On the verge of bleeding out and hunted by his merciless torturers, Talon has no choice but to seek sanctuary at Underworld, a nightclub run by a jaguar shifter liable to kill him on sight for being a tiger shifter male. What he finds in the old warehouse isn’t the grim shadow of Death though but an angel of mercy, one who offers him salvation and revenge—one who happens to be his fated mate.

Tending bar at Underworld is never dull when you’re a mortal surrounded by immortals, but when a gorgeous tiger shifter covered in blood stumbles into the club, and set’s fire to her boss’s temper, Sherry’s entire world is in danger of being turned on its head. Something about the mysterious warrior has her stepping in to save him, something that ignites her heart and stirs her soul, and no matter how fiercely she fights it, she can’t hold herself back.

When Talon reveals the name of his captors, and his plan to head back in to save his friends, will Sherry be brave enough to embrace the feelings he stirs in her and step deeper into the world of immortals? And will Talon be strong enough to resist the lure of Sherry to protect his family’s secret or will he risk everything to claim his eternal mate?

I was sooooo happy to get my hands on the next ETERNAL MATES installment after nearly a twelve-month drought. Felicity Heaton didn’t leave readers high and dry during that interlude though, with her new GUARDIANS OF HADES series there to help fill the void. Still, that didn’t stop me from longing for this universe and its characters, and to top it off, TURNED BY A TIGER is the start of a triple tiger takeover!

This story didn’t adhere to the classic action followed by romance sequence, instead the order of these components were reversed which wasn’t how I personally prefer events to unfold. I need a little bit of adrenaline to get my engine going, so I had some difficulty with the insta-love introduction. Talon’s entrance into Underworld was dramatic however, after the initial shock value wore off the author briefly lost my interest.

The narrative was overflowing with cat puns that kept me grinning stupidly at my tablet the whole way through. Sherry’s nickname for the protagonist was by far the best though. Funny, yet GRRREAT! I also liked that a lot of past couples had their own little skits within the plot line including my main squeeze, Bleu. There was just the right amount of old favourites to compliment the flow along with a preview of a few more pairs to come.

Talon’s secret was a bit of a let-down, but that’s ok because his unusual brother more than made up for it. I know that his sister’s tale is up next, so fingers crossed that TREASURED BY A TIGER is Grey’s book! I’m a tad disappointed that this series is becoming weighed down by felines; I miss the elves, and I wouldn’t be opposed if the bear shifter that we encountered in this volume were to get his own happily-ever-after too.

Get your summer reading party started with TURNED BY A TIGER!

  1. Great review. It was so nice to return to this series. I was missing it. Though we did get Guardians of Hades to tide us over. I like the cats, but I would like to go back to the Elves or the one I really want is the Angel and Emelia’s story that we got a hit of in Taken by a Dragon and this one Turned by a Tiger or maybe some more dragons. I do love dragons. So many great supernaturals to pick.
