Ty has order that all werehyenas leave the area at once. Trista is working to just survive. She has never been part of the hyena clan, but has lived on the fringes of the clan. She knows about the purge, but insists she is just visiting according to law.
No one in the werebear clan knows the rules better than Keen, so when he agrees that she is doing everything by the rules of the werelaw, Ty allows her to stay. She must continue to follow those rules and when she is delayed the werewolf alpha decides it is time to step in and enforce the purge by killing her.
Keen will do whatever it takes to protect Trista, who he declares as his mate.
This book is by far the best in the series. I think that these two make the best couple in all the books. They compliment each other in so many ways, from backgrounds to current problems.
In book 4 Love at First Roar, werebear Issac is ready to leave town because he knows that with his current clan he is never going to find a mate. Since the fight with the hyenas (from book 1) Issac was left scarred on the face and most of the female werebears can't even stand looking at his face. As the town's healer that is a problem for him.
His new neighbor, weremole Kira doesn't seem bothered by his scars at all. Of course Kira is mostly blind and has scars of her own. Issac's bear takes immediately to Kira of course both Issac and his bear can do without her dog, but that's something they can handle if they have her.
When a werebear female comes after Kira with the same poison that the hyenas to scar his face, there are lots of questions that need answers.
This is one of the books that it is best to read the first book in the series before this one. Although there isn't much about Issac in the first book you do begin to understand his character more.
Kira is the best of the mates in this series. I love her strength and sense of humor.
Half-hyena, Trista has spent years rotating between Grayslake, Redby, and Boyne Falls. When the Grayslake Itan—the local clan’s werebear leader—orders a purge of all hyenas, she finds herself fighting to hold onto the hand-to-mouth life she’s created. Her carefully built existence is threatened further when a gorgeous werebear strides into her life and demands not just her heart, but her very soul. She’ll think about it, but not until her shift ends at seven.
Keen seems like a happy-go-lucky, sex-and-sin werebear, but that’s nowhere near the truth. In reality, his inner-animal wants to go on a bloody rampage and kill half of Grayslake—just because it can. After that, it wants to claim the seductive, curvaceous half-hyena female Keen can’t get out of his head. The animal doesn’t care that most bears wouldn’t mind a little hyena tartare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Nope, it peers at her through Keen’s human eyes and has one thought: mate.
When push comes to shove, Keen has to decide if he would rather have the family he was born with, or Trista—the woman who makes him realize that true happiness comes in a lush, hyena-shaped package.
