It has been a while since I stayed up half the night because I couldn't put a book down, but yesterday when I picked up Christine Warren's new book On The Prowl I just kept reading until the end just waiting to see who the real attacker was.
Nic and Saskia are following the traditions of their people, the Tiguri weretigers, with an arranged mating. The two met once when they were much younger, but otherwise have not spent anytime together.
Nic seems to think that Saskia is the perfect poised quiet mate who will blindly be led in their relationship where he wants to go. No emotions accept a respect for one another. Saskia on the other hand believes that there should be a partnership between mates and will do what she needs to, to prove her point.
Meanwhile, someone is attacking the head of the "Others" council and since the Tiguri have never really gotten along with the council there are some who believe that Nic is involved. Saskia isn't about to let her new mate be set up to be blamed. No matter what her mate says she will be a part of finding answers.
Most girls would throw a fit if their parents tried to set up an arranged marriage for them. It's so outrageously old-fashioned—even for a Tiguri family, members of a fierce race of shapeshifting weretigers. But Saskia isn't getting her claws out just yet. She'll go through with this marriage to help unite two powerful families—and because her husband-to-be Nicolas Preda is the sexiest, hunkiest, and only man she's ever wanted…
Of course, marrying an alpha male like Nic comes with its share of danger. As leader of his Streak and head of a global corporation, Nic and his new fiancée must take their places in the jungles of Manhattan—and the local Others seem to have a strict “no pets” policy. In fact, the Council seems to think the Tiguri are at the root of all their problems, including an attempt on the life of its leader. If Nic hopes to protect his name and his mate, it's hunt or be hunted—and he can't do it alone. But if anyone can bring out the beast in him, it's the sexy, savage tigress he's sworn to love…
