Synopsis: Jaguar shifter Stella Moore has one thing on her mind – to take down the anti-shifter organization that destroyed her family. Her plans are going perfectly until a sexy-as-sin stranger throws off her game and decides the only way they can both avoid getting caught is to claim her as his girlfriend. Wait! What? Now she has to fly to a tropical island and play along because the alternative is…deadly.
Most people know Cole Turner as an uber-wealthy playboy – not as a tiger shifter who’s part of a special ops team to protect his kind. Now his undercover mission has been compromised by a redheaded bombshell, and every animal instinct he has is screaming mate. To survive among so many enemies, they’ll have to keep up their romantic act, find their intel… and absolutely not fall in love along the way.
The hero and heroine in this explosive romance has some serious chemistry going – chemistry that sparks are flying , fuses are being lit and even some fiery explosions. Stella and Cole are strong, passionate characters that demand readers’ attentions and their romance is very feisty to say the least. Both characters have an agenda and love just doesn’t fit into their plans at the moment, especially as they just may be at cross purposes. So the relationship is an emotional, turbulent and sometimes volatile ride that keeps readers smiling and even chuckling at Stella and Cole.
Cole is a tiger shifter with a mission. He and his teammates are trying to ensure that all shifters are safe from an organization willing to experiment and erase them. Being invited to an exclusive party full of members of this organization isn’t Cole’s idea of a good time, but he’s willing to be the sacrificial lamb in order to secure intel. What he doesn’t count on is having to save an innocent…or is she?
Stella has thought of one thing only for years. Getting revenge on the one person who had taken everything from her. Her sibling, her parents, her sense of security. She finds herself in a predicament when she runs in to a tiger shifter who is hotter than sin. While trying to eliminate the worst of the anti-shifter group, Stella and Cole butt heads.
There is a lot of back and forth drama, some secrets, lots of stupidly dangerous decisions, and possible betrayal. In the end, we don’t really get everything tied up nicely, but I assume we’ll revisit this in future books. These two definitely deserve each other, though, if for no other reason than to keep their lives interesting.
