A snow leopard shifter in the prime of his life, the last thing on August’s mind is tying himself to one female. He welcomes a different one to his bed each night, or at least he had until five months ago when he became alpha. The duties and pressures of running his pride have his libido dead on arrival—until a trip to London to discuss business with the former alpha lands him in the path of a beautiful, bewitching tigress who awakens a passion in him that flares white hot and a need of her that consumes his every moment.Thoughts on Tamed by a Tiger: Shapeshifters, man. I like their hot-blooded style! (For the record, I pretty much like all the species that populate the Eternal Mates world. From elves to demons and everything in between.)
Promised at birth to a male she has never met, Maya has left her pride behind to go to the tiger alpha who is to be her mate, but she can’t leave without saying goodbye to her older brother, Talon. A stop in London at Underworld to see him one last time turns out far different, and far more dangerous, than how she had imagined it when she sets eyes on an alluring crimson-haired stranger who stirs new, unbidden feelings in her, desires that rouse her fiercest and most frightening instincts and demand she stake a claim on him—her fated mate.
Will Maya be strong enough to place her pride and her family’s safety before the desires of her own heart? And will August unravel his feelings for the black-haired beauty before it’s too late and he loses her forever?
We met Maya in the previous book and she's...not in the best place in this one. Determined to hold to the bargain her parents made, she's on her way to a new pride as a bride. Did I mention she's determined? Because she is. Her brothers can't talk her out of it and she wants one last chance to say goodbye to Talon before doing her duty.
As tends to happen, this puts her in the path of August, her special someone. Which is really bad timing in the sense that she's heading out into the wilds to be another man's ladyfriend. On the other hand, it's really GOOD timing since she hasn't actually mated the other dude yet. Sparks fly. Things happen. Regret is felt.
The regret isn't all on Maya's part, either. As the leader of his snow leopard pride, August is expected to take a snow leopard mate. Maya is clearly not a snow leopard. There doesn't look like there's a good way out for either of them at several points in their story. (As an aside, shapeshifters have some pretty outdated rules when it comes to mating and whatnot. Not all shapeshifters, I guess, but enough of them. Change is needed. *gives August a look*)
Another fast-paced, sexy romance with more than a hint of danger and plenty of smolder. I'm looking forward to Grey's book!
