Back Cover Blurb:
Hank expected to be paired with Miles’s brash friend Hannah, not meek and mundane Miles. But his goddess says this is his one and only chance for a mate, even if Miles is a liability in a world where shifters fight to lead and roam. Now he not only has to attend to Cougar affairs but play bodyguard, too.
Surprisingly, the sweet young woman brings his long-repressed passions roaring to life. She deserves to be loved unconditionally, but he sees her as the embodiment of everything he can’t have. Can he get his house in order to lead a group of restless Cougars and earn his mate’s trust?
Hank’s antagonism and sense of hopelessness made me want to cry. The difference between Hank and his cat with respect to Miles was obvious and comical at times. Miles’ past so affects her interactions with Hank hampering them more often than not, but also allows her to connect with the rest of the glaring.
Trent has definitely created a novel that will hold your emotions and imagination throughout. It was a fantastically romantic novel with a dash of heat to kick it into higher gear.
