Rolly has waited ten years to claim his mate. Now the wait is over, and he's coming home.

Rolly has waited patiently for his mate. When he first met Erdwin, the boy was still a child. Rolly felt nothing but compassion for him back then, but Erdwin came of age five years ago, and Rolly's stayed out of his life in order to give Erdwin time to experience life.

Erdwin never fit right in his skin. He didn't like what he saw in the mirror. It didn't match how he felt inside. As a shifter, he was stuck with the body he had. Surgery wasn't an option for him. But Erdwin found a way to accept himself—by embracing the part of herself that felt like her true nature. She struggled with it, but with her family's support, she became Edie, the young lady she was meant to be. She stopped worrying about her parts, and concentrated on her heart.

When Rolly, a powerful shaman, moves back home to the pack, Edie is transfixed. He makes her nervous—and arouses her. But what would a man like him think of a woman liker her?

Edie's about to find out, and she will have to be stronger than ever to help fight off a threat to her pack, to her mate, and to her family.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of light BDSM and fisting.

Publisher's Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

Exiled from home, Cesare Bianco travels to Rome in search of a new beginning and chance has him meeting his mate in this captivating paranormal romance.

Filming in Rome is a difficult challenge for Hayden Skarz but being around Cesare makes his job that much sweeter. These strong compelling characters ensnare readers with their story right from the beginning especially because they are on two different continents, and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot is full of suspense and romance. The attraction between Cesare and Hayden heats up the pages and the sex scenes are hot and steamy but there is a small problem…Hayden is human and Cesare is a lion shifter.

Expectation builds as Hayden begins to feel that something is wrong on the set and the tension builds as Cesare and Hayden realize that Hayden has a stalker with a murderous obsession. The scenes and details are well written and bring the story to life, making it easy for the reader to picture each and every scene as it happens. The intriguing events draw the reader in and refuses to let go.

While I enjoy series where the characters are connected, I have to say that this series makes for a refreshing change as I get to meet all these sexy lion shifters from different prides which also means that I get to travel a bit too.
