She couldn’t believe her eyes.
Stressed out ad-exec Dakota wandered into Catamount Outfitters in search of a guide for a wilderness excursion. She didn’t expect to be greeted by not one, but five of the most ruggedly delicious-looking men she’d ever seen. Not to mention a live cougar guarding the shop.
The Falke brothers have more than just good looks in their genes.
Eldest brother Axel agrees to guide Dakota on her mountain trek. In cougar form, Axel’s twin, Gunnar, was there as a protection from predators—but he had his eye on the sexy client instead.
Into the wild…
While the rule with clients was “paws-off,” both Axel and Gunnar couldn’t resist Dakota’s seductive Native American beauty and determination. As cold days led to hot nights in the cabin, Axel and Gunnar wondered if they’d finally found a woman strong enough to tame them…
Falke’s Peak was a believable paranormal romance with a good and loveable Catamont shifter family. This is a menage a trois love story, which is difficult to do because it’s an uncommon thing in Western society. Especially when it comes to a woman and two men. Two gorgeous puma shifting twin men who fall head over heels for a woman in their care. Falke’s Peak read like a fantasy novel for erotically inclined woman. Everything was kind of cookie cutter good and clean. I note that because I’ve read some dark books and when I read a book where people are so nice and overall good, I notice it. This is Dakota’s story. There is no secondary story. Dakota’s story develops far away from any civilization. Personally, I think that’s the best way for a relationship to develop, away from meddling family and friends. If it will work when you guys are alone, it should work when you are not.
The story was very believable and a fantasy at the same time. It seems like the authors set out to give us an adult fantasy/fairy tale. I like those. Sex scenes were good and hot. Falke’s Peak even made me smile in parts. I like a strong family background and all parties involved had a really good structure. Dakota behaved rationally when confronted with the surprises she got in the story. So many times I read paranormal stories where people react really crazy to paranormal events. Not so in Falke’s Peak. The love story between the brothers and Dakota was also very nice. It showed all parties falling in love on an emotional level.
The Bad (Or not so Great)
The mythology of the Catamount Pumas was a little weird to me, just a little. To conceive and mate, two Catamount pumas have to “love” the same woman. Polygamy is the only way for these Catamont Pumas to procreate, a little weird but it didn’t take away from the story.
Nice, fast read with believable characters and hot menage sex.
