Book Description:

Angelique had no idea her black panther tattoo would force her to abandon the love of her life—Connor O’Reilly—but she’s determined to keep him safe no matter how much it hurts. Her tattoo doubles as her feline familiar: loving, protective, dangerous, and with a life of its own. It’s also her deepest secret and draws enemies who desire its power for themselves.

Connor has no idea why Angelique left him, but he’s determined to win her back. As a werewolf, he has secrets of his own. Now his alpha is ready to force him to pair with an ex-girlfriend he can’t stand unless he can find Angelique and claim her as his mate. But even as their secrets threaten to keep them apart, hidden enemies seek to destroy their chance at love forever.

4 Stars

Werewolf Connor O’Reilly is being forced to mate, it wouldn't be so bad if the woman he had already given his heart to hadn't run away without any explanation.   Angelique Trinette has a secret, a black panther tattoo that also is her familiar, it is as if two different personalities share one body.  The problem is her panther is unpredictable and she was not willing to take the chance of harming Connor, but she did not know Connor had his own secrets to reveal.

Captivating story that was filled with twists that had me wondering how it would end.    I thought the premise of a shifter and a familiar was refreshingly new, I have not read this style of story before.  Perfect beginning for a new series.
