"Hot loving and fast-paced suspense"

Zoe has fled to the small town of Serenity to escape a two- timing creep and make a new life for herself and the twins she's expecting (courtesy of her ex). Her neighbors, the gorgeous Conn and Marcel, have certainly caught her eye, but she knows they could never be interested in a struggling mother-to-be. Little does she know that both those sweet and sexy guys are tiger shape shifters who've been waiting to find their perfect mate...Zoe. Unfortunately, explaining how they feel—and what they are—is the least of their problems. Because it seems Zoe's ex wants her back, and he's not going to take "no" for an answer.

This is a romantic paranormal with plenty of heat, and a good dose of suspense. I love big, strong alphas who know how to be tender and gentle as well as forceful, and this story has two excellent examples. Conn and Marcel are passionate, but careful not to overwhelm Zoe. They're protective, but not pushy. Zoe, on the other hand, does her best to be independent, but she's smart enough to take help when she really needs it, and sensible about what's best for her babies. I just love a guy who loves children, and again, this book has not one, but two!

Ms. Leigh gives enough background to provide essential information, but she keeps the pacing and action tight. Her heroine is bright and tough, but able to bend. Her heroes are strong, fierce, and devoted, but respectful and never smothering. She also gives us just a little bit of gentle humor for a little lighter touch. This story was a joy from start to finish, and I look forward to more tales from the little town of Serenity , New York.

Zoe Daniels moved to the city, anxious to pursue her career and perhaps find a man to love her for who she is. When she finds out that her lover, the man she thought she'd spend the rest of her life with, is already married she leaves him and the city far behind. But she doesn't leave alone--she's pregnant with her ex's child.

Enthralled with the quiet beauty that moved in across the hall from them, best friends Marcel Carson and Conn Brady watch her from afar. Both males want her for their mate and are just biding their time to make her their own. When her ex shows up in town, they know they can't afford to wait any longer to claim her as their mate.

Will she listen to them when they tell her that not only are they shifters, but they want to claim her as their mate or will her fear that she's making another mistake getting involved with them blind her to the danger they believe her ex has in store for her?
