Kit is responsible for the lives of a small group of lost shifters who have all been kicked out of their families.  With things getting desperate, the young feline shifter jumps at the possibility of help from the Coalition.  With all the changes going on around him, he only hopes Bowie will still be around.

Kit’s Return is the newest release in the The Lost Shifters series.  This newest book brings a small group of shifters into the fold, leaving the door open for many new books to follow this one.  The head of this small group is Kit, a tiger shifter, who is trying to hold his “pack” together, a concept that almost takes the series back to its beginnings.  However, the author still keeps this story fresh and fans of the series will not want to miss it. 

One of the ways the author gives this particular book a fresh spin is in the pairing.  Neither Kit nor Bowie is much of an alpha character, which is unusual for this genre.  I liked this switch up and could really see the young men being mates.  The chemistry between them is strong, so they do heat up the pages, but it was the way Bowie cared for Kit that I enjoyed the most.

The story has some wonderful new characters, as well as a few returning favorites.  The returning characters help move the story along as they assist the new couple.  Of course not everything is sunny and when the spiders and scorpions show up, prepare to be grossed out. 

Kit’s Return is sure to find its way onto many favorite bookshelves and, while it can be read as a stand-alone, I would recommend picking up the back stories as well.
