Book Blurb

Human Ronnie Lantess is no one’s hero. He isn’t even moderately courageous. He delivers mail during the day and at night watches television or hangs out with his biker friends.


Life takes a dangerous turn when shifter tiger agent Maksim Andrichuk throws him over his shoulder and announces they are mates. How is a terrified Ronnie going to cope? 


Shifter Maksim Andrichuk is the law, judge, and jury for the big cats. He executes his decisions with cool, calculated power. Meeting his mate was a dream come true. Finding out that Ronnie turns into a shaking mass of fear during violent situations is a nightmare for a man whose duties include claws, blood, and death. For the first time in four hundred years, Maksim is at a loss for what to do. Someone or something has to change—but who or what?


Book Review

Normally I have not been reading this series back to back - I’ve been giving it a few days in between each to make sure I’m coming into the world still fresh, so to speak. However, considering that Ronnie met his mate, Maksim, while cowering in a corner after seeing four guys shift into lions, and then Ronnie’s friend, Silver, killed one with a shotgun, all in the previous novella… Well, I really needed to jump right in and see how poor Ronnie is handling his introduction to not only the paranormal world, but his very large tiger shifter mate who is also an agent for the council. Scary things, indeed!

How could Ronnie possibly say no to Maksim when everything he has ever wanted - acceptance, love, need, and home - was right there for the taking? Of course, Ronnie takes a while to grasp the full significance of being mates (much less lubirea mai once that’s discovered) and it drives Maksim and his tiger a wee bit crazy. See, council agents aren’t known as being particularly flexible in their umm, how should I put this? They don’t like hearing no and they expect every word out of their mouths to be obeyed… immediately, no questions asked. Now, Ronnie might not be the most courageous soul, but he’s got some spunk backed up with a little snark, and he isn’t afraid to use it. And once Maksim understands the reason for Ronnie’s fear about violence and bloodshed, it is much easier for Maksim to help his mate with his fears. Of course, who is going to help Maksim when Ronnie’s grandmother interrogates him?

This might be my favorite of the series, to be honest. Ronnie really got his hooks into me plus the sideline regarding the two orphaned cougar cubs just had me aww’ing all over the place. Plus, Harold and Grandma were two wonderful secondary characters that I would love to see more of. I definitely wouldn’t say no to more stories in this series *hint*.
