Book Description

Luc Lazare doesn’t need more complications in his life.  And Skye Cross, the intriguing woman able to communicate with animals, is the last thing he wants.  Too bad his body disagrees. But he’s trying to save his shapeshifting family from being forced into the battle arena, and that means protecting the shifters responsible for stealing Skye's brother’s soul. Even as she demands his help, he’ll have to resist the pull of temptation.
 
Skye’s most recent animal rescue assignment involves saving canines involved in primal battles.  Her investigation leads her to Luc, a man whose powers unsettle but intrigue her. Luc lures her into a dark encounter, and realizes that the animals engaging in these battles aren’t dogs at all, they’re wild predators. Skye finds herself caught in a dangerous world she never knew existed while relying on a man she couldn’t possibly trust.
 
In a world where everything--and nothing--is as it seems, can Luc and Skye find a way to overcome the odds that are destined to keep them apart?

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique paranormal romance and suspense... November 30, 2013
By ZR1000
Format:Kindle Edition
Someone is forcing shifters in their animal form to fight against wild dogs and many die in the arena. Their bodies are later found in their human form, victims of gruesome animal attacks, setting the authorities to investigate what they believe are human deaths.

Skye Cross and her brother Shade are different from other people. They can communicate psychically with each other and animals. The reasons why they can do this they don't know until Shade is killed and comes back as a ghost and they seek the answer in their family history. Shade's spirit can't move on so he is helping his sister solve his murder and stop the animal fighting which are both connected.

Luc Lazare, a panther shifter, is a human shifter hybrid. He is looking into the animal fighting that has cost him a dear friend. He is torn between two worlds, not fully a part of either. He meets Skye and becomes her protector; he owes her for her brother died to save his human mother. There is an irresistible pull between the two of them which Skye refers to as "animal magnetism", he has it in spades and she responds to it. But they are from different worlds, from bloodlines that have been enemies throughout the ages. As they work together to find answers they realize that there is more than just animal attraction between them, they like who each other is and though they both fight the temptation they want more. Sometimes when two different worlds collide it is meant to be.

This book has so much to it; mystery, suspense, paranormal shifters, a ghost, descendants of fallen angels, descendants of the protectors against evil, and romance. Quite an interesting and unique world this author describes. This reader was enthralled and couldn't stop reading. There is lots of action with strong interesting characters and some delightful repartee. Would have liked an epilogue and more about the heroine's bloodline.

Title: Animal Instincts
Series: N/A
Author: Patricia Rosemoor
Genre: Romance
Blurb: Luc Lazare doesn’t need more complications in his life. And Skye Cross, the intriguing woman able to communicate with animals, is the last thing he wants. Too bad his body disagrees. But he’s trying to save his shapeshifting family from being forced into the battle arena, and that means protecting the shifters responsible for stealing Skye's brother’s soul. Even as she demands his help, he’ll have to resist the pull of temptation. Skye’s most recent animal rescue assignment involves saving canines involved in primal battles. Her investigation leads her to Luc, a man whose powers unsettle but intrigue her. Luc lures her into a dark encounter, and realizes that the animals engaging in these battles aren’t dogs at all, they’re wild predators. Skye finds herself caught in a dangerous world she never knew existed while relying on a man she couldn’t possibly trust. In a world where everything--and nothing--is as it seems, can Luc and Skye find a way to overcome the odds that are destined to keep them apart?
Thoughts: This title never really seemed to find its footing with me. There never seemed to be quite enough romance, never quite enough suspense, just never quite enough to anything - there seemed to be a whole lot going on, yet it was all over the map, which made it really hard to decide where the author was trying to go with it. I felt disconnected from not only the story, but the characters as well. In one set of characters, we have more of a background and insight into their relationship, but a distinct lack of emotion - in another, we have all the emotion, but a lack of background and insight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Animal Instincts by Patricia Rosemoor January 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading the synopsis for Animal Instincts I was eager to dive in. Patricia Rosemoor has written a shifter story, calling them the Kindred, with a history differing from any I've heard before. In many ways her explanation of how shifters came to be was more more believable than others I've read.

The story is about a powerful Kindred family whose secret place in the community has been discovered due to fights-to-the-death between shifters being organized by someone within their Company. Because the bodies of the shifters that lose are being left behind (and have transformed back to their human state) and found, a homicide investigation by the police began. Shade Cross is the detective in charge of the investigation. His twin sister Skye Cross, an animal rescuer also becomes involved. Shade and his sister Skye are able to read each others thoughts over a psychic connection.

Luc Lazare, the half-human son of the Boss and Security Director for The Company also becomes directly involved in investigating who is responsible for these fights when his close childhood friend is forced to fight to her death. Things become even more entangled when he realizes Shade and his sister, Nuala, are having a relationship. Especially since he and Skye seem to also have a strong "animal" attraction difficult for either of them to ignore.

To avoid detection, and to feed his hate for Luc, the fights organizer decides to kill off the people close to him. His friend Jez is first. When he goes after Luc's mother, Slade is shot and killed protecting her. This instills Skye with even more motivation to find out who the responsible party is and solve her brother's murder with the help of Slade's partner, Ethan.
