Kira MacDonald is in trouble. Plagued by false visions and erotic dreams of a man she’s never met, she fears losing both her psychic powers and her sanity. The cure? Finding and bonding with her mate. The stubborn red-haired warrior might not want one, but fate has other plans, plans that include her rescuing Lucas Gunn.
As the Guardian of his shape-shifting clan, Lucas Gunn lived a quiet, solitary life. Until he was kidnapped, examined, and tortured. Now imprisoned, his only tie to the outside world is the memory of his dreams and the passionate woman who appears nightly in them. He thought she was nothing more than a vision. Then she came for him.
An uneasy alliance, a mating call that won’t be denied, rituals that must be honored, and unrelenting enemies who will stop at nothing to get what they want. It all comes together in the first of Eliza Gayle’s sensational Black Cougar Series. Passion and Pride. Duty and Danger. In the end, there’s really only one choice…for Lucas.
Lucas is a very fast paced love story. The bond between Lucas & Kira is so strong, and comes on fast. To be able to sense somebody mentall , and communicate with them mentally without ever meeting them. WOW ! That would be kinda erie, and kewl all at once!
One key point a had a hard time with was the begining where Lucas is held captive. You have no idea how long he was there, how he was captured, or why he was kidnapped. You do find out who did capture him, but not alot of reasoning to go with it. I would have liked to have a little bit more into this part of the story.
Kira, now i really like her character! Very strong willed young women. I would have liked to have a little bit more of an insite into her past also, but.......I know, they have to keep you hanging on waiting for more! ;0)
I was really captivated by Lucas's brother Kane. Just the little bit of a glimpse you get of him in this story.....I bet he's fiesty! I can not wait to get the chance to read his story. Now into the story a bit i had a bit of an eye bulge moment when you get a peek into the things the brothers have done together in their past. And there is also a little scene where you get a glimpse of what types of things their pasts involve. That REALLY makes me want to read Kane's story!
Now there are laws that the brothers have to abid by for their clan. If not followed, there is punishment. Some of the laws between all the different clans. Its totaly craizness! It really makes you want to know how the story will continue, and how Lucas & Kira will deal with the lifes fate has dealt them.
All in all i think this was a very fast paced, keep you on the edge of your seat story. And i am very much anticipating how the story will continue, and what new twists it will bring us!
