Sentinels: Tiger Bound-Doranna Durgin

Sentinels: Tiger Bound

Doranna Durgin

Harlequin Nocturne, Jul 24 2012, $5.50

ISBN: 9780373885527

Sentinel Brevis Southwest Consul Nick Carter sends still injured were- tiger Maks Altan to protect were- Chinese water deer Katie Rae Maddox from the Atrum Core as she investigates evil activity in the area. Besides shifting and a belief like all Sentinels that they live to protect humanity from the evil Atrum Core, they are total opposites as he rips skins and she heals skin. Still he suffers from injuries that occurred even before last month’s Atrum Core assault, but vows to keep her safe.

However, an incident with vicious Roger Atkins and his two dogs has Maks reassessing his partner. The mission proves personal for Maks when they conclude they battle an Atrum Core magician who once held him prisoner when he was a child; the same monster who plans to suck out his life force and steal the healer he loves.

The latest Sentinels urban fantasy romance (see Jaguar Night and Wolf Hunt) is a strong tale as the heroine lacks confidence in her skills so feels unworthy of being a Sentinel, the hero struggles from injuries, and the vile villain is a deadly shadow. The lead protagonists make the storyline fun as they must overcome their fears and doubts in their abilities and their love to defeat a ferocious fiendish foe.
