Holding out for a Hero #1 in the Jelvia: Not Human series (please note that this has British English spellings).
Macy Shaw is a celebrity journalist who’s bored with the shallow celebs she has to cover, then one night her best friend is attacked but saved by a Jelvia. Macy sees this as a chance for a good story and to get her off celebrity journalism once and for all.
But once meeting the gallant Jelvia called Narcifer, she realises it has its own set of difficulties: he’s as sexy as sin and she feels an incredible attraction towards them—and she’s sure it’s mutual, but it might be wistful thinking.
And then there’s the ‘Jelvias hate Humans, Humans hate Jelvias’ thing going on. That in itself is problematic especially as Narcifer is following orders from his boss while Macy is following instructions for hers—which aggravates their mistrust of the other.
It doesn’t stop Macy from asking Narcifer for an interview. And it doesn’t stop Narcifer demanding his high price: he’s kinky and he wants Macy over his knee.
I'm going to jump in with the others who so thoroughly enjoyed this book. I think that it is a great read if you like a little more substance with your erotic books. You will be very pleasantly surprised on the deep and intriguing story you get out of it.
Macy and Narcifer are both very captivating characters. Completely different in more than just their humanity or lack of.
There is such a unique premise to this book.
