Title: Force of Temptation Series: The Mercury Pack #2
Author: Suzanne Wright
Harley Vincent is resigned to life in the human world. Sure, being a margay shifter is half her nature, but life among humans gives her the freedom to roam and do as she pleases. That is, until anti-shifter extremists target her, putting her life in immediate danger.
When an old acquaintance and onetime fling, Jesse Dalton, shows up to offer the protection of his pack, Harley hesitates. She may have feelings for Jesse that go beyond their one-night stand, but life among shifters means giving over her independence to the needs of pack. Plus Mercury Pack has its own threat to face: a rich half-shifter is determined to claim their territory at any cost.
Jesse, who lost his true mate as a child, has wanted Harley since their night together, and he’s not letting her go again. They may not be destined for each other, but he knows she belongs to him and with his pack. Even if he can convince her to join him now, can he convince her to stay?
Harley's life is going normal as usual while living in the human world until one night when Jesse comes to her rescue. She hasn't seen him in years after they spent one night together, and now she's learning all kinds of things about him. Jesse has Harley come to live with him since her life is in danger, but she doesn't make it easy especially when he declares his intentions with her. Now, Harley must decide if Jesse is what she really wants or if she wants to keep on living like she was. This book was really good! I really enjoyed Harley and Jesse together, and I loved the whole plot line of the story as well. The only thing that bothered me was the fact that we don't know anything about Harley's fated mate. I was sort of hoping that Jesse and Harley were really fated, but that didn't exactly happen. However, it still ended on a good note, and we got to read about previous characters as well so it all worked out in the end.
