good book and characters
Treasured Claim - Jami Gold

Elaina had jewelry trickle through his fingers. Humans didn’t make treasures like they used to- such a shame.  She curled her fist around a large ruby a weak dribble of energy from her talisman inches up her arm. A sluggish rhythm still beat in Elaina’s chest and gnawing starvation still chilled ehr limbs. She had to find some more prizes. She had to take advantage of ehr natural talent, to score an addition to her hoard at tonight's party or she deserved to die. Thievery wasn’t  as bad as committing murder right? Besides she had weakened herself by selling off a bracelet to buy an outfit for the ruse tonight. One brilliant success coming up or a deadly failure. One of the two for sure. She put the ruby in the lockbox, habit had her fingers through the steps required to protect the metal case, activate the triple security lock on the safe , insert the false bottom of the filing cabinet in her bathrooms closet and engage the deadly bolt. Full strength dragons would laugh at her feeble defensive but it was all she could afford. Stefano catered all the ritziest parties in the metro area , the employees knew her as Linda, a front office employee- who was dressed for kitchen prep tonight. Alex knew tonight was important to risk upsetting donors, even though those women willing to throw themselves at him for the temptation of money. Damned gold diggers. Years of experience had taught him what that type really was. His entire life, every woman on his arm had been lured to his father’s side after the man flaunted his   wallet. He blamed his father for the betrayal more than the women he’d been shallow enough to chose. As Alex went to the dais to start the the interest going in donating for the charitable event., he notices a woman in a red dress entering the ballroom. Every nerve ending sprang to attention , focusing on her. The more he looked at her, the more she struck him as unlike any woman he had ever seen. Elaina is on the run from her murderous father and doesn’t believe in love after her parents .Elaina chose to live away from other dragons to be as far away from her father as she could. She wants to to be as far away from her father as possible. Then Elaina’s first heist goes really wrong as Alex can see her for what she really is - a dragon. The only humans that can see dragons and sense their weaknesses are hereditary knights with the irresistible desire to kill dragons. But instead Alex and Elaina have a hot relationship, Alex doesn’t want to kill her but woos her with gifts that help build Elaina’s strength and fills her lonely heart. Then Elaina’s father  figures out where she is and sets out to destroy Alex’s empire to get to Elainaback,. Elaina leaves Alex to find her father and kill him.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I also enjoyed the new spin- at least for me- on dragon shifters. This made me chuckle at times and choke up at others. I loved the plot. I did love Alex and Elaina together and how they interacted and how they helped and healed each other. I really enjoyed the action. I also really liked  the ending. I liked how the author linked dragon shifters to their hoard. This was a new twist for me. The authors description of dragons was great in my opinion. I wish I could rate this 4.5. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.

Treasured by a Tiger (Eternal Mates #14) - Felicity Heaton

*Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my rating or the content of my review in any way.

 

It seems I have discovered yet another great series to get hooked on. This was my first Felicity Heaton book and let me tell you, I loved it.

 

There are some really cool things happening in this book, starting with the characters, which are really awesome, not just the main ones, but the secondary ones too, and with the various plots woven together. I loved the description of Hell, so different than what I've read before, and I love the fact that it truly looks like a place no one would willingly go to. I'm curious what other realms are there, besides Heaven, Hell and Earth. I also want to know more about the various creatures in this series, some of which we read about in this book.

 

I really liked reading about Grey and Lyra. Their stories are very different, yet I liked seeing how well matched they were. Grey is a very special tiger shifter, that unfortunately has been treated like crap by his pride just because he looked differently, which made me really angry. I loved how Lyra addressed that and showed him that he wasn't a freak, that he was beautiful because he was different. I was also sad for Grey, because, judging by what he tells Lyra about himself, you can see how lost he is, now that his sister found her mate, since he no longer needs to be the one in charge of her safety. You can really tell that that's basically why he went to Hell, why he's taking the risks he's taking, because he's lost and doesn't really know what to do with himself. I wanted to hug him most of the time, to be honest.

 

Lyra was a fantastic heroine. I love the fact that she's as much of a badass as Grey, and that she doesn't play the role of damsel in distress, when she really could and no one would blame her. I also loved the fact that once she learns about Grey's heritage, and understands that he doesn't know how to deal with some of his instincts, she doesn't hold that against him, but actually understands them and accepts the fact that he's not like other males that she's known and heard about, and actually tries to help him.

 

The major subplot, that I hope will be addressed in the next book, is one involving dragons. DRAGONS! *Allow me a moment to hyperventilate in an excited puppy manner* I really loved that, and I loved what Grey did at the end for one particular dragon, I thought that was really sweet and it showed how honorable he is, and how much his pride is losing for treating him as they did.

 

The book is really fast paced, I managed to read it pretty quickly, and I loved how the ending was neatly tied for Grey and Lyra, but also left the possibility of seeing them in the future open. I also loved the little hints towards the next book or books. I will admit I felt a little bit lost in the beginning, just because I wished I had more background information that is most definitely in previous books, but that didn't keep me from fully enjoying the story.

 

Based on this book, I can tell I'll be hooked on this series forever, because it reminded me of the older paranormal series, the ones that I so love and adore. So I'll definitely go back to the beginning and read this series in order, because I don't want to miss any details. So if you love paranormal romance, definitely check this series out if you haven't already.

Book Review of Treasured by a Tiger (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 14) by Felicity Heaton
Treasured by a Tiger (Eternal Mates #14) - Felicity Heaton

Despised by his tiger shifter pride as an abomination, Grey has ventured far from home, deep into the bowels of Hell in search of answers about the machinations of Archangel, the mortal hunter organisation who held his twin captive. With no knowledge of the realm, and little skill with the local languages, he quickly finds himself at a dead end—until he crosses paths with a beautiful hellcat female who rouses his darkest most dangerous instincts.

 

Lyra has been a fool, falling for the charms of a male whose only desire was to make a fast buck by selling her. Shackled and collared, her strength muted by magic, she awaits her time on the stage at a black-market auction, but before it can come, all hell breaks loose and she seizes a chance to escape—and runs straight into a majestic warrior who steals her breath away and tempts her like no other as he battles alone to free everyone.

 

When Lyra offers her services as a translator to repay Grey for saving her, will he be strong enough to resist the needs she awakens in him and spare himself the pain of her inevitable rejection when she discovers the truth about him? And when the powerful male in charge of the slave ring starts a bloody hunt for Lyra, can she escape another collar and find the courage to trust the tiger who is capturing her heart?

 

Review 5*

 

This is the fourteenth book in the Eternal Mates series. I loved it!

 

Grey is a wonderful character. Having met him in Turned by a Tiger and then again in Tamed by a Tiger, I am glad that the author has chosen to tell his story, as I really liked him. As Talon's twin and Maya's brother, Grey has been plagued by his prides' attitude and disdain to his different colouring for most of his life. Rather than being the usual orange and black, Grey is a white tiger. Unfortunately, the constant disapproval of being different has left his self-esteem really low, and this story sees him struggling to adjust to freedom from his duties as a bodyguard/guardian of the pride now that Maya has a mate. I must admit that I wanted to shake Grey (or bash him over the head) for believing that he was an abomination, but since he's fictional, this would pose a problem. He volunteers to go into Hell to track down the secret behind the door hidden in Archangel's basement for his brother Talon. What he didn't expect was to meet a beguiling Hell Cat.

 

Lyra is also a wonderful character and I really liked her too. She is a Hell Cat who finds herself captured when she trusted the wrong man and is being sold at a shifter auction. When a white tiger appears at the slave auction and rescues her, she decides to thank him by helping him as a translator, then realises that he is her fated mate.

 

I absolutely love the Eternal Mates world. I started to read this book and I was quickly pulled in. It kept me riveted from beginning to end.

 

The story is told through the eyes of both Grey and Lyra, which gives the reader a chance to see their thoughts and feelings. The characters living within the Eternal Mates universe have a strength within them that helps them to survive. However, they also have flaws and fears, which makes them lifelike and relatable. The heat between the main characters blazes white hot on the pages, and left me breathless at times with their intensity. There are several twists and turns that I didn't see coming, and there is an amazing fight scene with a Fallen Angel that took my breath away. I said in my review of Tamed by a Tiger that there should have been more of the story arc in it. However, this book certainly brings the story arc back into focus a little more, and there's a revelation that gives the story more direction which, I think, was missing in the previous book. We are also introduced to a dragon called Brink, whom I felt sorry for. Will he play a role in the next book of the series? I do not know, though I hope so. If not, I have a feeling that his story may be the climax of the series as the story arc seems to be heading in that direction. When I reached the end of the book, I was slightly disappointed that it had concluded. Even though it ended in a HEA, I wanted to keep reading! However, the mystery that surrounds Archangel and what is hidden behind that door has me looking forward to finding out what happens next.

 

Felicity Heaton has written another fast paced, sexy paranormal romance that I thoroughly enjoyed! I love her fast paced writing style, which flows effortlessly from scene to scene. She is on top of my favourite author's list.

 

I do not recommend this book to younger readers due to the extremely HOT and explicit sexual scenes. However, I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love sexy paranormal romances full of vampires, elves, werewolves, cat shifters, succubi, incubi, angels, dragons, demons and demonesses. - Lynn Worton

Treasured by a Tiger (Eternal Mates #14) by Felicity Heaton
Treasured by a Tiger (Eternal Mates #14) - Felicity Heaton

Treasured by a Tiger takes place in Hell, and not the nice part where the Elves live either. Talon keeps dreaming of a door, and because Grey loves him, he goes to find out what he can. As he says, he can't have curiosity killing that cat. And that, in essence, is Grey's character through and through. He loves his family, and will do all that he can to protect them - even if it means travelling into hell. Lyra is a hellcat who usually lives in Norway. She trusted the wrong cat, and ended up a slave, shackled by a fallen angel. When these two meet, urges rise up, but Grey is determined not to act upon them, and scare Lyra even more.

This was a brilliant addition to the story, and I love how we are getting closer to Archangel's final game plan with every one. Brink though, oh my goodness, I can't wait for his story!!! My lips are sealed on that one though, no spoilers from me!

As will all Felicity Heaton books, there were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. Instead, I was swept into a world that was dark and horrible, and yet the light of hope and love shone through. Yes, that sounds sappy. No, the book isn't. Trust me on that one!

I thoroughly adored this book, and hope to see more of Grey in the future. PS. can I just add that I LOVE white tigers! So yey for Grey!
