Overview

Book 9 in the New Species series. While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come from reading them in series order. Beauty resents being labeled Gift Species. Everyone is way too overprotective, males aren’t even allowed to speak to her and so far true freedom eludes her. Then a big, sexy Species officer mistakes her for the enemy and takes her to the ground. Shadow is dumbfounded. He has a Gift pinned under him—a big no-no. But Beauty is fascinated and wants to know Shadow a lot better. She is full of newly discovered, unrequited passion and he’s just what she needs to satisfy her curiosity. For Shadow, sex means pain and revulsion. For Beauty, it was enslavement and ridicule. Two lonely souls who have never known a lover’s touch, together in a cabin in the woods. Each touch, every discovery brings them closer to a life they never thought possible…beyond even their dreams. Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes - no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

I so do love this series by Laurann Dohner. She puts a different spin on the characters and what they go through. Even tho they could be read as stand alone I would recommend you read them all in order as the characters do carry over some at times. I enjoyed Shadow's story and hope she continues to write about the battles they all face and they try and reach for acceptance and find love along the way.

If only Ms. Dohner, one of my favorite authors, could write books as quickly as I can read them, I would be in heaven. The New Species series is so real and consistent and believable. Lots of hot alpha males and the women that fall in love with them, and all are very different so it doesn't get boring. Good job!

Have read every book she's written, only complaint is she doesn't write fast enough. Hot with wonderful characters, whom you'll fall in love with.

A little too much sex. I would have liked a little more story. And more progression. But still the writing sucks you in.

Can't wait for the next book...love this series.  It's been along time since I have read a series that once the book comes out I don't even read what it is about, I just buy and start reading.

Reviewed by: Crystal Book provided by: Publisher Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Every time I read one of the New Species books I get two feelings. The first feeling is excitement and a huge thrill. I am so happy to get my hands on the new book. I know that Laurann will be bringing me more into the New Species world. I will be getting to meet more Species and getting to know their stories. I love getting to look back at the other New Species that I have read about and seeing how things are going. The other feeling I get is knowing that I will soon reach the end of the book and will be on pins and needles. I’ll be wondering who will be next or is this the last one and I hope that it doesn’t happen anytime soon. So, I made myself read this story really slow since I didn’t want the story to be over too soon. I already knew the backgrounds for both Shadow and Beauty and was happy to see these two put together. They both had past sexual experiences that were negative and I believe that they were put together because of that. I am, however, worried about Moon and I hope that they find a way to help him.

I love this series! This book set up so many of the characters from the other books to have their story told, yet it doesn't interfer with the overall story of Shadow and Beauty. Can't wait for the next one!

I absolutely love this author! New Species is similiar to Lora Leigh's Breed series. I truly adore this whole series. You can read them separately as individual stories or read them as a series. All the characters are unique with obstacles to overcome. From the first page, you are in and want to read the whole book.

Beauty feels stuck in a cage even after she is freed. She a Gift Feamale who wants to move on with life after captivitaty, but is running the best answer to getting away. She is seen by a patrol and he makes chase. They didn't know that a lighting flash would change so many things for them both. This is another great book by Laurann.

Loved this story. It was nice to read a story with a New Species couple. This was more romantic to me and I enjoyed reading it. Still nice and hot, but more romantic. I can't wait to read the next one. I hope it's another New Species couple. Vengeance hopefully.

This whole series has warmed me from the inside out. Laurann Dohner has done an excellent job creating a world with characters that are easy to fall in love with. Each book in this series connects the reader to a new protagonist. Each book can be read on its own but I recommend reading in sequence. Each book gives the reader enough information to allow being read on its own, but book 1 builds the background and goes in deeper depth about the background of these people. I highly recommend this book with fuzzy slippers and a warm blanket.

I have read and loved all of Ms. Dohner books. Beauty's love story is different from her previous story but in a delightful way, a soft easing into a wonderful life together. I fell in love with Beauty and Shadow, they discover each other and find a love filled with kindness,curiosity and a chance to find soul deep happiness. I would recommend this story to all fans of Ms. Dohner's books or those who have yet to discover this great story series.
