Description: A run through the woods turned anything but typical when Levi found the one thing he never expected to find-his mate.
After a week spent in family reunion hell, Levi Travis is more than ready for a little break. But who knew shifting into a snow leopard and loping around in the woods could turn into such a steamy event?
When Levi encounters a cougar shifter in the woods, the attraction is so hot it threatens to shoot off sparks. Levi has fantasised about having a stronger man than him want him, and he’s sure the cougar is just such a man. Which is why Levi lets himself get caught, and the intensity of their mating is only equaled by Levi’s confusion when the man shifts back into a cougar then turns tail and runs.
Lyndon Hines has been running for months. Hunted, taunted, he didn’t know what else to do-until he met a man who made him realise that some things were worth fighting for. Two shifters, each a different breed, neither knowing much about their heritage, Levi and Lyndon come together and find the strength to take on the mad man who is out to end Lyndon’s life.
Review: The story starts just after a large family reunion took place on the Travis family ranch. Levi feels lonely after hearing the tales from family about finding their loved ones. Levi is ready for a relationship but it’s hard to meet men in small mountain town, Colorado. Little does he know that his luck in love is about to change.
Enter Lyndon. He is traveling, trying to get away from someone or something that is stalking him. But a feeling comes over him as he passes by the Travis ranch, one that tells him to stop. Besides who could he resist running through the beautiful mountain woods?
Lyndon goes for a run in his cougar form to run across a beautiful snow leopard. The second Levi and Lyndon’s eyes meet they had an instant connection. Unfortunately after their first steamy encounter, Lyndon finds himself running in the other direction.
Told from the point of view of both Levi and Lyndon the adventurous author Bailey Bradford takes on a courageous tale of naughty pleasure and discovering love. Her writing is light-hearted especially when we meet Levi’s loving family. This is a great story with entertaining characters and a fight to realize that a true mate makes them stronger.
My maiden name is Hines so I felt like I had a special connection with Lyndon in this love story between two shifter cats. I also grew up and still live in Colorful Colorado so their is a special place in my heart for books that take on our beautiful mountains. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a gallant story of two male shifters who have a little BDSM fun.
