Harlequin Nocturne - April 2012
Warrior Rising the Esri Series by Pamela Palmer
In this book, the humans are still fighting the evil Esri king who is intent upon enslaving the entire human race. The 1/2 Esri humans are on the front lines as they are the only humans who can resist the hypnotism of the Esri. Harrison Rand is charged with guarding the Esri Princess who might be the only thing that can stop the evil king. Along the way he fall for her, sparks fly, a war is fought, etc.
This series has not been a favorite of mine. The author created an entire new world that smacks of a bit too much Science Fiction for my tastes. Also, the instant desire just seemed weird. There didn't seem to be any reason behind it. I did finish the book and it was okay, but not great.
The Werewolf's Wife by Michele Hauf
Ridge Addison is the new alpha of his small werewolf pack. He is determined to end his marriage that he jumped into one night on a whim in Las Vegas, so he can get on with his life. The problem is he has never been able to get Abigail out of his mind. When he looks up Abigail, she is determined to make a life for her and her son without men and without Ridge, but when her son goes missing, she accepts Ridge's help. They soon learn the sparks are still there. Can they reunite, can they find Abigail's son?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The action/kidnapping kept the reader turning pages. The romance was interesting and believable and the supernatural elements were good, too.
