Author: Chérie De Sues
About The Book: Neol Pallaton walks alone through the bowels of society as a bounty hunter, until he shifts into a cougar to save Assistant D.A. Sara Hughes from certain death. A relentless killer keeps them moving by day through the Oregon forest—and by night under the full moon, passion rules their hearts.
The rugged forest is no place for a beautiful and feisty city woman, but Neol’s determined to help Sara piece together why she's being hunted. Sara thought bounty hunters were brutal loners who stretched the law she’s sworn to uphold. But Neol proves that no one can hunt, track and protect her like a Navajo medicine man from the Red Moon Clan.
Neol is willing to anger the spirits to protect his one true mate. Sara will have to bend the law to keep Neol and her alive—and together forever.
The Review: Neol is the perfect knight in shining armor or would that be the perfect Navajo Medicine Man in shining cougar fur? He's everything any woman could imagine wanting in a mate. Other than gorgeous looks he also possesses a quiet strength and power that you can really feel through the pages of Ms. De Sues book. Sara is a force to be reckoned with as well. She isn't exactly your typical paper-pushing Assistant D.A. She's had the training, thanks to her dad, of how to survive out in the wild. This girl may not have any magical or shapeshifting abilities, but she sure can wield a rifle.These two are a perfect match... he catches the bad guys and she prosecutes them. There journey through the wilderness to outsmart their pursuers, creates an optimal, intimate setting for Neol and Sara to get to know each other and fantasize a possible future. Both have hesitations and believe that the bubble will burst once the danger has been curbed, but neither expect that the spirits have already decided their fate.Ms. De Sues added everything a reader could want in a worthwhile book... a ton of action, suspense, and danger, but mixed in tender moments and sensuous lovemaking to add emotional depth. There were a couple of moments where the story felt a little dull and certain details were unnecessarily added, but overall I was impressed with my first Chérie De Sues read.With so many awesome supporting characters left to discover, this just has to be the start of a new series and I can't wait to dive in if it is. I was completely taken by surprise with the ending and that particular twist only left me wanting more.
