As a dedicated covert ops agent, Victoria Morgan follows two rules: accomplish the mission and protect the innocent. When bitten by a werecat—yeah, that was a sucky day—she must investigate beings that shouldn't exist and are hard as hell to identify. Just how can she tell if a person is human--or an animal-shifter who enjoys Bambi-sized snacks?
During her investigation, she finds a real home and friends for the first time. Sweet, right? But there's a flip-side: the bad guys are waiting for her to turn into something four-legged with a tail, the shifters suspect her of spying, and she has fallen in love with a pair of Thumper-eating werecougar brothers.
Her duty is to expose their existence. Or she could follow her heart and protect them with all of her deadly skills.

Wow this was such a great read. Vicki is a Marine and boy is she tough. However when Lachlan dies in her arms you can really feel her pain. She does know that he has given her the Death Gift. all she knows is that he is a shifter and he has asked her to go to his Grandfather. So she sets out to do just that.
Upon arriving in Cold Creek she meets Alec, the hot sheriff, who catches her trying to break into the house she is renting. Alec immediately is attracted to Vicki but she is human which means she is off limits. She then meets Alec’s brother (and litter-mate), Calum, after saving his daughter Jamie, who owns a bar in town and also his attracted to her. Again the human thing is an issue. Neither brother can understand there attraction to Vicki and she doesn’t know she is right in the middle of the shifters she is looking for.
The journey these three take to discovering that Vicki is a shifter and that they are lifemates is one full of unexpected twists and turns. Calum as the leader of the territory they live in and Alec as not only the sheriff but also a cahir (warrior) means that they need a strong woman and Vicki is that woman. Even if she isn’t sure she wants to accept being a shifter.
This was the perfect read and I loved every second of the journey. There were a few tears but in the end I couldn’t have been happier with the way things turned out. Although I will say there was moment when I wasn’t sure about Alec. He was the fun, sweet guy yet when he thinks Vicki has betrayed them he is super angry and hurt. Calum becomes the more rational brother then. Where as before Calum was always so serious and in charge. All of the characters were so beleivable that you find yourself forgetting they are shifters. Oh and Vicki’s first Gathering was HOT!
