it was amazing

Many have (correctly, IMO) drawn comparisons between this series and Lora Leigh's Breeds series. There are some differences, and those differences make this series one I intend to continue reading.

Pharmaceutical company Mercile Industries has come up with a highly unethical and inhumane way to test new drugs. They have spliced human and animal DNA together, and kept the resulting species as captive test subjects. Ellie Brewer is a nurse in Mercile's corporate offices who is recruited to go undercover to determine if this is true. She becomes attracted to one of the test subjects, #416, and eventually saves him from a brutal assault (which is too disgusting to describe here) by another lab worker. The aftermath of this incident eventually leads to the discovery of the New Species by the outside world. Now they have to find their place in the world. while some people see them as less than human, and undeserving of human rights.

Against this backdrop Ellie and #416 (now named Fury) cross paths again. Fury feels betrayed by Ellie's actions at their last meeting, but he is also seriously attracted to her. Their developing relationship, while trying to overcome cultural (for lack of a better word) differences, and keeping the outside world from affecting them, makes for a sometimes emotiionally charged story.

There is no "mating heat", and pregnancy may not even be possible, but Fury and Ellie are determined to make their relationship work in this new world they both inhabit. My hopes are high for this series.
