Slade by Laurann Dohner - August 19th!
Book 2 in the New Species series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but they are interwoven so it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.
Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man she will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland…he doesn’t even remember her!
The nosy new doctor wants to know all about the breeding habits between humans and Species. Slade proposes a hands-on education but she's not interested in a one-night stand. He can’t offer more because he's haunted by the memory of a woman he once tried to claim. He’s shocked when he realizes they are one and the same. He’s blown it—she'll never give him a chance now.
But, when her life is in danger, he's the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.
Fury is OUT! Yippee! I've gotten a lot of emails about it. They love him. AWESOME! To get this series out is a dream come true for me.

On a personal note ----
I debated on if I should address this or not but if you know me - I'm pretty blunt and upfront. Some people are comparing my New Species series to another well known series and that's fine and even understandable but here's some things to keep in mind just for knowledge sake. First off, I wrote this series before that series was out and I have the old, dusty computer and the dated files to prove it. Second off, anyone ever heard of H.G Wells??? Island of Doctor Moreau was a book written in 1896 and a movie was made about it in the 70's I believe. They did a remake of it some years ago too (90's) if you don't read classics. It was a horror novel about experiments gone wrong with animals/human hybrids. This idea isn't exactly unique. That's just an example and I used it because who hasn't heard of H.G Wells? The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, and the list goes on for his books. He wrote awesome scary stuff and they made fantastic science fiction/horror movies about them. There are more examples but I used that since yeah - who hasn't heard of him??? The idea of genetically altered human beings with animal DNA has been out there for over a hundred years.
Read New Species and you'll see they are different. The only common bond is genetically altered humans with animal DNA. A pharmaceutical company created them (not sure about the other series and how/why they were made) but in reality who would make them? Common sense. I doubt some guy in his basement has the high tech skill or equipment to take on genetic splicing and my chemistry set as a kid sure wouldn't have done the trick. LOL. The science is unfortunately real. They've been doing experiments with human/animal DNA mixing for a lot of years searching to find cures and that's why a drug company was picked in my head to have created them. It made sense to me. Look at the recent news story released on the subject as an example of the possibility. http://in.news.yahoo.com/uk-scientists-slammed-secretly-growing-human-animal-hybrid-111941923.html
I personally wrote about them because my first book/series I ever wrote was about a town hit by chemical weapons and it physically and emotionally changed them. My next series was about werewolves. I started a third series and kind of combined the two. Altered humans and animals met science and they merged. The New Species were born to my imagination. There are a ton of vampire and werewolf books out there. Again, not a unique idea but some AWESOME books are out there! I love them. Keep em' coming!!! Some series are known more than others. I'd hate to have every vampire book compared to Anne Rice because they are so different. (Loved her books, by the way) But... I hope you see the point. Werewolves are so out there in so many forms, in so many series, I can't even think of one that is the most well known in my mind. LOL. Anyway, I just wanted to address that. It saddens me when someone admits they missed out on some great stories about hybrid animal humans.
Have a terrific weekend.
