Review: Diana's Hound by Moira Rogers

Diana's Hound (Bloodhounds #4) by Moira Rogers
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Nate Powell lived one full life as a world-class inventor before a disaster born of magic and science returned him to his prime—and turned him into a half-vampire, half-bloodhound abomination.

He’s finally stopped yearning for death, but he’s a long way from being excited about life—even if his newly virile body is very excited by the latest arrival to Iron Creek.

Diana is another creature that shouldn’t exist—a female bloodhound. While the males of Iron Creek accept her as a fellow warrior, Nate seems torn between a desire to study her and a need to protect her. Diana’s urges are a lot more carnal.

When they learn that a rogue hound is selling women across the border, Diana and Nate are chosen to infiltrate the vampires’ capital city. Before long, their inner bloodhounds feel the mating pull—and a hound never outlives their mate for long. In a fight to keep each other alive, they could both end up worse than dead.

Warning: Contains a badass vampire-hunting heroine who isn’t afraid to fight dirty and a broody half-vampire hero about to discover a reason to live again. Also beware of: bloodhound-on-bloodhound violence, airship heists and some furniture-endangering sex with lots of biting, all in an alternate Wild West.
My Thoughts: Standard Disclaimer: I love this series. LOVE IT. I've been hooked on this paranormal steampunk sexiness since book 1 fell into my hands. This book -- THIS BOOK -- is so full of bite-y, fight-y awesomeness that your head might explode. Which would be unfortunate but I think you'll agree that it's TOTALLY worth it.

Diana and Nate are an explosive duo. Nate has enough bloodhound to feel territorial around Diana and she flat-out wants him. Get them together and things happen! Sexy things! Things that would make their mamas blush.

Things that rocked my world -- we got to see the whole gang again. I love when characters from previous books pop in and poke around. The bloodhounds are still fighting the good fight, protecting the humans from the vampires and trying their hardest to make their little corner of the world safe. Their respective mates haven't slowed any of them down - they're still feral and vicious and they crave the fighting they were bred for.

With revelations that could easily fuel several future books (YES, PLEASE!), sexy shenanigans galore, and several old favorites putting in an appearance, this installment is full of all the things that made me fall in love with these bloodhounds in the first place. Paranormal steampunk never had it so good!

  1. I NEED TO PICK UP THIS SERIES AGAIN! I think I read book 1 and that's it. I'm pretty sure that book 2 is on my wishlist. *runs off to check*

    1. I'm not implying anything but... book 3 is really good, too. And book 4. You should put those on your wishlist, as well. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN THE EBOOK FAIRY MIGHT WANT TO BUY YOU SOMETHING!
      *raises eyebrow*
      What? It's happened before.
