I loved this story. It was different than other shifter stories that I have read. It still had the mate business but the way it was handled was great! I loved that the whole instinct to 'mate' was delayed because of the need to 'CARE' for their mate first. What a concept!!! I think that, in and of itself, took me in and hugged me and I was happy.
I am going to be reading the next installment. And I am kinda mad that I didn't wait till two or three were published. I would have literally gotten the next one and started reading now.
