Harley Vincent is resigned to life in the human world. Sure, being a margay shifter is half her nature, but life among humans gives her the freedom to roam and do as she pleases. That is, until anti-shifter extremists target her, putting her life in immediate danger.
When an old acquaintance and onetime fling, Jesse Dalton, shows up to offer the protection of his pack, Harley hesitates. She may have feelings for Jesse that go beyond their one-night stand, but life among shifters means giving over her independence to the needs of pack. Plus Mercury Pack has its own threat to face: a rich half-shifter is determined to claim their territory at any cost.
Jesse, who lost his true mate as a child, has wanted Harley since their night together, and he’s not letting her go again. They may not be destined for each other, but he knows she belongs to him and with his pack. Even if he can convince her to join him now, can he convince her to stay?
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in California on the Mercury Pack’s territory.
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Harley Vincent and Jesse Dalton. Harley is trying to do the best she can all on her own but the anti-shifter extremists are not making it easy. After one potential attack hits too close to home an old acquaintance comes to her rescue, much to her surprise. Jesse has always kept an eye on Harley and now it’s finally time to make his move. Can Jesse convince Harley that he is in it for the long haul and that his pack will protect her? Or will their enemies bring ruin to everything and everyone that they love?
Plot: This story has a romance arc between Harley and Jesse, as well as a thriller/suspense arc, and a few side character’s stories!
Writing: This novel was written in third person points of view of Harley and Jesse. It is the second novel in the Mercury Pack series and I recommend reading this series in order.
Curb Appeal: I like the cover although I wish it featured both the main characters not just one! The blurb gives a good rundown on the situation and teases what conflicts may come!
Ultimately: I love the Mercury Pack and this was a great addition to the series!! I really enjoyed all the little extra storylines and characters this novel had!!! All in all, if you are in the mood for hero who will never give up on his girl and a heroine who loves with all her heart then check out Force of Temptation!!!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
