Blurb: Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between him and the future he craves with her.
Just days from the night he will finally be free to be with the low-ranking beauty who stole his heart, she walks back into his life and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked towards in the five long years they’ve been apart.
Eloise has traveled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams.
Will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?
Review: As much as I love this series, this book was not a favorite of mine. I think Cavanaugh was great but I had trouble connecting with Eloise. The commitment that Cavanaugh put into being with Eloise has to be commended, to leave your mate for years just to get around the rules of your pride had to be hard to live with daily. Counting down the days and hours until he can travel back to his pride has kept him on edge for to long. Seeing Eloise walk back into his life early doesn't help his decision, or heart. Five long years he waited to make her his, can he make it a few more weeks without breaking all the rules.
