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 down-literally.

Shadow is dumbfounded. He has a Gift pinned beneath him-a big no-no. But Beauty is fascinated and wants to know Shadow a lot better. She's full of newly discovered, unrequited passion and he's just what she needs to satisfy her curiosity.

For Shadow, sex means pain and loathing. For Beauty, enslavement and ridicule. Two lonely souls who have never known a loving touch, together in a cabin in the woods. Every caress, every discovery brings them closer to a life they never thought possible . . . beyond even their wildest dreams.

    Loved this book read it in one sitting almost. Shadow and Beauty were a very different couple as Beauty is also species one of the gift females. I loved the way she learned to stand up for what she wanted which happened to be Shadow. Loved this book keep them coming Laurann.

    Wonderful read!

    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.

    Great Series

    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!

    Though slower in pacing, I found that I enjoyed several elements of this book, the budding romance between Beauty and Shadow my favorite ~ Under the Covers

    Beauty is a Gift, which means that she is treated with the utmost respect and reverence. Many give her a wide berth because they know of her traumatic past. As a survivor of a brutal captivity, Beauty shows her strength in a way that is quiet, but very much noticeable and admirable. I really liked Beauty’s character because even though she is scared beyond her wits, she is still able to keep her head on straight. I loved the way she was able to stand up to certain people when they simply judged her wrongly. Despite the fact that she was a victim, she doesn’t allow that to simply run her life anymore.

    Shadow is the New Species male who is now protecting her. After spending one night lying next to her during a storm Shadow and Beauty share an unbreakable bond now that Dohner takes and builds upon that.

    Though slower in pacing, I found that I enjoyed several elements of this book, the budding romance between Beauty and Shadow my favorite. The one thing that dropped this book down from a solid four star rating was simply the pacing. Some scenes dragged on for too long for me and I think it impeded the natural progression of the story. Also, I felt like there was less action than the book prior to this.

    This was another great book to the New Species series! It has a nice twist to having now two Species find each other and love. Shadow is the best friend of Wrath who both came from the same testing compound. Beauty is a Gift, and not as shy and timid as her fellow Gift Species. She wants what all the other female Species want, companionship, love, and to have more freedom then the stronger Species allow.Enters Shadow, who makes Beauty see another side of herself, a side she wants to explore.....
