Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments. Company scientists have spliced human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such “experiment” captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him—even if he hates her for it.
Fury has never known compassion or love. He’s spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. Now he’s free and set on vengeance. He vows to end her life but when she’s finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.Fury can’t resist Ellie—the touch of her hands, her mouth on his skin, her body wrapped around his. He’s obsessed with the scent of his woman. And Ellie wants Fury—always has. She craves his big, powerful body and wants to heal his desolate heart.
But loving Fury is one thing…taming him is another.
Reader Advisory: This story contains the heartrending aftermath of a rape scene involving a captive male. Another scene involves capture and forced touching by a hurt, vengeful Fury.
Let me start by saying I had read a sample of this book and wanted it right away. Unfortunately I would have to wait to get it. Through reading a lot of other samples and freebie books I had, I had forgotten the name and author. I remembered the scene and went on Goodreads to a group called "What's The Name Of That Book" and the 2nd person to respond was able to identify it. Thank goodness because I could not get it out of my head. Very vivid sample.
This series is about "New Species". New Species is the race that was genetically altered with animal DNA. Only the people who were originally human were held as prisoners to continue medical experiments on them. There are both males and females.
Meet Ellie who is a spy for the humans trying to free the new race of humans from their prison. Elle fell in love with Fury the moment she saw him. She was not sure why she was so drawn to him but she checked on him every day. The book starts were Elle goes into the observation room to check on Fury and finds him being horribly abused. Afraid for his life she has to figure out quickly how to stop the abuser from killing Fury. Instead of thinking it through she just reacts at the horrible abuse laid before her and ends up in great danger of being found out as a spy. Now her only choice is to betray Fury for the greater good.
Elle is successful in freeing the prisoners and is setup to work along side them. When Fury sees Elle he is FUMING. He wants to kill Ellie for betraying him. But once he gets his hands on her and hears her side of the story he never wants to stop touching her.
With hate groups, picketers, and reporters they will have a tough time being the first mixed species couple. Hopefully Ellie can tame Fury and Fury can protect Ellie from her own race.
