“…get your fans and an icy cold drink ready, we have a double helping of sexy, yet adorable New Species males”
~ Under the Covers

Numbers contains books fourteen and fifteen in the New Species series by Laurann Dohner, that’s right ladies, get your fans and an icy cold drink ready, we have a double helping of sexy, yet adorable New Species males! The stories are a little shorter, but  Numbers contains two good length novella’s so you definitely haven’t been short changed.

Book #14 – Mourn formally 140

You may remember Mourn from Wrath’s book (I think it’s Wrath and Lauran’s book, I could be wrong!) at that point, he was known as 140 and Mercile were controlling him by threatening his mate. As Mourn’s name implies, the fate of his mate was tragic and he now feels he has nothing to live for, until Dana comes in to his life and tries to help him through his grief.

I really enjoyed this one, it was my favourite story in Numbers Mourn was a little bit wild and still adjusting to his life as a free male, which made him curiously, and adorably, innocent in some ways. And, although I debate the healthiness of replacing one mate with another to give yourself a reason to live, I still really enjoyed it. As expected it was sexy and sweet, these Species men really do know their way around a gal’s body!

Book #15 – Hero formally 927

To remember 927, now known as Hero, you will need to stretch your mind back to Valiant and Tammy’s book. When Tammy gets kidnapped she is put in a cage with a New Species male, 927, who does his best to look after her. Now, 12 books later we are getting his book. What Hero has hidden from everyone is that when in Mercile he was raised alongside a human girl,Candi, they shared the same cell and although never consummated anything, were mates. That is, until Mercile decided to play games, resulting in Candi’s violent death. Her death haunts him; all he feels is a mixture of rage and loss, something he must face when Candi arrives at the gates of Homeland.

Candi has to be one of my favourite heroines in this series so far, although human, she has been raised as a New Species and apart from their physical aspects, has all their traits. I really enjoyed seeing Candi and Hero face their past and once again reunite, it was really touching, not to mention sexy as they finally get to explore one another. Another aspect of this novella I liked, was seeing all the females together as they all try and teach Candi about her new world, it was great to see some the heroines from the previous books and some of the New Species women.

Over all, I really enjoyed this book, both stories were great, I very quickly devoured them! I now CANNOT wait to see who is next, but I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed for Flame!spacer

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?

Thanks Suzanne for the review


Another fellow NS fan! Woohoo!!!! The review is a-w-e-s-o-m-e, Suzanne! I had know that this book was going to be next, but I didn’t expect it to be two stories-in-one! So can’t wait to get my hands on it…whenever it may be. 🙂
