CLICK TO PURCHASE! Wildlife officer Haley can’t believe her eyes when she sees a naked man in the cage she swore held a jaguarondi. The man even has the tag that was put on the animal in his ear, but this is impossible. Further more, the man doesn’t seem to have any idea what is going on. Good thing she’s got her gun trained on him. He could be one of those poachers and had somehow gotten the animal out. Dylan thinks Haley is crazy to insist that there was an animal in the cage. All he knows is he had a blackout and found himself there instead. Then, when Haley lets her guard down, he shifts and wakes up in her home. When she shows him the pictures she took of him shifting he can hardly believe his eyes. The Amazonian woman intrigues him and he wants her. Haley wants him too, but she’s not too fond of the cat in him. But she has a way of helping him to control the beast and Dylan finds himself willing to endure her sweet torture.

Now this is a hot, hot story. Betty Hanawa has written a sensual, delicious story that takes two people and throws them together. The attraction is instantaneous and combustible; the sex is erotic and toe curling. The plot is also interesting too and an interesting take on shape shifters. This is part of a series and does need to be read together with the others as together, they provide a well-rounded story. If you only read one, it’s just a part of the whole and you’ll be wondering what happens next? Ms. Hanawa puts a lot of emotion into her story and you feel the confusion that Dylan experiences, the surprise, the red-hot lust and you’ll be rooting for the two of them. I just had to get the rest of this series to see how it all ends and to read about more of these hunky, delickable shape shifting cats. I know you lovers of all things furry, who also love lots of graphic sex will gobble these stories up, I did! So, what are you waiting for? Go grab yourself some hot shapeshifter books right now!
