Drink Of Me by Jacquelyn Frank



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...(Amazon.com)

Okay, definitely one of the most gripping stories I have ever read.  In fact this book has made me look up Jacquelyn Frank's other works but this would still remain my favorite.  The synopsis just gives the basic premise of the novel but Ms. Frank's writing style definitely gives it dimension.  
The scene opens with the Sange, Reule and his packmates, looking for one of their own who was attacked and held hostage by the Jakals.  They find him but finds someone else as well.  A woman who whispers in Reule's mind, "Drink of Me".  When Reule finds her his life is never the same again.

The prose is excellent, the world building is good that you definitely get the picture of the landscape as it unfolds slowly.  We are introduced to the Sange, of which Reule is Prime, the ruler.  Being a paranormal romance you start thinking is it vampires, shape shifters or another being.  Lets just say in this world, there are no conventional boundaries.  The Sange are definite blood drinkers but with the  pack mentality of shape shifters.  They believe in having one true mate and have psychical powers.    Mystique, as her name implies, definitely holds a lot of mystery and her paranormal abilities seems to go on to the side of the Psychical but she definitely is human.  The secondary characters hold the readers interest as well that you end up wanting them to have their own book.  Sadly, this is a stand alone novel, despite the fact that the elaborate world building is so engrossing that it could definitely support a series.  Another of the book's strength is the authors unique writing style of which I love.  I mean its a romance the prose is a plus and its also really hot!  Sensuality definitely oozes from the pages when Reule and Mystique are in a scene together.

If you are a fan of the paranormal mystery romance genre you will definitely like Drink From Me.

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making. Pretty soon you will be amazed on the intricate storyline balanced well with the main characters developing romance.  Fool Me Once is definitely a Catherine Bybee book.  The first in her new series, First Wives,  Fool Me Once is also a spinoff from her popular Weekday Bride series.  And yet again, Ms. Bybee delivers in her great characters, well thought out plot and melding her two series together without one overpowering the other.
The story starts out as the head of Alliance and their legal go to person, Lori try to help one of their client who unexpectedly lost her husband.  To get her away …

“That was…interesting.” “I never thought I’d see those two mediums used together.” “I may have to stab my own eyes out to make sure I never see it again,” Brooke said and then shuddered. They had just left the art gallery, and she waited until they were at the corner before looking at Owen. “I…
