Two years ago, General Micah Andrews denied the mating pull he felt for Zach Tyler and walked away. Since then, Micah has been doing his job, but his heart has not been in it. When told he could be dead in six months, he knows it’s time to leave the military and find the man who has never been far from his thoughts.

Zach Tyler spent two long, lonely years wandering the team lands in his white tiger form. But when Micah shows up in Paladin, Zach returns to his human form to focus on healing his sick mate in the hopes he will not walk away again.

Can Zach forgive his gun-shy mate for denying their mating for so long? Can Micah learn to relax? Will the men be able to put the past to rest in order to look ahead to their future together? Or will the white tiger lose his mate in the end?


Book Review

Much to my surprise ‘Cajun Thunder’ wasn’t the end of this series although it has been a while between releases. Regardless, I was looking forward to catching up with the Marines, their mates, and a baby girl in Paladin, Montana. Not to mention I was ecstatic that the author wrote a story involving General Micah Andrews the man responsible for this Special Forces team’s medical discharges from the military – the man who has helped them more than once.

“Micah only hoped Sergeant Zachary Tyler would not reject him because it had taken him so long to get his head out of his ass and admit that he needed what the shapeshifter had offered him on the sidewalk outside the rehabilitation center. He needed the home and connection to another human being that being Zach’s mate promised.”

It was no surprise to me that Micah was suffering from migraine headaches, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and all the other health problems that accompany a high stress job at the Pentagon. What was surprising was his willingness to finally listen to his body (and his doctor), complete and submit his retirement papers, and begin his leave immediately with the first order of business being heading straight to Paladin, Montana and his mate.

Poor Zach. Ever since Micah rejected him he has lived in the woods on the property the team bought, existing as his white tiger and hoping that Micah would come back to him. When Micah does return, Zach isn’t even sure if it’s for their mating or not, and I hated that he had been made to feel so insecure these past years. Things are a little rocky in the beginning and both men have to learn to communicate and compromise.

This was a good addition to the series and a wonderful happy ever after for an exhausted three star general and his white tiger mate. It was nice to see everyone again and know that life is working out well for the entire team and their mates.
