Genre: paranormal romance
What do you do when you've got a hillbilly tiger by the tail? Or maybe the question should be: what wouldn't you do... Nikolai Vorislav likes his single life just as it is. Simple, relaxing and quiet. What he doesn't need is some foul-mouthed Texan hellcat living in his house, eating his food, flirting with his idiot brothers and shooting holes in his home with his granddaddy's gun. But those long legs, dark eyes and lethal tongue are making Nik insane and he fears he may be caught in the sexiest animal trap ever. Angelina Santiago doesn't know how she got from Texas to North Carolina in a night or how she ended up in some hillbilly tiger's house wearing only a sheet. What she does know is that she doesn't like good ol' boys with slow, sexy drawls who can't seem to stop rubbing up against her. Yet in order to protect her friends, Angie has to stay with a cat who seems hell-bent on finding all sorts of delicious ways to make her purr. Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and strong violence.
Nikolai Vorislav´s is a Tiger shifter, and head of his clan. Tiger´s are not family people, and his father is considered a pervert for staying with his mother all his life. He even has real siblings instead of a lot of halves. Nikolai has no intention to bind himself to one female.
His two younger brothers are on a mission in Texas, to buy some land from a wolf pack, when they encounter the woman their brother was mooning over at the airport the other day. And when she is attacked by some hyena’s Bannik and Aleksei decide to safe her and bring her home with them. Even though she lives in a town with shifters, apparently she is not safe there. And their big brother liked her …
Of course, Angie is so not happy being kidnapped and taken to North Carolina. Doesn’t matter how handsome her captor is, she wants to go home! And she won’t surrender without a fight either, which Nik finds out in person. But when his sister tells him she is no ordinary human, but somehow part of the Magnus pack, with the crazy alpha female, he knows he is in big trouble.
When the pack is needed to keep Miki safe, and Zach cannot rescue her at once, Angelica needs to stay with Nik and his family for a few days, and she blackmails him into it. He will keep her safe for the next few days, or his brothers will go to prison for kidnapping her. And if he doesn’t comply, she will just start putting things on fire … Nik believes her, and he wants to get to know her, for a human she totally fascinates her. But first, Angelica needs to go shopping, as she needs clothes and other stuff. And with total disregard to him, Angelica knows how to shop and use a creditcard, not batting her eyelashes at the pricecards. And Nik can’t believe he just lets her run all over him.
Angie quickly gets friends with his sisters and other family members though, they adore her fashion sense and clearly need her help. Even his grandmother warms up to her. And both Nik’s brothers are trying to get her affection, and are fighting each other. Angie enjoys to watch it, though she is freaked out at the prey they lay at her feet.
Angie has always hated to be touched, but Nik has something about him, and he gets her to trust him enough to teach her that touching can be very nice indeed. When the hyena´s come after Angie, there is no lack of protectors to run them out of town.
In the meantime, Sara is going crazy that Angie is with strange shifters, she wants her home now. And when her mate doesn’t comply, she goes after her herself. And what she does to Nik is truly hilarious.
I liked this third book even better, because Angie is truly outrageous. She winds Nik around her little finger, but he also manages her with his touches. He won’t take no for an answer. Nik doesn’t spend time with human females as a rule, but he will have to make an exception for Angie, as she truly fascinates him. Body like a goddess, and a mouth like a Bronx trucker. She drives him insane. But she is not afraid of him, or of his tiger.
Again, lots of fun, action and shifters. A big family this time, with all the dynamics. And lot of tension between Angie and Nik, and some hot love scenes. I do think you should read those three books in order for the most enjoyment though they can be read as stand alones. And after two wolf shifter books, it was fun to meet the cats in a positive way.
