Continuing with her "Eyes" series, Maya Banks delves into the story of what happened to Aliyah's sister (i.e. "Golden Eyes"). At a young age Aliyah lost her sister Kaya while they were playing by their home in Alaska. The two girls were shifted at the time. Aliyah shifted into a cheetah and Kaya into a cougar. Both species not found in Alaska. When Kaya gets stuck in a trap she is taken away and brought to the Colorado mountains where cougars are normally found.
For years Kaya lives on her own until she meets Jericho and Hunter. She first approaches them in her cougar form and then in human. At first Jericho and Hunter don't realize that she is one and the same and it takes a bit for the two men to understand exactly what she is. As they spend time together and grow to trust each other, Kaya becomes more secure in her surroundings, but all that changes in an instant when the two men are sent out on a new mission.

Their final mission will be to win her love.
A beautiful, vulnerable woman appears at the high country cabin where Hunter and Jericho live between assignments. They are captivated by their stunning, reticent visitor and vow to protect her—and uncover what she's hiding. Neither is prepared for the unbelievable. Their beautiful innocent is a cougar shifter who's spent a lifetime alone.
In the shelter of their love, Kaya blooms, finally willing to trust—and embrace her humanity again. Then Hunter and Jericho are called away on a mission that goes terribly wrong. Now, pregnant, and alone once more, she must find her way in a world she doesn't belong to—and hope that the two men she loves will find their way home.
