Book 5 in the High Plains Shifters series.

Katalina Petrova is being stalked and hunted by two men. What's the difference? One is the man she's meant to be with and longs for, her mate. The other is a madman who wants to use her for his own gain and will present her as a gift to one of his men. Why then doesn't her mate claim her and make her his? Make her safe?

Gabriel Dunham is a dying breed. A gentleman. When Katalina's doctor urges they wait as she learns to control her power he listens. But as Kat grows more out of control he decides enough is enough. But is it too late?

Gabe's gentlemanly airs were sweet, but when he cut loose watch out! While there were no surprises for me as to the villain I enjoyed the courtship and interaction of Gabe and Kat as well as characters from previous books in the series. Not as hot and steamy as I expected since they were "waiting" there were still some sexy clinches and of course the final consummation. A good read and a must if you are following the series.

Book Blurb for Lawman

In the deep of night she longs for him. Mate, lycan, lover. Her lawman. As Katalin Petrova struggles to control her wild and untamed “gift”, she yearns for the only man who can make her whole. His every touch burns, searing her with unimaginable pleasure. Only her strong, protective lover can tame the wild yearnings of her body and help her claim the power of her ancestors.

While Gabriel Dunham, lycan lieutenant of the Wolf Creek Pack, watches over his intended mate, his patience to claim her nears an end as savage need burns his body. Consumed by unbridled lust, he claims her, takes her, hoping it will be enough to protect Katalin from unseen forces determined to rip her from his arms.
