JAG team investigators Huntley Anderson and Melissa Overton are two dedicated special forces jaguar shifter agents tracking an
elusive poacher of big cats who's been slipping past agents with astute regularity. This time they mean to get him. Unfortunately it seems that this time Jackson has captured a mated pair of shifter jaguars. Not only that, Huntley and Melissa find themselves suddenly having to bone up on their non existent parenting skills when their investigations come to include the couple's shifter cubs.
It's not just the shifter cubs that bring them together though, the attraction between Huntley and Melissa is undeniable. 'Smoking hot' might be more apt. Between that, searching for the poacher, and looking after the cubs, Huntley and Melissa have their hands full.
The dialogue between Melissa and Huntley can be stilted. I liked them as characters but at times their conversation and inner reflections feel flat. They deserved to be so much more. Spear's writing here just doesn't match the depth and flow that I really enjoy in her wolf series.
I do like the clever title. 'Pride' in more ways than one!
Despite my reservations I still had to read on to see how all was resolved.
