A PSY-CHANGELING NOVELLA BY THE AUTHOR OF SHARDS OF HOPE AND SHIELD OF WINTER... "THE ALPHA AUTHOR OF PARANORMAL ROMANCE" (Booklist) New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her phenomenal Psy-Changeling world as a woman in peril finds herself in the arms of a dangerously beautiful shapeshifter... San Francisco is under threat from a violent gang...a gang that has no idea who they're challenging. The DarkRiver pack of leopard changelings has already claimed the city as their territory, and they will fight with wild fury to protect its residents. Emmett, a lethally trained leopard soldier, isn't about to let outsiders muscle in on his home ground—especially when they target a human named Ria. Emmett has one word for the smart stranger with her curvy body and tough spirit: mine. Possessive, dominant, unyielding in his demands and desires, Emmett is unlike anyone Ria has ever before met. But while the sexy leopard changeling makes her body ignite, his kisses molten and his touch addicting, she's no pushover and she has a few demands of her own. This leopard has met his match...
