The peaceful town of Madden, Maine
harbors an enormous secret. Within the human population are
immigrants from Lorzneca, Russia, some born in the U.S.,
many of them having arrived within the last decade or so and
all capable of shifting into very large feline predators,
Neva Kolenkov lives in town with the
Turgenevís, Nadia, Mikhail and their son Luca. Both Neva
and Nadia suffered horrible atrocities back in Lorzneca at
the hands of Bartok and his soldiers. Nadia has managed to
move on but Neva is merely a shadow existing but not really
living, unable to go forward and live.
Everyday Isaac Stahl hopes Neva will
come into his coffee shop. Isaac wants Neva for his mate
and mother to his cubs even after learning why she acts so
frightened all the time. When a waitress at the coffee shop
is murdered Isaac puts himself in a position to protect his
woman while at the same time he attempts to slowly seduce
Neva. A horrible tragedy gives Isaac the opportunity to win
the woman he loves and teach her to be the woman she was
always meant to be.
Submissive by author
Isabella Jordan is a charming and very sexy stand alone
story, second in the Leopard Tails series. Also,
Submissive is a special paranormal in that it
deals with a womanís personal horror in a sensitive manner
as Neva learns to live, lust and love because of the man who
has the patience, friendship and tenderness to bring her out
of herself. The killer is part of a secondary plotline used
to bring them together although definitely the weaker part
of the story. Isaac teaches Neva that sex and lovemaking
can be completely different things as well.
Submissive is a sweet and sexy little gem.
