Book Description:

Danica Welsh was born to be the leopard pack healer. An accident involving a drug induced youth left her badly burned and scared—emotionally and physically. Without the ability to heal by touch, she secludes herself to the edge of town, away from Ashwood Falls’ overly concerned citizens. All hope of mating and family become a distance dream. When she finally starts to accepts the long, lonely existence ahead of her, a stranger crashes into her life, and her heart.

After Nevan Mathews’ fiancée died three ago, he submerged himself into his work, cutting off all reminders of a life he dreamed of with the woman he loved. He lets his step-mother talk him into taking the first vacation in five years to visit for the holidays. But an accident delays his travel plans, sending him to Danica’s doorstep and raises a need he thought he would never feel again.
Can they tear down the walls around their hearts and submit to the passion before another claims Dani for his own?

Warning: Contains a shifter who's scars run deeper than skin, a human who has the heart of a shifter, and a snow storm that's sure to have them both reaching for warmth.


4 stars

Nevan Matthews isn’t overly excited about his trip, but having lost his fiancée he knows the importance of being with family.  He did not expect to crash his car and find himself getting help from a beautiful woman.   Stranded with no phone and a storm looming, Nevan is intrigued by Danica a leopard shifter, for the first time in a long time Nevan is attracted to another woman.

Danica, a healer whose intervention with a drug induced teen ended with her being scarred and  unable to heal others has withdrawn from her pack seeking solace.  Nevan ignites dormant feelings, but Danica’s insecurities have her reluctant to see what is truly there.  Besides Nevan is human, but what Danica doesn’t realize is there is more to Nevan than she knows.

Fast paced story, I thought this was highly creative especially the premise.  Both Nevan and Danica are resistant initially but the reasons why are so thoughtfully laid out you feel connected with the characters.  This was the first book of Lia Davis I have read and I can’t wait to read more.  I am always searching for shifter stories and luckily I have found another one to enjoy.
