Englishman Martin Lowrie is on holiday in Scotland. On his way to the Bed and Breakfast where he has a three day reservation, he stops to rescue a wildcat caught in a snare. The next day, Martin meets, and is very attracted to, an Irishman named Calum O’Donnell. Later that night, Martin discovers Calum is the wildcat he rescued.

Snared is a fantastic, as well as humorous, were-cat shifter romance. The spoken language is mild British jargon, which adds to the humor. The main characters have a heartwarming appeal. Martin and Calum personalities’ are well-suited. Martin is a lonely in-the-closet gay man, hiding his true sexuality from his family and co-workers. However, he has a positive attitude in addition to a caring nature. Meeting Calum set into motion a series of events that allowed Martin to experience a freedom he has never known before. Calum has spent his adult life searching for someone who could accept the cat side of his nature. Calum first approached Martin merely to thank him for saving his life, yet Calum soon realized the connection with Martin went beyond gratitude.

JL Merrow’s Snared exhibits emotions ranging from hilarity to heartbreak, along with a sensual love scene. I thoroughly enjoyed Snared. I hope there will be more of these amazing characters in the future.
