Loyalties will be tested. 
Brooding leader of
the Black Claw Shadows, Drake is still haunted by the loss of his twin sister
over a decade ago. Tasked with investigating a string of female kidnappings in
the jaguar shifter world, he’s also asked to protect the Leo’s only daughter,
who turns out to be a lot more than he bargained for. 
Betrayals will be revealed.
Headstrong daughter
of the pride’s Leo, Neve wants more from life than to be mated and produce the
next generation of shifters. When her cousin mysteriously disappears, Neve
knows she’s become the latest victim of the rash of abductions. Willing to do
anything to save her, she demands that her Shadow-turned-babysitter allows her
to tag along on his investigation.
Delving deeper into
the mystery together, will they be able to ignore the building attraction between
them, or will their mate bond prove to be too strong?

Excerpt
She flung
open the front door and walked out onto the porch, planting her hands on the
railing and leaning into them. Sucking in a few mouthfuls of cool night air,
she looked up to find Drake standing at the bottom of the stairs, his eyes
reflecting the light coming from the house.
What are you doing out here?” she demanded, embarrassed she’d been
caught less than composed for a second time in an hour.
I could ask you the same thing.”
She
narrowed her eyes at him.
You’re infuriating.”
His mouth
flexed into a sinful smile.
I’ve never been called that before. Stubborn.
Unyielding. Hard.” Jesus.
All of those things.” He climbed the
steps, and she turned to face him.
But never infuriating. I think most people
would be too afraid to tell me that to my face.”
She darted
her gaze to his mouth and let out a shuddering breath.
Why are you out of the house by yourself?”
I’m not by myself. You’re here,” she replied sweetly.
You know what I mean.”
She
bristled, but kept her anger locked down.
I can look after myself.”
Your father has given me a direct order to guard your,” his eyes drifted
down hungrily, “body, and I’m a real stickler for rules and order.”
She glared
at him.
I just bet you are, but you should know I’ll make your life a
nightmare.”
His mouth
curled into a mocking smile.
You already do, sweetheart.”
Shaking her
head, she said,
I don’t need you here when I’m at home. I don’t
even know why you’re still here, lurking outside the front of my house like a
goddamn stalker.”
Your father wants me with you twenty-four-seven, so you’d better get
used to seeing my face.”
She didn’t
miss the fact he didn’t answer her other question.
I still want my privacy.”
Bathroom and shower breaks. All other times, you’re going to think I’m
glued to your ass.”
Wow. That
was an interesting visual, but it wasn’t wholly unappealing.
