Synopsis

An Atlantean beauty and a voracious Alpha panther male explore the boundaries of shape-shifting passion—only to shatter each one of them, in a beguiling novella of the Warriors of Poseidon…

Having never ventured beyond Atlantis for four centuries, Marie, First Maiden of the Nereids, is finally leaving for the world of the Above to see her brother and meet the beautiful shifter he married. For Marie, an even bigger surprise awaits her—one prowling in her sister-in-law’s panther pack. No man has ever touched her quite as exquisitely as Ethan, Alpha male of the panthers. But being drawn into his sensual world is as irresistible as it is dangerous when a violent turf war places both of them in inescapable danger.

Thoughts

I was expecting a novella featuring one of the Seven Warriors that are the focal point of the Warriors of Poseidon series. So it was a somewhat pleasant surprise to read a novella about one of the sisters – and a healer who is the leader of a temple. Alright, there was still an incredibly dominant and pushy male taking centre stage, but I enjoyed the fact that the Atlantean was female this time.

One of my favourite parts of this novella was that although there was the romance, neither party gave up everything for it. I was fully expecting the female to suddenly drop her role as lead of the temple, move to Florida and bed down with a very pretty leopard shapeshifter. Instead, they admit that they are mates, and tied to one another, but neither gives up their lives and responsibilities to indulge in this. Rather, there is an agreement to maintain a long-distance relationship, of sorts. I found it entirely refreshing that the tale ended in this way.
