Dana is visiting Homeland when she meets a New Species who tugs at her heartstrings. As a widow, she knows firsthand the pain he’s suffering after losing his mate.

Mourn isn’t so certain that talking to a human female will help him heal but he desires her. It’s possible she could become his new reason for living.


Candi lost the male she loved, but never forgot him. New Species are her only hope to seek revenge for 927’s death.

A human female claiming to have been reared at Mercile has demanded entry to Homeland. Hero rushes to Medical and comes face-to-face with his past. One look at Candi and the life he’s built since gaining freedom comes crashing down around him.

Numbers is books 14 and 15 in the New Species series, which means we get two stories in one! I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook, which is narrated by Vanessa Chambers. Even though I had a few problems with one of the stories, I loved the way Vanessa Chambers narrated everything. Her voice is amazing to listen to, and her voices for the different characters are distinct and you can easily distinguish who’s saying what. If you’re looking to listen to a paranormal romance that’s sexy, emotional, with great narration, you should definitely give Numbers a try!

The first story in Numbers is about 140, also known as Mourn. Mourn has lost his mate, and now he feels like he has nothing to live for. Then Dana walks into his life and helps him through his grief, as she’s also lost her husband, a man she loved. Mourn and Dana’s story is my favorite of the two in Numbers – their story is heart-wrenching, emotional, and it was heart-warming to see them fall in love with each other. I liked the way these two supported one another before actually pursuing a relationship. Laurann Dohner really balanced out the sexy and sweet in this one.

The second story is 927’s, also known as Hero. This one I had a harder time enjoying because I didn’t like Hero much at the beginning of his story. When he finds out that the girl he cared about years ago, who died accidentally by his hand, is actually alive and comes back into his life, Hero has no idea what to do and pushes her away instead taking this as a second chance. It was frustrating to listen to Hero get mad at Candi doing something she had no control over. But once the two of them reconcile, I liked their story so much more. Their second chance romance is touching and Candi is a wonderful heroine I admired, with endless patience for Hero.

Both stories were about 6 hours long, and they were very well-written for novellas. Vanessa Chambers did an excellent job with her narration and I would definitely listen to another audiobook that she narrates.

  1. I’ve never heard of this series. I don’t read a lot of paranormal books, but this sounds interesting. Great covers too.
