(The first book in the Beast's Mate Shifter Suspense series)
A novel by Tawny Taylor
Mark of the Beast City girl Abby Clumm wouldn't normally travel to remote cabins in Alaska alone. But expecting her Survivor-type friend to be arriving shortly, she reluctantly makes the journey to their rented cottage solo. She finds herself alone in the boonies, a shotgun she doesn't know how to use and a failing wooden door the only things standing between her and a very hungry animal outside. Research scientist Tarik Evert has no idea what's wrong. He's suddenly driven by a need so urgent it's painful. The scent of a woman nearby beckons him, sends him staggering outside into the cold. And then somehow he's at her door, naked and shivering, not sure what just happened...or what is about to happen if she lets him inside. He only knows one thing - the hunger that brought him to her in the first place. Touch of the Beast Katie Spenser is looking forwrd to some R & R with her best friend Abby when she makes the loooong trip from Chicago to Alaska. Unfortunately, rest and relaxation are not what she gets. A missing best friend. Men who turn into bears. Bad guys shooting guns. The only part of Katie's so-called vacation that's pleasant is Raul Zant. She simply cannot resist a guy so sexually dominant that a mere glance produces delightful tingles and quivers of anticipation. And the sex...Two words. Mind. Blowing. The trick will be staying alive to enjoy it.
