He hasn’t forgotten her, and she sure hasn’t forgiven him.

Jessica Macks is a she-wolf on the run from a band of murderous rogues. When she finds a job at a shifter bar, it seems like a safe haven from her hunted life on the road. But the minute she walks through the swinging doors of the Blue Moon Saloon and comes face-to-face with the man she once loved, she’s tempted to march right back out. No way, no how is she risking her heart to that infuriating alpha bear again.

Simon Voss thought he lost everything in an ambush months before: his home, his family, his past. His new job at the Blue Moon Saloon is a desperately needed fresh start on life. Then along comes Jessica, the irresistible she-wolf his clan forced him to reject years before. When Simon is obliged to hire Jessica and work side by side with the one woman to ever make his bear go wild, he’s half in heaven, half in hell. He hasn’t forgotten her, and she sure as hell hasn’t forgiven him. Is this just another path to heartbreak or his last chance to claim his destined mate?

* A paranormal romance with adult content. The perfect read for fans of strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, red-hot cowboys, romantic westerns, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, and fantasy romance! *

What happens when old hurts still linger and old threats come calling?

Damnation is book one in the Blue Moon Saloon series by Anna Lowe. What a wonderful new series that brings us strong heroines, alpha heroes, shifters of all kinds, hot cowboys, action, and much more.

The Blue Moon Saloon series takes place in the same world as The Twin Moon Ranch series. What is important to note is that both series can be read separately even though they are in the same world coexisting side-by-side. The author does a fabulous job bring her world to life and working in the characters from the other series, but what’s impressive is that she made them feel brand new or if you are a fan, ones you have come to love.

I devoured this book in one sitting. I had a great time with this second chance romance. I will never be board or get enough of Ms. Lowe’s characters and world. She is an outstanding writing that can bring her characters to life, pulling the reader in deeply, making you feel for them.

Jessica and Simon have a past that caused them both to be hurt in more ways then one. These two had a few things to work out and also an old enemy that doesn’t want to see them together come around. These two go through so many emotions; before they finally clear the air and work everything out. When they finally hook-up again, well the sexy times are sensual, steamy, and romantic. As for our enemy it was rather quick, but you know they will be back.

Their is a prequel, Perfection, for Simon and Jessica. It’s their beginning, before everything went wrong. No, I have not read it. Should you read it before you read Damnation? Well some reviewers say yes, I on the other hand can’t say until I read it, but I felt the story stood on it’s own.

Damnation was a sweet second chance romance that will take you on a whirlwind of emotions, action, suspense, and love that never faded. I highly recommend this new series as well as her Twin Moon Ranch. I can’t wait for the next installment in this series.

  1. The story sounds really good. I haven’t tried any of this authors books. I have a love/hate with spin offs. I always want to read the first series first.

    • Agree with you Tanya. I have trouble with spin-offs too. Some authors can make it work and others you need to read the other series first. The first time I read Anna Lowe I was hooked and I didn’t start the series at the beginning. She has an amazing way of pulling you into the world and characters. I felt she she did a great job pulling off this new series even though it’s a spin off it works as a stand a lone series too. I gives you just the right amount of information to not make you feel like you have to read the other first. Thank’s for checking out my review.
