More hardcore stuff from Lora Leigh
on 30 November 2006
Having previously read Megan's Mark, I knew there would be more hardcore stuff in this book.
A previous reviewer has explained the plot very well, so no need to go into it. Our man, dashingly named Dash, is a dangerous, sexy and noble man with a recessive wolf. With Christine Feehan, we have our Carpathian males with something extra, like with Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters. With Lora Leigh, our heros take their differences to bed, with some explosive results. There is something a little forbidden about it, not mention, Leigh's inclusion of a dominating anal sex scene. I didn't care for it in Megan's Mark and that hasn't gone away in this book. However, there is something very appealing about a very passionate man declaring you are his to protect, love, f***, etc. whilst in bed with you. Big points for alpha possessiveness and protectiveness.
Our heroine, Elizabeth was a great character, full of courage and love for her daughter. An interesting plot with more interesting characters springing up with enticing stories of their own.
Will I buy them the rest of the books? Probably a couple more. Although, a sexy and raw book that taps into a woman's need for an alpha male, there just isn't enough depth in her books.
J.R.Ward, Christine Feehan's Dark series, Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters are all superior books with lots of emotion, passion and sizzling heroes.
I don't mind graphic or hardcore sex scenes, I just want more love to go with it in my romance books.
