Moira Rogers has created an alternate American Wild West, one with vampires, and ghouls and men created to combat the evil caused by them. It is not a gentle world, and the people she populates it with have to take risks to live.

Satira wishes to rescue her mentor, Nathaniel, from the evil vampire who has taken him for his skills at creating weapons. The Guild has sent Wilder Harding on the assignment, and Satira is determined to go along.

Wilder is a bloodhound, created by the Guild to hunt and destroy vampires in the American frontier. He considers Satira's presence on this mission as a distraction, and warns her of what she could face if she goes along. Satira knows she is the only one concerned with Nathaniel's well being, and as his apprentice, she has knowledge that could make the difference between success and failure. Satira was raised in the household of a bloodhound, so she is well aware of the effects that the new moon and full moon will have on Wilder, and a part of her wants his passion.

As they travel together, Wilder gains a grudging respect for Satira's determination and courage, and soon come to care for her more than he thought possible. Can these two work together to rescue Nathaniel from the evil vampire? Can Satira prove her worth, as a woman and as an inventor? Can Wilder claim Satira, and take her as his mate?

I enjoyed the trip with Satira and Wilder, and liked watching the learning experience they both went through. The characters in this are not like any I have read, and it was a fresh, new read.

Satira is a smart and sassy woman, and her talent for creating weapons is a definite plus on this mission. I loved watching her smart mouth Wilder at every turn, and I also completely enjoyed watching her slowly fall for him without realizing it. Her courage when she accepted him in his bloodhound phase was wonderful.

Wilder is a wonderful character. He is a strong, sexy and handsome man, but, as a bloodhound, he is much more. There is a leashed violence in him, and he is determined to protect Satira from that side of him. It was wonderful to watch him slowly fall under her spell, one she never realized she was weaving. I liked his honesty, his refusal to candy coat things just because Satira was a female.

I enjoyed watching these two 'do the dance' and fight the attraction building between them. I just knew that, when they finally gave in, the passion would explode off the page, and it was hot beyond belief. I also like the idea that Satira found out that some of her beliefs about bloodhounds were not the truth, and that there was hope for a fantastic life with her man. I look forward to much more in this world, and hope to see many more adventures in this Wild West of Moira Rogers' creation.

Fun Steampunk Paranormal Romance

The first in Roger's Bloodhounds series is fast, sexy, and fun. Great worldbuilding and intriguing characters. My only complaint is that Wilder and Satira fell in love just a tad too quickly; it was a matter of only a few days.

    3.5 Stars

    A confusing start to an interesting version of a vampire tale and what I suppose are some kind of weres but are called Hounds instead. They hunt the vampires in the all classic battle between weres and vampires. Wilder and Satira, love that name, are two very interesting characters who seem to compliment each other quite nicely. I liked Wilder because while he started off as kind of a jackass towards Satira, he did give her the acknowledgement she deserved for her skills, plus the chemistry between them was pretty hot. I was expecting more of an explanation about the Guild and how people actually become Hounds, that part was very confusing and there was no explanation for it.

    Review:

    ...

    A couple of questions you may have. What is The Guild and what is a Bloodhound? The best way I can describe The Guild is that they are a type of society that are enemies of vampires. They act only in their best interests and take whatever steps necessary to eradicate the vampire population. Enter the Bloodhounds. Once men, now werewolves of sorts. These powerful beings typically work for The Guild as vampire hunters. I say werewolves, but they are not actually a werewolf per say. More like a man with superhuman strength. With a full moon he can transform into what could be called a werewolf, but with the new moon his sexual appetite peaks, making him insatiable and in need of someone who can handle his lusty needs.

    ...

    While I have described the gist of this book, I don’t feel that I have adequately covered everything that is encompassed within. I was enthralled throughout the entire story. It is a novella so is a fairly quick read, but really packs a punch. It starts off with a bang and ends with another, never faltering in between. The world built by Moira Rogers grasps the reader from the beginning and continues to suck you in. Many aspects were familiar to me such as vampires and the old west, but this world is nothing if not a very different version of everything I thought I knew. For example, ghouls and Bloodhounds, paired with an “alternate” western setting. I truly enjoyed the different take this author had on both the familiar and the unversed. My only problem was that there was so much information that I felt I could have used a bit more explanation. The Guild, for example, I really do not have a clear grasp on. Exactly who they are, where they came from, and so on. And the ghouls ~ are they zombies or something different and how did they come to be? This story could have easily been a full length novel had everything been drawn out and explained a bit more thoroughly.

    That said, Satira and Wilder were a lot of fun getting to know. Their relationship begins with almost playful banter that quickly evolves into double entendres that leave no doubt as to the meaning behind the words. Satira is both witty and brutally honest in expressing what she wants while Wilder is gruff and crude, with a protective streak and caring side hidden just below the dangerous exterior. And oh my goodness! The sex was crazy hot! Like CRAZY hot! For those of you who like your stories somewhat familiar as far as components, but outside the box as far as imagination, Moira Rogers is an author you will want to check out. This was my first book by this talented author and it will definitely NOT be the last!

    A step past romance

    It has adult content. I would definitely call it a step past regular romance. But, i will say that I liked it. I dont ususally read short novels and I dont like werewolves, but the crossover genres in this were fun and interesting. The author could flesh out the world more and give it backstory.
