Blurb: Dr. Miles Grant acknowledges that his destined mate could be either gender even though his bisexuality cost him his family and his pack. Luckily he found the Forbes Pack, who happily accepts him just as he is. What he never counted on was finding his mate in Pittsburgh or for his mate to be another species entirely—a cat!
Quincy Archer isn’t just any jaguar shifter. He is the heir to the leadership of his pride. Destined mates are nothing but legend to the nearly extinct and generally solitary jaguars, and Quincy certainly never expected to find one for himself, much less a male… or a wolf.
However, finding each other and coming to terms with their species is the least of their worries. Quincy is expected to select a proper female mate, father a cub, and take his place as heir to the pride. Except Quincy refuses, having no interest in women or leadership and knowing he isn’t right for it. But his father will stop at nothing—not even attempting to kill Miles—to get his way. Quincy and Miles must overcome many obstacles to stay together as the destined mates they’re meant to be.
Review: This story is part of a series and is best read in order.
Miles is a wolf shifter who doesn’t care what sex his mate will be, he just never expects his mate to be a cat shifter. Accepting his mating is easy but actually mating is another matter when his mate is on the run from a father who is determined that his son will mate a female and produce cubs.
Quincy would love nothing more than to claim his mate, but with the men his father has sent getting closer all the time Quincy is determined that he won’t draw danger to his mate, but when Quincy ends up in Miles’ emergency room they can no longer deny their bond.
Wow this story is a bit of a roller-coaster ride, the twists and turns were stunningly executed, the characters were well written and the storyline just draws you in.
Miles and Quincy are a fantastic couple, they just seem to slide easily into being a couple once they accept they are stronger together than they are apart. We get to know both Miles and Quincy quite well; we come to love them as they face danger that comes from unexpected quarters. What they eventually uncover is a shocking conspiracy that could see… well I’ll let you discover that for yourself 😉
This story is pretty fast paced; everything slides into place perfectly even as it surprises you. I have got to admit that the events as they unfold made perfect sense even as I was thinking ‘damn I never would have thought that’.
Oh yeah, stick around for the epilogue ‘cause it’s just so cute and sweet!
I recommend this to those who love paranormal romances that hit the right spot, who love overcoming obstacles that are far larger than first thought, who adore characters who come alive and are exceptional and those who swoon over happily ever afters!
