Title: A Cougar's Desire
Book three in the Cougar Surrender series.
On the hunt for the man who’d tried to kill his uncle, cougar shifter Jase runs into a little spitfire who throws him for a loop. She doesn’t fall at his feet. But as his prey escapes, he realizes Katarina is a different sort of prey he refuses to lose sight of.
Katarina is a loser magnet. Having resigned herself to never finding Mr. Right, she reluctantly agrees to go out with Jase. He’s sexy as all get out, and just the sort to hit it and run. But this man with the smoldering eyes and made-for-sin body passes all her tests, and she finds herself letting him in.
As one night of passion leads to so much more, Jase’s prey comes back to claim what he left behind. And Katarina finds herself stuck in the middle.

This is book three in the Cougar Surrender series. While each book is a stand alone, they are best read in order.
Jase has watched two of his cousins mate to human women. The older generation had never looked to the human’s for mates but as the times are changing, Jase and some of the other young shifters want to see if their mate’s are human. His hunt for a mate is put on hold as another hunt becomes more pressing. After his cousin escaped capture after attempting to kill their uncle, he has decided it’s his job to find him. Along the way he meets Katarina, a human that instantly sparks his interest.
I really enjoyed watching Katarina and Jase fall in love. Jase is an easy-going guy but he also has a sense of duty and honor that make him respectable and not just man candy. Katarina has a tough exterior because she is used to getting hurt by men. She wants to find ‘the one’ but has given up. When she meets Jase and the sparks start to fly she doesn’t think that anything will come of the relationship but she gives it a try and magic happens.
I always appreciate when an author of a series is able to take the same principle of a story and change it up so that it is new and interesting each time. In this case, the cougar shifter’s finding a mate and getting the women to take their pendant when they accept them. Sometimes the stories begin to sound the same with those kind of parameters but Chenery has a way of making it seem new and exciting each time.
I do wish I had more time with Jase and Katarina as a couple. They are only together about a day and a half so we don’t get as deep into their story as I would have liked. But for a novella I was very pleased. It was a quick satisfying read and I can’t wait to read more!
