This one is about Angus (wolf) & Tamsin (fox). He's sent to bring her in, but she wins his heart instead. Along with his son Ciaran, they end up on the run. Along the way, Dylan, Tiger, Ben, Dimitri, Lady Aisling & others make appearances. A few new characters. Not sure what's up with Haider, it felt unresolved with him. Look forward to Tiger Striped.

Book 11 in the Shifter Unbound series, MIDNIGHT WOLF tells the story of Angus, who was introduced in RED WOLF, and Tamsin, a shifter of a different sort. As a Fox shifter, a kind largely unknown in the shifter world, Tamsin has some interesting talents as well as being a fun and challenging potential mate for Angus’s growly wolf self. He is coerced into going after Tamsin by a Shifter Bureau agent holding someone precious to him which forces Angus into a difficult situation. The wily fox that is Tamsin leads him on a merry chase. Once it becomes clear he is not going to give her up, they start a great adventure while living on the run. Ben, Zander, and Tiger also show up to help out which always adds to the enjoyment. There are some very interesting things revealed about Tamsin’s heritage that may add to a future paradigm shift in not only the coming war with the fae, but the circumscribed life collared shifters lead while under the government’s very restrictive thumb. This book focuses mostly on Angus and Tamsin's developing relationship. Despite Angus and Tamsin’s difficult circumstances, Tamsin’s joyful and fun loving approach to life gives this story a happier tone. Shifters live a particularly harsh life already trying to balance their natures with the extreme limitations placed on them by the government including the control collars most of them are forced to wear. Tamsin reminds Angus happiness is to be found in even the darkest places. This far into the series, Ms. Ashley keeps it interesting by adding the new elements while intermixing folks from the previous books. It looks like the next book will be Ben’s, the lonely not-fae, otherworldly man who has seen much loss and heartache. The shifters have sort of adopted him as he has helped them battle their enemies, both human and fae. Readers of the series will enjoy Angus, Tamsin, and their shifter allies.

OMB spoiler alert!!! To find our your not created by a bunch of pointy eared psychos, has to be the best thing in the world! And to have a form of magic power on top of that EPIC!

Angus is a bouncer and collared shifter in New Orleans. He’s happy minding his own business until the Shifter Bureau comes in and threatens his cub/son. If he doesn’t capture a collar-less shifter, Tamsin, he will loose his cub. Tamsin is wild, fun and completely spontaneous and nothing Angus has ever encountered. From the moment Angus sees Tamsin he is attracted but nothing, and I mean nothing will come between him and keeping his cub safe. I completely loved Tamsin, she was a character you can form that special reader connection with. The relationship she, Angus and his cub is a slow but steady and believable build which was amazing. There are some past character interactions, which if you know me, I loved. Can’t wait to see what happens with Ben… and boy, Zander, the tiger, popping back into the picture was simply delightful. Midnight Wolf is a tantalizing shifter romance set in a well developed and complex shifter world. Great read and a great addition to the Shifter Unbound series. I received this ARC copy of Midnight Wolf from Berkley Publishing Group. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Love Jennifer Ashley's shifters! Each story gives us answers to the over arching story as well as a very satisfying romance HEA. Her stories are so well crafted! We got to know Angus Murray, widowed black wolf in Red Wolf. He's the bouncer at the New Orleans shifter bar. He's very good at his job and manages to really care about the shifters who come there. His son has been kidnapped by the evil Jayson Haider of the Shifter Bureau to get him to use his tracking skills to find the very elusive Tamsin Calloway. She's an uncollared, unregistered shifter of unknown variety who find herself in the thick of movements to free shifters. Angus is furious over this tactic and sets out right away. He has little trouble tracking the slippery little lady with flaming red hair the smells not quite right. Turns out she's an extremely rare fox shifter and she's very hard to keep captive since her fox form is so small and quick and crafty. Angus' guardian-protector heart gets in his way of turning her over to the Shifter Bureau, but with the help of his friends Ben, a fae goblin we've all come to love, and Zander, the polar bear healer, they get his son back and help Tamsin get away once again. This story takes twists and turns resolving a way to get the shifter bureau off Tamsin's back so she can live her life in peace. Angus is vested in this plan as his heart is falling fast for Tamsin and get to the bottom of the plot his deceased mate and idiot brother got killed for. We get to spend time with beloved recurring characters once again: Ben, Zander, Dimitri, the sentient house in New Orleans (oh how I've come to love that house), Lady Aisling and others. We make new friends in a traveling carnival, the uncollared bear Dante, his mate Celene a 1/2 fae and their daughter Brina. We even get to find out the origins of fox shifters in this story. Thank you Jennifer for the ARC of this book for my honest review. I will always be glad to do this service.

The story line was good. The characters were interesting and well developed. The conflict was strong and I liked the surprises along the way. It was slow at times, but I liked it better than Red Wolf. It is set in New Orleans so Jasmine’s haunted house plays a brief roll (YAY!) and Ben is in it, as well as Lady Aisley. I definitely want Ben’s book, it is high time he got his happily ever after. Overall I enjoyed it, but I didn’t devour it like others.

A fun and joyful addition to the series. Seeing a shifter family in a different light. Living on the lamb with a traveling carnival. Also great to see Tiger and Ben. A great addition.
Bookish Owlette More than 1 year ago
This book is not for me. It was exciting, fun and eventful. Just not my thing. Usually I'm into alpha males and active female leads but something just didn't work for me. This is the first book I've read in this long series, so it's safe to say that I was missing something. It wasn't hard to follow what was happening though. As Jennifer gives you a brief intro and background over the characters and events that have transpired. So if this is your first as well, don't worry because you are in safe hands.  If you are into wolves, mates, cute - adorable cubs and some politics thrown in the mix. Then this is the book for you!

Jennifer Ashley always creates a good story. The eleventh book in the Shifter Unbound series, Midnight Wolf is no exception to that rule. Ashley takes us back to the world of shifters, fae and humans interacting together but not really on the same side. A war is brewing and every book seems to be leading up to it. Long time readers of the series will find this one intriguing for a lot of reasons and new readers won't feel like they've missed too much. Great characters, exceptional world building. A great paranormal series and book. What I liked: This is a series I have really enjoyed along the way. Ashley has a way with building a world that is creative, unique and full of surprises. The Shifter Unbound series is based on the premise of the fae creating shifters as battle weapons which got out of hand. Now that the shifters have been exposed to the human population the fae have regained a bit of their power by effectively limiting shifters to 'shiftertowns' and reducing their primal urges by controlling them with collars. This sounds harsh and it is. But doesn't it remind you of how our own culture treats those who are different? It's a paranormal version of our own stupidity in some ways. And I think Ashley does a remarkable job of making her novels entertaining with frighteningly realistic undertones. Angus and Tamsin meet under some unusual circumstances. Angus is being forced to hunt Tamsin down because she is uncollared and has information that the Shifter Bureau wants. It isn't what the tracker would like to be doing with his time, but they are using his son as leverage to make him cooperate. I loved the fact that Tamsin is fierce and strong willed. She is defying the rules by remaining uncollared. You can tell that there is unrest among the shifters over the collar situation and this is just the beginning. She isn't letting the powers that be rule her life and she was an amazing character. I was glad that Ashley gave her a lot of the characteristics you would expect from a fox shifter. Clever, sneaky, and full of sass. Angus is a father to the core. He would do anything to protect his son, even if it means hunting down a woman he eventually falls for. I enjoyed the way Angus and Tamsin not only interact together but also the way they interact with Angus' son. The relationships that develop between them as a family were some of my favorite moments of the story. When Angus gets to the point that he knows he can't turn her in, the adventure begins. I really loved the setting for this book as it doesn't stick to the shiftertowns. There are some big top moments that readers are sure to love. What I didn't like: Personally, I really enjoyed this addition to the series. There isn't much I didn't like, but I understand that for some readers may not like the idea that shifters allowed themselves to be put in this situation in the first place. While agree that, that is true in this series, there were reasons for that, which you learn more about if you read the entire series. This is a stand alone novel but you really miss out on a lot of the background information and world building by not reading the others. I highly recommend them. Good stuff! Bottom Line: This is a good book. Readers who have followed the series for a long time will love revisiting old characters as well as come cool locations. The setting for this one is exception. I really enjoyed being out of shiftertown and on the run. Adventure abounds. Ta

I'm discovering this series from the latest book backwards. I picked this up for review and so enjoyed the story that I'm starting at book 1 and reading more. It's a great world and I so love shifter stories. This world is pretty new to knowing about shifters. Twenty years ago, they were outed to the human world. The Fae created the shifters to fight for them and there have been many a battle. Now they live in shifter towns where they are forced to wear collars that shock them should their aggressive side show. Augus is a tracker. He's forced to track Tamsin because the shifter bureau has his cub. But Tamsin is hard to catch. Of course Augus has an advantage. One that doesn't really become clear until much later but it's there. Tamsin refused the collar and spends her life running to survive. She's different and that could get her killed. But there's something about Augus that makes her trust him. This is fast paced story with lots of protective alpha male from Augus and smart mouthed defiance from Tamsin. Lots of fun there. It's also sexy and hot as they try to resist each other and then try to find time to be alone. That part was actually really fun. Love this world and will definitely be catching up on reading this series.

The eleventh novel in the New York Times bestselling paranormal romance series, Shifters Unbound. Angus Murray, bouncer for a New Orleans Shifter bar, is sent to round up an elusive, Collar-less Shifter woman, Tamsin Calloway, who is causing trouble for Shifter Bureau, and possesses information they want. If Angus refuses, he risks losing his cub. He finds Tamsin but she's slippery and not about to be rounded up quietly. In fact, quiet is nothing Tamsin will ever be. She leads Angus on a wild chase, but he's determined to bring her in to save his son. Can Tamsin convince Angus she's worth helping before she's locked away by Shifter Bureau, Collared, or perhaps killed? Review: I know I am late to the game and this is book number eleven in the series, but I have been meaning to read this Author and am now getting the chance. I was never lost reading this book out of series order. The Author did a great job of getting me acquainted with this world and the cast of characters. I loved that Angus is father, trying to keep his son safe. He is strong and has a great moral compass and of course super attractive. Tamsin is a fighter, she tough and smart, a deadly package. I felt so bad that she has been so alone for so long. Once Angus and Tamsin cross paths, it is all action, romance and fun. I loved the escaping to the carnival part in the story. I thought that was a great idea and enjoyed it, plus it gave Tamsin and Angus time to come together as a couple. I really enjoyed the Author's writing style. She has the right mix elements to make the story engaging and exciting. I now want to go back read the other books in the series. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher*

What another great installment to the series. Midnight Wolf starts off with Angus being forced by the Shifter Bureau to track down a female shifter. They’ve been trying to get their hands on Tamsin, but she’s always eluded their people. So, they kidnap Angus’ cub and force him to use his tracking skills to bring in the woman. However, once he has her, he’s not too keen on turning her over to the sadistic bastards and soon finds himself, Tamsin, and his cub on the run from not only the Shifter Bureau, but other shifters as well. Since they are on the run the entire book, there’s a TON of action and suspense. From growly shifters with the arsenal to get their way, to the corrupt Shifter Bureau, these three were always looking over their shoulders, and planning three steps ahead. Not only were their lives on the line, but Angus’ cub, Ciarian, was in danger, too. Which was something that both Angus and Tamsin took seriously. The bond that Tamsin and Ciarian had was pretty much immediate. Tamsin and Ciarian seemed to have this connection that you would expect from a mother and son. Tamsin obviously looked out for him and would comfort him when he was scared, and Ciarian was very protective of Tamsin. I’m honestly hoping that Ciarian gets his own story down the road. Perhaps with a certain shifter-fae girl he met while traveling with the carnival. I obviously really enjoyed Midnight Wolf. The chemistry was hot (like usual), we got to meet new characters that livened up the party, there was enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat, and we got to see some old favorites as well. I loved getting to see Zander, Rae, Dimitri, Jaycee, Tiger, Ben, and even the Morrissey’s. Even though this is the 11th book in the series, you can totally jump in at any time. I’ve actually been jumping around in the story quite a bit depending on the books I borrow from the library. I actually just finished reading Tiger’s book (5th in the series), and was really excited when he popped up in this one since his story was still fresh in my mind. However, the author does a good job sort of filling in the blanks on the fact that he was created in a lab by humans and therefor a bit different from your average shifter. I really enjoyed this story. I love all the various characters the author brings in, both giving us new characters to fall in love with as well bringing back some favorites. I also like that there’s this massive “battle of the beasts” brewing between the shifters and the Fae. Not to mention the wonderful humans at the Shifter Bureau who feel like shifters are just animals to be dissected and tossed aside. There’s just so much going on that this series has yet to get boring for me. Which is huge since I tend to get bored with a series by the third book. If you’re in the market for a shifter romance, definitely pick up a book from this series.

Exciting and detailed story line MIDNIGHT WOLF is the eleventh full-length novel in Jennifer Ashley’s contemporary, adult SHIFTERS UNBOUND paranormal/ fantasy romance series. This is lupine shifter/tracker Angus Murray, and Tamsin Calloway’s story line. MIDNIGHT WOLF can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but for cohesion and backstory I recommend reading the series in order as there is a continuing arc focusing on the impending war with the Fae. Told from dual third person perspectives (Tamsin and Angus) MIDNIGHT WOLF follows lupine shifter and tracker Angus Murray as he is forced by the Shifter Bureau to track an uncollared shifter of unknown origin. Enter Tamsin Calloway, a rogue, female shifter, and the woman with whom Angus will fall in love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Tamsin and Angus as our couple tries to stay one step ahead of the Shifter Bureau whose intent is to dissect and destroy our story line heroine. Angus Murray is a single father, working as a bouncer when threats against his family force our hero to go on the hunt. With his cub in custody Angus has no choice but to do the Bureau’s bidding, as he searches for the rogue female he knows nothing about. Tamsin Calloway has spent most of her life on the run. Collar-less, and without support of any kind, Tamsin finds herself on the Bureau’s most wanted list for a series of crimes but none more so than the information she keeps secreted in her mind. Meeting Angus Murray never felt so right or so wrong including the maternal feelings that arose when she met Angus’s motherless cub. The relationship between Angus and Tamsin is a forced friendship in order for our heroine to survive. Targeted by the Bureau, and thusly Angus Murray, Tamsin must succumb to her captor or find herself on the receiving end of imprisonment or worse. Falling in love was never on the agenda but a mate bond is claimed by Angus to protect the woman with whom he has fallen in love. The $ex scenes are passionate but limited, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a very large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including the return of Tiger and Carly, Ben, Zander and Rae, Dimitri and Jaycee, Dylan and Sean, as well as the introduction of bear shifter and carnival owner Dante, his mate Celene and their daughter Brina, and Angus’s son Ciaran. The requisite evil has many faces including several members of the Shifter Bureau. The world building continues to focus on the potential war between the shifter and the Fae, but follows the ongoing discrimination of shifters: the laws to collar and control, as well as the segregation and Shiftertowns meant to isolate those deemed different. MIDNIGHT WOLF is an exciting, detailed story line about trust and betrayal, family and friendship, fated mates and happily ever afters. The premise is thrilling and fascination; the characters are colorful, energetic and inspiring; the romance is intimate and animated. MIDNIGHT WOLF is a welcome addition to Jennifer Ashley’s Shifters Unbound- a cross-country journey as fated mates stay one step ahead of a potential take down and catastrophic danger to all involved.

Midnight Wolf is my first Shifter Unbound novel, but as a recent fan of Jennifer Ashley, I had to scold myself from not finding this series sooner! This paranormal read has a unique flavor that puts a spin on life as a shifter. Shifters are Collared like pets and relegated to Shiftertowns where they have little freedoms and face much prejudice from scared humans. A Shifter Bureau agent contacts black wolf, Angus Murray, to track and subdue an Uncollared shifter by the name of Tamsin Calloway. This special female has secrets that Shifter Bureau wants and she'll do anything to convince Angus not to give her up. Midnight Wolf is a humorous, action-packed paranormal romance that keeps you engaged and waiting on edge for the next amazing event to happen. Even if I haven't read the previous novels of the series, I can tell each one is probably full of revelations about this world occupied by fae, humans, shifters, and any other kinds of magical creatures. I loved Tamsin because she's a strong, humble heroine who has risked everything to remain free. When her heart is on the line she has even more to lose, but this chick knows how to make the right choices. It's fun reading how she easily fits into any situation and draws close to people how are virtually strangers. I have to say, this might be the most light-hearted paranormal romance I've ever read and I'm definitely looking forward to more! *ARC provided via First to Read in consideration for review*
