4 STARS: "The story continues the fight against the League organization, as two leopards from a visiting city hangs out in the Jargonian village for a while. Austin and Galatyn alphas, cousins, cops and Doms. They also have had a little bit of history with Gary the leader of the group that fights against the League (an organization hell bent on destroying all shifters). Nadine if we remember was mentioned in the previous story, this now is her story. Such a sweet girl wide eyed innocence, with a bit of a sad past. She works with her tramp of a cousin in a local bar that her Uncle owns. Nadine also spends some time at the one and only BDSM club in town, mind you she had never played only watched.

They seemed focused on her and when they make their way over to her … her body starts to tremble in more ways than one. The Leopards know they shouldn’t engage in playtime with such a innocent, for various reasons one mainly being they are just visiting. The other each of them has a little bit of a past. They are set on giving Nadine her play time and making it as memorable as they can. Will all three be able to leave their heart out of it? Will the ongoing danger of the league be a constant threat not only to each of the three but shifters in general.

I just love Tara Rose, her passion and insight into the BDSM lifestyle is seen in the way she writes. Awesome!! From explaining the safe words to checking the equipment to watching the sub for changes makes the book in-tuned with the lifestyle. The scenes were all hot and yummy... very twitch worthy. Tara does it again with book Three in this wonderful series... Enjoy!" -- Daria, RoomFan Reviews

But once the League is defeated, will they lose Nadine forever?" -- Kenna, Cocktails and Books
“I am proud of him and of what they do.” It was true, but being Gary Richardson’s granddaughter had its own disadvantages. For one thing, most unattached males in this damn village were wary of her. Either they stayed clear because they worked for Gary and he routinely told them he’d hand them their balls if they hurt her, or they avoided her because they didn’t work for him, and felt guilty about that. The rest of them chased after Kirsten who, despite being Gary’s granddaughter as well, embarrassed him daily by turning seducing men into a sport.
“We’re very grateful for their help,” said Austin. “But there’s still so much to do.”
“Are the two of you staying here to work for him?”
“Not in the field. We’re here right now more as consultants, and to represent the leopard villages in Arizona and New Mexico.”
“How intriguing. What do you both do at home, if you don’t mind my asking?”
Galatyn grinned, and Nadine had to blink a few times to clear her head. These two were so damn sexy she was surprised the air around them wasn’t glowing right now. Her face felt flushed and her pussy was now soaking wet. Images of being bent over the spanking bench in the Jargonian dungeon, with Austin and Galatyn both standing over her, dressed in leather and holding floggers, raced though her mind.
“We don’t mind your asking. But I hope your reaction is different than your cousin’s was when she asked.”
Nadine glanced around the room, but Kirsten was no longer in it. It was a big house. She didn’t want to dwell on where she might be right now, or with whom. “What did she say when you told her?”
“She was disappointed that we lead such ordinary lives.”
Nadine laughed. “She does have rather interesting priorities, doesn’t she?”
“That’s one word for it,” said Austin, in a tone that conveyed more disgust than amusement. Once again, Nadine resisted the urge to pump her fist in the air.
“We’re part of the police force in our village,” said Galatyn, “but we don’t patrol it or hand out traffic tickets. We work behind the scenes, ferreting out League members and others who would exploit our shape-shifting communities. Close to what Gary’s jaguars do, but more covert.”
“That sounds fascinating. How do you find all this information?”
“We’re computer geeks.”
“I see. The brains behind the brawn. I love it. Are you allowed to show me any of what you’re working on, or is it top secret?”
Galatyn’s eyes bored into hers, and it was all Nadine could do to keep breathing as he leaned closer. There were flecks of gold in his eyes that she hadn’t noticed before. “We can show you some of it, but then you’ll be sworn to secrecy.”
Austin leaned closer, too, and Nadine couldn’t tear her gaze away from his face. “And you’ll owe us something, of course, for taking you into our confidence.”
Nadine glanced around, but no one was close enough to hear them. “What will I owe you?” Whatever it was, she’d give it to them, no questions asked. Her face felt like it was on fire now. Images of being tied to the St. Andrew’s cross in the basement flashed through her mind. What did these two leopards look like underneath those pressed shirts and jeans?
And what difference would it make in the long run? They lived in Arizona and were leopards. No matter how much teasing and flirting they did, she knew it wouldn’t go anywhere. They’d return to their own village one day and she would go back to serving drinks to everyone in town.
“You mentioned that you haven’t played yet in the dungeon downstairs. We’d like to change that.”
Austin’s penetrating gaze held her trapped. She couldn’t have looked away if she’d wanted to. No jaguar man she’d ever met had this kind of mesmerizing power over her emotions. She should be afraid, but she wasn’t. She wanted to fall into the green and golden pool of light inside his eyes and never resurface. “All right.” Her voice came out breathy, as if she’d just run a few miles. Breathing was suddenly difficult.
“How about tomorrow night? Are you working?”
Was she? She had no fucking idea. If someone had asked her the simplest question right now she wouldn’t have been able to pull the answer out of her head. “I don’t remember…” The small noise Austin made in the back of his throat cleared the fog in her brain. Was he laughing at her, or reacting to the obvious confusion that must show on her face? “I’m not. I’m not working tomorrow night.”
“Good. Then we’ll see you here after dinner.” He cut his gaze toward Galatyn for a second, and Nadine swore they spoke without words. The exchange of emotions that crossed their faces was almost palpable. She’d never seen anything like it. “On second thought, why don’t you come over to the house next door around six? We’ll make dinner and then bring you here together.”
She swallowed hard. “All right. Okay. Thank you.” Calm down. She sounded like a babbling idiot. If she didn’t quit now while she was ahead, they’d think her as big a fool as Kirsten.
Austin touched her arm. It wasn’t a gesture that anyone watching would have deemed sexual in nature, but the result was to force a small moan from her throat and send electric shocks to her nipples and throbbing clit. If a simple touch on her arm had this effect on her, what would happen tomorrow night?
Her ass was naked. And they could probably see her soaking wet pussy, too, because she was bent over pretty far. Her ass was up in the air. Nadine’s heart hammered in her ears. She realized the sounds inside the dungeon had faded away and all she heard was the pounding of the blood in her veins, and their breathing behind her. When one of them caressed her bare ass, she jumped a bit and then groaned. She tried to move but was locked down tightly. She was so vulnerable, and that realization aroused her even further.
“What color are you?” asked Austin.
“Green, Sir,” she whispered.
“Good girl. You have a nice ass. Downright beautiful, in fact. But it’s the wrong color.” His voice was soft, and it held a note of both command and amusement. The combination was intoxicating. Nadine felt as if she had to hear it.
“It should be red. Do you know why?” He caressed both ass cheeks, and then brushed a finger along the crack, teasing her asshole, and moving underneath to linger at the opening to her pussy. Now there was no way he’d miss how wet she was.
“Because you’ve been bad. Teasing me and Galatyn the way you have all evening. Playing the innocent girl with us. Look at you.” He smacked each cheek, hard, and Nadine moaned loudly. It stung but she liked it. The desire coursing through her veins made her dizzy. This was what she’d fantasized about for years. “Look at you,” he repeated. “Naked and bent over, ready for whatever we want to do to you.”
The touch on her pussy was different now, a bit rougher, and the finger felt different. “She’s soaked.” That was Galatyn’s voice, filled with lust and a touch of humor as well. He brushed it over her wet slit, then moved it underneath to graze her clit. Nadine wiggled her ass, trying to lift her lips so that he could reach all of her, but all that earned her was a chuckle and two more hard smacks on each ass cheek. “You want it, don’t you?” asked Galatyn. “Answer me.”
“Yes, Sir.” She had no idea what he meant by “it” but that hardly mattered right now. Whatever they wanted to give her, she’d take.
Galatyn’s breath was warm against her right ear, and his voice sent a thrill through her. “You’re going to get it. We’re going to push you right to the edge and then bring you back again. By the time we’re done, you’ll be putty in our hands, and then we’ll play some more, just for fun. Every fantasy you’ve ever had will come true tonight. All you have to do is tell us what they are, and we’ll make them happen. We want you so ready for us when we leave this dungeon, that you won’t be able to think, walk, or talk. All you’ll be able to do is let us kiss you, touch you, and then finally fuck you.”
“Oh…” She didn’t know what to say or how to respond. She could barely form a coherent thought. He straightened up, and then before she could even begin to process what he’d just said, something that stung like fire ants biting her landed across both ass cheeks at once. She yelped and clenched her ass cheeks together, but that didn’t help when he struck her with it four more times in a row.
“What color are you?” That was Galatyn’s voice, and it held a touch of concern.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, Sir. It stings but I like it.” That much was true. Her pussy was so wet right now that she was certain her juices were dripping onto the carpet below her. Hands caressed the wounds the toy had just made, and now she could tell they belonged to both men. That thought turned her on almost as much as the whipping had done. “Sir? A question, please?”
“What is it?” asked Austin.
“What did you just whip me with?”
“It’s a flogger with thin leather falls.” One of them brushed the falls along her bare arm and she shivered. “The thinner they are, the more they bite.” A second flogger with thicker falls caressed her other arm.
“This one will feel more like a paddle because the falls are thicker,” said Galatyn.
Nadine moaned as three hard strikes landed across her upper back. When he delivered five blows to her ass cheeks, her clit began to throb. She was going to have an orgasm and all they were doing was flogging her. What would happen if they fucked her? She hadn’t expected impact play to be so arousing. She hadn’t expected any of this to be so delicious or fun.
They alternated strikes with each flogger across her back and ass cheeks, but mostly on her ass. It hurt like crazy but the rush it also gave her surprised Nadine, and she floated away to a place where the pain and pleasure were one. She became aware of the tiniest details. The individual swoosh of the thick falls as opposed to the whine of the thin ones, their breathing, and the way her corset now clung to her torso.
Beads of sweat became droplets that run under her blindfold and down her arms. Her pussy was soaked and her clit ached with the need for release. When one of them swung the thick flogger under her body and it brushed her nipples, Nadine cried out loudly with desire.
Now they alternated flogging her across the breasts and on her pussy with strikes on her ass cheeks, and she just gave over to it. Was this pleasing them as much as it pleased her? She hoped it was. She wanted to make them happy. There was nothing she’d deny either of them right now. Through the fog of euphoria and emotion, Nadine knew that after tonight, nothing in her life would ever be the same again, and she welcomed that realization.
