If you think you've lost everything. Think again.

Kitty lost her father, her home and her clan. Clinging to what's left of her pride, she's forced into the neutral zone, the supposed safe haven for half-breeds and outcasts. An attack forces her to the wrong side of the treaty line and into an even more dangerous situation. Determined to greet death with the last of her dignity, she is suddenly rescued by a tall, gorgeous...wolf???

As the next alpha leader of his pack, Rafe Comyn has more than enough to handle with pack politics and precarious treaties. The last thing he needs is a pissed off feline landing in his lap, especially when her scent triggers his overwhelming drive to mate. While the daughter of a former rival is quite a conquest, she's both forbidden and dangerous.

But as the heat of desire threatens to consume them, their differences escalate and Rafe must keep his own pack from killing the one woman he can't live without.

Elizabeth's Thoughts
Kitty is exiled to the neutral zone and branded an outcast. As she tries to settle into her new life, a band of female cougar shifters attack for revenge and retribution for the shame caused to their pack. Kitty narrowly escapes from the attack after being chased deep into wolf territory. Having collapsed near-death and found by three wolves ready to do unthinkable things to her body, she is rescued by Rafe.

After being nursed back to health, or close to it, Kitty finds she cannot deny the attraction to Rafe. Her cougar senses her mate and she wants to claim him, now. Rafe is next in line as alpha to lead his wolf pack and Kitty is denying their mating because she thinks he can do better than a damaged outcast. Mixing wolf and cougar bloodlines would be dangerous and unaccepted from many in both clans and Kitty doesn’t want to admit it, but she cares too much to see Rafe risk his future…for her. Does Rafe and Kitty have a chance of being together, or will their love and their lives be forfeited to uphold out-dated pack laws?

I really enjoyed this quick read. I loved the premise of the story and the forbidden love aspect. Kitty and Rafe are smokin’ hot together. When Kitty’s attack left her with hideous scars, Rafe still accepted and wanted her as his mate. Loved that! I loved the secondary characters and I’m looking forward to reading about them in upcoming books. A good, solid paranormal romance! 

I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
