~A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

A lion’s pride isn’t defined only by those he commands but also resides with his hair, so when a human dares to butcher Arik’s mane, he gets his revenge—and claims her as his mate.

A billionaire CEO and leader of the largest East Coast pride, Arik is a ladies man and a lion. Used to commanding others, and obedience, he can’t believe it when a hairdresser with tempting curves chops off a hunk of his precious mane. But her biggest mistake is in running from him.

Run as fast as you can, little mouse, because this cat loves to chase—and pounce.

Oh, and he also likes to nibble on tender bits. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for a human woman, a woman who can make the impossible happen because everyone knows lions can’t purr…until now.

I loved this book. Be warned that although it is only 147 pages it is worth it.

Another fun shifter romance from Eve Langlais. I really enjoyed Arik. He's everything I picture a lion to be - proud, arrogant, sure of himself, and used to being in charge. Watch him chase after Kira was amusing and his lion was all in a fuss about finally finding his mate. The pride's reaction to this whole ordeal was amazing! I loved the "catty" aspect of the other lions and Arik's mother was a riot. Kira, I just couldn't quite warm up to. She had a great personality and I loved her independence, but she took that independence a little too far. She crossed briefly into the too stupid category when it came to her ex and that's something that can really be a downer in a story for me. The romance was sweet, there were such a great example of getting everything you never wished for and loving it. There was just enough action to really push things along, but not so much that it was overwhelming. I think Eve Langlais is going to have another winner in this series.

Eve Langlais brings fantasy to a believable level! The tension between the the main characters makes you wish you were them instead! And then gives you ideas for you to incorporate into your own life! Plus, sets the next book up and leaves you drooling for more! Being a Leo as it is makes me want and love that bite on the neck!

This was not a good book. It has a promising premise and sigh-worthy cover but the characters are very one-dimensional and the dialogue is very pat. I am all for having romance heroines who are not 18 year-old perfect-bodied virgins, but the main character, Kirra, is lazy and stupid! She has no redeeming qualities. The "steamy" scenes are very pedestrian and lacking in heat or imagination. Just not good at all.

This was an amusing light-hearted and humors read. When an Alpha Purrs is book one in A Lion’s Pride series by Eve Langlais. I loved how the story started off. We dive into some very fun banter between our hero and heroine. It’s comical from the first line and just keeps getting better. The verbal teasing/sparing our leads do, adds to the story and sexual tension. We get just the right amount of sexiness to keep things fascinating. Kira is a hairdresser and is running from her past, but as most things go our past always seams to catch up with us. Arik is described beautifuly by the heroine. He’s arrogant, sexiest and pompous, but oh so fun to read about. He soon decides he wants more from this spunky hairdresser. When an Alpha Purrs is an amusing read that’s uncomplicated and makes you giggle. I read it in one sitting and I’m looking forward to continue A Lion’s Pride series, especially after the set up left for the next couple. Rated: 3.5 Stars

Different than the normal paranormal romance books I normally read but a good book. Author has a funny and entertaining way to her story telling that made the book a quick and enjoyable read. The book definitely has the whole alpha male finding his mate and declaring her MINE that is common in PNR and shifter books but what it does lack is the sexual heat I have become acustom to in other writer's books. This does not take away from the story at all however. Found the book very entertaining and will be reading more from this author.

Thought it was written well and a mindless read. Felt the story lacked emotion; intenseness. There were many humorous moments, which made the book worthy of a read. For a shapeshifting story, thought it was okay. Will admit that one of my favorite characters is his mother.

Mrs Langlais books are exciting and action packed from the very first page till the very unexpected last page.

It was a good read, kind of predictable but made me laugh a few times.

This book was short and sweet. Kira's inner dialog had me laughing out loud. I just wish it was a little longer & more in depth.

An alphabet of attributes… Arrogant/Attractive, Braggart/Bold, Chauvinist/Courageous... Eve Langlais has a way with writing witty tales that leave me grinning and laughing. They are also full of spunky heroines, alpha males, a touch of suspense and downright feel good moments. When an Alpha Purrs sparks the trail of laughter’s tears right from the get go. When hot and arrogant CEO, Arik barges into Kira’s grandfather’s hairdressing salon insinuating that she in all her femaleness isn’t good enough to cut his hair in her grandfather’s absence let’s just say he got her dander up. When he compounded the error of his ways with a bit of sexual harassment he pushed this hairdresser just a bit too far. Snip!… and she ran like the hounds of hell were on her tail. While not exactly right, she certainly had one angry lion ready to pounce and exact his revenge. When Arik decides exacting physical retribution isn’t quite what would give him the most satisfaction and that he would much rather prove just how wrong she is in declaring she isn’t in the least interested in him, things take on a very heated and interesting spin. But after a very hot interlude of dinner and foreplay all pretenses that their evening will end up between the sheets is shoved rudely and abruptly to the side when Kira discovers her stalker ex has followed her across the country and left her very graphic and crude messages written in blood upon her door. Arik realizes there is a major juxtaposition between the in your face stubborn and mischievous female that is so totally in your face with her humor and sarcasm and the one that reeks of fear when faced with the graffiti on her door. Every protective instinct is engaged. No one threatens what is his. And this woman is definitely his, even if she doesn’t know it yet. So while the laughs and sexy times continue as Arik does his best to corral his human lover, the search for the threat to her very existence takes on a decidedly earnest bent. Because things could not possibly be as simple as a deranged human stalker. Discovering her ex is a werewolf interloper in his city has one alpha’s mane in a total dither. Feel very sorry for one mangy deranged wolf… or maybe not because this evil cur has earned whatever is coming to him. Besides a very engaging romance, When an Alpha Purrs gives you a very good introduction to some very entertaining secondary characters. Enough so that I didn’t exactly wait to skip right into the second, third and fourth books in the series immediately after reading each of the previous. In fact, I stayed up and read them all in one sitting. I couldn’t even be bothered to break to write each review. Hence, why the reviews will all be done in short order one after the other. If I have one complaint it is that at this time the author has no plans to continue the series after book four, A Tiger’s Bride. Because darn it they are really that good. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****

Reviewed by Suzanne and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog Arik is used to the ladies swooning at his feet, he is after all a billionaire, not to mention sexy (if he does say so himself) and the alpha of the Lion’s pride. So, when he deigns to allow sassy, curvy and gorgeous hairdresser Kira near his luscious locks, he doesn’t expect her to maim his beautiful hair. He may have said a few things he shouldn’t, but he can’t help himself, watching her getting riled up gets him all riled up in the best way and she definitely shouldn’t have run… now all he wants to do is chase her. What does a gorgeous billionaire lion do when his hairdresser chops off his mighty mane? Well Eve Langlais shows us exactly what the consequences are in When an Alpha Purrs and I have to admit, I am thinking about changing careers and finding a lion shifter to provoke with my (sadly lacking) hairdressing skills. This book was sexy and funny and I had a great time reading it. So why didn’t I rate it higher I hear you twitter? Well, as much as I enjoyed it, and I have no compunction in saying that it made me laugh, I liked the main characters and I look forward to reading the next one, it also didn’t rock my world; it barely tilted it. There are a lot of PNRs out there, and quite a few of them give you this great mix of humour and romance and as much as I liked When an Alpha Purrs it didn’t do anything to stand out from the crowd. But, as I mentioned I very much look forward to reading the next in the series, there’s always room on my shelf for funny and sexy and that is exactly what When an Alpha Purrs delivers.
