Title: Lion's Claim
A new town, a new cast of characters, a new adventure.
Annabelle Sanchez has lived her entire life in the shadows, watching the world from the outside. Having grown up in foster care until she ran away at the age of fourteen, Annabelle doesn’t trust anyone except for the ragtag group of shifters who have become her family. Cold, scared and alone on the streets, Annabelle stumbles across Mac Gordon, the only person to ever tell her why she’s so different from other people. Mac brings her into his family—the bar he owns and the underground network where he helps shifters disappear when they need to. Annabelle is furiously loyal and she will not let anyone hurt her family.
When an agent from the Coalition starts sniffing around, Annabelle knows there is more to the gruff shifter than what’s on the surface. The way she responds around him is both frightening and exciting. Family bonds are tested when Annabelle starts spending time alone with Logan.
Logan Coldwell has lost everything when he joins a new shifter organization looking for law enforcement agents for its ranks. Logan jumped at the chance to start over after being rejected by his birth family. He puts everything he has into his job, the only thing he has left.
For two years Logan has had one goal—to protect innocent shifters and make those who break the law pay. His latest assignment leads him to a small northern California town that is chock-full of all kinds of shifter species. Several shifters have come before him and have never been seen or heard from again. Logan is determined to find out what is going on, no matter how much he’d really like to be investigating the beautiful and sweet Annabelle.

Logan and Annabelle, I just adored these two. He comes off as straight and narrow, a cop by the book kind of guy but no one with real family, at least not ones that want him. She, on the other hand, working in secrets helping out other shifters. Her family is the one that took her in the small town she lives in. He comes into town on assignment to find a missing woman and he finds out there is so much more going on.
Excitement, romance, mixed in with some intrigue had me devouring this book. I loved what Annabelle shifted into. There’s just enough outside drama to go along with the dance that Logan and Annabelle go through to eventually admit they are right for each other. I was really loving how their HEA was playing out. Things were shaping up great, there was a happy build-up and then – The End. I mean I know it ended on a high note, but still, I hate when stories end abruptly.
After the last book, I thought Shifter Chronicles series was done. However, there’s the little nugget of ‘A new town, a new cast of characters, a new adventure’ in the blurb for Lion’s Claim that has me all excited. With all the secrets this town has, and the mix of shifters, I’m already trying to predict what may happen. Regardless, Lion’s Claim was a good read and a great addition to the series.
