I’m lost in the jungle, and something is stalking me.

Discovering a Mayan ruin in the Guatemalan jungle should have catapulted my archeology career, but I’m lost hours from camp. Worse, something is stalking me. It’s not a jaguar. It’s bigger than anything I’ve ever seen before and wicked fast. I can’t outrun it. I don’t have any weapons.

When it catches me…

I can’t help but think I’ve fallen back through time to the Jurassic Period, because the creature looks like a T-rex and raptor had a very vicious baby. It’s hungry, too. Very hungry. Though it doesn’t hurt me. Yet.

Then a naked man comes to my rescue. Not sus at all.

Kroktl says his squad is on a top-secret mission to Earth, and his outrageous physique certainly fits the part of a lab-created super-soldier alien. Who coincidentally smells exactly like the dino-predator that chased me.

He claims that I can help him through the heat. By the burning way he looks at me, he doesn’t mean air temperature. In fact, I suspect that I’m next on the menu. After he plays with his food. He’s even calling his squad to come see what he caught.

I don’t think I’m getting out of the jungle alive.

This is Book 1 in the Wounded Hearts series. While it can be read as a standalone, your experience will be better if you read this book first.


I've had my eye on this one since it came out as I've always been dinosaur obsessed add in some aliens and it's a must read. I've been in my alien romance era and the Dynosauros are awesome they are shifters but with a dinosaur form but aliens who are genetically engineered as elite fighters. They are awesome and I loved getting to know Kroktl. Throw in that Natalie's a archeology student who happened to run into a dinosaur creature in the jungle. 

This is a fast paced whirlwind steamy monster romance.  It's an interesting twist on the alien concept, the idea of an alien race that comes from dinosaurs. I enjoyed really enjoyed the story it was a quick read I devoured it in just over a hour and have the rest of the series on my kindle ready to go. I can't wait to see how it all plays out as Natalie meets the rest of the squad. I'm on a monster romance kick and this one just hit the spot. Perfect for fans of alien romance with a twist.
