My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it! HOT HOT HOT Must read for Erotic Paranormal Romance readers!!! ** Received ebook as part of a blog tour for an honest review. I love the cover especially the kitty with the big beautiful eyes :) Ok first things first, a majority of this book is very steamy erotic scenes, so if that’s not your thing, then you may not want to read this book. There is definitely a story to go with it, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This is the first time I’ve read anything by Susan Arden, but after looking at the cover and the blurb I knew it was something I’d enjoy. Her writing style makes it easy to visualize everything that is happening and be sucked into the characters’ lives. Diana is trying to make her way in the world as a lone woman trying to control her leopardess half after personal tragedy. She is a strong woman who does not like to admit she needs help, and she keeps people at arm’s length. Shawn is a confident alpha who is a bachelor after being burned before with no plans for that changing ever. Their story is awesome.  Only thing that I wish there was more of was their families. I almost wonder if there will be another book involving meeting both of their families & closure which would rock, and I would definitely read it. However, I have seen no indication of this being a series. I loved this book and highly recommend it to paranormal romance lovers who like it steamy and hot.

I received the book as part of the tour for an honest review. WOW! This is one smokin' book. From page one it will have your engines revved and started. So say it's full of heat is an understatement. Susan Arden brings a different spin on shifters and the world building. I really enjoyed the way she set up the meet between Diana and Shawn and any time I can read about shifters other than wolves (which I love by the way and still rank as my favorite) works for me. In Collared for a Night the shifters are leopards. Dianna was hard for me to like in the beginning, but as I read on and figured out just how little she knew about being an alpha leopardess it made more sense. Over time she grew, became more confident, and I liked her more. Shawn, on the other hand, was easy to like and quick to connect to. An alpha to the core, who has a desire to help his kind seek justice. There was an intensity between Diana and Shawn that I didn't expect. The set up between them, a year working together and showing no signs of interest, I think, added a layer of complexity when they did finally hook up. If you like hot, different, and leopards then you won't want to miss Collared for a Night. You're in for a real treat!

This is another one of those books where I feel it would make a fantastic pornography film if only they had the budget for good actors and special effects. Diana and Shawn have some pretty amazing sex scenes, especially when Diana is at the height of her heat cycle (and ladies, I think we can all agree — we’ve been there, almost crawling up the walls because you have an itch that you just can’t scratch — yeah, we’ll use that analogy.) I really enjoyed that Diana has more of a back-story than most heroines in this sort of novel would have.  She is a widow, and due to running away from her family (because they wouldn’t approve of the match, and they’d want to arrange something) she doesn’t fully understand what she, herself, is capable of. Shawn, of course, has that ho-bag of an ex that comes into the picture at one time or another, but he’s also more complex than most erotic novels would give the character. Diana is an alpha but she doesn’t really know what that means, and Shawn is going to help her understand that. And also how to control herself when her animal side gets to be too much.  I want to see if there will be more books in this series (as far as I know, it isn’t an actual series just yet), as there are some various secondary characters that I’d love to read more about. For $3.82 currently on amazon, you can’t really go wrong for a good erotic novel with a deeper story line than you’d expect. So a 3.5 out of 5 from me for entertainment value, character development and some pretty intense sex scenes.

Collared for a Night is one hot ride with an amazing cover. That’s what attracted me to the book and the blurb sealed the deal. Diana has been through hell. She left her family behind to avoid an arranged mating with her childhood friend Cole. They mated and everything was fine until he died. Then she was left all alone. After a year of suffering through her heat by herself and a couple of unfortunate mishaps, she decided to take of her problem this heat. Shawn and Diana wanted each other but didn’t. I loved the back and forth with these two. It wasn’t too much, it was just enough. Shawn is Alpha in every way and hot as hell. My favorite shifters to read about are wolves, but these two just might make me change my mind. Wow! That’s all I can say. Ms. Arden writes chemistry in a way that has the reader engulfed in the flames as well. I could literally feel the heat. She is definitely a talented author who I will be reading more of.

First of all, everyone stop and take a good look at that cover! It's simply gorgeous and it totally portrays the incredible story! Collared for a Night starts out with a female shifter going to a special club to help her in her 'time of need' but it ends up to be so much more when her boss is the one to help 'tame' her desires... and let me just say that ladies you will need to bring an extra pair of panties because this story sure brings the heat! Your e readers will surely catch fire. The author did a fantastic job with details in this long story but don't let the length fool you. This isn't just fillers and fluffyness this is a brilliant story that was put together. I feel I know so much more about leopards then I ever thought possible. The settings and characters are super well developed and make this story so much more interesting! The conflict that arrives I totally didn't see coming and shocked me... but the way the main character handles it is based on the training from her boss and she deals with it perfectly! The only problem I had with this story is that it did move a little too fast for my taste but then again we are dealing with leopards ;) This is my first story by the author but it certainly won't be the last! Highly enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone who loves shifters and minor BDSM play :D

I received a copy for the tour. I really liked Diana. She had a strength of character that made me connect with her. Her mate had been killed so Diana was attempting to control her shifting urges on her own. She finally reaches the point where she needs help so she seeks help from a stud club that caters to shifters. Unbeknownst to her, the owner is also her boss at the graphic design company she works for. The alpha male that has called to her and left her panting for more. She knows he is to be avoided at all cost because to engage him is to wind up bonded. Shawn has desired Diana for awhile but he also knows that giving in will cost him the best designer he has ever had. When he discovers that Diana is at his club, he knows he has to get rid of her but when he realizes how close to the edge she is, he knows he is the only one that can train her. I love that these two need and want each other. Vegas was a bit of a pain cause there is nothing worse than a vindictive ex. I am a fan of Susan Arden’s and I can’t wait to devour more!

Multiple pages of sex, a page or two of plot, repeat. Frankly it got boring with such a minimal story.

Reviewed by Nadene R. Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book First of all I must say that the cover of this title is what first drew my attention and then when I read the blurb I was further intrigued. As a result when the opportunity arose for me to read and review this title I was very enthused. However, my enthusiasm got shot to the ground after the first few chapters. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that the story was not good it was just not what I was expecting. To be honest, I don’t mind reading about sex in romance stories as I believe it adds spice but when it practically dominates the entire story that’s where I draw the line. I know this is an erotic romance, but frankly I was expecting a bit more substance. It moved very slowly. It was not until the about the last four chapters that the story started to get exciting. The sex scenes were definitely sizzling. There was some amount of BSDM and anal sex so if you are in to this type of thing then this book is definitely for you. Although I was disappointed with the story line I have to say that the story was well written. Characters were well developed. I was especially drawn to the female protagonist, Diana Hambre. She is a leopard shifter who has been a widow for some time. She had gotten use to keeping her carnal urges under control on her own. However, lately it had become quite difficult for her and she recognized that she needed help to achieve this task. Little did she know that the place she went to obtain a solution to her problem is owned by her boss, Shawn Barclay. She is a very strong willed person and it was somewhat difficult for her to give up this independence and to submit to Shawn. I liked how she was able to eventually do that and at the same time was able to hold on to her identity. She had no qualms about protecting what was hers. Overall I found it to be an ok read. It may not have been my favorite read but I would still recommend it as I know everyone’s taste is different.

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by Witty Kitty 5 out of 5 Licks A shifter paranormal romance that had my inner kitty roaring throughout this erotic read. Diana Hambre is desperate; she is a leopard shifter and is in her heat cycle which makes her crave sex. After being widowed for a year Diana decides to indulge her cravings and heads to the Downtown Den, a shifter’s club where she can hire a stud to service her for the night to help ease her cravings. Diana is collared and waiting when her boss Shawn Barclay comes walking through the door and informs her that he owns this club and will be the only one that will be servicing her that night or any other night. Shawn, a powerful alpha leopard, knows that Diana is his equal and wants to train her to be the alpha leopardess he knows her to be, can each of them put their pasts behind them and move forward together? Mega sexy read! I was worried my kindle was going to melt due to the hotness of this book. I love a sexy, dominant alpha male and Shawn is definitely all of the above. I liked Diana as well, even though she is more than willing to submit to Shawn in the bedroom, she is a strong and independent person. Even with the large amount of down and dirty sex in this book the story is wonderful and keeps you hooked throughout. I am looking forward to reading more from Susan Arden in the future.

Being a leopard-shifter her primal instincts have kicked in and have one goal in mind…to mate.

Not only do they join their bodies, but they join their souls as well. Not they have to figure out what to do about it… Collared for a Night is a swoon worthy, panty dropping story that will have you panting, moaning, and wondering how cold your shower gets! Take a walk on the wild side and see if you can survive it’s bite! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
