The third "New Species" erotic romance by best-selling author Laurann Dohner features plot twists, golden cat-eyes, and enough passion to leave characters and listeners all breathing hard.
Vanessa Chambers gives a reading by turns steamy, suspenseful, and oh-so sexy. Tight plotting and believable characters mesh in a story of love and danger, as a woman finds herself hunted by a predator who, despite being part beast, fulfills her very human desires. He will also devote himself fully to her protection even as enemies of them both threaten.
Tammy has always tried to be prepared for any calamity life might send her way but she never imagined a sexy, lion man-beast in her future. He’s huge, got the most exotic, golden cat-eyes she’s ever seen, and she’s so terrified she’s speechless for the first time in her life. He’s stalking closer, growling at her, and she’s too terrified to even flee.
Valiant hates humans. But when he gets a whiff of the adorable human female who has invaded his territory, he starts rethinking. Her fear scents of pure, sweet temptation and the closer he gets, the more appealing she becomes. Once he’s got his hands on her, he isn’t about to let her go. One thought will change his life. MINE!
Before Tammy can regain her senses, she’s flat on her back in Valiant’s bed. Now he just has to use every inch of his big, buff body to convince her that she should stay with him forever.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I really like the New Species series... however not all the books are on the same level...
Book 1 was great, but book 2 fell short to me. This one was awesome! I actually think this one was a bit better than book 1. Only slightly. I love the whole possessive alpha male thing...
I love they way this book started... with Valiant and others in a showdown of dominance because the human invaded his territory.. Then he grabs her up and makes her his!!! It was awesome. The whole book was pretty darn good.
Great Credit, Buy or Sale.
Valiant Valiant Valiant!!! I LOVE him, and I totally loved this book! I'm so hooked on this series right now it's all I'm listening to. I laughed so many times throughout this book it was as though it was a romantic comedy. Valiant's reasoning and his passion for Tammy made this one of my favorites of 2013 for sure. Although I'd consider it within the paranormal genre its just different enough to offer you a change of pace if you're into paranormal romance novels. The narration is really good, and was one of the things I loved the most with this particular book, the voice characterization for Valiant just tickled me to pieces, especially with the lines he had--I was in stitches! Beyond the humor, this series is very endearing and you will LOVE all the characters guaranteed. So far I've not been disappointed greatly and have already moved on to book 4--JUSTICE--he seems to be a delicious piece of work, so I can't wait!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Valiant is one of the New Species living in the Wild Zone of the Reservation. He has more animal features to look at than a lot of the new species and is Human/Lion mix. Tammy works for a catering company and is on the NSO (New Species Organization) site known as the Reserve for a catering job. Tammy walks by mistake into Valiant's yard a mistake leaving her in terror and fear when the huge man-beast starts to growl and threaten her. He hates humans and will do anything to protect his home, that is until he takes a sniff of Tammy and immediately claims her as his. After a lot of tense moments we realize Valian down't intend to kill or harm her but he does intent to mount her and have sex....
I thoroughly enjoyed how Tammy shows just how strong and perfect she is for Valiant. She proves she is capable of taking care of herself and others! Valiant is another sizzling Hot and Sexy action packed book by Laurann and was perfectly narrated by Vanessa Chambers........
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
I have the same complaint as the cyborg series. I have listened to the first 3 books in the series and its following the same pattern, even all the way down to the short human females (again). Don't get me wrong the series is still good, great plot line, funny characters. I just need more variety. The first 3 books are very similar..... New species huge dangerous male falls for a tiny little fragile human female, the female is captured / attacked by fanatic hate groups and the NSO goes a retrieve the female mates, the end. I think I might die of shock if there was a tall human woman in the series, or mixed breeding or a new point of view of the plot line. I am going to continue with the series, they are entertaining, I hope some new stuff comes along in the series....if not I will be disappointed. I don't want to hear the same story 9 times in a row.
I've read the whole series.All the books are great
Awesome sex scenes ,Good character development
This is a book I couldn't put down.I got a little more out of it listening
You can't help but love valiant , under all that animal is a sweet and gentle guy,who really wants to belong
tammy is soft and gentle really good with Valiant.since he needs more understanding than most .Loved the part in the hotel..Well worth buying or the credit
I give the story/book a 5 rating. i love the story of Valiant and Tammy. I give the narrator a 2 rating.
Toward the end when Tammy is in the cage with 927 and they are rescued by Valiant and Justice. Tammy tries to help 927 by comparing her first school day to his first time being free.
the narrator did not have any range in her voice. It sounded like she was holding her nose when she was trying to distinguish the different characters. She failed big time with different voices. she made them sound real dorky.
I love Laurann Dohner's books and to me when I read them the different New Species are very masculine and proud. The narrator ruined the audible book for me. I think a man narrator would be better for the New Species audible books.
Say something about yourself!
I have really enjoyed the first 2 books in this series and already read the 4th book, but I have to say I found this one lacking a bit. I didn't connect with these characters as I did with this other books. Maybe it was mood, I don't know, but this whole book seemed a bit forced like no way does that track with other things that have happened. Thankfully book 4 is way back up there.
Since it is part of the series I would say you have to get it, but I'd prefer it was a sale item.
Vanessa's narration style is a good fit with the story theme and she has a good range of voice styles.
Author DeAnn DeVille
Vanessa was an excellent narrator. The storyline was good
Chris Hemsworth /Jennifer Anniston
The storyline was excellent, I being a Thundercat's cartoon junkie and loved the Beauty & The Beast series when it was on really enjoyed the audiobook. However I had no idea the language was as explicit as it was. I had to make a mad dash for the speakers during a love scene. Once due to my daughter playing in the next room and once because I was listening to it on the job while I worked. Steamy is what I would list this story. Yes I would get another book however would hide it like it was a playboy magazine.
The ONLY reason I took the time to write a review is because I can't stand the narrator. WHY does she have to sound like an air-headed valley girl??? even when she's doing some of the male voices! There is nothing more annoying to me!!
his one-liners are classic!
I like how this story followed on from the last two books. In this story the enemy is far more evil and you learn of the methods they use to get rid of the New Species. There's so much more action in this one, but there's more gripping suspense and danger
when Tammy is locked in a cell with 927 that really gives you a really good look at what life the New Species had before they were free, plus it really brought out Tammy's inner strength, we knew that she was a tough character but; in that scene she was so strong.
