I love these naughty cats and I can’t wait to meet the rest! It’s a collection of two novellas to be read in order. Tidbits of information and appearances of the other characters we will meet in this series pop up seamlessly during the action. Through the entire book it shows us the love Raphael and Ashe have for each other.
You get the explanation of the Legend of the Pantera, lots of action, and of course lots of sex between Raphael and Ashe. It has been made obvious this is not their first meeting and they have a love blooming between them.
“Dazzling. Electric. Stunning her with an instant need that made her pussy clench with anticipation.
She squirmed beneath him, pressing the aching tips of her breasts against the heat of his chest. Oh god. It felt so good. “
There is less sex in this part of the book and we get to see what’s going on through Parish’s and Julia’s eyes. This book is more playful as we get taken into the Pantera land. Julia needs a little time to heal after a bad break up but of course it being a novella not a lot of time can be spared. The playfulness between them made it feel a lot less of just jumping into bed with a hot man cat. And even though the pace was slower it was a lovely read and I was swept up into this new magical land.
“Your pussy’s like a ripe peach, juice running down your leg.” Once again, he dropped his head, but this time he ran his tongue up her inner thigh.
Julia nearly came right then. His tongue. It wasn’t smooth like a human’s. It was slightly rough, like a…
“Cat,” he said with a grin, lapping at just the edges of her sex. “So sweet. Christ, I think I’ll drown in you.”
While Raphael’s book was flaming hot and action packed Parish’s book is more sensational. Both stories are brilliantly written and I love them both. I can’t wait for the next installment April 15th! The 3rd book in the series is scheduled to release July 9th. I hope all the cats to get enjoy their cream. =)
New Year. New World. New Species.

Unable to resist, he takes her to his bed, and is shocked when she becomes pregnant with his child. It’s a miracle that might prove to be the salvation of his people, but only if he can keep her safe from the mercenaries determined to kill her.

But with the prized and risky Pantera birth on the way, puma shifter, Parish must travel to New Orleans to find and bring back a human doctor. The moment he sees the lovely, talented and all too human Dr. Julia Cabot he cannot resist the wild, potent drive to make her his.
