Lock is used to other shape shifters giving him a wide birth; after all even the wolves and lions know that taking on a 10 foot grizzly bear would be suicidal. Yet there is a lion/tiger hybrid that stands her ground around him, and her honey smelling hair and kissable lips have him thinking of salmon catching and picking up and carrying around this pretty kitty.
Gwen knows her family love her, but with her tiger blood she'll never be considered a full member of the Pride. When she is given the opportunity to move to New York with her best friend Blayne, she is quickly juggling a new job and a slow manoeuvring relationship with a grizzly. Lock's mighty curious by nature and Gwen intrigues him, but he knows she's a flight risk and he's starting to want something permanent.
Expect the sass and violence this author normally instils in her leading ladies. After all, you can't help but appreciate an author who can make you smile even when Gwenie goes all "house cat" and shreds the face off an adversary. Gwen is no push-over and more than tough enough to take on a curious bear with a fixation for honey and a tendency to forget he's dragging around a dazed shifter from time to time. I can't decide who wins my vote in this book; Gwen and her insanity or Lock and his toe playing fetish. Just beware anyone that gets between him and the kitty he wants. 4½ stars
