I really enjoyed this book. Like several of the other reviewers I wound up getting to bed really late because I just HAD to finish it. I like the fact that the author is able to combine the steamy erotica aspect within the framework of a really good plot and that there are some nice twists and turns so that the story doesn't end up too predictable. I am really looking forward to the next book and I would definitely be willing to pay a reasonable price for it. I also liked that this book was longer than The Mating which allowed for more character development and plot. Thanks for a great story.
