Publisher's Summary

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 with 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?

First audiobook

If you could sum up Twice in a Blue Moon in three words, what would they be?

Fun, witty characters

Any additional comments?

As my first audiobook, I had no idea what to expect. I will be honest in saying, I thought that the voices of the guys would be narrated by a guy. At first it was very strange to listen to a female 'trying' to sound like a guy. Once I was past that, the rest was smooth sailing. Both stories were enjoyable and the characters were fun to get to know. Each kind of quirky in their own way. It's great for fans of shifter romances!

Damnation
Second chances at happily ever after. With a past better left in the past, Jessica Macks finds herself faced with a past she rather forget, Simon Voss. A wolf and a bear will never work out.

Temptation
Love is blossoming but when it is with a human...Janna Macks is a wolf shifter who finds herself falling for sexy cowboy Cole Harper. But what happens when the unexpected occurs, Jenna wolf is crying out that Cole is her mate.

I voluntarily reviewed Twice in a Blue Moon as a gifted copy from the author.

Great series

DAMNATION....
She-wolf Jessica Macks and bear shifter Simon Voss has a past that left them both hurting and with a broken heart. But what will their future bring now that fate has brought them together again? You'll have to read the book to find out.

TEMPTATION.....
Wolf shifter Janna Macks and human Cole Harper have pack problems and rouges to over come to if they are to be together. Love this story. Love spunky Janna and sexy Cole.

Ms Lowe's characters are such fun to get to know. They are witty, strong, funny, brave and off the charts sexy. I highly recommend this and all her books.

Love this series!!!

Would you listen to Twice in a Blue Moon again? Why?

Yes, I would. I enjoyed both stories, and the narrator did wonderful. Plus, I love shifters!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Twice in a Blue Moon?

In the first book, Damnation, I loved how much Simon felt for Jessica. I love second chance romances, so Damnation was my favorite of the 2 books, but both books were great!

Which scene was your favorite?

All of the romance scenes! Also, I love how badass Jessica and Janna are! They kicked some butt!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it definitely was!

Any additional comments?

The narrator was excellent! She had a wonderful tone to her voice, and I enjoyed the listening experience! Below is a review for each of the books individually beginning with the first in the series -

Damnation -

Loved this! Second chance romance with shifters, I'm all on board for that! Jessica and her sister, Janna, are starting new at the Blue Moon Saloon after their whole pack was wiped out by Rogue shifters. They are wolf shifters, and Jessica is very thankful to have found a place at the Blue Moon, but when she finds out her new boss is a past lover, she isn't too happy, but there isn't anywhere else for her and her sister to go, so Jessica is going to have to just deal with it. Jessica was deeply hurt by Simon when he broke things off with her without much explanation, and finds it difficult to be in his presence; especially since her wolf wants her mate, and Jessica is still affected by being near Simon. Simon is a bear shifter, and he can't believe it when Jessica walks into the Saloon; his bear growls mate and wants to make her his, but Simon hurt Jessica when he broke it off, so his bear is just going to have to wait. I love that there is POV's from both Jessica and Simon! Jessica is a strong and intelligent woman, and I really felt for her, when she lost her pack and when Simon turned her away. The romance is so sweet and wonderful, and Simon was adorable! I love that he rubs up on stuff! I know that sounds a bit weird, but it's a shifter story, so I think it fits. I love that he is a bit of a gruff bear, but his soft side comes out with Jessica. I also like that we get some action scenes, and I really enjoyed the writing! I also loved all the side characters, and I am super excited to read each of their books! This is a great shifter read, and I'm definitely looking forward to more from Anna Lowe!!

Temptation -

I'm really loving this series! In this book, we get Janna's story, who is Jessica's sister from the first book, and we get to see how Janna and Cole's story unfolds. You should read the first book in this series, or there will be some spoilers in this book for that book, and Janna and Cole are introduced in the first book, but I suppose it isn't completely necessary, but I think it adds to the enjoyment of this book; plus that book is awesome too! Janna and her sister have found a new home at the Blue Moon Saloon with the 2 were-bears, Simon and Soren, and Janna is feeling a strong attraction towards a regular at the Saloon. Cole is a sexy cowboy with something in his past that is eating away at him, and on top of that, he is starting to feel and hear strange things, and his feelings for Janna have turned animalistic. Janna's wolf is also feeling animalistic towards Cole, but she doesn't understand it because Cole is human, and on top of her wolf acting weird, there is the threat of the Rogues. The Rogues don't believe in mixing shifters, and they definitely don't want shifters and humans mixing. First off, I enjoyed the chemistry between Cole and Janna, and I found Cole to be adorable. I like Janna too, but I definitely think she should have made it more of a priority to talk with Cole; that made me think of her as a bit more ditzy then I had thought previously, so I was a bit disappointed in that, but for the most part, I liked her. The story is interesting, and I liked the flow of the story. I'm excited to read the next book in the series, even if I don't really like the premise; I wanted more for Soren, so I'm disappointed with what I know so far, but since I loved the first 2 books and enjoy Anna Lowe's writing, I'm giving it a chance. Plus, I'm very interested in Soren! Looking forward to more of him, and more of the main couples from books 1 and 2!

Wonderfully Exciting

This is the first two stories in a really good series. It deals not only with shifters but with extreme racism between shifters, there is a group who are killing whole shifter settlements because their lines are not being kept pure.

In the first book DAMNATION Jessica and her sister Janna, wolf shifters, are drawn by destiny towards the The Twin Moon Ranch, it belongs to a pack of wolves run the by Alpha Ty Hawthorn and his family (A great series by the way which starts with Desert Moon) after their whole pack was murdered by the Blue Blood rogue wolves. Twin Moon Pack take them in and arrange for them both to have jobs and a place to stay at The Blue Moon Saloon. There is only one problem with this as far as Jessica is concerned the saloon is run by two brothers, bear shifters, Simon and Sorin Voss. Simon being the bear shifter who deserted Jessica years ago leaving her with a broken heart.

Both the Voss brothers are here at Blue Moon Saloon because the same group of rogues murdered their family and burnt their village killing everyone but them, Sorin's mate was also killed. So the stage is set, each of these four lost souls are trying to make new lives in new surroundings after suffering devastating losses.

At first the atmosphere between Jessica and Simon is very tense but eventually they begin to connect again and the true reason why Simon gave Jessica up comes to light. The story is both moving and exciting and has lots of action. The descriptive writing of Anna Lowe really brought the area to life for me. I could close my eyes and see the colours of the desert! Unfortunately they not only have to work at their relationship they still have the Blue Bloods to contend with as they have found them again.

In the second book TEMPTATION we have the story of Janna, her story involves a human
Cole Harper, he came to their aid in the first book and was infected by the werewolf blood and is now turning into a wolf. He and Janna were drawn to each other from the start, in fact the reason he was in the Blue Moon when he was injured was to see Janna.

Cole begins to think he is going mad when strange things are happening in his head and his abilities seem to be changing, he can hear so much better for one thing, smell much better for another. He has no idea what is happening he thinks he is going mad. Meanwhile Janna knows he is her mate and tries to help him adjust and survive the Change, which is not always possible it will take a very special human to do this.

The Blue Bloods make another appearance to complicate matters and nothing can be taken for granted.

Both these books are wonderfully well written by Anna and the narration by Kelsey Osborne is exceptional. I loved these stories and have no hesitation in recommending them.

Matched Set Winners!!!

Damnation:
Very well written! First, if you haven't got this yet, you may want to get the prequel to this which is titled "Perfection"...you get an inside look at how Jessica and Simon met and what went on before. This was a great story, with characters that could step out and walk among you. Plots (and there are a few) were very thought provoking. Jessica and Simon are both Stubborn people, and both trying not to give up their inner-self to anyone. Their in common past leads to a love that should have been...only to meet with much resistance alone the way. Caution...Don't Poke The Bear.

Temptation:
Yum Yum Yum...you just wanna plow through this one! I Loved it!!! What I liked first about this story was that it wasn't your normal shifter story...Shifter is female and the Human was male. Which in turn leads to much laughter on Cowboy Cole's part , poor guy thought he was loosing his mind: First gets scratched by a wolf, then gets a wolf itch hard to scratch. Janna doesn't make it easy for him either. You get great scenarios where you cant help but get pulled in: The Bar fight, The Bull fight.... don't wait dive in.

Shifters Rule!!!

This was a first for me from Anna Lowe. I loved these two stories and look forward to reading the rest of this series. I am totally hooked. The storyline is great. Several types of shifters and how they relate to each other and how their mates are destined to be together. Each novel is a standalone with a HEA, but once you meet the individuals you'll want to read or listen to all about them. I received this two book set as an audible trial.

Enchanting voice & great story line

If you could sum up Twice in a Blue Moon in three words, what would they be?

Great series intro

What did you like best about this story?

Loved the fact that this is a spin off to the Twin Moon Ranch series.

Have you listened to any of Kelsey Osborne’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I love Kelsey's voice. It really suits Anna Lowe's writing and I can hear her when I read it myself!

Any additional comments?

Sizzling hot, action packed with just the right amount of description that kept me hooked even though I read the books as well before.
