Called on a dangerous assignment, leopard shifter Conner Vega returns to the Panama rain forest of his homeland, looking every bit the civilized male. But as a member of the most lethal of the shifter tribes, he doesn t have a civilized bone in his body. He carries the scent of a wild animal in its prime, he bears the soul-crushing sins of past kills and he s branded with the scars of shame inflicted by the woman he betrayed. Isabeau Chandler is a Borneo shifter who s never forgiven Conner or forgotten him. The mating urge is still with her, and when she crosses Conner s path, passions burn like wildfire. But as Conner s mission draws Isabeau closer, another betrayal lies waiting in the shadows and it s the most perilous and intimate one of all."
