Resistance may be possible, but who are they kidding?
While on a search and rescue mission in the middle of a snowstorm, Seth and his twin Trent catch the scent of an unfamiliar shifter. Drawn to locate the source they hike deep into the woods to an abandoned cabin where they find an enticing little jaguar in the throes of heat.
Tired of being smothered by her five brothers and the pressure to mate, Daisy wanted nothing more than a week alone in the middle of freaking no where. The last thing she needed was a run in with two sexy as sin—and totally off limits—cougar shifters. Unfortunately, she's not the kind of woman to leave them out in the cold.
Faced with the misery of unmet sexual desire or hot, no strings attached sex with two men... What's a girl to do?
Frost Bitten is a steamy little read.
I liked the character of Daisy, who is a jaguar shifter but she's also a game warden, a profession held primarily by men and she's no stranger to having to prove her worth in that area of her life. But she's being pressured by her brothers to find a mate and start a family. She decides to just escape to the mountains for a week long rest, though she's in heat and with each subsequent season without bonding, her pain increases.
Then you have Seth and his twin Trent, cougar shifters, and search and rescue workers who were hunting for a missing skier on the mountain. When the skier is found on another section of the mountain, Trent wants to head home but Seth knows there is someone else up there as they'd been following the scent throughout their search. But they know that with the snowstorm that's coming they need to find shelter and Seth knows of an abandoned cabin nearby ... or so he thought it was abandoned.
I have to say that I particularly liked Seth, out of the two brothers, more. Maybe because he's the alpha, I'm not sure. Though they both want to help Daisy with her suffering ... and not just by having sex with her, Seth refuses to act on his instincts without her permission. He was very caring and considerate toward Daisy but at the same time could be seductively persuasive when he knew what she wanted. ;)
About my only complaint is that I really wish that the story had been longer. Or that I could have gotten to know the characters a little more. In Daisy's case, she has an interesting past that you get to hear a little bit about but I would have loved more. Who knows, maybe there is more coming in another book that I'm just not aware of yet. In any case, I look forward to reading more from Eliza Gayle!
