Adelaide Deveraux lives a quiet life in the country, never quite fitting in with other people and preferring her spare time spent caring for the various stray cats in the area. But late one night, a feline of a much larger persuasion shows up at her door, shifting into a very injured—and very naked—human man in need of help.
Erik Wells has been on the run his whole life: from the people who killed his parents when he was a boy, from a group determined to exterminate his own kind, and now from the underground gladiator ring who abduct shifters and have them fight to the death for entertainment. And he needs to keep running, but something about Addie draws him to her home and her care.
The tiger in him senses it: there’s more to Addie than apparent at first glance—more to her knack for working with roots and herbs; more to her strange dreams; more to the secrets buried in her family history. But if she is who he thinks she is, the danger’s just beginning, as the powerful man responsible for keeping Erik captive for so long will stop at nothing to obtain her for his own.

This is a pretty solid book. It has a slow, lingering pace that makes it feel longer than its pages and has incredible development in between. Some of that development could've gone through building a stronger connection between the heroine and hero. I wanted more of them. More moments between them. That end picks it up but just a bit more in the middle to fill out their connection more. I would definitely read the next though, because from what I did get from them, I enjoyed.
I love this author, cant wait for part two.
