Each book in this series is my new favorite and I’m sure the author can’t top herself and yet she continues to do so. The series continues as another New Species falls under the spell of a small fragile woman. Drawn to Zandy against his better judgment Tiger finds himself constantly needing to be near her. Everything about her attracts him and before he knows it he’s marked her. In denial over his own feelings he urges her to keep it private, which totally goes against the grain for his kind. This is one male determined not to be mated.
Zandy figures she’s just meant to be single after two divorces from losers. She doesn’t trust her attraction to Tiger due to her past and is on board when he suggests they just be bed partners. But it doesn’t take long for Zandy to fall for Tiger and then she has to conceal her feelings so as not to break their agreement. How will Tiger react when she has no choice but reveal their relationship?
While having the same momentum as previous stories in this series this one was unique in Tiger’s adamant reluctance to publicly claim Zandy. Until it got to be too much for him to bear. Between his own desires and those of other interested males it was soon pointed out to him he was being an idiot; I guess some behaviors cross species lines. The sex was steamy as always, with a twist on Tiger’s part in his passive aggressive mission to keep Zandy by his side. I viewed it as somewhat dirty, but remember, New Species weren’t raised like humans and as a result lack certain nuances of social behavior. So while I disagreed I also found it endearing. Not to be missed.
Zandy’s had too much to drink and is in the wrong place at the wrong time. She knows she’s going to die. When next her eyes open, a beautiful man-creature is holding her in his arms. He’s just too tempting to resist, her very own fallen angel. She wraps herself around his body, determined to have him. But when this angel turns out to be flesh and blood, reality crashes in—she’s seducing a New Species.
Tiger’s shock quickly turns to intense passion when the human female kisses him, despite the fact she’s trying to get his clothes off while he’s engaged in a task force operation. He’s also made it clear he’ll never take a mate. Rather difficult when he and Zandy can’t keep their hands off each other. The taste and feel of his little human just leaves Tiger wanting more.
