Falke's Captive by Madison Layle and Anna Leigh Keaton

A graduate student working in animal genetics, Beth Coldwell is in town to track and tag big cats in the wild. Her prospects for the summer only improve when she meets Kelan and Reidar Falke and decides the sexy brothers are the right pair to fulfill her other, less than scientific, desires...

But her research is a threat to the Falke family secret. When Kelan, in cougar form, is captured, that secret comes closer than ever to being revealed. He escapes, but not before Beth draws a blood sample, and analysis shows this is no ordinary mountain lion.

Kelan and Reidar cannot deny the powerful attraction they feel toward Beth. She might just be their destined mate. But if they reveal themselves to her, will she embrace who they are or see them as just another science experiment?

Reviewer: Fashionta
Beth Coldwell loves all big cats and wants to make a difference by helping them. So when she's offered to take part in tracking and tagging pumas in the wild she jumps at the opportunity. The night she arrives in the small town she'll be living in, Beth meets Kelan and Reidar Falke who seem to be just the right men to fulfill her other desires, sexual ones.

Her first day at work she is excited to catch a puma - she has no idea it is Kelan in his animal form. Kelan escapes but not before Beth manages to take a blood sample from him and the DNA analysis shows he's not a common mountain lion. After all the brothers' attempts to retrieve the sample fail, they come clean and let Beth decide what's more precious to her - fame or the men she's grown attracted to. None of them realizes there are other forces who are willing to kill in order to discover the secrets of Kelan's blood.

I adore paranormal stuff, especially the shapeshifter stories. I was sure I would love this book and so I did! Kelan and Reidar are great guys, so alike and yet so different. While Reidar is ready to admit he's found his mate, Kelan tries to deny it which gives necessary depth to the menage plot. The character of Beth, so serene and yet so passionate, is very appealing too, she really looks like the perfect match for her pumas.

I give this highly entertaining story 4/5 stars and I strongly recommend it. The book is so good you can’t put it down until you finish it.
