Santana's Heat

When Luc finds a trespasser hiding in his stables he never expected the intruder to be a woman, a woman who is on the verge of death and his mate at that. Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to try to kill this human on his land and he needs to know why. Santana does not care to find out who attacked her she just wants to heal and go home but little does she know she is still being hunted.

I really enjoyed this book. Santana is a great character. She is a strong willed woman who has always had to fight to stay alive and she is not stopping anytime soon. No matter what life has thrown at her she has always managed to get back on her feet. When she meets Luc she will not change in any way and Luc finds that he does not want her to, he likes her just the way she is. The two make a great couple. The love that they share is strong and shows in everything that they do. Even to the point of putting each other in danger. I enjoyed watching the bond of trust grow between these two. As the two fight to stay alive they try to figure out just what they feel for each other and what it means.

Kitty DuCane does a wonderful job of mixing action and romance in this story. I was pulled in from the first page and kept turning those pages to find out just what would happen next. Hoping that Santana and Luc would get their happy ever after before it was too late.

Book Blurb for Santana's Heat

Santana Jones barely escaped from the man-turned-wolf that attacked her during a camping trip that she’d won from a local radio station. But it turns out the radio station didn’t have a contest and she didn’t win. Then she meets the Luc who thinks he can detain her while he figures out this so-called mystery. Because of her past, allowing Luc to control her is out of the question even if he is the sexiest thing she’s ever seen and she can barely keep her hands off him.

Luc Delemere, the powerful leader of the North American werewolves, didn’t want a mate because her life would constantly be in danger. But when a bedraggled human crawls out of the icy river and stumbles into his barn, Luc finds it impossible to resist his sensual, but stubborn mate. The claw marks on her body confirm that she was attacked by a werewolf, but Luc wants to know who lured her to his land and why.

When Santana receives a note that says “Leave or Luc Dies,” she betrays Luc to save his life.

Can Luc untangle a web of lies and betrayal to find his mate before the assassin does?
