Concealing her own considerable magical powers, Caitlyn enters the service of the northern Witch Queen masquerading as a simple healer. Under order from her goddess, she’s searching for a magical gem stolen long ago from her own people, believed to be hidden in the massive castle. The task is daunting but Caitlyn is sure she can locate the gem and escape, bringing the prize back to the temple where it belongs. Until she meets the captive shifter and her loyalties become dangerously divided.

In payment for her past services to his people, Kyler the leopard shifter has entered into a life of servitude far from his forest home, allowing the Witch Queen to tap his magic to power her ever darker spells. Factions at Court are threatening to turn the Queen to the Shadow. Her increasing demands for magic will cut short his nearly immortal lifespan. Kyler’s resigned to his fate until the day he crosses paths with the new arrival, whose secrets and magic entice and attract both man and leopard. Has he met his mate at last?

The Queen will never willingly release him from captivity. Caitlyn’s goddess refuses to grant her any delay in accomplishing her own task. Can they locate the magical gem, fight the Shadow and win free of the Witch Queen to earn the right to be together?

I may not be a girly-girl but this cover is gorgeous!!!! It sucked me in right away, totally eye grabbing. I was just really hopeful that the story about measure up to this visual stunner. And the survey says.....it did!

Talk about a mystical wonderland, this story had all the magic tricks you could wish for. As someone who's a vampire junky, this hot shifter tale really cast its spell on me. Maybe I was just thirsty for a change, maybe the hot males in this one were ripe for the taking. Maybe, who cares! I loved this story from the start to the finish!

A really bright and well developed lead male had me meowing for more. I want to pet these hot kitty's BAD! Can a vampire and a cat mate? Cause if they can then deal me in! Plus Caitlyn is no shrinking flower, she's strength and soft completeness all at once. Awesome adventure and some nail biting fighting keep me in every single moment of this tale and it's only book one! Where and when can we get the next installment? I'm hooked already and can't wait to see what the author does next.

The door has just been cracked open and I will happily wait until the next dish in this tasty tale is served up!
