Accepting the Moon
Mena had all she wanted in life: a nice house, money, a successful husband who treated her like a queen.
That was, until she found out her marriage was all a lie, and things she never thought could exist, did.
Vampires are real.
Werewolves are real.
And Mena is not human anymore.

Thanks to the sweet author for an Audible copy!
K.S. Haigwood's Accepting the Moon is a fast-paced and very curious story that I was not able to pause.
It may not have the most-unique concept and plot--because let's accept the fact that there are other stories like this--but it was very enjoyable.
Mena just found out that her husband of more than twelve years was cheating on her, and so she immediately left him. She thought that her day could not get any ...more
***I own the ebook and the audiobook
The cover is beautiful with the moon dominating the background.
I have owned this book quite a while. I picked up the audiobook recently, and I listened while I mowed.
This was a great start to a series and started with a bang. It is novella length, so it was short. With the violence, I say this is an adult book. It gave you a recent history on Mena and how she becomes not human. There is plenty of action ...more

First ever book by this author and I definitely will be reading more.
For me to enjoy paranormal romance, I need to love it and boy did I love this!
From the twists in the plot to the romance in the book, I was thoroughly impressed in this action packed paranomal read!
I enjoyed the beginning of the short story when we were introduced to Mena and her cheating husband Marc. The writing was imaginative. The only thing that I didn't enjoy was Pheonix but this might change in the next book. I'm excited to see where K.S Haigwood will take the story.
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
First off, as most of you may already know I’m Team Phoenix all the way. I have tried to find my ideal man to dreamcast him, but sadly this is as close as I can get to Mr. Sex-on-a-Stick himself.
This prequel, sets in motion the strange events that lead up to Mena becoming the alpha werewolf. I HIGHLY recommend that you read this first, since it gives you some much needed information about her husband, Jaxon and Phoenix.
Mena’s world has went to hell in a hand ba
The book starts with Mena talking about why she left her husband. She meets Jackson and enters a whole new world. She just thought living with her husband was rough…it was nothing! Meeting Phoenix changed her world even more than she thought was possible. This was a very fast paced book since it was less than 2 hours, but boy was there a lot packed in! I liked the storyline and the different twist on these 2 species. The narration was flawle ...more

I am never one to enjoy these short novellas. I always thought that was the purpose of the book. I'm definitely old-school lol. But, this has actually changed my mind and I now understand the purpose. And I have to admit how very well this "novella" has freaking worked.
I am wonderfully, happily HOOKED and extremely excited to know that the next books in the series are just waiting for me!!!!
There were things I really liked about this book and then there were things that just didn’t work for me. Mena is angry at Mark, and has every right to be so. She ...more

OMG K.S. Haigwood has done it again!!! First we had the Save My Soul series and now we have Accepting the Moon. She is such an amazing and talented author.
This book is so amazing an has you right from the start .. It starts off with a couple who has been married for 12 years, And the husband has just been caught in a lie about cheating. His wife Mena is hurt beyond words ( and who would ...more
Accepting the Moon is the Prequel to K.S. Haigwood's newest Series, Moonrising. Its a very good start to the series. I was instantly drawn to Mena and her predicament with being the new Alpha. K.S.'s books are ALWAYS amazing and this one wasn't any different. Its fast paced with some downright interesting and sexy characters, with a wonderful dialogue, fantastical paranormal elements, and is VERY easy to get into and enjoy.
Some interesting characters that we ge ...more
Two words, and I was a goner.
What followed those words was what I personally believe is a scene that anyone who has ever been cheated on can personally relate to, whether male or female. Heart-wrenching though the scene was, it played out so realistica ...more
We learn a lot in the first chapter, Mena's world is crumbling down, her marriage of 12 years has sustained irreparable damage (and all the emotions that go with that! I think the author potrayed that emotional tailspin extremely ...more
I don't read romance, although I am a hopeless romantic. I don't read paranormal, although I do have my own vampyre character, who totally defies stereotype.
I don't read paranormal romances.
But... I am always open to new genres. One can't have an open mind if it closed to some things.
For a 'first-timer' to the paranormal/romance genre, Accepting the Moon is a wonderful introduction t ...more

"Excellent Prequel. Can't wait for more"
I really enjoyed this prequel to the Moon rising Series. At the beginning, you meet Mena as she comes to the conclusion she must leave her husband because he's been cheating on her. He turns a bit nasty and she goes. As she drives, she sees a large group of animals. Not trusting her ability to drive, she pulls into a motel and soon she's tumbling headlong into the discovery that vampires and werewolves exist.
I don't want to spoil the story but she certain ...more
I downloaded this book as an audio book, so that I could listen to it while doing household chores. This audio book was narrated by Pyper Down. I loved her narration; her vocal interpretations of the characters made them come alive. She did a fantastic job! Her voice was melodic and smooth, and I found myself drawn into the story more easily. I would definitely listen to more books narrated by her.
Mena is a wonderful character. I really liked ...more
