Un libro de la saga "Almas gemelas"

El veterinario Seth Davies llega a Senaka, Wyoming, en busca de paz y anonimato, intentado escapar de su pasado. Siempre ha sido blanco de los problemas y el dolor, y ha tenido más que suficiente de ambos. Kasey Whitedove echa un vistazo a Seth y asume lo peor. Ningún hombre blanco podría amar a los animales de la forma en que la mayoría del pueblo cheyene espera, y Kasey convierte los primeros días de Seth en Senaka en más que desagradables.

Entonces, un accidente pone a Kasey en la incómoda posición de tener que tragarse sus palabras —y desear desesperadamente a Seth— a pesar de los peligros de la vida de Kasey como hombre lobo y de los estresantes secretos de Seth. Perseguir a Seth y mantenerle a salvo de su pasado se acaba convirtiendo en la tarea más importante para Kasey.

Lord Mouse

Lords of Davenia

Scoundrel by nature and master thief by trade, Mouse is the best there is. Sure, his methods may not make him many friends, but he works best alone anyway. And he has never failed a job.

But that could change.

When a stranger with a hefty bag of gold seduces him to take on a task, Mouse knows he’ll regret it. The job? Free Lord Garron, the son of a powerful duke arrested on trumped up charges in a rival duchy. Mouse doesn’t do rescue missions. He’s no altruistic hero, and something about the job reeks. But he cannot turn his back on that much coin—enough to buy a king’s pardon for the murder charge hanging over his head.

Getting Garron out of his tower prison is the easy part. Now, they must escape an army of guardsmen, a walled keep and a city on lockdown, and a ruthless mage using her power to track them. Making matters worse, Mouse is distracted by Garron’s charm and unyielding integrity. Falling for a client can lead to mistakes. Falling for a nobleman can lead to disaster. But Mouse is unprepared for the dangers behind the plot to make Lord Garron disappear.

A do-gooder named Jonathan White has information the witch needs, and it’s Regis’s job to get that information and slit Jonathan’s throat. But then Regis actually meets Jonathan. And Jonathan is perfect—a hero with a passion for justice and little regard for civility.
