Wrath volunteers to live and work outside Homeland where he’ll once again be confined in a small space with other males. He was subjected to horrific abuse and conditioning and forced to view endless sex tapes of human females while chained to Mercile’s perverted machines. Wrath knows he’s too dangerous and emotionally damaged to ever be with a female.
Lauren has just been detained by three big, buff, well-armed men—New Species. One of them really catches her eye. He is tall, sexy, and…her new roommate apparently. She has never met a man this truly spectacular and she decides to taste every inch of his amazing body. Wrath wants to explore that plan too. The sex is incredible and he gives her everything she needs but he’ll only go so far. Something is holding him back.
Lauren has to make him unleash his desire and Wrath has to get past his fear to give them a chance at a future together.
Award winning author Laurann Dohner has created yet another hot dramatic romance that sizzles the pages right off of the book. Dazzling her readers once again with exhilarating sexually charged exploits, Ms. Dohner proves to be a superb chemist when it comes to electrifying paranormal coupling.
Laurann Dohner continues her erotic saga with this intriguing tale about “New Species” number 919. Domineering, dangerous, sexy and emotionally scarred, 919 has recently been rescued from Mercile's horrific abuse. He feels strongly that he may be a danger to human females. When volunteers are needed to work in the new rescue task force, 919 picks a new name calling himself Wrath. He volunteers in hopes of bringing down those who have previously captured and abused him.
I do suggest reading this series from the beginning if you possibly can, as it makes it easier to follow the character development in Ms. Dohner's creations.
“New Species” are much stronger, faster and larger than humans, but many of the male “New Species” have discovered their true love-mate is found with a human female, and since “New Species” females cannot conceive, human female mates are birthing their future.
Wrath and the new task force members have set up their first sting operation. The problem? Lauren, a new real-estate agent who was told to show the warehouse her co-worker Brent should have shown, turns up instead and is mistakenly captured by the task force for interrogation.
Wrath is immediately attracted to Lauren but believes it would be best to avoice her for her personal safety. That cannot happen, though, when Wrath inevitably becomes her rescuer and protector. Action and adventure turns into a dramatic love bond that sparks out of control, leaving these two characters not only fighting for their lives, but fighting also to contain the wildfires of love.
Sizzling with lethal dialogue, as well as steamy sex, this truly sweet love story captures your heart and fuels your imagination.
I have enjoyed Wrath's story, as I found myself plunging deeper under the spell that Ms. Dohner has magically woven in her New Species series! The characters are traumatized yet extremely loveable. The Alpha personality we expect from the New Species heroes holds true even in this fable. I continue to find myself relating to characteristics of the female leads, and I tend to get excited about the hints of future romances mentioned in each book regarding secondary characters. With exciting alternate world building presented in these stories, one might find themself totally captivated and charmed.
Looking for a strong lover to sweep you off of your feet? Well Wrath might just be the one you seek.
