This installment revolves around FBI agent (and Shifter) Xavier and dancer Caprise Delgado. Both X and Caprise are strong but damaged people who watch their feelings grow before they realize they are true companheiros — mates. Returning to the world of the Shadow Shifters Arthur brings back the heat and danger, in a big way. The Stateside Shifters from other regions are also being introduced, making room for exciting upcoming stories.
As the D.C. pack consolidates their territory, Sabar continues to sell lethal drugs and bring attention to the Shifter universe. X is at Athena’s for no particular reason when a very familiar face appears as the next exotic dancer: Caprise. X also picks up the scent of Rogues, which makes his first priority getting Caprise out of danger. They also manage to give in to their mutual desires. Neither one is looking for more, but X knows that Caprise is hiding from something and someone. Her stalker is constantly calling and threatening but she refuses to seek help, frustrating X. But, of course, X has his own secrets. (ST. MARTIN’S, Apr., 336 pp., $7.99)
