Jack had been brought in to find a missing princess and bring her back into the fold of her family. After six months of searching he finally found who he thought was the missing princess from the house of de Winter. Unfortunately, Jack got more than he had bargained for when he discovered Ellie. His leopard knew right away that Ellie was his mate but Jack knew that could never be and that his leopard was either mistaken or was going to be sorely disappointed because Ellie was off limits.
Once confronted with the truth, Ellie had no interest in the fairy tales that Jack was peddling but when she realized that she was truly in danger she had to at least hear Jack out. Ellie was aware that there was something different about her but when Jack explained the truth to her, she really didn’t want to accept it. What she did want to acknowledge though was the sexual tension that existed between her and Jack. She had never been so drawn to anyone like she was to Jack but he was determined to keep his distance.
Jack had a job to do and even though his leopard was screaming for Ellie, Jack knew that she had a whole other life waiting for her and that there was no room for him in that world. He just had to keep her alive until he could rendezvous with Ellie’s grandfather and somehow keep his heart and hands to himself in the meantime. Ellie though has no qualms about letting him know how she felt about his ideas of keeping things off limits between them. He might have had a job to do but that did not mean she had to make things easy for him.
I love to read books that involve investigations, add a little romance to that and I am all in. The Panther’s Lost Princess starts off at the end of Jack’s investigation after he had already run down all of the clues to find the identity of his missing person, so I was a little bummed about that. I wish that I could have been more involved with the investigation itself and got to know more about the Redclaw Security agency.
There were many ideas in The Panther’s Lost Princess that I really liked. For starters, the explanation for how Ellie had managed never to have her true identity come through was interesting and pretty cool. Speaking of Ellie’s true identity, can I just say HECK YEAH! I read a lot of PNR’s and I can say that I loved that in this world there are a variety of shifters and that different shifter species can intermarry. Love that! Especially that two different species can mate and have an offspring of an entirely different shifter species. How cool is that idea?! Overall, I found The Panther’s Lost Princess to be an exciting read and it is a series that I am absolutely going to continue in!
This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Author, Mckenna Dean. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
Jack's mission to recover a lost shifter princess leads him to a woman who doesn't even know who she really she. Telling her that she's missing royalty is hard enough for her to believe, but revealing the fact that she's a shifter may be too much for her to accept. Letting she secret slip that she's also his mate...well, that's a box he isn't sure how to open.
When a hot guy asks Ellie out, she thinks her luck is about to change. But this stunningly gorgeous man in front of her is much more than he appears, especially when he comes to her aid. He's a shifter and the only person who can protect her from the people who are after her. And her attraction to him is impossible to ignore.
Yet, just when things between them start to heat up, Ellie finds herself torn between the man she wants to be with and embracing her shifter side, along with the family she's always wondered about. She'll have to learn to harness her power and somehow survive the assassins that want her dead.
I really enjoyed this book. We are thrust into the action pretty early so it caught and held my attention in the first few chapters. I didn't want to put it down--even though I had to in order to read another book that was due--but I picked this back up as soon as I could and finished it in one evening.
The story moved at a steady pace and I think the supernatural element was nicely done. I loved seeing both sides of the story from the dual-POV. I definitely think this was the way to write this story because it helped me to understand both characters better. Sometimes with the fated mates angle, the insta-love is hard to swallow. Yes, there is instant connection here, but I never felt like the relationship between our couple was forced. It was a pleasant surprise.
As for the romance, our couple's chemistry sizzled and popped. Jack was a realistic character with faults and that only made me like him more. Ellie was head-strong, but not to the point to where it became annoying. I think this pair were nicely done and I rooted for them early on. The ending did wrap up a little too neatly, but it also left me wanting more.
I'm looking forward to seeing who meets their match next, though I have a feeling that Jack's boss might get his turn soon. Five suns!
