—Romance Junkies on Revelation

Book Description

Gibson was born to enforce jamboree law. When a meeting with another clan ends in a hail of bullets, the female who saves him connects on a level deeper than blood. But she’s from a family his own has harmed grievously.
The last thing Mia Porter needs in her life is a gruff, bossy alpha cat like Gibson. Yet more attacks keep throwing them together. Neither can deny their attraction. And they must stand together and fight a growing threat against their families, their jamboree—their lives.

Grade A- 5 star reading.

It is also great to see Mia as so strong, and tough and yet wanting a strong man acting protectively.

This was a great fast paced read.

Beneath the Skin
Reviewed by Francesca & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

Heeeeellloooooooooo sexy! Gibson De La Vega is the Bringer of the De La Vega jamboree. Basically he is in charge of justice and protecting his cats. When is faced with a rogue group of cats that entered the territory without permission and he sends them packing, he is attacked and shot at with silver bullets.
Mia Porter just happens to be around when he gets shot and she feels compelled to help him and save his life. Even though she didn't know who he was. Of course that doesn't make things easier once she finds out. The Porter and De La Vega family have old beef with each other. They are NOT friends.
Now Mia's life is also in danger for helping him and he feels an overpowering need to protect her. She tough, ex military, and very much a kick ass heroine. She was attacked by shifter-hater group and is still recovering from her injuries, and may not ever completely heal, but she is still pushing through. When confronted with yet another group after her, no matter that it's because of a De La Vega, she wants to help.

Gibson is deliciously protective, sexy as sin, with his dreadlocks, nipple rings, tats, and oh my! Wicked! He wasn't looking to imprint but their relationship just happened so naturally that it was the only thing that made sense. No matter that their families kind of hated each other. No matter that she is not a female he can leave home away from danger. He respects her and lets her do her job. And she in turn does that same for him.
Cade from Cascadia has a little cameo appearance in this book which was nice. Renee, Jack and Galen are also an important part of this book, since Gibson is very involved with his family. As far as conflict goes, there wasn't a whole lot of action, but the story was still interesting with an unexpected twist at the end. Very much an enjoyable and sexy read.

LOVED this book. I have read a lot of not very well written erotica this week but this woman is an erotica wizard with the genre. If you want to learn how to write great erotic scenes and relationships, sit at her feet. Seriously, the great thing about shifters (aside from the rapid healing and need for a great many calories) is that they have a highly felt animal nature which lets them be less inhibited about sex, not about sharing their mate, but just about sex. And Ms. Dane is not at all inhibited about writing truly hot, passionate sex.

That the relationship here is as respectful, and that Gibson and Mia are so adult and firm in their articulation of wants and needs even give Ms. Dane the freedom to use words I would normally not enjoy in erotic passages. She also does a good job with contemporary vernacular, at least to my not "down with it" self (I still say "groovy"). At the same time there is a formal language associated with pack business that she uses consistently.

It is also great to see Mia as so strong, and tough and yet wanting a strong man acting protectively. People are complex and have quirks like this which makes Ms. Danes characters more real.

This is the third in the series, but I didn't feel the back story was lacking, nor that she did a "previously in the de La Vega Cats,...). While living within the series structure the story stood well on its own.

This is a hot and romantic story that will possibly make you hot and bothered!

Gibson de La Vega is the Bringer for his jamboree and it's a responsibility he takes very seriously. He is the one who makes sure that their laws are followed and he hands out justice when those laws are broken. After a meeting with members of another jamboree where Gibson handed out a fair ruling for their misbehavior, he finds himself shot and with silver to make it worse.

Mia Porter is a cat in the de La Vega jamboree but her family does very little with it due to bitterness and bad relations between the Porter's and the de La Vegas. Of course, when Mia found the injured Gibson she knew he was a cat and helped him, it only came out later who he was and then he found out who she was. Talk about an awkward moment.

Even with that painful meeting, awareness surrounded both Mia and Gibson. With their families past, you would think it would go no farther but Mia and Gibson soon find out that the past between their families isn't nearly enough to keep them apart. Finding the cats that hurt him becomes Gibson's primary goal, especially when they go after Mia too. Shooting Gibson just makes him pissed off; shooting Mia makes Gibson deadly serious about finding and stopping those cats. As the search goes on, Gibson and Mia discover that the cause of this attack on the de La Vega's jamboree might be closer than anyone expected. Several past incidents come full circle by the time Gibson and Mia have a chance to see if their passion is the forever kind.

A shot of silver brings together two hearts that not even past hurts can keep apart in Beneath the Skin. Mia and Gibson have to not only defeat a serious challenge to their jamboree but also the hurtful past between their families before they can explore their future together.
