Overview


Book three of Puma Nights

Veterinarian Heidi Falke can tell that something isn't as it seems when she rescues an injured jaguar. Black jaguars aren't native to the area, and as a Falke, Heidi knows that some men can walk in the shape of a beast…literally. She won't let this seductive shapeshifter leave without getting some answers.

Javier Montero is on a mission: find the shapeshifter who killed his family and get the justice he deserves. This unexpected detour won't put him off for long, and what he has with Heidi can't be anything more than sex—even if it does feel different from anything he's ever known.

With Javier, Heidi discovers passion she never thought possible. She wants their connection to lead to a future together. Javier made a vow never to mate again after his loss…but if he wants to keep Heidi in his life, he'll have to decide how far he'll go for vengeance.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Falke family is back (after Falke’s Peak and Falke’s Captive), and this time it’s long-suffering, only daughter Heidi’s turn in the spotlight. Javier Montero is too busy tracking a snow leopard to realize his jaguar form is in the crosshairs of a local hunter. Heidi, the local vet, is called in to attempt to heal the fallen big cat. A female carrier of the family’s shape-shifting abilities, Heidi quickly realizes there’s more to the black jaguar than meets the eye and is intrigued by the newcomer. Javier, though, has only one goal in mind: revenge.

Verdict: The latest in the “Puma Nights” series from the writing duo of Keaton and Layle is enjoyable and a fun way to spend an afternoon. For those unfamiliar with the series, the paranormal take and the dynamics of the pack may be a bit confusing—or in the case of the dynamics, cold—but if readers stick with it, the rest settles quickly. Those who have enjoyed the two previous installments will be delighted to see familiar characters continuing to evolve. A great read for those looking for a steamy, shape-shifting romance.—Kellie Tilton, Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks Lib.

Read an Excerpt


"Son of the bitch."

Lev Durchenko glanced into the rearview mirror to see the black Jag less than fifty yards behind his own much slower rental sedan. No mistake; the driver meant him harm.

How had he gotten so close without Lev knowing?

Damn him for believing he'd lost Montero weeks ago. He should've known better. The bastard was more like a bloodhound than a cat.

"Fucking bastard." Lev pressed the accelerator, hoping to get into the nearest town. Montero would never attack him in public. From there Lev could blend into the crowd...make an escape...somehow. Live to fight another day, and on his own terms.

He should have killed the shifter years ago, should never have left that house without finishing them all.

Taking curves too fast, he worked the car into the hills somewhere in the godforsaken wilderness of Washington State. And then it happened. The engine sputtered as he accelerated up a straight slope. "Nyet. Nyet! Not now." His heartbeat surged, and a cold sweat popped out on his brow. He would have to make a run for it. Playing cat and mouse was much easier in cities. More places to hide.

He aimed the car toward a ditch, opened the door and jumped before it came to a complete stop. Running into the cover of the forest, he tore at his clothes, desperately removing them in order to change into his feline form before Montero could catch him. Only as a snow leopard did he have a chance of losing the jaguar.

His shirt removed, his slacks unbuttoned, he shoved at the material and transformed just as he heard a crashing in the woods behind him.

Lev ran. Leaping over fallen logs and branches, ducking under others, practically slithering through spaces too small for the oversized black cat on his tail, he searched for a place to hide. Hiding, out-waiting Montero was his only hope. The jaguar was too big to fight fairly in a head-to-head confrontation.

Damn it. Because of too many flights, too many airport security gates, he had no weapon. He'd been in a hurry to reach Seattle and hadn't taken the time to search one out. Impatience and foolishness might have just signed his death warrant.

A gunshot echoed through the forest. Close. Too close. Startled, he ran harder. Was Montero shooting at him? Unlikely, but not impossible. Maybe Montero had grown weary of their game after all this time and decided to end it the easiest way he could, even if that meant firing at an unarmed cat. Not Montero's style, but Lev decided to not put anything past the jaguar that he wouldn't do himself, and if the tables were turned...

Or perhaps there were other hunters in the woods... Not a very comforting thought. But were they shooting at him? At Montero? Or something altogether different?

No other shots rang out, but Lev wasn't about to pause and investigate the matter. Neither option boded well for him in his current form.

His lungs burned as he pushed himself to an even faster pace.

The land gave way in front of him, and he tumbled down a craggy slope, splashing into deep, icy water at the base. The river the highway had been following for some time, he realized. He popped his head above the surface and searched the top of the slope for a sign of Montero.

No sign of yellow eyes or a black face peering out of the dense pines. No dark figure searching for a safer way down to the river than the one Lev took.

Had he lost Montero?

    Laughing and Crying the whole way!

    AMAZING STORY!! If you LOVED the first 2 books, this is a must read or can be read on its own. I cried and laughed and really fell in love with Heidi and Javier.

    Heidi, who being in a family of shifters, and being the ONLY one not able to shift has her feeling left out. But the worst part is because shifters can only reproduce when it's 2 males and 1 female, and shifters are rare so finding them is hard enough, Heidi feels she'll be alone forever. No mate, no children.

    Javier has spent the last few years trying to kill an enemy. Someone who took what he held dearest. Now alone his only goal is to take this enemy out. But when tracking the bandit goes south and takes an almost deadly turn he ends up in an unexpected place....a cage next to an annoying bird. But can the female who saved him give him back what he once that was lost?

    Through lots of funny moments and moments that will have you on the edge of your seat, this book is a must read if you love shifter books. About 376 pages of greatness :]
