An erotic paranormal romance…
Dimitri LeBlanc, sexy and charismatic beta of Acadian Wolves, survives a brutal attack after his wolf succumbs to a dark force, threatening his very existence. Waking up, tied to a bed, his amusement transforms into lust as a beautiful stranger heals his beast. Intrigued by his mysterious savior, the tables quickly turn, when in the heat of a dark desert night, he rescues her from a barbaric Alpha. Dimitri is inexplicably drawn to the alluring woman, and the discovery that she’s his mate rouses his hunger to claim her as his own.
Gillian Michel, a New York City photographer, conceals a secret hybrid past and mystical abilities. An entire lifetime, she’s deliberately avoided wolves, but a seductive encounter with an irresistible beta leaves her craving his touch, his lips on hers. Passion ignites her desire, leaving her yearning to submit to the powerful wolf who tests her sexual limits.
Deep in the heart of New Orleans, Dimitri and Gillian seek a cure to the parasite maligning his mighty beast. Still on the run from a malevolent force, they lure their enemy into the bayou. Will Gillian sacrifice her gifts to save the man she loves, destroying her own immortality? And will Dimitri eradicate the evil that has invaded his soul while protecting his mate from an adversary who threatens to kill them both?
Warning: This book contains several erotic love scenes, including m/f/m menage, and is intended for adult readers only.
REVIEW: DIMITRI is the sixth instalment in Kym Grosso’s adult, contemporary Immortals of New Orleans paranormal, romance series. This is the Acadian Wolves beta Dimitri LeBlanc and hybrid shifter/photographer Gillian Michel’s storyline. Although Dimitri is the sixth in the series it can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty. Any pertinent information from previous storylines is revealed when necessary to the premise. Please note: there are some graphic sexual M/F/M scenes-all consensual and erotic.
At the end of Leopold’s Wicked Embrace Dimitri is attacked by a rival wolf pack as he endeavors to protect a female shifter from assault. Without the ability to shift, Dimitri is left unprotected and the resulting attack has left him mortally wounded. Enter Gillian Michel-a woman with a special ability to heal-and a woman who calls to Dimitri’s immortal soul. Knowing the attacks will continue until she is caught, Gillian runs only to find herself on the receiving end of another assault time and again.
The relationship between Dimitri and Gillian is one of immediate attraction but Gil wants nothing to do with the shifter wolves. She is drawn to Dimitri but her family history prevents her from getting too close to any wolf. She is a hunted woman, wanted for the power she secretly hides from the world, but a woman who wants to be loved for herself and not what her powers will do. The sex scenes are provocative, emotional and intense. Gillian is Dimitri’s reluctant mate and Dimitri’s wolf needs to claim the woman for his very own.
The world building continues with the inclusion of many of the previous storyline characters as well as the sights and sounds of the New Orleans nightlife and the Las Vegas desert strip. The secondary characters include Jac and Nick from the New York Pack as well as Logan and several of the members from Dimitri’s Acadian Pack. Leopold and several of his Nightkind vampires play a significant role in Dimitri and Gillian’s story but it is one of Dimitri’s ex-lovers, a conniving witch named Ilsbeth whose jealousy and desire for Dimitri will put everyone at risk.
Kym Grosso’s IMMORTALS OF NEW ORLEANS series is a fantasy of the mind; an imaginative series about the darker side of the supernatural race; and a romantic tale of soul mates destined for one another.
