Captured by her cougar (Cougar Creek Mate) book 2 by Felicity Heaton
Gabriella might be his enemy… but she’s also alpha-shifter Storm’s true mate.
In the wake of an Archangel attack on Cougar Creek, Storm is seething with a need for revenge against the hunter organisation and the key to it might be the petite blonde mortal he’s locked in his cabin, one he’s determined to make sing for him. Only the beauty has a fiery temperament to match his own, and the more time he spends with her, the more she stokes a fire inside him. One that fills him with a startling and undeniable need to make her sing in another way—in his arms.
Gabriella isn’t going to take her captivity lying down. She’s going to give the pig-headed brute holding her against her will hell until he finally believes she’s innocent. He might be a cougar shifter, but she isn’t afraid of him. Or at least she isn’t afraid of what he is. The way he affects her, the flames that lick through her whenever they’re close, terrifies her though, because the longer she’s around the towering sexy-as-sin shifter, the hotter that fire blazes, and it’s only a matter of time before it burns away all her restraint.
With the mating heat and the attack bringing cougars back to the creek, Gabriella is a complication Storm doesn’t need, but she’s one that he wants… because she might just be his one true mate.
Storm is Rath’s brother. He doesn’t live with his brother, but comes once a year to help maintain the cabins and keep the peace between the fighting Cougars. He isn’t keen on the rough living, but it’s his duty to help his brother.
Gabriella isn’t happy, she’s locked in a cabin, after seeing men turn into cougars and her brother try to kill them, then watching the cougar kill her brother. And they believe she is in league with her brother. (He was in some Organization that hunted shifters) So they want answers, so locking her up until she is ready to talk seems like the best plan of action.
Storm doesn’t believe Gabriella didn’t know her brother was a hunter. She must have known. She’s friends with Rath’s mate, so did Lillian tell Gabriella something that triggered the hunters suspicions? And as he is also drawn to this female he is doubly suspicious. He doesn’t want or need a female. He’s happy as he is, but as the other cougars begin to descend and begin to fight, it triggers Storm’s need to protect and mate with this maddening female.
Gabriella and Storm come to a tentative agreement, she’s not allowed to leave the forest, but Gabriella will do as she wants, and she wants to get to know Storm. She didn’t know her brother was a hunter, and was horrified when he told her all he planned to do.
So as the challenge goes for mating rites build up, Storm has to contend with the cougars and his growing feelings for Gabriella.
