Ellis (were-cougar) + Lily (human turned were-cougar)
It was a quick read and it focused mostly on heroine's thoughts. Thoughts filled with petrified and traumatized at first after the previous ugly encounter. Well, if I were her, I'd be her as well. Who not, seriously.
She was fine afterwards but maintained on guard and also started to develop feelings to her captor/saviour without knowing herself. Instant attraction and love, of course since it's novella. Oh, Ellis is a nice, gentle and caring guy I want him for myself. Overall, Claws and Effect
was a good read.
As to answer the author's question in From the Author
about whether I want more of Midnight Liaisons? The answer is... HELL YEAH MORE PLEASE and DON'T STOP. Give me were-dragons
this time, if you please Ms. Sims!
Read on your own peril.
