Sage Primrose dreams of the day she meets the man who will sweep her off her feet. She didn't expect him to abduct her while she wore nothing but a towel. Why did bad men have to look oh, so good?

Feral Kincaid will do anything to protect his family. When a human female supposedly kidnaps his niece, he goes to get her, claws blazing. But the abductor turns into the abductee and suddenly he has to figure out how to apologize to the one woman he needs to forgive him: his mate.

This tiger isn't used to romance in his life; he's too busy protecting his pride from a rival determined to take his land. But Feral would gladly take on bad guys instead of trying to figure out how to romance a human female. Sage needs to watch out. Feral is hellbent on romance and his target is her.

Losing her temper was the best thing to happen Sage all day. The guy she hiked with was a condescending judgemental bastard who deserved every bit of her anger. Once he disappeared, coward, and left her to her own devices with a young tiger shifter, the day looked infinitely better.

Until it wasn't.

The shifter, a girl named Ramsey, was lost. Sage isn't heartless or unfeeling or discriminatory. She saw a child who needed help and helped her. She took Ramsey back to her hotel, contacted the girl's mother, and arranged to bring her home. But the man who was supposed to watch Ramsey, Feral, was already on his way to the hotel, unbeknownst to Sage.

Feral is fiercely protective of his family. He's a Do First, Ask Questions Later man. So when he found out where Ramsey was, he hightailed it to the hotel to save her and mete out punishment on the person who took his beloved niece. The woman he finds appeals to his tiger but he pointedly ignores the beast and does to her what he believes she's done to Ramsey: he kidnaps her.

From there, it's a matter of righting a wrong and clearing the air between them. Feral is, adorably, out of practice when it comes to wooing the one woman meant to be his. Google is no help. Neither are his friends. He bumbles along in his attempts to get to know Sage and prove he's not the monster he initially made himself out to be. Somewhere along the way, between Get To Know You conversations and sweet touches, that mistake is forgiven. The wall between them disappears. There is freedom in exploring one another now, anticipation for what builds between them, eagerness for what lies ahead of them.

This is a fast-paced, surprisingly sweet with heat story that I enjoyed from beginning to end. Feral had his work cut out for him. A little bit of patience on Sage's end and persistence from his gave them a lifelong happy ending they deserved.
