Publisher’s Blurb  
On the run for her life, Toni finds safety with the mysterious Oh-Mah people living deep in the Carolina Mountains. Direct descendants from a legendary creature, they are more human than beast. With the exception of being big and tall, they no longer carry any of the original Bigfoot hairy, monstrous traits. Yet they prefer the simple, uncomplicated life their beastly ancestors lived. They remain far away from civilization, feeding the surrounding small, town locals with rare sightings that keep the myth alive.

Captured by their rugged leader, Cormac, Toni must undergo an ancient mating ritual in order not to be claimed and mated by any of the other males. Once Cormac mates with her in a public ceremony, she will be off limits to everyone but him, something Toni is grateful for. She gradually falls for the powerful leader, willingly giving in to his ravenous demands for sex. He vows to protect and love her, but can she give up her old life to live with him in the mountains?

The Mating Ritual by author Tory Richards is a fast paced paranormal.  I liked that this book deals with paranormals we do not normally see …Big Foot.   The caveman style that Cormac our hero has really didn’t do it for me, but I suppose if you like your men caveman style he would be a draw for you.  I loved the premise before the whole me Tarzan you Jane thing happened.  Toni is visiting a cabin in the woods she likes, when she finds out that all the people who were on the jury of a murder trail are being killed.  When the hit men come after her she begins her adventure in the woods.  After all it is Cormac who saves her.  Then we go into the twilight zone for a while, I really struggled with believing any woman would want to be treated the way Toni was. But again she likes that treatment which completely puzzled me.  There is a lot you must suspend your belief for. However if you can do that, and not look too hard at this story it is quite good. I like for a short paranormal romance it is okay, I am glad I got to read it. However if it was a series I would not be looking for more. Just too much suspension of belief for me personally.
