Cover Description:

Jace is tall, dark and handsome. He’s also a super rare tiger shifter, with orange eyes and a keen sense of justice that has him constantly on the hunt for the worst criminals in the shifter world. When a particular case brings him in contact with a beautiful, vulnerable woman needing rescue, he has no choice but to step in and offer protection. But the longer he spends time with Amber, the more he isn’t sure he can ever let her go. And that’s dangerous for a man in his position.

Amber never expected to be in this situation. An average woman working on her degree in special education, she has no idea who would kidnap and target her. She only knows that the hot, leather-wearing man who rescued her and is now guarding her is the sexiest thing she’s ever seen. And somehow, he seems to want her too. If only he wasn’t holding back so many secrets, maybe they could actually have a chance…

As Jace and Amber work to discover who is behind it all, they find themselves drawn closer, into hot kisses and hotter nights. But as much as Jace is coming to realize that Amber might be his mate, he also knows his life is too dangerous for someone as precious as her to be in it. Somehow he has to stay focused and keep them both safe, even if the only target he truly wants to capture is her heart.

Read on for my thoughts on A Tiger’s Bounty.  No true spoilers, promise.

Jace is a successful bounty hunter.  As a tiger shifter, he works mainly in private for other shifter clients to bring in the most dangerous criminals.  Right now he’s on a case that should be wrapped up in the next few minutes – until he discovers that the scumbag he’s after also has a woman held captive in the apartment.  A woman who draws him in at first sight.

I enjoyed Amber and Jace’s romance in A Tiger’s Bounty.  It’s full of suspense, fast action scenes and a steamy, hot sexual attraction between them – as in burning up the sheets hot.  It doesn’t take Jace long to realize that this beautiful woman is his mate, a mate that he feels completely unworthy of and tries to keep her away  – for her own good of course.  *rolls eyes*  Alpha Men!  Amber has never really had much self-confidence.  She is definitely curvy and just doesn’t see herself as the beauty that Jace does.  She also has no clue about the shifter world that lives right alongside of the human world that she is from.  Jace is overprotective and pushes Amber away – until he comes to his senses and her rescue.

There is only one thing that took me off guard.  These characters can speak when they are shifted into their animal.  That took a little bit of getting used to.  Not a bad thing, just not what I’m accustomed to in shifter stories.

A Tiger’s Bounty is the first of a trilogy of three tiger shifter brothers.  This story has a lot of very intense sexual scenes.  Keep that in mind before you pick up this story if that bothers you.  I would not hesitate to recommend this story to anyone who loves hot shifter romances.
