Fury (New Species, #1) by Laurann DohnerEllie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments. Company scientists have spliced human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such “experiment” captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him—even if he hates her for it.
Fury has never known compassion or love. He’s spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. Now he’s free and set on vengeance. He vows to end her life but when she’s finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.
Fury can’t resist Ellie—the touch of her hands, her mouth on his skin, her body wrapped around his. He’s obsessed with the scent of his woman. And Ellie wants Fury—always has. She craves his big, powerful body and wants to heal his desolate heart.
But loving Fury is one thing…taming him is another.

10 Experiments That Have Created Real Human-Animal Hybrids
Some unusual embryos may soon be growing in Japan: those of human-mouse and human-rat hybrids, news sources are reporting. A research group in Japan received approval from a committee in the Japanese government on July 24 to move forward with an experiment that will put a type of human stem cells cells that can grow into almost any cell into animal embryos. Once inside the embryos, the human cells — called induced pluripotent stem iPS cells — may grow into specific organs. If all goes well, the researchers plan to eventually grow human organs in other animals, such as pigs. Perhaps these organs could one day be used for organ transplants in people, the researchers said.
The terms human—animal hybrid and animal—human hybrid refer to an entity that incorporates elements from both humans and non-human animals.

Scientists hope the chimera embryos represent key steps toward life-saving lab-grown organs.
Last week, news broke that a prominent stem cell researcher is making human-monkey chimeras in a secretive lab in China. First, its protagonist is the highly-respected Dr. His other fascination? Their frustration is understandable. And despite efforts to revamp its reputation in biomedical research ethics, China does have slacker rules in primate research compared to Western countries.
Japan's government approved a request by scientists to conduct stem-cell experiments to create an animal-human hybrid and allow it to be brought to term. Japan's science ministry last week gave provisional approval to a proposal from researchers at the University of Tokyo to create animal embryos that contain human cells and transplant them into surrogate animals, Japan's Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported. The study would create a human pancreas in rodents using human induced pluripotent stem iPS cells. These are cells that have been reprogrammed back into an embryo-like state and can be used to create virtually any other type of cell. Final approval from the ministry is expected next month, according to the British scientific journal Nature. According to Asahi, researchers will take fertilized eggs from rodents that have been gene-edited to remove the ability to produce a pancreas themselves. To this, they will add human iPS cells to create hybrid animal-human embryos.
Merging animal and human forms brought terror to our ancestors — and this fear persists right the way into our modern age. While this scientific advance offers the prospect of growing human organs inside animals for use in transplants, it can also leave some people with a queasy feeling. View image of Credit: Science Photo Library. Yet there are a few enduring aspects to the way we perceive human-animal hybrids that makes it difficult to think about them clearly. Many of us are like six-year-olds who turn their nose up at the idea of mixing their broccoli with their mashed potato.
