SASSY NOTE: Awesome cover! I'm tempted to turn to the old jokes here. You know, the one about "is that a gun you are holding, or are you just pleased to see me?"...but I won't.

Honie has been given a job escorting a group of shifters, during which she discovers her mate. Only she has pieces of her memory missing and is working to get them back. Between her anger at being left and the demands her body makes for it's mate, she has decisions to make.
Mace had believed his mate was dead or he never would have left her. To find her alive- and angry- simply means he has to find a way to get through her defenses and make her see reason. So for now he'll use this trip to his advantage and perhaps a little of the sex he knows she'll never be able to refuse to get her to listen.
Battle of the sexes- shifter style. Mates who can't ignore one another, but make it as difficult as possible, hot monkey sex, dangerous territory, vengeance and retribution; everything to make a good book better. I love it when a woman makes a man pay for his stupidity. Huzzah.
