When jaguar shifter Lauren Hayes breaks into an alpha’s home to steal back what rightfully belongs to her pride, she doesn’t expect to be tackled by Max McCray, second-in-command of the Kincaid wolf pack. As punishment for her crime the sexy wolf shifter demands that she stay with him for one week. Knowing she’ll start a war between her pride and his pack if she doesn’t, she has no other choice but to agree, even if the thought of being near him 24/7 makes her scared that she won’t be able to hide her growing attraction to him.
Now he has a week to make her his…
Max has waited months to make a move on the sexy jaguar shifter and now that she’s broken shifter rules, he’s not letting her go. He doesn’t care that he’s a wolf and she’s a jaguar, claiming her forever is the only thing that matters. Unfortunately, not everyone likes the idea of him being with a feline shifter. Max is forced to choose sides between Lauren and members of the pack he’s sworn allegiance to in order to protect the woman he knows is his destined mate.
Lauren may have made a huge mistake getting caught trying to steal from the Kincaid wolf pack but as it's the too tempting Max who takes her hostage maybe it's not exactly the end of the world but she has no intention of sharing that particular secret with him! What Lauren doesn't know is that from the very first time he met her, Max and his inner wolf have been going crazy with need and right now what Max needs is time to convince Lauren that a wolf and a jaguar can have all sorts of possibilities together. There's the slight problem of prejudice though as interspecies relations are not that common and wouldn't you know it, Lauren is her Alpha's daughter and she is his baby girl at that! Then of course there's that sticky problem of attempted theft to sort out but that might just turn out to be the least of Lauren's problems!
Now I will be frank and say this is not the longest story, so yes it's a tad difficult to develop the characters much but Ms Stuart still does a credible job of bringing her lead characters to life. I liked both Max with his growly possessive nature and the unflappable and cool Lauren. It's a fast paced story, rife with sexual tension and it was fun being back with the Kincaid pack. An easy undemanding read for when you feel like being transported to a world filled with romance that will leave you purring!
