When the tiger meets his tamer, “hot” doesn’t even scratch the surface.

Soulgirls, Book 2

Roseâtre takes one look at the white tigers that the stage manager has brought in to shake things up at the Midnight Mystery Lounge, and nearly has a heart attack. It doesn’t matter that the beautiful creatures’ handler raises her pulse and makes her want to purr. The tigers are sure to recognize her—and arouse her need for the hunt.

Pride outcast Anthony diNapoli wasn’t expecting to encounter an Amazon princess when he brought his white tigers to the lounge. The lucrative show will go a long way toward securing his future, but not if he gives in to the urge to make her submit to his dominance, and claim her as his mate.

No matter how desperately her body aches for the sun-kissed stranger and his completely lickable abs, Roseâtre is no man’s prize. Yet she finds herself hungering for Anthony to defeat her and take her for his own.

It’s show time in the Arcana Royale’s Midnight Mystery Lounge and all bets are off.

Warning: Contains sword fights, shackles, sexy showgirls, and a game of dominance between a determined weretiger and an Amazon who refuses to submit. Blades, bliss and battles, oh my!

This story mainly revolves around Roseatre, and Amazon, and Anthony, a tiger shifter.  If you’re looking for hot and steamy, this book is for you!  Although it goes against everything Roeatre is raised to feel, she can’t help but be immediately drawn to Anthony and his cats as soon as they show up at the Arcana Royale to become part of the show that she headlines. We find in this story that there is more to the reasons why Roseatre is a part of this show, and can’t (and wont) leave.  However, Anthony quickly makes her question every choice she has made up to this point, and every choice she makes in the future.  Likewise, Anthony came there for a purpose, with a past as secretive as hers, and begins to question it all as soon as he meets Roseatre. The harder they try to avoid each other, the more impossible it becomes.  As a reader, you can actually feel the sexual tension with them, and all torment it must be to avoid each other.   I loved both characters, and how similar they were in strength and passion; and how hard-headed they both were, which both made it nearly impossible for them to be together, and the only reason they had a chance to be together. Although I found the book was a bit difficult for me to get into until after about a quarter of the way through, it ended up definitely being worth it.  And for someone else, the experience may be totally different, so I definitely recommend the read.  And as I said in the beginning, this one was definitely hot, and will not disappoint! ~Erin This Review is copyrighted.

Once again, Heather Long delights her readers with an awesome story. Taking The Stage, book #2 in her paranormal Soul Girls series is yet an wonderful escape into another world. Sexy, sensitive, a can't put it down read that leaves you with a satisfying ending and hoping for the quick release of the next in the series.

This is the first paranormal/futuristic book that I have read by this author. I felt that it was well written and the characters were fairly well developed. The action takes place at the Arcana Royale in Las Vegas. It is a casino/hotel where both "others" and humans go. This hotel/casino is run by the "Overseers". A group of "others" whose identities are kept secret. Suffice it to say if you run afoul of the "overseers" then your punishment is your soul and being kept as an "employee" of the Arcana Royale until you have made amends. Roseatre (Ruth Ann) is an Amazon princess and the headliner at one of the lounges in the casino. Anthony, a weretiger, was brought in with his "cats" to be part of the show. Roseatre's tribe and Anthony's pride have been mortal enemies for centuries. Anthony is attracted to Roseatre and his tiger recognizes her as his mate, convincing her of that is another matter, even though she is also attracted to him. Things happen and Anthony is given control of Roseatre. Saying any more would spoil the book and the give and take between Roseatre and Anthony. You find out things at the end of the book that give you a greater understanding of the feud between the Weres and Amazons. There were some loose ends that I am sure will be tied up in subsequent books in this series. I was given an ARC for an honest review of this book

Roseatre is taking Pandora’s place center stage as the lead dancer at the Arcana Royale s Midnight Mystery Lounge. Management has brought in a new act and she has to suck it up and deal even if they are cats. Big cats. White tigers to be specific. When tiger shifter Anthony diNapoli brought his cats to the Arcana he didn't expect to find his mate. He didn't expect her to be an Amazon (his people’s mortal enemy). But nothing worth having comes easily and there is nothing easy about Roseatre. I liked this installment a whole lot more than the first. Probably because all the world building had been done. I think it might also be that I liked Roseatre and Anthony a little better as well. This is a terrific new series in a unique environment. This isn't every other paranormal romance you've read and that alone makes it worth reading add in laugh out loud moments of humor and break out the ice cubes sex scenes and you have a book you can’t put down.  I’d like to thank the author for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 5 out of 5 Licks Holy yum! A sexy tiger shifter and an Amazon with a secret made for a great book. The scene when Roseatre meets Anthony's inner tiger for the first time...OMG it's so freaking hot. I love her feisty, no holds bared attitude. The arguing between them is clearly as much of a turn on for Anthony as it is Roseatre. And this is a couple that likes to argue! When they finally come together they burn up the sheets...when they make it there that is. ;) I love that each of them is so strong natured and it absolutely carried into the bedroom with them. Heidi (the stage manager) is back and just as mysterious as ever. I wasn't sure if I liked her when I finished the first book in this series, but I know I like her now. I hope we learn more about her in the future as well as the rest of the cast!! I cannot wait for the next Soul Girls book to come out. I hope Ms. Long doesn't keep us waiting for long!!
