's fae mother senses she is not well and seeks her out. Years ago she was forced to have her second born child raised by the human nobleman to save her from her fae people. Her first born child was tortured and became a shell of the child she use to be and she didnt want to fail another child. Now she will sacrifice herself for her daughter by turning herself into her fae people in hopes they will leave her daughter and her love alone.
