"vivid world-building and compelling characters"
Reule, the Prime of the Sange people, takes his Pack on a
hunt for one of their pack members who has been captured by
the Jakals, a race that gets pleasure from the torture of
others. When Reule and his Pack find the Jakals in a
dilapidated building, they also find a woman, who has been
beaten and is in bad shape. Reule, whose people have been
persecuted, doesn't know whether he can trust her but can't
seem to help himself from feeling an attachment toward
her. After Reule gives her the name Mystique, they become
closer, but is the woman as innocent as she appears?
DRINK OF ME is a marvelous paranormal romance with vivid
world-building and compelling characters. Ms. Frank lured
me into her world and kept me entranced throughout the
entire story. She creates a world, which is, at times
harsh, but beautiful. Reule is a great hero, who is the
leader of his people and, therefore, has great
responsibilities. He has overcome much and is, almost,
afraid to love. Mystique is fragile, but determined. I
enjoyed the fact that she overcomes Reule's protectiveness
with her fierce need to help. These two are a wonderful
compliment to each other, and their romance makes for a
I don't know, if this is the beginning of a series, but I
sure hope it is. Ms. Frank captivated me, and I really
want to return to her world and find out what happens to
the other Pack members.

In a world where emotion can be a deadly weapon, one slight, battered runaway holds the key to a dark and twisted enigma..."Drink Of Me", she whispers, her silver eyes trusting, pleading. What female dares speak such words to one of the Sange? His people are scorned by every race for their fierce sensuality, their fearful rituals. And as Prime, Reule is the most telepathically gifted of them all. But nothing has prepared him for the intensity of emotion radiating from the outlander rescued by his Pack. Terrified, tormented, but beautiful beyond measure, Mystique shatters his legendary control. As she reaches for him in the steamy heat of the healing baths, he knows this blind need can have but one end... In blood, in knowledge, in ecstasy.
