Tiger is OUT!!!

Tiger is releasing right now, depending on where you live in the world and where you are buying it from. Whooo Hooo! I know a lot of people really wanted his story. I had originally written it some years ago. It was one of the nine books that were finished but needed a lot of updating and rewrites. I ended up adding about 40,000 words to it. There are two more original books but I'm writing a few new books before I update the last two finished novels to keep the timeline in place so you go from one book to the next without time gaps. I REALLY hope you enjoy Tiger's story. Just a warning...LOL...there is a LOT of sex in this book. It's Tiger. Come on, what did you expect??? It's HIM. LOL!

Book 7 in the
New Species series.

Zandy’s had too much to
drink and is in the wrong place at the wrong time. She knows she’s going to die.
When next her eyes open, a beautiful man-creature is holding her in his arms.
He’s just too tempting to resist; her very own fallen angel. She wraps herself
around his body, determined to have him. But when this angel turns out to be
flesh and blood, reality crashes in—she’s seducing a New Species.

Tiger’s shock quickly
turns to intense passion when the human female kisses him, despite the fact
she’s trying to get his clothes off while he’s engaged in a task force
operation. He’s also made it clear he’ll never take a mate. Rather difficult
when he and Zandy can’t keep their hands off each other. The taste and feel of
his little human just leaves Tiger wanting more.

Publisher’s Note:
While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come
from reading them in series order.


(I strongly suggest you read them in order depite them being considered standalones)

I have no idea when they are releasing at other vendors. Hopefully soon!

The next New Species books are being written right now. I had hoped to have one finished by now but the new house thing has set me back a bit but I'm catching up. I'm happy to say that at the end of this week...all will resume to almost normal for me. The carpet is going in tomorrow which means I can have a real desk again and not have people coming in and out of the house to do stuff. I'll have electricity 24/7 or access to it without someone needing to unplug me to paint walls or install carpet. Furniture is being delivered this week too. I finally got a couch. I was so tired of sitting on a mat on the floor. LOL. In a few days I'll have a real bed again that doesn't need an air pump. I will also have a table again to eat at. No more living out of a suitcase or having to run to Walmart to buy clothes just to have clean ones. The washer/dryer were delivered after they finished with the laundry room. It's amazing how you can forget to appreciate simple things like clean clothes and something soft to sit on until you're camping in an empty house.

My husband and my younger kids are here with me this week! I missed them SO MUCH! I am going to miss them again when they return to California on Sunday. I can't go with them. There's more that needs done here and I'm so far behind in where I wanted to be with my writing that I'm going to be putting in some EXTREME hours over the next few months but they are going to come visit me on certain weekends. The time will fly by before they move into the house with me full time when their school year ends. I plan to finish the two New Species books - Obsidian and Shadow, finish Cousin Brand's story from Mating Heat, and Sky from Cyborg. I'm also hoping to finish a Raine book by the end of June. Then...I'm dedicating time to Zorn. Coto, Vhon, and Vinlotti's stories.

I get a lot of emails asking me about the series I write so I'll state it here. LOL. There are going to be more books for all of my series. I have a 'to write' list. Here's what is on it. I'm planning on writing all the brothers, including Trip and Adam from Riding the Raines. Vhon, Coto, and Vinlotti from Zorn Warriors are on that list. Mating Heat stories...Cousin Brand, the rest of the Harris brothers...and possibly Alpha Elroy will get a story. Cyborg Seduction...Sky. More cyborg books are planned. Of course...New Species. A LOT of them. I get asked if Breeze, 927, and Brass will get stories the most. Yes. I had written 9 of the books in the NS series originally and had 3 more books that were mostly finished when I had to stop writing due to health issues some years ago (when I got pregnant with my son). I had gone through all my old computers and found/rescued a bunch of partial stories I'd written for characters off the hard drives. Let's just say there were a ton more of them than I remembered writing. LOL! So there will be a LOT more stories and I know who is hooking up with whom. I'm just trying to put them in timeline order (why I'm writing a few new books between #7 and #8 of the originals) and will update, rewrite, and finish them.

My 'not so secret' series I talk about sometimes I had hoped to release sometime this year but I'm pushing it back until I get caught up on my 'to write' list. Hopefully that will be the beginning of next year sometime. I haven't worked on them at all lately in my 'free' time since I haven't had any. LOL. I want to catch up and get books out to you on your favorite series before I release a sixth series.

Okay...so now I think you're completely up to speed on what's going on with my life and my writing. LOL. I do apologize for being so far behind in answering emails. It's been tough living in a home while they are painting, fixing it up, and waiting for carpet so I can have furniture again. Everything that could go wrong...pretty much has. It's been a comedy of errors that sometimes wasn't so funny. Like having to live in a hotel for six days waiting for the keys to get in the house and my laptop decided to go out on me so I couldn't write. Carpet I wanted...they said it would be installed but then said they couldn't do it within a reasonable time so I had to scramble to find someone else. It held up...everything else. I am getting back on track though. It's almost over and I'll catch up. I'm going to hate being apart from my family but the up sides are I'll have a ton of free time to write and by the time they join me...the house will be totally ready for them to live in so it's less stress on the kids. They can pretty much pack their clothes and toys...and just move right into their finished rooms. I've named them. My 7 year old son has the Spongebob room. My 9 year old daughter has the 'princess' room, and my 13 year old daughter has the 'WOW!' room. Um...that's what everyone who comes in says when they see the bright blue and almost neon yellow/green paint she picked. Also...I have one room as a gym. I'm having gym stuff delivered soon so hopefully I'll lose a bit of weight before summer. That's the plan!

Happy reading!

Laurann

  6. Tiger found his way onto my Kindle last night about 10:00, and I'm loving him so far!

    The house project has obviously been a huge undertaking, but it'll be awesome when everything is FINISHED! Good luck!

  7. Congrats Laurann on the release of Tiger.
    Since you are having such fun with your house fiasco, maybe you should include something similar in a future. It will be fantastic as you have lived through it, so you will have that as a reference. :)

  11. I just finished Tiger! Definitely my favorite so far. Zandy has one of the best lines ever..."Lay off the damn drugs, people. Put down your joints and smoke some common sense." She was such a good match for him!

  12. I finished Tiger and LOVED it. You are an amazing author. The way you were able to changed my outlook on Vengence was incredible. Vengence went from being a complete jerk to someone my heart broke for. You are an incredibly talented woman.

    1. Anna...I totally agree about Vengeance. My personal opinion...I'd like to see him tie up with someone who's a cross between Elly and Tammy. Elly was understanding and supportive of Fury's emotional/mental problems and pulled him out of it. Breeze said "everyone is terrified of Valiant"...except Tammy. She was also understanding/supportive but she'd still get right in his face and tell him to knock it off. I think Vengeance needs that also. He REALLY needs an HEA!!

  13. I love your New Species books! I just read Tiger and loved it. I think I was most excited to read his story because of where he stood on human females. :-) Will you write any books about a NS female? You mentioned Midnight and Dr Harris in Tiger so I'm curious about how that relationship would work. You do great work. Congrats on getting the house almost ready! I look forward to reading more.

  14. I just finished Tiger and this is now my new favorite!
    I could not get on board with Vengeance in the previous books but you have turned that around for me in this one. My heart just broke for him. Also loved some of Zandy's one liners in this one. Can't wait until the next one comes out!

  15. L,

    Absolutely loved Tiger!

    Did Vengeance is next after Shadow?

    Any chances on May release?
    Or no hope for my NS dose in May? ;)

  16. Tiger was amazing, I'm sure I'll read it again and again.

    Please, Pleaseeeeeee write a book for Vengeance, he is so heartbroken, he really needs a mate.

  17. I bought and read Tiger last night. Couldn't. Put. It. Down!!!! Amazing job! I've gotten a few friends addicted to this series and I'm so excited to be reading your blog now too. You do an amazing job whisking me away from my "mommy, housewife life" to a fantasy land. I ended up staying up till the late hrs last night finishing this book. Justice has been my favorite in the series but the one I'm anxiously waiting on is Brass. So so so happy to hear there will eventually be a book about him. And my dear friend is itching for a book about Breeze. She will be happy to hear that it is in the works as well. Keep up the great work and don't over extend yourself!!!!

    Hi everybody.. I am a new fan. My sister introduced me to the books on April 5th...my birthday and I have read all of them including Tiger which just came out. I would like to suggest the female character for vengeance.... An elementary school principal with kids from Dallas, Texas who is wanting to start a new life. She applies for a job to run the new species school which of course would include humans and species that work at NSO. She would be older since most of the female characters are younger,a little taller than 5 feet 4 inches...more like 5 feet 8 inches, have her own children that she brings with her(3). Becuase of her age and experience she is more understanding of vengeance who comes around curious about the children and the school and thats how it all gets started..... Whatcha think? I thought it might be a good way to get myself inserted into one of the books as a character.....I LOVE THEM!!!! Hope another book comes out soon! Can't wait.

  19. Laurann, you've done it again. Another GREAT book that pulled me in from the first sentence and took me for an exciting ride all the way to the end! I loved TIGER and I'm so glad he didn't suddenly turn around and want a mate and everything from his past disappear as soon as he met Zandy. The angst he felt and that Zandy felt herself and so could understand where he was coming from felt very real and authentic. I have to admit though, I'd have loved to see a little more of the others teasing him about his past comments and feelings about mates and humans. LOL

    Like others have written, I'd love to see a HEA for Vengeance. The little tidbit you gave us about him learning about humans from TV should make it fun to read how he will interact with a woman if you write his book. :)

    Thank you so much Laurann for your hard work while in the midst of such upheaval in your new home. So many of us appreciate your dedication and we all absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE your books!

  21. hey--I loved Tiger very sweet man! I would love to read of Vengeance and a gift female. They could help heal each other and they could bring joy to each other!!--Bobbie

  22. Laurann, ya got me again. Could not put Tiger down. You definitely have another big winner and headed for a triple play on the bestseller lists. Chomping at the bit for Obsidian.

    I'm definitely hoping that Vengeance gets an HEA. His conversation with Tiger nearly broke my heart. AND we need an update on 880's condition.

    Zandy is absolutely perfect for Tiger. Gonna read the book again this weekend.

    1. Oh, yes, yes! I second that! I'm easy to please. I'll even take their romance being finished in someone elses book, because after all, it didn't sound like Amanda was going to put up much of a fight. Flame having an easy time getting a mate would infuriate some of those who are desperately longing for one. Lol.

  25. Just finished tiger and I loved it so much. I have every single one of your books except the anthology ones...( short stories make me crazy I always think.. That's it?!..) anyways I love all your books but I can't wait to find out Vengeance's story..oh and Dr. Allison's and I definietly want to hear more stories about the wild zone new species Valiant is my absolute favorite book. Oh and goodluck with your house the fact that your dealing with all that craziness while writing is really admirable.

  26. You are an AMAZING writer. I just finish reading Tiger and all I can say is WOW and when is the next book coming out. Every time you introduce a new character, I just want a book for them, like Snow, Torrent, Tree, Zest, Creek, Midnight and her Doctor and all the others. I seriously hope there is no ending for the series at all.

    Also OMG Vengeance really needs his own book. Like seriously I can't wait for him to get a HEA. He was already my favorite in Wrath but now after his little heart to heart with Tiger, my heart broke for him and I think I just fell in love. :D

  27. Laurann,you are amazing! I love your stories because they are so far from the norm, there is nothing formula about your work. They are so thrilling in so many ways, the action, the sex, and most of all the atmosphere of true love you create with each set of characters. Whenever you announce a book i just preorder anything you release!You are my favorite romance writer ever!

  28. hummm ... I don't know if it's because I'm french or I'm a little dumb, but what is a HEA ?

    But well, I can't wait to read Tiger ... the book is already in my kindle waiting for me ... and I have to wait this weekend to read it ... i'll die !

  29. HEA - happily ever after

  30. I truly enjoyed Tiger, and was very happy not only with his mate, but with all the "air time" for secondary characters. That being said, I must ask: will Vengeance get his book? He broke my heart, and I would really love to see him get a happy ending. I would love to see Smiley get his mate as well. The poor guy doesn't seem to catch a break.

    Great work as always. New Species is my favorite series at the moment, and I follow quite a few paranormal authors and series. I have not been disappointed by any of the New Series stories, and look foward to each one. Thanks for the fabulous writing!

  31. After re-reading all these posts, I have a suggestion: Should we start an "I Love Vengeance" club? lol

    Also, a nice Puerto Rican girl would do wonders for one of your New Species...think about it...Sweet, caring, but does not take a bad attitude from anyone... :D

    1. Funny you should mention that. I was actually gonna say the same thing. A strong "We Support/Love Vengeance" movement is an excellent idea. Where do I sign up?

    2. Does Laurann have a forum or somewhere where her fans can discuss the books? This would be a great place for not only the Vengeance fans but fans in general can exchange ideas. I don't have many people I can discuss favorite books with. It would be nice to discuss these books with other fans who love New Species as much as I do. Any ideas?

    3. Sign Me up for this Vengence Fan Club.. I am so In.. Loved,Loved,Loved him..He needs a HEA.Someone who will cuddle with him and grow his hair out so they can play with it..Ahhhhh.. Thea

    4. A Vengeance fan club? I'm sooo in! You're right Thea...he needs someone to cuddle and protect him and make him feel loved. I can picture her with his head in her lap playing with his long hair...WHEW! Gotta go sit in front of the fan! LOL

    5. I guess I will just have to be happy discussing the books on my paranormal romance discussion group. I got tired of not being able to discuss my books, since none of my friends or family are really into them (at least not as much as me), so I made a discussion group on yahoo. New Species will be our first topic. I have to give Vengeance and the rest of the guys their proper air time. I've been thinking about it for a while but never really felt a push for it until now. See, this series inspired me to make a discussion group. Thanks Laurann!

    6. Acerogamma...I'd love to discuss the books with you. Where do I find you on Yahoo??

      Delete
    7. Well, since the books we read are not for a younger audience, the group is actually in the age restricted section of the romance category. The easiest way is to go to the page directly. The group is brand new so we still don't have a lot of people, but hopefully it will be fun for everyone and we'll grow.

      Laurann I hope it's ok to put it here because I have no idea how to let Karen know where to find my discussion group otherwise. I apologize in advance it it's not, just in case. I really don't mean to be a bother about this.

    1. I just finished Tiger's book and as always a job well done. I'm looking forward to books on Brass, Fame and of course Vengeance now :). Please no Amanda for Flame she was an awful character. I found her to forward and disgusting with her comments. Once again it was a great book and look forward to the next one.

      Delete
    2. I guess differences are what make the world go round, because I LOVED the Amanda character. I thought she's just so out there about her thoughts and feelings. She's a bit like a Species female in the way she talks about wanting sex. LOL I'd love to see her and Flame in a book and the fact she was shot by an ex would make for some interesting undercurrent emotions. :)

      Delete
    3. Anonymous...THANK YOU!!!! Everyone seems to think Flame & Amanda would be a great match. NOT!!!! I thought I was the only one who saw Amanda as a real smart-mouth. She came across to me as very into herself...after all, in the R.E. office she came on to Wrath...who was her best friend's guy...who does that??? Flame deserves MUCH better!!!

      Delete
    4. Karen...I don't think she knew it was her best friend's guy. She didn't seem the type to get a hint - more the type that needed a 2x4. I have to agree with Teresa - I think she has hidden depths.

      Delete
    5. no, I don't think she knew he was Lauren's love interest but still she should have respected the warnings Lauren issued. Amanda is degrading herself by acting in such a obnoxious way and granted a little therapy wouldn't hurt her :). Yes, NS women are blunt and forward but not an offensive way.

      Delete
    6. I don't think she knew Lauren was interested in Wrath. Amanda is her best friend and would never hurt Lauren like that.

      I honestly think her behavior has to do with the trauma she went through. It seems to be a front. You know when people want to seem like they are ok so badly, they end up not seeming ok at all? I think that's what is going on. We have been talking about that in our discussion group. Amanda is just a very interesting character.

      I think that she wants a man so badly because she wants everything to be normal, but it's not. And I also think she realizes that, but she is trying to live life to the fullest after almost dying, with no fear and no regrets. The problem is that she is so desperate she comes off wrong. You are right, there is blunt and there is also taking it too far. That is what it seems like to me, anyway.

      Delete
    7. You all make very good points. I can give Amanda the benefit of the doubt that she wasn't aware that Wrath was Lauren's love interest...but Lauren asked her several times to back off and she didn't. Is she that clueless...or that self-involved? I agree, she obviously has issues, I just don't like her "in your face" attitude...it's almost like a challenge. NS females are blunt but never malicious. And here's your "psych" question for today...she was shot and almost killed by her "ex"...shouldn't that have made her more wary and distrustul of men? Instead she seems obsessed with sex and getting every attractive man she meets out of his clothes as quickly as possible. Strange reacton. And considering what Flame has had to overcome from his past, does he really need someone with that much emotional baggage? I STILL say he deserves much better.

      Delete
    8. Thank you Karen...I couldn't agree more. The girl has serious self esteem issues. Flame deserves someone who does not have so much emotional baggage attached to them.

  33. I've been trying to figure out who Obsidian is. Was he mentioned in another book, because I don't remember him and in looking around here and on Laurann's website I don't see anything about him other than there's a book coming out called Obsidian.

  34. I started with Brawn and fell in love with that book and ended up backtracking to the first book and have been hooked ever since. I cannot wait for your upcoming books and I look forward to seeing how everyone's HEA pans out, especially the ones we've fallen in love with, i.e. Breeze, Vengeance, Brass and even Smiley - it was nice to see something different from the canine/feline breed story.

    Heck- I can't wait for your next Werewolves book too!

  35. Loved Tiger. I also loved all the new and recurring characters that make their bookly appearances. Brass, Bestial, Jaded, Vengeance, Smiley and Tree. I loved the new characters appearnces such as Creek, Midnight, the primate I can't remember that had the different color eyes. I wanna read about him.

    I feel so sad for Vengence. I can't wait for his story. Loved the mention of Brawn and his baby. Can't wait for Obsidian and your other books.

    ReplyDelete
  36. WOW! I'm so floored by all the responses. I'm so happy that everyone enjoyed Tiger's book. Ven will get his own story, along with a lot of other New Species. You'll see some of the female Species get stories. The Amanda/Flame thing is quite a debate. It seems people either really loved or really hated her. LOL!

    I know who is hooking up with whom in advance thanks to the years that I wrote these. Mr. Laurann and I pulled all my old computers out of closets to salvage all the partial books I had written from the hard drives. There were A LOT of them so I had written at least a few chapters of each character. I had so many of them that I haven't read them all but I have them to read as I start working on their books to see if I want to keep the original storyline I had or write something new.

    Obsidian is 880 from Brawn's book. He picks the name in his story. He and Vengeance had both lost mates. I did pull Ven's partial I had written and I think everyone will like who he ends up with. I'm keeping the original storyline for sure with his. I wish I could give you more but I can say this, she's human and she's in danger...and alone in the world.

    I signed a 75 book deal with Ellorascave. There will be a lot more NS books. Promise. Thank you so much for reading the series and more books are coming for the other series.

    3. Ooooooooooooh, so THAT'S 880! I cant wait for his book! LOL I've been wanting to read more about Dr. Allison since Justice first mentioned her several books ago, so I was glad to read about her "obsession" with 880 in Tigers book. :) WoooooHoooo!!!! So they'll be the next book. I get so excited about all your books!! LOL

    4. puurfect Ven is my favorite new New Species from Tiger's book. I agree with everyone else I can't keep up with my favorites anymore and my kindle is filling up quite nicely with New Species. Thank you x 100!!!!! Team Vengence

      Delete
    5. So glad to hear about Ven getting his own book. He reminds me of that poor puppy on the LA freeway who stayed by the side of his deceased friend. He's damaged but so loveable. Can you bump Ven to the front of the line for the next book in the NS series? I'm dying to see who he ends up with and his HEA moment.

  39. Amanda is an interesting character. I think the reason she is so out there is because of what happened to her. I really don't think she is as flighty as she seems. That little scene when she sobers up to tell Lauren about living for the moment and hoping Flame was not turned off by the scars says a lot. There seem to be deeper waters running under the annoying desperate sounding comments. So I'll wait until the book comes out and we can see what is going on in her head before making up my mind about her. Flame, if that is indeed who she will end up with, could be exactly what she needs and she could be perfect for him.

    1. I can not wait to hear about Flame and Amanda. It sounded like they had chemistry. I wanted to find out if he called her again. I am also interested in Smiley now and Bass, Moon andmore about Valient (one of my favourite books).

      I love all your books especially the riding raines books nd look forward for more. I have also enjoyed checking this site for updates.

  41. Looking to hear news about Flame and Amanda they are interesting characters. I think she is deeper than she appears. They seemed like a hot mix together.
    can not wait for more NS books but love all the especiallt the riding raines books. Am desperately waiting on Flame, Brass, Bestial, Vengeance and Smiley.

    Just love your work.

  45. Just finished Tiger's book and I loved it. I cannot wait for the next book. I see that you have a to wite list and you get a lot of questions but can you give an estimate on how many NS books are you hoping to have released in 2012? I will not hold you to the number just trying to get an idea of how many more to look forward to this year. Congrats on the 75 book deal.

  47. Everyone loves Ven!

    Like someone said in one of the comments, my heart really broke for him. I hope we get to read his story soon!

  48. I don't have a release date since I'm still writing it. I'm really backed up from the move but things are almost to normal so I'm trying to catch up. I'm HOPING to finish Obsidian by the end of this month. FINGERS crossed. It won't be coming out in May. Sorry. There's no way even if I were to finish it that it could go through edits and get a release date that fast. June...maybe. Please don't hold me to that but that's the best I could hope for if I get it done.

    Thank you, everyone!!! I really appreciate all of you.

  49. great news!! just re-read all NS books. Valient would have to be my fav. I wonder is Shadow, Wrath and Brawn play a roll in Obsidian's book? Looking forward for Flames book the most.

  50. I bought "Fury" for my Kindle because it was on offer. I didn't honestly think I would like it. I could NOT put it down until I had finished it. I then proceeded to download the rest of the New Species books AND the Cyborg Seduction series. I read Tiger in around a couple of hours and I cannot WAIT for the nest New Species installment. I also cannot wait for the next Cyborg Seduction installment too. LOVE your writing. Absolutely love it !!! Keep it up :)

  51. I am a HUGE fan! I just discovered the series last week and have read ALL of them except Valiant and that one is next on my list! I just finished Tiger...oh, my!

  52. Hey Laurann, Is there a pub date for Obsidian yet?

  53. I’d just like to add my two cents on the Amanda/Flame discussion. I can see both sides of the argument. I personally dislike her. I loved Wrath’s story but every time I re-read the book I skip over any sections with Amanda in them just because she’s so repelling. I understand that her background has made her that way but if she was in a story with Flame or anyone else I fear it would be the first and only book by Mrs. Dohner I’d skip purchasing.

  54. I've loved all your books but must confess that Tiger is my favorite! Having said that PLEASE write a New Species book with Vengeance as the main character. I felt so sorry for him and want to see him get his own mate.

  55. Anonymous...I'm with you! Laurann, I'm sure you have a pre-set release schedule for the characters in the series...but would you allow us to take a vote?? Okay ladies...pipe up!!! All those in favor of Vengeance cutting to the front of the line and being the next book released...say "AYE"!!!!

  58. I just bought Tiger and can't wait to read it! I'm SO excited for more of the New species books, and like a lot of readers, I think I'm on pins and needles for Brass, Breeze, & 927! Also, I can't wait for Ven's story. *sigh* Poor guy.

    I just wanted to let you know I just finished reading the Cyborg Series in four days. I was so impressed with them I couldn't put my Kindle down. I would say Coal and Krell's stories are my favorite so far. I look forward to reading more about this series.
    I'm also looking forward to Ven's story...poor guy just makes you want to wrap him in your arms and never let go :).

  60. I loved tiger :) and I can't wait for vengeance brass smiley and 927's stories! 927 is obsidian right? And is he the one that the doctor said she was a little obsessed with? Because I hope she gets to mate with the one she was obsessed with healing!

    2. Speaking of 927, where did he go??? We haven't heard anything about him since the end of Val's book.

  61. I'm glad Laurann has her own order - I have so many I want to read about. Moon, Harley, Brass, Bestial, 927, Breeze (but I thought Trey would be a good match for her), Smiley, and Slasher. I can't wait until th next installment. :-)

  62. Just watched the Bloomberg clip on Ellora's Cave website -- covers for both Tiger and Wrath were shown, by NY TIMES Bestselling Author Laurann Dohner!!! Congratulations and keep writing such fabulous books. Love the New Species series!

    Hope you get settled quickly in the new house so you can focus all your attention back on writing -- LOL!
