Format: Mass Market Paperback
Answering a trespassing call, Las Vegas detective Diego Escobar never thought he'd find a naked woman fifty stories up but Cassidy Warden is no ordinary woman. As a shifter, unfair laws state that Cassidy could face hard jail time or even the death penalty for the harmless act, so Deigo puts his job on the line by covering for her and now must keep a close eye on the feline beauty. Cassidy should be furious that Deigo stopped her from getting the assassin who killed her mate, then arrested her after she saved his life but instead she just wants another chance to get closer to the man who has her feeling more alive than ever. Knowing what it feels like to want revenge, Diego will help Cassidy find her killer and fight for a future he wants with the woman he'll risk everything for.

Diego is a human who has the presence of an alpha. He's intelligent, hardworking, confident, doesn't back down from a challenge and has a need to protect the people he cares about. Diego knows Cassidy can shift into a lethal snow leopard but he still wants to protect her. In Cassidy's world of dominate male shifters, Diego manages to stand out not as a weaker human but a man who can hold his own, whether against feral shifters or close minded humans. I love that Diego doesn't feel the need to prove himself physically against the shifters. He knows his strengths and won't let anyone make him question that. Plus there was no way I couldn't fall for his Latino charm.

Cassidy has a great relationship with her family and I could really feel her pain whenever she talks about the loss of her mate. She's ready to help when there's trouble and while I did like her, I had issues with her character.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Being human means police officer Diego shouldn't like Cassidy Warden. Something about her calls to his wild side, even as he's cuffing her wrists against that flawless back. Laws are laws and she's broken one, for a shifter that's bad news. Diego knows he needs to treat this case carefully, especially after he learns that she's being hunted by someone that seems to appear and disappear at will.
Feline shifter Cassidy hasn't trusted humans since her mate was murdered a year ago. She needs the closure of finding his killers if she is ever to stop grieving so hard. Diego, the sexy Latino cop, is slowly starting to stir her mate bond again and she is fnding herself powerless to stop it. Diego is still grieving the loss of his partner and he may need some consoling only Cassidy can do.
With their faceless enemy closing in Cassidy and Diego have little time to figure out who is after Cassidy and why. Help from friends shifter and human alike, along with some new allies, will be their only hope.

There is just something about this series that I love. There isn't an overload of action. The sex scenes are hot but not really anything out of the ordinary. The thing I love about this series is the connection I feel with the characters. The connection the characters have with each other. And the sense of family woven throughout the story. Add to that some sexy shifters and you've got a winner in my eyes.
Diego....omg you guys...give me a hot, protective cop that whispers naughty things in his native language, in my ear ANY DAY. He was strong, protective even though Cassidy can more than take care of herself and completely loyal to those around him. His past of gang involvement having shaped him into a great cop and a wonderful human being.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cassidy Warden is a Feline Shifter, and second-in-command in her Shiftertown outside Las Vegas. One year ago, her mate was killed by human hunters, men who haven't been caught or punished. While trying to makes sense of his death, someone starts hunting her, chasing her to an abandoned construction site. Diego Escobar is a vice cop with the LVPD, and finds himself face to face with his biggest fear--heights--and his first Shifter--a very naked Cassidy--when she saves his life. He still has to arrest her for trespassing, but promises his captain he'll watch out for her to save her from jail or worse. Their forced intimacy nurtures an intense mutual attraction, and they still have to figure out who has been hunting her.

I came to Wild Cat, the third in Jennifer Ashley's Shifters Unbound series, with high hopes. I picked up Primal Bonds on the strength of her other novels, and loved it, and Bodyguard, an e-novella, was also fabulous. The world Ms. Ashley has created is terrifying in its realism--Shifters have been regulated into second-class citizens and relegated to Shiftertowns, forced to wear collars to control their aggression. Many stores won't let them in, they cannot marry or own property, and nearly any crime committed by a Shifter against a human is an immediate death sentence. Sound like something America would do to people it can't control and doesn't understand?

In spite of all this, the Shifters are thriving. It's in this world that we meet Cassidy and Diego. Unlike the first two novels and one short story set in Austin, TX, Wild Cat introduces the reader to all new characters in Las Vegas. (Not totally: we met her brother Eric briefly in 'Primal Bonds,' and a few of the Austin Shifters have a cameo here.
