Seduction's Shift

A.C. Arthur

They hide their true nature from the world—part man and part animal—sworn to defend the human race against the untamed beasts among them…

She was his first love, his only love. But trying to rescue his beautiful Ary from captivity is one wild risk no man should take. Luckily, Nick Delgado is no ordinary man. His work in the urban jungle as a high-powered litigator has only fueled his ferocity, enflamed his passion—and sharpened his claws—to protect his mate.

Ary is a born healer who has devoted her life to the tribe—and her heart to Nick. But when the fierce and sadistic Sabar turns his jaguar eyes upon her, Ary becomes the unwilling pawn in a deadly game of shifting alliances. One man wants to use her talents to enslave humanity. The other wants to free her from their natural enemy. If Nick hopes to save Ary, he must unleash the beast within—and fight for the woman he loves…

Seduction’s Shift is book two in The Shadow Shifters series by A.C. Arthur. Each book in this series is about a different couple but also caries a main theme throughout so it would be better to read the books in order. This book centers on one of Rome’s second in command, Dominick (Nick) Delgado and Ary, a healer that grew up in a remote village in the Brazilian rain forest. Nick and Ary had been watching each other, flirting, both still teenagers. Ary was already training to be a healer, her future forever tied to the village. When the relationship between Nick and Ary crossed a line, the parents of both thought it best if Nick went away. And he did. But neither ever forgot the other. You see, both are jaguar shifters, a member of the Shadow Shifters. In their village it is believed that there is one fated mate intended for each of them. Both Nick and Ary knew that is what they were. But that didn’t stop Nick from doing what he was told was best, leaving. Now it is sixteen years later. Ary has been kidnapped. Nick and his leader, Rome and several others have flown out from where they live in the states to help to rescue Ary. Their reunion is not the romantic reunion one might imagine. Ary is furious. Nick left her, never to be heard from again, sixteen long years ago. When it becomes evident that those that Ary should have been able to trust to protect her were the ones that put her in danger all along, Nick takes Ary back to his home in Washington, D.C. But, the dangerous man responsible for her abduction, Saber Tavares, is also back in the states. “He’d simply walked away and never looked back. Through some great divine intervention he’d been granted a second chance, and he didn’t want to mess it up.” Saber is an evil power hungry rogue shifter. He wants to control both the shifter world and the human world. He will do whatever it takes to accomplish both, killing what or who ever gets in his way. He needed Ary to help him with a synthetic drug he is trying to create. Now that he has lost her, he’s just mad, and he will get his revenge. I really loved this one. Nick and Ary steamed up the pages. Shifters have a very amorous nature. Ary spent her life under the strict thumb of her father, dictating her life. Nick is kind of an angry, over bearing man. He wants to protect Ary but she is fighting against him every step of the way. She just got out from under her father’s thumb, now Nick wants to rule her life? Nick can’t get her to seem to understand how much danger she is in but Ary just wants freedom. As much as I loved these two and understood where Ary was coming from, her continued persistence in fighting Nick’s attempts to keep her safe did get on my nerves a little bit. But as the book progresses, you can see her adjusting to her new life and to Nick. And at the same time, see Nick easing up and trying harder to understand Ary’s needs. There is plenty of intense action in this one as well as Saber tries time and time again to take down Rome, Nick, and their mates. In this book we also see the birth of Havenway, the new compound which will house the shifters. I can’t wait for the next book, Passion’s Prey, as we will get to know Rome’s other second in command, Xavier, and Nick’s sister, Caprise, who has obviously been keeping secrets. The fight to stop the evil Saber will continue. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Plot and Story Line  Seductions Shift is a story that I wouldn’t recommend as a stand alone. From what I can tell, this series is connected, and even though you could read it out of order, you might get a bit lost especially at the beginning if you haven’t read the first book. At the end of the first book, Ary gets kidnapped. The beginning of Seduction’s Shift is the rescue and trying to destroy Saber. Saber is one sick creature, oh man, did I want him to die in this one. I mean he has a temper, he was taken as a boy by a man more evil than him, and corrupted, and now there is nothing redeemable about it any longer. We see two sides of the plot in this story. It is written in third person (Thank goodness), but we also have a few times where it switches to Saber and his “plans”. The focus of the story is Nick and Ary reconnecting and trying to work out mistrust and past hurts and betrayals, and all the while trying to bring Saber down. There is a bit of a powerful mystery aspect in play here, and we have some truths revealed, and a hint of the next couple in the next book. Oh I can just see a explosion of tempers going to explode soon. What I want to focus on is the love story. They definitely have no problems in the “sexual activities” in their relationship….it is fiery HOT!! But we also see a centered focus on them rebuilding their relationship, learning to love and trust again. I loved the tension that builds between them and the interactions…especially in the beginning, is quite hilarious, because really…they need lessons in communicating effectively. But they eventually learn…just takes quite a bit of time to accomplish. But what fun I had with this pair. The Cover  I really like this cover, with the red and gold colors, the imprint of a leopard, and the back of one sexy hunky male….I could keep him hehe. Overall View  Seduction’s Shift is a blazing hot paranormal romance, that sizzles and burns, it is a tale of reconnecting, a dangerous enemy to defeat, and a passion that builds the bridges to love….A SEXY SHIFTER ROMANCE!!

Posted on Romancing the Books blog / Reviewed by Molly / Review Copy Provided by the Publisher / Woohoo! I was so excited to get this book and read it. I loved A.C. Arthur’s first book in this series, TEMPTATION RISING, and I couldn’t wait to jump into this one! Once again, Ms. Arthur has truly proven amazing in her paranormal romance skills. She blends the perfect amount of romance with a suspenseful plot line, the hot shifting jaguars, and the women who love them. Sabar Tavres is a fabulously created character! A true villian in all sense of the word, and really adds the suspenseful elements to the story. Kidnapping is his game and he will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. The intensity of his character really pulled me into the heart of the story. Though I didn’t like this villainous ways, I loved his character in the story for he really needed to be portrayed that way he was to make the story round out. Aryiola “Ary” Seriono is a healer and a wonderfully created one at that! I felt her emotions and her struggles as if they were my own. The heart pounding intensity was added when she worked against Sabar to gain her freedom. Following her story and becoming her for a time, was an awesome experience! She’s an independent woman and one that will steal your heart quickly! Dominick ‘Nick’ Delgado is powerful man. He’s a jaguar shifter, and Roman Reynolds’ business partner. And he’s longed for one woman, his mate, for years. When his mate’s life is compromised, following him on his mission of saving her was full of twists, turns, ups and downs of a paranormal roller coaster ride! SEDUCTION’S SHIFT is a wonderful installment to this amazing series! I love it! We get glimpses of Roman and Kalina (yay! Totally loved them in book 1!), and we get another intense plot line. This joy ride is one that you don’t want to miss. It’s intense, sexy and oh-so-sizzling! Each page turn brought something new, and by the end, I was not looking forward to saying goodbye. I wanted it to go on and on. I am looking forward the third installment, PASSION’S PREY, Xavier’s story. Well done, once again, Ms. Arthur!!

As a avid reader of paranormal romance, having AA heroes and heroines is the answer to my "reading jones"! And the second installment did not disappoint. I am A.C. Arthur's next biggest fan.

Went to BN last night & the rep told me there was an issue with the publisher. I unarchived it today and the text is there. So far it is a good read.

Same thing here. I ordered it, but nothing. Have not called customer service yet; but I will today. 7.99 is nothing to play with. I could buy me a daily double meal at Mcdonalds and still have a little change left over!!!!!

I waited months for the book to come out and when I buy it on my nook there's nothing there. I was on the phone with costumer services and they told that I would have to wait 5 to 10 days before they would fix the problem.... just give me a refund and I would go buy the paper version.

Just like the previous post said: there's nothing there! There's no book. I was really looking forward to the second book, especially since I paid for it several months ago.

And customer service was no help at all. I can read it online, I can read it on my phone, but I even deleted the stupid book and paid for it AGAIN, and I still can't read it on my Nook. Lovely.
