New Species. Book # 9
Although this is book 9 in the series it could be read as a stand alone, so long as you understand the “world”it is set in.
Beauty is a Gift female. One of the New Species that were created to be toys for the men who could afford to buy one. They are classed as special and fragile because they were used mainly as sex slaves. Everyone in Homeland has been told that these females are not to be touched, and be protected from abuse of any sort.
Beauty is feeling suffocated and lonely. The New Species males do not even speak to her, and she is terrified of the human men. She hears the stronger females with the males and wants a real life.
Shadow has been working with the human task force and is at Homeland when he sees someone running through the storm. He thinks it is an intruder. When he realizes he has caught a gift female Shadow knows he must not frighten her ,but she makes it impossible to get a female to help her.
Shadow and Beauty are sent on vacation to find out If it is possible for them to find the sort of bonding that New Species males have managed to find. The problem is the man who owned Beauty is very rich and has managed to bribe one of the task force to kidnap her.
A wonderful emotional story of two people who have been abused trying to live normal lives.The New Species were created by splicing animal with human D.N.A. to make super soldiers and the submissive gifts.
This is a series I am addicted to, it is best to start at the beginning of the series with “Fury” to understand the world, but after setting the scene I don’t think the order is so important.
