ARC REVIEW Tiger's Claim by Celia Kyle
Wolf's Mate - Celia Kyle
Tiger's Claim - Celia Kyle

 

 

Tiger's Claim (Shifter Rogues, #2)

 

Rogue Shifters #2, I knew from the first book with how dickish Cole acted toward Declan trying to lure Abby away that he would get his comeuppance when it came to his book and boy does Stella lead him on a merry chase. I would recommend reading Wolf's Mate first just because it has an ongoing story arc. Third person POV that switches from Cole's perspective to Stella's with a couple of chapters from Grant which means I am going to assume the next book is his, and with what's going on in his chapters I can't wait for. This is a well paced PNR with plenty of action and I loved the chemistry between Cole and Stella. Stella is headstrong and determined and even though she sometimes doesn't think things through and ends up in trouble Cole loves her for it. He loves her fighting spirit their arguing acts like an aphrodisiac for them both.

Stella Moore lost her twin when they were kids, she was taken by the anti-shifter organization after she accidentally shifted in public. The Moore family fell apart after that and now Stella has no one. Stella is determined to get revenge on the man who stole her sister, James Walters, he's a very wealthy man who is deep with Unified Humanity and Stella is going to kill him.

Cole Turner normally works with explosives but with his family being rich the team needed his last name and his family connection to get an "in" with Walters, so this time around Cole is working undercover. Cole knew at first glance that Stella was something special, he knew at the first whiff of C4 from the bomb she had under her dress that she was the one for him, it just took both of them a while to admit it. In order to protect the op and Stella they have to bring her in on it even if having her there now is a distraction for Cole that can lead to some very dangerous consequences. 

 

Overall, it was another outstanding book. It's a great PNR Suspense, plenty of action and romance with enough internal conflict to make the characters interesting and to hook you into their world.

Release Week Review! Tiger's Claim (Shifter Rogues #2) Celia Kyle!

 

 

Jaguar shifter Stella Moore has one thing on her mind - to take down the anti-shifter organization that destroyed her family. Her plans are going perfectly until a sexy-as-sin stranger throws off her game and decides the only way they can both avoid getting caught is to claim her as his girlfriend. Wait! What? Now she has to fly to a tropical island and play along because the alternative is...deadly.

 

Most people know Cole Turner as an uber-wealthy playboy - not as a tiger shifter who's part of a special ops team to protect his kind. Now his undercover mission has been compromised by a redheaded bombshell, and every animal instinct he has is screaming mate. To survive among so many enemies, they'll have to keep up their romantic act, find their intel... and absolutely not fall in love along the way.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The hero and heroine in this explosive romance has some serious chemistry going – chemistry that sparks flying, fuses being lit and even some fiery explosions. Stella and Cole are strong, passionate characters that demand readers’ attentions and their romance is very feisty to say the least. Both characters have an agenda and love just doesn’t fit into their plans at the moment, especially as they just may be at cross purposes. So the relationship is an emotional, turbulent and sometimes volatile ride that keeps readers smiling and even chuckling at Stella and Cole. Of course, the ribbing and snark between Cole and his fellow Rogues is also highly amusing even as readers become completely caught up in the danger they face.

 

The plot is fast paced, flows smoothly and keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of thrilling suspense and adrenaline pumping action as the team go up against the anti-shifter organization. With surprising twists, headstrong shifters and a sizzling romance, the situation is dire and full of tension that is further complicated by the mating instincts of this couple. The author brings all of her wonderful characters and exciting world to life with vivid imagery that makes it easy for reader’s to become enthralled with the story and since all of the characters have some odd quirks, the story has a realistic feel to it during the excitement of the mission and during the ups and downs of the relationship between Cole and Stella. There is never a dull moment to be found during this story which means readers don’t want to put the book down until they have read every last detail.

Ex-dance teacher, former accountant and erstwhile collectible doll salesperson, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Celia Kyle now writes paranormal romances for readers who:

3) Love laughing in (and out of) bed.

 

It goes without saying that there’s always a happily-ever-after for her characters, even if there are a few road bumps along the way. Today she lives in central Florida and writes full-time with the support of her loving husband and two finicky cats.

Recent Release Review! Unhallowed Murder (Chattanooga Supernaturals #8) Candace Blevins!

 

 

It’s Halloween night and the Haunted Corn Maze is a madhouse. However, no one knows one of the zombies in the diorama is a dead body. There’s a reason it looks so real.

 

Lieutenant Veronica Woods is dressed as a Power Ranger, as are her four friends, enjoying the frights and scares in the chill autumn air. Ronnie is a tiger-shifter, and her sense of smell points her to the body, but there’s no logical reason for her to climb the small hill and traipse through the display. At least, not until she scents a group of vampires, and she bullies and coerces one of them into helping her report the crime so she can begin her investigation.

 

Josef is an ancient vampire with a military mindset. He was a general in his human life, and now he’s head of security for one of the most powerful vampires alive. He hasn’t had a personal relationship in decades, and has no interest in one, but the adorable little tiger shifter walks like a sex kitten and issues orders like a military general. Her people obviously respect her, and he finds he doesn’t want to leave her side when she’s ready to turn him loose.

 

NOTE: Unhallowed Murder can be read as a stand-alone.

 

 

This paranormal murder mystery romance takes place around Halloween which enhances the atmosphere to the mystery as the strong, bold characters discover a body while out celebrating with friends. The mystery augments the story with thrilling suspense and keeps reader guessing ‘who done it?’ right along with Ronni and Josef in this fast paced and thrilling story. And readers get the thrill of trying to discover clues and find evidence right alongside the characters as the author paints such vivid imagery which makes it easy for readers to imagine each and every scene. The plots is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout the story with lots of electrical chemistry flowing between Ronni and Josef which adds lots of hot and spicy romance to the story. The romance is the story starts with each of the characters being intrigued with each other and they kind of negotiate their way into a relationship which builds the suspense of the romance. Once again, the Chattanooga Supernaturals provide a rip roaring romance that keeps readers entertained from beginning to end, which is kind of fitting since it’s about a vampire and a tiger shifter. The story can be read alone without reading the other books in the series and it is a bit different being it is a murder mystery romance but it is still part of the fascinating world full of wonderful characters that reader can’t get enough of.

Candace Blevins has published more than forty books. She lives with her husband of 20 years and their two daughters. When not working or driving young teens all over the place, she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming. The family’s beloved, goofy, retired racing greyhound is usually at her side as she writes, quietly keeping her company.

 

Candace writes Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary BDSM Romance, and a kick-ass Motorcycle Club series.

 

Her urban fantasy series, Only Human, gives us a world where weredragons, werewolves, werelions, and three different species of vampires exist, as well as a variety of other mythological beings.

 

Candace’s two paranormal romance series, The Chattanooga Supernaturals and The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, are both sister series to the Only Human books, and gives some secondary characters their happily ever after. Her three paranormal series are written so you can read one series, or all three, should you prefer only a particular genre.

 

Her Safeword Series gives us characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work. Each book in the Safeword series highlights a couple with a different take on the lifestyle.

Raz escaped the cage she been in her whole life only to find herself tenderly trapped between the Alpha and the Beta of the North Woods pack. Readers can’t help but become completely engrossed in this decadent and gripping shifter romance with strong, vivid characters and a fascinating love. The relationship is full of depth and lots of emotional turmoil that makes it easy for readers to connect with them and understand their motivations and the passion is sinfully decadent and full of sizzling chemistry and scorching passion. The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout the story with some thrilling suspense and excitement when others show up, claiming that Raz belongs to them and when Raz learns some astonishing news about herself. The intriguing, exotic world and the wonderful characters is well developed and has some erotic twist that makes this world even hotter and more exhilarating, although this story is a little on the short side and has an overall series story arc that has readers impatiently awaiting to find out what happens next.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the veil between good and evil starts tearing, the shifters are preparing for war while ancient goddesses are reincarnating which adds some wildly intriguing twists to this exhilarating world. In Huntress, Rose learns that the Alpha and Beta of the neighboring bear clan are her mates which turns her world upside down. But other changes are even more stunning to her existence which makes the emotional turbulence that Rose is facing as she tries to accept her new role even more chaotic. The romance between Rose and her bears is sweet and electrifying but there are some that refuse to accept a wolf as the Matriarch of their clan, which adds lots of thrills, excitement and surprising twist to this fast paced and smooth flowing plot with strong, bold characters that easily draw readers in and refuse to let go. While the story could be a little longer, it can be read as a standalone as each triad gets their beginning and the parts they will play in the of the overall story arc told but to really enjoy the books readers should read them in sequential order for better understanding of the good versus evil battle that is coming.

"Real Tigers - Slough House #3" by Mick Herron - Part of my Summer of Spies reading
Real Tigers - Mick Herron

Slough House is where MI5 stables its Slow Horses, screw-ups assigned soul-destroying make-work tasks designed to drive them to resign from the service, Except each of them believes that, one day, they'll earn their way out of Slough House. That unlikely hope keeps them working at pointless tasks that verge on self-harm.

 

The atmosphere in Slough House, this purgatory for fallen spies, reaks of quiet desperation sustained through sheer bloodymindedness in the face of failure, weakness and disregard. In that respect, the Slough house books are quintessentially English.

 

"Real Tigers" starts with the abduction of one of the Slough House crew and rapidly escalates into a situation which could end Slough House and bring the Intelligence community under the close control of Home Secretary Judd, an unscrupulous right winger, with his eye on the premiership who is willing to do anything to advance his career.

 

Where it not for the fact the Boris Johnson is indirectly referred to in the book, one might think that Judd, this clown-on-the-outside-elitist-narcissistic-sociopath-on-the-inside character was Boris under a different name.

 

Although the plot is clever, the pace is tense, the action is vivid and violent and the . contemporary politics is convincing and provocative, the reason I enjoy these books is the quality of Mick Herron's writing which has the same dank smell as a London Underground stairwell on a Sunday morning. He manages perfectly to blend the lyrical with the cynical to produce a beaten up, abused-by-its-owner sort of hope.

 

He describes an online forum for conspiracy theorists or whack jobs as the professionals describe them as a place where:

"the prevailing attitude resembled what you’d get if you spliced the DNA of an only child, a Daily Mail reader and a viciously toxic bacillus: an organism that was self-obsessed, full of pent-up rage, and sprayed poisonous shit everywhere. Symptoms included a tendency to lapse into capitals, the dismissal of all dissent as Establishment toadying, and a blinding ignorance of Occam’s razor."

He evokes Judd's character with deft throwaway descriptions of behaviour like:

"Judd worked his way through a train of thought, carriage by carriage."

and follows up with interior dialogue like Judd telling himself to put his game face on to deal with a situation and then saying to himself:

"Yes, well, anyone who didn’t have a game face for the plebs didn’t deserve their vote in the first place, was Judd’s view. Not that he’d say it out loud, of course—always important to stress that. Never say 'plebs' out loud."

"Real Tigers" is an excellent book to read if you want a spy novel that will make you glad you're not a spy, make you cheer for the underdog and give you hope that Boris  Judd will get his comeuppance very soon.
