Viggo Cavanaugh leads an easy life. The European wildcat shifter loves his work as a climbing coach and travel guide, and he’s looking forward to meeting his mate and raising a passel of kittens with her. His life spins out of control when he returns home from a business trip to find his mate already waiting for him. His male mate.
Jaxon’s life has been in upheaval since he’s defied his Alpha and risked his life to rescue a shifter held captive by his herd. Luckily, the deer shifter has found shelter with a pride of cats. Jaxon is overjoyed when he scents his mate in Beta Alan’s home, even if his mate’s gender takes him by surprise.
Too bad Jaxon’s past soon catches up with him. His ex-Alpha kidnaps Xander, the Wildcat Hills Pride’s leader, in order to get his hands on Jaxon.
Between rescue missions, new friends, a dubious ambassador for the shifter Council, and Viggo’s erratic behavior, Jaxon wonders if he and Viggo will ever have a chance at a relationship.

Review: Each book in the Wildcat Hills Pride collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. But, it is by no means necessary.
Viggo has always wanted a mate, but he had never expected his mate to be a guy. He is having a difficult time getting over the fact that Jaxon was his mate. So imagine his surprise when he got home from work to find out. To top it top it off Jaxon’s herd wanted him back, so they kidnapped Viggo’s Alpha to get it done.
Jaxon was pretty much the same as Viggo, except he had a bit more time to get use to the idea. He also wanted Viggo no matter what. And his damn ex-Alpha kidnaps Xander to get him back. They both will protect each other with everything in them, now if only they could get to the claiming.
I absolutely adored the crazy nurse that refuses to go home. This story was a blast and I had so much fun reading it. I think Liza Kay is going to be a new favorite author for me.
