Consumed by their raw attraction,
they misread what stalks them in the wilderness.Post-apocalyptic Earth: after alien invasion, AEI, 2064 AD, The Wild
Review by Book Monster Guest Reviewer
Aliens have taken over the world and have genetically manipulated humans so that some are born shifters. Sierra suffers a tragedy when her mate dies and given to his brother Jackel for protection. What Jackel doesn't know is that Sierra is a cougar shifter, which is the shifter most sought after by aliens which meant that Sierra was more sought after than all others and is a target for humans to hand over to the aliens for money.
I loved the characters in this story! Sierra has suffered a lot in her life but she can take care of herself, in fact she can kick ass, she is also witty and charming in the way she doubts her own worth. Jackal is extremely hot but you sometimes want to bash him over the head for some of the things that he said and some of the things that he didn't! Yet this is one of the things that made him very endearing to me. I particularly loved the way he tries to spoil Sierra even as she is perplexed by it.
This is a story full of love, loss and danger around every corner. A great read!
4 out of 5 stars.
With her beloved Shifter mate two days in Oregon’s ground, Sierra must choose to live or die. She has two options—join a Shifter clan by choosing a mate or live alone. Life is dangerous for a woman after the extraterrestrial invasion. Women choose protection in a group or are sold into slavery, even to the aliens. She opts for the protection of the clan, him.
He’s glorious. Empathetic. And resolved to mark her. He will not lose her. Jackal, the powerful right-hand Shifter of the clan’s leader, her brother-in-law, is determined she will be taken care of properly as mates aren’t easily come by. Especially in The Wild. But they just met, and she fights mating in her early stages of mourning. Honor-bound with a vow made over his brother’s death bed to see her safe, he internally swears to win her love. Whatever it takes.
But she harbors a dangerous secret. Born a Cougar, she dares not risk revealing she’s a Shifter, or bounty hunters will descend upon the remote mountain village to capture her for extraterrestrials. Villagers would die in the attacks. However, her Cougar rises up to claim Jackal for its mate. Shifter meets Cougar. Cougar claims her mate. Never-ending fireworks mark their raw attraction. But when the post-apocalyptic world is determined to tear them apart, will Normals, Shifters, or aliens win? Bet your money on COUGAR
