Publisher's Summary

Brand meets his dream girl in college - a half-human, half-leopard shapeshifter who cannot shift. Werewolves and cats are natural enemies but the power of their sexual chemistry overwhelms them. She steals his heart and makes him whole. When she abandons him it fractures his world, and he knows no woman can ever take her place. Though many seek his attention, he is cold and unattainable.
The love they share is soul deep, but the fate of Charma’s family lies in her hands. The memory of every heated touch they share will cut out both their hearts when she leaves him, but to save them all she must run. After nine years of desolation and heartbreak, Charma is back. She risks forfeiting her life to warn Brand of an impending attack, but she doesn’t hesitate. Brand has her in his arms once more, and he will never lose her again.

“Mine” she whispered against his skin “Fuck Yes"

Any additional comments?

Brand and Charma come from two different worlds and their kinds aren't allowed to be together. I hear you. I too hate when characters are ripped apart for years then brought back together, but this worked for me. Charma had to make some tough choices at a pretty young age. The cat shifter community runs with stricter and more harsh laws so she did what she had to do to save her family, leaving Brand behind thinking that maybe he could move on and find someone who could really be his mate...

Nine years later Charma is stuck with an abusive husband/mate who she was forced to be with to keep her family safe. He is abusive in all ways and it’s extremely heartbreaking. The first 10% really pulls at the heartstrings in making me feel for Charma and understanding why she did what she did. Now that her family is safe she could run, but she doesn't have anywhere to go and has no idea how to even find Brand. She believes the chances of him not having moved on are none. Then one day she finds out her pack is about to attack another and she sees his photo in the stack of targets. She still loves him deeply and if there is one thing she can do it is at least save his life and warn him of what’s coming...

Most of the story is a gush of love and mating heat sex with a nice dab of Action included into this wonderful mix... This book is Full of All the Good Stuff Laurann can throw into a fab story... Bring on book 4, I cant wiat :)

- karen "Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books"


I love L.D's books and I'm slowly trying to get through all of them but sadly I was disappointed with this one. Not because it's not well written or well narrated but because the H/H loved each other from the start so there was no build-up or slow sizzle. They had to part but years later when they met again it was an instant 'claiming' thing.

There was conflict between Shifter Species, a bit of tension, drama and of course sex and yes there was romance but without that slow burn and the anticipation that brings it just didn't hold my attention, I wasn't gripped and my mind drifted to other things whilst listening to it.

Worth a credit? It's a Dohner book so I should be saying YES but unfortunately, for me, this time it's got to be a NO.
