Cover Description:

Communicating with others didn’t require the use of a lot of words in Stryker’s mind. He was a man and a cougar…what more needed to be explained. But when the fates give you a mate that needs to be talked into forever a cougar needs to man up and start talking.

Tucked away in her tiny town, Libby was happy with her job at the library, her epic book collection, and her kooky parents. Until one day a mystery man rides into her little world on the back of a motorcycle.

Libby knows all about sex and love in romance novels, now she has to figure out how that translates to real life. A rough biker shifter and a sweet innocent librarian find that a new world of passion can open up with the turn of a page.

Prepare to read about a hot shifter who has to convince the shy librarian that he’s not only her mate, but the right man to be her first. There may not be enough sage and crystals to enlighten this cougar.

 Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Read on for my thoughts on Cougar’s Gift.

Libby wasn’t truly stalking the handsome biker, if she was only watching him from the library window that wasn’t really stalking, right?  She really didn’t understand where this obsession came from.  She simply had to watch him, she felt connected to this stranger in some way.  And when he disappeared for almost a month, Libby figured he’d moved on.  Until he showed up, again.

Stryker’s first indication that he’d found his mate was as he was being screamed at by this petite beauty intent on pounding on his chest.  He had no clue who she was or why she was so angry with him – but he did know one thing, she was his.

Cougar’s Gift is the story of the last Hayes sibling to find his mate.  Stryker was a man, or a cougar, of few words.  He’d made no plan to find his mate, he knew she existed somewhere and that they’d meet when the fates meant them to.  He never figured on a small town librarian whose knowledge of romance came strictly from books.  A beauty whose parents are hippy throwbacks who definitely need adult supervision.  He never expected it to be so difficult to tell her that not only was he rich, but he was a shifter as well.  He got the I love you part right.  And they definitely got the sex part totally right.  But he left it too late to tell her everything.  He never lied, he just didn’t tell the whole truth.  And that might cost him everything.

Libby and Stryker’s romance is touching, funny, sensious and a very good example of a man a few words communicating both well and badly.  I enjoyed their romance very much.  If I had to pick a favorite sibling in this series, I don’t think I could.  Each has been charming and unique.  Now the wait to discover what’s next.
