When Dr. Cameron Dalton agrees to treat an entire pack of shifters dying from a form of parvo, he has no idea that he'll be getting more than he bargained for. He definitely doesn't expect to be peed on by an adorable golden retriever puppy upon arrival. A bit stunned, Cameron can't believe the sexy little man is his mate.

Quaid Sedgwick is excited to see that his best friend, Toby, has returned. But when he catches the most delicious smell and follows it to an equally delicious-looking man, instinct kicks in, and Quaid pees on the man, claiming him as his mate.

Cameron comes to learn Quaid is hiding something from him, and he suspects the worst. But is he jumping to conclusions, or is Quaid just not the mate Cameron was led to believe?

As soon as I finished reading this story, I just wanted to turn back to page one and start all over again. While the story may have been over, I was not ready to leave these mesmerizing characters.

Reading Quaid’s background almost brought me to tears. Not only was his story tragic but the author had me so emotionally attached to his character I felt as if he was a real friend of mind instead of just a character in a story. Then when Cameron failed to recognize what Quaid needed I was as infuriated as the secondary characters within this story. Luckily for Cameron he and Quaid were able to work out their problems and have their happily ever after, because if not I was jumping in the story and smacking him on the back of his head.

This does not mean that I did not like Cameron’s character. I had to learn why he reacted the way he did to situations, which really explained a lot. I was happy the author gave me the information needed to enjoy his character as much as Quaid's. No relationship is perfect, no man or woman is perfect, and we get to see this in Cameron. It made is character more believable and drew me even deeper within the story.

I did not have the privilege of reading the first installment of this series, but after getting introduced to the characters of the first story I immediately added it to my must read list. While I felt the biggest connection to the main characters, the supporting characters were just as entertaining. Little things like Toby slapping Carmeron made me get to know the supporting characters and anticipate their involvement within the storyline.

The relationship development within this story was consistent and entertaining. I was drawn into the relationship from page one and never felt detached. The antagonistic conflict within this story also added an extra bonus. I would have liked to see a little more of a dramatic climax in the antagonistic conflict. It seemed to have been solved a little too easily for me. This antagonistic conflict is also, why I labeled this a forced seduction. While the sexual act was not completed the antagonists did try to force themselves on one of the main characters, and it is mentioned that they have done so in the characters past. Even so, I still thoroughly enjoyed this story and would read it again, and recommend it to everyone I know who reads erotica.
