Forever and A Day (The Company Store #2) by Ann Gimpel
Tamara MacBride has a much bigger problem than hiding her shifter side from the world. By the skin of her teeth, and with a smattering of Irish luck, she manages to kill her sister’s murderer. Escaping from the scene of the crime is proving much harder than she anticipated. Just when she thinks she might be safe, her cab driver shrieks and slumps over the wheel. She cowers in the back seat, too scared to run, expecting the next bullet will be for her.
An unknown assailant terminates Lars Kinsvogel’s target. Pleased by the outcome, after all dead is dead, Lars exchanges the glitz of Monto Carlo for a nearby airport intent on collecting the private plane he left there. He’s no sooner arrived when a cab jumps the curb. His instincts blare a warning, but Lars ignores them and trots over to investigate. There’s not much he can do for the cabbie, but his passenger is still very much alive—and absolutely stunning. It takes some tall talking, but she agrees to come with him.
Espionage operations and runaway love travel halfway around the globe as Tamara learns to accept her shifter side, and Lars embraces what’s been missing from his long life. Initially reticent to trust one another, it takes a series of crises and a near-fatal accident for them to take a chance on love—and each other.
Forever and a Day features two great characters and some really interesting world building . Lars Kinsvogel and Tamara MacBride have more in common than they know. Both are after the same man and both have a hidden nature (The cover gives that secret away. They are both cat shifters) . They are thrown together when Tamara takes out Lars target. Lars is a professional but Tamara is not. She is avenging her sister. Watching how the two interact is at the heart of the story. There is danger, excitement, and attraction as circumstances force them to first trust and then reveal their biggest secret. The first part of the story was filled with mile a minute action and the second was filled with romance. This is book 2 of The Company Store series but it works well as a stand alone.
Taliesin Publishing released Forever and a Day by Ann Gimpel in 2014.
