An exciting new series from USA Today Bestselling author Charlene Hartnady
The Feral. Self-appointed rulers of all. Strong. Majestic. The most badass of all the species, and yet, the most vulnerable.
Their own females died many moons ago from the dreaded clutch sickness. Desperate and desolate, they watch as the other shifters take human females as mates. They are breeding successfully with them too.
Surely if the others can do it, they can too? They must if they are to survive. Human females are afraid of them, not interested in the least.
It is clear that The Feral must first learn the ways of the humans. The problem is that they have kept to themselves for too long. They don’t have the slightest clue where to start.
Several keythong are appointed to infiltrate human society. To learn what they can. These particular males are some of those who lost their mates. They are therefore destined to spend the rest of their days alone. Females no longer tempt them, which makes them perfect for this mission. As long as they stick to the plan and the job at hand, what can go wrong?
Talon arrives in the big city. It’s bright, loud and packed with humans. By scale and by feather, he has no idea where to start. The future of his species rests firmly on his shoulders. Clueless, he enlists the services of a Love Doctor who promises to teach him everything he needs to know about the opposite sex.
Vicky is desperate. Ever since her husband ran off with another woman, her business has been in the toilet. Who wants to take advice on love from someone who couldn’t keep her own husband happy? No one, that’s who. At least, no one in their right mind. On the verge of bankruptcy, a very gorgeous, nut-job of a guy walks through her door. He claims not to be human. Yeah right! Her first instinct is to kick him out. Then he hands her a suitcase full of money. Cash - and lots of it. How can she refuse to teach him everything she knows about women, about love? She can’t, that’s how.
The female laughs at him when he tells her who he is and why he is there. It takes some convincing to get her to agree to help him. She proves to be highly knowledgeable and skilled in the ways of human females. His mate has long since died and yet he is tied to her as if she were flesh and blood. His heart, his body, and his soul belong only to her. Why then does this tiny human doctor tempt him so? How is it that his hunger has reawakened? This has never happened before in the history of The Feral. It is wrong, and he must fight against it with every fiber of his being.
