Ten years have passed since the events recounted in Hunted. During those ten years Katie Smith has been virtually living as a human because she can't shift into her cougar form. A virus that the evil Kurjan vampires developed and with which she was infected stole that ability from her. It did give her one advantage, though. She can sense and track deadly werewolves, male shifters who have been infected with the virus and have become killing machines. The only "cure" is to put them down. She has spent the intervening years working with a team doing just that. And living away from Jordan Pride.

The man she's always loved.

After all, what good is she to him? She's a shifter who can't shift. And, she believes that he still sees her as a child.   

Jordan is the alpha of his cougar pride, and watched Katie grow up. He's wanted Katie since the day she became an adult. But any dream he might have entertained of being with her died the day he got infected with the virus. Unless a cure is miraculously developed, he'll turn into a werewolf at the next full moon and have to be killed.

Knowing that upheaval within the pride will follow his death, Jordan wants to escort Katie to safety before he turns into a werewolf. But enemies find them before the full moon in the form of a werewolf with a grudge, the virus, and unrest within the pride. The bittersweet relationship between the ill-fated pair complicates matters.

Even if they survive until the full moon, can Jordan beat the odds that are stacked against him?

She slowly took a step toward him. "You're better than any dream I've ever had." 
His smile was slow. Sexy. Devastating. "You are every dream I've ever had."
Whoo-hoo! Katie and Jordan's story! I'd been waiting for their book since they were first introduced, and I'm so glad they finally … well, you'll see. Let's just say that Jordan was worth the wait.
Jordan didn't kiss. He consumed.
 Oh. Yeah.

Jordan is a sexy, protective, honorable, powerful, alpha hero who does everything in his power to keep Katie safe. But Katie doesn't want to be "kept." She wants to fight for Jordan, and fight she does. She jumps in with both feet, whether it's in fighting werewolves or the virus. She's not about to lose Jordan now that she's finally got his attention.

The plot has many entwined story lines going on at once. Aside from Katie and Jordan's plot lines, there are story lines that continue to be carried along from book to book. Also, we get to catch up with old friends from previous books. The story of Janie, Zane, and Kalin continues. We get to see Zane as an adult, and he's hot! I'd say I can't wait for Janie and Zane's story, but that will probably be the end of the series so I should be careful what I wish for.

Jase and Kane's stories are set up. Next up is Kane's story, Provoked, coming out November 1, 2012.

Happy Reading!
