I'd take Brand in a minute. He's gorgeous, loving and considerate. And he wants forever. Charma chooses incorrectly when she goes back to her pride, but hindsight is 20/20. I was more interested in Charma's siblings than herself - I didn't like how easily (my opinion) she let Brand go. Some might argue her sacrifice as noble, but her parents didn't deserve the loyalty she gave them, her helpless siblings did. A tough call. This is the third book in the series and once again we have a wolf mating a cat. The fallout isn't as bad as it could be since Brand's cousins have mated felines, but it gets a little dicey. The story was steamy but not too much so. A few laughs are interspersed with the tension and violence making this an engaging read.
Some people go their entire lives and never meet the one. Brand and Charma met in college but Charma couldn't have Brand for life; she'd been sold, more or less, to the Alpha's son. It was all that could be done to save her family after her father is severely injured. Fast forward years later and Brand is still single and carries the wounds of Charma's abandonment and Charma is on the run from a horrible situation. Providence places her at Brand's feet and this time he isn't listening to reason. He lost her once and barely survived - he won't let her go again.
Brand meets his dream girl in college—a half-human, half-snow leopard who’s too human to shift. Werewolves and cats are natural enemies, but the power of their sexual chemistry overwhelms them. Charma steals his heart and makes him whole…until she abandons him, fracturing his world. Brand knows no woman can ever take her place. Though many seek his attention, he is cold and unattainable.
The love they share is soul deep but the fate of Charma’s family lies in her hands. The memory of every heated touch will cut out both their hearts when she leaves, but to save them all, she must return to her pride…and to a man she loathes.
Now, after nine long years of desolation and heartbreak, Charma is back, risking her very life to warn Brand of an impending attack. He finally has her in his arms once more…and he’ll do whatever it takes to never lose her again.
