A cat, a demon and a bear. Oh my.
Jericho Dark Walker is a Bear, born to shift into both an animal’s and man’s form. He’s second in command to the mixed group of shifters living in the Great Forest. For years it had been his dream to see his clan reintroduced to the land of their ancestors. But now that he’s back he finds himself restless, unable to find joy in even the simplest back scratch or hive of honey. The female shifters offer little challenge, more than eager to bed the Great Clan’s beta, and with everyone getting along, there’s little more for him to do than break up the rare fight.
When an opportunity arrives to represent the clan and work with the athmae to oust an evil plaguing the outer edge of the Great Forest, he gratefully volunteers. The alpha’s brother has mated with an athmae—a demon—so Jericho thinks he knows what to expect. But his new partner is anything but typical. The athmae assigned to work with him is a male demon as large as Jericho, and just as deadly. No sex demon, but a hunter with the instincts of a true predator. So why is Jericho so taken with the male, when he has only ever felt desire for a female?
And why, when they rescue an annoying, sexy cat shifter from certain death, do his instincts scream at him to claim both the feline female and the demon as his own? Bears don’t mate outside their species, yet everything inside Jericho pushes him to do just that. A cat, a demon and a bear. Oh my.

I do not care what others opinions of this series is because it would not deter my opinion of the series, which is that I really love it. And his book in the series is no different. I loved it too.
This book did not let me down as in following the others in the series with having so much action, steamy comings together, one or more mate fighting against their destiny because they think they no better, and last but not least,,,,, love.
Jericho is bored with all the peace that has happened since the previous matings of his clan. He misses the adventures, fighting, and heart pounding thrill but one has to be careful what they wish for because sometimes those wishes can come true by ten fold and then all he\\ will break lose.
Jericho never expected to find his mates while searching for a killer and he definitely did not expect it to be a man and he definitely did not expect to have a second mate that was a woman also. Best of both worlds for him in my opinion.
But more is at play then there mating and they have to trust one another to defeat the evil that is out for them and their clans.
This book is packed full of adventure while they all search for the evil that plagues them. It is so much fun to see what Jericho, Seino, and Anya get up too. It is also nice being able to get glimpses of all the previous people from the books before this one. I really believe that Marie Harte has a knack for putting together a great book full of supernatural paranormal people with adventures that rival the best of love stories. I can not wait to see what Marie Harte comes up with next.
This book was great and I loved how the author put a cat, demon and bear together that was absolutely amazing. I love most shifter books and the author was able to put this one in my favorite column. I mean when you can have a group of shifters that share everything (and I mean everything) and an author that really knows just what to write, what more can you want. This book was clearly a mix of super-hot shifters and demons. I loved how the author was able to build a domain of exciting characters and they definitely have a lot of really hot sex. This was a fun and exciting read and I hope to see more of this series.
