He was gone for ten years, but now he’s back. Dr. Max Cannon is home for good now that he is setting up his own practice in Halle. Emma is thrilled at the prospect of seeing him again. In high school she was too shy to do anything more than love him from afar. Now she is a business woman with more confidence and ready to try her chances.

Max’s curiosity is piqued when he hears Emma speaking to his friend over the speaker phone. Her tone and her manner are very different from the Emma he remembers. Max tags along with his friend to Emma’s shop in order to get a look at the grown-up girl from his past. The force of his reaction to her shocks him. The strong physical desire he felt coupled with an unfamiliar wish to protect her confirms one thing: Emma is his mate.

Emma doesn’t freak out when Max confesses he is a were-puma. Neither his golden eyes nor his bite scare her. Max knew she had the strength and courage to be his Curana. But Emma must prove herself to the pride if she wants their loyalty. There is one member in particular who wishes to be rid of Emma. In high school Max was Livia’s boyfriend. To Livia’s way of thinking she and Max would still be involved if it were not for Emma. Rather than forget the past, Livia will not be happy until Emma is out of the picture. Max, Emma, and the entire pride will be tested before it‘s over.

The Wallflower is the first book in the new Halle Puma series by Dana Marie Bell. This is a short, sassy, and definitely sexy story that will have the reader purring for more.

Be aware that this erotic novella has strong language.
