A wolf and bobcat come together and change one community, forever.

Grayson Mason is worn out and run down from the long months on the road in search of the feline Prince. All he wants is to finish his mission and go back to his Pack. That is, until he meets the one woman who will turn his world upside down.

Beth Williams is happy in Coyote Bluff. The community of shifters support one another and she has her brother and nephew. Sure, sometimes she might get lonely, but she’s never connected with anyone enough to consider mating. That is, until a new wolf hits town. With the arrival of Gray, she has to rethink her entire life.

But there is more going on than just the attraction between the wolf and the bobcat. Gray’s search is bringing him closer to finding the Prince but at the same time leading him right into the middle of a feline conspiracy and a battle.

Gray finds himself fighting not only for the Prince’s survival, but also to protect his future mate.

Wolves don’t usually play well with cats, but Grayson and Beth are the exception. There is a instant connection that cannot be denied, which means only one thing, they were meant to be no matter their species. Beth knows she can trust the wolf in man’s clothing, especially since he has come to help them. He seems to get along with everyone even though wolves are known for trying to become the alpha. Beth is rewarded with one of the most kind and compassionate men around vying for her attention.

The family connection in this story was evident from beginning to end and was a real driving force that kept me interested. I like that Beth and her family seem to look out for one another even if they did not know it. It is a type of kinship that many of us seek within our own families. It was clear to me that though they may not be perfect, everything they did was for one another. I also enjoyed Gray’s longing for such a family. It helped me to know that he many finally found home.

The relationship development between Beth and Grayson while continues seemed to fall a bit short for me. I would like to have seen a bit more wooing and reluctance on the part of the characters. I think a bit more build up between the wolf and cat compatibility or lack of it would have made the relationship that much more explosive in the end for me.

The antagonistic conflict within the story was a nice added feature. It had its start in a previous story, but I was still able to follow along easily as should anyone who is new to the series, or a veteran in the Were Chronicles world. This author does like to feature relationships that cover both straight, gay and anything in between, so while the main characters are m/f, they do have some gay supporting characters in case anyone is squeamish about these types of topics. It was a nice add in for me since I enjoy all types of relationships.

This is a series I have recommended in the past and will continue to do so because the author is great at producing high quality stories, just like Pack Community.
