Blurb: Dean Brooks was born a Prince, but his father’s life of luxury was never one he wanted. Determined to make his own path, he accepts the role as prince regent to a small town in the middle of nowhere known as Dahlia City. But when war threatens, Dean will do anything to prevent his father from getting involved, including taking a shifter hostage in hopes of bargaining with the neighboring pack.
Fate has played a cruel joke on the black jaguar shifter, Malachi Xavier. Or at least that’s what he thinks when he realizes the human who has imprisoned him is his mate. To make matters worse, Dean has no knowledge of their bond or its significance.
But the more time they spend together, the more neither of them can deny their feelings. Malachi will have to decide if it’s worth giving up everything he’s ever known for the human that’s captured his heart.

Review: Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!
Here is a very quick rundown so I can get straight to the good stuff.
Dean is a prince of a village stuck in the middle of the Shifter war and The Stragorri hunters. He has had enough and goes to the pack to plea with the alpha for a treaty.
Malachi is the Shaman of the pack and as soon as Dean enters, he knows he is his mate. (I know the mate thing but trust me on this one). When Dean leaves, Malachi follows out of curiosity and is accidentally swept through the portal. Dean takes him as captive as a bargaining chip.
Now, Wow again. Let me begin by saying this is book 4 of the series. I started with book three and was hooked, this one held me captive (I know couldn’t resist the pun)
This story is so full of twists and turns. First off, Dean and Malachi and the mate thing: This isn’t a run of the mill ‘you’r my mate and we fall in love’. Not even close. Dean is a bad boy and has been hurt and has sworn off love. He doesn’t believe in love and is convinced nothing will ever sway him on that. Malachi is the opposite. Sweet, good-hearted, loving and longs for love, but he realizes that Dean has his city to run and he has his pack that needs him as head healer and the fates have screwed them both royally. Then just when you think, love will win a BIG twist and a jealous lover and chapter 8 the tears flowed. (Yup, you would get an extra point for that, but can’t go over 5, sorry)Then we find out a big secret (see my recommendation). Yes, it still keeps getting better and better! Then something sweet even happens to seal the deal. So yes, WOW! I’d say start with this one you’d want to read the rest but, this one really doesn’t, mention too many character or much from the past books, but they are all good so read them anyhow!
I highly, highly recommend this if you love awesome worlds, shifters and paranormal, mate bonds, really hot-mansex, super twists, and Gods…you will have to read this one to see what I mean…!
