Laurent Cole and his Alpha, Andreas, are
hungry and stop at a café called The Black Cat Café and Coffee
House for breakfast. As soon as Laurent walks in the door he
is mesmerized by the black haired waitress working in the
restaurant. The closer she gets, the louder his wolf howls,
and after just a few short words exchanged with her, Laurent
knows a certain fact and has no doubts. She is his Mate and
he wants her.
Rain Foster has spent the last year in
Seattle working and doing her best to stay as inconspicuous as
possible after having left her home without her father’s
permission. Being a waitress at the café allows Rain the time
to pursue her true love, which is painting and she hopes to
host her own art show one day. Working her normal morning
shift, Rain is brought to a dead stop when two of the most
beautiful and powerful men she has ever seen walk through the
door. Totally tongue-tied and somewhat embarrassed, she can’t
help but notice how captivating the darker man is than his
companion. Instantly in lust with him, Rain imagines the most
naughty things, never realizing that her thoughts just might
become her reality.
Lusting for Laurent Cole in the worst way
while reading Ascension, also by Lauren Dane, I so wanted him
to have his own story. And oh, what a great story it was.
Laurent has spent his life guarding those he loved. He
deserved a mate, and one worthy of him. Rain was exactly the
woman for him. She was feisty, fun, and rocked his world.
Together, their love scenes were seductively innocent at
times, and then they would do an about face and were hot
enough to make me blush.
Fire and Rain was
excellent. Lauren Dane continues to be a favorite and an
automatic read for me. Released this week from Ellora’s Cave,
Fire and Rain is a magnificent addition to any
bookshelf. While it is closely tied together with the
previous novel, Ascension, it totally stands alone. I found
it amazingly wonderful. Of course, after having read it, I
now yearn for more from this talented author.
