Rancher Adam Sloan is more than meets the eye. As the heir to his Pack, the sexy werewolf’s biggest challenge is keeping his kin’s true nature under wraps. But a group of jaguar shifters threatens to reveal the pack, blasting into town killing humans in plain sight. And when he smells one at the local diner, his standing orders are to take her out.
Lana Turpin doesn’t realize she’s a moving target. Raised in the foster system, she only knows that she blacks out during the new moon and wakes up without remembering a thing. But now she’s being tracked by some strange organization that wants her back—even though she’s never stepped foot inside their compound. And the stranger across the diner is watching her like an enemy.
It should be a simple mission for Adam, but when he touches the frustratingly beautiful Lana, his inner wolf howls…mate. Now, the two must find and stop the people who hunt her…and Adam must keep his own family from killing the only woman he will ever love.
When Adam first meets Lana in the diner, he knows she’s a jaguar shifter and that it’s his duty to kill her… but then he touches her hand and his wolf knows it has met its mate — which goes against everything he’s been raised to believe. He knows instinctively that he will protect her with his dying breath, but with another jaguar in the area killing what can he do?
This book was cute, suspenseful and full. I did enjoy it, though I didn’t really make any notes or highlights on this, so it wasn’t something that really stood out. There were funny moments and sexy moments — obviously.
I do hope to read the upcoming books in the series because I’m interested to see how the other brothers/cousins find love. Especially Adam’s twin, Aren, who takes turns with Adam being the gruff guy with the soft interior and the sweetheart. Something happens to him towards the end of the book that gives him a different outlook on life and I really want to see where he goes — and at the end of this book, there’s a preview of the next book which will be Aren’s story. I can’t wait for that.
Again, this book was well done, had some definite moments where I laughed, one moment where I wanted to cry and felt for the characters. It was a slightly-above-average book. So a 3.5 out of 5 for this one. I really do want to see where Ms Kessler goes from here. I haven’t read anything else by her but I’d like to.
