It’s tough being a cat in a dog eat dog world. Something that Katrina Walker learned the hard way being a were-cat raised by a pack of werewolves. And after her taboo love affair with the future Alpha is discovered, Kat has no choice but to leave the only home and man she’s ever loved behind for good. Or so she thought…

Seven years later Kat is forced to return to pack lands and the man she left behind. But Jason Benson has changed, and so has she. Will she find her way back into the arms of her first love, or will James, the mysterious were-cat wriggle his way into her heart?

Kat is a were-jaguar who was raised by werewolves when her family was killed in an accident. None of the wolves know anything about jaguars, so everything that she knows about being a shifter, she’s learned from the wolves. Which you can imagine is like having a father trying to raise his little girl on his own. He doesn’t really understand what really happens to women during that time of the month, he doesn’t fully understand our mood swings or what makes us tick. Such is the case with Kat and her adoptive parents. They’ve treated her like a wolf but she has no clue what being a were-jaguar means and how many differences there are between werewolves and were-jaguars.

Since she grew up with wolves, it is no surprise that she falls in love with a wolf. He’s not just any wolf though, he’s the next in line to be Alpha of the pack. So their affair is secret until the day comes that he must choose, become alpha and choose a rightful mate (one being of the same species) or run away with Kat and turn his back on his pack. Kat decides that instead of making him choose, she’ll leave and make the choice easier on him.

Which is where the story really starts… 5 years later with her living with a human. She’s having all these crazy hormonal problems. One night she’s hot and bothered and decides to go out to get some food in the middle of the night, which is where she runs into three men who turn out to be were-jaguars just like her. That’s when the story really takes off running… literally.

I must be honest that when I read the synopsis I was both excited and really nervous. Excited because I’m a huge fan of D.T’s. I fell in love with her dragon trilogy and I’ve been reading everything she’s written since. But I was nervous because my initial thought was, Mercy Thompson (the coyote who was raised by wolves who then fell in love with the alpha)… but this is nothing like that. There’s hierarchy (and I’m not just talking Alpha/Beta stuff), lots of sex, lots of drama and two “Adams”. Two is always better than one. Especially when it comes to man candy. However, Kat has a lot of learning and growing to do. In this book she’s extremely naive and is really impulsive. She’s no idea how things are run in the jaguar world and she starts to learn that towards the end of this book. So I’m really interested to see how she grows as a character.

All in all I am really excited over this series. This is an erotic paranormal romance so expect a lot of sex/sexual related scenes. Anyone who likes some good smut with some paranormal running through it, needs to read this. I’m really excited for the next two books in the trilogy. I liked that the author didn’t just stick with one shifter in this book but instead we get werewolves and werecats.  She definitely knows how to pull the readers in and makes them root for all the characters. I found myself really invested in the story and even found myself on the edge of my seat at times.
