A sexy new paranormal romance series begins…

They live in the shadows—part man, part animal—hiding their true nature while defending the human race from the most savage of their kind…

Washington D.C. police officer Kalina Harper still dreams about that night, two years ago, when a huge cat-like creature saved her from a crazed attacker. Although she kept the truth to herself, Kalina can never forget the ferocious strength of the beast’s fangs and claws—or the raw animal hunger in its eyes. Until she meets Roman Reynolds…

Powerful, passionate, and impossible to resist, they are the Shadow Shifters…

Muscular, magnetic, and all man, Roman is a high-powered attorney with a predatory smile and seductive charm. He is also a criminal suspect with suspicious connections to the Amazon jungle. But when Kalina discovers that Roman is linked to a secret race of shape shifting jaguars—who hunt down man eaters she is forced to put her trust in a man who unleashes her wildest fantasies and fears. A fierce creature of the night whose nature is to protect his female at any cost…


I picked this book up and finished it in three hours. I enjoyed how the author dove right in to the plot and story. The characters were believable and the tone Ms. Arthur set from the first pages took you all the way to the end.  The only thing I had a problem with was how the plot climaxed and resolved rather quick. I would have like to have followed a few more leads.  But hopefully she will give us a few more insights to her madness in the next few books.
