Woods Family #1
by: Mandy Harbin
Released: July 2011
After ending an engagement with her cheating ex, the last thing attorney Mikaela wants is to travel to Texas to work with one of their clients at his house. The only catch is the man refuses to let any unattached females on the property, so Mikaela keeps her broken engagement from her boss, figuring it's not that big of a deal. She doesn't want to go, but figures maybe a couple weeks off in the middle of nowhere might do her some good, even if she will be working the whole time.
But there's a reason the unattached female rule is present. The man, along with his sons, are all lion shifters, an extremely rare and volatile breed. Anytime they scent an unmated female, the urge to mate is so strong it overrides their human nature, often resulting in death to both parties.
When Josh sees Mikaela, he doesn't understand the instant attraction he feels. After all, she's taken, right? But as attraction turns into passion, secrets come to light that could endanger not only Mikaela, but Josh's entire family as well.
Wow, this short story was hot! The author did an excellent job laying out the characters and the world in a short amount of time, and was able to make it believable. The sex scenes were scorching hot, and the character interaction, along with the characters themselves, really drew me into the story.
Anyone who enjoys their shifter stories primitive, raw and hot should give this book a try.
