Bear shifter Tayme has called the Amazing Adventures Safari Park home his whole life. He and his family, along with the members of his sleuth, live underneath the park in secret. The fact that shifters own and run the park is a well-guarded secret from humans, who don’t know about their existence, but it makes for some pretty lonely shifters. Tayme’s hoping to find his soulmate someday, but he doesn’t know where to look. All he can do is rely on fate and keep his fingers crossed that she’ll show up sooner rather than later.
Red fox shifter Rory is an oddity, an orphan living with the owl shifters who killed her family. When her best friend Jessica is injured during a flight and winds up in the arms of her soulmate, Rory is the only one in the entire nest who supports her. On a trip to visit her bestie, she’s carted off into the woods by a huge male, and she knows she’s found the one male on the planet meant for her.
While Tayme’s family and sleuth welcome her with open arms, the owl nest is anything but welcoming. A meet up with her adoptive parents ends in bloodshed, and Rory feels like she’s once again an orphan. Until strangers come knocking on the park’s front gate one dark night and offer her a chance to be with her own kind again. When faced with the decision, will she remain in the zoo or leave?
So very good!
These are always feel-good stories for me to read, and I really appreciate it. When mate recognition is immediate, trouble is seldom in the relationship; it’s an outside issue. Rory is a feisty girl, helping her best friend, Jess, against their parents’ orders. Tayme is perfect for her, they are such a great match. My admiration goes to Marcus and the other shifters who ensure their shifter family has all the protection they may need. When trouble comes (those owl rulers just don’t learn), Tayme and Rory are safe. A delightful, heartwarming story, with a truly satisfying outcome!
