Synopsis (Goodreads):
In Beat of Temptation , innocent Tamsyn has always had a place in her heart for Nathan, a blooded DarkRiver sentinel. But is she ready for the fierce demands of the mating bond?

In Stroke of Enticement , a wary young teacher, skeptical about love, arouses the man—and the animal—in an aggressive leopard changeling who must prove his affections are true.

Plus 2 NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED NOVELLAS

In Declaration of Courtship , Grace, a shy submissive wolf, finds herself pursued by the last man she ever would have imagined: a SnowDancer lieutenant said to be “mad, bad, and dangerous to know.”

In Texture of Intimacy , SnowDancer healer Lara discovers the searing joys—and unexpected challenges—of being mated to quiet, powerful Walker, a man used to keeping his silence.
My Thoughts on Wild Invitation: I completely love these changelings with their skin privileges and mating bonds and FIERCENESS.

Beat of Temptation - Either I'm the most emotional person on the planet right now or this story was JUST THAT GOOD because I got a little teary while reading it. Tamsyn's devastation when she thought Nate only wanted her because of the mating bond absolutely slayed me. And Nate... trying to do the right thing and give her a chance to experience her freedom when all she wants is him. *weeps* Yeah, this story was a definite winner.

Stroke of Enticement - I love it when those changelings get hit by the one and only right out of the blue. Annie and Zach were ADORABLE. She's wary of love, he knows that she's the one the first time he sees her. Zach's moment with Annie's mom was fantastic. That she only wanted the best for her daughter and had pushed her so hard in one direction to protect her yet was willing to concede that Zach was the one who could make Annie happy... it was perfect.

Declaration of Courtship - *flaily hands* I LOVED the care Cooper took in getting Grace to trust him. It was wonderful and heartbreaking all at the same time because it would have been SO EASY for him to make a mistake and shatter their fragile relationship. On Grace's end, she wanted Cooper so badly but the trust had to come naturally or her wolf would never believe that he wouldn't hurt her or force her. It was hard to watch her battle her instinct to submit with her drive to be Cooper's partner. She was so torn and so worried that he would reach a point where he thought that she wasn't worth the effort. Simply put, this story was sweet and heartbreaking all at the same time.

Texture of Intimacy - Walker. Oh, Walker. His drive to save his family and the heartache he's had to go through in his years of training the Arrows was a killer. Lara and he feel so right together. They just glow. Yeah, they have moments of miscommunication. It happens. And the making up after is the best part.
