Blurb: The last thing Jake Sullivan wanted to do upon returning to the city was get involved in the ongoing struggle between the organized militia and the fox people. After saving a fox child from bullies, however, he finds himself in the heart of the foxes’ slums, where showing his face as a human can be just as dangerous as messing with the militia in the city proper. The proximity of Liam, a white fox with healing powers, certainly doesn’t make things any easier. The attractive fox throws his own powers into an uncontrollable overdrive, not to mention his libido.
When several of the fox people are captured by the militia, Jake’s presence is like salt on old wounds. Prejudices and politics flare, and Jake’s secrets threaten to ruin his shaky alliance. If they are to save the foxes taken by the militia for experimentation, it will take all the cunning and power the clan can muster. Unfortunately, that also means they’ll have to put their trust the one place they’d never imagined: in the hands of a human.

Review: Jake has just got back to the city when he rescues a ‘fox’ child from the clutches of three men, as he makes a run for it he is shot and is rescued by Liam the temporary leader of the foxes.
This is a really good short story that gives us a lot of action and a good plot. Jake has a secret in his past that he knows he has to tell Liam is anything is going to happen between them. Liam has a lot on his plate trying to keep his pack safe while planning to rescue the Chief as well. They both have an enemy within the pack.
I liked the way this was written. You get a good idea of what the world is like and how the different species interact and how they live. Liam and Jake suited each other quite well and the sex was hot between them. Jake really regrets his past and has tried to make up for it, but it still haunts him. The action is really good and very well written. Although…I would have liked to know more about Jake’s power, was he born with it? Does any other human have power?
I’d recommend this to those who like paranormal, urban fantasy, hot sex and a good story.
