Book four of the ONLY HUMAN series...
Kirsten negotiated for what she hopes will be two glorious hours with Xaephan, but the Lord of Lust has his own ideas of how the afternoon will transpire, and the consequences of their evening are long lasting.
Her deal with Ryan means she must go to Africa to help guard gazelles for a week. She trains for the event, but her preparation doesn't cover the Strigorii vampires who have their eye on her. Since she broke up with Abbott, gaining control of her will be like hanging a sign saying they're more powerful than The Abbott without having to actually fight him.
Throw in complications with Nathan and a few battles with her old enemy Aquila, and Kirsten doesn't know whether she's coming or going. She wants peace and quiet with her daughter, but is it possible? Is she too embroiled in supernatural politics to live a normal life? Kirsten feels as if she's become a game piece in a sick game of chess, and she wants off the board.

Just when you think you've seen it all, Candace pulls out another book and spanks up with it, right where it sizzles the most !!!! this book is so much action, drama, politics, and cute antics (if you can call moody shifters cute hihihih) and then there is love ! some dreams were worth the wait and this book is a typical Candace tease (!! no spoilers from me, read the books!!) the books keeps you on your toes and you get the front row seat to the unfolding drama that is ongoing. so, as simple as A-B-C, get the books, read them in order and you will see for yourself why this is a HIT !!! #mustread #reread4sure #strongfemale #bustingballsandtakingnames
Have you read the first three books? If not I recommend that you read them first so you can understand the relationships in this book. Going to read it anyway? The first thing you need to know is that Kirsten is a masochist. She sexualizes pain. Her kink is not my kink but as long as it is consensual I can enjoy her enjoyment and boy does she enjoy. The second thing you need to know is that despite being born human Kirsten has gifts that the paranormals want to own or destroy. The third thing you need to know is that Kirsten has some very powerful friends. But most of all what you need to know is that Kirsten is strong and getting stronger and she will be no-ones prize. This book is filled with angst, adventure and really hot sex. Kirsten is in some really hot water this time and it will change friends and alliances. A hot, exciting read. The previous books in this series: Only Human (Only Human #1) An Unhuman Journey (Only Human #2) Of Humans and Monsters (Only Human, #3) If you want to take a shortcut or learn more about Nathan you can read Pride
Well! What a fierce book! Although it is clearly a logical extension of the first three books (which you definitely should read before this one) it takes some really unexpected turns. Even more than the first three in the series, the story line is edge-of-the-seat exciting/scary! At one level, I really loved this, but not all of the plot turns made me happy, since some characters who I liked despite their flaws, turn into complete a$$holes. Since Candace creates complex characters with complex relationships and develops them within this series and crossing over to other series, you end up feeling like these are real people, so you end up really caring about them. So, some of the turns were a bit upsetting. I think this is called realism, and Candace keeps things really real, but damn! This is a complex story! Actually, by the end it felt like maybe the "dark side" was on the ascendant. Candace has set herself (and Kirsten, and us) some real challenges for book five! Not that there are any specific cliffhangers, but since the books amount to one long continuous story, I was left somewhat worried by the end of the book! So Candace, hurry up and write the next! Great book! I will probably read it again sooner rather than later since I always pick up more richness the second time around. Probably the third too!
