After Kate’s ex skips town, she’s forced to work off his debt.   When her boss decides to include a tiger and lion into her club act, Kate is thrown into a dangerous and humiliating situation with the two big cats.  Forced to take immediate action, Kate discovers that the two gorgeous men, Sergei and Silvair, she encounters are keeping secrets.

Feline Heat is gritty with a lot of heart.  Kate’s been through a truckload of hardship, and has the courage to continue fighting without succumbing to self-pity.  Sergei and Silvair have their own baggage, and what makes them perfect lovers and protectors is their resilience and encompassing strength of mind, body and character.  As with many of Madelaine Montague’s narratives, this story is a slice-of-life drama with all the highs, lows, and challenges that bring this trio together.  Aside from the fact that Sergei and Silvair are shape-shifting felines, they could fit into any plot with similar circumstances quite well.   Kate’s vulnerability brings out the best in them, and her willingness to sacrifice herself on their behalf takes everything full circle.

My only complaint about the story is Sergei’s and Silvair’s dialogue.  The author has them speaking English with very heavy Russian and German accents.  A little goes a long way, and by the end of the story, it was too much and downright irritating.   Ms. Montague delivers the toe-curling sex wherever and whenever it’s possible, and keeps the plot moving without slumps.   Despite the bad Schwarzenegger imitation, this story made the grade by more than an average curve.
