A Little Manipulation Can Be Good
Genre: Paranormal Romance (Shifters)
Book Length (Est.): 209 Pages
The Delaney Dare needs a new leader—one from outside, after their own Alpha’s actions led to the shifter war. Gage McAvoy has agreed to marry one of the previous Alpha’s daughters and try to keep the dare from falling apart. Unfortunately, the daughter he’s agreed to marry is not the one he wants.
Seneca Delaney is a known latent, unable to shift. She’s remained in her dare, enduring rejection and isolation all her life, even from her own father, because she had no other place to go. Standing on the sidelines yet again while Gage marries her older sister is the last thing she wants to do. Then circumstance throws her together with the one man she can’t have, trying to save a nation of shifters who don’t want her, and risking the exposure of lifelong secrets that could result not only in her death, but in Gage’s.

With the fate of the Shadowcat Nation on the line this book brings all the characters from the series together to fight for the future they all want. And damn what a fight it is!
Gage went from being engaged to one Alpha’s daughter to being engaged to another. The way he handled losing his first fiance in Tieryn’s Fury made him very likeable, but there are moments in this one where I couldn’t tell if he was being honorable or a complete and utter ass. Turns out it’s the former, but I did enjoy yelling at him until I discovered that fact.
Seneca had been in love with Gage for a long time, but he was engaged to marry her older sister so her desires had to remain hidden. When she’s basically forced to marry Gage in order to help negotiations she’s reluctant, but the alternative is much worse. She loves him, but she’d never force him to be with her. And he accepts the marriage willingly because he has a secret he is unable to share. As for secrets, Seneca has a few of her own.
“That look had been pure Alpha, but then she’d run, as a submissive would do, and the predator in him wanted to chase. Either way, he was about as turned on as he could be.”
I love how sweet and caring Seneca is. How she refuses to let anything be awkward and just jumps right in making everything look easy. She’s like a happiness tornado ninja.
The relationship between Gage and Seneca may have been forced, but it’s explosive. They each have their secrets, but together nothing compares to them.
Seneca’s Faith is one hell of an epic conclusion for the Shadowcat Nation series. It’s filled with secrets, assassins, battles, shifters of multiple varieties, and crazy hot sex…can’t beat that combination!
My Favorite Moment was when Gage needed to show the big, bad tiger who’s in charge. That’s one way to tame a kitty.
