Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Eric Warden, leader of the wildcat Shiftertown, has enough trouble on his plate; he doesn’t need a half-human, half-shifter running around without a collar. Unfortunately, Iona Duncan refuses to entertain the idea that she needs Eric’s help in dealing with her wildcat shifting capabilities. Iona is terrified that if U.S. government agents discover she is a half-shifter, they will not only put a collar on her but will also punish her mother for keeping her secret. However, time is running out for Iona. The longer Iona refuses to deal with her shifter side, the more her mating hunger increases, putting not only herself in danger but everything Eric is working for at risk. With her patented page-singeing sensuality and flair for creative plotting, Ashley delivers another sexy installment in her Shifters Unbound (Bodyguard, 2011) series. --John Charles

Slight spoilers!

I am really enjoying this series so far. I was hooked after the first in the series, Pride Mates. For some reason I couldn't get into this one like the others. I think it had to do with how long it took him to claim her and for one of the reasons behind this. I understand that he was trying to give her time to adjust to the idea of being his... the thing that bothered me was the scene where he and his sister were sitting in front of a shrine to his late mate (I guess so he could say good-bye?). He also asked his 30+ year old son if he minded... I mean, it's been 30 years! In the previous book Wild Cats (the one about his sister Cassidy), she was in deep mourning for her mate who had died a year prior; this I could understand. Even Cassidy didn't have as much trouble letting go of her late mate after she found Diego, her new true mate. This really bothered me. I felt like Iona was a fill-in as a mate and the romance portion suffered from my perspective. They didn't get to really enjoy each other because there was so many other issues taking away from their mating. I almost wonder if she had been better off with Graham, the obnoxious Lupine shifter. For an Alpha and romantic lead, Eric fell short for me. He did the whole 'mine' scene enough and fought for her, but the devotion just seemed more one-sided (on Iona's side). Oh, well... I'm looking forward to the next in the series... Tiger Magic.

I love Jennifer Ashley's historical romances. In fact, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie is one of my all-time favorites. So why on earth did it take me so long to try out her PNR novels? I honestly have no clue but it was definitely long overdue! And, even though I'm starting with book four (such a bad habit of mine, I'll admit), it was so easy to immerse myself in the Shifters Unbound world.

And, wow, what a world. Miz Ashley hits you with sensual and arousing scenes from page one. Literally. When Mate Claimed (perfect title for this one!) opens, our hero and heroine are playing a very seductive game of cat and mouse. Without even having the time to build up the characters, get to know them, their chemistry still manages to leap off the pages. It is super sexy stuff, ladies.

You know, I think that might actually be the simplest way to describe Mate Claimed: a very seductive game of cat and mouse. Or should I say cat and cat?

Our heroine, Iona Duncan, is in denial--even though her body is sending out clues, bright flashing and flaring signals, that she's going through the mating frenzy: a time where her body has entered its breeding years and is desperate for a mate. Half-Shifter, she is long used to hiding and suppressing her animalistic tendencies, which she tries her darndest to do with her now-raging hormones. Except, this time, she can't ignore her Shifter side's needs.

Not that Eric Warden, alpha of Shiftertown, is about to let her. He knows the repercussions for doing so could cost her everything--she could go feral. But, more than that, his own body is responding to hers. Eric, a widow and a father, has done the mating frenzy before and never planned to do it again.

Eric Warden leader of the Las Vegas shiftertown has a lot on his plate. The humans have decided that the lupine shifters from Elko need to move to the Vegas shiftertown and aren't even giving them enough time to build new houses for them. The Wolves leader is a bit of a pain in the butt. Eric's sister is pregnant with her first cub. Eric is having problems with his collar (the device humans have put on shifters to keep them from fighting) and most of all Eric is having problems with what to do with the half-shifter Ilona who is passing for human but is entering a phase in her life where she will need shifter help with her control or out herself and her human mother for hiding her. And then there is the fact that Eric wants her for his mate.

There is a lot going on in this book. The pace is not as smooth as the previous books but I think that is due in part to the set up for future stories. Still a good read.

I really liked this one. Jennifer tells a good shifter story. I can't get enough. It was a sweet story. It doesn't have a lot of action in it. It's about two shifters coming together. Iona does not want to be called out as a shifter to protect her human family,but Eric makes her see reason. Back in the day,Eric was tested, so he goes through a lot of pain during the story,but Iona helps him through it. I highly recommend the read.

This series has held me captive since the first book I read which was part of a bundle by several authors. It is the " Dark and Damaged - Lion Eyes" first book in the bundle. I am so glad that it reintroduced this shifter series to me because Author, Jennifer Ashley, always come up with new and exciting ways to keep me spellbound from book to book. This book #4 of "Shifters Unbound" is no exception.

I love the characters that come alive with great detail and insight into their shifter or human lives. It really seems possible that we, as humans, are just missing an entire world right underneath our noses and too arrogant to believe it is remotely possible....only if....I would love to have a mate that treasured me and helped me live longer.

Why a #4 you are wondering? This book relied on sexual content more than necessary. So many paranormal authors are being caught up in this new erotica writing. I enjoy erotica when it is subtle and allows me to dream up my own personal scenes to suit my tastes. Jennifer Ashley does a great job in balancing content and using a solid plot line without too much dependence on erotica. This book was more erotic than the first 3 books. I am hoping that this trend does not continue as I will begin scanning pages instead of reading word for word at a leisurely pace. We'll see.....

The book is still great and some great twists make it impossible to stop now. The next book is Tigers and I can't wait to find out what happens to him. I am sure it is going to be fantastic. Watch for my next review about Tiger's story.
