In his position as tracker for the SnowDancer pack, it's up to Drew Kincaid to rein in rogue changelings who have lost control of their animal halves—even if it means killing those who have gone too far. But nothing in his life has prepared him for the battle he must now wage to win the heart of a woman who makes his body ignite . . . and who threatens to enslave his wolf.

Lieutenant Indigo Riviere doesn't easily allow skin privileges, especially of the sensual kind—and the last person she expects to find herself craving is the most wickedly playful male in the den. Everything she knows tells her to pull back before the flames burn them both to ash . . . but she hasn't counted on Drew's will.

Now, two of SnowDancer's most stubborn wolves find themselves playing a hot, sexy game even as lethal danger stalks the very place they call home.

I was going to take a break from the series but then I realized this was going to be a changeling/changeling romance. We've had a lot of Psy woman being the stars so this was a nice switch-up. However, do not skip to need to read the other books to fully grasp these characters and world situations. 

Here we follow Drew and Indigo. Drew is the tracker for the SnowDancer pack. It's up to Drew to rein in rogue changelings who have lost control of their animal halves. Indigo is a lieutenant of the pack. She doesn't easily allow people to get close to her and skin privileges? That is rare thing. They both want each other but they are the most stubborn wolves in the pack. At the same time they are playing games with each other, there is a lethal danger around the corner. 

This was a nice change-up (as I mentioned) with two changelings. I adored Drew and Indigo. So full of lust and love for each other, but so dang stubborn!!! It takes a lot for them to fully admit they love each other. It was worth it for sure. HOWEVER, Indigo did get a hair too "I'm a tough woman! You are dumb male! Grrrr." Chill lady. Drew is a dang sweetie!!!!

Outside of the romance, the Psy world is really crumbling and the tension is building and building. I was hoping to see more conflicts happen here...the build-up is crazy.....but it took forever for any sort of shoe to fall. Hopefully the next book something BIG happens. It's coming and I'm over here anxious. Don't get me wrong, some things happened at the end....but we are waiting for more. 

All-in-all, I really did enjoy this. It was a nice fresh breathe of air. It took a while for things to happen in the romance part and the story part, but I enjoyed the build-up. I'm super curious to see what is going to happen next. I may have to move that book up on my TR list. I'll stamp this with 4 stars. 

ONE WORD SUMMARY: Tension-filled

The Changeling-Changeling matches are my favorites. Too bad there aren't very many.
