Summary (from Goodreads)
Emma Koons had been promised a spot in a Nevada ballet company, but after making a poor dating choice she’s out on her can, with no good work prospects. Now she dances in the Lollipop Lounge. It’s a far cry from ballet, but it keeps her body toned and ready for the day she might be able to audition again.
Quentin Armstrong is a loner mountain lion shifter with a yearning to be a part of something bigger. When the Fourniers call him for a favor, he accepts, hardly expecting to fall in love with the woman they send him to find. The last thing he wants to do is expose Emma to the dangers of his shifter world, but soon he finds himself fighting not only to keep her heart, but to save her life.
I love getting these to review. Reading them is a little like having a sneaky ice cream at the end of a long, hot, bothersome day. You just can’t fail to have a little smile on your face as you consume something both sweet and naughty.
That’s enough bad metaphors for one review.
Fierce Dancer takes us outside the immediate Fournier circle, once again widening the world, introducing us to other shifters, other aspects of their culture and adding a new layer of intrigue. It’s nice to get a throwback to the first book again, with an old friend of Hera’s stepping in to the leading lady role.
I liked Quentin as a leading man, but then I’m a total sucker for the ‘lone wolf seeks pack’ trope, so this was pushing my buttons in all the right sort of ways. Did I say no more bad metaphors in this review? I’m so sorry.
Overall, another great saucy read that has me looking forwards to getting my mitts on the next instalment!
