Book Blurb

When you grab a tiger by the tail, sometimes he bites back.

Veterinary trauma surgeon and animal empath Sasha Soskoff has found everything he ever wanted with his new partners Neal, Steve and Carlos. Life feels as safe and secure as it can be among a group of ex-Marine tiger shifters. Until a homeless man is found, gruesomely mauled and murdered, near Neal’s BDSM club.

When it’s determined a rogue tiger did the deed, the jaguars’ accusing eyes turn toward Sasha’s lovers. The precarious balance of peace tips dangerously toward war.

Neal knows damned well none of his tigers committed the crime. Someone must be in Chicago without his knowledge or permission, and they’d better find him fast before uncertainty and conflict rip the tight-knit band apart from the inside.

As Sasha struggles to heal the stress fractures forming among his tiger family, he begins to wonder if his dreams of a home, and love, were too good to be true. And it’s precisely that moment the killer strikes at the heart of the tiger clan—Sasha himself.



First edition published by Samhain Publishing, July 2013.


Book Review

If you read book one in this series or, by any chance, read my review of book one, then you already know that I thought it was hot, hot, hot. So, naturally, I was super excited about being able to get my hands on book two. I was thrilled to be back with the guys at The Factory, ready to see some more yummy BDSM scenes with Neal, Sasha, Steve, and Carlos, eagerly anticipating all that free flowing testosterone and I knew I was in for an action/adventure when these tigers got going. I was also positive that the writing style and characterizations would be over the top excellent.

Sasha is so ready to settle into life with his new shifter veterinary clinic, his men, and the club, especially after the debacle with the Russian mob in the last book. Of course Sasha isn't about to be allowed to have that and when homeless men begin to appear having obviously been mauled and killed by a tiger it's up to Neal, Sasha, and the rest of the guys to get answers. It doesn't help that these killings have the jaguars up in arms convinced it's one of Neal's tigers and wanting to send the tigers packing. Just to be magnanimous, though, even if the jaguars defeat the tigers and send them away from Chicago, they want Sasha to stay. Not likely!

So now there's a rogue tiger on the loose, territory issues with the jaguars, Neal is short handed on security for the club, one of the Marines has gone a little off the deep end psychologically, and Sasha has weird things occurring within his own physical self. Throw in a bear clan from NY that wants Sasha working for them, betrayal from one of his lovers, and the stress and issues are coming out of the woodwork. Sounds exciting, right?

I certainly thought so.
