Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Kindred Souls #2
Title: Animal Attraction
Author: Patricia Rosemoor
Publisher: Tule Publishing
Published: January 8th, 2019
This is the second book in this series and I hadn’t read the first so it came as something of a surprise when I started reading it – a very pleasant surprise as I really enjoyed this paranormal romantic suspense! I found it relatively easy to understand the situation as the author’s world building quickly immersed me in the suspense filled scenarios.
The Ark is the home to members of the Kindred Lazare Clan, Chicago’s supernatural underworld. Most people know little or nothing of their existence, only those invited to visit the casino there are usually welcome to lose much more than their money but Detective Ethan Grainger has met members of the Clan because his partner, Shade, was in a relationship with one of them, Nuala Lazare, before he was killed. When a mutilated body is discovered in the park, Ethan is called in to investigate and he suspects the perpetrator could be someone from the Ark. His investigation reconnects him with the now very pregnant Nuala, who has always blamed Ethan for not protecting Shade and really doesn’t want to see him again. This is a fast paced, intriguing investigation with paranormal dangers lurking, politics, secrets and romance as well as a baby on the way!
I found this to be a real page turner, with a very different take on shifters and their relationships with each other and humans. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing as the murderer and their motives are slowly uncovered. I enjoyed discovering about the Nuala’s family and will be looking to read the first book in the series, Animal Instincts, and any further additions to the series in future. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys paranormal romantic suspense!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Detective Ethan Grainger is horrified when a public official is found dead in the park, killed by an animal. He immediately fears it’s a shifter kill and heads for The Ark, where he seeks out Nuala Lazare, a Kindred pregnant by Ethan’s late partner Shade. He’d come to terms with Chicago’s supernatural underground, but because Nuala holds him responsible for Shade’s death—and because he is attracted to her—he’s avoided her until now. Ethan is the last man Nuala wants to see, and she has enough to deal with being near term and realizing her fatherless child will be a half-breed like her brother Luc, who experienced tremendous prejudice and guilt while growing up. She plans to move from The Ark to live like a human for her daughter. Ethan must keep Shade’s child from being corrupted by the criminal element of the Kindred Lazare clan. Which means he must get close to Nuala—not an easy task. As they get to know each other, their attraction becomes unbearable. Will Ethan keep his loyalty to his murdered partner or succumb to the irresistible temptation of his chemistry with Nuala?
