Werepuma and sheltered virgin Kara Vinsenz has no idea how to entice men, furry or otherwise. She contacts Madame Eve of the 1Night Stand matchmaking service in a desperate attempt to avoid a terrible arranged marriage to a psychopathic shifter. In a daring move that goes against her confined upbringing, she poses as her twin sister to escape her family compound in the hopes of meeting an Alpha and a Beta strong enough to be her mates. She waits to meet them until she goes into heat and is totally unprepared for the consequences of her actions.
Ben Harkil and Jude Carson are on the hunt for the perfect Alpha female to complete their Pride and when they meet Kara, they believe their prayers have been answered. What starts out as a 1Night Stand ends up being so much more when Kara realizes that her lies may have doomed from the start the only love that can save her and her Pride from a madman.
A hot and steamy read that left me sighing. This is the third in Mayburn's new Prides of the Moon series which is part of Decadent Publishing's 1 Night Stand series.
Madame Eve of the 1 Night Stand dating service is batting 1000 with another perfect match in this thirty-nine page short. I wonder if Madame Eve can set me up for a one night stand that turns into forever like this one?
Ben & Jude, bisexual werepumas from the second story in this series, get back together with Madame Eve to see if she can find someone to complete their trio and start their pride.
Kara, werepuma, has been sequestered for most of her life by her father because she is the heir to the pride and therefore must be kept pure for the perfect match. She's changed places this night with her twin to go on a one stand so she can have sex and therefore be deemed unworthy of the psycho male she's been promised to next month. Somehow he's found out and is close to finding her. Can she rely on Ben and Jude to keep her safe?
Although this features characters from the second story in the series, this is a stand alone story. The second story tells the reader how the guys got back together and this one tells us how the new pride gets started with the first female.
M/F, a little M/M and M/F/M love and I rate it a Four Alarm Fire #@!%$ (4/4) on the heat scale.
I read this, along with Mayburn's other two in this series in one sitting. I think this is my favorite of the first three stories.
