Hawk Donovan travels to North Carolina following a clue that his and his sister's birth mother might be there. He hopes to help his pregnant twin, who's having seizures and flashes of precognition. He carries with him a secret about his life. Veterinarian Sheryl Eldanis has sworn off men after a relationship gone very bad. But fate brings Hawk and Sheryl together in A Touch of the Beast (4) by Linda Winstead Jones, part of the Family Secrets: The Next Generation series. This is a complicated book, carrying not only its story but also continuing the earlier ones. Although this causes some confusion at times, the characters are so well developed, the sexual tension so hot and Hawk so well drawn and integrated into the story that the concentration the story demands pays off richly.
