New Species (3)
Ellora’s Cave Twilight
Kindle E Book
Published September 2011
The moment Valiant see’s Tammy crossing into his territory, he only knows her as His to keep. No matter the cost, he can’t resist tasting her charms, and plans on keeping her for himself, however Tammy isn’t one to just accept being someone else’s pet. Although the passion is heated and explosive and she is drawn to Valiant in a way she doesn’t truly know how to react to, she also realizes she needs more than possession, she needs love and until she has it she refuses to just accept things as is, and escapes and returns to her normal daily life. But when she is kidnapped, because of coming in contact with New Species, Valiant comes to rescue her, and refuses to let her go this time. Tammy starts to realize how much she has missed him and his magical touch, and she knows that she will stay with him no matter what.
The Hero (Valiant)
Valiant, was one of the New Species that suffered more than most, his genes are closer to that of the animal than human, and his features appear more lion, and so those DNA traits are stronger in him than others. When Tammy enters his life, all he wants to do is possess her and keep her and care for her, but he starts to realize that Tammy is the only one that he would sacrifice everything for.
The Heroine (Tammy Shasta)
Tammy, never has experienced so much fear in her 28 years of life until she meets Valiant, however when she is locked inside his cabin for a period of time, she starts to see the true man behind the beast, a man that could love and cherish, however it takes some time before she is able to trust in her instincts and in her heart to know if she truly loves him. When danger comes to take their future away from them both, she will do anything to stay by his side.
Valiant is the third installment in this series, a series I am just starting to get totally hooked on, and in some ways I think I like it way more than the breeds series, I find that there is more of a romance in these, even though its border line erotica, my feeling is that its more toward a romance fiction, and I just love the way the author creates this world, and the characters are so deeply woven in the pages, this reader couldn’t help but just fall madly in love. From the first time I read of Valiant in “Slade” I think I just fell in love with him too!!!~ Valiant is the type of characters that is more Alpha than anything else, he is very loyal and when he makes a commitment to a woman its definitely forever no matter the circumstances. Tammy is the type of heroine that I just love, even though she fears Valiant in the beginning she challenges and defies him, full of courage she doesn’t back down from a fight. I just love that about her, yet there is definitely a gentle nature about her…..and I just loved seeing their romance blossom and was so disappointed when I thought the story ended way too soon for me, I think the pages must have just flown by lol. There was so many things that I loved about this book, and even re read it already because I loved it so much. Five rating for me on this one!!!! Not a thing I can complain about though!!!

New Species (2)
Published Aug 2011
When Trisha first meets Slade, she is his doctor after the new species are first rescued and released, and he promised sensual bliss, but when she see’s him again he doesn’t even remember her. Trisha is more than curious, naturally about new species, and now that she is their Doctor, she never thought that when dealing with Slade he wouldn’t remember his erotic promises to her or that hot searing kiss, but she is determined to make him live up to his promises to her. When Slade and Trisha are thrown together for survival in the wilderness, with men hunting them down, they know they must do whatever they can to survive, and sparks fly and before either of them realizes it they don’t want to let each other go when they reach safety but is there a future in store for them?
Slade, the pain and grief from what both he and his fellow people have suffered is still fresh, and even though they are free, they are always in danger, and when he ends up having to save the doc’s life, he doesn’t know if he can let Trisha go, not after he has only had a small taste of her, and Slade knows that he could never let her go now that he has something to hold onto that is His.
Trisha, is first and foremost a doctor,and loves her work and thrives with the New Species. Despite the danger involved, she has never felt more satisfied with her work, but now she has another complication in her already hectic life…a new species male named Slade. He sends a shiver through her system whenever he is near, and his kiss nearly sends her to her knees but what she fears the most is losing him.
Slade, the second installment in the New Species series, was actually pretty good, not as good as the first, however I did enjoy it to an extent, there were a couple of aspects that I didn’t like, it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing throughout the story, however I really liked the romance that develops and I really soaked up all the action and suspense, which was a lot more than I ever expected. Overall it was a average good romance, scorching bed scenes, but there was also a sense of a solid love story. Even though the blurb says it can be a stand alone series, I would disagree, you lose understanding the back story which I think is vital from what I have read so far. Overall a good read, but it did drag a bit in the middle however it picked up later where I felt I could get more into the story. Other than that I would say it would be a good romance. I probably won’t re read this but I am glad that I did read it…..A average good romance that you can be content with on a certain level.
