Half jaguar, half snow leopard shifter Solomon suffered unbearable tortures at the hands of his own father for years.  Protecting his younger siblings from their father gave Solomon a reason to live.  After his father’s death they were all taken in by a flourishing wolf pack and slowly began to heal and thrive.

 

Solomon has taken care of his siblings for so many years that he’s having a hard time these days letting go.  The children are growing up and it’s time to let them spread their proverbial wings, but it’s easier said than done.

 

Working up a sweat and thinking about the changes in his life Solomon suddenly realizes he’s not alone.  Someone is watching him from the nearby woods.  Investigating on his own proves foolhardy when he’s darted and carried off.

 

What his kidnappers don’t know is that years of being drugged and brutalized make Solomon stronger than the darts.  When he sees an opening to attack he takes it.  His only concern is hurting the lone male in the group.  An enemy perhaps.  Solomon’s mate, definitely.

 

It would seem Solomon’s struggles are far from over in Home, the third book in the Spotless series.  His difficulties at Home become inconsequential after the half breed shifter discovers what his mate Azil has suffered.  Tensions simmer when Solomon is missed and build to an inferno in the climax at Home.  Each story in the series is better than the last and works well as a standalone tale.  Solomon’s story is the best yet.

Mixed leopard/puma shifter Steven had protected his younger brother his entire life, sometimes at the cost of severe punishments meant for Adal.  Their own shifter father Bashuan was the evil that controlled the half brothers.  On a mission for their sire Steven and Adal finally make the break.  Vowing to put an end to Bashuan once and for all Steven strikes out on his own to hunt down their father.  He leaves Adal and his mate Dorso in Denver to start their new lives together.

 

When it is discovered that Bashuan’s been slowly poisoning his sons Adal enlists the aid of a powerful wolf shifter shaman.  He sends two wolves, one his own son to find Steven and do what they can to help the leopard/puma heal and fulfill his vow.

 

First contact between Steven and the two wolves, Cole and Shaun goes badly.  The cat shifter doesn’t give them time to explain the situation and Cole is badly injured.  At the same time they are overwhelmed with the fact that the three are mates.  Never before have three shifters of any kind become mates.  Steven’s plans for his father must be carried out, yet at the same purging the poison must be dealt with and forging a triad bond is equally important.  What the fates were thinking when this triad was decided is anyone’s guess.

 

Hunt is a uniquely provocative, deadly cat and mouse, er wolf romance.  Damaged, not yet broken, Steven retained love through his feelings for his brother.  Cole and Shaun kept faith through hope.  Together the triad in Hunt triumphs.  A dangerous foe proves less trouble than the triads own emotional issues with each other.  A powerful tale with a romance featuring ruthless, distinct personalities.  Sensuous loving, delicious heat, and a justified Hunt.

Mixed breed leopard/puma shifter half-brothers Adal and Steven grew up under their brutal, tyrannical leopard shifter father Bashuan.  They would bear the scars he or his men inflicted for the rest of their lives.  Older brother Steven chose to take the brunt of their punishments to protect his tenderhearted little brother.

 

Sent to Denver on a forced shifter retrieval mission the brothers finally make the decision to break free.  Steven leaves to confront and kill Bashuan in order to prevent repercussions to Adal and his newly discovered mate, a human mechanic Dorso Rodriquez.

 

Unfortunately Steven attacked Dorso before the brothers saw a way free.  It’s not the best beginning to a mating between virginal Adal and Dorso.  The human has to deal with hopefully forgiving Steven and accept that shifters exist.  It certainly doesn’t help that Dorso has a hell of a headache from Steven.

 

If Dorso can deal with everything he’s being told maybe, just maybe he can take it slow and easy with Adal because the shifter is sick.  The pills his father lied to the brothers about and made them take are making them sick.  If they can’t get help for the damage that’s been done Dorso won’t have to worry about a mate for long.

 

It is the healing of mind and body, the struggle to find value in one self through the eyes of love.  Take heart in Adal’s story of Hide.  There’s humor and sizzle, sass and sorrow. Adal and Dorso have a rough start in Hide.  No argument.  Love shines through in this imaginative and emotional romance
