About the Book

All it takes is one mistake to be marked. One bite, she crosses a line…into forever.

Diana Hambre’s body is blazing. For days this leopardess shifter has spun through a body-searing heat cycle. Alone. Her senses reel when Shawn Barclay, her boss, walks into her reserved room at the Downtown Den, a stud club for shifters. He gives Diana a choice: spend the evening with him, give into his every desire, and she’ll find out what it means to quench her heat-crazed thirst—or try her luck with a stranger, one of the club bangers.

Shawn hates when his back is against the wall. One sip of Diana’s pheromone-laced scent is enough to force his alpha hand. The tables have turned and it’s Diana’s back he wants up against a wall, or any other surface for that matter.

As the moon rises toward midnight, Shawn and Diana come to understand the difference between sex and bonding. For a night, neither of them resist their primal instincts, blindly giving into carnal desire. Her wild nature fights being subdued and she risks spontaneously shifting without warning.

Now, bearing Shawn’s bite marks, she can’t simply walk away from him; not when he has the means to teach her to harness her leopardess nature. Shawn accepts the challenge of training Diana to control her untamed cravings. Employing every method available in and out of the bedroom, he discovers he’s on the verge of ensnaring himself in the process.

Warning: Erotic scenes hot enough to peel paint.

My Review

My Rating: 5 Big Stars!

” ‘You’re right about this being about sex. But sex is power, make no mistake.’ “

From the intense and sexually charged first pages, to the romantic finale, I LOVED THIS BOOK. It is scorchingly HOT: a fantastic mix of shifters, human emotion, fantastically written sex scenes, all darkly tinged with power, dominance, and submission.

What should have been one night becomes so much more; it becomes everything. Before we even even meet Shawn, the sexual tension in Diana’s first scenes is positively sizzling, and when Shawn enters, the real fireworks start. This book is filled with fantastic sex scenes: at times sensual, and other times edgy and gritty, but always mind-blowing.

I enjoyed every bit of this book, not just the sex. The shifter storyline was woven seamlessly through the human storyline and I soon forgot this was a “shifter book”. Diana and Shawn must face their pasts in order to be together. They must accept their true selves and find a way for two very strong personalities to mesh, despite uncertainties and misgivings. I am crazy about Shawn’s sexy, dominate, protectiveness. He is an extremely strong character; he has to be, if he has any chance at taming the nearly equally strong-willed and powerful Diane.

This book as a whole: sex, plot, action, and romance is intense to say the least. I was captivated from beginning to end. Already a fan of this author, I love how I’m once again impressed by her ability to draw the reader completely in to whichever amazing, unique story she chooses to create for us.

” ‘Your first mistake was believing I’d be fair. When it comes to having you… baby, I’m not playing some game. If there are rules, I’ll break every one of them to get to you. That’s my promise. I get you in the end. I’ll destroy anything -anyone- that stands in my way.’

No more words. Syllables spoken were useless. He kissed her in a way that left them both breathless. He kissed her to remember. He kissed her to make sure she’d find her way back. He kissed hello, not goodbye.”

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
