Blurb: Landyn isn’t looking for a lover let alone a mate. He’s just trying to adjust to life in a new pride where his rank has been taken and he’s forced to earn the respect of strangers. Although he’s lonely and his cat has a craving for a certain sexy lion, he’s not going near Emil.
Emil knows Landyn is a man he needs in his life, but Landyn is so deep in the closet he won’t even accept a date from him. But he has no intentions of taking no for an answer.
When a chance meeting leads to a walk in the park, Landyn accidental marks Emil and the lion is more than up to the challenge of claiming his mate even if he has to stalk the jaguar with patience.
However, time might be the enemy as the conflict with the jackals heats up and lives are put on the line
Review: Each book in the Wildcat County collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
This series is actually connected to another series, Peyton City. You will get characters from both series mixing together. I will admit that this series is very complex and somewhat complicated. I will also admit that I sometimes get the guys mixed up. This is one of those stories that you must read in order and not as a stand alone type of story. The story is that complex and very fast pace. For me it is a must to read them right before I read a new one otherwise my butt gets real lost with all the characters. There is quite a bit of new characters as well as old ones and it can be a bit confusing to figure out who is who and what is what. The story is real complex for me, but still fun to read.
Landyn is a jaguar shifter who doesn’t want a mate. He is so far in the closet that he fears coming out. The thing is, his mate just so happens to be a powerful lion shifter who is going to go all out to get him. Well one night, one sweet walk, and his jaguar takes the decision out of his hands.
Emil protects those around him and wants his mate. He knows deep down his mate wants him, but getting him to admit it might be too much. To top it of the jackals are at it again.
It is a very action pact series and you never know what is going to happen next. However it is also very hard to follow also. I had trouble figuring out who was trying to cause problems but damn it was fun to figure it out.
I had a lot of fun with this book and can not wait to start the next one. I would definitely recommend it and the others.
