An attraction too hot to resist, too dangerous to indulge…
Tiger shifter Dmitry Chernikov fell in the love with his brother’s head waitress the moment he saw her. Jane Emmerson is sexy, smart, stubborn…and absolutely perfect for him. Unfortunately, Jane makes it clear she’s done with men. All men. For six years, Dom has fought his feelings for the beautiful human woman, and for six years he’s managed to keep the peace between them. But when a family reunion brings him back to Eirene, Colorado—to Jane—six years of resistance crumble. Now he has to overcome her determination and convince her they’re meant for each other.
Jane Emmerson has very bad taste in men. If she’s attracted to a man, it’s a sure sign he’s bad news. When she moves back to Eirene after yet another disastrous relationship, she promises herself she’s done with romance for good. Then she meets Dom Chernikov. The deliciously sexy Dom tests her determination to remain single. Unfortunately, the very fact that she wants him means there must be something wrong with him. She can’t risk her heart again, not after working so hard to build a life for herself and her son. She doesn’t need a man. But oh, does she want this one.
To save her, he’ll have to give her up…and she won’t let him go.
Dr. Ryan Yin hates his people’s mating laws, and he’s not the only tiger shifter male who feels that way. But the grumblings of some young males, led by an enigmatic and dangerous leader, threaten his people’s survival. Ryan’s very real disgust with the Mate Run allows him to infiltrate the group, where he hopes the information he finds can stave off a civil war. He never guesses the young males will go so far as to kidnap tigresses. Now Ryan has to find a way to keep the women alive and get them to safety before anyone else dies. He never expects that among the captives he’ll find his mate. Lakshmi is strong, fierce, and beautiful…and completely beyond his reach.
As a rare female tiger shifter, Lakshmi Das was promised by her people that in exchange for taking part in the Mate Run, she and the other tigresses would be safe from the violence and bloodshed of centuries past. Her people failed in that promise. Now Lakshmi is at the mercy of a crazy tiger and his followers who are intent on turning her into a slave mate. Her only hope of escape is the group’s sexy, delicious-smelling doctor, a tiger she can’t let herself trust but who draws her like no other man she’s ever met.
Escape will come at a price neither of them expects. They’ll have to defy their people’s laws if they have any hope of being together…but only if they can survive the vengeance of an insane shifter determined to start a rebellion.
He’ll stop at nothing to get revenge…until he meets her.

After a lifetime of fighting his own kind, Nikolai Chernikov has been in self-imposed isolation for years. The taint of his father’s crimes hangs over him, and of all the infamous Chernikov brothers, Nick is most like their father. The fear that madness is only one bad decision away has kept Nick from seeking a mate for more than ten years. Then she comes into his life—the sexiest, most stunning tiger shifter Nick has ever known. Tatiana is everything he wants. And everything he can’t have.
He’s the only man she’ll accept.
Tatiana Loban-Gupta has tried to find a mate for more than three years. She was starting to lose hope when she caught Nick’s scent and her entire body lit up with need and longing.

But Nick’s family history is a wall between them she’s not sure she can breach. A fight with a werewolf pack and facing off against the other tiger males seems easy compared to fighting Nick’s demons.

She shouldn’t exist.

Stands Alone: Yes
Never kill a human.
Daniel Borowski, Tracker and enforcer of tiger shifter law, faces an impossible choice when the woman he loves is set on breaking one of their people’s most fundamental rules—don’t kill humans. Daniel’s own sense of justice cries out for the life of the man who murdered one of their own, but killing him—especially in tiger form—is an automatic death sentence. Daniel loves Sarah too much to allow her to throw her life away for revenge. But preventing her from killing could cost him any chance at a future with her.
Her soul demands blood.
Sarah Chu never imagined losing her best friend so young and in such a gruesome way. Until then, she was focused on her career as a genetics researcher and trying to get pregnant during the Mate Run so she could be with the man she loves. After her friend’s murder, Sarah can think of little beyond ripping the man responsible to pieces. So when Daniel stops her from taking her revenge, anger and frustration make her lash out at him even as the chemistry between them roars through her. If she kills the human, she’ll sacrifice the life she imagined with Daniel. If she lets the human go, she’s not sure she’ll be able to live with herself.
Justice will come at a price.
To protect Sarah, Daniel will do whatever it takes, including finding another way to get justice. Even that might not be enough for her, though. But when the murderer comes after them, intend on torture and death, Daniel and Sarah will have to choose…destroy the killer or protect their own future. Because they can’t have both.
She’ll never run.

Together, they’re unmovable.
The chemistry between them burns wickedly hot and forges them into an unbeatable pair.

But, for Victor, she will risk everything, including her life, and do what she thought she’d never do—run.
