If you had told me a year ago that there was a Christine Feehan book coming out and it wasn’t my automatic pick of the week, I would’ve laughed at you. Well, there is…and it isn’t. Not sure if I am still a little bitter over the last Dark book, or the reduced schedule that means we go from one book per series a year to a book every year and a half, or because of the five month push back on the next book, but I am not thrilled. And kind of sad that I am not that excited, actually. My pick of the week is instead the fourth book from Jennifer Ashley‘s Shifter’s Unbound series, Mate Claimed.
Eric Warden knows that half-Shifter wildcat Iona is passing for human, living without a Collar in the human world. He also knows that if she does not acknowledge her Shifter nature and her mating hunger, it could kill her.
Iona finds the mysterious and dangerous Eric, a wildcat and leader of his Shiftertown, haunting her dreams, but she vows never to “come out” and take the Collar, fearing backlash against her mother and sister for hiding the fact that she’s Shifter. But Eric is a compelling Shifter male, and Iona’s hunger calls to him.

I like this series. I don’t do the epic countdown to get my hands on the next book like for some series, but I they have been good, solid, enjoyable reads for me so far. So, in that spirit, I am going to have a giveaway…for all four books in the series (there are a couple of e-novellas, as well, but not sure how to give those away, so it is print books only). If you are interested in winning Pride Mates, Primal Bonds, Wild Cat and the above Mate Claimed, leave a note here.
To most, they are animals even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And attorney Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair.
It s her job to defend those in need. But there s absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can t disguise his sheer strength. Nor can the silver chain at his throat, designed to control the aggression of his kind, completely reassure her that this man has been tamed.
Yet when a feral shifter begins to stalk them both, Liam is the only one she trusts with her life. She ll let him claim her for her protection, for her pride, and for a passion that knows no bounds.
When half-Fae, half-Shifter Andrea Gray flees an abusive would-be mate, the only way she is allowed to relocate to the Austin Shiftertown is if a Shifter there claims her as mate.
Sean Morrissey, the Guardian of his clan and all of Shiftertown, is mateless, lonely, and has a tough job–to send the souls of deceased Shifters into the afterworld. He volunteers to claim her, sight unseen, but doesn’t realize that one look at the gray-eyed, dark-haired Andrea will stir the mating frenzy in him. Even though the mate-claim isn’t finalized, official, or yet blessed, Sean will do anything to get Andrea into his life and keep her there, forever.
When Feline Shifter Cassidy Warden saves detective Diego Escobar from plunging to his death, the naked Shifter woman takes his breath away. But she’d been breaking all kinds of human laws, and Diego, to save her from termination, has to promise his department he’ll watch over her.
Diego finds the task harder than he thinks–Cassidy is trying to find out what kind of mysterious hunter killed her mate two years ago, a hunter that could bring danger to all Shifters. Plus Cassidy has scent-marked Diego–essentially telling all other Shifter females, “Hands off.”
Diego risks his personal and professional life getting involved with Cassidy, but he realizes he’ll do anything, even confront the deadliest of assassins and his own inner demons, to keep her safe.
Contest open to everyone, winner must have made at least one previous comment on this site. Winner to be chosen at random, giveaway closing…hm, tomorrow at midnight Atlantic time. Good luck!
