Title: Darkness Bound
Tough, smart, and seriously ambitious, reporter Jacqueline “Jack” Dolan despises the secretive clan of shape-shifters known as the Ikati—and has become determined to destroy them. After she writes an editorial arguing for their extermination and turns public opinion against them, the Ikati vow to fight back. They plot to send one of their own to seduce the reporter, then blackmail her into writing a retraction.
Women practically fall at the feet of hulking, handsome Hawk Luna, and Hawk relishes the idea of conquering and destroying the fiery redhead who’s caused so much trouble for his kind. The last thing he expects is to develop real feelings for her, but their liaison awakens a hunger in him that he cannot deny. He kidnaps Jack and brings her to his Amazon jungle colony, but the two lovers are soon embroiled in deadly colony politics and threatened by a looming global species war.
As the danger around them grows closer, Jack and Hawk’s forbidden passion may build a bridge between two ancient enemies—or cost them both their lives.

This book was slightly different than the other books in the series. Despite the differences of the main characters backgrounds and things I still really enjoyed reading the story of Jack and Hawk.
Jack is a tough girl but she has had to be given the things that happened to her in the past and the situations she puts herself in for her job. I admire her backbone and the fact that she captured Hawk’s heart. When Jack offered to take Hawk’s punishment I knew that she would win over the Ikati very easily but still it was enjoyable to watch it happen.
Hawk doesn’t see himself worthy of anything, thanks to his father the previous alpha, until he has something worth fighting for. I was really hoping that Hawk would get his younger brother, who is the current alpha, straightened out or take his place because he is not a good leader. The author managed to have another two character who end up being perfect for each other even though at first you think it would never work out.
I love that each book focuses on a main couple but in addition still continues with the others from previous books and has an overall storyline continuing with the main storyline. It makes the stories so much more multi-dimensional. The characters as always are great and the story flows well and while you know what is going to happen at times the author still manages to surprise you along the way. I can’t wait for the final showdown that this series is building up to but I also don’t want the series to ever end either. So here’s to hoping for many more books in this series!
If you are looking for a new series to start or just a new read to get in to, I recommend checking out this series.
