    "Try and mate with me if you dare. I'll bite your dick off before you bat an eye."

    From page one you will find yourself spiraling out of reality with this one of a kind plot: a world of blue blood shifter princesses and a group of male shifters who will stop at nothing to find and mate with one, so that their race will continue.

    Five men may have worked well together to find the female, but the headaches had just begun after drugging and kidnapping one of the Demori sisters. The three sisters are the keystone to the survival of all the shifter races, be it wolf, tiger, panther, bear, fox, and God knows what else. However, Carna like her sisters, wants to be loved for who she is, and not what she is. "When she decides to mate, if she decides to mate, it will be with males of her choosing", not five kidnappers.

    The plot is as far from reality as one can get, but it held a certain paranormal charm with a fresh and unique theory of the were-shifter's creation and mating practices. I had to really pay close attention to the story at the beginning so I could learn what each of the heroes changed into, but even from the start I could not help but to become attached to all of the characters and laugh at their antics through the entire tale. The sex scenes were animalistic in nature, as to where and how rough they played out, which fit right into the whole shifter theme.

    For a short story I was amazed at just how complete and detailed the story line was. It was witty, entertaining, and worth reading at least once.

    Carna is a werewolf princess with royal blood, and royal blood i

    Carna is a werewolf princess with royal blood, and royal blood is needed to continue the shifter bloodlines. When a group of five shifters kidnap her with the intention of mating her for her royal blood, Carna fights back, but they all feel the pull to her of a true mate, and she feels the pull to all five of them. Being of royal blood normally means having three mates of different species, but Carna doesn't want to be forced to mate ... she wants love. The group of shifters who kidnapped her aren't her only concern though. There is a group of hunters that are capturing and/or killing wild animals.

    Claiming Their Mate is the second book by Stacey Espino that I've read. The first being Catch Me If You Can which I really liked, so I was looking forward to reading more of Stacey's work. Claiming Their Mate is a paranormal romance, and it is one of my favorite genres to read. And I hate to say this, but I didn't enjoy this story as much as I enjoyed the other one. I liked it for what it was but was just a little disappointed, even a little confused at times. I found it a bit difficult keeping track of whose perspective I was reading at times.

    As you might expect with a story like this, it's primarily about Carna and the shifters in which she's attracted to. There is a little bit at the beginning that explains about Carna and her sisters, about how they have been hiding in separate locations not even aware of where the others are. So then the bulk of the story consists of Carna's attempt to escape capture while unsure about her feelings towards the five shifters that had originally kidnapped her. Now, while you do get to know a little bit about the shifters themselves, I just felt like there wasn't enough of the storyline. I guess you could say that the story was mainly about the actual mating of Carna with Blue (black panther), Marcus (tiger), Jacob (bear), Austin (wolf) and Caleb (fox). But I would have liked to get to know the characters better. It seemed that as soon as I felt like I could connect with a character, the story would switch to another, and I would loose that connection with the previous character. And in the end, I didn't really feel connected to any of them.

    Although I was disappointed with this book, I am still looking forward to reading more of Stacey Espino's work.
