uhm... whoa.. there's a lot of sex in this book. lol. I guess thats to be expected since its a 'harlequin' book.

Reason I picked it up is because one of the authors I enjoy reading wrote the 4th book (Lord of the Abyss by Nalini Singh) of the Royal House of Shadows Series which is a collaboration of 4 authors, each writing about 1 of the four siblings.

Book 1 wasn't as good as I had hoped. I've already read a few chapters of Book 4 and loved the characters and plot, but this one just felt a bit thin.

Jane was an alright character, but Nicolai was just plane annoying! I really wanted to like him, especially how he was described haha, But he talked like Tarzan which made him seem Shallow and unintelligent. And if i read the word 'Mine' one more time, i think i'm gonna puke. A few parts disturbed me as well. The implied Sexual Abuse and Rape is a huge turnoff. Blech!

Yes certain parts were a bit steamy lol, but I'm glad this book is over and done with and I hope the other 3 books have a little more character depth (fat chance... I forget I'm reading romance books sometimes)

This book should've been called 'Lord of the Jungle' cuz Tarzan Nicolai acted like an ape!

2stars from me.
