Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

Wilder Harding is a bloodhound, created by the Guild to hunt down and kill vampires on America’s frontier. His enhanced abilities come with a high price: on the full moon, he becomes capable of savagery beyond telling, while the new moon brings a sexual hunger that borders on madness.

Rescuing a weapons inventor from undead kidnappers is just another assignment, though one with an added complication—keeping his hands off the man’s pretty young apprentice, who insists on tagging along.

At odds with polite society, Satira’s only constant has been the aging weapons inventor who treats her like a daughter. She isn’t going to trust Wilder with Nathaniel’s life, not when the Guild might decide the old man isn’t worth saving. Besides, if there’s one thing she’s learned, it’s that brains are more important than brawn.

As the search stretches far longer than Wilder planned, he finds himself fighting against time. If Satira is still at his side when the new moon comes, nothing will stop him from claiming her. Worse, she seems all too willing. If their passion unlocks the beast inside, no one will be safe. Not even the man they’re fighting to save.

Warning: This book contains a crude, gun-slinging, vampire-hunting hero who howls at the full moon and a smart, stubborn heroine who invents mad-scientist weapons. Also included: wild frontier adventures, brothels, danger, betrayal and a good dose of wicked loving in an alternate Wild West.


Satira is going out of her mind with worry for her mentor, Nathaniel, who has been kidnapped by vampires. In walks Wilder. Assigned by the Guild to rescue the old weapons inventor, Satira demands to tag along. She is surprised when Wilder doesn't fight her on that issue. 

When it takes much longer than anticipated for this rescue mission, Wilder is concerned that if they don't find Nathaniel by the full moon, which is right around the corner, he will end up taking Satira, and not in a gentle way. Of course she doesn't seem all to concerned with the idea which only makes him all the more nervous.

Throw in another bloodhound, yummy sex, and adventure and you have what makes up a spectacular book. I am a fan of Moira Rogers' books so I was extremely excited when I won this book in a giveaway. *does silly touchdown dance* Other than the face that I love winning contest, I love winning books from authors I adore. I raced through this book with gusto and loved every minute of it. I loved the idea of bloodhounds hunting vampires. Yes I know that has been done before but it was different at the same time. The story is set in a world where the paranormal is known to society and not hidden from the world. I think that makes this story stand out for the better. Oh and let's not forget the smokin' hot scenes between the two main characters. I'm pretty sure I had one of those looks on my face while reading if you get my drift. *wink wink*

Seriously though, for those of you who have never read a Moira Rogers book before, you should definitely start. Like yesterday. It doesn't matter which one it is either. They are all spectacular! I definitely can't wait to read the next in this series. I'm glad you can't get arrested for stalking an author's page.


Loved this book! Of course any book I've read by Moira Rogers has me wanting more and more.

Yummy, yummy! *fans face*
