A Sanctuary Novel

Can cats and dogs ever get along, let alone fall in love?

Sam knows you can never go home again. As an orphaned feline shifter raised by wolves, being an outcast is nothing new to him. But the pack is still his family, and when one of them passes away, Sam returns to the New Mexico desert to say good-bye.

Gus is a loner who rarely returns to his pack, but as fate would have it, Sam is there when he chooses to visit. The history between Gus and Sam is tumultuous, to say the least, but when Gus gets an eyeful of the grown-up and gorgeous version of his childhood bully, he can’t control his reaction. And he isn’t alone.

The attraction is powerful, but so are their differences. And with trouble brewing in the pack and danger surrounding them, Sam and Gus might not have the opportunity to seek common ground.

This action-packed shifter novel is the ultimate opposites attract and enemies-to-lovers romance, and it includes a bonus novella, In the Dog House.

First Edition published by Torquere Press, 2011.

Just Like Cats and Dogs by B.A. Tortuga is a reprint, but since I didn't read this book the first time around it is all new to me. There is a great feel to this book, it is both fun and flirty. I always like the idea of two people that know each other so well fall in love. It is like your best friend with a bonus.
Sam is a feline shifter. He grew up with wolf shifters. So this has always bothered him some. His dad has died so he has come back home to say good bye. I like Sam. He is very feline like. Picky, persnickety, and loveable. He comes from a very large family and feels a responsibility to them all. He is good soul. He just needs to get that others see he is a good soul.
Gus is a loner. Sam used to bully Gus so of course Gus had to do things back. He is a wolf shifter. He is very attracted to the adult Sam.
Some of the things they did to each other as kids left me laughing so hard tears were coming down my face. They each gave as good as they got.
When Sam goes feral in his grief, it is Gus who pulls him out of it. That is a turning point for them both. They are really the perfect team they just have to see it for themselves.
When you want a book that reminds you what true love really means I suggest this one. Just know there is a kitty with kittytude and wolf who's bark is worse than his bite.
