Southern Arcana, Book 5
Sera Sinclaire is a New Orleans rarity: a submissive coyote trapped in a town overrun by dominant shapeshifters. Worse, she lacks the willpower to deny the alphas-in-shining-armor who need her soothing presence, even when their protectiveness threatens to crush her hard-won self-reliance.
The only shifter she doesn’t want to push away is Julio Mendoza, a wolf so dominant he’s earned a place on the Southeast council.
Julio doesn’t have the luxury of indulging in the vacation his psychic shrink insists he needs. He can’t turn his back on responsibilities he’s beginning to wish he’d never shouldered. When an obsessive ex endangers Sera, though, instinct drives him to get her out of town. Watching her come to life outside the city makes him feel like he’s finally done something right, and her touch ignites desire he doesn’t want to ignore.
But soon, lighthearted flirting becomes a dangerous game of seduction, where every day spent falling into each other is another day avoiding the truth. Sera’s ex isn’t the only one who’d disapprove of their relationship. There are wolves who would kill to get Sera out of Julio’s life—starting with his own blood kin.
Warning: Contains endless summer road trips, family drama, redneck werewolves, sexual power games and a taboo love affair between a submissive coyote who’s among the last of her kind and a dominant wolf who loves his heroine’s ass. Literally.

Impulse is the fifth book in Moira Rogers Southern Arcana series, and all the components one expects from this series are present.
Sera Sinclaire is New Orleans’ lone submissive coyote, surrounded by dominant shapeshifters of all kinds, who would love to make her theirs, if only temporarily. Her submissive nature is absolutely necessary to help sooth all the discomforts that come with being so very alpha. Julio Mendoza is the ultimate hot alpha male, so dominant that he has earned himself a seat on the Southeast council. He needs what Sera has, even if he doesn’t want to take it. So when the two of them decide to take a road trip together, the sparks are already flying off the pages.
Impulse is sexy and fun, a little lighter, I felt, than the previous books. There was not a lot of internal conflict, as the hero and heroine were wayyyyy in to one another by the time Impulse starts. That led for some smoldering sex scenes right off the bat. We’ve watched Sera and Julio interact previously, and I thoroughly enjoyed them coming together. Moira Rogers does a fantastic job writing the ultimate hot alpha male. Julio is the most alpha, and Sera is the most submissive, and together they made hot smexy times. It’s the perfect partnering and I enjoyed every hot steamy scene.
The external conflict was pretty awesome, I love the politics and regime changes that are continuously going on. The series setting has become pretty complex, and kept my interest up, especially waiting to see when Sera’s ex-husband would pounce in to the scenario. Because of the extensive world building and characters that have been developed over the previous 4 books, Impulse *could* be read standalone, but I really really recommend your starting from the beginning. Pick this series up for a consistently smokin hot time!
