Title: Favorite Obsession
Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.
One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.
Note: The Royal Shifters series is set in the same world as the Kagan Wolves series.

You know that moment you finish a book and you’re just staring at the page, with your mouth slightly open in shock, only to turn the page, reminding you it’s actually over? Yep, that happened to me yesterday with this third installment of Royal Pride. This series is the first one I’ve been engaged in that has THREE Feline’s housing one shifter. Hence the reference of being a Royal. Only Royal shifters are this blessed. But when a human turns out to be a true mate to one of these female Royals, the rules of the goddesses don’t seem work the same way they do with the alpha male Royals. This is where we find ourselves in this installment.
Mira is an alpha female Royal who has been living a cursed life for the past three hundred years. From the moment she was born, the Royal goddesses bestowed a prophecy that actually damned her more than anything. Not only was she permanently emotionally scarred by a mating event, but now she’s being forced by the Shifter Council to take a mate from her pride. This should be flashing “red alert” everywhere, right? Yep. Here’s the other main issue. Ever since she’s moved to town with her pride, she can’t seem to stop the pull she feels toward the human that owns the local bar everyone spends their time at.
Josh is the human that everyone was forced to “accept” in to their pack after his brother adopted a baby that turned out to be a Royal shifter cub (Royal Pride #1). Although he’s been accepted in to the pride, he’s human. And is reminded of it every-single-day because he too can’t draw his attention anywhere else but toward Mira. It’s a magnetic pull that he’s excepted, but convincing Mira that the goddesses may have gotten the whole “true mate” thing slightly wrong becomes and obsession that feels like it could turn in to a train wreck.
Do you know why I loved this installment so much? Because, as a human, I ACTUALLY starting thinking that I could become a shifter too. Yep, I’m that obsessed with PNR’s and this series. The way the author was able to incorporate “Royal Law”, “Goddess Law”, “Shifter Law”, and any other Law I might be forgetting was absolutely creatively awesome. And I understood it!!! I’m so happy that Mira and Josh got their HEA, but I have to admit that I was just as intrigued with the way they got it. Did I mention how creative it was?
Oh and to top off my excitement, the author bridges this installment with one of her other installments in another series (Kagan Wolves 2). I’ve NEVER seen or heard of an author who has successfully done this while keeping the integrity of both series intact. And THEN we’re blessed with finding out who the next installment is going to be about in this series. O.M.G. Seriously? (Sigh) I. CAN. NOT. WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
