Valiant is an incredible addition to this brilliant series! There is a whole lot of GRRRRR going on... I just adore the paranormal genre; vampires, werewolves, shifters, etc. I just can't get enough of them. It sure would be nice to have some otherworldliness in our simple existence, but unless there really is a deeply hidden secret that they do exist, it likely won't happen. If you sit back and really think of some of the crazy things scientists have done in the past, Ms. Dohner's world CAN happen. Gene splicing is something that probably is being done as we speak. She addresses possibilities that are tantalizing and fresh. New Species are genetically engineered beings that are human and animal. The were developed in a laboratory and treated cruelly until they were discovered and freed. Too different to be integrated into the general public, they have settled in two locations on the west coast. Hate groups and narrow-mindedness force them to live in protected private communities. In the last book, Reservation was in the final stages of construction. It is a home for the New Species who are more animal then human. That is where we met Valiant, a New Species with a strong resemblance to a lion. He has very strong feline features and a purely animalistic temperament. He has no desire to deal with humans and all he wants is to be left alone. While he is lonely and desires a mate, he only wants to be mated to a big, strong, sturdy New Species female. That all changed when he scented Tammy. One wrong turn and Tammy is face to face with a fiercely frightening man. She has never been more terrified in her life or more turned on. Unable to move let alone breathe, she is overwhelmed by this strangely perfect man. She is unable to control her body. With his eyes alone he renders her unable to form a coherent thought. Suddenly her life is in upheaval. Wildly attracted to Valiant, but confused about his intentions, she leaves him. Due to her involvement with the New Species her life is now in danger. Valiant will do anything in his power to protect her. Tammy and Valiant's meeting was electrifying; an amazing opening scene for the novel. It captured Valiant's animal side and tendencies perfectly. While Tammy was rendered incoherent, Valiant was also blindsided. It was such a joy to watch the big man brought to his knees. When we first met Valiant he personified the inhabitants of the Wild Zone, the location on Reservation that was exclusively utilized by New Species that had little or no humanity in them. Valiant really was more beast then human, now he seems more New Species, the perfect blend of both animal and human. Ms. Dohner did an astonishing job with his transformation. He is possessive and overprotective, but he yearns to keep her and is willing to grow and learn to understand her. The big ones always fall the hardest! Read the Full Review at Whipped Cream Reviews

Although I was pretty leery with the opening scenes, I like how the story turned out. As with the rest of the New Species books, this book was well though out and the storyline was great though if you've read the other two books, pretty much one of the same (Species stakes claim over woman, woman in danger, Species recues woman, they live happily ever after-- fill in the blanks with some original scenes). I still gave this book five stars because it can be a stand alone book and if read that way, it would still be pretty original with the New Species in general. I love how these books have a good enough story line that you can take out all of the sex scenes and still have a decent book. And I LOVE the length of the books (over 600 pages!)

One can't help falling for Valiant he's so loveable, kind, loyal, fierce and madly in love with (HIS) Tammy. When talking about her he always calls her "my Tammy" and sometimes it just breaks your heart. I have the entire series yet it's Valiant & Tammys story that I keep rereading. This series is in my top 4 favorite series; The Carpathians by Christeen Feehan, The Dark Hunters by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Species and The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward. You will not be disappointed with these books! Enjoy.

I can’t begin to praise Laurann for all the New Species books she’s written and Valiant is my favorite! This story has the little bit of animalistic primal behavior that usually is only found in shifter type series. The idea of these characters seems entirely plausible too, which makes it more to the heart for the scary turn that happens. If you’re interested in that literal Alpha male and territorial hero, this is definitely the series for you. I highly recommend reading them in order but you don’t have to. 5/5 recommendation and will read again.

I love this series and I think Valiant is my favorite book so far I could not put it down. Valiant hates humans. On Tammy's first day at The Reservation she gets lost and ends up at Valiant's house. He's about to attack when he gets s whiff of her sweet scent and he wants more. He seduces Tammy and plans on keeping her. The only problem...Tammy has no plans on staying. Weeks later Tammy's kidnapped and Valiant comes to her rescue and that's when the real sparks start it fly. Can Valiant keep the only thing that's ever given him hope and peace or will that be taken away from him as everything else has? Valiant is a true alpha male with a soft middle and Tammy is a strong heroine with a back bone of steel.  They say series can be read as stand alone books but I highly recommend that they be read in series order.

~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog When Tammy took a wrong turn on her way to work on the New Species land, she never expected to be confronted with six foot plus of sexy and snarling man-lion. She also never expected him to take him into his home, pleasure her till she nearly passes out and then decide to keep her. But Tammy knows she can’t stay with her gorgeous New Species lover, no matter how good he feels when he purrs, so she knocks him out and leaves. But, when he comes roaring to her rescue after she is kidnapped, she finds that he is unwilling to let her get away so easily the second time. Loved. This. Although it doesn’t really vary that much from the previous three books in the series, what can I say? Give me a hero who is six foot plus of sexy golden skin, hair and eyes and purrs when he gets excited and I am helpless to do anything else but drool and pant a little in his (massive) foot steps. Like all the New Species males Valiant was also over protective, possessive, sexy as hell and adorable. This book differs slightly in that Valiant is a little more primal and a lot less civilised that the other New Species males we have met so far, which just made the book all the more delicious. The romance between Tammy and Valiant managed to be both really sexy, yet incredibly sweet, I love how protective Valiant got. They were also really cute together and some of the miscommunications between them added some humour to the book and made me want to kiss Valiant all over for being so damn adorable. But, this was almost exactly the same as the other books in the series…right down to the attempted rape, I really hope Laurann Dohner shakes it up a little bit more for the next book, as although I really am enjoying this series and love all the New Species males, if it repeats it self too much it will just become boring. However, I am really enjoying this series, it is sexy, fun and I can’t stress enough how sexy the heroes are, especially Valiant. If you want something steamy, with a lovely little romance, than look no further.
