Review of DRINK OF ME

DRINK OF ME
Jacquelyn Frank
Kensington Publishing, November 2010
ISBN:  978-1-4201-0985-6

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 towards 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 sigh-worthy read.

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.

NOTE:  I reviewed this book for the PNR group.  I gave an impartial review.   http://paranormalromance.org/reviews/

Giveaway of Siren's Surrender

Refusing to embrace her mermaid heritage, Gwen Lonike prefers to live as a human. All she wants it to run her hotel in Port Rock Maine, in peace. But when her sister Tessa returns from the Mediterranean with news that she had inadvertently opened the gateway to a lost mermaid kingdom–and accidentally freed its dangerous queen–Gwen can no longer hide behind her idyllic life.
Covert-ops agent Blake Whittaker is far from happy when he’s assigned to trail paranormal activity back to him hometown, where he can’t escape crushing memories he’d rather forget. But when he meets and falls for Gwen, he knows he can’t cut and run. Yet how long can he hide his true mission from her? And how long can Gwen and her sisters remain safe from a nemesis bent on their destruction–and from Blake’s own superiors, whose ultimate mission could prove the greatest threat of all?


Devyn Quinn has been kind enough to offer a copy of Siren's song to one lucky commenter.  To enter just leave a comment or question for her. Giveaway ends February 7th at midnight.  Please leave an e-mail at which you can be reached.  The winner will have 72 hrs. to respond after being contacted.  Thanks to Ms. Quinn for giving such a lovely prize.
