Black Cougar, #1

Lucas by Eliza Gayle is the first book in the Black Cougar Series. With all the information and secrets hinted at in this book, dealing with Lucas and his family, as well as his clan and their home, I can only imagine how wonderful it is going to be if Ms. Gayle goes into more detail about everything.

I was quickly drawn into this fast paced, action packed story. The action and pace didn't let up throughout the book. The passion in this book is explosive. Kira and Lucas have a strong connection through their dreams. When they finally meet in person, their attraction was nearly overwhelming in intensity and urgency. That attraction and passion also did not let up, even when the characters were in danger or under major stress from outside sources.

I loved the characters in this book, both Lucas and Kira and the secondary characters. They were all believable and captivating. The twists and turns and secrets in this book made it a bit hard to follow at times, and some conflicts were not resolved. Because this is the first book in a series, I am confidant that the talented Eliza Gayle will bring everything together in a very nice series. One which I cannot wait to read!

I love erotic paranormal books and when they are part of a series, even better. If you feel the same, then Lucas is a must read for you.

Book Blurb for Lucas

Kira MacDonald is in trouble. Plagued by false visions and erotic dreams of a man she's never met, she fears losing both her psychic powers and her sanity. The cure? Finding and bonding with her mate. The stubborn red-haired warrior might not want one, but fate has other plans, plans that include her rescuing Lucas Gunn.

As the Guardian of his shape-shifting clan, Lucas Gunn lived a quiet, solitary life. Until he was kidnapped, examined, and tortured. Now imprisoned, his only tie to the outside world is the memory of his dreams and the passionate woman who appears nightly in them. He thought she was nothing more than a vision. Then she came for him.

An uneasy alliance, a mating call that won't be denied, rituals that must be honored, and unrelenting enemies who will stop at nothing to get what they want. It all comes together in the first of Eliza Gayle's sensational Black Cougar Series. Passion and Pride. Duty and Danger. In the end, there's really only one choice...for Lucas.
