Valiant (New Species # 3)

By Laurann Dohner


Tammy has always tried to be prepared for any calamity life might send her way, but a sexy, lion man-beast is way outside the norm. He’s huge, has the most exotic, golden cat-eyes she’s ever seen—and she’s so terrified of him, she’s speechless for the first time in her life. He’s stalking closer, growling at her, and she’s too unnerved to even flee.

Valiant has always hated humans. But when he gets a whiff of the adorable human female who has invaded his territory, he’s forced to reexamine his feelings on the matter. Her fear scents of pure, sweet temptation and the closer he gets, the more appealing she becomes. Once he’s got his hands on her, he isn’t about to let go. One thought will change his life. MINE!

Before Tammy can regain her senses, she’s flat on her back in Valiant’s bed. Now he just has to use every inch of his big, buff body to convince her to stay with him forever.


VALIANT is the third book in the New Species series, and Valiant is one of my favorites because of how incredibly sweet he is.  Sure, he can hunt and kill animals bare-handed.  Sure, he’s scary looking, growls a lot, and even other New Species are afraid of him.  But man, when he cares about something or someone, he is incredibly kind, sweet and very easy to love.  All he wants is companionship, a mate, and when he finds it in Tammy, he’ll do anything to keep her.

Tammy is lovely and she takes to living around New Species very well, but I can’t say much about her because in my opinion, Valiant really stole the show.

As with the previous two books in this series, there are scenes of brief torture that includes the threat of rape, which may be triggers for some readers.  We find out that there are still some Mercile facilities that haven’t yet been raided where New Species are still waiting to be freed.  We got to see a bit more of Slade and Trisha, who were hilarious in trying to keep their relationship and pregnancy a secret from Tammy.  VALIANT is told in dual POVs and comes with a HEA for Valiant and Tammy.
