A snow leopard shifter in the prime of his life, the last thing on August’s mind is tying himself to one female. He welcomes a different one to his bed each night, or at least he had until five months ago when he became alpha. The duties and pressures of running his pride have his libido dead on arrival—until a trip to London to discuss business with the former alpha lands him in the path of a beautiful, bewitching tigress who awakens a passion in him that flares white hot and a need of her that consumes his every moment.

Promised at birth to a male she has never met, Maya has left her pride behind to go to the tiger alpha who is to be her mate, but she can’t leave without saying goodbye to her older brother, Talon. A stop in London at Underworld to see him one last time turns out far different, and far more dangerous, than how she had imagined it when she sets eyes on an alluring crimson-haired stranger who stirs new, unbidden feelings in her, desires that rouse her fiercest and most frightening instincts and demand she stake a claim on him—her fated mate.

Will Maya be strong enough to place her pride and her family’s safety before the desires of her own heart? And will August unravel his feelings for the black-haired beauty before it’s too late and he loses her forever?

eBook Great Writing PNR

Felicity Heaton’s ETERNAL MATES series tends to return to characters whom we’ve encountered along the way which is a brilliant strategy because no matter how fleeting their appearance was in a previous installment, readers know that every dog cat has its day. TAMED BY A TIGER was the perfect example of this with Talon’s sister front-and-center, and plenty of other kitty shifters along for the ride.

This book touches base with Cavanaugh’s pride following his abdication to August as alpha. I liked seeing how his cousin was faring in his new leadership role, and his response when confronted with a similar dilemma to the one that had caused his predecessor to step down. He’s burdened by his responsibilities, seeks advice at Underworld, and the protagonist’s approach to solving his predicament is very different than his pridemate’s.

I wasn’t sure how Maya would make out as this novel’s female lead because out of all the tigers that were introduced in the earlier volume, she stood out the least in my eyes. But, her sparring match with August, and her love-him-and-leave-him attitude won me over after the first one hundred pages. She may have been overshadowed by her brothers for most of her life however, when it was time to step up, she did so without hesitation.

Maya actually showing up for her arranged marriage came as a bit of a surprise. I’d thought that August would have thrown a wrench into that plan much sooner, although admittedly, his dramatic entrance to snatch her from Pyotr’s arms on her wedding day ratcheted up the entertainment value tenfold. I was also very excited to learn that the author granted my wish—Grey will be headlining in the next title scheduled for September!

If you need to give in to love, TAMED BY A TIGER is not a bad way to go!
