    Great paranormal anthology

    ¿Christmas Pride¿. When NYPD cop Desiree ¿Dez¿ MacDermot sees her childhood friend Mace Llewellyn for the first time in years she thinks he is one muscular hunk. His stare could melt an iceberg as Mace makes it clear he wants Dez and she feels like heavenly ecstasy as he sniffs and tongues her neck even his purring puts her in the mood. However, even as she is FALLING Dez has doubts as Mace insists he is a shapeshifting man-lion.---------- 'Shaw's Tail'. New York City Hotel owner Brendan Shaw lies in his hospital bed battered from head to toe. However, in spite of the severity of his injuries, Brendan knows his nurse is his soul mate. The lion shapeshifter has to persuade the wolf from Tennessee Ronnie Lee Reed that he is the one for her.------------ These two linked paranormal novellas star shapeshifting lion-humans and their seemingly opposites in a cat vs. dog tales. Each story is amusing as the lions know who they want, but it is the feline who prove to be the tamers. Lighthearted in nature except in the boudoir, fans will enjoy the jocular romances of shapeshifters.------------ Harriet Klausner

    Wonderful author and GREAT book

    This was the first book in a new series by Shelly Laurenston, and it was GREAT!!!
    Though this was the first book in the series i unfortunately didnt read them in order, i read this one second so i knew what to expect from her writing and i was not disappointed. In this book she split the story between two characters, Mace and Brendon.

    In Maces story he just got back to NY after being gone for awhile, when he returns he runs into Dez, a cop who he knew 20 years back and who he had always said was going to be his.They have their ups and downs but inm the end the Lion always gets what he wants. Mace's story is kinda short but it's cute and entertaining.

    Brendon Shaw happens to be coming out of a tunnel and badly beaten when he sees the most beautiful women ever(RONNIE). And when he wakes up in the hospital with a fever cant seem to control himself. Ronnie was guilted into waiting for the lion to wake up in the hospital by her friend/alpha. Ronnie and Shaw go dont go through an adventure so much as having some fun. Lauenston brings in her hillbilly charm and creates an amazing story that keeps you captivated

    HIGHLY recommend the series to anyone that likes a fun book

    Loved it

    I bought one of the pride series books on a sale rack and now am hooked. I've not read one yet that hasn't engaged my reading interests. I think you'll enjoy reading Mace & Dez' story. I know I did.

    Great shifter fun.

    Great shifter fun with a little twist. I love anything my Ms. Laurenston and this series is going
    to be my favorite, I can just tell now. Not only is this novel an introduction to the characters, but,
    it's also the start up of a new business. Great read. Well thought out plots, and a great and fun
    family of characters. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

    I have read plenty of books but have never had the urge to write

    I have read plenty of books but have never had the urge to write any sort review to get other people to read them. This author, however, is the only exception I have ever made! This is the first time I have heard of Shelly Laurenston and tried her books thinking they were going to be pretty similar to Lora Leigh's Breeds Series. They are somewhat similar with the whole "change into an animal" and plenty of sex scenes going on; however, the tone of these books are extremely entertaining as opposed to deadly serious. I am reading her third book at the moment and have literally laughed out loud until I was crying. The sarcasm and excellent character development have hooked me on this author. I will definitely be reading the rest of her books multiple time! Don't forget to look around, I think Nook offers a bundle edition with four books in one! I would say "enjoy reading" but that would be redundant because I know you will!
