Therian Promise

Therian Heat, Book Two

Ava was on the run. She had escaped the thugs who had been sent by her father to retrieve her. Hiding in a remote cabin, she has a vision about her twin sister. Disturbed by it and by a strange feeling of dread, Ava leaves the cabin and runs right into the arms of a handsome stranger. As the youngest member of the Prime council, Kyle is trying to change centuries of Therian traditions, one of which allows women to be forced into mating. He has been searching for Ava ever since it became clear that her father was after her. He finally finds her and something amazing happens. Ava teleports the two of them to an unknown location and learns that she isn't human. Circumstances force Kyle and Ava together and both experience an overwhelming attraction and pull towards each other. Ava has the potential to become an extremely powerful Therian and there are many who would like to control her powers. Danger and conspiracies abound as she discovers both her heritage and a passionate, all consuming love.

A wonderful continuation of an intriguing series. It was exciting to learn more about the Therian culture and lore as well as experiencing Ava and Kyle's discovery of each other. The plot moves along nicely and the secrets and threats seem to grow daily. I like that there seems to complex central plot and that each story, although unique to itself, continues to add to the whole. There's an intense and sensual love story, sexy shifters, evil enemies and plenty of action. What more can you ask for from a paranormal romance? This is not a run of the mill 'shifter' story; Ms. Friberg infuses her shifters with new life and fascinating characteristics. I'd suggest starting with the first book to get the complete picture. You'll be as hooked as I am. There are several fascinating secondary characters and I can't wait for the next book to see who's story will be told.
