pro novella rec - Moonshine by Moira Rogers
children of dune - leto 1
seperis
My internet access has been icky and I have been in a bad mood adn pretty much the one awesome thing in the universe is Fraser. Yes, it has been that kind of a weekend.

Moonshine by moirarogers - a friend sent me a copy to read, as the friend wrote it and just started e-publishing and I have a weakness like you would not believe for supernatural fantasy. And erotica. Yes, I'm sure you'd believe that part.

I'm torn; I don't want to spoil, but I do want to say what I liked about it. So below cut, very lightly.



Summary from the Cobblestone Press:
Claire is tired of pretending to be polite, docile...human. She wants to unleash the animal inside her, and she wants to do it with a man who can really handle her. Then she meets Lars, a dangerous, sexy alpha, in a smoky bar. They share some moonshine, a potent shifter aphrodisiac, and have blisteringly hot sex.

Their one night of intoxicated passion leaves her wanting more, but Lars isn't interested in a woman who can only let loose while under the influence. Claire must then decide whether she's ready--and willing--to truly embrace her wild side.


I don't think the summary really does justice to it, because this was just a fun, fun read. I liked how Claire was introduced a *lot*, and I like how the basic character and background were sketched so believably, and God help us all, well written pro erotica, which is so painfully rare that I get instant glee from just *reading* some. It's a fun, fast read (dear God do I wish I'd had this on the plane) and it's hot. And I like the relationship developed her and well, I cannot say this enough, not terrifying purple erotica. I seriously thought publishers didn't accept it unless it was unnerving and used weird euphemisms.

Some D/s-ish and well. Shapeshifter. I own my kinks totally.



Here is also a link to the author's website: http://moirarogers.com/

If the universe is fair, I will not keep having my connection fizzle when trying to read. Let us all send a special feeling of hope toward Road Runner.

I'm done with all seasons, I just need to rewatch season two again because Victoria was freaking *damaging* or something.

Then I met Kowalski. Jesus H Christ.

i've seen them all, it's just been a few years and i'm rewatching.

HELLO RAY K. HELLO. *wrap around*

I HAVE NEVER MET A CHARACTER I THOUGHT MIGHT BE HAPPIER AND HEALTHIER AS A SERIAL KILLER. I AM SO IN LOVE WITH HIM IT IS RIDICULOUS.

I HAVE NEVER OTC'ed BOTH PARTS OF MY OTP. THIS IS SO FREAKING WEIRD.

you will need to explicate that in long and beautiful paragraphs. so i can love them.

RAY.

Fantastic. I go through these orig slash fic phases, and okay, the pro novella you're talking about isn't actually like that at all, yet in my head, they fulfill the same desire. I'm so going to get it and read it. Thanks!
