Passion's Prey (Shadow Shifters Series #3) by A. C. Arthur

They live in the shadows—half human, half beast—a powerful breed of shape-shifters who protect the civilized world from the deadliest of their kind…

Caprise is tall, beautiful, exotic. A goddess in the flesh. A dancer, when Caprise takes the stage, she feels the power she holds over men—especially the man known as X. He watches her night after night. He follows her with hungry eyes. And he knows her deepest, darkest secret—her true animal nature…

And falling in love with a Shadow Shifter is the most dangerous game of all.

Xavier has always lived for the thrill of the hunt—and the pleasure of the kill. But now, as a shifter working for the FBI, he is dedicated to keeping a leash on the world's most savage predators. Keeping an eye on a gorgeous creature like Caprise is part of his job. But when a deadly new breed of half-human killer marks Caprise as his mate, Xavier must fight tooth and claw to save her—or risk losing the most sensual and exciting woman he's ever known…

A.C. Arthur has done it again. The Shadow Shifter series continues to amaze me. This is another great read. This series has taken us from the streets to the jungle and back again. I am in love with family of jaguar shifters and I hope we keep getting more. Caprise is a shifter running from who and what she is. She is also running from a past she doesn’t want anyone to know about. She is a shifter who cannot embrace that part of her life. To take her mind away from her issues, she dances. She is an exotic dancer who owns the minds of men when she is on stage. Xavier is a FBI agent who is deadly to anyone is sets out to hurt those he cares about. He is the man who is tasked by Caprise’s brother Nick to keep an eye on her and eyeing her is what he does very well. Caprise and Xavier have a very HOT relationship. It sizzles and their story burns up the pages of this book. Keeping in line with the other books in this series, the book has intrigue, hotness, sexy shifters and a devious mastermind. Passion’s Prey is an excellent read. The storyline is well written. It has believable plot, great storyline flow and terrific character interaction. This is a 5 star read and we HIGHLY recommend it. Do yourself a huge favor and pick up all of the books in this series. Tasha, Divas of the Serengeti Book Club

Loved this series. There was something constantly going on and I couldn't wait to get to the next book. My only disappointment is Passion's Prey left me hanging. There are so many open questions. I didn't think I would like reading about shadow shifters but this piqued my curiosity. A. C. Arthur you need to continue this series so the loose ends can be tied up. This series was extremely enjoyable. Hopefully there will be a #4 to this series but don't make rush it.

It carried a very weak story line. It basically was X and Caprise. The rest was just a minor backlot story. It got repetitive of X saying its temporary and Caprise whining. It's not her best work. I enjoyed the first 2 very much but this one lacked a solid story. It was all over the place and nothing solid.

Reviewed by Guest Reviewer/Jessica & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog “If you’re in the mood for some hot shifters who can kick ass, pick up this series, just make sure it’s in order.” ~Under the Covers Passion’s Prey is the third installment in The Shadow Shifters series and while I found myself very interested in the world that Ms. Arthur created, I felt a bit lost. But of course that is my fault, because I haven’t read the first two in this series. So before you even pick this up, I recommend you read this series in order so this world can flow the way it should. Although I was lost, I enjoyed this world. These shadow shifters are half human and half cat species. They range from Tigers to cheetahs and they are quite powerful and beautiful. They’re pretty much shape shifters and they live in our world to protect not only their own species but the humans as well from the Rogues that have separated from their tribe. In Passion’s Prey the story of X and Caprise is very full of…. well….. Passion. These two are stubborn, hard and strong willed and when they collide it’s not sparks, It’s fireworks! X is an FBI agent and his latest job is to watch over Caprise who’s life is in danger. And while X is comfortable in his Shadow shifter skin, Caprise is not and she does everything she can to deny her fate and live like a human. So when X finds her stripping at a local strip club he can’t help but want to take her away from it all. He’s just not sure if it’s because he wants to save her or screw the crap out of her. What makes it even worse? Caprise is the sister of X’s best friend. But that sure doesn’t stop them from getting it on all over the place! Caprise and X seem to share similar dark pasts and man is it heavy. Their stories will at least have you raising your eyebrows in utter disgust and shock. It’s not your typical girl saves guy or guy saves girl, these two save each other which puts them on even ground. They end up having mutual respect for one another and that makes their relationship strong. Besides all that, Passion’s Prey is a great world that is involved with the FBI and all that good stuff. These shifters are in this world of ours and we don ‘t even know it. They’re kick ass no nonsense guys so if you’re in the mood for some hot shifters who can kick ass, pick up this series, just make sure it’s in order. *ARC provided by publisher

OMG is all I could say after reading the third installment to the Shadow Shifters' series. At the end of Seduction's Shift readers knew the next shifter to fall was the sexy and mysterious FBI agent Xavier or as known to his friends X. Everyone realized it would take a strong woman to capture this jaguar's heart and who better to take up the gauntlet but none other than Nick's sister Caprise. Sparks and instant attraction were recognized initially in Seduction's Shift and continue throughout the pages of Passion's Prey until readers will need a pitcher of ICE COLD water when starting this story. X and Caprise's story will bring several emotions and will have readers cheering and celebrating this couple's journey to love. There were some hilarious scenes in this story and some off the chain love scenes. Ms. Arthur did an outstanding job in developing X's and Caprise's relationship by allowing readers to experience and feel the pain each carried with them. Readers will fall in love with X and fall even more in love with this series. Excellent read.

Ok if you thought book 1 Temptation Rising and book 2 Seduction's Shift was good then hold on to your hat because Passion's Prey will have you in total reading bliss. OMG Xavier and Caprise story was off the chain good!! Both X and Caprise are from two different worlds and both have passes they don't want to confront. There tolerance level for one another is very low until the night they took things to the next level. Passion Prey's is full of drama, action and hot steamy love scenes. So Shifters fans get ready for one heck of a ride because you are truly in for a treat. As always A.C. job well done!!
