Sci-fi Shifter Romance
Rating: 3 Cups
As a shape shifting Tigon and the Captain of a ship, Barrick is a strong and brave individual. He is Alpha in every way, laying claim to what is his and fighting to keep it. To save his people and family line, Barrick enlists the help of a matchmaking witch to help him find his true Mate. He can only hope the heart she takes from him comes back in time to save his life.
Alycia James is a big cat specialist, doing field work with the beautiful and powerful felines. While visiting a San Francisco flea market she is drawn to a booth with a pushy old crone and a most fascinating heart-shaped pendant. She can’t help stroking it and cradling it close to her chest. Little does she know that precious jewel will lead destiny to her.
Independent Alycia is most unhappy when a tall, and decidedly non-human, Barrick extracts her from her world and marks her as his territory. But when she tries to find her way back to her own life she may just discover the home she’s always longed for.
Leila Brown captured my interest with this brand of shape shifter. Barrick is deliciously barbaric, and Alycia is a spirited heroine who is more well-matched to him that he would like. Their chemistry is apparent and their scenes together explosive. I was a tad disappointed with the rushed ending, but do look forward to more windows into this fascinating feline world by Ms. Brown. Any books in this series will go on my must-buy list!
