From New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks, Golden Eyes, the prequel to Amber Eyes, is a story of how love can tame the wildest of hearts ... After Sheriff Duncan Kennedy stumbles across poachers in his mountains, he is understandably angry. His discovery of an injured cheetah makes him even more furious. He takes the cat home until he can summon the local vet, only to get the shock of his life. When he checks on his charge, he finds not a cheetah but a gorgeous, very naked woman. Aliyah Carter spent the past six months trapped in cheetah form, a prisoner of the poachers who took her to use in an illegal exotic-game hunt. Finally she's escaped, but now she faces another problem: the devastatingly sexy sheriff knows her secret.
Maya Banks is an American author, writing erotica romance, romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and Scottish historical romance. No Place to Run brought the New York Times best seller list award and was followed by a trilogy of erotica romance novels entitled Sweets. Some critics accused Sweets to be a knock off version of Fifty Shades of Grey, but Sweets was published several years prior to that publication. She has written over 50 novels.
When asked once, she said the most rewarding part of writing for her was meeting so many wonderful readers, who love the books in the romance genre as much as she did.
On being asked about her approach, Banks has said......"I approach writing the way I approach reading, because I am a voracious reader, so I write what I love to read".
