Rating: 4 Cups
Veterinarian Jayda Kynslan has decided to give up men after finding out her boyfriend is married. Before starting her life of celibacy, Jayda heads to Montana for a vacation get-away to ease the pain of betrayal, and for one more night of shameless sex with a stranger.
Cole Takoda, Police chief and wolf shifter council leader, is ready for a night off from investigating the mysterious murders of shifters in his town. But when a stranger named Jayda shows up at the local tavern and propositions him, their quickie rendezvous uncovers a shifter secret and unfulfilled prophecy Cole cannot ignore.
Cole is torn when he must take Jayda to the station for questioning after a dead man is found in the woods close to the cabin she is renting. Frightened at the prospect of being a murder suspect, Jayda accepts assistance from an unlikely source as she is thrust into the alien world of animal shifters.
Ms. Pierce’s “Bonded Souls” is a creative shifter story with well-developed characters and an intriguing, mysterious story line that captivates your attention. This is a great paranormal story with the right mix of suspense, action, and sizzling sex.
