Cora is a raven shifter and freelance former spy who has been hired to protect Finnegan O’Casey, second in line to the throne of House Lupine; a kingdom wherein the king is ailing and the heir to the throne is Finn’s cruel older brother, Brendan. Finn doesn’t realize Cora is actually a blast from his past, but even when that secret is brought to light, neither can deny that the chemistry between them is 🔥🔥🔥. As they spend more time together, Cora’s motives for protecting Finn change from purely professional to something more. And as they work together to expose Brendan for the murderous tyrant he is, the plan they employ to sabotage Brendan’s plans backfires on them, but in the most spectacular way that will change both of their lives (and the future of the series)! 

Such a fun book! This first book is setting up the series to be action-packed, suspenseful and sexy. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

She’s a wily Raven, former spy and though she’s a bird, she’s smart, cunning, and has yet to confront a problem she can’t run over or shoot her way out of. Skills that as corporate fixer hired to do all manner of things has served Cora Westgate well until she is asked to protect a man from her past, His Royal Highness Finnegan O’Casey, second in line to shifter throne. No problem, except she has to do it without his knowledge. The assignment goes from hard to difficult to impossible.

At least until she becomes reacquainted with Finn. He’s charming, sweet, royalty and worse yet, into her in a way that sings of future promises. He’s exactly what she doesn’t have room for in this assignment or her life.

Finn is a werewolf prince with a problem. Several of them, actually, his brother’s impending coronation being the largest at the moment, followed closely by his father dying and this random sexy Corvid woman dropping into his life and blowing it all to hell. All his problems seem to melt away though when he’s holding the sexy Cora in his arms.

From lovers to allies to unwilling allies and back, this promises to be a wild ride through the palace full of hijinks, familial obstacles, and treason and for this prince and his knight with a shiny Glock.
