Title: Dangerous Territory
With his father barely in the ground and his sister married to a scheming bastard, Carter is on the verge of losing the family ranch. His only chance at holding onto his inheritance is to get his cattle to market before his brother-in-law. That means braving Mason Canyon, which on top of being snake-infested and easily flooded, is also shifter territory. Most clans would just as soon shoot humans as look at them.
His only hope of making it is to trust the shifter who's agreed to help him, and pray that Rani won’t double-cross him. If Carter doesn't go he loses everything, and if he doesn't make it there his family is as good as dead.

I’ve read and enjoyed other books by Cari Z. Dangerous Territory simply wasn’t for me. Carter Bly is being forced off of the family ranch due to his father’s untimely death and his sisters poor decisions where bed partners are concerned. His new brother in law has a majority share in the ranch and new ideas on how to run it. It goes against everything Cater knows and believes in. Carter does the only thing that seems feasible. He takes his share of cattle and gets them to auction early and hopes to sell off high enough to pay off his debts and then ranch on his own.
Everyone in the Oklahoma Territories knows that Mason Canyon is dangerous. The shifter clans have claimed that area. That area is also overrun with canyon vipers. Carter is hoping to get a guide, a shifter guide to help him and his herd cross the canyon and make it to Big Top for the big auction.
The paranormal world here is similar yet very different than the old wild west. The places and areas have different names. That gives to some familiarity. Shifters are seen as outsiders and unwanted in the civilised areas. With the entirety of this short tale coming from Carter’s point of view the shifter portion of this remained a huge unknown. What happens with Carter and Rani at the end also remains an unknown.
