Planet Eridani and Sirus's spaceship - The Future

"Sirus Parker came with his niece, Amanda, to the planet Eridani never expecting Amanda to fall in love with and marry Karrick, leader of the Wolfan Psi-Pack. And Sirus certainly didn't expect to find his mate in a sexy little tigran called Danni Johansson. He dreams about her nightly, very hot, erotic dreams that her brothers don't appreciate. <g> One of them actually steps into the dream and whacks Sirus giving him a powerful headache. That doesn't stop Sirus from wanting Danni for his own. Sirus is taking Danni to meet her real father, the Rajah, on planet...Sirus is chosen because he's a human male and therefore, when Danni goes into heat, which she will on their journey, Sirus will be immune and Danni's virginity will be safe. But...Sirus has a secret. One that could get him killed or maimed by Danni's family. How will Danni react when she discovers his secret?

"Danni Johansson is a young innocent but she simply adores Sirus. Actually, she desires him, but because she is tigran and he's human, they can never be a couple. That doesn't mean she can’t share in a little harmless flirtation now, does it? Besides, Danni is going to meet her real father and she will get her choice of mates there. The more she is around Sirus, the harder it becomes; then, when he drops a bombshell on her and the family, Danni is secretly pleased. And why not? This means that she and Sirus might just have a chance at a future together. But first, they have to reach her father before Danni goes into heat.

"A long spaceship ride, a tigran going into heat, and a healthy male who wants to bed her, are all the ingredients needed to spell triumph or disaster, depending on how you look at it. Totally awesome!!

"Cynthia Williams writes another fascinating story with BEAST OF AWAKENING. Sirus and Danni are intriguing and playful characters who grab your attention from the start. Sirus has always hidden the part of him that makes him different. He looks like a human and can pass for one without a problem. Danni is a beautiful, sensual creature who has yet to become a full-fledged woman. Once she goes through her first heat -- boy, is her man going to be tired -- then Danni will have a couple of extra powers in her arsenal. <g> It's a while before Danni and Sirus end up making love, but the foreplay leading up to it is hot enough to singe the fingertips...and some other parts as well. Secondary characters include Danni's pack brothers, Karl, Wood, and Eric, who are all overprotective to a fault, her mother who is a wonderful and caring woman, plus Karrick and Amanda (BEAST OF DREAMS) and Alexander and Bethan Logan, who were also introduced in the first book of the series, BEAST OF DREAMS.

"Titillating foreplay, humor, a bit of danger, and charming characters are what author Cynthia Williams weaves into her latest erotic tale, BEAST OF AWAKENING. I can't wait to see who will be caught next in the snare of her imagination."

From Euro-Reviews

“Amanda, is the new bride. Sirus and Danni’s interest is mutual, so her pack brothers, wolfans of the Psi Pack, decide to intercept Sirus’ dreams and decipher whether his intentions are honourable. Sirus also is psychic, and intuits the oncoming wolfan intervention through his own dream of Danni. He has always approached psychic talents ethically, refraining from intruding on others without their acknowledgment or permission. The Wolfan Psi Pack usually follows the same strictures; but in this case, the brothers’ concern for their younger sister has overruled their good sense and their ethicality.

"Danni, as a tigran female, has not yet reached her first heat, and the pack brothers fear that the human captain will have his way and leave her pregnant and alone. They’ve underestimated the depth of Sirus’ morality, though. Sirus has failed to understand that the Wolfan pack are dream-controllers, not at the mercy of the unconscious as are humans. The wolfans are the product of intelligent, compassionate genetic engineering by Dr. Alexander Logan, who’s recently wed Sirus Parker’s niece; and so is Danni, who’s been engineered as a princess with empathic talents.

"This is a lengthy but satisfying novel, which will appeal to lovers of sci-fi and paranormal, and romance fans alike. The love interest and romance plot between Danni and Sirus is both heartwarming and touching, and indeed Sirus is a hero many women would like to find for their own. He truly is an ethical and upright male. The concern of the wolfan pack for their sister Danni is also encouraging. The plot line is good, there’s plenty of background development, and the characters are strongly delineated. I give it high praise."
