Review - Feral Heat - Jenna Byrnes, Jude Mason

 

Back Of The Book

Book one in the Untamed Hearts Series


The scent of a female is a powerful thing. Kai, leader of the cougar clan finds that out the hard way, much to his distress. Can he and his life mate, Aric, find the stolen talisman before it's too late?


The female's scent is highly arousing, even to a cougar closely mated to his male partner. But Kai is no ordinary cougar. He's a changeling, sometimes a highly sexed human, and sometimes an even friskier cat. He mounts the seductive Sable, unaware of her mission and exactly what he's preparing to lose.
The talisman amulet has kept the cougar clan at peace for generations. When it's stolen Kai and his mate, the handsome Aric, set out on a journey to recover it. Meeting treachery and deception at every turn, the duo are forced to battle not only for the peace of the cougar clans, but for their very survival, and the life of their newfound love, Sable.

Review

A man, his soul mate and the woman of his dreams, are caught in a battle to find an ancient amulet that holds the four clans together. In trying to find the amulet – they have to face one deadly enemy who is dead set on destroying what they have only just found.

Kai, leader of the cougar clan already has his mate – beautiful Aric, yet in order to provide kits for his clan he needs to mate with a female. While he has not made a choice of which female will be given the honour of bearing his cubs; that has not stopped him from sampling the fruits of the pack.

Aric does not indulge in Kai’s lust for the female members of the pack, as he is yet to meet the female that he is attracted to enough to have her in his bed.

When Kai is drawn to the tantalizing scent of an unknown female – Sable – he follows his instincts and takes her to his bed. Unaware that she has a mission to complete, he enjoys his time with her. When the sacred amulet of the clan goes missing along with Kai’s bed-mate, both Aric and Kai quickly come to the conclusion that more is afoot than meets the eye.

With deception and treachery dodging their feet at every turn, they are on a race against time to not only find the talisman, but also to find Sable.

Jenna Byrnes and Jude Mason’s FERAL HEAT is an intense read. With the search for a female to have his cubs Kai not only becomes more thoughtful, he also becomes more lustful, and with their highly developed sense of smell, the whole cougar clan wonders when he will make a choice.

Aric is the perfect partner, faithful to a fault, loyal to only Kai and the clan, but also determine and selfless enough to know his limitations and accept what cannot be changed.

Sable is literally caught between loyalty and a demented killer, when she meets Kai she quickly picks up on a few things. The need in Kai, the fact that the passion they share comes only once, and also the fact that Kai is a fair and honest leader to his own clan.

FERAL HEAT is a brilliant collaboration between Byrnes and Mason and a wonderful paranormal novel. I for one am looking forward to more from these two.
