"Kira MacDonald is in trouble. Plagued by false visions and erotic dreams of a man she-s never met, she fears losing both her psychic powers and her sanity. The cure? Finding and bonding with her mate. The stubborn red-haired warrior might not want one, but fate has other plans, plans that include her rescuing Lucas Gunn.
As the Guardian of his shape-shifting clan, Lucas Gunn lived a quiet, solitary life. Until he was kidnapped, examined, and tortured. Now imprisoned, his only tie to the outside world is the memory of his dreams and the passionate woman who appears in them. He thought she was nothing more than a vision. Then she came for him.
An uneasy alliance, a mating call that won-t be denied, rituals that must be honored, and unrelenting enemies who will stop at nothing to get what they want. It all comes together in the first of Eliza Gayle-s sensational Black Cougar Series. Passion and pride. Duty and danger. In the end, there-s really only one choice-for Lucas."
**Book Given to me for review, but the thoughts are all my own.
I have such a thing for alpha males that when the review request for this book cameup, I jumped at the chance.
Lucas and Kira's story is very interesting, intriguing and fun to nerve recking. They have similar origins but have so many secrets to hide from each other that it takes a long time for them to realize they are on the same side.
Lucas is a shifter and has been captured by people who want him to shift right in front of them. Kira is psychic and has been having visions of her mate, Lucas, while he is in danger.
She rushes off and saves him, but he doesn't trust her at first and thinks she is just one of the bad guys trying to get him to put down his guard.
I really enjoyed the ups and downs of both of them and seeing them falling for each other. The sex scenes are really hot and Lucas has such a kinky side that its easy to get all hot and bothered reading it.
The only thing that bothered me in the book was a certain lack of back story. I mean, we get to sort of understand about the clans Kira and Lucas come from and a bit about their rules, but in my opinion a lot was left out and it was enough to leave me confused for a while. I get the need to keep a certain mystery, but it felt as if I was supposed to know some of it and I didn't.
Other than that, Lucas was definitely a fun read. I recommend it for any fans of paranormal smut out there and I am happy to know that there will be more books in this series, Im definitely looking forward to them =)
