Having lost his parents and mate in a brutal attack on his cougar shifter pride by a hunter organisation, Rath burns with a need to keep humans off his land and out of his life. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect his pride from them, but when a lone female wanders into his territory, it isn’t a burning need to drive her away he’s feeling and it isn’t his pride that needs protecting—it’s his heart.Thoughts on Claimed by Her Cougar: Oh, man, I liked this one. A surly, solitary male cougar meets a wandering human woman and...well, acts surly. As surly people act.
Down on her luck, Ivy follows a lead to a spot where she hopes to photograph black bears, but what she discovers there is a mountain of a man who lacks manners and seems determined to drive her off his property—a man who stirs unbidden fire in her veins and a strange sense of home.
With a pride gathering on the verge of happening at Cougar Creek and the air charged with a mating heat, the last thing Rath needs is a human on his land, especially one as beautiful and alluring as Ivy, one who rouses a fierce need to fight for her, but he can’t convince himself to let her go… and that proves dangerous for them both.
Rath has his reasons, though. As one of the guardians of his pride, it's his (and his brothers') duty to keep his people safe. Ivy showing up out of the blue claiming she's only there to take pictures of black bears in the area sends all his senses tingling. Even after she proves she's just a wildlife photographer and not an advance scout for Archangel, he's still on edge.
But that's kinnnnda because she stirs his other instincts, you know? The non-protective ones. Well, wait. He still has protective instincts toward her, but the ones I'm talking about involve a bed and lots of growling.
Except Rath isn't ready to drop his guard and go for the gold. His cougar is, but his man-side is a little more leery.
Good thing his animal side is insistent.
I'm loving being back in the Eternal Mates world. Rath and the cougars have a big shindig coming up that will likely throw a wrench into all the brothers' plans. Rath's orderly world has already been upended by one lone human female. Not that he's complaining, mind you. The guy got WAY more than he bargained for when he stormed up to Ivy and demanded she get off his land.
And by that, I mean he got everything he wanted even though he didn't know he wanted it.
