What the book has to say:
Dr. Joyce Yards has never met anyone as irresistible as 466. Their therapy sessions are growing hotter, his raw sexual hunger becoming aggressive, and he refuses to discuss anything except the possibility of getting her naked. Joy understands the dire consequences if she indulges her passion. It will break her heart but she must walk away.
Moon has been drugged, his memory shattered, and he’s now little more than feral, a dangerous threat to everyone. In their need for help, the NSO doctors turn to the only female Moon ever cared about—the one who left him behind two years ago.
Moon isn’t the same male Joy once knew. There are no rules now. If sex tames the wild beast and triggers his fractured memories, allowing him moments of lucidity, then Joy will give him everything, body and soul. She’ll do whatever it takes to save him—even at the cost of her own life.
What I have to say:
It broke her heart but Dr. Joyce Yards had to walk away but now Moon’s been drugged and he’s little more than feral and she’ll do whatever it takes to save him in this riveting paranormal romance.
As his therapist Joy couldn’t give in to the strong attraction that burned between her and 466 so she did what she had to do in order to protect him but now Moon’s become a danger to everyone and the NSO has called her in to help and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the passionate suspense that builds as Joy tries to reach the man behind the feral beast. Moon like all the Species’ characters is strong, sexy and demands attention and Joyce is a strong female that compliments Moon’s character very well and the chemistry blazes from the pages with lots of heat and explosive sex scenes that scorch the readers while the relationship is one on a very rocky and treacherous path that adds lots of depth and emotional turmoil to the story.
Their enemies have struck again, this time with not only a new drug but a diabolical way to ensure that it brings about their desired result but the enemies don’t have a clue when it comes to love and loyalty. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers shivering in expectation and the well written scenes and details bring the story to life while the well orchestrated events ensure that the readers have to read every last word. Lots of excitement throughout the book as Moon attacks everyone in his feral state and of course interfering doctors who always think they know best while some additional spice and excitement comes from an unexpected source aimed at Joy and causes Moon to get in a bit of trouble.
Once again, there was no way I could put this book down once I started reading it and really it just gets harder and harder to decide who my favorite is, so I have decided to declare it a tie and just claim them all.

Introducing Laurann Dohner:
I had a rather short area here telling a little about myself but then I had more than a few people ask me to expand it so... here goes. LOL. I'm a full time home 'supervisor' which is a nice word for saying I'm a housewife. I'm happily married, I met my dream guy in 1989, and we have 4 children. I live in Nevada and I can't function without iced coffee. I believe in romance, I've always been a daydreamer, and I'm a HUGE fan of books - always have been.
No, I didn't know that I always wanted to write. I inhaled books as a child. I read entire series (Pippi Longstocking, Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys, Trixie Beldon, The Borrowers, etc) in a matter of days. By the time I turned nine years old I had an adult library card where I visited often. I moved on to John Saul, Stephen King, Richard Laymon, Agatha Christie, and then found romance. I got hooked. I wrote poetry in my teens and then moved on to short stories. I started to write my first book after I read a real bomb of one that ticked me off with really horrible characters and a plot that was shabby at best. I thought...I could do better!
I wrote my first book which will probably never see the light of day in the early 90's. I wrote a series of books from it. I'm a series fan! I kept writing for fun, wrote MANY books and then in 2009 I decided to attempt to get published. I wrote my first Sci Fi romance and Ral's Woman came to be. I submitted it and with a little tweaking, Ellorascave sent me an acceptance letter. It was kind of a 'Cinderella' experience for me. It's been a terrific ride so far and I'm really happy. It's a dream come true.
