The Calling: Wild Cats Part 3 is just as steamy as the first two books in the Wild Cats series. Nicholas's obsession with Iliana continues and leads her into danger. In this installment Iliana, Nicholas's sweet stray kitty spends a month in the hospital recovering from gun shot wounds. Iliana received these wounds after jumping in front of the man she loved when she heard danger approaching. As usual Nicholas is angry for with her for acting out in independence. There is a touching scene in the hospital that proves to Iliana and the reader how much he cares for her. Which is something she has wondered about through the previous two books. Iliana is still dealing with her insecurities, but Nicholas is quick to erase the doubts. This books like the other two in the series offers a wide variety of sex scenes that will tickle everyone's fancy. But when Nicholas reveals his secrets to her will Iliana still feel the same way? I'm not one to spoil the ending, so you'll just have to read it to find out!
Sandra Ross once again has written a wonderfully erotic book that will wake up your senses and your desires. Her skill as a story tell seems to have no end to its potential, because every time I read a new book by this writer it becomes my favorite one. The Calling: Wild Cats Part 3 was a little on the short side in my opinion, but that may be because I always want to know more.

The title of this review is a thinly-veiled reference to the Burt Bacharach-penned song, sung by both Bacharach and Tom Jones. However, the pussycat in this case refers to the lovely red-headed Iliana, the erstwhile coffee barista who has fallen hard for the mysterious Nickolas (see my review entitled "The Mating: Wild Cats Part 1").
In her third installment of her "Wild Cats" trilogy, entitled "The Calling: Wild Cats Part 3," Sandra Ross has created a torrid, passion-filled romance between Nickolas and his "pussycat," Iliana. She describes some incredibly erotic and sensuous lovemaking scenes that are explicitly and deliciously defined, so as to provide her readers with some incredible fantasy fodder as they read the book.
"The Calling" opens with a distraught Iliana trying desperately to get Nickolas's attention while he is standing outside their car, busily chatting on the phone with his bodyguards. Suddenly she is aware of a car hurtling towards Nickolas, seemingly intent upon hitting and killing him. Without even thinking, she is jumping immediately out of the car and running towards him, seemingly spurred on by an inner sense of panic and fear that she has previously experienced (though unsure as to what this sense of unease represents). She succeeds in shoving him out of harm's way just in time, only to be struck by the unknown vehicle herself and then recuperating in the hospital for a month.
Iliana's tragic accident demonstrates to Ross's readers the extent of her passion and love for Nickolas: she selflessly and instinctively sought to protect the man for whom she has developed a deep, abiding, enduring love. In that all-too-brief moment between watching the incident unfold and the time it took her to spring into action, her nickname "Pussycat" proved accurate and endearing---quick; agile; intense; fearless: adjectives that describe the feline species.
Taking immediate action without considering the inevitable consequences is an everyday occurence with people; it happens without warning and can involve countless situations that call for that particular situation to be resolved as quickly as possible. Some examples involve true moments of valor: future President John Kennedy towing a fellow shipmate for four hours to the nearest spit of land while suffering an injured shoulder and back after their PT-109 boat was sunk by a Japanese torpedo during World War II; people whose surging adrenaline somehow gives them that psychological, emotional and physical impetus necessary to lift up the front/rear of a burning vehicle, or to wrench open a vehicle's door, so that they are able to rescue a loved one trapped inside; the firefighter who runs into a raging inferno to seek out a child and their pet on the second floor.
"The Calling" surpasses the normal, inevitable sexual interludes and provides Ross's readers with a relationship that is both complex and committed, despite the socio-economic differences and the dramatic twists and turns that seem to threaten their long-term happiness. Iliana and Nickolas seem to truly love and care for each other, which provides their characters greater depth and multifaceted personalities than most romance novels provide.

Sandra Ross writes really good books and I fell in love with this book from the first chapter.
We enter the story with Nickolas on the phone by a car while Iliana stayed in the car holding her clothing. She was hurt and in pain while Nick was on the phone with his body guards. The first part basically keeps you guessing, because you want to know what happened to her and who attacked her.
This is a book that I like to read, because you are always on edge when you are reading it. There is a lot going on as soon as you open the book. Once you start reading you start going through all of the action and you feel like you are there at that moment. After reading come to find out people were after them and that is why she was in pain and hurting.
This book is great for people that love the whole romance and action topics. This will keep you on the edge of your seat from chapter to chapter. You will not want to put the book down after you start the journey in to the Series. I found that this book was well written and very exciting to read. I would really recommend this book to a friend any day.
If you are into these types of books and or topics then you will love this one and many more by this author.

I am giving this section of the series alot of eye rolls. It's very hard to see the main character of the story in a positive light now that he is a rapist. Then we the audience are suppose to believe he raped her to protect/control her, and when he explains to her a little of what is going on, she says (more or less) well then why didn't you just tell me, aren't I the silly girl to be complaining about you trying to control me. Sounding a lot like "Battered Woman Syndrome." I think I could have been more accepting of a "spanking" (like in 50 Shades) as a control method than a rape. Not sure if I can finish this story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The continuing saga of the wild cats, as the norm for Sandra Ross’s books, is full of eroticism and steamy relationships. Sandra Ross has gone into cat territory to create her characters. Cats can be considered two-dimensional either docile or wild. She has utilized the common feline characteristics; agile, fast, hungry, ferocious but also docile and playful. She has not disappointed her readers in that aspect.
The story begins with the lead characters beside a car, in a remote area devoid of any light. Along comes a car trying to hit the hero, Nikolas, who was engrossed talking on his phone. The hero, Iliana, who was sitting in the car watching Nikolas, realizes the impending danger her hero was facing. She rushes to protect him and ends up riddled with bullets but as her role was still required and the story had just started, she lands up in the hospital for a month. During this time, the relationship between Nikolas and Iliana develops further. Nikolas realizes that Iliana had saved his life and the bond grows stronger. The ending is a surprise, catching not only Iliana but has the potential to catch readers off-guard.
The book contains quite a bit of steamy scenes, which undoubtedly is Sandra Ross’s forte. All her books are focused on erotic relationships and this book has the same flavor. Her writing is crisp and sharp and sustains the reader’s interest. The story line is strong and the characters are developed suited for the plot.
