Another fantastic Curran's POV!

I love reading what Curran is thinking and I LOVE that he doesn't always get his way.

The only thing that could've been better is for this to be included in the book!

Loved this:

"I had to warn her out of courtesy before I slipped out of my towel and into the hot tub. I did not want her to faint and drown. Of course, if she did go under I would be honor bound to pull her out and revive her. That she appeared to not be wearing a bra did enter my mind. I would only p

I Curran! I loved this scene from Kate's POV, but I loved it even more from Curran's! ...more

I LOVE my Curran (well, he's actually Kate's Curran, but we're not dealing with semantics here, hehe)!!

Hanging around in Curran's mind never fails to make me smile. I love how he thinks, how he sees himself, the way he analyzes the situation, how he sees Kate. I love everything about my Curran :D.

This scene was from Magic Strikes, the hot tub scene, and the events just preceding it. owing to the nature of the scene, Curran's POV was slightly cheesy, but still sweet. His interactions with Derek m
LOVED it!!! God, I LOVE getting ANYTHING we can from Curran's POV!! I love to read how the Beast Lord thinks and to know what makes him tick. This short story about his time in the hot tub w/ Kate is no exception!! It's great to get more insight about his feelings for Kate, and he is unabashedly unapologetic as to his thoughts and feelings. I just love him for that! Not to mention, of course, that it was amazing hot, even for such a short scene!!

THANK YOU GORDON AND ILONA!!! You have made this f

Read the Curran pov here

This is the latest Curran Point of View from Gordon Andrews. It's a great scene from Magic Strikes which is the 3rd book in the Kate Daniels series. This scene is where Kate is in the hot tub, and Curran joins her (it's not what you think, if you haven't read the series. Okay, maybe it's a little what you think-lol)

I thought it has one of the best lines in it:

But now, with her hair down, and her features relaxed, she looked beautiful. I wondered if she knew. No, probably

I don't mean to sound like a perv, but Curran's all naked and wet in this POV, how could it not get 5 stars?
No fucking way, not now.

Nice little snippet from Curran's POV. I know Suz has claimed him and all, blah blah *rolls eyes* but while I was reading this, I could just pretend he was mine. At least for a short time.

I need more.
This is available on Ilona Andrews' website:

I loved it, thank you for writing this and offering it to your fans for free.
Favorite line:

"I had to warn her out of courtesy before I slipped out of my towel and into the hot tub. I did not want her to faint and drown."

I always love anything written by Gordon Andrew that details Curran's POV. He adds insight from the male perspective about what we as women only speculate is occurring in various scenes of a book.

I remember this scene vividly. The weres were fighting in the ring and Curran was injured. Kate was angry and stormed off to be alone in a hot tub. However, Curran found it and joined her ( naked I might add). They chatted and slowly but surely their ire simmered down to an enjoyable conversation. Soon
All right, how the hell did I not know this existed until just now??

This is the only scene I’ve read with Derek in it where I wanted him to BE GONE. Dammit Derek! Hehe, anyway, this was a nice little treat and takes me back to Magic Strikes, which is actually my favorite book in this series. love it.
Nice short. I always appreciate reading Curran’s side of things. Above all, I really appreciate that the Andrews team doesn’t allow their series to be brought down by gratuitous sex scenes. The plot really does remain at the forefront.

this is me reading this scene: description

This couple is sooo cute :)
Sooo, these scenes were kind of awesome:

HAHAHAHA. Curran, I can't even with you...

(view spoiler)
Yes, I read it and no, it wasn't smutty. Just lots of sexual tension & kissing. In a hot tub sans clothing. Nothing really happened. Interesting nugget of knowledge: Curran wants Kate in a 4-Evah kind of way, not just in a wham-bam-thankyou-ma'am kinda way. We sort of suspect this & of course Kate thinks Curran only views her as a challenging booty-call. He's the Alpha of the entire pack. He wants her as his mate, I'm guessing that's their way of marrying. Is that even allowed? Would she ...more
This was the first of Curran's POV snippets that I read and what a way to be introduced. ;) I loved getting inside Curran's head. If you've read Magic Strikes and you are looking for just a little bit more before you pick up Magic Bleeds, this is a perfect little diversion. I'll be wandering over to Ilona Andrews' blog from now on in search of these entertaining little snippets. My guess is that they are only going to get more and more interesting as the series goes on.

Short interlude between Curran and Kate. Nice to read the male's POV for a change.
Nice, short, and hot hot hot. I really love reading from Curran POV.

O_O *Fans self* I guess men can write a sexually filled tension scene without it resorting to porn. I like it! HAWT! Who needs fanfic of Curran and Kate when we can just twist Gordon's arm to write a smexy scene? *Psst! Send him action figures. I hear it works!*

I'm a huge fan of this series. I like it without the sex because, well, it's so good without it. Still, when I'm given a taste of it, I'm not going to say no. I do feel bad for Curran. Poor bugger. If Derek would have just wanted 5 more m
Ahhh cette scène du jacuzzi était géniale du point de vue de Kate mais elle l'est tout autant du point de vue de Curran.
J'adore la conclusion" :
"We were not finished yet, not even close. I could still smell her. I remembered what she felt like. What she tasted like. This wasn’t a casual sexual thing. This was a mating. I would have Kate as my mate. Whatever it took, no matter how long, she would be with me."

One of my favorite scenes in the whole series. There aren't many intimate moments Kate and Curran exchange in the series, so i hang on to these for dear life. Do I want sex written in the books? Absolutely! I mean, we are talking THE Beast Lord....daym he is HOT!
Can't wait for the next book!

If you don't know what that means, go away until you do.

This is one of the most univesally loved scenes in the entire Kate Daniels universe. As hot as it is from Kate's POV in Magic Strikes, in my opinion, it's even hotter from Curran's.
Shannon C.
Great scene--loved it! Especially the last paragraph, when he decided they were going to be mates.

I wish the books included Curran POVs--switch between Kate & him. But I like the freebies Gordon writes for us...I'll take them anyway we get them. :)
Absolutely love these little bits from Curran's POV. Only complaint is that it's too short!
