Book 2 in the New Species series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver—but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man Trisha will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland…he doesn’t even remember her!

The nosy new doctor wants to know all about the breeding habits between humans and Species. Slade proposes a hands-on education but she’s not interested in a one-night stand. He can’t offer more because he’s haunted by the memory of a woman he once tried to claim. He’s shocked when he realizes they are one and the same. He’s blown it—she’ll never give him a chance now.

But, when her life is in danger, he’s the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.

Reader Advisory: There is a scene of an attempted rape.


Slade Book Two of New Species by Laurann Dohner led me back into the world New Species. Slade is one drop dead sexy man who only has eyes for the good Doctor. Once they realized they knew each other, I waited to see what rekindling would happen. Slade and Trisha have an explosive attraction that will singe the eyes. Yet I couldn’t stop reading or seeing the bestial side of Slade when in protection mode.

I found his other way of protecting adorable. Only men think distancing themselves is a way to offer better protection. Dr. Tricia is stronger than anyone gives her credit. Circumstances lead her into danger and she must wait to be saved. Courage and quick wits give her leverage. Her fears made me fear for her and I felt our hero’s pain at not being close at hand. I was thrilled when the situation changed for the better. I enjoyed reading of the entire species and not just the NSO, Laurann Dohner gives us a detailed view of the species she’s created. The rest of this story is heartfelt and I’m not one for spoilers. This is a must read story.
