From the rear cover:- Wreathed in mists that are older than time, the mountain sanctuary of Jesse Clawfoot is threatened and an ancient magic transforms him into a cougar. Ferocious. Powerful. On the prowl and lethally silent - until his instincts compel him to hunt for a mate, one who will help keep his people from extinction. His keen senses lead him to Dakoda Jenkins, whose beauty and compelling sensuality awaken his deepest lust and most ardent desire. Once aroused, Jesse must lure he to his hidden lair...and unleash her wildest passion.
That synopsis has very little to do with the story since the first time Dakoda and Jesse see each other, Jesse is caged by poachers in cougar form and Dakoda and her partner are Rangers attempting to arrest his captors who kill her partner and put her in a cell with the cougar. There is no lair but an Indian encampment they eventually reach after escaping from the backwoods family of criminals who were holding them for sale to the highest bidder. Dakoda has a lot of insecurities relating to a tragic childhood. Jesse did not grow up in the mountains of South Carolina but came here after discovering his heritage and dropping out of college. I did enjoy the story and look forward to the next installment involving Jesse's brother Chief Joseph and his wife Katherine. Warning - this book is sexually explicit.

The sex was hot but I could lay it down and come back to it, felt like it was incomplete somehow.:-)

Based on the back blurb of this book, I thought this book would be very interesting and I would very much enjoy it. Unfortunately, the blurb had nothing to do with the book itself. I don't know if the blurb was written by someone who hadn't read the book or what happened, but it was completely inaccurate.

Jesse and Dakoda (whose name is sometimes spelled Dakota throughout the book) meet when Jesse (who starts out in cougar form) is caught by poachers and Dakoda is one of the rangers who tries to stop them. Of course, the rangers don't succeed and Dakoda is also captured. While in captivity, we learn that Jesse is one of the Tlvdasti- a tribe of "Indians" who can shift into cougar form- and insists that Dakoda is at least part Tlvdasti as well. The poachers have been capturing Tlvdasti and selling them into slavery for some time, and that is what they intend to do with Jesse and Dakoda. In fact, they already have a buyer lined up for a "mated pair" (despite not knowing ahead of time that Dakoda would happen along and happen to be Tlvdasti and that she and Jesse would happen to *actually be* a mated pair... can you say Plot Hole?).

Anyway, I read a bit more, but it was a struggle, and after about the halfway point when there were more plot holes and I was just not enjoying the book at all, I finally gave up. I *wanted* to like this book, because it seemed like my cup of tea, but it was just lacking something. Perhaps my expectations were led astray and I never got over that. Perhaps I just wasn't in the right frame of mind. But, really, I just think that the combination of plot holes, handy coincidences, and everything else doomed this book from the start for me.

So, it wasn't for me, but it might be for you. Give it a try!
