A husband and family is a full-time commitment that Dakoda Jenkins has never felt the need for. After being brought into this world by a drugged out pathetic excuse for a mother, and no father to speak of, Dakoda knows nothing of commitment and roots.
Years ago, Jesse Clawfoot was like any other young Native American man wanting to make it on his own in the modern world. Having since been brought into the fold of the Tlvdatsi clan, he has accepted his unique heritage and will fight to the death to preserve it.
If not for her stepfather, Dakoda would never have gained control of her life and her budding addictions, let alone become a Ranger. Looking down the barrel of a shotgun, the only thing standing between her and the deadliest of poachers is a shape-shifting cougar. Dakoda wishes she had picked a different career. As a cougar, Jesse tracked the scent of a familiar female, only to find himself caught in a viscous trap. The only way Jesse and Dakoda can possibly survive is to band together, and while the sexual attraction is off the charts, Dakoda is swamped with feelings so alien she can barely trust her sanity.
Fear of the unknown is crippling in its intensity for Dakoda Jenkins. The rawness of her character is captured so vividly by the fact that she has no family, no heritage, and no faith in anything beyond her own existence. Jesse is far from Dakoda's conquering hero, but his innate charm and forthright manner make his character seem so much more alive and real to the reader. The power of the cat and the woman whose very presence drives him wild is the perfect recipe for an animalistic seduction of the senses.
