Review – Royal Shifters: Books 1-3 (Royal-Kagan Shifter World) by Nancy Corrigan

Treasured Find
Royal-Kagan Shifter World, book 1

Sometimes the greatest finds are unexpected.

After five centuries, Rafe Alexander knows what to expect from life—boredom broken by the occasional call from Shifter Affairs. No matter how mundane the job, he always accepts their plea for help. He knows what it’s like to lose loved ones to the shifter trafficking rings decimating their species.

But the task that takes him to West Virginia changes everything. A human is dead. A shifter child is missing. And the human female connected to both tragedies is hiding a secret.
Unraveling the mystery surrounding her is a must. But the felines he houses—lion, tiger and jaguar—want him to get close to her for another reason. Jasmine is special. His.

And as danger mounts, he’s left balancing his desire for revenge and his need to protect. But the line between them isn’t always black and white, especially where his family is concerned.

Beautiful Mistake
Royal-Kagan Shifter World

A tortured man…A fearless woman…A mistake that’ll change their lives forever.

Three centuries ago, Devin Moore sacrificed his sanity to save his sister. Every day since is spent in a constant battle of wills with the three crazed cats—lion, tiger and jaguar—he houses. Keeping his shattered mind together has taken its toll, destroying any hope of having a family, but he can’t turn his back on innocents in need.

When information on his pride’s missing child reaches him, he rushes to bring her home. But the rescue mission goes horribly wrong. Lena, the human female who turns herself into bait in order to protect the little girl, is wounded and struggling to survive.

In a desperate act, he saves Lena. But it doesn’t erase his past mistakes. And for a broken man who’s finally offered hope, there’s only one thing left to do—prove his worth. The only problem? He’ll never be whole. Or sane. But maybe…just maybe…even the damned can find peace.

Royal-Kagan Shifter World, book 3

Forbidden is in the eye of the beholder.

As a human living among shifters, Josh Conway is expected to abide by Pride law. But he’s never been very good at following rules. He’d rather make his own. The habit has gotten him in trouble over the years, but it’s all about the endgame. And this time he knows exactly what he wants—the gorgeous feline shifter who’s off-limits.

Mira is his. He knew it the moment he looked into her eyes. Of course, convincing her of the truth involves overcoming a prophecy, her protective family, and the little issue of them being different species. No big deal. He’ll figure out a way to make it work. His mind is made up. He’s not letting his woman go. Ever.

Treasured Find:

I have to start this off by stating that I had no idea that this intertwined with the Kagan Wolves (another awesome series I just finished a month ago). So imagine my surprise when I’m reading along and the Wolf Pack is mentioned, I totally almost lost it. LOVING THIS!!!

Let’s get down the nitty gritty. Jasmine, aka Jazz, went back to her small hometown with a secret that no one could ever find out about. Not if she planned on saving lives. Too bad her secret has secluded her, both physically and romantically. After a tragedy strikes too close to home, she visits an ex-lover to warn him about a potential danger. But before she has a chance to talk to him, she is completely mesmerized by Rafe Alexander, someone who is on his own mission.

Rafe can’t seem to get it together. He’s housing 3 felines who have been “gnawing” at Rafe to pursue Jazz, even though he can’t quite trust her. He knows she has a secret, but can’t seem to get his cats to keep their paws off of her. Not that she’s complaining.

I really like PNR’s and can completely appreciate a good shifter read. But this isn’t good, it’s great! I typically only read about a shifter housing 1 being (wolf, gargoyle, tiger, lion, etc.), but this one deals with 3, each having their own characteristics and “purpose”. The romance that blossoms is beautiful, but the character building revolving around the packs is awesome. I can’t wait to read the next one!!!

Beautiful Mistake:

Since this book has been revised, I’d like to point out that you shouldn’t base your purchase solely on the “old” versions reviews. All I can say is that I didn’t see some of the issues that were brought up. In fact, I thought that this was really well written. I might even go as far as to say that I liked this one more than the first, which is unusual for me.

What a tortured soul Devin is. We got to see a little glimpse into the type of person he is in the first installment, Treasured Find, but now we REALLY get to know him and why he’s the way he is. I don’t even know if the word “tortured” is accurate enough. This poor man is…lost, at least until he meets and saves Lena.

Lena is running. Running from shifters she was told were out to do evil things to her adopted sister. Now that her family has been murdered, she’s the only one that can protect her. So what does she do? She sacrifices herself, throwing everyone off the trail, to give her sister a chance. Too bad that sacrifice almost cost her her life, at the very hands of one who saved her. But why is she so drawn to her capturer? It’s like there’s something binding them together, but she just can’t put her finger on it.

This read is JAM PACKED with nothing but awesomeness. From the first chapter you’ll be drawn into this shifter world and you won’t be able to stop herself from staying up all night to see what happens next.

Speaking of next…I’m really excited to read the next one. Mira deserves happiest too, just like her twin.

Favorite Obsession:

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
