Girl walks in bar. She's a ollege student. She meets biker guy. She is a dominant coyote looking for a stronger than her guy & finds that with Lars. It was a good story with an HEA.

26 pages isn't much to be able to really rate a book, but it fared well none the less. Parts that bugged me?? The dude is 32 & lives in a freaking trailor... How 'hot guy' is that? I am not into trailor trash... sorry. She is in college & obviously stooping lower than herself. Oh well.

This book reminds me a bit of Moira Rogers' Last Call series (which I like) so it was a win for me. This was a very short story about that revolves around one night of sex...and the implications that brings. I'd happily keep reading this series.

Moonshine was a free ARE download I picked up on September 6th, 2012 for the Why Buy the Cow? reading challenge.

"4 out of 5 stars. For a really short story I did like it! The characters were great! And if I ever read..."

Read more of this review and a TEASER here:
Multiple, constant, and recurring switching point of view between characters from paragraph to paragraph within one scene is a no-go for me. Beginning of the story was just annoying to follow and that feeling stayed with me for the 30-something pages that followed. The sex scenes were promising but the supposed shift in power between Claire and Lars looked forced and overdone. The story was a little too short to reach a conclusion other than

Being fed up with pretending to be human Claire goes into one of the worst bars she can find, to find another shifter for hot sex without strings attached. What she finds is Lars, a dangerous and sexy alpha shifter who is willing to spill a little moonshine, a potent shifter aphrodisiac, and have great sex. Their passionate encounter leaves both wanting for more, but Lars does not want a repeat if Claire can__t enjoy their passion without the moonshine. Will Claire be able to embrace her wild si ...more

I see a book by Moira Rogers and I know one thing for certain I am going to find when I read it -- hot, steamy, unbridled passion! What can I say? She knows how to make the blood boil. This was my second read by this author and I was far from disappointed. The story was short and to the point. Moonshine was definitely not what you may think just from the title. No liquor needed for these two mates! It was entertaining. If you like hot sex scenes with a bit of creative story-telling thrown in, I ...more

Claire is a were-Coyote who is struggling with who she really is. After hurting her human boyfriend during sex she heads out to a sleazy rough bar in a bad part of town to see if she can hook up with another were and be herself. She meets Lars, another were-Coyote in the bar and together they share some moonshine, an aphrodisiac drink for Were's and head back to his place so he can show Claire what she is truly capable of.

This is a very short erotica, the characters where interesting. I would ha

Claire is a coyote shapeshifter whose human ex-boyfriend could not deal with her being stronger than he is. Her stop at a tough bar hooks her up with a stranger named Lars, who is a shapeshifter just like her. Fueled by a few swigs of moonshine and pressured by Lars, Clair sheds her facade and has the hot, pounding sex she has been denying she wants...

Whew, this one was hot. I found it interesting that Claire was suppressing her shifter side, to the point where it was fighting to come out. I liked that Claire went someplace she wasn't comfortable in order do to what she wanted. Lars was the perfect person for her to take out her frustrations. I really liked that Lars made her voice what she wanted and needed, then gave her the space to be sure.

I do wish this one was longer. I want to know what the deal is with Claire hiding so much away and h
Ok though this book was very quick, it was still extremely hot and delicious, I wish there has been a little more of a plot and backstory, like how did she hurt her human boyfriend and how did Lars already know her. I also inda wish it would have had them shift together at some point but oh well it was still very enjoyable definitely erotic and I do recommend it if you want a super quick hot read to pass the time ;););););););)

oh and though they never actually shifted or anything i am gonna save
I did't know that it was just a quick read based on the description. it seems that there is a good plot behind the two main charaters.

Anyways i find Moira Rogers a good author of these quickie erotica books.

It was all about Claire, a cayote shifter who happen to be with humans boyfriends only, who she recently hurt during sex and broke a bone..."that was hilarious for me.."

But she was able to meet her equal.
And Lars complimented her a lot.
I liked Lars because he knows how to treat her woman, mo

Another erotica short story available in ebook format. In this one Claire is a female wolf-shape shifter looking to let the wolf inside her out. Lars, is the bad-ass alpha male willing to give Claire what she wants. Because this is a short story there isn’t much in the way of character development or relationship building so the hot sex happens rather quickly. It was okay for what it was even though this is unedited version.

i enjoyed this hot read of a short story.

Claire is a coyote shifter tired of pretending to be less than she is, and in a bar she meets Lars, another alpha coyote who gives her what she really wants.

Lars & Claire are also significant characters in Last Hope.

I'm not entirely sure how I felt about this story. It seemed like the author wanted it to be a romance but the romance was nonexistent between the characters. There was hot sex but no emotion and no real character development.
I didn't particularly dislike or like the characters. It wouldn't keep me from trying something else by the author but this story was "meh".
Literary Ames {Against GR Censorship}
I know that this is only a short ebook but a little more story and this could have been 4 or even 5 stars. I wanted to know some more about Lars and the other were-coyotes. Perhaps we will be given more information on them in the next installment of the series.

Moira writes great short stories. Even though they are short they leave you satisfied in the end. This one was no exception because it was filled with a great story, smokin hot chemistry and melt the sheets (or floor and wall) sex.
Moonshine introduces us to Claire, a coyote shifter who's ex is human. While at a bar, she hooks up with another shifter, Lars, who gives her some moonshine, a shifter aphrodisiac.

I always know what I'll find when I pick up a book by Moira - something sure to be magically delicious.

They do know how to write eroticism. Lots of writers need to learn the difference with pornography. :D

Thanks N for the loan.
