Everyone has a bit of a beast inside…

After five years traveling through third world countries to teach impoverished children, Samira Suarez has returned home to Black Meadows. What Sam didn’t expect was to be instantly overwhelmed by the desire to be with the one man she’s wanted since she was a teen, Riel Karven.

Riel has been patiently waiting for Sam’s return. For five long years he’s backed off and watched her come and go. This is it. His mate is back and he’s taking a stand.

Sam’s need for Ry grows to unimaginable proportions. It’s almost as if she were in heat. But she’s a human…isn’t she?

There’s more at stake than Sam and Ry’s future relationship when she inherits her grandmother’s estate. One of her many relatives wants her out of the way.

It’s going to take all of Ry’s determination and help from his friends to keep her alive. And it’s going to take delving into her past to find out why a human is going into mating heat.

What an amazing story! I absolutely loved it. Caged Heat had everything that I look for in a book. Passion, suspense, drama, and some very sexy shifters. You name it, this book’s got it. I was captivated by the steamy love scenes and the thrilling suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat.

After five years of spreading good will, teaching impoverished kids around the world to read, Samira is finally back home. Her beloved grandmother has passed away and left her fortune to Sam. Right away the drama kicks into high gear as the rest of the family are not happy. Threats are made and Sam’s life is in danger as somebody tries to take her out. Making matters worse are the strange symptoms that she keeps having that open up an entirely different mystery. This story was riveting as the suspense kept building and the twists and turns kept coming.

Then Sam hooks up with Riel, the wolf next door who has known all along that she is his mate. He made a promise to her grandmother that he’d wait to claim Sam as his mate. Now that she has returned all bets are off and he will do anything to protect her.

Wow! The chemistry was off the charts between these two. Although the steamy love scenes were plenty, they were written with an emotional intensity so that I never once felt the book was just about sex. Surprisingly for me that it was my favorite love scene, the first interaction they had was a voyeurism scene. Their little peep show was so hot and so well played out that it had me fanning myself. I knew right then that this was an author who knew how to set the stage for amazing love scenes. I was right. The book was loaded with lots of steamy love scenes that had me cranking up the AC.

There was a lot of stuff going on in this book to keep me entertained. The story was full of action . I liked that it contained surprises and I never knew where the story was going. It’s an intense story with some interesting plot twists that kept things moving at a fast and thrilling pace. The author did a great job of hiding the villains identity until the end. To this readers satisfaction the villains get their just comeuppance in the end.

I loved the characterization and the connection between Riel and Sam. The author brought them to life and got me interested in their lives. I felt sad for Sam cause, except for her grandmother, she kinda grew up alone. Her family was so mean to her. So I connected with her emotionally and that is a bonus for me when I’m reading a book. The mystery of her parents …. that was so sad that it made my heart ache. What can I say about Riel? Definitely a true alpha male and so sexy. Just the kinda guy I love to read about. I was cheering him on when he came to defended his woman and handed out some serious retribution. There was also some intriguing secondary characters that I’d love to read about. I’m looking forward to reading Troy and Nat’s book real soon.

I have so many good things to say about this book. I loved it! I recommend it to readers who enjoy a fast paced story that is loaded with suspense, steamy love scenes and HOT alpha heroes.
