Hugh Marshall is disgusted when his father gives him an ultimatum. Mate with the daughters of a neighboring pride or lose his baby brother. Hugh decides to run with both of his brothers. He just has to save a family of white Bengal tigers staying in his father's territory before that can happen. Hugh is shocked when he discovers that the sweetest of the men he rescues, Kye Hara, is his mate, and that means Hugh is an alpha.

Forced to run for their lives, Hugh takes his new family and races to the only place he knows they might be safe, the home of another alpha. Stellan Mihos promised him safety, but will that still hold true when the man discovers Hugh is now an alpha in his own right? And just how pissed is he going to be when it's discovered that Stellan's brother and beta, Neumus, is also Hugh's mate? Will he help them or turn them over to those hunting them?

With his family growing every time he turns around, will Hugh be able to keep them all safe from those that want them dead? Or will he lose his new mates before he even has a chance to claim them?

Book Review

While this is still a pretty light read, just like the first book, it carries more of a serious undertone as the characters uncover some dark machinations and pride politics that had my hair stand on end in places. The bad guys from the first book are back, and while the two lion shifters and white tiger shifter are new main characters, they are linked to the three lion shifters from the first book. I liked seeing those three guys again and finding out how they did.

 

Hugh, the reluctant alpha, has suffered his father's abuse for years, and has always known he'd have to get away from him sooner or later. When the despot tries to make him mate with two women from a neighboring pride, Hugh knows it is time to go. He finds both of his mates on the way to safety, and now has to accept the fact he is not only an alpha, but suddenly has a pride as well. I had to laugh at the way that came about, and enjoyed Hugh's struggle quite a bit.

 

Kye is a white Bengal tiger and while he doesn’t want to fight, he will stand up for his mates. He is the typical 'weaker male' who can be found in so many of Stormy's books, but anyone who underestimates him based on his physical size is sorely misguided. He is very fierce when needed and not one to avoid confrontations – if he has no choice.


Neumus is the third man in this dynamic trio, and has been looking for his mate for years. Now suddenly having two doesn’t bother him in the least, on the contrary, he is quick to take advantage of the variation and additional possibilities this adds to their bedroom activities.

If you like a paranormal romance with different types of shifters trying to get along, if pride politics and dark villains with aspirations to rule the world are what you’re looking for, and if you enjoy hot bedroom interludes with three men figuring out how t please each other most, you will probably like this book.
