Book Description

Eric Randall’s plan is simple—fix the mess his researchers have created in Malaysia, experience the pleasures the country has to offer, and return to the comforts of America. All it takes is one beautiful aborigine, and Eric finds himself stranded in a world of Malaysian myths and legends.

A novice shaman amongst her people, Berani is free and independent. Yet all is not well in her homeland. Demons prey on her people, pushing them to extinction. When a strange speaking man invades her forest, she has one more worry to add to her already troubled life. Attraction or no, she will fight Eric tooth and claw to maintain her freedom. But will she destroy herself in the process?

If Berani wishes to save her family… if Eric wishes to reclaim his old life, they must stand together against the threats of encroaching wehr-tigers and bloodsucking demons… or perish.

Editorial Reviews


Sueroe at The Romance Reviews ~ SHADOW CAT is an entertaining read. It's the first of a series and I, for one, will certainly read book two.

Acquanetta Ferguson at ~ Reena Jacobs brings to life a different type of interracial/paranormal romance than the usual fare, and this is a good thing.

BLHmistress at Book Lover's Hideaway ~ The hot erotic scenes left me running for some ice out of my freezer.

Miranda at My Eclectic Bookshelf ~ Like shifters? Like Strong willed women? Like it when the male gets a WTF moment? Then go grab this book.

Felicia at The Geeky Blogger's Book Blog ~ Berani and Eric created a very unique yet fantastic love story.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Shifter Romance January 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Berani lives her life in Malaysia constantly trying to protect. She is a wehr-tiger trying to keep her family and the jungle they live in safe. Her lifestyle is being threatened by humans and also by evil blood sucking creatures.

Eric lives his life trying to keep his family's pharmaceutical company, Nora-Tech, from falling apart after some problems in Malaysia. He travels there with his friend to take a break and see about the research that was supposed to be going on there.

In a chance encounter both of their lives will change forever. Berani finds herself attached to and falling in love with a human, one of the things she truly despises. Eric will learn that sometimes finding love is more important than alone with a successful business.

This story kept me interested right from the start. Once I began reading I never wanted to stop. The characters and settings were explained beautifully. This book had so much going for it, action, mystery, self discovery, romance, and toss in some erotica as well. It was very well written and I truly hope that there will be more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Actual Rating 3.5 March 11, 2011
What I Loved: Berani and Eric created a very a unique yet fantastic love story. They were meant for each other despite their differences. I also adored Bryan and the roll he played in both with their love story and the overall arc story. The trials and tribulations these 3 faced were monumental but they worked through them all. I thought the "medical" (can't think of a better word) issues that they faced reminded me a bit of Outbreak (which I adored) and worked really well! In the end (no spoiler), how everything turned out was both realistic and satisfying for the storyline. It kept me hooked till the very end.

What I Liked: The history, world building, and culture that Reena created was unique and interesting to read. The glossary in the back of the book helped me when I was stuck. I appreciate when an author does that for their readers.

Complaints: Overall this was a fantastic book but it does take a bit to "get into". I really couldn't see tell what the story was supposed to be about until about 30 to 40% through (I am a kindle reader so I am not sure of the pages). Once the story hit that mark though, it was fantastic till the very end.

Why I Gave a 3.5: I really enjoyed the unique world that Reena built and the storyline was very compelling. I think different people will get into it much faster than I did and should take that into account.

Who I would recommend it too: PNR readers who enjoy a bit of transport into a world part of our world but different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensual and Intriguing February 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very different storyline. Descriptive and sensual. Two people who cannot speak each other's language, find the language of love.
Eric runs the family's failing pharmaceutical company. He heads a research team and `finds' himself along the way, thanks to the love of an Orang Belang/Whertiger, Berani.
Love, action and adventure, mystery and intrigue run through the pages of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Imagery with Plenty of Heat June 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed Shadow Cat. It took me a little longer to read than most books, but I got side tracked. What can I say, it happens.

The imagery that Reena creates in her description of the rain forest in Malaysia is amazing. There is basically something in this one for everyone. Action, romance mystery and yeah a fair amount of erotica. It all fits though and the story wouldn't have been the same without all the elements involved.

If I had one complaint about Shadow Cat, it would be that Eric's emotions made me dizzy. I know it couldn't be helped and he was going through a lot at the time. His whole world along with his definition of reality was turned upside down. It was just hard to keep up with where his head was when his loyalty between Barani and his family business and the "real world" would change almost from paragraph to paragraph. I could live with that though because none of it seemed forced by the end. He ended up where he needed to be and he was happy there.

Shadow Cat was a totally different story than I Loved You First, but Reena's style makes it just as entertaining and easy to read. I'm glad a went back to finish it, because once I started reading it again, I found it really hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It, Wicked Awesome! April 3, 2012
By Criss
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must say that this book had me in its grips from the first ten pages. I could not believe how good it was, Berani and Eric's adventure to find love while saving her people is beautifully captured.The twisted and turns kept the book interesting with Berani's wild and determining spirit, Eric's protective and heroic tendency. A coming together of love and the human spirit in all its facets. A truly wonderful book, I recommend it fully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different from the average shifter romance! February 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Intriguing, adventure in the jungle. Hot sexy man and a wehr-tiger in heat. A steamy mix when thrown together, struggling to survive.
This book is well-written, and kept my interest from the first to the last. The different native vegetation being used as natural healers was a plus in this story. The only thing I wasn't too fond of was the weird "bad" thingy that was described sort of as a vampire type creature with no skin - YUCK. But, then that was part of the danger surrounding Berani's village and the "humans" in the jungle. This was different from anything I've read, and I enjoy reading shifter type stories that are different from the "normal". . . shifter meets female, has to have her . . . Give author Reena Jacobs' books a try! They are well worth reading!
