Shifters keep their friends close and their enemies closer in a shadowy world where the line between hunter and hunted thins, blurs, and finally shatters.
Boxed set contains the complete Underground Heat Series. Three shifter, paranormal romance books. Three HEAs (happy ever after endings). No cliffhangers.
Once respected members of society, shifters are running for their lives. Devon’s been a cop for a long time. He has shifter blood, but not enough to change into anything. His latest assignment is Kate. From the moment he sees her, he can’t get her out of his mind. But she’s the enemy he’s sworn to eradicate. As he tracks her, the line between hunter and hunted explodes into fiery attraction. If their passion doesn’t save them, it’ll doom them forever.
Max leads a dangerous double life in a futuristic California that’s almost out of resources. If Audrey could finesse it, she’d go to work helping the shifter underground. The only sticking point is Max. She’s been in love with him forever. If she joins the underground, she believes she’ll never see him again—but that’s because she has no idea he’s the head of it. After a second attempt on his life, Max faces critical choices. He can’t believe Audrey’s behind the assassination attempts, but everything points her way. Will he follow his head or his heart?
Head of the shifter underground’s security force, Johannes has his hands full. He’s the most compelling man Daria’s ever met, but he’s also stubborn and arrogant. Her cat thinks he’s their mate, but if Daria had her way, she’d run hard the other way. Just her bad luck, a series of lethal attacks keep her square in his gunsights. Johannes is desperately attracted to Daria, but anything beyond sex isn’t part of his life plan. He has his reasons. They’ve served him well, and he’s not changing them now.

Great shifter box set
Great start to the series. Devon & Kate are a great couple, both doing everything they can to help others. The story has its funny moments and some sad so it definitely engages the emotion rollercoaster and yet it is action-packed. The shifters just want to be left alone and have the same rights as humans. They have an excellent, sophisticated underground system though and I hope to see this series eventually give them the freedom they deserve at least for those who want it.
I actually read this (book 2), then immediately went nonstop to read book 3, lol. Max & Aubrey's story reveals a few secrets that they are both hiding. Aubrey's cat has a humorous side and keeps her straight about denying her attraction to Max, she has a lot to learn though. I like Max, I think he is a little bit arrogant but he is super-smart to be living in two worlds. I think his position put the kin in a good position even though it is a very dangerous one since they are hunted. Very interesting story, their fight to survive in a dying world is commendable because the enemy is questionable. Great couple, gripping and adventurous plot.
The end of the trilogy is like the homemade whip cream or meringue topping on a favorite dessert. I like Johannes, he is so dedicated and loyal to the protection and stability of the shifter community. He's strong, formidable, bold and is more important to his kind then any can know. I think he's lonely yet strong-willed and content. I like Daria too, she has some of the same characteristics so they are very well matched. Their story is full of action and danger as the war against them comes to a head in full force but the way they find each other & a love that both had already given up on is heartwarming. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author.
