Book Blurb

In Haven, Montana, the shifters and their human allies are safe—for now. But that safety hinges on the town’s location remaining a secret, and it’s about to be compromised.

Cougar shifter Travis Kuger spent the past several years alternating between craving revenge and wishing he could forget his painful past. Ever since the shifter-hating Knights blinded him and killed his family, Haven—and Sheriff Jack Ulger—have been Travis’s refuge.

Travis and Jack know their friendship could be much more, but Jack is part of Haven’s ruling wolf shifter pack. If he takes a non-wolf mate, he could be banished forever. But when a knight infiltrates Haven, love becomes the least of their problems.

Book Review

One of the things that has really struck me about 'The Shifters' series by M.D. Grimm is the wide variety of plots and storylines in each successive book. There is nothing cookie cutter, although the Agency and its antithesis the Knights are a continuing theme and the author expands on each. In this volume, I was struck by the idea of a blind cougar shifter, particularly since he was tortured by the Knights, and revenge is foremost on his mind.

It's been six years since Travis made it to Haven, a refuge for shifters and humans that's practically impossible to locate in northern Montana. He's made a quiet life for himself, writing murder mysteries under a pseudonym and enjoying his new home. His thoughts of revenge have faded as he has found his home in Haven. He's friends with Jack, the sheriff, but is afraid to take it any further as Travis hasn't told anyone about his background or how he was blinded.

Jack is determined to make Travis his mate. There's just one problem. One really big problem. Jack's wolf shifter pack is the largest in the area, and their ancestor started Haven, so in a de-facto manner, they are the dominant shifters in town. And they don't ever mate with a nonwolf. Ever. Can Jack turn his back on his family, his pack for Travis? Before they can deal with this concern, Travis sniffs out a member of the Knights in town, and he knows he has to tell Jack, warn the town, and protect his home.

Oh, the information regarding the Knights and their leader is getting more fascinating. Knowing Travis's connection to the leader, Arcas, came as a scintillating tease in the unfolding of this series. I adored Travis and Jack's mating, and would love to live in Haven. A sexy drama that kept me highly entertained and eager for more.
