3 1/2 to 4 stars

This book was a fun introduction to the series. I was drawn in by how the author blended aspects of mythology with elements of the paranormal to create her own unique and interesting world. It is one where gods and demons often behave in mysterious and selfish ways that leave others grappling with terrible consequences and the strong potential of death.

When Solace 'Lacey' Ryan flies out to Ireland in order to fulfill a lifelong dream, she has no idea of the roller-coaster ride th

I wavered between 3 "liked it" stars and 4 "really liked it" stars throughout, but finally decided on 4 because of a pretty darn awesome third act.

Smoke in Moonlight included some of my favorite romance themes. American girl travels abroad and meets a hottie from a different country, is introduced to a world of magic and paranormal beings she never knew existed, the world building is based on existing myth and legend... What else... Oh yeah, a sexy shifter!


I knew I had something good when I was

I read Heather R. Blair’s short story compilation “Shivers: 9 Dark and Twisted Tales” and loved it, mainly because of the amazing imagery the author was able to invoke. So when I saw she had a full length novel out, I immediately bought it.
Following Lacey, a human, and Ronan, a man cursed to be a werewolf, Smoke in Moonlight has all the elegant prose and spine-tingling atmosphere that I’ve come to expect from this author. But she also delivers so much more. The book has everything from romance t

I might be the only one, but I freaking loved Aine!

Lacey decides to drop everything and fly to Ireland to write a book. It's something she's always wanted to do, and now she is in a place that she can. So, against her sister's wishes, away she goes.

A series of pitfalls and a devious goddess later, she ends up at the home of the Fitzpatrick family. She loves the close-knit clan immediately.

Ronan has been cursed. He's been a werewolf for a very, very, long time. Thanks to his dreams, he knows as s

This book had an interesting world filled with a cursed werewolf, a vampire and other magical beings. It also had the authors take on Celtic mythology, which I have never read before. I found it interesting and it just goes to show that if you are reading about Greek or any other mythology, gods and goddesses are vain creatures that will do whatever it takes to gain their selfish needs.

I liked Ronan, even though his first reaction to Lacey wasn’t the greatest. But that’s understandable

Where do I start?! This is the first book that I have read by Heather R. Blair, but I can say with certainty that it will not be the last.
I loved the introduction into Irish lore and the magic and fantasy surrounding the characters.
Ronan absolutely stole my heart, while Lacey was such a well written female character that it was hard not to root for her. I would love to read more about these two and what happens in their future, hopefully there will be some mention of them in the next book, Blo

I really disliked this book. I did not feel there was any romance in it whatsoever. The "hero" Ronan starts off attempting to kill the heroine Lacey. (view spoiler) From there on, he continues to be mean to the heroine AND continues to contemplate killing her for most of the book. I truly could not understand how on earth Lacey would want to do anything sexually with this man. It just wasn't believable, not was the professed love at the end ...more

This was my first read by Heather R. Blair, but it won't be my last. Smoke in Moonlight is the first novel in the Celtic Elementals series. This is an adult paranormal romance with a wide expanse of creatures. Werewolves, vampires, mythological gods/goddesses, changelings, and demons all make an appearance.

Lacey, an American, travels to Ireland in hopes of writing her first novel. Although I don't think she ever got to write a word. Her plans get derailed the moment she arrives. Aine, a goddess

This is my first book by the author and I could not have asked for a better introduction to her books. Lacey is strong fun and prefers to go with the flow. Ronan is a cursed werewolf who is close to giving up. They have seen prophetic dreams about each other which make them wary and mistrustful. The world is a fascinating blend of Celtic mythology and paranormal. The Gods tend to play manipulative games and humans suffer the consequences of these. The characters are driven by complex motives and ...more

***I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Lovers of Paranormal and the author.****

I actually REALLY REALLY enjoyed this book. I loved the use of the Irish folklore and I loved the characters.

I like Ronan, Lacey, Moire and Daire. All really interesting and strong characters. I wasn't a huge fan of Aidan but since the next book is his book, I hope I change my mind, lol. The romance was perfect. I thought the ending was slightly rushed and would have liked to relish in the roman

Just when things are looking up for her, the eldest child of the Fitzpatrick family comes in and shows his disdain openly for her presence in his life.

Celtic Elementals Series Book 1: Smoke in Moonlight

Elementals, My Dear Watson!

This novel begins with The Legend of the Faoladh. It’s gorgeous. So, don’t skip the preface. It sets the mood for this paranormal vaycay to Ireland. The details of the story whisked me to the Emerald Isle without the expensive plane trip. I could taste the tea brewing and smell the soda bread baking. I could also feel the tortured existence of the faoladh.

A great start to a great series! Smoke in Moonlight is a wonderful story of love and heart ache. Ronan is cursed and is in need of love that he doesn't feel he deserves. He has a big and loving family, that often saves him from himself. Lacey is a sweet girl with a big heart and is on a trip of a life time to Ireland, to finally follow her dreams. Both Ronan and Lacey are having weird dreams of one another but Ronan won't stop until he finds the girl who could ruin him forever. After meeting ...more

Hmmm...where to start?

Maybe I'll start by saying that overall I really enjoyed reading this story and it was well worth my time. I don't read a lot of paranormal books but I thought there were several aspects that were unique and entertaining in this one. The story of Ronan and Lacey is told over a very short period of time. So the fact that they fall in love may irritate some people, but the author does a good job of creating strong feelings with these two through the use of dream sequences bot

I absolutely loved it! It's the perfect length to start with; long enough to tell the story properly without dragging it out.
The characters make this story. Each one embodies a personality I see in people in know but at the same time possess unique quirks all their own. Just when you think you know them so well, they act like real people and do the unexpected.
I'm a huge fan of this genre and very pleased this book did it justice. I definitely recommend this book for those unacquainted with the

Well, I thought I was going to work today, thought I'd be productive. Nope, not in the least. I couldn't put this book down. Ronan and Lacey completely captivated me.

Not often do I genuinely like the heroine, usually, I just tolerate her for the sake of the story. Lacey I actually liked. She was an easy going person and acknowledged she let life happen. I understand that, I'm the same way myself. But when it's important, she becomes a lioness willing to stand up and fight.

Ronan, well, it's nice

Heather R. Blair wrote her first book in the first grade and hasn't stopped since. Back then it was all about horses, now it's pretty much the dark, sexy and shivery.

She lives in the frozen north of Minnesota, near that big gorgeous lake called Superior and enjoys hiking when the snow melts. She also does murals, rides herd on four monsters(otherwise known as children, ages 8-18), is slightly obs

“He did things with his mouth she'd never even considered before. It was a brutally thorough kiss. Lacey was clinging to him weakly when he finally ended it. "Donna ye taste it?” he whispered, lowering her feet to the rug and peeling her hands from his shoulders. "What?" Lacey asked, seeing him through a haze of shock and desire. "The darkness.” 6 likes
