Anita Bennett is lost in her beloved
Rocky Mountains, this has never happened to her before. A
head injury after a fall has left Anita confused and wandering
without direction through the wilderness. For years she has
been coming to these mountains where she feels most at home,
but Anita recognizes things have become desperate after days
with no food or water.
Part man, part jaguar, Rakahnja prefers
to spend his time in cat form with all his senses sharpened
and alert. Rakahnja knows Anita’s scent from the many times
he watched over her campsite, yet he has never approached
Anita before now, he must find a way to lead her to safety, he
speaks to her mind, and even in a confused state, Anita feels
a connection, and follows Rakahnja to his cave without fear.
When Anita develops a fever, Rakahnja has no choice but to
shift into man form and carry Anita to the nearest hospital.
Days later, upon being released from the hospital, Anita is
determined to find Rakahnja again. He refuses to give in to
Anita even though he knows she is his mate, Anita is too
stubborn to leave, and makes herself at home in Rakahnja’s
Rakahnja’s Haven is a
soulful romance that pulls at the heartstrings. Anita is
alone, and fears she will never fit in anywhere or have any
true ties. Rakahnja has consigned himself to a life of
solitude, rather than face rejection, his parent’s sufferings
in the past is still a constant reminder of how cruel life can
be. Nicole Austin has the talent to engage all your emotions
into the character’s dilemmas, their sensuous intimate
encounters, and the urge to cheer for the good guys. This is
a fantastic story that I enjoyed enormously.
