On the road: A picture could be worth a thousand words, or it could be his salvation.
The haunting eyes in the picture capture Caleb Belikov’s attention, and he knows he has to confirm whether the white buffalo is really just an animal, or a shifter trapped at a zoo near Albuquerque. Caleb talks his alpha and a few friends into accompanying him and discovers not only is the buffalo a shifter, but he’s his mate. But rescuing Emmett will put the lives of innocents in danger, creating a whole new set of problems. Can Caleb and his friends figure out how to keep everyone safe from a blackmailing alpha?
My, my. Have I told you how much I enjoy Charlie’s shifter stories? No? Well I know I have but I’ll repeat it again. Ms. Richard’s is truly a gifted writer who manages to pull you into her world of shifting stories and always leaves you begging for her to write another one.
In this story we meet Emmett who is a huge white buffalo and one that is and has been trapped in zoo’s for almost eight years. As you can guess Emmett is a shifter but sadly he’s been tricked against his will by his alpha and father and trapped in his animal form because he’s gay.
Enter Caleb and the other’s from the bike gang who catch wind of the white buffalo being moved to another zoo by reading a newspaper. The picture of the buffalo draws Caleb’s attention, as there was something in the animal’s eyes that drew him in. He insists to his alpha that he thinks the buffalo is a shifter and needs to see him to be sure.
The gang heads off to the zoo and lo and behold it turns out that Caleb is right. Caleb is the chameleon shifter of the group and his alpha is Kontra, a bear shifter, and together they manage to get Caleb into the pen where Emmet is, but Caleb is spotted and it’s up to the buffalo to save him.
I don’t want to give away a lot of details to this story but if you’re a fan of this author I will promise you, this is an amazing story full of moments that leave you with a feeling of more and changing pages just as fast. I highly recommend this read and I’m anxiously awaiting for more.
