Selena: Welcome, Moira and thanks for sharing your thoughts and the giveway. If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
Moira: Do I have to choose just one? I think the two biggest would be Laurell K Hamilton and Vicki Pettersson. Laurell’s work is amazing. I fell in love with her Anita Blake series pretty early on. Then she came out with the Mery Gentry series and lets just say my inner fan girl went all crazy (in a good way of course). Vicki is a fellow Las Vegan and her story is just an inspiration to me. Please. Who wouldn’t want to look up to a Vegas Showgirl turned NYT bestselling Urban Fantasy author?
Selena: What kind of reader will enjoy Blood and Moonlight – Moonlight Trilogy Book One?
Moira: Anyone! Isn’t that the right answer? Honestly? I think Blood and Moonlight is a good story for anyone who is a fan of urban fantasy, likes a good dose of romance, and a little edge of your seat suspense and action. In my humble opinion, it has all three.
Selena: What do you love most about her hero in this book?
Moira: Devlin McClure, ahh what can I say about that man? What I love most… the sense of mystery to him. He has a past that has really impacted his sense of loyalty. But Devlin’s past is only briefly touched on in this book and there is so much more too him.
Selena: What will readers love most about the heroine in this book?
Moira: Hopefully they can relate to her. For me, Kiara Morrigan O’Conaill is a woman who has endured so much in her life. She feels outcast and while she may try to make everyone believe she is okay with that, she really struggles because she isn’t sure who she is. The best part of her character is the journey she takes in realizing and accepting who and what she is.
Selena: During your research for this book, anything happen that you’d like to share?
Moira: I’ve always been a bit infatuated with faeries which led to an Irish and Scottish obsession. Faeries are present in many cultures, but it was the Celtic stories that really lured me in. Researching things for this book only served to deepen that love and desire to explore more. A trip to Ireland and Scotland is now on my bucket list (along with a lot more research into the history and mythology of both).
Though she shares the bloodlines of both Fae and Wolf, Kiara Morrigan O’Conaill refuses to claim her place in the Fae courts or submit to the animal within. Witnessing the murder of her Fae mother two years ago drives her back into those worlds, to search for answers and revenge.
Devlin McClure lives for one thing—the Pack. When their leader, the Cadeyrn, disappears, desperation sends Devlin to the last person he should be asking for help—the Cadeyrn’s estranged daughter, Kiara.
Kiara and Devlin are drawn to each other by fate and destined to embrace the very thing that threatens to rip their worlds apart. Now, Kiara will have to decide which is stronger, blood or moonlight?
