Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between him and the future he craves with her.

Just days from the night he will finally be free to be with the low-ranking beauty who stole his heart, she walks back into his life and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked towards in the five long years they’ve been apart.

Eloise has travelled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams.

Will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?

This was a short, sexy, and sweet book about Cavanaugh and his mate. I was very much looking forward to Cavanaugh’s story after having read the previous book in the Eternal Mates series. He’s a bartender with a mysterious past, and we finally get to see what demons Cavanaugh hides in Craved by an Alpha. Fans of the series won’t be disappointed with this latest installment from Felicity Heaton!

Cavanaugh was formerly in the running to be the next alpha of his snow leopard pride, but becoming the alpha would have ruined his chances of being with the woman he loved, his fate mate Eloise. So Cavanaugh left his pride, left Eloise, to stay away until he was no longer in the running to be alpha and he had the chance to win back and claim his mate.

Eight days were all that stood between him and claiming the mate he craved with all of his heart.
Those eight days suddenly felt like forever.

But Cavanaugh’s plans change when Eloise suddenly appears where he works. Seeing her again awakens his need to claim her, but Eloise comes bearing bad news. The current alpha of their pride is bad news, and she wants Cavanaugh to come back and reclaim his rightful place as alpha. And because he can’t resist her, Cavanaugh agrees to return, all the while fighting his impulses to claim his mate.

He had no interest in being the alpha. The one thing he had craved in his life wasn’t power or standing. It was her. She was the only thing that mattered to him.

Eloise has always loved Cavanaugh, but when he left the pride, he hurt her badly and left her and the pride in the hands of a tyrant. Seeing him again brings back the chemistry that was always between them, though she tries to fight it. Eloise doesn’t know that Cavanaugh left the pride to be with her, so they have a few bumps along the way on their journey before they can start on their happy ever after.

I adored Eloise and Cavanaugh’s romance! So heartbreaking yet romantic, my heart was swept away by the love between them. I do wish this book was longer – the plot went by really quickly, and the book ended before I even realized I had finished! Still, I highly enjoyed this book!

If you’re a fan of paranormal romances, you MUST read this series! It’s wonderfully written, the characters are memorable and endearing, and it’s hot and sexy. Felicity Heaton is definitely an author I’d recommend for PNR lovers.
