Rated 3 out of 5 by from Enjoyable It's not too often that I buy an anthology, as I find the stories too short and leave me wishing that they were complete books. However, this is the first one in a long while, that I would recommend. Hot and sexy, these stories were great! Alyssa Day and Lora Leigh's stories did leave me wanting more, which I guess is a good thing especially if I was a first time reader of either author.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 Great Stories...I Even Liked The One About The Seals. It's very rare for me to enjoy all the stories featured in an anthology, but I did with Shifter. It's great cause I know have two new authors to add to my must read list. I will say the Virginia Kantra's story was different from the other shapeshifter stories I read. Instead of turning into wolves or some other dangerous animal. In Sea Crossing they turn into seals. It was still good though. Pick it up if you want to sample some new authors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will keep you XXXtra hot on a cold, dark night! Four awesome novellas from awesome authors! ~ Mad Dog Love by Angela Knight ~ Princess Zarifa Lorezo is on the run, afraid for her life, afraid and knowing that her fiance and her uncle would do anything to keep her in their grasp, to rule the empire she will inherit. In disguise, she’s looking for a bodyguard to keep her alive so that she can bring very important information to her half-brother, the rightful ruler of the Empire. Enter Rance “Mad Dog” Conlan, a Freeworlds werewolf, has been betrayed, the traitor seeing fit that he become a slave. The collar that the slaver, Casus, had put around his neck has reprogrammed his nanobot system, and is now able to inflict pain on Rance whenever he sees fit. Casus has found a potential ‘buyer’… Zarifa. Rance discovers who Zarifa really is and isn’t happy, but she intrigues him. She’s not at all like she’s portrayed to be in video clips he’s seen. Convinced she’d been controlled, he’s vowed to keep her alive until she can turn the reins over to her brother. **No matter if Knight is writing a novel or novella, she certainly knows how to grap and hold a reader’s attention. The hero and heroine seem real enough for the reader to wish this was happening in real life. Quickly, Zarifa and Rance learn to trust each other, despite the shaky circumstances. With a twist in the plot near the end, Knight brings another great story to a close with a happy ending. ~ A Jaguar’s Kiss by Lora Leigh ~ Natalie Ricci is a human no-nonsense woman who stands up for herself and fights for what she wants. She desperately wanted the teaching position to the Breeds in Buffalo Gap, but what she wasn’t counting on was this fierce wanting she feels for Saban Broussard. Saban Broussard, of the Breed Enforcer and a Jaguar, has wanted Natalie since before he approached her to relay the good news. He is to be her bodyguard, close to her at all times. He recognized her instantly as his mate and tries desperately to court her like a human male would. But her ex-husband doesn’t like the idea. He wants a woman who he can control, to see to his every whim, and he wants Natalie to be that woman, no matter what she wants. He plans to kidnap her with the help of the Council doctors, scientists who are looking to capture a member of a mated pair to study and dissect them, for mated pairs age considerably slowly, and the Council wants the secret. **I liked Natalie right away. A divorced, no-nonsense teacher who fights back and stands up for herself. And I truly felt for Saban; the Jaguar tried so hard to court Natalie, easing her into what he’s feeling, all the while trying to protect a very stubborn woman. And while Mike, Natalie’s ex-husband, tries to prove that she’s being held against her will, Saban is trying to convince her to stay away from him. He feels the danger, even if she doesn’t believe that Mike would truly hurt her. However, she’s wrong. Slipping away from Saban for one final confrontation with Mike, she realizes too late that Saban was right and fears she’ll never be able to explain or apologize. Meanwhile, Saban feels betrayed, believing that Natalie wants to return to Mike after she continuously defended him. Lora Leigh knows how to write gripping characters, awesome love scenes and action scenes, all the while focusing on the characters, their feelings. I have a feeling I’ll be picking up more Lora Leigh really, really soon! ~ Shifter’s Lady by Alyssa Day ~ Ethan, alpha male of the were-panthers is having trouble; seems someone is killing the endangered panthers in his territory. A prideful man, he’ll do anything to put a stop to it. Lady Marie, First Maiden of the Nereids in Atlantis, travels through a portal to this world to visit her brother Bastien and his lady, Kat. She’s never left Atlantis in 4 centuries, and the promise of her first vacation is exciting to her. While Marie has had lovers, nothing has prepared her for Ethan. Irresistible, startingly so, he sends her senses swimming, and he is more than happy to use it as his advantage. For with his first glimpse of her, of her smile, the bottom dropped out of his world, and he wants her all to himself. While Ethan has promised to protect Marie through the danger surrounding his territory and the animals in it, they grow closer and closer. Marie has never met a male who wants her so desperately as Ethan does. **At the beginning of the story, it seemed to me like I was missing something. Okay, so it’s part of the series, and I got the feeling that I should have known the characters. But other than that, I enjoyed it. The plot was good, action scenes superb, fighting well done. Love scenes are hot as well, LOL! I liked how Ethan tried to rein in his feelings, to be the perfect gentleman... and I ran out of room, LOL!
