Kai, leader of the cougar clan already has his mate – beautiful Aric, yet in order to provide kits for his clan he needs to mate with a female. While he has not made a choice of which female will be given the honor of bearing his cubs; that has not stopped him from sampling the fruits of the pack.
Aric does not indulge in Kai’s lust for the female members of the pack, as he is yet to meet the female that he is attracted to enough to have her in his bed.
When Kai is drawn to the tantalizing scent of an unknown female – Sable – he follows his instincts and takes her to his bed. Unaware that she has a mission to complete, he enjoys his time with her. When the sacred amulet of the clan goes missing along with Kai’s bed-mate, both Aric and Kai quickly come to the conclusion that more is afoot than meets the eye.
With deception and treachery dodging their feet at every turn, they are on a race against time to not only find the talisman, but also to find Sable.
Jamie Hill and Jude Mason’s FERAL HEAT is an intense read. With the search for a female to have his cubs Kai not only becomes more thoughtful, he also becomes more lustful, and with their highly developed sense of smell, the whole cougar clan wonders when he will make a choice.
Aric is the perfect partner, faithful to a fault, loyal to only Kai and the clan, but also determine and selfless enough to know his limitations and accept what cannot be changed.
Sable is literally caught between loyalty and a demented killer, when she meets Kai she quickly picks up on a few things.The need in Kai, the fact that the passion they share comes only once, and also the fact that Kai is a fair and honest leader to his own clan.
FERAL HEAT is a brilliant collaboration between Hill and Mason and a wonderful paranormal novel. I for one am looking forward to more from these two.
