Emmie’s mother warned her to stay away
from male shifters. They leave you high and dry after a
steamy ride between the sheets. The last thing Emmie wants
is a broken heart, or worse, to be left alone to raise a
child by herself. The surest way to appease her heat cycle
is to escape into the city where she can seduce human males,
thereby taking the edge off her body’s hunger. The urban
bars are the perfect hunting ground for willing victims
until she captures the attention of a male shifter.
Theron Graves is a bounty hunter who
stumbles on Emmie’s scent when she’s out cruising. One
whiff and he decides to track her down. His instincts will
not let the matter rest until he claims her. Soon after,
Theron cannot keep from rushing into emotions and needs
associated with wanting to keep Emmie all to himself, and
not just for a night or two.
Will Emmie take a chance despite her
mother’s words by giving into her need for Theron? Or will
distrust and local rivals come crashing in to ruin what
could turn into something more than a passing possibility or
Scratching Post struts
its stuff with well defined characters and a rock-solid
plot. Ms. Pray drives the story at the right pace, which
gives you time to relate to Emmie and Theron.
Scratching Post scores high by expressing concerns
in male/female relationships and what makes this feline pair
both human and “other”. Falling in love can bring out
anyone’s doubts and insecurities. While Emmie and Theron
are at the top of the food chain, they still manage to
become casualties of passion when love turns predatory.
