Book Description

A shapeshifter and a wizard slugging it out, an alien world and a hell-horse...

Jockey Camryn O’Sullivan is an alcoholic on a downward spiral after the death of her husband. When aliens kidnap her, she’s both terrified and reluctantly fascinated by Ryman Coppersmith. She’s positive the weird attraction to her abductor is an anomaly. Something to ignore. She’ll train the aliens’ horse and they’ll return her home. Simple. There’s no need for sex or a stubborn male kitty-cat to replace the precious memories of her husband.

Murder. Betrayal. Banishment.

Feline shapeshifter Ry has experienced treachery of the worst kind. When his foster brother—the man who betrayed him—proposes a wager on a hell-horse race, the lure to clear his name is irresistible.

Camryn’s arrival triggers a jump in his already overactive sex drive. It’s a struggle to keep his hands off his beautiful captive. Something in his mysterious feline background compels him to chase her and the passion firing between them soars out of control. Ry doesn’t understand the mechanics of their attraction but knows he can’t afford to lose Camryn…despite his promise to return her home.

This is a good book. A little warning though this book was previously released under Ellora's Cave AEON with the title House of the Cat. Luckily the blurb struck a chord and I remembered I have the previous version :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Story! I rate it 3.5 July 7, 2014
By Julie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first book by this author and thought the story was good. The reason I gave it a 3.5 is because the story was slow and to me it didn't flow smoothly. Camryn was this great jocky and horse trainer, but it just didn't come through that way. When it did it was a little bit unbelievable. However, I will try to buy and read another of her latest books. Keep writing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing! March 22, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the my first book by Shelley Munro and I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to reading more from her. With that being said I felt that I was missing out on something in the beginning of the book. The first few pages of the book grabbed my attention and I thought, oh this is going to be so good and heart wrenching. I felt for Camryn and the loss of her husband and her never ending guilt. Then the kidnaping and the aliens and it started to lose me. I felt a little lost because there was no world building and thought maybe this was a spinoff of a pasted series. But Ryman and Camryn's characters just kept pulling me along. Ryman was this hot, sexy and very possessive alpha male and Camryn was a mess of a guilt ridden alcoholic with very little care for herself. But through out the book she grew stronger and more self assured.
Ryman has been exiled from his home plant for murder and now his brother has offered him up a challenge bet him at the Hell Horse Race and hell hand over the info on who the real killer is. He knows nothing of training horses so they come up with the idea of kidnapping a man from Earth well known for training race horses. Only they kidnaped the wrong person, Camryn. She insists they keep her and not go back for her brother. She won't allow them to take him from his wife and child and have them suffer the way she has since her husband Gabriel died. Little does she know what's going to happen the more time she's around the intriguingly sexy cat shifter, Ry and her unrelenting guilt she feels for her fading thoughts of Gabriel.
One of the other problems for me was some of the wording Ms. Munro used. She'd keep the meanings of the words but spell it different or shorten them. At first it was troubling but then I kind of got used to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great New Series!! March 21, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
What a great and unusual storyline!! I've read a lot of shifter books I can honestly say that I haven't come across anything along this storyline before. Shelley Munro has a great imagination and her details will definitely keep you engrossed in her book.

Camryn O'Sullivan lost her husband Gabriel two years ago, unable to move on; she has turned to alcohol to numb her pain. Camryn has been staying with Max, her twin brother, his wife Ellen and their son Luke. Camryn and Max ride and train horses, but she hasn't really done much of that lately since she is drinking most of the day and night. She over hears a conversation one night with Ellen telling Max that she doesn't trust her around Luke anymore and something has to be done. Max agrees that she needs help but he can't throw her out. Camryn heads back to her cottage, not knowing that she was about to be kidnapped and taken to an alien world.

Ryman (Ry) Coppersmith was accused to murder and turned in by his brother, Talor. Ry is also a shifter, a black leopard, he can't return home to see his family until his name is cleared. Ry and Talor made a bet that if Ry wins a race then he will help clear Ry's name so he can come home. Ry has done his research and found a trainer on Earth, Max O'Sullivan; he is supposed to be the best. Ry and his crew of misfits head off to Earth to kidnap Max but they end up taking Camryn because she has on Max's coat.

Camryn comes to and realizes that she's been kidnapped by aliens. She doesn't want them to take her back a get Max because he has a family so she tells them that she can train the hell horse. Ry is attracted to Camryn and they end of having sex. He can't seem to get enough of her. Her touch soothes him.

Follow Camryn and Ry's adventure as they find love throughout their adventure. This story has lots of details, twists and turns!!

Can't wait to see what happens next!!

Feline shapeshifter Ryman Coppersmith will do whatever it takes to clear his name including kidnapping Jockey Camryn O’Sullivan in order to win a hell-horse race but he doesn’t count on the passion Camryn’s arrival triggers in this exciting sci-fi romance.

Camryn has spiraled into a deep alcoholic depression since her husband died and when she’s kidnapped by aliens she’s both terrified and fascinated by Ryman but she’s sure he’s done something weird to cause her attraction. The reader can’t help but get caught up in all the tension and expectation that flows through this story from beginning to end and the chemistry between Cam and Ry explodes from the pages into some frequent scorching hot sex scenes but the relationship is not an easy one, especially as Cam wants to return home. Warning: the characters are strong, compelling, full of attitude and really demand the reader’s attention at all times and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot ensures that the characters get their wish with lots of suspense, excitement and passion.

There is never a dull moment among this crew as they train a hell-horse to race in a disturbing derby all while barely dodging lethal attacks against their persons and Ryman’s brother manages to cause a lot of strife and mayhem as well. Vivid imagery brings the story and fascinating world to life as the well written scenes and details capture the imagination and the suspense and events keeps readers on their toes with lots of action, excitement and some unexpected twists.

This is an edgy and sexy world full of intriguing characters, interesting and unique elements to keep things spicy and different. I was completely enthralled with the story from the very beginning and I can’t wait to be kidnapped by Ryman and his crew again so I can find out what happens next.
