On The Prowl

They're Panthers, ancient shapeshifters, and their survival depends on mating to bring out their wild sides... — Undeniable — When Antonio, the stro...  more »

Good read. Single author anthology of three related and chronologically sequential shifter stories. In this case, they are panther shifters - the three stories center around the Cruz family who are the 'royal family' of the North American Pride based in San Francisco. At the start of the book Antonio has just taken over as Pride leader and is fighting bring the Pride into a better place with the help of his twin younger brothers and Miguel, his Second who is from the South American Pride.

Claim Me
One of the problems all panthers have is fertility - children cannot be conceived unless the couple is mated [which seems to be matter of fate and chemistry, not just a matter of choice], and must be conceived when both are in panther form. Antonio gets a whiff of his mate and tracks her down - only to find out she is an outcast of his own pack because she is a panther who cannot shift her form. If it was solely up to him he would bring her home but the politics of the situation might start a civil war or harm the pack in its standing with other packs. But they can't seem to stay away from each other despite all this. There's a lot of lingering lust and they have the whole 'star crossed lovers' thing going on - but fortunately it works out better for them in the end.

Take Me
Antonio's sister Andrea left the pack of her own choice to get away from mistreatment. Now she must return to offer her loyalty oath to her brother - whom she hasn't seen in 15 years - and is afraid she won't be allowed to leave. It's politics again - until Antonio has a child, Andrea is the Heir to the pride and thus could be used as a political pawn against Antonio and the pride. Then she meets Miguel, her brother's second, and recognizes him as her mate. And she thought things were impossible before...

Miguel is thrilled to find his mate and even more thrilled that she seems to enjoy the types of games he does. Then he is stunned when she refuses to play them ever again since someone had betrayed her under similar circumstances. Without trust on both sides, how can they ever be mates? Miguel has troubles of his own - he is going to be forced to leave the Cruz family who he loves and return to the South American pride. Andrea is his only hope of avoiding this. If she accepts him as her mate he can stay in SF... Some BDSM in this one.

Need Me
The bad boys of pantherdom, Ricardo and Diego, share everything from extreme sports to their work as pride lawyers, to their women. Then Ric meets his mate and he figures everything will change - until Diego walks in and also recognizes Isobel as his mate, an unheard of occurrence in the world of panthers. Their relationship is further complicated by a powerful stalker who is after Isobel. This one contains menage sex [no surprise there].

Enjoyable read although it doesn't make it onto the keeper shelves I will be looking out for other books by her. This is currently a stand alone...

Three linked novelas by the same author. Obviously written to stand alone so some of the world building gets repetitive. These are jaguar changelings so when they meet their mate, they mate. Sex is hot and heavy right off the bat. The stories are similar in form: The hero and heroine meet, they mate, the female resists the irresistable male, the female gives in, HEA. The sex is pretty sexy, Crystal Jordan will get another chance with me.
