I've read quite a few books from Moira Rogers and I've never been disappointed. So when I started Wilder's Mate I was hoping it would be a good book. AH! What I ended up with, is a fantastic book I just couldn't stop thinking about for days. Wilder's Mate pretty much blew me away. As soon as I finished it I was stalking the author's website trying to find a clue about when the next book would be released.

Wilder's Mate is some kind of Steampunk paranormal romance set in the Wild West. I'm not sure I got the genre right, but I felt like I was in a Western movie with a paranormal twist. I've never read anything quite like this before. Well just look at the cover and you'll get the feel of the book. *g* Satira has been the assistant of a weapon inventor, Nathaniel, for years. Now that he's been kidnapped, she's ready to go find him even if it means running into danger. She must leave before the new Bloodhound, a Vampire Killer created by the Guild, arrives and tries to stop her.

And what a Bloodhound. Wilder is just WOW. I was afraid this review would end in a Squee Fest, but I really can't help it. *squee* I just love Wilder soooo much. He's sexy, daring, dangerous, mysterious, wild, he has a sense of humor and so much more. He is everything I love in a hero. *sigh* Anyway, when Wilder meets Satira, he agrees to help her get Nathaniel back and they start their journey to the dangerous Frontier lands. This is the Wild west, it is dangerous and no respectable woman could be found there so it'll take some tricks to keep Satira in one piece.

As I said before, Bloodhounds are vampire killers created by the Guild. They aren't really humans anymore and no one except the Guilt knows how a Bloodhound is created. They have needs and every new moon it gets very very intense...and HOT. Just as you wouldn't like to be too close on the Full Moon. Satira knows a lot about Bloodhounds for the simple reason that she's been raised by one. She's not an innocent wallflower, she dresses like a man, she uses weapons and she's not a stranger to the pleasures of the flesh (I knew I'd place this in a review one day *g*). Satira is not helpless, she's not always in need of rescuing, I really like that she wasn't stupid and didn't rush into danger without means to defend herself. From the start you can feel the spark between her and Wilder. She's attracted to him. And I couldn't help but smile at how much she wanted him. Their bantering was very funny. I loved their sense of humor.

Wilder might not be human anymore but he still has some control over his needs. I really loved that he wasn't chasing the heroine, it was pretty much the opposite. He is very intense and you can't help but see the Beast in him. (Again just look at the cover!). *sigh* I really fell hard for Wilder. The story was really good, I liked it from start to end. In less than 100 pages so much happens it felt like a full length novel. It's the perfect mix between adventure and sexy romance.

This book is HOT. Oh boy very very hot. I think what made the book so hot is the hero, Wilder. He pushes all my buttons and he's just so sexy...ahem... sorry I'm back. The growing sexual tension between Satira and Wilder is very intense and when they finally give The smex scenes were very very hot and felt completely right. Wilder's Mate is just WOW. O_O There's no other words for it.

Now completely random point:
At some point we learn something about Wilder and Susi teased me for hours about it. I lost Wilder as a Book Boyfriend to her because of it. AHHHHHH *headdesk* She used my OWN words against me LMAO. I might have said something about heroes with this exact characteristic the day before, saying that I couldn't relate to that kind of heroes. *headdesk* I learned my lesson. I will turn my tongue 7 times in my mouth before saying anything from now on. lol *sob* Wilder *sob* Damn you Susi, I hope you'll take good care of him!!! *shakes fist in the air*

Ok back to the review. Moira Rogers (Donna and Bree) created a captivating world with amazing characters. Everything worked for me, the setting, the characters, the plot. Damn, I really fell under the spell of this book. Wilder makes the book perfect. I cannot wait for more books in this series.

I give Wilder's Mate 5 Bookies. And since it was SO hot, it deserves a special heat rating completely made up for the occasion . So here, 5 HOT Flames too
