Dean had a family once. Until tragedy and betrayal consumed them. Now he lives on his own terms keeping life simple and carefree. Then one night leads to one bite and he's forced back into a dangerous world that reminds him he's still as angry as ever and this time he's not leaving until he gets what he wants. Niki.
Niki Harris has lived a life of secrets and solitude with no interest in making a change. But an easy one night stand turns complicated and she finds herself marked. Now she has to decide, tell the sexy shifter with a possessive streak a mile wide she's pregnant and in danger or do what she's always done--run.
Be Were is the full story from the free first chapter bonus, White Cougar Christmas.
After reading BAD KITTY, I was excited to find out more about Niki and her extraordinary abilities. Niki is tough as nails and almost cruel in her opinion of Dean and the prospect of being a mom. Granted, Niki’s behavior is understandable as her past and her family are revealed. While Niki is all hard edges, Dean gives her balance.
Dean had a rough go of it in this book. He found his mate and when he wakes the next day, she’s gone. His estranged brother, Bhric, shows up weeks later to tell him that not only has Dean’s mate been staying at Bhirc’s bar; she’s also been kidnapped…and is pregnant.
The story is a wild, fast-paced ride filled with rescues, revelations, fights and lots of mated shifter sex. The sex scenes are graphically detailed and had me blushing a number of times. I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the next installment.
