Synopsis from Goodreads:

Kian Murray is a cougar-shifter clan leader with a problem--he has a limp. Despite earning the injury protecting a group of cubs, he feels helpless. His clan and mate deserves someone hearty and whole, and he's nothing more than a liability. The best thing he can do is give up his clan and his mate and find a way to start over.

Trinity Perez-Murray refuses to watch her mate give up his clan because of a small limp. After four months of trying and failing to bring him back from the edge, she only has one card left to play--she's going to seduce her mate. But just as her charms start to pay off, she and Kian are attacked by a group of unusual shifters.

Now it's up to Kian to help fight off the intruders. But in the heat of the moment, will his alpha instincts return and release the warrior inside?

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This story is very raw and real, with a whole lot of heat and a side of shifters that will keep you coming back for more. Donovan develops both the shifters and their story in an approachable yet enticing manner that draws you into the series as a whole. She brings this entire world to life in a manner that leaves you wanting more.

This novella is a brief introduction to the forthcoming series & the major players in it. Donovan’s very in your face writing that draws attention to the main character’s personality. She develops only the major players at this point in time, but does so in a manner that allows the reader to get to know them. I found myself wanting to see them succeed. I also am dying to get to know them better in the next instalment of the series.

This quick, hot read was the perfect introduction to Donovan’s forthcoming series. I’ll definitely be waiting with baited breath for more!
