    This is a first for me, as I have never read a wolf, fae story (

    This is a first for me, as I have never read a wolf, fae story (the heroine, Kiara comes from both bloodlines) and I was pleasantly surprised. Moira Keith has a strong writing voice, and her skills lured me into this wonderfully written paranormal romance.

    Devlin possesses all the characters traits of a hot, strong yet compassionate and loving hero, that we all love to read about in a romance.

    Devlin and Kiara's chemistry and sexual tension is palpable and sizzles off the pages. The mystery is intriguing, well paced with great secondary characters which made this book a definite page turner.

    While trying to solve a mystery together, Devlin and Kiara's attraction grows as the author has done an excellent job of showing this through excellent dialogue and allowing the reader to feel the same emotions the characters are going through.

    The premise and outcome are unpredictable and as a reader, I love to be challenged and not being able to figure out what will happen or how it will end. The element of suspense moves at an excellent pace, the character arcs well developed and the addition of a folklore premise all combined to make this story unique and sing for an awesome read.

    This is a paranormal romance that I highly recommend, even if you don't normally read paranormal, as Moira Keith is able to spin an excellent story, drawing you in right away and keeping you rooted to the book with her strong writing, the ability to weave mystery, fantasy, suspense and love into a book jam-packed with emotion and sensuality.

    Delicious book and I look forward to the next installment of the Blood and Moonlight Trilogy.

    This is my first time reading an urban fantasy and I loved it.

    This is my first time reading an urban fantasy and I loved it. I can visualize the story and really feel the emotion. The bond of friendship, love, and respect between Kiara and Reese is evident throughout the story. I can hardly wait for the second book in the trilogy.

    I just finished reading Blood And Moonlight. It is the first boo

    I just finished reading Blood And Moonlight. It is the first book in the Moonlight Trilogy written by Moira Keith. Wolves are turning up missing from a local pack in Vegas. It’s baffling the pack. They don’t know what to do or how to solve the mystery of why they are disappearing. They ask Kiara for help. Kiara is a half breed. She’s part fairy part wolf. Will she solve the mystery in time or will other wolves disappear? Is it too late or is there time?




    I really loved this book. It was amazing. It was intense and suspenseful. It was spicy and bold. It was everything you could love in a paranormal mystery. There was even a little bit of romance mixed in. I can’t wait to read the rest of this trilogy!




    I didn’t really see many problems at all with this book. I mean there were some typos here and there, but we all fall victim to typos now and then. Authors aren’t immune to this terrible thing we call typo. I kind of wish this would be made into a series instead of a trilogy. I can see it going far. This is just my opinion though.




    I fully recommend Blood And Moonlight. If you love paranormal books, you’ll love this book. It is a very unique mix of fairies and wolves. Vampires are mentioned, but there aren’t really any vampire characters. It’s a great read either way! Don’t take my word for it though! See for yourself what I mean!

    HELLOOOOO HAWT PIECE!!!! Boy I sure do love me some werewolves!

    HELLOOOOO HAWT PIECE!!!! Boy I sure do love me some werewolves! Especially hot ones! Hehehehe this book fascinated me. I am now very invested in this series because not only does it hold my attention, but it’s full of very fun characters and an extremely mysterious plot line and just downright good writing! I don’t know how else to say how much I enjoyed this book!




    So, we’ve got a mixed blood situation here. kiara is part Fae and part werewolf. She was raised by her Fae mother who is also a royal. However the Fae aren’t so happy about this mixed blood thing so lets just say she had a crappy life. Kiara also thinks her fathers been dead her whole life. Well she gets a big surprise to know her father is suddenly missing, but was alive, and currently holds the position of alpha in the pack. I won’t lie, this plot line had me sucked in, because I was dying to know what was gunna happen! And Kiara had a whole lot to learn about herself, her mixed blood, and a culture she’s part of but doesn’t understand.




    And then there’s Devlin…. Boy oh boy… DROOL!!!! He’s the typical HAWT male werewolf, who oozes alpha, exudes confidence and powers, and is pretty much a walking drool-endusing eye candy! Hello!!! I need one of those right now! Plus he’s got a sweet side when he’s trying to. He wants Kiara but promised to protect her and those things never go well together hahahaha I lurve him!! Devlin- welcome to my book boyfriend club!! You’re welcome anytime!!




    I also really enjoy the secondary characters!! Reese and Marcus, who are a couple, are Kiara’s Fae guards and also her best friends. After her mishap in Fae land, they follow her and devote their life protecting her. Marcus and Cian are Kiara’s unexpected and not necessarily welcomed werewolf guards. I especially like Marcus  I’m thinking I almost like everybody hahahaha




    I don’t wanna give too much away. I am extremely fond of this story, I can’t wait to get my grubby paws in book two, and I thought this was a fantastic story telling! Well done Ms Keith! I hope you let me know as soon as you have book 2 ready for me hahahaha yes I’m special and it’s just for me  LOL now go forth and get yourself this book- it’ll be worth it! 5 REALLY GOOD PAWS from me!

    LOVE this book. Great story, action and Suspense.

    I love this book! I can't wait for book two, hope it's not too long. Lol. This book was very different to most the paranormal books I read. It has something I had not read about before.
    Blood and Moonlight is the first book in the Moonlight Trilogy by Moira Keith. This story focuses on Kiara, half fae, half werewolf, and its an intriguing mix. There are many exciting twists and turns. Suspense, and many things you just do not see coming.

    It was brilliantly written. I liked the way it was written in first person from Kiara's point of view, but then would go to Devlin (who is super hot by the way) and would be in 3rd person with him. I really liked that. I seen that in another book a few times, and once I was used to it, I really liked it.
    Kiara is a really strong person. I really was able to connect with her, and felt what she felt. Some of the things she had to endure where violent, and she has shown us to be very strong.
    There is a lot of Celtic Mythology in this, and I enjoyed that. It's just not something you see as much of.

    Kiara also lives in the modern world, but this world knows of the supernaturals, the Fae, Werewolves, and there is mention of others too, but we do not see any in this story. So it's interesting in that area too.
    I will keep this as spoiler free as I can. We start with Kiara finding out that her werewolf father is possibly still alive, but missing. But she does not accept this right away, she wants proof. This is when she meets the handsome Devlin.
    She has 2 Fae guards, Reese, and Keenan. Reese is a great best friend to Kiara too, as is Keenen, he is like an older brother, protective and very capable.

    The pack wants Kiara's help in finding their leader Roarke who they tell her is her father. They believe her special abilities can help them. She has some unique magic of her own, and one of the abilities is to see and feel events that happened when touching the object or area. She is in danger too, as someone wants to stop her from finding the packs leader. Only a handful of people even know he is her father. Devlin is there to protect her along with her fae guards.
    I really loved the chemistry between Devlin and Kiara, here is a cute part with them:

    When I glanced up, Devlin was smiling at me. Great. Nothing like being caught in the middle of a drool fest.


    And here is another part:

    "I'm here on orders to ensure your safety."
    "How much safer can I be if you are right beside me?" The words left my mouth before the thought had even formed in my head. Goddess help me, I was anything but safe around this man. Physically safe, sure--he was an intimidating presence. A person I wouldn't want to run into on a moonless night. Emotional safety was another story entirely. I shook my head. "Sorry, I can't seem to keep my foot out of my mouth around you."


    I will stop there, that's just how it starts. We get some major action from there, intense suspense too. I was up late to finish this until past 4 am, seems that I keep doing this on great books like this.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys anything paranormal, or even romance if you don't mind some paranormal. It's pretty clean sexually, (it has one scene, but is done in a tasteful way) I would say New Adult category, 18 and up or so.

    5 out of 5 stars for me.

    I was provided a copy of this book as part of a book tour with Bewitching Book Tours for my honest review.

    Blood and Moonlight by Moira Keith The main character in Blood

    Blood and Moonlight by Moira Keith

    The main character in Blood and Moonlight is Kiara, she is half Fae and half wolf, and she has grown up hiding/ignoring the wolf side of her and keeping a lot of what she feels deep inside hidden away. Being ashamed of part of your self is not easy feat. Kiara’s is plagued by the death of her mother who was killed by wolves and Kiara cannot forget that, all Kiara wants is to find answers to who killed her mother. When Kiara meets Devlin McClure from the local pack he has come to ask her for her help. Of course Kiara cannot stand wolfs and it doesn’t matter that one of the missing pack members happens to be her father. At first Kiara does not offer to help and why should she help find father he left her and her mom alone a long time ago.

    Changing her mind Kiara and Devlin head out to solve the mystery of missing pack members and her father. Besides the mystery that unfolds so does the romance and tension between Devlin and Kiara. Kiara at first has every excuse why they should not allow anything to happen between herself and Devlin but he is irresistible and hot and smells so good. Kiara and Devlin do not have an easy road ahead of them and both being such strong independent people they can’t even see what is right before their eyes …..that they are fated to be with each other.

    Blood and Moonlight is a well written novel, I really liked that Kiara is part Fae and Wolf this is something you don’t read too much, I liked that it was different from other PNR reads. The novel was easy to read, has a lot of interesting character’s and the romance between Kiara and Devlin is exciting and you feel the tension building between them. There is so much more to this story the history of Kiara’s family, her tattoos and even Devlin comes from a strong and power background. This is a must read. Moira Keith has done an excellent job and her writing is good, I cannot wait to read more of Moira writings.

    I would recommend Blood and Moonlight to anyone who enjoys Paranormal Romance/Mystery and a touch of Fantasy to pick up this novel. I have rated Blood and Moonlight a 4 star rating and cannot wait to read the next book in this series.

    To be honest, I was pretty sure I was going to enjoy this book j

    To be honest, I was pretty sure I was going to enjoy this book just from reading the premise. I mean, come on, we’re talking Celtic fae, Celtic werewolves, and a story that’s partly set in and around Lake Tahoe. What’s not to like? But with Blood and Moonlight, Moira Keith exceeded even those high expectations.

    For starters, there’s the book’s heroine, Lady Kiara Aislinn Morrigan O’Conaill, recent exile from the fae courts. Kiara manages to be both kick-ass and vulnerable, and I do so love it when those two go together. Kiara is also a direct descendant of the original Morrigan and she has the ancestral markings to prove it. And, yes, we’re talking about that Morrigan, the ancient Irish shapeshifting goddess of war and battlefields who is often associated with ravens and wolves. Wolves! I’m telling you, it was at this point that I fell seriously in love with this series.

    Kiara’s counterpart, Devlin McClure, is all sorts of Irish, alpha-werewolf yumminess. Devlin's pack is in trouble. Its members have been disappearing and Devlin wants Kiara to assist in finding them. Among the missing is the pack's Cadeyrn, or leader, Roarke O’Conaill, who Devlin insists is Kiara’s father.

    Kiara is not convinced. As far as she knows, her father is dead. Even worse, Kiara suspects Devlin’s pack has been hindering her investigation into her mother’s murder and the disappearance of an old friend.

    So although the attraction between them is immediate, Kiara is intent on fighting it for all she’s worth. That's one thing the two of them have in common, their refusal to accept that they’re Cinniúint—fated to be together. What does it matter if they are? If their enemy wins, they’ll both be dead anyway.

    Blood and Moonlight is an awesome read. Author Moira Keith has created an enthralling urban fantasy series, as modern in feel as its Tahoe/Las Vegas setting dictates, but firmly rooted in ancient myths and legends. I think I've died and gone to fantasy heaven and I can’t wait for the next two books!

    Blood and Moonlight is the first in the Trilogy about Kiara Morr

    Blood and Moonlight is the first in the Trilogy about Kiara Morrigan O'Conaill, who shares the bloodline of both Fae and Wolf. Kiara is searching for answers regarding the death of her mother two years ago. She joins forces with Devlin McClure, who needs help to find the leader of his Pack, who has mysteriously disappeared. Kiara and Devlin find themselves increasingly drawn to one another as they struggle against an unknown enemy.

    The characters in this paranormal romance are very well written, and the turmoil Kiara experiences as she wrestles with her dual nature is emotional and compelling. I enjoyed the very believable love story between Kiara and Devlin and their blossoming romance is well paced. The mystery and well-developed background of Wolf and Fae lore add depth and suspense, making this a paranormal romance you don't want to miss!
