Publisher's Summary

To the Yaguara, an ancient jaguar shape-shifting people living deep in the Amazon jungle, nothing matters more than strength. Iada is their champion; genetically pure, she has been trained since birth to fight. Her destiny is to become the next Queen of the Yaguara by winning the tournament of succession - a battle to the death.
Her opponent is Gabriel, a half-blooded outcast whose mother was human. To everyone's shock, he defeats Iada but does not strike the death blow - instead, he extends mercy, thereby claiming her as his mate.
Despite their enmity, the attraction between them is powerful, and soon they are mates in more than name only. Their mutual distrust serves only to fuel their passion - two champions bested only by their overpowering desire for each other.
But Gabriel has an agenda that threatens the most basic tenets of Yaguara society - and that will force Iada to choose between her people or her King.

This was Awesome!

I don't know why I kept this in my library unread/un-listened to for so long! What was I thinking... Man! This was sooo good. I just listen to another Eleri Stone book "Demon Crossing"(review coming soon by the way), and I was blow away on how great it was. I realized I had another Eleri Stone book already in my library, so I finally listened and guess what, I just bought book 2 and 3! This was great. The female lead was breathtakingly amazing. When I say she was a strong female lead, I mean she was a strong female lead; in fact she was the champion of the Jaguar clan.

I loved how she got married to the "Mutant" and the end, was just awesome. I really can't believe I let this book sit in my library for so long... WOW! Soooo good. The smex... Man O Man, so hot... The first smex scene by the mirror... I think I am still blushing a little. Then when the male lead, made his wife say she wanted him, DUDE! I was like... OMG!! OMG!!! This book was simply great. I can't wait to sink into book 2 and 3!

It is hard to get a 5 from me, and guess what, this got a 5!

A great credit or buy. I think the price is so low now, I would save my credit and just buy... but if you use a credit, it won't be wasted!
