Baltimore police officer Logan Robinson was wrong for having sex with his partner and best friend Dylan Reed, but giving Dylan the mating bite during sex was insane.

Anger clouds their partnership, and it doesn’t help they are investigating murders that look suspiciously like dog attacks, but Logan knows they’re not.

Finding a killer is tricky enough, but now it will alm

I know, I'm not a reader of shifter stories and while there have been a few werewolf romances I really enjoyed, I don't really know the genre at all.

So deciding to look into this novella about two Baltimore cops was more or less a test to see if my feelings for the genre have changed.
I can now safely say, they have not.

The story starts with Logan and his best friend and colleague Dylan having wild and raunchy sex. Why? How should I know, that's just how it starts. Logan is a werewolf, while Dyla

A "Live Your Life, Buy The Book" Review

What a great supernatural read that was! Vampires, werewolves, fae, witches... the lot! They all coexist, albeit secretly, in the human world. Although the story only dealt with the Weres and the Vamps we do know the others are there, so I am hoping for more! Lots more!

Logan is a 41 years old Police Detective, openly gay and he is an Alpha Werewolf. His Lieutenant knows his little secret, but his partner (and object of his desire) Dylan has no ide

Sexy Men, Werewolves and Baltimore.

Two Alpha police detectives, long time friends and work partners now vying for personal dominance.

An unique start to their story. Dylan is finally having sex with his fellow detective. It is intense, but why did Logan, a werewolf, bite an unsuspecting human when they finally have sex. Logan and Dylan had been attracted to each other for years. They had not done anything about that attraction until Dylan was no longer married. No spoilers here. This was the st

Ahh, werewolves. Truly one of the top three of my favorite shifters. I mean, I love wolves, have since I was a little girl. They're gorgeous, and they're the ancestors of our domesticated dogs. What's not to love? Anyway, I read the blurb for 'The Moon's Dirty Light' and thought it sounded like something I would enjoy.

Dylan and Logan have been partners for awhile, but there's a huge secret Logan is keeping from Dylan. Until the night they both give in to their desires, though, and have raw, anim

Great start to this series

After reading book two first, as a reviewer, I had to come back and read this one.
Logan is so Alpha and I love it, but Dylan won’t put up with his crap and lies. Honesty, less possessiveness, and less controlling was what it takes to get Dylan’s heart, can Logan control all his Alpha traits to win Logan’s heart and have his mate or will Dylan walk away.
Great beginning to this series, looking forward to book three

I really enjoyed this novella. The sex was really hot and I loved the dom alpha Logan. The fighting between Logan and Dylan was fun. The side story about the serial killer was basically filler. I expected a little more exciting catch, but I still had a good time with this story.

Love my shifters, yadda yadda, been there, done that. You all know the drill by now.

This story was a variation for me. In this case, the werewolf bit his mate and turned him into a wolf, too. Problem was, he didn’t tell him in advance. Whoops. This leads to a rift between them. Logan is afraid that Dylan will reject him, and his wolf aches to finalize the claiming on Dylan.

Odd place to start. I feel like I missed something. How did they get into bed with each other in the first place?

Cool, they're over 40!

If women can be werewolves, how is it a mutation of the Y chromosone?

They fell asleep on the greenhouse floor and woke up in bed. Huh?

A female alpha!!!!! And African American!!

Totally appropriate and believable reaction from Dylan.

I really felt we were in Baltimore. The author made it real.

The bad guy has been sniffing around and they take time to have sex?

This book had possibilities but didn't quite do it for me..
Minor editing mistakes. Obvious discrepancies in the storyline.
ie: MC werewolf is shot at point blank range twice in the chest.. within minutes the bullets pop out and he heals.. Yet a punch leaves his jaw aching for a longish period of time

Fast Paced Rollicking Read

This was a fast paced, fun adventure. I liked the setting in Ba!timore, since I love the city. It's a quick read, a solid story, and likable characters. I hope there will be more , as I would definitely like it to continue.

Logan and Dylan were adorable! I would have liked to see Dylan’s first shift and the whole he could under the right circumstances get pregnant could have been drawn out! None of that ruined the book and from what I understand, they’re the subject of book number 3!
Enjoyable series, and I definitely recommend it. Happy reading!!!

I admit, I didn't know what to expect when I was given this story to review. The opening passage contained a few words so often overused in the genre that I braced myself for a bit of the same old same old--but I was pleasantly surprised that this was NOT the case! No, instead the authors treated us with a delightful romp through the common tropes of shifter fiction in the M/M romance genre, gently poking fun at them while obviously having a good time too. And yet the story wasn't merely one lon ...more

For big pluses I have to say that the sex was pretty hot. For complaints, I have to second what others have said about the mystery/thriller portion of the plot. The duo have one instance of taking time out to have sex when they should have been performing their duty. They also have sex when they know the criminal is in the area--instead of being on guard against him or actually trying to hunt him down. I also realized at the end of the book that Logan and Dylan never really contributed a lot to ...more

NOTE: I RECEIVED THIS AS AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR A FAIR & HONEST REVIEW.

I'm a sucker for shifter stories and this one pushed some of my favorite buttons. Woo boy, that first scene! :D :D :D I liked being shown Dylan's journey from human to werewolf, his struggle with that, and the comic book references were GREAT. A few chuckles is never a negative for me. Crime scenes that includes Edgar Allen Poe's grave appeals to my weird side, too. A fun and sexy read for shifter fans...4.50, rounding up to

It was very nice to see the authors made Dylan one way sumbmissive and in one way dominant.
His reaction to finding out the truth was one of the most honest ones I have ever read in a Paranormal Romance. He was truly frightend and terrified and he panicked in a way that was a kneejerk reaction caused by all of the above. It wasn't the known"oh well you are a werewolf, cool" reaction one gets so often in these types of books, the struggle afterwards was well described and even the big bad alpha wo

This is the first book in The Werewolves of Baltimore Series. An intriguing book with good writing. There were a few grammar issues though. I enjoyed this book, but it needed more detail. I felt that there were gaps of information that if filled would have deepened the story. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. Although the murders plot didn’t feel like it was really part of the story. Like parts were just put in to give the story another aspect to expand the story. ...more

Dylan and Logan have been partners for years. Until one night changes the nature of their relationship. But with secrets kept will they make it past a one night stand?

The Moon’s Dirty Light is first in by H.L. Holston’s Werewolves of Baltimore series. Logan and Dylan are cops. They are friends who need to trust each other due to the nature of their job. One night their veiled attraction ignites but one of them hasn’t been completely honest. Can they move past the sense of betrayal? I like Dylan

This is the first book and a cautionary tale of what happens when full disclosure isn’t exercised. Logan is a werewolf on a human police force who happens to be gay and in love with his oblivious best friend and partner on the force, Dylan. Dylan was once married to a woman but is now divorced and has come out. When they finally succumb to each other, Logan’s wolf takes things a bit too far and changes Dylan’s life forever. Honestly, if I were Dylan, Logan would have gotten much harsher treatmen ...more

3.5 stars

Although I liked this book, I think it was really too short to tell the story completely. There needed to be a bit more groveling on Logan's part for biting Dylan without his permission. I don't have an issue with Dylan eventually giving into the mate pull, but I wish there was just a bit more space in the book to see more of Dylan actually dealing with the issue.
