    I'd call this a very weak three star book There's an intriguing premise here but none of the elements are fleshed out enough to be engrossing All the components romance world building action plot are almost skimmed over making them feel perfunctory The hero and heroine meet and spend a few days on horses together which the author does not actually write out for us to see then suddenly they're consumed by passion and hooking up The world building names the components of her steampunk world but then doesn't go into details leaving it just another Our Vampires Are Different paranormal romance Then the action plot the conflict that sends our heroine off into the dangerous wasteland with a scary bloodhound resolves in a anticlimactic pfft of a weak fight scene No sense of unbeatable odds no dazzling maneuvers no dramatic last ditch efforts Just a werewolf bloodhound turning into a wolf beast and mowing baddies down handily before the heroine tosses off an attack that easily vanuishes the villain with no risk to herselfyawn

    I was disappointed in this; I'd really hoped to like it More Western than steampunk the whole thing was confusing and disjointed It's like the authors were trying to make it smutty look the heroine was raised in a brothel and the hero has some sexual kink without being too smutty but she's not a prostitute herself even though she is experienced and the hero's sexual kink is I really have no idea There are hints that it might be bondage or domination but it's all allusion and nothing is shown In other areas of the story the hero and heroine suffer from the same dangerous but not too much it almost felt gimmicky to me And the torture scene? I really don't get that I don't like reading about torture and I certainly don't find it heroic but 1 how is this mindless ghoul susceptible to torture in the first place and 2 his succinct and coherent answers seem unlikelyOverall though horses and vampires aside this is supposed to be a romance I kind of get why Satira falls for Wilder she's suddenly alone without financial or emotional support in a world where society does not really allow women to be self sustaining and this big strong guy who kind of reminds her of her step dad shows up I can see why she'd want to hook her star to his wagon But I don't get why Wilder reciprocates and it's not explained in the story Yes they have lots of sex and seem to enjoy it uite a bit so what? From what I can tell Wilder has had lots of sex and enjoyed it uite a bit for years Why settle down with Satira? I will admit the ending was sweet and I did enjoy it but I didn't feel satisfied by it because it didn't feel like the characters had earned it

    I really enjoyed this fascinating book from the very beginning It is a really interesting mixture of a number of different genres with none of them really dominating but just jumbled altogether to come up with something which seems fresh but comfortingly familiar at the same timeThere's Western elements I could visualize the setting somewhere near Arches in Utah there's paranormal the hero is a bloodhound and there are vampires and ghouls running around there's steampunk the gadgets and tools and clever Victorian style engineering and there's romance pretty steamy but not icky There is also fruity language which I actually really enjoyed it was scattered around and I thought was actually well used for emphasis but not so much that you roll your eyes at the author's limited vocabularyThe plot was simple but well executed and the world building was limited but fit the needs of the story so it all made for a really enjoyable read for me It's also just as long as the story needs to be rather than trying to fit a certain word count for the sake of it which really really annoys meSo yes I'll definitely be checking out the next one in the series even though this was my first book by these authorsAnd will you check out that amazing cover? Oooh shivers up the spine4 stars

    Originally posted at uote “I like my women enthusiastic”“It’s a wonder you can find any unless you take care not to speak first”Satira needs someone to assist her in rescuing her mentor Nathanial What she gets is Wilder A devastatingly sexy bloodhound created by the Guild to hunt and destroy vampires As Satira and Wilder make their way to Deadtown the attraction between them sparks and blazes out of control But Wilder is a dangerous man And a real killer in his true form If he succumbs to the passion between Satira and him during the full moon then the beast will claim her no matter what Even at the expense of the man who they are trying to saveI’m a huge fan of steampunk and when Moira Rogers let me know they were writing a steampunk story I was fully prepared to stalk them until they let me have it Luckily for both of us they gave in gracefully A novella at 103 pages The writing team of Moira Rogers packs in an incredible smexy action packed story that will have you glued to your e reader An enchanting mix of old and new sets the stage as we engage with our two fascinating protagonists Satira and WilderSatira is a beautiful intelligent girl who disguises her femininity with the trappings of man In her world there is only one thing a woman can do and that is prostitute herself But she wants so she apprentices herself to a genius inventor He gives her a safe place a live a kind hand and a goal for her life He is all she has and when he goes missing she not only fears for him but for what will happen to her if he isn’t found alive I really like how Satira is not the fainting indecisive heroine She’s had a hard life but she has risen above it She’s also very pragmatic and that struck a cord with me She doesn’t hide from Wilder what she feels and gives voice to it oftenWilder is a smoldering mixture of sex and gallantry all wrapped up in a rough and ready attitude He works for the Guild and his job is to kill vampires When he sets eyes on Satira he only sees a troublesome girl but she soon proves to him that she is then able to handle her own on their mission Being a Bloodhound a werewolf he is always careful to only associate with those who can handle him during the full moon because when the beast unleashes it answers to no one This vulnerability softens Wilder and endears you to him While he comes off a bit gruff and untamed he never never goes completely Alpha on Satira Her opinion matters to him and it shows dreamy sighThe dialogue between them is humorous and sensual at the same time They play off each other well and the flow between them is a delight to readThe chemistry is apparent from the beginning and a steady undercurrent flows under their words priming you for when they will go to the next level And woooooweeeeeee when they hit that next level watch out SizzlingThe secondary characters are personable and interesting enough all on their own What I really love about the Moira Rogers books is no character is used just as filling Each one is imbibed with enough vitality that you want then to have their own story And thankfully these authors come through for usThe plot is solid with plenty of suspense smexy time and action to keep you satisfied I would have liked to have seen a bit interaction with the villain; a back story perhaps to how this all came about All and all another brilliant read by the ladies of Moira Rogers that left me wanting to read about these sexy Bloodhounds and the women who are their destinyRating B

    I picked this up because it was part of the Smart Bitches book club for May I wasn't too sure what to expect especially after reading that it was a steampunkeroticaparanormalwestern romance I mean really WTF?But that's the great thing about book clubs They get you to read something you might not pick up on your own For my part I enjoyed nearly every page of this crazy mix book The authors write well together mixing the genres brilliantly It could so easily have felt like a disjointed story but there was a convincing reason for the way it all worked together My only criticisms would be that Satira's character was a mite needy emotionally though physically she was as kick ass as I usually like and the crude language was a little bit surprising in the uasi historical contextThe story is set in the Old West or something very much like it where women have limited options in career choices We meet Satira an apprentice inventor enter steampunk who accompanies Wilder a bloodhound enter paranormal to rescue her friend and mentor from the clutches of evil vampires Bloodhounds have been made specifically to kill vampires and on the full moon go into some sort of voilence frenzy and on the new moon they go into some sort of fanning myself as I type sex frenzy for days enter eroticaThe two main characters seem to have an instant understanding and mutual attraction Satira is uite open from very early on in their acuaintance in letting Wilder know she would not be averse to sharing his bed He thinks she's just been amenable so he'll try harder to rescue her mentor she thinks he doesn't really want her and high jinks entailOverall this was a fun amusing read with a great steam factor And I don't mean the punk variety

    uickie Review For full review please visitThe RomanceaholicI admit it isn’t often that I buy a story on release day With very few exceptions I typically wait a week or two until I have a chance to read some reviews from people who share my tastes in stories before I plunk down any of my hard earned money However I am a Moira Rogers fangirl and when I found out she had a new story that combined vampires werewolves of a sort western romance and steampunk I couldn’t get over to uickly enough Add to that the fact that it’s less than a Starbucks Latte and I was immediately soldIt should be noted that there was prolific use of the “c” word for those readers who can’t stand its usage as well as an occasional foray into some back door loving Despite the language I don’t feel that this ualified as erotica however and would instead call it an “incredibly steamy romance” Steampunk fans should also be aware that those elements were few and far between Elevators various weaponry and steam carriages seemed to pretty much be the extent of the Steampunk elements with nary an airship or pair of welding goggles to be seen The inventions that were present however were uite important and I couldn’t help but get flashes in my head of the movie Wild Wild West on occasionOverall I adored it I uite literally couldn’t put it down and cannot wait for the continuation of the seriesA very solid 455 Stars

    This was a hit and miss for me Some of the reason for the miss I can't uite put my finger on other than to say I felt disconnected most of the time Other issues were the lack of transitioning the reader into the worldbuilding It was like I was diving into the middle of a book or series and there was an assumption that the reader would just know things I did grasp pieces of the world through things dropped here and there steampunk elements vampires historical period on frontier magic to turn men into half beasts etc but it was so spotty on the details that it was frustrating Then most tedious is the heroine's oversexed nature that came on too strong right at the get go making the hound seem tame in comparison The instalust might not have been so bad but she went from lust to 'can't live without him' in a blink I get it that she grew up with a hound and took hounds to her bed so she didn't need to adjust to his nature but still it all went by in a blur and I couldn't keep up ButI didn't hate the story either because I liked the tension between the two characters excitement of the uest hero the wild west steampunk paranormal creative world

    I had forgotten how uncomplicated and yet so utterly intricate a spell the storytelling of Moira Rogers casts when one is lost in reading a book written by these talented ladiesThis is a series that has been on the back burner for me wanting to read it for a few years book one merely whetted my curiosity and appetite for continuing it someday
