“Give me a hero who is six foot plus of sexy golden skin, hair and eyes and purrs when he gets excited and I am helpless to do anything else but drool and pant a little in his (massive) foot steps” ~ Under the Covers

When Tammy took a wrong turn on her way to work on the New Species land, she never expected to be confronted with six foot plus of sexy and snarling man-lion. She also never expected him to take him into his home, pleasure her till she nearly passes out and then decide to keep her. But Tammy knows she can’t stay with her gorgeous New Species lover, no matter how good he feels when he purrs, so she knocks him out and leaves. But, when he comes roaring to her rescue after she is kidnapped, she finds that he is unwilling to let her get away so easily the second time.

Loved. This. Although it doesn’t really vary that much from the previous three books in the series, what can I say? Give me a hero who is six foot plus of sexy golden skin, hair and eyes and purrs when he gets excited and I am helpless to do anything else but drool and pant a little in his (massive) foot steps.

Like all the New Species males Valiant was also over protective, possessive, sexy as hell and adorable. This book differs slightly in that Valiant is a little more primal and a lot less civilised that the other New Species males we have met so far, which just made the book all the more delicious. The romance between Tammy and Valiant managed to be both really sexy, yet incredibly sweet, I love how protective Valiant got. They were also really cute together and some of the miscommunications between them added some humour to the book and made me want to kiss Valiant all over for being so damn adorable.

But, this was almost exactly the same as the other books in the series…right down to the attempted rape, I really hope Laurann Dohner shakes it up a little bit more for the next book, as although I really am enjoying this series and love all the New Species males, if it repeats it self too much it will just become boring.

However, I am really enjoying this series, it is sexy, fun and I can’t stress enough how sexy the heroes are, especially Valiant. If you want something steamy, with a lovely little romance, than look no further.

About Laurann Dohner

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

I'm a full time wife, mother, and author. I've been lucky enough to have spent over two decades with the love of my life and look forward to many, many more years with Mr. Laurann. I'm addicted to iced coffee, the occasional candy bar (or two), and trying to get at least five hours of sleep at night.

I love to write all kinds of stories. I think the best part about writing is the fact that real life is always uncertain, always tossing things at us that we have no control over, but when your write you can make sure there's always a happy ending. I love that about being an author. My favorite part is when I sit down at my computer desk, put on my headphones to listen to loud music to block out everything around me, so I can create worlds in front of me.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

The New Species series are one of my all time favorites. It doesn’t hurt that the covers are unbelievably hot! I am still waiting for Smiley’s story. Hint, hint.
