Ok I must admit that while I did still really like this one, it would have to be my least favorite of the series. I'm sorry because I did like it, but it just seemed kinda sad and disappointing. They didn't end up together and I really just couldn't understand their relationship. Did they love each other? Was she just using him? Did they get back together or something? I really was just confused most the time. Oh and though the sex was really hot and yummy lol I also I found it really weird how ...more
A big disappointment as I usually love what they write. This is clearly an earlier story - light on romance, erotica (though not light on the sex), plot and character development. It was a freebie so I only lost the time it took to read.

This is a short story and boy is it steamy, hot and then some. The plot is very simple, Ella is at odds with another vampire and she needs the help of her old lover Blake. And of course this book is full of se*, so defiantly not a young adult book; at least not in my opinion. I really like the details in this book and I guess the reason for that is because so many short stories feel superficial to me. But this one, you can tell that at one point that Blake was really in love with Ella and still ...more

Huh. Surprisingly bittersweet in the end. After back-to-backing Moira Roger's Last Call series (they. are. so. gooooooood.) I've come to expect sweet with my sexy, and a healthy serving of romance and happy endings.

The Mystic Valley books seem a little darker. No less hot, oh no, and the leads still have a strong fascination with... uh... 'toys'. This was a quick read -- shorter than any other MR novellas -- but no less compulsively readable or flesh out for it. In fact, this couple may have mor

I have a feeling this short read is about characters previously introduced in a full length novel by the author, but could not figure out which. I have a feeling if that is the case and you are a fan that you would enjoy this read more than I did. I really would have only given it a 2 1/2 if that were an option. I felt like I was missing something the whole time. I did enjoy the writer's style of writing and will probably check out her full length works. I am really hoping this was a short read ...more
Moira Rogers knows how to bring teh sex. There's not much of a HEA (or even a hint of one) but it ends on a good note. Plus, these books aren't really about the romance anyway. I pretty much like whatever Moira Rogers throw my way.

The Thirteenth Step was a free download I found on Moira Rogers' website on September 8th, 2012 for the Why Buy the Cow? reading challenge.
I actually like this short hot and erotic read. Moira Rogers does have a lot of magic to her short steamy stories. the plot is clear, the characters are well described and the sexy scenes are exploding. Its like you are wanting for more. Ella, a vampire is very strong willed and till the end he did not submit to Blake. But they do know that they will still end up for each other. Moira Rogers's books are like food that will make you want more...its like something that you will crave..:)

Recommends it for: anyone who enjoys paranormal erotica
This is a short erotic story about Blake a shapeshifter and Ella a vampire.
Blake and Ella had a relationship years ago until Blake called it all off. Now Ella has brought him to Vegas under the false pretence of a job. What Ella really needs is Blake's Blood as she struggles for power against the city's Master.

It's not a happy ending with this one, though I still liked it. I didn't like how Ella used Blake like that, but he did get his own back in the end. A stort hot steamy read.

This was a super short story. The characters were interesting. I wish it had been longer. I haven't read the Mystic Valley series yet, but if it's these same characters I can't wait.
