Cascade Shifters Book 2

President of an organization fighting for the right of shifters and humans to marry each other, Claire Davis needs the support of a local shifter clan or her cause is doomed. Even though she's human, she finds a way to reach out to the Clan DarkStalker cougar-shifters. Once she arrives on their land, she learns what it will take to garner their support and her life will never be the same.

As head sentry of Clan DarkStalker, Aidan Scott has more important things to do than fetch a human from a secret location. Only because he's loyal to his clan leader does he agree. Yet before long, the human female tempts him in a way he hasn't felt since his mate died five years ago. 

In order to make the world a better place for humans and shifters, the pair must work together and avoid being caught by the authorities. What neither expected was to find their own happily ever after in each other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resisting the Cougar In order to fight for the right of shifters and humans to marry each other, Clarie Davis needs the support of Clan DarkStalker but she didn’t count on her attraction to head sentry Aidan Scott in this riveting paranormal romance. Aidan thought he had more important things to do than to babysit a human but his cougar likes the job just fine and the reader can’t help but get drawn into the story as sparks fly between Aidan and Clarie not only due to their sizzling attraction to each other but also because Claire won’t let Aidan walk all over her which causes some heated encounters and the sex scenes are hot and steamy adding lots of blistering passion. Aidan and Claire are one fiery couple that grabs reader’s attention from the very beginning and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers captivated with suspense and romance. Tension and expectation build throughout the story as human purists groups cause mayhem that jeopardizes everything that Claire is trying to achieve and then quickly escalates to a deadly degree. Vivid imagery captures the imagination and makes it easy for the reader to become part of the story as the suspense draws readers in and refuses to let go while a certain little girl named Chloe charms readers and steals hearts adding her own special touch to the story. Jessie Donovan’s enthralling shifter world is full of charming and charismatic characters and its own unique elements that I just can’t get enough of and I can’t wait to get to know more of the Cascade Shifters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resisting the Cougar By Jessie Donovan Omg Claire Davis is lost , she was driving to DarkStarkler's land in the Cascade Mountains. It's winter and so cold. What does he see a tall, well proportioned naked man. Aidan Scott was mad why did he have escort a human to his leader? Clarie had to get the shifters on her side, they had to help her pass a law for humans to marry shifters. Aidan and Clarie have a lot of work to do on top there attraction to each other. This book has everything in it to keep you reading and not want to put it down. I received this ARC gift for an honest and truthful review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love it! Aidan is my favorite cougar shifter by far and I thought that his daughter Chloe was adorably funny. I really liked how the female lead, Claire, was a dominate female and didn't let Aidan get all macho on her and let it fly. These Cascade shifter books keep getting better as the series continues and I can't wait for Dani and Nate's book which is the next one in the set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from real characters & the best of the paranormal world Donovan returns to the world of the Cascade Shifters with a flair and style that will keep you hooked. She brings this world to life in a very vivid manner that makes the world easy to picture. Not only does Donovan bring her world to life, but she develops the various types of shifters very well. I loved getting to know more about the mating ceremonies, and of the histories of the packs. This all enhanced the fast paced, at times shocking plot that kept me coming back for more. The combined undertones of segregation and racial differences really make this story pop. The main characters in this novel were a joy to get to know. Donovan develops them on many different levels, allowing readers to really get to know them. Aiden’s alpha male persona was tempered by his sense of self doubt that made him the perfect mate for Claire. Claire’s concern for Chloe did me in. This insta-family tugged at my heart in a way that made me want to see them succeed. They also really showed shifters at their best. As a whole, this novel embodied all that’s best about Donovan’s shifter world. It was a fantastic, fast paced, at times rather heated novel that kept me wanting more. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read! This is the first series I have read by Jessie aside from here dragon shifter series and I have to say it did not disappoint. The storyline was well thought out and fun although I would have like a little more drama and a little less happy ending. But that did not take away from my enjoyment of the book. Jessie’s characters, much like the ones in her other books, were great as well. Claire, the main female protagonist is funny, smart and sassy. All of the characteristics I enjoy when it comes to female leads. Claire is a worker for the SEA and her main goal is to work together with the Shifters to give them better rights. She is very brave to undertake this mission because not everyone will look at what she is doing in a positive way and there are many people who are against it. Aidan on the other hand has a really rough exterior but that is just because he has a hard time opening up to Claire. In the beginning, he is just assigned to Claire as her ‘protector’ but he quickly realizes that he has feelings for her; however, he is reluctant to act on them at first. It was really nice watching his character become more trusting of Claire as the story went on. And it was nice watching him open up to her more. I have to admit, though, I was a little worried when I read that Aidan was forty, I’m pretty sure that he is the oldest male protagonist I have ever read about. I was worried because I thought with the age gap I would not enjoy him as much as I would with a younger male lead but that was not the case. I still found him to be sexy throughout the book and the age difference was pushed to the back of my mind. I am mentioning this now because I feel like this book could appeal to all ages (unless you are under 18… Then maybe not..) not just to people who are of similar ages to the characters. And that is why I love Jessie’s writing, it is able to transcend generations. Finally, there is little Chloe, who in my opinion stole the whole show. She was so sweet and loving and just cute overall. Overall this was a really good book and I can’t wait for the next one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME GREAT I recieve this ARC to read and review. I call her lady who writes with GOLDEN PEN that's Jessie Donovan is a very talented, every book I have read is MARVELOUS they will make you laugh because they are Hot steamy, sexy, loving and hilariously funny. After reading page one you are hooked from the first paragraph to the last. If you haven't read her books you are totally missing out on something that is a AWESOME READ. I have written on every review that I am a Jessie Donovan Fan for my life. It is easy to fall in love with her beautiful and ethereal style of writing and I cannot wait for more. She writes with such a fantastic attention to detail, all of her characters are FABULOUS and the pace flows well and her settings in each of her stories are always vibrant. OMG this is another masterpiece. I really enjoyed reading this book. Claire is head of ( SEA ) Shifter Equality Alliance and she has been invited to visit the DarkStalker's land. Claire gets lost on the way and her guide is Aidan the Shilfter who hates humans. They had to interact with each other which made it hilariously funny of course there's lots of sexual tension. Aidan is reluctant to open up to Claire because his mate had been killed by human poachers. But Aidan is drawn to Claire even though he doesn't want to be. Chloe was such a cutie and she was so funny. But I must say this is a Awesome Read. I can't hardly wait to read the next book in this series. But for me Iam waiting to see if there will be a Dani and Nate story. I just absolutely adored reading this series!! THIS IS HOT SO HOT IT BURNS THE PAGES!!! THIS IS A MUST READ!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this Book!!!! I was gifted this ARC for an honest review from the author. Jessie Donovan has done it again. She knocked this story out the park. I really enjoyed how she took a grieving shifter and a human and made it ok for them to be together even though it is illegal. I cannot wait for the next book to be released.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly entertaining Claire Davis, Head of Shifter Equality Alliance has been invited to visit the DarkStalker’s land. Aidan Scott, human hater, was assigned to pick her up from a certain location and bring her the rest of the way blindfolded. But Aidan isn't as immune to Claire as much as he would like. Somehow a discriminating photo of her And Aiden gets leaked by the wrong people and now a cover story has to be made. But is it real a cover or the truth. Loved this story that is a self-contained story with a nice HEA. Well written and very enjoyable as well as entertaining to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete story well deserving 5 stars. Cranky, stubborn, cougar shifter, Aidan, can't resist equally stubborn and strong activist, Claire. Even if she is fighting for human-shifter marriage rights, falling for a shifter wasn't in the plans for either of them. I fell for both of them and Chloe, Aidan's young daughter stole the show. They have their work cut out for them with this adorable little trouble maker. There is strong steamy chemistry right away--kind of hard to ignore the way Aidan introduces himself. (you'll have to read it , I don't want to spoil it for you)How can she allow any attraction without endangering the cause? You will not be able to put this down until you find out if they can and if so how can they work it out without endangering her life's work and the law that could change the world for all shifters and humans. Danger, emotions, loving couples, testing boundaries and some real steam as well as captivating characters give this book all five stars well earned. Ms Donovan tempts us with the next one, introducing two more characters that will take us on another bumpy ride. I was provided and ARC for an honest review.
