An impulsive werecat sparks a twisted game of cat and mouse he may not survive.

Huntsmen kill Werefolk--it's what they're trained to do. Kae, a young and impetuous werecat, knows this, but it doesn't stop him from following one surly Huntsman into the bathroom of a nightclub. One spontaneous, not completely unwanted sexual encounter later, he's running for his life, pursued

This little rape-fest of a story will push your buttons if you like non-con with a happy ending. Kae is a were-housecat, and he's been eyeing an older man at a bar, but the older man turns out to be a retired Hunter (read, killer of weres) who rejects Kae pretty harshly. Kae is provoked into following the guy into the bathroom, where a little scuffle ensues...queue the start of the non-con...Kae escapes, the hunter chases, there is a game of cat and mouse, more non-con(view spoiler) ...more

First of all, I can't classify this as romance. It starts pretty, uhm, violent, I think -- in a way. There is one scene that borders to rape. But this is the world of Were and their Huntsmen, so I guess that is, well, common. But second part of the story is pretty tender. It's very good for me, though again, not really a romance.

Since it’s not the first time I greatly appreciated a story by Katica Locke, I shouldn’t be surprised by how much I enjoyed this last one; it’s only a novella, and I started reading it in a break, almost with the idea to give it a “try” taste and maybe continue later, and instead I was captivated until the last word. And trust me, you need to read that last word to fully appreciate this story.

Kae is a werecat, a little tabby domestic cat; out of boring, he cruises Tyress, a middle-age man who is

that is a beautiful and surprising love story about a werecat and a Huntsman, it`s about prejudice an seeing behind things you think to know for certain. It is short but I really enjoyed it very much. ...more

A little other worldliness, a little paranormal, a little rape - that's this story in a nutshell.

It was different. I didn't not like it. But I am not really sure I'd read another like this.
I’m really not sure how to rate this.

I am a big fan of Katica's writing, so I was unsurprised to find how much I enjoyed this book.
The characters are fantastic (it is fantasy), but at the same time grittily realistic. The suspense of their joinings - one is a Hunter and could kill the shifter at any time if he was to follow his calling; the other a shifter who could turn the Hunter into what he hates most. It's knife-edge stuff, each of their encounters.
And yet, the interactions are hot, funny and compelling, and you just hope they

Honestly, the by-play between Kae and the Huntsman creeped me out more than intrigued me. Not only was the age difference pretty much thrown up at every opportunity, there's a great deal of miscommunication and nearly all of their 'coming together' times seems to be based on force and bordering on non-con.

I just came away a little disturbed and not greatly impressed.

I agree. This is kind of a rapefest. It's also very short, and they didn't have kitty cuddling. Still, it was an interesting story with moral implications - beyond non/dub-con.

I learned at a young age that books were precious and that the written word was a powerful means of communication. Since I have social anxiety and find it hard to speak to people, writing has become my voice. I’m able to say what I really think and feel without the irrational worry that comes with speaking.

I grew up and still live in Oregon, in the beautiful Willamette Valley. I’m within walking d
