Feral by Sheri Whitefeather
In Feral, the hero Noah is mountain lion shifter. He has anonymously donated huge amounts of money to the troubled Big Cat Canyon which is an exotic feline rescue center. It is headed by the beautiful and compassionate Jenny. But his donated money has strings attached: he invites Jenny to his exclusive sex club where he hopes to persuade her to return his 'favor.' But Jenny has always been practical and down to earth, and although she agrees to merely visit the club in exchange for the much needed cash, she can't help feeling unwanted attraction to the magnetic Noah.
Soon Noah realizes that Jenny is much more than a fling. When he thinks he has magical/prophetic dreams of Jenny, he wonders if his attraction to her has put her in danger or will she be his salvation?
This was an intriguing story about sexual exploration as the sheltered and naive Jenny lets herself fall under the seductive spell of the compelling Noah. I really liked Jenny’s character: she seems realistic and her reactions to the sex club and Noah’s secret seemed very normal. For example, reading about how nervous she is about visiting his club and how she slowly changes was very involving. Her anxiety and the feeling that she is stepping into a whole new world were believable. She even thinks about backing out. I also liked her practical side: she realizes that the donation will solve all her problems but will not compromise her integrity. On the other hand, Noah is bored with the same old women from the club and wants a challenge in Jenny. He anticipates the seduction and doesn't hold back! He is fascinated by a woman who has her own independence and doesn’t just want him for his wealth. I felt their relationship was genuine. I also liked the mischievous character Coyote who makes Noah think about his relationship with Jenny.
For a sultry and scorching read with a little of the paranormal to spice it up, this book can't be beat!
