Blurb: Colt Easton is easygoing, fun-loving, good with little kids…and he occasionally turns into a beast capable of ripping out a man’s throat. It’s a family secret he’d be more than happy to keep—if there wasn’t a little boy’s life at stake.
A deathbed confession revealed the child could carry Easton blood. The only way Colt can monitor the boy is with a job at his day-care center. The problem? New laws decree that all shifters be tagged. No blood test, no job.
Dr. Jasper Glen is instantly drawn to the outgoing Colt and is certain any child would be safe in the handsome shifter’s care. He ought to know—he’s been studying shifters for years, even invented the blood test that now, to his shame, the government is using against them.
All it takes is a quick vial switch. Except Jasper’s good deed blows the lid off a secret he didn’t even know he was keeping. And triggers a chain of events that makes them all moving targets

Review: This is one amazing story. It is book two in this series and they should be read in order.

I have read many paranormal stories, but this story takes the cake. I have never even heard of their kind of shifters Colt is so sweet and loving plus he is excellent with kids, but his is also a varelse. This means he is a killing machine, or at least that is what he is supposed to be like. That is what I suppose happens when someone puts a label on a person. He wants a job at a day care center, but since the government wanted to keep track of shifters, he figured his chances were not good. He just wanted to take the job so that he could get to know if one of the children was his nephew. To see if the parents were taking good care of the child. So when the day care sent him in to get blood work he knew his odds were bad. What he had not expected was Dr. Jasper Glen.

Glen has always wanted to know everything there was to know about shifters. He had started out as a vet, but then he switched to taking blood from people. He just wanted to find out how to help them, without getting himself into trouble. So when Colt comes in to get his blood taken, Glen is taken back by how accepting Colt is. He offers to help Glen with his research. He also knew that Colt just plain wanted him. He had trouble admitting it, but he wanted Colt too.

The surprise came when he took his own blood and found out that he might be his own personal lab rat. He had shifter blood and it was getting stronger as the days go on by. So were his feelings for Colt. The government was showing up more and more, so when someone demanded him to turn in the nearly extinct raptor he knew he had to destroy it all. Even his own personal notes. All he knew was he had to figure out how to keep him and Colt safe.

This story has a distinct new feeling to me. I really need to go check out this amazing author. I can say this: I will be getting the next book to this series. It was a great book with wonderful characters and I loved the new paranormal world that it has. Although it does show how prejudice works double time. It also shows you how humans fear what they don’t know nor understand. I would definitely be recommending this book. If you love the paranormal worlds, shape-shifters, danger and excitement not to mention to sexy men then this is the books to get.
