This pent-up panther craves release. But he’s determined to crush his feelings before they crush him…
Lucy Wren is a junior director at Glacier City’s premiere casting firm. She spends her days teasing brilliant performances out of the actors she auditions. And she spends her nights fantasizing about her mentor, tall, dark and handsome Adrian Harkness. When a business trip leaves the two of them in closer quarters than planned, Adrian’s animal magnetism will put her determination to hide her feelings to the test.
Adrian Harkness has been under a spell that granted him reprieve from shifting into a massive wild panther. But the magic that held his animal in check for 300 moons is lifting on the very weekend he’s accompanying his brilliant young protégé on the casting trip of a lifetime. Lucy is talented, hardworking, stunningly sexy and one hundred percent off-limits. It doesn’t matter that Adrian is half in love with her. Or that he can tell she’s attracted to him too. She’s a young woman. For her it’s just a crush... And the panther doesn’t respect limits. Or believe in crushes.
When things go sideways, will Adrian unleash his panther to protect the woman he loves? Or will violence crush this romance before it can blossom?
