This novella started off so well...and then went to total shit. In the beginning we're introduced to sexy Alpha among Alphas, Mac and the sexy, capable, strong-willed Hannah. Everything was looking good. I was loving the narrative predominantly from Mac's POV and thrilled to be reading about a heroine who was competing on par and impressing all the type A, military men. You go girl!

Then about 25% through the book the sexual tension cranked up and Hannah's IQ dropped by about 50 points, as did
I stumbled upon this book by accident, and I'm glad I did! While its a quick read, only took a couple hours, it packed quite a punch. I can't wait for the next two to come out!

We start with the two main characters en route to their meeting point with the rest of the group. Hannah has proven herself to be strong, capable and resilient. Mac is impressed, even though he doesn't want to be. These two butt heads frequently and I loved the repartee between them.

It is well written with the fast pace you would expect from a novella, however the ending is quite abrupt. Also, although I obviously know nothing about being pregnant with a werewolf, I did find it slightly amusing

Oh my God I freaking loved this book! *sneakers* It just kept surprising me, it was a unique story that I found fascinating. Definitely recommend this book to wolves and military lovers.

The narrative flops back and forth from Hannah to Mac without warning. In the same chapter.

Hannah started off so strong and then 25% into the book, she's a crying mess. I was so confused. So confused. Then I was confused about her not wanting to be left alone. That's never really fleshed out. Mate or not, I would have left her in the desert to die.

Mac was your typical Alpha male who beat his chest and pi$$ed on everything. Over reacts at the drop of a hat if another male looks at Hannah. UGH!

I had bought and read this book quite a few years ago and remember enjoying it then. I am tidying up my books and redoing missing reviews.
Great to see this series has since ben added too, as there were only a few books at the time I first found this series.
Enjoyable read with interesting and addicting characters. Though this plot that has since been done to death, I believe Ms James was one of the first with the evil corporation idea of changing/mixing soldiers DNA with shifters.
Even though

I really enjoyed this romance novella. A quick, easy read but kept my interest. There was romance and action. The heroine fought against the Love at first sight which was refreshing. Cant wait to read the sequel! ...more

Ive been a fan of Silvers since I read her very first book Faeire Fire. Im also lucky enough to be able to claim Silver as a friend, so I was super excited when she told me she had plans to self-pub her next series of books. I was given an early copy of Blood Moon to read, and bought a copy for my kindle as soon as it was available.

I was a fan of Hannahs from the very beginning. I also really loved Mac and his friends. Mac is ready to get rid of Hannah from pretty much the moment she shows up,

I really like this series. I think this one was free or 99 cents on Amazon when I started it. It combines two of my favorites, elite military + shifters! How can you go wrong? The length of this and the following books are perfect for my reading style. That is to say once I start a book I like I find it hard to stop reading until I finish. Which means I either end up ordering pizza for dinner, or stay up way to late reading! But this one is a novella ~80 pages and in fact all in the series are ...more

Cross the military with werewolves and this book is what you get. The characters are unique and well written.

Major Hannah Jackson is from the Inspector General division and is temporarily attached to the Army Sci Ops Unit 69 to determine if this group is to be retained by the military or be handed over to civilians.

Sergeant Major Ian "Mac" McIntire is so not happy about this. She is in the way and slowing his team down. He is also an Alpha male werewolf in his team of werewolves. He is

This story was really short, more novella length than full novel length. It was a quick, enjoyable read. However, I wish the story had been a bit longer and the whole thing flushed out a little bit more. I wanted more interaction between characters and a little more insight into who Mac was. The story just was not long enough to really get to know anyone other than, somewhat, Hannah. Also, I would have liked at least one more chapter worth or story so I could see what happened after the mission ...more

I really liked the beginning of this tale. The men were hot, alpha, and military, some of my favorite characters out there. The female MC was strong, capable, and determined. Yay! But what kept this from being a 5 star review was the head-hopping after the second chapter. And once the characters had sex, the female MC lost all her strength, capability, and determination. I wondered where the "take-no-shit" Major had gone. Fortunately, Ms. James is a strong enough storyteller to allow me to enjoy ...more

Sizzling hot quick read

This made for the perfect afternoon read. Its a fast paced 82 pages of some serious sexual tension. A touch of erotic in my sense (not lots of sex here, but plenty of lust) Story was exciting and held my interest. I wasnt a fan of the ending, but I expect other books in this series to add more closure/details of Mac and Hannah's status.

I would ideally rate this a 4.5 star book, but I'm going to round it up to a 5 star review on Amazon since I got this as a freebie at the

Great read!

Really enjoyed the characters! Loved how strong and sexy Mac, and Hannah were, loved their connection to each other! Even when none f it made sense and scared her she knew they were connected!

I only wished the book was longer! Would love to know more of their story. Did they hae a pup? Did they stay together forever and how has Hannah done with their world? I only hope the answer will come with the other books in the series! I am looking forward to reading them!

Great, fun read that

Good read with some biological errors that about drove me nuts.

People! It can take 2-3 days from release of sperm until fertilization of egg. From there it is another 9 days until fertilized egg implants in the uterus and you are "pregnant". She is not going to be be instantly preggers. She could be quickly fertilized but her hormones don't really start changing until that darn egg implants.

Having her exhibit a whole host of pregnancy symptoms hours after the dirty deed is distracting.

I enjoyed this saucy, alpha oozing, short story. Had the makings for a great novel and I likely would have went with four stars had it not been for the ending. Nothing pisses me off more than for a book to end at like the 80 something percent but then add to the fact that it was just cut off like that, so abrupt, three is the best I can do. Unfortunately. I really wanted more but not sure I will continue with this series.

I picked up Blood Moon after reading about it on a couple of book blogs. Silver James in a new author to me, and I'll be watching for her next release in this series. I loved the heroine especially, and her intaction with the hero, Ian. He's an uber alpha male and needs a good woman to show him what a mate should be, not what her percieves as her role. I felt like their story could have been a little longer, but I'm hoping we'll see more of them in the second book of the series.

Great start to a new series and I enjoyed the characters featured. However, I was rather disappointed with the rather abrupt ending. I did see a comment though about extended versions coming out this fall and wish I would have known that before I purchased all three books just tonight. Ah well, live and learn, right? Anyways, good work. Look forward to reading the others and the extended ones this fall.

Far too short, but really very good. The strong Alpha to the spirited female made the story interesting and exciting, with strong sub characters adding diversity and variety. I loved the writing style, which I thought had attitude while maintaining a solid story all round. Like i say though, fat too short...I was left wanting that little bit more.

Short story, but entertaining. I liked her unusual take on Werewolves, though I feel she had plenty of room to expand the story and could have provided additional back story. Overall an enjoyable, quick read.

Excellent first book in this new series by Silver James. I love the world she's created from the old werewolf myth. And the characters are awesome. I cannot wait for the next installment of this trilogy (and here's hoping she goes way beyond just three books).

I really enjoyed this short read, it was a kindle free read from amazon. I found the story line intresting about wolves being used in the military for 200 hundred years. One paticular wolf, Sgt Major Ian McIntyre has met his match in Major Hannah Jackson.

For a novella this was a great book! If you're looking for a quick, action-packed read, then you may really enjoy this book.

I started reading this book not sure if I was going to like it. After the first chapter, I was hooked! It's a shorter story than I'm used to and each book connects to the next so there's no "actual" cliff hanger.
I really loved the idea behind this book and the series. But I was sorely disappointed that there was hardly, and I mean they hardly had sex. So if you are looking for a really hot and steamy book. This aint it. BUT, it was the short novella intro. Im buying the sequel and giving it another go.

Too short for my liking it. I was expecting to have the mating bond/relationship explained or developed. When it ended I was like "what? What about the blood moon?"
