Review: Bitten by a Hellcat - Felicity Heaton
Cait is in a spot of trouble with a capital T. A male hellcat has set his sights on claiming her and she’s one kitty who doesn’t want a collar, and who has spent her life avoiding relationship and is intent on remaining free. When she meets a dark, alluring and mysterious hunter, she sees a chance to rid herself of the male, but the price Owen sets and the fierce passion that burns white-hot between them lures her dangerously under his seductive spell.
Can Owen discover the true intent of the male hellcat and stop Cait from falling into his hands? And can Cait retain control as the heat of desire burns between her and Owen, or will a reckless moment seal both of their fates forever?

Owen comes from a long line of hunters and has spent his whole life training to fight shifters, demons and other supernatural creatures who prey on humans. He works as a mercenary and lives by his own code but he is good at what he does in spite of being human and therefore much weaker than the prey he hunts. Cait is a rare form of shifter, a hellcat, and she is being chased by a male who wants to collar her and force her into being his mate. She has no intention of being caught easily but she knows she will need help if she wants to keep her freedom so she offers Owen the job of taking out the male hellcat who is set on claiming her. Even fighting for their lives isn't enough to dampen the passion that flares between Owen and Cait but it is only when she makes a mistake that is likely to cost Owen his life that she realises just how much he means to her. She will do whatever it takes to save him but it may cost her the thing she prizes most - her freedom.
As a huge fan of this series I was excited to get my hands on a copy of Bitten by a Hellcat and couldn't wait to start reading it. I have to admit that it took me a little longer to get invested in the story than the previous instalments which I think was mainly down to the fact that we haven't met either of these characters before (well, I don't remember either of them anyway). Luckily that didn't last long though and once we started to get to know both Cait and Owen I was quickly able to root for them as a couple. Owen is a really sweet guy, he may bend the rules but he has his own code of honour and I loved how protective he was of Cait. He wouldn't sit by and let anyone be injured on his watch though and was more than willing to step up even when it was against powerful enemies. Cait is kick ass in her own right and she is just as protective of Owen as he is of her. It was great to see her put her life on the line to protect him and I felt that they were a really well matched couple.
Bitten by a Hellcat is a fast and fun romance with fantastic chemistry between the main characters and plenty of action both in and out of the bedroom. It expands further on the world that Felicity Heaton has created and if you're a fan of the series you'll recognise a few cameos from characters we already know and love. One think I was particularly excited about is that I think we may finally have met the woman who is going to bring my favourite elf Blue to his knees, I've been looking forward to his story for a long time now & I'm hoping the snippet we see of him here means that his book is getting closer!
