A snow leopard shifter in the prime of his life, the last thing on August’s mind is tying himself to one female. He welcomes a different one to his bed each night, or at least he had until five months ago when he became alpha. The duties and pressures of running his pride have his libido dead on arrival—until a trip to London to discuss business with the former alpha lands him in the path of a beautiful, bewitching tigress who awakens a passion in him that flares white hot and a need of her that consumes his every moment.

Promised at birth to a male she has never met, Maya has left her pride behind to go to the tiger alpha who is to be her mate, but she can’t leave without saying goodbye to her older brother, Talon. A stop in London at Underworld to see him one last time turns out far different, and far more dangerous, than how she had imagined it when she sets eyes on an alluring crimson-haired stranger who stirs new, unbidden feelings in her, desires that rouse her fiercest and most frightening instincts and demand she stake a claim on him—her fated mate.

Will Maya be strong enough to place her pride and her family’s safety before the desires of her own heart? And will August unravel his feelings for the black-haired beauty before it’s too late and he loses her forever?


 When I discovered this Story was about a snow leopard and a tigress shifter, I was curious to know how Ms. Heaton would spin this one. I had no doubt she could pull it off as she has proven repeatedly that she is a master at what she does.

I first met August in Craved by an Alpha, book 5 in the series.  It was at that point I discovered the man he was, loyal and protective. He took up the position of alpha, something  he never aspired to, so that his cousin could be with his mate. He never expected the pressures of being an alpha to be so overwhelming, but he was determined to prove his capabilities to his pride.

The perks he thought he would have in abundance now that he was an alpha, he no longer had a desire for, but that was until he met Maya, a beautiful tigress shifter, when he went to seek advice from his cousin at Underworld. 

I got a brief introduction to Maya in the previous installment. When I discovered she would be the heroine in this story, I was not sure what to expect, because honestly she did not impress me then. However, getting to know her in this story, proved a treat.

She is loyal, kick ass and is not afraid to stand up for her beliefs. She is willing to sacrifice her happiness for the safety of her pride. Her strength and convictions were admirable. I felt her struggle between following her heart and tradition. Fear of the harm that would come to her pride if she reneged was the catalyst for her decision.  However, she will discover what she thought was best for the pride would prove the worst thing for both her and them.

I enjoyed her initial encounter with August. That encounter, which was a battle of wills and dominance, would change both their lives.  She was his match in every way, but her duty to her clan proved to be a stumbling block.

I was quite the eager beaver with this story. I could not wait to find out how their situations would work out. I will not tell you how it was solved, but what I will tell you is this, it worked out for all parties involved. I was happy with how it all played out.

The world Ms. Heaton created in this series is fascinating. Her characters are well developed and her writing style transported me to a world where I spent time meeting and interacting with all types of supernatural beings. I developed a bond with the characters and as a result, I found myself rooting for them.

I always look forward to her action scenes and she did not disappoint.  The scenes were well written, easy to visualise, and it added to the entertainment value of the story. I knew Maya could fight, but it was at this point she proved herself to a warrior, worthy of being an alpha's mate.

Conclusion/Recommendation
Another great addition to the series. I am looking forward to reading next book in the series If you love the paranormal genre then you will enjoy this book. I highly recommend this series. Each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone
