Southern Shifters: Pryde and Precious (Kindle Worlds Novella) by Heather Long

Arianna Ferrars, a minor telepath, might be a skilled botanist, but her specialty is in the marriage of genomes to create vibrant blooms—not recombinant DNA for scent. When senior researcher on the scent project disappeared, Arianna finds herself facing a new task. With only a handful of samples and a rapidly approaching deadline, Arianna needs a crash course in chemistry from military attaché Colonel Brandon. 

Working undercover among the humans gives John Brandon access to the latest potential threats against the clans. When Project Pryde crosses his desk, he makes it his business to find out why a psi clan wants to work with high-level human chemists. Intercepting their request and supplying his information, he sets out to seduce the lovely Arianna Ferrars in order to learn everything she knows.  

The last thing the white tiger expects to find in the delicate plant specialist is a treasure more precious than any science.

My review:
Fans of Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling’s will love this novella by Heather Long. Arianna is a minor psi talent and thus considered a throwaway by her council. Shifter John Brandon takes the bait when Arianna’s council sets her up. Always the professional he has no clue how to handle the feelings she inspires in him. Arianna doesn’t know what John is but she knows he has the quietest mind and he makes her feel. Watching these two get together is a blast. I felt like I wanted to know more. But a fun read none the less.
