Book Blurb

When Pirou calls his brother Jag to the Old Tavern Club to help with a pair of lynx shifters, Jag is happy to help. Rescuing and rehabilitating big cats is his job, and it makes him the perfect person to take on the pair that Pirou has rescued from a circus.

Mates Hill and Cather were about to be put down by the circus that owned them as they refused to perform after their Master, tiger shifter Darri, was killed in an accident during his last performance. The pair have been beaten, mistreated, and are near death's door, so it's going to take all of Jag's resources to help these two kitties find themselves again.

Along the way, Jag just might find his heart in peril, too.


Book Review

The idea of a shifter rescue, a place where mistreated shifters of different varieties can find refuge from those who have abused them, is still as interesting to me as in the first book of this series. And in the current installment, it is not one but two shifters who need help - a mated pair of lynxes who are at death’s door when they arrive. Pirou, who runs the refuge, knows exactly whom to call – and as soon as his brother, Jag, arrives, things begin to change.

Jag is a jaguar shifter, and he works with big cats – not the shifter kind – in his day job. But as much as an advantage as that is, when shifters need his help his dual nature is even more useful. He has got his job cut out for him here, and it’s a good thing he is patient. Jag is pretty good at figuring out what is wrong, what the lynxes need, and he is just stubborn and dominant enough to insist things are done his way. The kits will drink the water and eat the food he gets them, and there will be cuddling.

Hill is the physically smaller of the two lynxes, and he trusts a little easier than his mate, Cather. When Jag presents fresh meat and cool water to them, Hill can’t resist for long. No matter how growly or reluctant Cather is, Hill is ready to live again – despite the terror of having lost their previous Master. Cather wants to proceed with their plan of following their Master into death, but Hill is too tempted by Jag’s care and snuggling. It takes Cather a lot longer to open up…

If you like stories about cat shifters, if a big, strong jaguar/man stepping in to save two smaller lynxes/men sounds interesting, and if you’re looking for a read full of cat pleasure, snuggles in whatever form the three shifters find themselves in, and some hot physical play once they are all in man-form, then you will probably like this sweet novella.
