Mate Claimed by Jennifer Ashley ~ Review

Collared and controlled, Shifters are outcast from humanity, forced to live in Shiftertowns. But waiting within are passions that no Collar can contain…

As a wildcat Shifter and leader of his Shiftertown, Eric Warden knows his own kind. When he sees Iona Duncan, he realizes that although she appears human, she is a half-Shifter wildcat living without a Collar—and that if she doesn't acknowledge her true nature and her mating hunger, it may kill her…

Iona finds the mysterious and powerful Eric alluring, even though she has vowed never to reveal her Shifter side, lest her mother pay the price for hiding her all these years. But her mating hunger is rising, and with Eric so close, she may not be able to resist…and her desire may lead to the very doom they are fighting to deny…

Another Unbound shifter book! Yes please!

The series shifts to Las Vegas as the story picks up a thread from Wild Cat.  Iona met the leader of the Vegas Shiftertown at a bar during that book.  It's a memorable meeting because Iona is only half human.  Half human and half wild cat, something she doesn't want anyone to know.  She lives in the human world and her mother has hidden her half shifter side to protect her.  The problem is that it's getting harder to hide that side of herself.  Her need run, her need to shift, her mating hunger...all risk her of losing everything she has build in her human life.  And her mother would be at risk.

Problem is...Eric feels responsible for her.  She loosing control and he can tell.  But she fights him every step of the way.  They banter and she pushes against his dominance.  He wants her as his.  She's hungery for him.  Yeah, it's a fun battle between them.

But the story is more complex than him trying to protect her and her trying to hide her shifter side.  The company Iona runs is in construction.  Eric needs her for that reason too.  Because Eric is fighting an enemy from within.  The politics of the human world and the shifter world is never stable.  Shifters need to play a smart game as well as a strong game.  It certainly makes this one interesting.

More great shifter romance.  This one could easily be read stand alone but why?  The whole series is so good.  Enjoy everyone of them.
