Kaelin James was living a lie.
Having escaped from a government facility as a child experiment, she'd grown up keeping secrets that could get herself, and anyone else who knew, killed by the people sent to track her down and bring her back.
Isandro Navarro was sent by his Elders to guard Kaelin. He only knew the Elders had a reason to protect her, but he wasn't aware of why. It was not his place to question, only to do. He had his own secrets as well. He was Balam, a Jaguar Lord, descended from generations of shape shifting warriors.
As the danger heats up, so do their desires, until something had to give.

This is my entry for NanoWriMo2009. *Dances*
I am so excited to begin. I have character sheets done, the plot set (mostly!), and a basic idea of how it will end.
I am so damn excited!
