The Bodyguard is a Pussycat.
Whisper of Sin.
Part of the Psy /Changeling series
. By Nalini Singh.
This is a novella set in the early part of the series, but I read it after a lot of the others and still enjoyed it enormously.
Ria is a Chinese /American human. She has been attacked by someone trying to run a protection racket in a city that the Dark River Pack calls home.
Emmett is a Dark River soldier on patrol when he and his partner come across the attack.
Emmett knows once this gang sets It’s sights on someone they don’t give up. That means it is the packs duty to protect this family of humans from harm.
Ria’s family are very important to her, but Emmett knows how that is because the Dark River Pack is Just the same to him.
I love this series, all the characters are so much fun. I would love one of these leopards myself . They are brave, protective but playful.
