An interesting start to a new series about were shifters. This book was short but quite a bit was packed into it. Lyra is a werewolf living apart from her pack. She's a doctor who treats the were species, living her life quite happily, until she is attacked, badly beaten and left to die in the were leopard territory. She struggles to survive and tries to reach civilisation. When she comes face to face with a leopard she tries to flee but is not strong enough and her stamina gives out. She wakes ...more

A tale of forbidden love and attempted murder.

Lyra is a werewolf left for dead in were-leopard territory. Fortunately for her she's to strong-willed and stubborn to actually die. A strong alpha-female she goes head to head with the alpha-males in this book. I love how she gives them what-for, yet is still able to channel her feminine side when needed.

Zander is your typical strong, sexy, alpha-male. The connection between these two is instant and hot. Yet for the good of their families and spec

Wasn't expecting a lot from this book and wasn't wrong. It wasn't that the characters grew too fast or that it wasn't that original for me but the fact that the book was too damn short and didn't even begin to discuss the plot, I'm assuming the next novel will tell who planned to kill Lyra but I don't intend to find out. The author set up an interesting scenario and instead of dealing with it and devealing into the mysteries all there was was sex scenes. >=(

Zander felt overly protective of Ly

This insta-mate shifter story was hot, but it felt like a lot of pieces were missing, particularly why Lyra was so estranged from her family. The other bits, like who is the enemy, and maybe why their mating is forbidden, I would hope will be filled in later in the series.
Whooo!! What a great book!
I loved both Zander and Lyra <3 wish we had more of their story and their life together ... But
Quick & hot. Steamy, easy read. Sometimes that's just what the doctor ordered.

This was a very good start to a new series!!! Very fast paced & enjoyable characters!! Action packed & HOT sex scenes!! Can't wait to read the next installment in this series!! :-)
Very short (only about 55 pages or so) but a good story cramed in there. I wish it would have been longer!

taking a break from historical smut with some shifter smut :). read this whole series of stories in a few hours; this was definitely the best of the four IMHO.

Very short but still a great read. I guess it's too much to hope that the next novel continues on with Zander and Lyra being the stars?
Two shifters- one wolf, one leopard -find love despite the grudge between their breeds. It's pretty damn good. Very well written and HOT too!

Shifters "gifted" by Greek gods? Hell yes! Love this twist, and the series actually have some political tension, which is a great touch. I wish it was longer :-)
