THEIR LOVE IS JUST BEGINNING.
Detective Charlotte Caissie is growing used to the secrets that come with loving the mysterious leader of a shape-shifter clan. But that doesn’t mean she has to like it. She’s avoided complications of the heart all her life, but when it comes to irresistible Max Savoie, she’ll force the truth out of him if she has to.
HIS TIME IS ALMOST UP.
Hunted by the deadly trackers his nefarious father warned him about, Max is transforming into a preternatural force he can’t explain and Cee Cee will never understand. He’s tempting the dangerous limits of their love, but it’s her curiosity that could get them both killed. WILL THEY EVER REALLY BE TOGETHER?
When Max discovers the enemy’s true target is someone far more vulnerable than he, he must do the unthinkable to save his own flesh and blood. But he can’t fight this battle alone, and Cee Cee faces the ultimate test of loyalty: the man she’d sacrifice everything for . . . or the laws she swore her life to protect.
Something is going on with Max in this novel. He's at war with his shifter side, feeling wild primal urges and as a result, he's afraid for Charlotte. He knows he could hurt her, and Max would never survive if Cee Cee came to any harm. If she was hurt because of him, well, I don't know what Max would do, nor do I even want to imagine it. I love how passionately in love Max is with Cee Cee, how unconditional and consuming that love is. It makes me melt.
|Start with Book One!|
Cee Cee has no idea what is going on with Max. She fights him because she knows he's not himself, but I have to admire her strength in not doubting him, and in staying with him even through the worst. In demanding that she be his one and only knowing that the consequences could be deadly for her. Girl's got courage in a big way.
The end of the novel made me want to cry, and added on an unexpected layer. Because there's no denying that Charlotte is now...different. We don't get a lot of clues about this, but something is different in Cee Cee, which leaves us with questions. And what has happened to Cee Cee isn't the only question we are left with. I'm dying to find out more about Oscar, his connection to Max, and the Trackers.
I adore finding out out more about this world. The story is being developed with layers that are intiguing and leave you wanting more. Each book is richly depicted and palatable with emotion. Nancy Gideon has crafted novels that are pure reading pleasure, and I cannot get enough of this wonderful series.
