Summary

Puma shifter, Del Santoni, has lived her entire life as the heir to a decades' old feud with the Armsford family - a struggle that ended in the death of her own father years ago. Since then, both sides have done nothing but fight and grapple for social power - and Del's sick of it. She's willing to do anything to end the war - even if it means dethroning her own family.

Del begins a secret mission to recover the Maker's Mark. If legend is true, its symbols will reveal the name of the one true ruling family. When the statue is found and someone threatens Del's life in order to steal it, Del is forced to accept the help and protection of her greatest enemy. He is the most stubborn, infuriating werewolf she's ever laid eyes on. He also happens to be her fated mate. Throw in a sassy human car thief who won't leave her alone, a marriage hoax, and tattooed coyote shifters trying to kill her at every rest stop...if she survives the week, it'll be a miracle.

Wolf shifter Zak Armsford has never been accused of being a good guy - but being good doesn't get the job done. Mislabeled and misunderstood, he left Fort Jericho years ago and joined the military to put his bad rep to good use. Now that he's a free man, he's not exactly white collar material. So when his friend from Shifters, Inc. calls with a protection detail, Zak is just hungry enough for some action to say yes.

Turns out his assignment offers plenty of action. Zak discovers he's been hired to protect the Princess of Fort Jericho herself. Del Santoni - his greatest enemy and his childhood crush all in one. Zak can't walk away a second time. To keep Del alive and the statue safe, he'll ruthlessly use his supernatural strength, his connections, and Del's own secrets against her.

On the run, Del struggles with the truth. Is Zak her Fated Mate - or her mortal enemy? Because it's not just Del's heart that's at risk - it's her life.

Sexy, action-packed quickie

A quick, thrilling read with a tortured, sexy alpha and a tough, sassy female. It has a fun Romeo and Juliet vibe and a hilarious tag-along character that I adored. The narrator did a good job of expressing the characters and keeping me engaged in the story.

to short to fast

it's a romeo and juliet type story for sure. everything happened to fast for me. it's like we got the summery of this book. the danger and suspense wasnt long enough. but the plot and storyline was a good one! I didnt like how they did the phone call parts. i couldnt hear it very well. but the idea was cool.

Short and sweet.

The narrator for this story was great! I followed right along with her. I did bump up the speed just a tad but she was great!

This is a fast paced and quick story. Just shy of of 3 hrs of reading time.
Similar to Romeo and Juliet story but with a twist. The main characters are shifters and one is a alpha sent to protect a research group. Instead he finds the woman of his dreams...and his past.
Del is search for a lost treasure that could end a family feud.
Zak is there to protect her...will he protect her at all costs? Pick up this fast read to find out. There is adult content.

Great Book!!

What a cute story.

I loved the rivalry, and bantering back and forth.

And the little twist at the end....

Great Read!!!!

Short and sweet

This story was a short story. It is one of Many from a Shifters Inc series by Georgette St. Claire. I have not read that series so I can’t tell how this plays into it, but the story was t bad but it seemed to miss a bit of a backstory. You had to figure out some of the world of shifters as you go ( shifter stories all have a different world of what others know and kind etc ). Once you figure it out it isn’t bad, quick to the action and ending so not a bad small story!
