Blurb: Seth Carmichael never did anything wrong, but instead of working at the local library, he was running for his life. His herd was hunting him and with few resources, Seth’s options were fading fast. Until, that is, he heard the rumble of a motorcycle. Peeking through the tree he was hiding in, he couldn’t believe his eyes. Had salvation come in the form of a badass biker?
Ra (no last name and proud of it) was a tiger on a mission. He’d scented his mate and then the little rabbit ran away before his teeth could engage. Ra heard the gossip around Arrowtown; he knew his mate was a hunted man. But if the sweet man was on the run, he needed someone to look after him; Ra figured he was the right man for the job.
A meeting, a mating and yet another meeting. What should have been a straight forward relationship turned into so much more on their very first outing as a mated couple. Now Ra has to count on the strength of his mate and the help of his friends, if he and Seth are ever to have the HEA they’d planned for. And what was with all these Fae turning up out of the blue?
Warning: Contains a tiger who keeps putting his foot in it; a tiny lop-eared rabbit who is stronger than he looks and a bunch of friends who’ll hide a body, no questions asked.
Review: Each book in the Arrowtown collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Lisa became a favorite author of mine when her first book came out. The characters are fully developed and easy to fall in love with, just as the story itself is. It is a very entertaining tale, but I have to say that this one tops the others. It is Lisa’s first attempt, if I understood right, at male pregnancy type stories. Which is a bonus, who wouldn’t think it funny as hell.
Seth is a very cute, little lop-eared rabbit who is on the run. He is different than the rest of the rabbit’s in his herd. He didn’t know that his herd was also stuck in the dark ages when it comes to mates. He had been happy to find his mate, even if the man was a tiger. Too bad it was against the herds law. He was in deep crap and needed help.
Ra is a tiger with no last name and a group of friends who look like the rough bikers many expect. They were making their home in a shifter town, but he was determined to find his little mate. There is a big surprise in store for them both.
I got a kick out of this story and cannot wait to start in on the next book. I love the idea of a predator being mated to a prey animal. It just means the tiger can keep his rabbit safe. I have always loved these types of story and Lisa Oliver just makes it rock. I would definitely recommend this book. Now off to read book two.
