Midnight Moaning Collection


Hello readers.

Midnight Moanings Collection is a collection of story that I quite literally wrote after midnight, when the stories seem to find me.  They can be about a missing family member, falling in love with a construction worker, the heroine finding her father’s killer, waking in a strangers bed, any number of things.  It’s the name of the line of stories. They were intended to be stand alone books, but readers began requesting stories for the secondary characters.  (Author blushing) I’ll try and make it easy to find if it should be read in a certain order.

Stroll through my library and pick up something that catches your eye. In 2014 you will be able to purchase the book directly from my site as well as the etailer stores.

Happy Reading.

Next coming release.



A portrait brings them together, but secrets will pull the apart.

A portrait will bring them together. When the truth is revealed will love be enough to keep together?


Volume I
Volume I




If going to work with the flu wasn’t bad enough, Kenya finds herself waking in a strange man’s bed.  With a giant bulldog standing guard over her, she struggles to get her bearings.

“You called my service.”

“And what service is that?”

“Let’s just say I’m a friend of the court.”


Sometimes the problem is it’s own solution. She will have to look deeper than the surface.

“The Man He’ll Never Be”




Goodreads. 25 ratings 3.80 rating

Secrets left with the truth produce lies

The bra and gold lipstick case in his duffle should have tipped her off. Or the fact Patrick ate the turkey bacon just to get her to go home. She needed answers, and from the looks of things, more than one, but she had a right to know who killed her father and if her adoptive dad wouldn’t tell her, she’d find out on her own. 
Years after her father’s death, Lena (aka Marlena) was still searching for the killer. There was one man who could help her, but her every effort was. When three men from her past shed light on her world, the relationship she cherished the most came to a screeching halt. 
Dillon gave his life to keep his mother save from abuse—done things he wasn’t proud of to give her security and peace of mind. His family’s safety cost him the best friendship he had ever known. With a second chance to get her back, he’ll face every demon from his past to ensure she’s a part of his future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new favorite author in the genre November 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I’m always on the look out for new IR writers and I found a gem in Cora Blu’s The Man He’ll Never Be. There’s a little bit of everything, mystery, family drama and humor. Lena is driven and determined and Dillon is a hero you can fall in love with. I have a new auto-buy writer.

Stranded but not Alone (Midnight Moanings Collection)


From Askdavid.com

 Exceptional Romance Novel

Reading romance novels have been something I have done a very long time. I had stopped for awhile for the story telling was not as romantic and did not keep my attention. Reading “Stranded but,not Alone” has rekindled my love for romance novels. I was so into this book I wanted to have Seth for myself. He’s adventurous, caring and besides good looking his silver tongue can’t be ignored. Simone was such a real women in this book and her and Seth attraction with each other was very intriguing. The plot in the book was something that I could picture on the big screen. I loved reading this book and will absolutely read it again. Romance novel lovers, this book is perfect for you. You will want more of Seth and Simone! [by living heavenly]

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, Awesome!!!!!, November 18, 2012
This review is from: Stranded but not Alone (Midnight Moanings Collection) (Kindle Edition)

Mrs Cora Blue, this book was so great! From start to finished I love how the heroin was smart resourceful and not your dimsel in stress. This is a great read I hope there’s a sequel for the twin brother. I wished I could give more stars truly a keeper!!!!!


5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!,, November 14, 2012



I was pulled in from the moment I opened this book. I loved how Cora jumped into the story and didn’t drag the beginning out for ages. I loved the characters, I felt them and they sunk into me. I truly couldnt get enough of this book and have now started reading the first book in her Brothers of element series. Well done to a great writer!













I loved hosting September’s newsletter contest. Don’t forget to sign up and receive the on going story of Oliver and Sadie. She’s from the fifties, but he’s not.


Check out scenes one and two here in the August newsletter.

Fantasy winner. The answer was “Pe’lonia” Dagger’s mother.


The white stove never stood a chance with Sadie in the kitchen.
Every burner going, the oven as well. One hour before the party and the
big country kitchen smelled of baked goods and roasted ham. But little
Timothy still hadn’t moved away from the warm biscuits. Sadie stood,
hands on her lean hips and wiped at her apron. She couldn’t let him see
how much it warmed her heart to see him eat. She may have been the
maid, but no one treated her as such.
“Timothy, sweetheart, that is the last biscuit tonight. You get right
upstairs and wash for bed.”
“Timothy James Edwards, I don’t have time for you to try and
sweet talk me tonight young man. This house is going to be full of hungry
guest and your momma is expecting food to be on the table on time…
now get. I’ll be up to check on you soon as this other batch of biscuits is
“Yes ma’am.” Slow as a snail on crutches, Timothy inched his way
up the creaky back stairs. The love between the two was evident in the
slow grin that eased across his little buttery face…

Heat level 3-4 GRAPHIC SCENES.

Simone Daniels should have known something was wrong when Ronald kept his suit jacket on. He never lounged after work with his Armani suits on. It did not take long for him to break her heart.

Four months later at the urging of her best friend Kim, she embarked on a two-week vacation to Austria. Having lost her baby, she needed time away. She never saw the adventure coming. Now all she wants is to get back to America.
Seth Dragoslava would find his twin brother, stolen from his parents thirty years ago from a Russian hospital, if it kills him. Never having his mother’s full attention growing up in Russia as she mourned his twin, all he wants is to give her closer one way or another. In the mountains of Austria, he’s tracked down the family. Only someone does not want him to find his brother.
When these two find themselves stranded in the mountains, will they survive the flying bullets, hungry wolves or each other’s attraction long enough to make it back to the hotel alive? When he finds his brother, will he have another wolf licking its lips at the beautiful American by his side that he cannot shake from his mind? Alternatively, has their adventure just begun?

 Enjoy, Cora Blu

  1. I loves Stranded but not Alone, so much That I read it twice. Please tell when the next book in the series will be released.. I hope that it will be Mihkl’s story.

  2. Snap!! I love that you read it twice. Midnight Moanings is a collection of interracial stories, not a series. Although I have been requested numerous times to make it a series. I have an underwater series, Brothers of Element. That is an underwater tigershark shifter series. That may be hotter than what you’re looking for. I will have another story from the collections soon I think you’ll like. Mikhail will get a story, soon.
    If you have a moment a review on Amazon would be wonderful. I appreciate the love you shared for my story.
    Sincerely, Cora Blu

  3. I would love to finish reading you called me. I have the sample from Amazon but I can not seem to get it from Amazon

  4. I loved you called me! I can’t wait till the next book is released do you have a specific date the sooner the better thanks.

  5. I just completed volume I in the Blakemore Series & I enjoyed it tremendously!!! I know you have a release date of June 30th for volume II & are independent but I was wondering if you have a date for electronic release? I certainly hope it is available if not before than at least by the aforementioned date. Thank you & keep up the good works!!!

  6. Hi, Tonya. I’m happy you like volume I. The 30th is the tentative release date for the electronic version. It’s not in paperback yet. I’m thinking of releasing it in that form after all three books are out as a collection. I appreciate the great reception this story has received. 🙂 Join my newsletter, if you haven’t, for upcoming contests and giveaways.
    Sincerely, Cora Blu

  7. Cora, I just finished volume I in the Blakemore Series and enjoyed it so much I went back and purchased all of your other books on amazon. I am looking forward reading them while waiting for the release of volume II.

  8. The outpouring of love for this serial is humbling, seriously. I hope you enjoy the others as much as I enjoyed writing them. Volume II is scheduled for the 30th, may be the first as that’s a better release date as far as things being updated. Thank you again. 🙂

  9. I loved the first two books in the moaning series. Read them both in one day.Great writing great stories. When will the third book be released Stand By Me?

  10. Hi, Catherine. That’s kind of you to let me know you enjoyed the books. And wow!, to reading them both in one day. Book III, we’re looking at the middle of August. I’m blown away that people are even finding it as I haven’t really advertised it.
    Sign up for the newsletter and you’ll get notice when it comes out. Have a great evening.
    Sincerely, Cora Blu

  11. Hi Cora, I love your books. Just wanted to know, which book is considered volume 1 of the midnight moaning collections?

  12. Hi, Aurleann. Thanks for loving my books, it means a lot. My Midnight Moaning Collection is the name of my Contemporary line. The only books that are related are “You Called Me” Volume I and “Wait For Me” Volume II. Stranded but not Alone and The Man He’ll Never Be are stand alone titles. although after over forty requests, Mikhail from Stranded will have a book out this Fall titled “Threat”
    Again, thank you. Cora Blu

  13. Just read Blakemore Vol I and II in less than two days. I am ready for the third. I can’t wait to get back to the office to tell the girls that they need to read the Blakemore volumes. I have really enjoyed reading your books. I will be reading your other books soon. Thank you.

  14. Thank you, Sonya. I love that you enjoyed their love story. The last installment will be out before the end of the month.
    If you have a moment, leave reviews where you made your purchase, as it’s the way my stories become more visible for other readers.
    I hope you enjoy volume III.
    Sincerely, Cora BLu

  15. Hi, just read bothe if the Blakemore volumes and I must say, wonderful job. My mother is hooked as well. Can’t wait for Stand by Me…

  16. Hi, Shaniqua
    I appreciate the love from both you and your mother. I don’t have family support as a writer, so it’s cool to hear of mothers and daughters reading my stories. Stand By Me is scheduled to come out in the next couple weeks. I hope you left a positive review wherever you purchased your copies. Reviews are crucial to authors. Thank you both again.

  17. Finished it in two days….Loved it!!!!! Can’t wait to write the review. Now we a sequel, Jaime Blakemore & Julia’s story.

  18. Read and re-read the Blakemore series volume l & ll, how do I get volume lll.. love you writing and can’t wait for more!!!

    Have a great evening.
    Sincerely, Cora Blu

  20. I just finished reading stand by me and all I can say is wow! I loved how the series came full circle. one minute I was laughing the next minute I was scared to death of Brian and his goons! the characters were so strong I loved Kenya and the amount of strength she had when came to Jonathan were can I find my Irishmen lol! You are a great author and I am so glad to have come across your work. looking forward to the next great story!

  21. Hi, Michelle. Thank you for hanging in there. I’m working toward the end of June. Its quite a big book because I didn’t want any cliffhangers in this volume.
    I hope you like it.

    Cora Blu

  22. Ms. Blu, hope all is well with you and yours. Just checking on when you will be releasing the next Blakemore book. I have read all the other Blakemore books at least four time a piece. Thank you.

    1. Hi, Deborah. All is well in the Blu household. I’m so thankful you enjoy my work.
      Outside of this summer, I don’t have an exact release date for this next book. I’m working on this and my underwater shifter series at the same time. I will announce it the moment the book is released. I hope you enjoy Jamie and Julia’s story.

        1. Hi, Deborah.
          Health is delaying the release of my work. I’ll be recovering the month of December from major surgery, but once I’m up and mobile, I’m back in the game.
          I hope you’re still around when I get this work into circulation.

          1. I pray you feel better. Take time to take care of yourself. I’m not going anywhere. I can’t wait to read Julia and Jamie’s story.

  23. I’m wondering if you will have any more books from the Brothers of Element series? I feel like they just stopped.. Really enjoyed those books.. Great work

  24. Hi, Lelia. I appreciate you enjoyed my brothers of element series. Dagger was my baby. Unfortunately, I had a medical setback placing my writing on the back burner. I’m not done with the guys yet. I will have a follow up book for Ridge at the beginning of the year, because I had a number of readers request I tell what happened with Svetlana, Ridge, and Logan. I think you will love it. It also helps others find my books if you leave a review wherever you purchase the books. Thank you so much for your support.

  25. I do hope that you are feeling better. I know you have been having some personal issues (health) but do you have a date in mind for the latest Blakemore book?

    1. How did I miss this? I had surgery in February with two month recovery time. I’m happy to say I’m recovering well and if Jamie and Julia stop fighting me, I can finish this book. I’m glad my readers are still out there. 🌹😆🏨📚

      Writing now, Cora Blu

  26. I loves all your books and have read them twice. I was so excited when I heard about you writing again. I pray that everything is will with you now and will continue.

    Have a bless day!
