Back Cover Blurb:

Willing to chance arrest and jail time, cougar-shifter Sean Fisher wants to make human Lauren Spencer his mate and Christmas is the perfect time to do it. However, on the way to obtain her parents' approval, a car runs them off the road. When Sean wakes up, he's tied up and alone, at the mercy of an anti-shifter group.

Six months ago, Lauren never would've pictured herself with a cougar-shifter, but Sean was everything she hoped for and was willing to risk it all to be his mate. Yet when a staged car crash tears him from her side, Lauren must reach out to his clan--a clan she's never met--for help before it's too late.

Can Lauren and Sean be together for Christmas? Or, will their differences be too much to overcome and rip them apart?

My Review:

Donovan has created another winning story in her Cascade Shifters series. She takes us back into to her sinfully hot and decadently dangerous world without missing a beat. This well written novella is both suspenseful and emotional. Donovan also continues to build her shifter world, broadening our horizons throughout.

I loved getting to know these new characters. The trials that they have to face and the sacrifices that they have to make are so daunting that you’re left wondering how they could possibly come to a conclusion. At the same time, the joy that they have when they’re together allows you to understand that in reality their decision wasn’t really a decision at all, but simply a fact of life for them. I also enjoyed the reappearance of characters from the other Cascade Shifters stories. Their cameos not only served to tie the series together but also allows you to place this story in the broader context of the packs as a whole.

This brilliant standalone novella is the perfect read for shifters and humans alike. The trace of heat & scent of danger will keep you on your toes while giving you a dash of Christmas spirit.
