What I’m reading ~ Obsidian ~ Laurann Dohner

This is the eighth book in the New Species series.

880 was comatose when the NSO found him, and in the months since he has healed, but not regained consciousness. The human doctor working for the NSO, Alison, has a theory, something she wants to try to wake him, but everyone she talks to refuses, so she takes matters into her own hands and kidnaps him, taking him to a rented farmhouse for a few days to see if he will get used to her scent and wake.  She knows that she’ll lose her job, and is risking imprisonment, but it’s worth the risk.

When NSO agents find where they are hiding, she knows she’s out of time, but no one is prepared for what happens next.


What did I think? I enjoyed it. I was so drawn in, so intrigued by the story that I stayed up past 2am to finish it, despite knowing I had to get up at 6.

My rating? 4 howls.

What I’m Reading ~ Cyborg Seduction series ~ Laurann Dohner

Kissing Steel, Melting Iron, Touching Ice and Stealing Coal. In the last three days, have read all of these. This is a Sci/fi erotica series, set in space on a series of shuttles and ships, and occasionally on another planet. They follow the stories of four cyborgs, a people created by men, then determined to be too smart for the purpose they were created for so they were sentenced to death, only they escaped into space before the sentence could be carried out. They each encounter their own human woman and become involved with her.

Each story has it’s own twists and turns as each couple deals with their own issues.

What do I think? Obviously, since I keep reading them, I enjoy them. They aren’t the most involving or wittiest thing I’ve read but I like them.

What I’m Reading ~ Tiger ~ Laurann Dohner

Tiger is book seven in the New Species series.

Zandy has a history of bad judgment when it comes to men, and she has sworn off relationships. Tiger has watched the males of his kind change when they found their mates and he has sworn never to take one, especially not a human mate. But when the two of them encounter each other, they learn that fate has other ideas. Can they fight their fate or will they accept it?


What did I think? It was an enjoyable fast, easy read. Great for an evening when I needed a break. I like the series and Tiger was a good addition to it.

What I’m Reading ~ Wrath ~ Laurann Dohner

This is the sixth book in the New Species series.

Wrath joins the task force to hunt down and capture humans who worked for Mercile and bring them to justice. The task force captures Lauren, believing her to know where one of the men they’re after is. When Wrath realizes she is just in the wrong place at the wrong time he does every thing he can to protect her.

What did I think? This is the sixth book in the series, I’ve read them all. I enjoy the series, despite knowing that they are a softer, gentler version of Lora Leigh’s Breed series. They have an intriguing (if hauntingly similar) story line and steamy, erotic (if tame) love scenes.
