Review: Once again, Stephanie has made my week. She has an amazing gift to tell stories. She has the ability to bring you such wonderful characters and an intriguing world to just lose yourself in. When times get really hard, I find a story that catches my attention and just read the day away. This story was one of those stories. To get a true feel of every character you really need to start with book one in this series. It was told in such a humorous way that I just about died laughing. There is a bit of seriousness to it though.
Hale, a really cute beagle shifter was mated to a big, bad leopard assassin. Toby loved his little mate with everything in him. It doesn’t hurt that the sex is tender and hot. Now it was Christmas time and they were getting everything ready. Hale had gotten nominated by the alpha mate of their family to decorate for the holidays. Hale, however, wasn’t too sure he could do it. He was a bit intimidated by all the fierce hunters around him, but when he said he would do something, he would do it. He is not only cute, but extremely smart, caring and very loving. His mate is all alpha type, tough and can be mean when needed, but he lacked the self-confidence to be true to himself. He loved his mate though and was determined to help him with every bit of decoration there was. When Rand group of shifters attacked, things go up in smoke. This book has the perfect amount of excitement mixed with danger. Hale just needed to be reminded what the holiday’s are all about.
It is a great story, one that I have read more than once. I cannot wait to read the next book in this wonderful series.
