Primal Heat ~ Donna Grant
I picked this one out thinking it might be a nice change of pace from all the YA I have been reading lately. Let me tell you this was a big change. This is an adult only book. Primal Heat falls into the erotic fiction catergory without a doubt. As far as the question of if it will get your blood pressure up the answer is yes. If you are looking for a hot read then this one would be an easy pick.
Being an American in Britain isn't easy. For Krista, its downright hard especially when she's plagued by erotic dreams that increase as Halloween approaches. So when she's given a dare by her co-workers to pluck a rose from the most haunted house in Cardiff, she agrees never thinking it would be more than a scare tactic.
As a Time Agent, all Orrin wants to do is capture the Weres before they feed off the people of Cardiff, but when he lands on Earth and discovers the woman he's been sharing dreams with is there, he can't help but find her. All he planned to do was talk, but the lust that flared between them left no room for talking.
But the Weres have come for more than food. They've come for Krista, to claim her as the mate to their leader. To resist their seduction is futile. Unless a Time Agent is involved.
What I thought:
Looking at the storyline, there are some possibilities. Unfortunately this is more of a novella so there wasn't enough time for any great character development. But the characters had potential. Seeing as this is a storyline focused on well, the heat between the two main characters there was way more focus on that then who they were as people. There was also a few questions left unanswered at the end of the story. For one thing why are they called Time Agents? What happens to humans who are "claimed". If they travel through time whats with the space ships? I'm not sure if there is a sequel to Primal Heat out, maybe set in the same universe? I will have to check it out and see. Either way I did like this book. It was a quick read and the steamy scenes were well written.
