Myka, who'd been raised by an abusive stepfather, is not sure that a wild fighter named Spike is the best man to bring up the cute little jaguar cub. She goes to Shiftertown to check out Spike, and finds that the man behind the name is a lonely Shifter who's lost most of his family and is a fierce caretaker to those he has left.
Spike is torn between the cub and his duties as tracker to the Shiftertown leader and asks Myka, the only person who understands, to help him. He starts to like the sassy Myka, a horse trainer who's not afraid of working with animals, even if they're wildcats who turn into humans.
When Spike's job puts his cub and Myka in danger, he is forced to choose between those to whom he's pledged his loyalty and his need to protect the woman and cub he's come to love.
Book 3.5 of Shifters Unbound (Austin Shifters)
The call I must answer …
I wake in the night, knowing something is wrong in the world. Carly, mate of my heart, is next to me, and I hear my son’s breathing. They are safe.
But someone, someone cries out with a despair I can’t ignore ...
Carly won’t let me go alone, and neither will Connor, the cub who will become one of the greatest Shifters of us all—I know this. I see.
But for now, we can’t ignore the call. We take Dylan’s truck and head into the night, on what proves to be the most important mission of my life …
Broderick is everything Joanne is not—a fighter and a tracker, from a rough-and-tumble family, better at working with his hands than understanding the netherworld of Joanne’s computer programmer life. Broderick is also extremely protective, wanting to draw her under his care as he does everyone else.
When Broderick is captured, mistaken for a Guardian, it’s Joanne who figures out that hackers are after the Guardian Network, the database that holds the deep secrets of Shifters past and present. Strangely Broderick now holds the key to stopping the hackers from releasing deadly danger on the Shifters, and Joanne with her coding skills is the only one who can help him.
A short novel of the Shifters Unbound series. Events take place after Bear Attraction.
