Title: Wilder’s Mate
Series: Bloodhoundsl bk 1
Author: Moira Rogers
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.
One of my favorite books of 2012 came from Moira Rogers alter ego Kit Rocha, and yet I had never read any Moira Rogers books. I decided to rectify this and asked for reccomendations on which book I should read. E over at The Bookpushers told me I HAD to read the Bloodhounds books so I started with them.
Upon finishing this book I wondered how I had ever missed the awesomeness that is Moira Rogers. I loved this book.
The world of the Bloodhounds is one I’ve never read before which is probably why I loved it so much. Set in a world much like the historical American West, but with Vampires and Bloodhounds and technology of some sort, its one that sucks you in and keeps you there.
I loved the interactions between Wilder and Satira and how he trusted in her abilities once he saw what she could do. Add in their attraction to each other and I’m surprised my kindle didn’t catch fire.
When they arrive at their destination Wilder trusts Satira to do her part in rescuing Nate and doesn’t bat an eye what greets them there.
This is one of those series where once you start reading one you won’t want to stop. I loved watching Wilder and Satira, and am now addicted to this series.
