#BookReview – “In Plain Sight” by Marie Harte

Book Review graphic

Blurb

In a choice between fight or flight, love makes the final decision.

Cullen Whitefeather is Ac-taw—a fierce golden eagle shapeshifter. The ultimate predator, he doesn’t shy away from confrontation…unless it involves one tempting, smart-mouthed woman. The woman destined to be his mate. The woman who doesn’t even know he’s alive.

Sarah Duncan made one mistake years ago and hasn’t stopped paying for it since. Tired of the town’s treatment, she finally tells the truth about what really happened and pays a hard price. Her clan wants to silence her. Permanently.

Rescue comes from a completely unexpected source—Cullen, a man who can barely seem to string two sentences together. Yet his fierce protectiveness, compassion, and bewitching touch are worth more than a thousand words.

With Sarah so close, Cullen is losing his mind—and his heart. She says she wants to leave, and the raptors want her gone. But if there’s one thing Cullen’s good at, it’s a fight. And he’s not letting her go without one.

Review

In the second book in the Cougar Falls series, eagle shapeshifter Sarah Duncan finally stands up for herself. After years of being considered the “town slut” and having the leaders of her raptor clan harass her, she decides to leave Cougar Falls once and for all. Unfortunately, a group of female raptors attack Sarah with the intent on killing her before she can leave.

Cullen Whitefeather has been secretly in love with Sarah since he first saw her and never knew about the rumors surrounding her past. He saves her life and takes her home with him, and his wildest fantasies soon come true.

I really liked both Sarah and Cullen. Friendship bloomed fast between them, and romance soon followed. Though Sarah never deserved the scorn she’d dealt with, it made her strong and smart. Cullen was so shy and patient with her, definitely a dreamy hero. His brothers and mother were awesome characters too.

The numerous sex scenes slowed the pacing a little, but I enjoyed the story and want to read more in the series.
