Neither wanting to be alone on Christmas, Niki and Dean get together for a sex fest on Christmas. From the start Dean realizes that Niki is his mate, but when he says so out loud in sleepy passion Niki knows that is her que to leave. Three months later Dean estranged brother comes and tell Dean that his pregnant mate is in trouble and they most go and rescue her.
Niki has always known that she can't have a normal life and bringing a mate, or a baby in her life would be a disaster. There is something about Dean that she can't stop thinking about and when he pushes himself back into her life will she ever be able to let him go as she knows she should.
This is a good story with excellent characters, but, even though the author expanded it from the short White Cougar Christmas, there are still a lot of room for more details and a continuing story. It would be interesting to have some more time with Niki's background and family and more time for Niki and Dean to get together more.
Overall I like this series and this book, I just want more.
Dean had a family once. Until tragedy and betrayal consumed them. Now he lives on his own terms keeping life simple and carefree. Then one night leads to one bite and he's forced back into a dangerous world that reminds him he's still as angry as ever and this time he's not leaving until he gets what he wants. Niki.
Niki Harris has lived a life of secrets and solitude with no interest in making a change. But an easy one night stand turns complicated and she finds herself marked. Now she has to decide, tell the sexy shifter with a possessive streak a mile wide she's pregnant and in danger or do what she's always done--run.
Be Were is the full story from the free first chapter bonus, White Cougar Christmas.
