"A great start to a steamy new series."
Artemis Gray and his two children wanted to expand and
partner up with Sylvia James but the Gray's had a strict
policy about what ingredients were and were not allowed in
the perfumes she created. Her big mistake was coming to the
party in which they would meet wearing a perfume that had
ingredients from an animal. Actually, it was a very big no-
no. Furious with them for breaking their word, Sylvia
hurled insults at them as well as her assistant Moira.
Having had enough, Moira left with Artemis when he
offered. Of course, his pick-up wasn't a typical one.
Instead of asking he basically commanded and like an animal
not a human. He was domineering, possessive, irritating as
hell and made her feel like purring like a kitten.
Artemis Gray wasn't like any other man. He was different
from the top of head with the streak of silver hair to his
gorgeous face to the body Adonis himself would beg for to
his feet -- classy yet elegant. Oh no, Artemis wasn't your
garden variety man. Instead, he was a werewolf in every
sense of the word. He howls at the moon, especially when
Moira Archer is in the room. He was instantly attracted to
her from the get go which was why it was such a big
surprise since he hadn't been attracted to any woman since
his wife had died previously.
He wanted her and that was that. He was determined to
have her at any cost. Sylvia James wasn't done with either
of them. She was vindictive and pissed so there would be
hell to pay.
PERFUMED HEAT was hot, hot, hot! The steam rolled from
the sheets when they were together. Artemis was dominating
yet caring. Moira was independent yet submissive. The two
together made bedroom magic. A great start to a steamy new
series. May the next sizzle as well, Ms. Mays!
