Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Byrd (Last Wolf Watching) successfully combines a haunting love story with complex world-building in the first volume of her Primal Instinct urban fantasy romance series. At first, Ian Buchanan refuses to listen to Molly Stratton's claims of a psychic connection to his dead mother, but then the petite blonde shows up with bite marks on her neck matching those he'd given her in a sexually charged dream. Ian soon realizes he must free his long-denied animal nature in order to battle an inhuman danger. His beast-self demands to be fed with violent sex, but Ian can't bring himself to harm Molly. His reluctance threatens their burgeoning relationship and could allow evil a toehold in the world. The love scenes are less raw than some in Byrd's earlier books, but the intense emotional and sexual connection between her leads remains. (Apr.)

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Ian Buchanan is haunted by the darkness threatening to break through his formidable control. Nightmares plague him where fangs spring from his gums and blood cascades down his throat from the willing neck of a brunette gypsy. Terrified and soaked with sweat, Ian fears the dreams where he ceases to be human. But one little brown-eyed woman is about to make him face the darkness, whether he wants to or not.

Molly Stratton has finally given in to the demands of Ian's deceased mother, Elaina. Molly has been able to communicate with ghosts since high school. Coming to her in her dreams, these determined spirits hound Molly into complying with their last wishes such as "Tell so and so this", or "Give so and so that". Generally trivial stuff, but Elaina wants Molly to pass information to her eldest son, Ian, that very well could save his life. Now, if only she can get him to believe her.

It's never been a secret to anyone whose ever been in contact with Ian, that he's quick to judge and generally just an all around belligerent jerk. From the moment Ian spots Molly, he knows she's trouble and trouble in any form is something that Ian wants to stay as far away from as possible. When the little blond starts talking ghosts and the whisperings of his deceased mother, Ian strives to keep himself from grabbing the woman and shoving her beautiful butt back into her car and back to where ever it is she hails from. But when Molly makes mention of the darkness within him, Ian is stupefied and even more determined to get away from her.

But Molly follows Ian right into his nightmares except this time instead of the brunette gypsy, it's Molly he's thrusting into and indulging in his primal craving - sinking his fangs into her neck and drinking the sweetest nectar he's ever tasted.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I decided to try Byrd's book because it sounded promising. Unfortunately, the book never really gelled for me. Ian seemed to be a very whiny hero who kept getting on my nerves by denying "the beast" within. Who wants to read a paranormal romance where the shape-shifting hero not only denies his nature but does it until the very end of the book. The heroine really didn't strike me as someone he'd be absolutely wild over either. She was very placid and almost seemed to disappear from the book as we focused on Ian's inner dialogue. I really didn't know why the two of them were together at all and the "falling in love" just didn't seem believable to me. The world building was o.k. but a lot of the pieces just seemed randomly thrown together. How the bad guys came to Ian's dimension was a little strange and at one point the bad guys multiplied but without any ensuing mayhem. Why didn't the "watchmen" or guardians with special powers know what was going on? Also, if the Merrick was so all powerful why don't they know anything about themselves. The hero was way too vulnerable to be effective. Maybe the next story will be a little more developed.

Molly Stratton is never sure how people will take her when she tells them she is psychic and has a message for them. This time she really isn't sure how she will be accepted when she states just who sent her. Ian's deceased Mother who he was estranged from, and why, it is time for his destiny. Molly learned long ago to pay attention when she is contacted with a message; it's the delivery that can be touchy.

Ian Buchanan left home very young to try and live a normal life. Ian knew that his mother always told him that there was something special about his family. She also wanted him to deal with understanding it as a child, which was not what Ian wanted. He knows there is something dark in him and lately his dreams have shown wild gatherings and sex. Ian is determined to not let that darkness out, much less learn how to live and work with it like his mother always wanted him to.

Molly and Ian don't exactly have a meeting of the minds when they first meet, but Molly is not going to let his stubborn denial stop her from delivering the entire message. Ian doesn't want anything to do with it, no matter how sexy the messenger is. That is until part of the message comes true, a deadly part. Ian and Molly have to figure out where the danger is coming from and how to deal with it - fast. Help is offered but is it from friend or foe? Ian and Molly will need to make correct and fast decisions if they are going to live long enough to discover their newfound love.

Do you believe in the unseen? Molly has learned to and she will have to convince Ian in Edge of Hunger. Molly has spent her adult life never knowing when a spirit will appear needing something from her. Ian has led a rough and tumbled life since leaving home young.
