OUT NOW! Velvet Claw by L.J. Hamlin
Researching and finding cures for illnesses is what Dr. Evan Kidd is passionate about. When he’s asked to help determine what’s making the children of Felis Forest sick, he can’t resist the mystery or children in need. Evan accepts, and even understands, why Rene has to follow him around town. It’s not every day a human is allowed in the “cat people only” town. But being attracted to someone who doesn’t seem to trust him, much less like him, brings back painful reminders of his past.
Rene has plenty of his own baggage, and having to shadow a human — who happens to be a doctor — isn’t helping. Evan challenges all Rene’s carefully crafted defenses and makes him dream of a life out of the shadows. If they can survive all the obstacles while uncovering the truth, they might just discover they aren’t so different after all.
