Description
Book 1 in the New Species series.

Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments. Company scientists have spliced human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such “experiment” captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him—even if he hates her for it.

Fury has never known compassion or love. He’s spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. Now he’s free and set on vengeance. He vows to end her life but when she’s finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

Fury can’t resist Ellie—the touch of her hands, her mouth on his skin, her body wrapped around his. He’s obsessed with the scent of his woman. And Ellie wants Fury—always has. She craves his big, powerful body and wants to heal his desolate heart.

But loving Fury is one thing…taming him is another.

Reader Advisory: This story contains the heartrending aftermath of a rape scene involving a captive male. Another scene involves capture and forced touching by a hurt, vengeful Fury.

Movement from of the corner of her eye caught her attention. She turned. Someone moved in her direction from across the room but being the shortest person surrounded by a group of taller men didn’t help her identify who approached.

“Ellie?” Director Boris drew her focus back to him. “We’ll sit down over there.”

“Sure.” She took a step to follow Director Boris.

“You,” a male voice snarled roughly from behind her.

Ellie attempted to spin around to see who the scary voice belonged to but someone grabbed her. She made a sound, a mixture between a grunt and a gasp, but then her body lifted from the floor. Strong arms twisted her in the air. Pain shot through her back and the air was knocked from her lungs. Her eyes widened as she stared up into the face of one enraged…416.

416 growled at Ellie, revealing his sharp canine teeth, and she realized her arms hurt where he gripped them above her elbows. He had slammed her flat on her back on top of one of the conference tables. He bent over her, his enraged face inches above hers, and the anger poured from his dark gaze. Pure terror flooded Ellie.

Her mouth opened but nothing came out. She sucked in air. He snarled louder, held her down tighter.

“What the hell? Let her go!” Director Boris gasped.

Ellie saw movement all around her from her side vision but she didn’t dare turn her focus away from the dark, furious glare of 416. He looked as if he was ready to tear her throat out with his sharp teeth, which hovered inches from it. Her heart pounded so hard she wondered if it would explode from her ribs. He’d survived and would kill her just the way he’d promised he would if ever given the chance.

“Let her go,” a male voice demanded firmly in a steely tone.

“What the hell is going on?” That came from another man who sounded shocked and whiny.

“Fury, let her go,” another man ordered in an unusually deep voice.

Fury’s rage-filled glare shifted away from Ellie’s terrified gaze when he jerked his head to the side. He growled at someone behind him.

“No. This is between me and her. Back away.”

Ellie swiped her tongue across her dry lips, relieved she could breathe again. The hands on her arms were bruising and it hurt enough that tears flooded her eyes. Fury glowered at someone behind him who kept his focus off her. Despite being in a room full of men, she knew she’d die in front of them when his attention returned to her.

“Let her go, Fury.” The male voice grew deeper, to a menacing growl. “Please.”

“She’s one of them,” Fury snarled. “She worked as a tech inside the testing facility. Back off now. It’s my right for vengeance.”

A distinctive noise cut through the room and Ellie’s eyes widened. She recognized the sound of a shotgun being pumped. She swallowed the lump that formed in her throat, afraid they might shoot him to save her. Damn it. She wouldn’t allow that to happen. All the terror dissipated at her concern for his life. She’d saved him once and she would do it again.

“It’s okay.” She spoke as loudly as she could. Her voice broke but she got the words out. “Don’t hurt him. Nobody shoot. Please.”

“Ellie?” Director Boris inched closer. “What is he talking about?”

Ellie gasped when her tormentor turned his head to glare down at her again. A chill ran down her spine from his cold, intense gaze and the knowledge that he would definitely carry out his threat. She had no doubt that he’d kill her on top of the table in front of everyone present.

“Fury,” another male voice growled. “Release the woman. We’ll settle this reasonably.”

“Mine,” Fury snarled, obviously so angry he couldn’t talk in a normal tone. His fingers tightened even more.

Tears slid from her eyes to roll down the sides of her face but she didn’t make a sound. She feared it would upset everyone around them, especially whoever had pumped the shotgun she’d heard.

“Ellie?” Dominic Zort sounded close. “You were an informant, weren’t you?”

She swallowed a moan of pain. Fury softly growled and his hands were brutal on her arms.

“Yes,” she gasped. “I know him.”

The growl deepened inside Fury’s throat to a vicious snarl.

“Fury!” A man rasped the word. “Release that woman now!”

Fury’s grip eased but he didn’t relinquish his hold. He moved back a few inches though. He didn’t hover all the way over her body and his lips pressed together to hide his canine teeth. He took deep breaths through his nose but he didn’t look away from Ellie.

Fury. Yeah, the new name fits the look in his eyes.

I think i have read this book 3 times. I don't just love the hero and the heroine, i love Brass, Justice all the other new species. The interaction between the main character is funny, sweet and draws you in. It is hard to put down when you start reading one of LD's books. Another great one and i have read them all.

This book started me on a love of Laurann Dohner's work. The New Species are a creative take on the man/creature style of story and I found the groundwork for the entire series phenomenally done in Fury.

How could anyone not love this book. I did cry (I'm a mush), but it was worth the tears. This series is always on standby and ready for me to read again and again. It's hard waiting for the next one, just remember to read starting with the first book you won't regret it. This author is in my top 10 list and I mean she's waaaayyyy at the top. Love her books.

This is the beginning of one of my all-time favorite series. This book was great and did a good job of not only telling a wonderful story of romance and hot sex, but also seamlessly building a new world without overwhelming the reader. Laurann Dohner is an excellent author. You'll want to read them all more than once.

Love this series. I have read other genetically engineered hero series and this series ranks above the others.
Submitted By: Calia on Jan 4, 2013
This series is one of my favorites. All those crazy scientists fooling around with DNA and 'mother nature'. But they create a brand new species that you will fall in love with. This is the first book in the series, and I would suggest you read them in order. Again, you will have to read them all, so make sure to find some place cozy to sit for awhile.

I'm actually looking forward to this series. Like all her other books, this one is a winner.

This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. The story was terrific, sex was awesome and it left you wanting to read the next installment right away (which I really, really hope is soon). I had to read it all in one sitting and will be re-reading it again and again. Buy it - it's well worth the price!!
Submitted By: YviChick88 on Aug 25, 2011
A fantastic book, I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. The storyline was really good and the sexual scenes were hot (if you like that sort of thing, I do!) I'm checking out if the author has started another one in this series because I definitely want more...
Submitted By: kschultz7784 on Aug 17, 2011
Love her work and this new one didn't disappoint & I'm totally ready for the next in this series. Gotta luv when you get an amazing read that's actually a story (more than 100pgs)...well worth the $$
