Recently returned from a trip, Varad Mohan walks into the ballroom of his palace and immediately smells his wife.  She is in heat and Varad knows that once she sees him, nothing will do but for them to mate, no matter that their passion has seemed to have dimmed with the death of their child.  Varad knows that his queen will never turn him down but getting her to admit that she loves him once more is another thing and Varad wonít settle for less.

Mahlia sees her husband, King Varad across the crowded room.  Her senses kick in and the only thing she knows to do is run.  She runs because she canít stomach the thought of delivering another child with the possibility of losing it like she lost her infant son.  Her plans go awry when Varad catches her and proceeds to show her how the king of all weretigers makes love to his mate. 

In Heat was out of this world hot.  I love the concept of mating heat and uncontrollable desire.  Varad loves his queen but in his inability to deal directly with his childís death, he hurt her and while he realizes this almost too late, I thought him quite honorable to admit his feelings to her and show weakness when he was supposed to always be strong.  Mahliaís character was a bit dearer to my heart because of her sadness and total devastation at the loss of her son.  My heart ached for her. 

In Heat is the second Wereplanets novel but completely stands alone from the first novel, In Ice.  I canít wait to read another installment of this series.  Crystal Jordan has my attention and I am looking forward to reading everything she writes!
