Product Description

Product Description

A Cougar Falls and Feral Attraction story

Mountain man or mountain lion? In his case-one and the same.

When Rachel arrives in Cougar Falls for a reading of her aunt's will, she finds herself in a typical mountain town. Except that it's not quite...typical. It's full of the requisite, rough-hewn mountaineers, but these men seem more animal than man.

And one of the rude strangers brings out the animal in her during an embarrassingly orgasmic-and scorching-sexual encounter in an alley. The fantastic tales that the townsfolk tell about the Ac-Taw, a clan of people who can shift into animals, are nothing but folklore. Or are they?

Burke is stunned by his response to Rachel, and even more so when she innocently shows signs of possessing Ac-Taw blood. And this puts her in more danger than she knows, danger that only increases the urgency to mark her as his own.

Rachel comes to realize she's inherited much more than just property. She has also inherited a destiny to protect her newfound home.

For the Ac-Taw aren't just legend-they're real.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice enough 8 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Nice juicy story. Short sweet read.

72% of the file is the story. The rest are samples, I think 4 or 5 of them. ONE of them is for this very book! Naughty naughty. Overpriced, but the story was good.

I love Marie Harte tales, and this did not disappoint. I've just finished reviewing a menage tale by another author, where there's menage, but not on a permanent basis, which I didn't like, but this tale was different as the menage scenes were integral to the tale, and the tale itself ended with a HEA for the main leads.

Charlotte, a shifter who is not yet in touch with her inner beast, has just inherited the home, lands and totem of her late aunt. She's been divorced and screwed by her ex, and is slightly uptight about guys, especially when she and Burke, the male lead, get off to a bad start. Anyway, when she hears her aunt's Will, she realises that she will have to work with Burke to 'reveal' the totem, which protects their town of Cougar Falls, which is only visible to those of shifter blood.

She and Burke are left letters by her aunt, which they have to read and then burn, and they unite forces to save their heritage. Burke wants to mate her, and is already falling for her, but he has to mark her to take her into his Puma clan, or else she could be marked by some other clan and become a non-feline shifter, meaning that the totem will be lost to the town, and she will be lost to him.

So, he marks her, but to intensify the marking, his brothers also need to mark her, hence the menage scene. It was hot and naughty, but tasteful and integral to the tale, and all treated each other with respect. I liked how Burke did not really want her to be with his brothers, but did it for the good of all of them, as a one-time thing, and in the end, he and Rachel got their HEA.

This was romantic, hot, sexy and very well written, but with Marie Harte, that's a given, and is what makes the author a 5* read every time. This is a KEEPER!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rachel's Totem 21 May 2014
By Merissa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cougar Falls is in trouble - the Totem's Protector has died and the Totem has disappeared. The town's hope lies in the Protector's niece... who knows nothing about the paranormal world her aunt lived in.

This story gives you a quick insight into how Rachel becomes the new Protector and thus gains four Protectors herself. There is some m/f/m/m action in this so if that puts you off then just don't bother reading it. As for myself, I copied Dean and Grady and thoroughly enjoyed it as it "was for one night only"!

As this is a Novella, don't expect a book that gives the amount of description that Tolkein would! However, saying that, the amount of description given in this book is astounding - the town, the people, the rivalries, it's all there in your mind as you read through this little gem of a novella.

If you want something that is short and spicy - and you don't mind a foursome - then definitely give this one a go. A good introduction to a new series for me to look out for.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started to read this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story is a love story but with a twist!
Couldn't put it down! Would like to see what other books have been written by Marie Harte.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raw animal desire 3 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've given 4 stars cos although this was a good story it did seem to be rushed near the end.
This is an introduction into the magical town of Cougar Falls where Rachel a human is about to learn that shifters are real and she's one of them.
Rachel's inherited her aunts home and land in this small town but there is a catch she is the keeper of the totem that magically protects the town and its occupants from humans. The thing is its been lost and Rachel is the only one who can find it.
Now along comes Burke a shifter who literally sweeps Rachel off her feet. For some reason Rachel is attracted to him and can't help herself. All becomes clear that Burke is her mate and they need to bond sexually to find the totem. The mating is quite erotic but very brief (that's when I felt things were rushed).
Before you know it Rachel can shift, find the totem and save the town.
In Plain Sight: Cougar Falls Series, Book 2
I would also recommend Animal Attraction
