Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between him and the future he craves with her. Just days from the night he will finally be free to be with the low-ranking beauty who stole his heart, she walks back into his life and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked towards in the five long years they’ve been apart. Eloise has travelled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams. Will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Cavanaugh needs just 8 days. 8 days til he is free of his Alpha status and free to be with his fated mate as he wants to be, not as is dictated by Pride law. But when Eloise turns up at Underworld demading he return to the Pride and tells hims WHY he must return, he is faced with saving his snow leopard Pride, even if it means he breaks his own heart. We met Cavanaugh briefly in Hunted By A Jaguar, he works in Kyter's bar, and I was intrigued by the silver haired snow leopard. He just needs to wait those 8 days and then he can be with his mate, the love of his life, the only woman he ever loved. But Eloise throws a spanner in the works by turning up to demand his return to the Pride to save them all. He knows he has to go, after she tells him what truly at stake, the forced taking of all the unmated females by the new Alpha, Eloise included. Travelling to the Pride lands take several days, and several overnight stops, but they get there in time. I really liked this book because for a vast majority of the book, its just Cavanaugh and Eloise, on their own travelling. No one else. They get to know each other again, in more ways than one. 5 years since they saw each other and 10 years since they were togother. No one else for either of them in that time, so their coming together is explosive and emotional. When Cavanaugh deals with the Alpha problem, Eloise is heart broken, but only until Cavanaugh tells her his true feelings, and he does it so beautifully, if in a teasing way. We also get a chapter of Bitten By A Hellcat, who appears briefly in Hunted By A Jaguar and I just know thats gonna be one fine ride! 4 stars

I'm a NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY and International Best-Selling Author writing passionate paranormal romance books and series for adults. I love to create detailed worlds, twisting plots, mind-blowing action, intense emotion and heart-stopping romances with leading men that vary from dark deadly vampires to sexy shape-shifters and wicked werewolves, to sinful angels and hot demons! All of them alpha as you would expect in paranormal romance! If you love your angels a little dark and wicked, my best-selling Her Angel romance series is for you. If you like strong, powerful, and dark vampires then try the Vampires Realm romance series or any of my stand alone vampire romance books. If you’re looking for vampire romances that are sinful, passionate and steamy then try my Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series. Or if you like hot-blooded alpha heroes who will let nothing stand in the way of them claiming their destined woman then try the Eternal Mates series. It’s packed with sexy heroes in a world populated by elves, vampires, fae, demons, shifters, and more. If sexy Greek gods with incredible powers battling to save our world and their home in the Underworld are more your thing, then be sure to step into the world of Guardians of Hades. Fans of paranormal romance books by authors Lara Adrian, J R Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Gena Showalter, Larissa Ione, Kresley Cole and Christine Feehan will love my books too.
