From the author of the groundbreaking yaoi (male homosexual romance) series -FAKE-, Until the Full Moon features a cast of vampires and werewolves, and in particular, a male half-vampire half-werewolf who by a fluke of genetics turns into a beautiful woman by the full moon-- and is subsequently betrothed to his childhood friend, who doesn't care whether he's a guy or girl.

Marlo is the child of a werewolf and a vampire and recently started changing during the full moon. Instead of turning into a wolf, as expected, he's changes gender. His parents enlist the help of an old family friend whose rakish son, David, had an innocent but more than friends type of relationship with Marlo when they were young. But it's been 10 years and Marlo wants to keep his "problem" from David. It's not long though before David sees first hand what is going on and is painfully attracted to the female form of Marlo. But he doesn't' seem to mind the male form all that much either. The parents of these two young men decide that a cure is unlikely decide they should marry. Enter Marlo's ex-girlfriend to stir up feelings of jealousy and tension and two old friends of David who cause a wee bit of trouble for him as well. After these issues are resolved the book steps back in time to a past version of Marlo & David which I guess is show that they've always belonged together? I don't know, it was all a little strange and not as cohesive as "Fake". Sadly, the relationship wasn't nearly as interesting as the one "Fake" either. Though David loves Marlo regardless of which form he's in, Marlo doesn't want David near him unless he's a girl which is only day a month. A bit disappointing overall.
