Collared and controlled, Shifters are outcast from humanity, forced to live in Shiftertowns. But waiting within are passions that no Collar can contain…
As a wildcat Shifter and leader of his Shiftertown, Eric Warden knows his own kind. When he sees Iona Duncan, he realizes that although she appears human, she is a half-Shifter wildcat living without a Collar—and that if she doesn't acknowledge her true nature and her mating hunger, it may kill her…
Iona finds the mysterious and powerful Eric alluring, even though she has vowed never to reveal her Shifter side, lest her mother pay the price for hiding her all these years. But her mating hunger is rising, and with Eric so close, she may not be able to resist…and her desire may lead to the very doom they are fighting to deny…

First Thought when Finished: Mate Claimed by Jennifer Ashley moved the world forward A LOT!
Story Thoughts: Mate Claimed was a game changer. Let’s start with the romance which I thought was strong between Eric/Iona. It was nicely paced and I liked the resistance that Iona gave to Eric. The world change was also strong. There is a lot that goes on in this story and probably will go down as one of my favorites. It is slow, methodical, and very much on point for what is happening. Can’t wait to see where the story goes from here!
Character Thoughts: Oh Eric! I knew I liked him in his sister’s book but now I am a-swooning! He is just all alpha in the perfect kind of way: giving, caring, stubborn, and patience. Iona took a little bit to warm up too but that is only because of my love of Eric. Her decisions really did make total sense given herb background. The side characters were my favorite because of how they played into the world building.
Final Thoughts: Have I mentioned how glad I am that my library had all of these 🙂
