On Friday, I finished writing Seth (A Dark Assassins World Novella Book 2.5) and sent it to my editor so she could do her magic. My Dark Assassins world is completely different from anything out there. The vampires and shifters in my books work together as government assassins, but they are also as close as most families. While in Kai and Reaper, the two assassins from book one and two, they found their mates to be human, while Seth is a human who meets his vampire mate. Seth will be released on Valentine’s Day 2017.
Because I was in the paranormal frame of mind, I have chosen to share another author with very original ideas in the paranormal romance genre.
Her New Species Series follows humans who had been experimented on by splicing human and animal DNA, and creating new beings called new species. They are freed from captivity and set up in a new facility where they are protected and form their own government and way of life. Below are three books that I highly recommend.
Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments. Company scientists have spliced human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such “experiment” captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him—even if he hates her for it.
Fury has never known compassion or love. He’s spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. Now he’s free and set on vengeance. He vows to end her life but when she’s finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.
Fury can’t resist Ellie—the touch of her hands, her mouth on his skin, her body wrapped around his. He’s obsessed with the scent of his woman. And Ellie wants Fury—always has. She craves his big, powerful body and wants to heal his desolate heart.
But loving Fury is one thing…taming him is another.
My Rating and Review
This is an original book that I became fascinated with from page one. Ellie was a refreshing heroine, who put her life in danger to keep others safe, time and time again. Fury was a wonderfully written alpha male, and the two of them made a fantastic couple. The book kept me intrigued throughout and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series! Absolutely Stunning!!
Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver—but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man Trisha will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland…he doesn’t even remember her!
The nosy new doctor wants to know all about the breeding habits between humans and Species. Slade proposes a hands-on education but she’s not interested in a one-night stand. He can’t offer more because he’s haunted by the memory of a woman he once tried to claim. He’s shocked when he realizes they are one and the same. He’s blown it—she’ll never give him a chance now.
But, when her life is in danger, he’s the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.
My Rating and Review
Another wonderful book, my 2nd, from Laurann Dohner. She writes heroines as strong and capable of taking care of themselves as they are others, and heroes that are the definition of alpha males, with strong protective instincts, and they will fight for who and what they want. Slade and Trisha are great for each other, and I can’t wait for more of the New Species Series!!
Tammy has always tried to be prepared for any calamity life might send her way, but a sexy, lion man-beast is way outside the norm. He’s huge, has the most exotic, golden cat-eyes she’s ever seen—and she’s so terrified of him, she’s speechless for the first time in her life. He’s stalking closer, growling at her, and she’s too unnerved to even flee.
Valiant has always hated humans. But when he gets a whiff of the adorable human female who has invaded his territory, he’s forced to reexamine his feelings on the matter. Her fear scents of pure, sweet temptation and the closer he gets, the more appealing she becomes. Once he’s got his hands on her, he isn’t about to let go. One thought will change his life. MINE!
Before Tammy can regain her senses, she’s flat on her back in Valiant’s bed. Now he just has to use every inch of his big, buff body to convince her to stay with him forever.
My Rating and Review
Another wonderful read! Valiant and Tammy’s relationship started quickly, but throughout, Valiant’s feelings for Tammy never changed. Tammy, learning to trust after being hurt in the past, realized that Valiant is the perfect man for her. It’s a very fast-paced story, some violence against Tammy, and very big and protective Alpha, who is willing to do anything to keep her by his side. A must read!!
