First Reads program, I pretty much knew what to expect Not that it s a bad thing, but rather that that as a Harlequin series there are certain things that are just kind of givens It s fun, sexy, and with some interesting paranormal elements that, while not really setting it worlds apart from other paranormal romances, at least distinguishes it enough to be enjoyable The characters are compelling, Regan the artist and Kai the mountain man It s a fun enough story, though perhaps starting my experience with the sixth book in a series wasn t the easiest way to do it The setting of the Sentinels, though, isof a backdrop against which Regan and Kai s story is told, and it is sexy and fun and full of dramatic twists.Though I m sure I wasn t expecting Kai to spend so much of this book injured I understand that it gives Regan the chance to do , to beactive, but I kind of wish they could have done it a little better than just constantly having Kai get shot and needing help I suppose it flips around the usual dynamic because she has to save him a few times, but only because he got injured saving her, and most of the action is reserved for him, so despite liking Regan I felt she was a little under utilized in the story.The setting was interesting, though, set apart from the world on a mountain, with the bad guys intruding, Regan and Kai not having any backup as they try to maintain their independence and yet defeat the machinations of the Core I think knowing a bitabout the setting might have given me a bitgrounding into the real importance of the struggle between the Sentinels and the Core, because as it is this book takes place along the periphery of things, not really delving too much into the conflict Still, not knowing the organizations made certain aspects of the story a bit harder to follow, like the seeming lack of consequences or a feel of what the two organizations actually do.That said, as a romance the book works quite well, with the sparks and tension right from the beginning, and some fun sex scenes peppered throughout There is also a charm and humor to the story, a cuteness that was fun to read The secondary characters were mostly fun and easy to like, though I might have liked seeing a little bitof some of them Still, everything worked and was enjoyable to read There just wasn t too much there beyond the dressings of a shifter romance It was fine, but didn t do too much new, and while it was a fun book to read, it didn t really get above three stars out of five for me Arc was provided by NetGalley for an honest review.Now there is nothing i like better than a hot were anything Yes even the quiet ones like Kai goodness gracious even the name gets nibblets a nibbling In this story there is an ongoing war between the Sentinals shifters with

gift Sentinals would happily exploit In Order to protect him his family leaves him behind He is basically a mountain man grrrr Regan Adler was determined never to return back to the mountains that took her mother s sanity Just like her mother she hears the whispers of the land so she felt staying away would keep her from her mothers fate Then she met Kai and it all seems to come together She soon learns that what she once thought was a curse could be her saving grace The beginning of the book did drag a bit but it doesn t take long for the story to get interesting I just wish that even though Kai was suppose to be a man of few words, but i wished there wasof him More of what was going on in that super sexy lynx self Have i mentioned what a hot big ole piece of ass i think he is Interesting read. 3.5 stars I liked it I have been reading Durgin s shapeshifting Sentinel series from the start, and it s always been one of my favorite Nocturnes This time around the formula is twisted a bit, the hero Kai who takes the form of a Lynx has been hiding from both the Sentinels and their enemies the Core because he can sense any Core magic, even the new silent artifacts which would mean his death should the Core discover him and his freedom if the Sentinels do His leading lady Regan is al 3.5 stars I liked it I have been reading Durgin s shapeshifting Sentinel series from

enemies the Core because he can sense any Core magic, even the new silent artifacts which would mean his death should the Core discover him and his freedom if the Sentinels do His leading lady Regan is also special, but doesn t know that Regan just knows that she back at the childhood home she fled because there Regan hears the voices of the land that cost Regan s mother her sanity and her life Regan and Kai are drawn to each other though it appears that their secrets will keep them apart until the Core appears on the scene and threatens the land with their evil workings.Lynx Destiny is pretty slow to roll, Regan doesn t plan on staying and Kai s survival has meant that he s had to stay apart from everyone Regan ends up being a good heroine once she finally accept her power, but I loved Kai from the start He s just a little off and almost feral he can sort of fit in but not easily and he doesn t often bother living alone in the forest and only occasionally going into the small town nearby My favorite parts of the story come near the end, after the pair finally come together and after the Core makes their big play I liked that Regan is strong enough to make a difference and I really liked how the people of the town accept Kai once they finally see the real him From an over all series perspective, the story ends before Kai and Regan make any kind of dent in the battle between the Sentinels and the Core maybe they ll be side characters in another book But there is a brief appearance by Joe and Lyn from Lion Heart which is actually my favorite of the Sentinels books I got an ARC of this from NetGalley, but the formatting was hindering my enjoyment, so purchased the Kindle version and read that instead A lone shifter and a stranger must embrace their deepest fears

characters are very engaging The story comes alive for the reader and they can get lost in the story as each scene unfolds This is part of series but can easily be read as a stand alone The story explains the world behind it very well so that the reader never feels lost in learning about the world that this series is based in It will also have readers looking for the other books in the series

own voice, this one is a bit softer andmystical, in keeping with both main characters relationship with the natural world As the story becameinvolved I began to wonder if and when Brevis would become aware of Kai, and which members would show up There is nothing to disappoint in this story, from the HOT lynx natural man to the very special town he protected Wouldn t we all like to live in such a place It took me most of the book to realize who Kai reminds me of Jamie of Lori Foster fame He s a loner who nobody really understands but everyone is protective they warned the h off, or tried to He always seems to show up when he s needed, and well Yeah.The h hears voices Well, actually, she hears the land As the H says, her mother is why the Sentinels try their darnedest not to leave fruit behind just enough power to mess with her head, not enough to really understand why The h s moth It took me most of the book to realize who Kai reminds me of Jamie of Lori Foster fame He s a loner who

nuts and sent away She eventually died I got the feeling that she didn t necessarily consider herself to be nuts, but others convinced her or was that convicted.Of course there is the Core messing with things In some ways, it pushes the H h together In other ways, it causes the h to plan to leave Funny thing the Core is perfectly ok with using things on people, but they kinda freak out when the land reacts badly to their toys I liked this The hero is a hunting guide, besides being a shapeshifting lynx, living in isolation from everyone, not just his own kind The heroine is an artist, specializing in nature animal illustration, who can connect with the mountain where she grew up She s afraid of it, though, because hearing the voice of the mountain made her mother go crazy and killed her There are bad guys trying to buy her dad s land and the hero opposes them and helps her, and they are attracted to each other, b I liked this The hero is a hunting guide, besides being a
