Reeling from Project Powering, the recent battle between the evil Nexus Group and her colony of were-cats, were-lynx Lara Monroe is struggling with not only thwarting the group’s plans to take over the world and eliminate her colony, but also her own traumatic past and aching heart. Through her work as a veterinarian equipped with a special healing touch, she can help animals. Animals she can trust not to tear open her heart. As the colony’s unofficial go-to for help with emotional issues, Lara is eager to use her healing touch to help colony cat Booker Chase process grief and his PTSD. But as the focus of her unrequited love, Booker unknowingly beckons her to ask for more than friendship.
A formidable were-lynx and a physician, Booker nonetheless has his hands full helping patients who were seriously injured in Project Powering. Though his healing touch is powerful in healing physical injuries in his patients, it’s useless to help him heal from the loss of his wife or the retriggered PTSD he incurred while serving in Afghanistan. Now that his good friend Lara is standing by him in his emotional struggles, he is finding there is more to his connection with her than he realized. But dare he open his heart to her?
In the epic conclusion of the Fierce Hearts series, while the colony faces constant threats in attempting to end TNG, will Lara and Booker survive to take their second chance at love?

Each member of the colony had put their lives on the line to protect the city from the ravages of TNG. Each cat used their heightened were-lynx senses—stealth and agility—along with their individual special ability to fight for good. Casey, the leader, could see through objects. His fiancée, Michelle, though a human, was highly sensitive to others’ emotions and was psychic. Conrad had the ability to perceive solutions, whether a problem or directions to a location. His wife, Asia, could read minds and had expanded her skill from reading animal minds to human minds, as well. Casey’s sister, Kennedy, had procedural, photographic memory and was skilled in technology. Lara’s brother and Kennedy’s boyfriend, Asher, could control minds, what he called nudging. Genius Quinn could see parts of things in the context of visualizing a whole. His wife Tizzy could interact with surfaces and gather information through her feet from those surfaces. She also could leap very high and perform athletic stunts. And, like Lara, Booker had special healing power. All of them had used their skills and abilities in the colony’s attempts to thwart the malevolent activities of TNG and protect the humans.
And what had they gotten from those they were protecting? Fear and hostility.
