After the tragic death of his parents when Talon was young, he’s dedicated his life to protecting the Pantera. To the strikingly gorgeous man, loyalty and honor mean everything. So it’s no surprise that he’s determined to treat Isi Rousseau as the enemy. If the elders believe she is a danger then he will do whatever necessary to prevent her from destroying his beloved Wildlands. But discovering the delicate beauty sleeping in his bed, Talon discovers his noble intentions wavering. The female, with short, jet black hair streaked with blue, and a pair of dark eyes, might act tough, but it’s obvious to him that she’s as desperate as he is for a place to call home. More importantly, her presence is helping keep Ashe and her baby alive.
Suddenly things are not quite as black and white as Talon assumed, and he must decide if his loyalty to his people is worth losing his true mate.

He shouldn’t want his best friend’s little sister…
The drop-dead gorgeous leader of the Geeks, Xavier has one goal: find the human male his enemies seek. Devoted to his work, and to the Pantera, there is nothing that can distract him from accomplishing his goal. Until he spots his best friend’s little sister alone and partying it up with a bunch of human males at the local bar. Consumed with possessiveness, Xavier takes her home and refuses to leave her side until her brother returns. He tries to convince himself he’s just looking out for her, but the longer he’s around Amalie, the harder it is to deny the molten attraction that burns between them.
She has three days to change his mind…
Beautiful and strong-willed Hunter, Amalie is free. No brother to tell her what to do, and no Pantera watching over her because she happens to be the last Pantera born. But before she can truly enjoy herself, her brother’s best friend tries to put her on lockdown. Xavier has been the star in all of Mal’s fantasies, and there’s no one she’d rather give her virginity to. But the sexy male refuses to open his eyes and see what’s right in front of him. Mal knows she has three days to change his mind. Three days to make him see her as grown, and the one female he can’t resist.

Review By LT
My Rating: 5
Talon is a Pantera hunter and finds himself babysitting one of the leaders human mate’s twin sister. The Pantera are humans who can change into a Puma and they live in the Wildlands surrounded by magic. Isi didn't know she had a twin but she was aware of the Pantera and she also knew she didn’t want to go anywhere near the Wildlands because it made her deathly ill. So when her friend drugged her and deposited her in the one place she didn’t want to be, then introduced her to a twin sister who was even sicker than she was, Isi felt the pull and the need of her very pregnant sister who started to feel better just from Isi being near. Sadly that didn’t go both ways. Isi only started feeling better when she was taken to a house that hadn’t been lived in for years. She found comfort in a room and a scent that relaxed her, until the owner of the house and scent came home. Talon knew he wanted her but with everyone believing Isi would destroy them, he tried to fight his feeling for her.

Xavier is a Geek and his job was to find the father of the two humans and now mates to two of the Pantera. Hoping he could find their father he could get answers to why one daughter was sick while pregnant with the first Pantera baby in 50 yrs and why everyone thought the other daughter would destroy the Wildlands. But he was also stuck babysitting his best friend’s baby sister, who wasn’t a cub anymore. Mal is now a grown woman and a Hunter and she has been crushing on X since she was youngster. But no matter what she did she couldn’t get him to notice her as a woman.  Little did she know, X has had her on his mind the whole time feeling like his feelings for her were wrong because he was so close to his best friend who is also her older brother. When they combine their skills to track the twin sister’s father, they can no longer fight the need to mate. Now they only have to explain that to her big brother.
