His mating was everything Tomas Montoya could have ever hoped for, but his marriage has been less than stellar. He knows his position as heir to the South American Pride is creating most of the problems, and it is killing him that he cannot find a way to stop it.
She has never been so miserable in her life, but Ciri Montoya knows she cannot put the blame solely on Tomas. She misses her home, her family and her pride, but more than that she misses her husband, and she has little hope that she will ever fit into his political life.
Every day they drift further apart, and every day Tomas feels like more of a failure, not only in his marriage, but his job as well. He has to find a way to bridge the gap, because the alternative is too horrible to even contemplate. Ciri feels as if her world is spiraling out of control, but is the love she has for Tomas strong enough to withstand the turmoil?
At the core of any marriage is trust and compromise, but it is plain to see Tomas and Ciri are faltering at both. Their characters may be uncommon, but their problems are not, and it makes them feel all the more real for it. The angst and the passion go hand in hand for Tomas and Ciri, and they have no problem keeping you hanging on every word.
He has traveled the world, and seen and done things most people will never even dream of, but something has Rafe Santiago feeling unsettled. He loves his life, and he loves his job as a travel journalist, and yet lately he has noticed there may be something missing.
She made up her mind a long time ago that she would never put herself in a position like her brother, Enrique, but that was before Teresa Garcia had met her mate. Now she has to find a way to keep that promise to herself, because neither she nor her country can afford for her to lose it.
The moment they catch each other’s eye at the airport, it is obvious to both Rafe and Teresa what they have found. Rafe is ready to dive in head first, and make Teresa his forever, but the resistance he encounters has him coming to a grinding halt. Touching, tasting and feeling each other only drives home just how desperately Teresa must keep her promise to herself, and it is killing her. Rafe does not understand Teresa’s unwillingness to complete their bond, but he will respect her wishes, even if it leaves him feeling hollow for the rest of his days.
The nature of the beast is hard to ignore, and for Teresa and Rafe it seems impossible. Their human rationalizations go head-to-head with their animal instincts, and it makes for one explosive combination.
Ms. Jordan is one of the most exciting authors you will ever encounter within the paranormal and shape-shifter genres. Her characters virtually leap off the pages and into your heart. They are not only the sexiest shifters you will find, but the stories they tell are intelligent and well designed. I have read many works by Ms. Jordan, and each one is as tantalizing as the next.
