Before my plans fall into place to court the woman who is destined to be my mate, one of my pride is taken and held for ransom.
That ransom is me.
I will do anything for my pride, but my little human mate puts herself in my place. When I find out that she has been taken, along with a young girl from my pride, I vow to bring them both home. My Guardians and I hunt to find my mate, save my pride, and deal out justice for those my enemy has harmed.
That is…if I’m not too late to save them both.

Loving it but it could be so much more!

This is my first book from this author and I quite enjoyed it. How can one not be drawn into it with the super sexy panther shifters, strong human women and danger around every corner. It’s quick to get into and keeps you entertained, but...

My one and only criticism is that when the book jumps from one scene to another there’s no warning. I mean, I have to read 1-3 paragraphs before I realize the book shifted from one storyline to another so completely opposite of the other. For example, one paragraph you’re with Liberty then WHAM!! you’re with the bad guys. It’s actually quite annoying, takes you completely out of the story because you have to go back and figure out when the scene changed, and I have a huge thing about things like this that’s making it really hard to give it 4 stars. I originally gave it 5 but the more I thought of it and now that I know it’s an ongoing issue this author has, having started book two, I had to come back and change and edit my review. I had thought I’d end up buying and reading all the books but I’m not so sure anymore. It’s weird because the author uses these panther graphics throughout the book but they make no sense as to why they’re in there. I mean, one is placed in the middle of a sentence! The middle of a sentence. Why? If you’re going to use graphics, use them to let the reader know about the sudden shift. I hope book 2 doesn’t completely turn me off from this series or this author. We shall see....

Talon (Rise of the Pride, Book 1)

A Bar name Deuce where it all began. What a story of two sisters, follow on their family business. Liberty and Nova had purpose to continue in the footsteps of their parents. A township comes aware of shifters in the town... how bigotry almost set a pace on a bar mostly of fair of the unknown. The alpha step out with the greatest secret of their presence. Talon handle it with grace and finesse. I couldn’t put it down until it was finished. It’s good to be retirees.
