Fast paced and edgy
Kim keeps having these hot dreams about a man...imagine her surprise when she literally bumps right into him. Erik wants her and knows she's his. Now he just has to convince her that her dreams...aren't just dreams...and he's ready to make them her reality. But his brother has other ideas. This story is sexy, fun and a thrill.

In heat is one of those great easy read romance novels that I finished in an afternoon. I love the fact that Heaton took the typical shapeshifter mating and made it her own. First her shapeshifters or Lycans, they're called both, are immortal. They age differently than humans, at a slower rate. Think dog years in reverse, where thirty four "Lycan years" is around fifty "human years." Once their body matures, the aging process stops. They do not have to change with a full moon and you're either born a Lycan or under very specific conditions can be bitten and turned into one. Heaton's Lycans can also mate with Lycans that are a different animal. Example: Erik's mother was a black panther and his father was a puma. Erik carries the black panther and puma gene, but because the dominant gene in Erik is black panther he can only shift into a black panther. The opposite is true for Erik's brother who can only shift into a puma. It was a brilliant scientific take on how two different breeds of shapeshifters can mate.
Erik has been dreaming of Kim for 27 years. The dreams were infrequent at first and two years ago he started having them every night. Kim started dreaming about Erik a year ago when she went into heat. No it's not the same kind of heat that dog's go into. Other Lycans will be able to tell she's in heat, only her soul mate, Erik, will feel an intense attraction towards her. Kim being in heat is basically her bodies way of saying over here Mr. Dream Man Candy, I want you as much as you want me. The only way for Kim and Erik to complete their mating is for Kim to become a Lycan. The only time that Erik can change her is while she's in heat.
I love the dreams between Erik and Kim. For most of the book, it's the only time that Kim fully embraces her sexuality. Nothing's rushed, no one's drunk and there is no should I or shouldn't I. My favorite reason is that it's usually the only time Erik purrs.
I'm usually a little leery around self published books. I'm not saying that they're all poorly written with huge grammatical errors, there not. There are a huge amount that do, sometimes it's really hard to find a good one. That was not a problem with Felicity Heaton, I struck gold. While there were a couple errors, they were barely noticeable. They did not interfere with reading the book at all. My only complaint is that I wish there was a little more dialogue in In Heat. I'm not saying that the entire book is just sex, it's not. Heaton found that perfect balance between sex and story. There just seems to be a lot of inner thoughts. For example:
He was desperate to feel her mouth against his that a kiss could probably kill him. Even if that were true, he'd still beg her to do it.
Not all of the inner thoughts are that...yummy. Hey, I figure if I'm going to give an example from a book that will make your blood boil, it might as well be one that's not from a sex scene and yet still manages to make you a little warm.
As much as I enjoyed reading In Heat, I just could not give it 4 Moons. It was a fun read, but probably not a reread. That automatically takes In Heat out of the 4 Moons category. It's a harsh system, but it's my system.

I couldn't put it down. Felicity made me fall in love with some
charaters and want to d some damage to others. I do wish there was a
little more danger from Alistair. But the conection between Eric and Kim
gave chills. It did start a little slower but the build and the crash
that it came to I loved. I have started getting into Shifters and this
is one of my faves and I can't wait to read In Heat: Mating Call.

Kim has been having so good dreams. Over this past year her dreams have been getting more intense. Waking up into the real world, she is lonely and unfulfilled. She is all ways thinking of her naughty nightly visits. Kim really just thinks it is her body saying she needs a boyfriend. When she goes to work and meets her demanded boss who is pretends they didn't go to school together and new each other all through school. They are both rushed into a meeting. On the way Kim drops all the paperwork all over the floor. Embarrassed and upset, she starts to pick up the papers. When someone comes up behind her and offers to help, she wants nothing to do with anyone. When she turns and see it is not her boss and that it is the most handsome man she has ever known, she forgets how to talk. She has never seen her dream mans face but she knows he is it. How can that be true? It is just a dream. Eric is a millionaire who is at the firm to get some help with a contract. He sees Kim and knows she is his mate. He also knows she is in heat. How can he be this close to her and not touch her? How can he tell her that he is a shifter without chasing her away? What is my brother doing with this contract? Eric knows he is up to something.
An erotic romance between a human women and a shape shifter. This is a sweet love story. A women who just wants to be loved & cherished and a man who just wants a family & a mate. With the brother and paranormal secrets standing in the way. This is a good easy read, not too deep and not a complicated story line. It has some fighting action and really good sex scenes. You really are rooting for Eric and Kim. The author also does a good job and hiding the brothers true intentions. Good read.
