Shifting Lust is an amazingly hot story brought to steaming, vivid life by Lexxie Couper. I loved the novel premise of a shape-shifter that is affected by lust - it definitely kept things sizzling. Not to say that the plot itself wasn't enough to keep me on the edge of my seat.
Lexxie Couper has a talent for keeping the story running and the reader panting (for more reasons than one) after it. I adored Kyra's character; not only was she more than enough to take on Raiven, but she has one of the coolest heads I've seen in a while.
My only quibble is that Drean seemed to have been left in the lurch at the end. I also wouldn't have minded a lot more back-story to round things out a bit. I sincerely hope that there's going to be more about Raiven and Kyra. Hopefully Drean will make another show also if there's to be a sequel. *hint hint*
"Give me an excuse. Just one excuse to blow you to the Heavens." -- Raiven a'Tor, Last of the Terrans
Working as a body-decoy isn't exactly the safest job in the six-systems, but Kyra Issarei, Chamelyon Shape-shifter, knows no other life. Until her heart is lost to the famous Raiven a'Tor, last of the Terrans and the most feared bounty hunter the six-systems has ever known.
Two solar years ago, Kyra fled from Raiven to save his life. Now held captive as a sexual pawn in an intergalactic battle for supremacy, Kyra hangs on the edge of madness. Sworn to avenge Raiven's death, nothing will stop her spilling his murderer's blood. Not the obsessed Murukhan Warlord, Mur'dek, who keeps her chained in his private chamber for his own gratification. Not even the residue psyches in her head fighting for dominance -- psyches that want nothing more than for Kyra to succumb to their burning lust for sex and blood.
Yet everything is not how it seems. Because not even death itself can keep Raiven from his lover's side. And pity anyone who tries to stop him.
