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!
