This riveting read is a mesmerizing and action-packed, quick shifter romance.

Kelly is abducted by evil scientists when she's mistaken for a werecat and violently introduced to the world of shifters. Jacob is her study body and object of her crush, and he's caught and locked in the cage with her when he attempts to rescue her. Who knows what the consequences will be when the moon rises and they are consumed by unquenchable lust...

This fast-paced plot keeps readers on the edge of their seats with lots of action, drama and romance. The author brings the story with well-written events and scenes that capture the imagination and the well-orchestrated action and strong compelling characters draw the reader deeper into the story.

The attraction between Jacob and Kelly radiates from every page from the very beginning and the sex scene is hot and steamy, even if it is in an unusual and stressful situation. The reader can't help but get caught up in their story as the drama and the horror of the situation grab her attention and doesn't let go.

The author has created a wonderful shifter world full of action and suspense that holds the reader in its grip. I really enjoyed the short read even if I do think it was too short and there is a major cliffhanger. Of course that means I will be impatiently waiting for next one.

This is an entertaining story with a cliffhanger ending that will leave you breathless!

A case of mistaken identity and Kelly suddenly finds herself kidnapped and caged by military scientists who are hoping to create super soldiers by studying and genetically altering shifters. She doesn't have any family to speak of, and despairs that anyone will even notice she is missing.

Her only hope lies with Jacob, her college study partner. She had hoped that their relationship romance bound, but since her last encounter with him ended in an argument, there is a chance that he won't notice her absence either.

Kelly has no idea that Jacob is a wolf shifter who has been attracted to her from the very beginning. He is willing to do what ever it takes to save the woman he believes is his mate. Unfortunately, his plan of action backfires, and lands the star crossed lovers caged and at the mercy of zealous scientists bent on exploitation.

This fast paced novelette is fraught with danger. As the two uncover government secrets they also discover unexpected truths about each other. Irresistibly drawn together, the sexual chemistry between Kelly and Jacob sparks like a live wire.

Fair warning; it does contain editing and grammar errors that are noticeable, but do not significantly detract from the overall story line.
