Susie Benjamin had been denied nine jobs in three days. She had served five years for a crime she didn't commit, and it didn't seem to matter to these jerks that she'd been exonerated and wasn't an ex-con at all, just a victim of circumstance. If she didn't find a job soon what little money she had left would be gone.

Susie was a panther shifter and no one had ever told her the rules of her kind. Mason Douglas was quick to bring her to task for her not reporting that she was in town to him, the local Alpha. She'd work her sentence off on the ranch, but then she'd be gone. She wanted to be as far away as she could get before her father could find her again.

Gerard Douglas knew his brother had a new panther on the ranch, but wasn't in any hurry to meet her. Heck, he barely had time to sleep as it was he was so busy. But when he caught sight of her at the river it was all he could do to keep his distance. She wanted him too, he could tell, but he'd never seen anyone so skittish.

Susie knew from his scent they were mates. But he'd be better off without her because if her father found out he'd kill them both....

Gerard Douglas is as hard working as his brothers, he knows what he wants and doesn't want help to get it. Susie Benjamin lost 5 years of her life for something she did not do just because her father wanted to use her gift. Saying she trust no one is an understatement, saving the mate of the local alpha was not in her plans but it was the right thing to do, trusting that alpha is a whole different ball game. This is a great storyline filled with awesome characters. This series is a good example of there is no shame in working hard for what you want. I liked how Gerard acted with Susie, he understood her issues and was there for her. Susie's gift was a unique addition to this family and can only make them stronger. I enjoyed seeing the others again and finding out about the growth they had experienced. Mason has done a good job as the leader and head of the family. Gerard and Susie's mating is not without problems and Susie's father is a big one. As with most of Ms. Barton's books you will be drawn in right from the beginning and will be amazed at how fast you keep turning the pages. I look forward to reading the next book and visiting the fun family again.

After living under her father's thumb and belt she only knows the rules of being a cougar that he thought was important.

He has no idea what he is supposed to do with a mate, but a chance meeting the female who's staying at Mason's house proves to be life changing. Now these two just have to find a way to survive between money issues and people who have grudges against them.

Susie has had a terrible life growing up - her mom dies in prison and her dad abuses her. She is a cougar and also has a special ability. She goes on the run to get away from her dad but he always seems to find her. Gerard is tired of his life and ranching etc. and doesn't have a plan for a mate in his life until he figures out what he wants to do with his life. But destiny doesn't wait for him to do that. Susie knows instantly who he is to her and fights it. Once Gerard knows well it is all history from there. Another exceptionally well written story from Kathi S Barton that you won't want to put down until you finished it. Would definitely recommend to everyone as a must read.
