It's a predator eat predator world for the Were-Hunters. Danger haunts any given day. There is no one to trust. No one to love. Not if they want to live…
An orphan with no clan that will claim him, Wren Tigarian grew to adulthood under the close scrutiny and mistrust of those around him. A forbidden blend of two animals—snow leopard and white tiger—Wren has never listened to anyone when there was something he wanted. Now he wants Marguerite.
Marguerite D'Aubert Goudeau is the daughter of a prominent U.S. Senator who hates the socialite life she's forced to live. Like her mother before her, she has strong Cajun roots that her father doesn't understand. Still, she has no choice but to try and conform to a world where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and powerful humans is never to meet the world of the Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen, unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a wrath of the highest order.
In order to have Marguerite, Wren must fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal nature, but the Were-Hunters who want him dead for endangering their world. It's a race against time and magic without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not just their lives, but their very souls…

My Review: 
As always, Sherrilyn Kenyon delivered a fast-paced packed with action thriller. I've followed this series for quite a while and I loved this one, though I was a little disappointed that there was no 'save the world' pressure like in her previous books. This one was good, of course, but I expected a little bit more. Not just from the plot but from the characters as well.
Wren, being a freak among his kind has always been alone and very aggressive after what happened to him when he was a cub. All that he went through made it impossible for him to trust anyone because 'friends' were only people with a VIP pass to 'screw you over' at the first chance they got. That is, until he meets Marguerite Goudeau and all bets are off. 
They fell in love pretty quickly but it was still sweet to read on as Maggie, as she preferred to be called, tamed the beast inside of Wren, who everyone though was going mad due to his aggressiveness, which is how everything exploded. 
Maman, the Katagari owner of Sanctuary where Wren has lived for the past twenty something years want Wren out of her hair because of the threat he poses for their kind if he decided to go all crazy on them and expose them. So when the opportunity presents she declares against him and he gets a death sentence.
Maggie accepted things too easily and some MAJOR stuff that happened shouldn't have been taken so lightly like, let's say, your boyfriend drops by in tiger form, among other things, of course. The Sex scenes were fairly sizzling but not disgusting that made you feel like you were reading porn or something. They merely showed off the love and 'need' that Maggie and Wren had for each other. Although, I felt like she jumped too quickly into a bed with him. I mean, she barely knew the guy and next thing you know she's having sex with him.
Still, I loved the book and the fact that other characters from past books appeared here. It's always good to see new faces too and overall, this couldn't have been any better.
