In the beginning of this tale, we meet a lone panther that has been denied contact with other shifters. He is an outcast, a lone panther without a home or the comfort of interaction with others like himself. Trying to escape the loneliness, he heads across country to the west coast. Along the way he finds himself pushed and pulled to a small community where he meets a beautiful lynx, Mercy Quinlan. Needing to uncover the reason he has been drawn to this place and to Mercy, Koa decides to stay and uncover the mystery.
All Mercy Quinlan has ever wanted was to escape her hometown and be free to develop the career she wants to pursue in California. But there are forces within her family and community that do not want her to leave. Evil forces that are willing do whatever needs to be done, to control and keep her at home. When Mercy meets Koa ‘Stitch’ Raiden she is immediately attracted to the sizzling hot alpha panther and they share a night of unbridled passion. They are two strangers passing in the night, yet share a bond that cannot easily be forgotten. Mercy is not expecting to run into Koa at her favorite gym the next day and doesn’t know what to do, so she tries to give him the cold shoulder. However, she cannot forget the undeniable bond that they shared.
Each character is well developed and their interaction creates a perfect framework for the action that takes place in this fast moving story.
