Zookeeper Skyler Ashcraft prefers scorpions to skirts, but flirting with the feral gains new meaning when she unwittingly drugs a feline shape shifter. The same rules should have applied: Approach with caution and the near-impossible keep your hands to yourself.
Bastian is uniquely dangerous among the Ailuro, a people capable of much more than shape shifting. The way his anger psychically endangers others earned him exile, as self-imposed as mandated. It’s the reason he should leave Sky alone. If only it was that simple.
When the predator becomes prey, the hunt is on. If it’s truly survival of the fittest, they can’t hope to win.
The zoo’s primary rule of expect the unexpected hardly prepared Sky for this, and in the end, they find there are worse things to lose than your life, and nothing they won’t risk for love.
First thoughts after…
I give 9th Life….
Oh my! I can't wait for The Forgotten!
How distracted did I get?9th life is a roller coaster of emotions. I thoroughly enjoyed this story from the beginning. Sky's love for animals and being zookeeper is fascinating. I love her boyfriend Atari. Who wouldn't fall for an owl that loves to run his talons through a girls hair? Bastian, had me enraptured the moments he entered the story. Though confusing at times he had me wrapped around his little finger. (What man isn't confusing?) The connection between Sky and Bastian is undeniable. If you're looking for an addictive sweet new adult paranormal romance I highly recommend this one!

Nothing in Sky’s life looks the same since she met Bastian-exiled Ailuro, love of her life, and his own worst enemy. The revelations of the last few days, days that saw the end of Bastian’s ninth life, what should have been his last, have rendered her life unrecognizable-but survivable.
Bastian can’t claim the same.
He only lives with his sins in the hope of keeping Sky out of Maarjaaran hands. His hope lies in hers. And she’ll do anything to save him. Unfortunately, the only thing that might work demands far more from her than simply giving in to the Maarjaaran marks.

You’ll be the death of him.
Word of the Kayaditi has spread, and it seems everyone wants a piece of her. Sky longs to change the Maarjaara, to be free of their expectations. But when she slips down a path that Bastian can’t follow, she’ll find the treacherous climb back is littered with unimaginable truths and unacceptable solutions.
Zookeeper-turned-author Wendy Beck is more accustomed to wrestling gators than grammar. She has a conservation biology degree from Oglethorpe University and learned a whole lot of hands-on studying killer whales in Puget Sound, loggerhead sea turtles on Cumberland Island, and everything else at Noah’s Ark in Locust Grove. She went on to serve as the animal caretaker for Bear Hollow Wildlife Trail in Athens for four years before moving back to the Atlanta area to care for the wildest animal of all—her son.
She lives with the love of her life and personal hero, Mike, and can be found reading, writing, practicing kriya yoga, or creating whimsy out of fondant… out of the Lego collection… or sometimes out of both.
Member of the RWA and serves as Membership Chair of the Georgia Romance Writers
