Publisher's Summary

Book 9 in the New Species series. While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come from listening to them in series order.
Beauty resents being labeled Gift Species. Everyone is way too overprotective, males aren’t even allowed to speak to her and so far, true freedom eludes her. Then a big, sexy Species officer mistakes her for the enemy and takes her down - literally. Shadow is dumbfounded. He has a Gift pinned beneath him - a big no-no. But Beauty is fascinated and wants to know Shadow a lot better. She's full of newly discovered, unrequited passion and he’s just what she needs to satisfy her curiosity.
For Shadow, sex means pain and loathing. For Beauty, enslavement and ridicule. Two lonely souls who have never known a loving touch, together in a cabin in the woods. Every caress, every discovery brings them closer to a life they never thought possible... beyond even their wildest dreams.

Definitely one of my favorites in the series!

I fell in love with this series all over again with Shadow. I think this may be the final one in the New Species series but I wish it wasn't. This is definitely a credit worthy series. Shadow's and Beauty's love story is so sweet and endearing my heart was bursting at every chapter. Also this one had a good balance of romance, action and of course humor...I love the misinterpretations the New Species have. I'd love another New Species story, but if I can't get that, anything from Laurann Dohner will do, she's a great author of this genre and Vanessa Chambers is a narrator I'll seek out for sure!

FINALLY.. We get to see a Species FEMALE STORY

Any additional comments?

I was really anxious to learn more about the Female side of the Species. The author somewhat casts the females Species as having harden hearts and being cold. Not sure I understand why the males are portraited with being more sensitivty to the mating needs. Its almost if the females are casted in a negative light. It seems only the males are emotionally stable and open to relationships. I was glad to finally see the author show the needs and desires of a female.Very good storyline. I hope to see more about the women of the story.

One of my favourite of the books as it is less like the others. A different story that although it does have many of the features of the series, is different enough to be to set it above previous books. Beauty is interesting & it is great to see her change & grow. Shadow is enough species to be sexy. Although he is not my favourite (Slade rules) he is not annoying like some. A good story

Ok not as good as the other books in the series

Ok read however the formula is starting to get a bit boring. New species meets small female and falls in love. Author needs to mix it up a little.
