Aaric Tamang never claimed his mate - his human female mate - because of the curse his family was under. Now that the curse has been broken, he sadly watches as members of his family are able to mate without fear. At a Halloween party, though, he meets Crain Ponders, who claims that he is Aaric's mate and turns everything he thinks he knows upside down.
Kontra's Menagerie is another series I really enjoy reading. The characters are fun, and since they are a nomadic group, each setting is different. I also liked the way the title of this book played into the story in two different ways. Aaric received a second chance at mating, and Crain gave him a second chance after he screwed up so badly at their first meeting. They were really hot together, too! I also liked the way the secondary characters were used to help guide the story along.
