Blessed—or cursed—with the ability to change into a sleek panther, and driven by a dark soul he’s accepted as his fate, Adrik Wilder abandons his family and his honor to pursue a life of wickedness. He excels at every vice, including kidnapping Karen Sonnet to use for his selfish purposes.

But Karen’s spirit and passion make him question the force of his family’s curse. And when a new evil emerges, Adrik must choose whether to enact revenge on his enemies and redeem his soul, or save Karen from a fate worse than death…

Now for MY take on it:

I hadn’t realized that when my sister had borrowed it from the local library that we were reading the 3rd book of a series- so I might be a little biased in my review. But I thought it was a good book. The story was a little scattered for my taste and a little too fast paced. I also thought it ended rather oddly- which I figured a 4th book will pick up where this one left off. But it did have some rather sexy and racy “romantic” scenes. So if you don’t enjoy reading about where characters are making love, you might want to skip those parts. I considered it worth my time to read and couldn’t put it down once I started reading. My heart raced wildly at the thought that everything would turn out okay. Not to mention those steamy scenes where you want to be in love just for the sake of those scenes.

Afterward, as she slid off to sleep, she thought she hear him say, in a slow, hoarse voice, “You make me real again.”
