Blurb: Can two very different men find the love they need to survive?
Remi Ginn’s an easygoing werecat with a love of snarky T-shirts. He would be perfectly happy with a human mate. Is that what the goddess Bast gives him? Of course not. Instead she gifts him with Marshell, a Vetala, a snakelike nonshifter who drinks blood to survive. A man who’s just as toppy as Remi—and even more powerful than the West Falls Clowder’s Alpha and heir apparent.
While Remi is deciding whether he can handle the fates’ choice, hunters attack Marshell. Afterward, in an explosion of passion, Remi and Marshell mate and Remi declares Marshell his. Now they have to figure out how to make their relationship work as they dance around each other.
The clowder is in turmoil, and Remi’s acceptance of Marshell rocks the very foundation of the insular group. The consequences will be far-reaching. And if that isn’t problem enough, the situation with the hunters is far from resolved… as proved by the appearance of an Alpha werewolf.
Review: Each book in the Fur, Fangs, and Feline collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved.
I have never had a chance to read any stories written by this author and I am kicking myself in the ass for not doing so earlier. I have got to say that I was shocked and very pleased to have read this story. It was fascinating and unique, with the Vetala added in. I have never heard of them before and was quite pleased with the way there portrayed. A vetala is a snakelike shifter who doesn’t shift but comes off like a vampire as well. The difference from a vetala and a vampire however is a vetala is alive, whereas a vampire is not. When they feed they can paralyze with their venum, but not kill when they feed.
I love how there is a serious tone to the story, but the humor also is there which makes for a better read for me. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I am not one for long stories, but this one doesn’t seem like it because you have so much going on in it. The excitement, suspense, danger and quirky characters will definitely keep you guessing.
Remi is one of his clowder’s beta’s but is also very easy going and loves playing in his cat form. He also has this fascination with t-shirts and sweatshirts that have the quirkiest sayings on them. Now he thought he would be given a human mate or another feline, but nope he gets a very powerful vetala, one whose power is stronger than even his alpha’s. Wonder who is going to top who.
Marshell might be very powerful but he has no desires to ever lead a pack, clowder, or anyone else for that matter. His kind do not live in groups but with just family members. To top it off there are human hunters after him and a werewolf that thinks he is his. Although the sex between these two are a sight to see. Now, if they could just get the clowder into this century and accept different species into it.
Now there were a few problems in this story but not enough to take my attention away. The one that did stick with me for a few minutes was the hunters. It seemed like they were just thrown in with no real purpose other than to for the werewolf. It shows up in the beginning which is pretty good, but then you don’t really hear about them again until the end of the book. It felt like the author just threw that in as an afterthought. But like I said it doesn’t take away from the story itself.
Now my favorite parts is when Remi is in his cat form chasing balls on the counter and floor of his home, how he is always arguing with Marshall in cat form, and the prancing. Then there is the part that makes Marshall even better, talking right back to him. I loved how he chased him down and how Marshall hunted him. Those two rock this book.
This story definitely will have me going back and reading the first two books. I had so much fun reading it and I can guarantee that I will be reading this series more than once. I would definitely recommend this if you love paranormal stories with some hot sex, quirky characters and arguing cats.
