I knew he was trouble from the first moment I saw him. But I couldn't resist trouble…
Life in Esposito County, NM is good for cougar shifters like me. I have a job, a fine little girl, and all the peace and quiet I could want. But when a tiger shifter/FBI agent with a honey-sweet Cajun accent and the body of a Greek god showed up asking for help, I couldn’t say no.
Especially when I looked into those gorgeous amber eyes. I was lost.
Next thing I know, I’m in bed with him. Then I get involved in his case and someone starts hunting both of us. If that wasn’t enough, I’m starting to hear his thoughts. That only happens with bonded couples, and there’s no way I can be mated to this gorgeous outsider.
Or is there?
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
SHIFTER WOODS: GROWL is the third book in the Esposito County Shifters series, and features Denise (cougar) and Marco (tiger). There is also the dodgy televangelist and a Venezuelan cartel to contend with.
This fast-paced novella doesn't give you much background on our main characters, but what you do get is enough. It is also told in a way that makes it interesting and natural, not just an info-dump. What you do get is a thrilling account of good against bad, of love and romance, of magic and mayhem.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, devouring it in one sitting. I loved being back in Esposito County and look forward to returning there again. A great story and brilliant addition to the series. Definitely recommended by me.

Nicola Cameron is a married woman of a certain age who really likes writing about science fiction, fantasy, and romance. When not writing about those things, she likes to make Stuff™. And she may be rather fond of absinthe.
While possessing a healthy interest in romance (and sex) since puberty, it wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to write about it. The skills picked up during her SF writing career transferred quite nicely to speculative romance. Her To Be Written work queue currently stands at around nineteen books, and her mojito-sodden Muse swans in from Bali every so often to add to the list, cackling to herself all the while.
When not working, she’s usually making Stuff™, kissing her husband, or entertaining her cats.
