There are few really good shifters books out there, even fewer series and only one Ellis Leigh.
Add to that Jameson, and I’m a goner. Seriously, how can one author write her men better and more attractive with each progressing book? It’s just not fair.
I can’t believe this is the last installment (full-length) in the series. I fell in love with this series with the first word I read, and quite possibly even before as I’ve read Ellis’s words years ago. This is one talented chick.
Jameson, who’s peaked my interest when he spied Moira when she voyeuristically enjoyed Dante and Blaze’s intimate moment. He seemed so predator-like, though light hearted, and somewhat mysterious.
In Claiming His Desire Jameson is revealed to have apparently lost his mate even before they met. This boggled my mind a little as I didn’t understand how if she died, he knew her to be his mate. And then I kept reading and got swept with a fantastic tale of telepathic romance, without both parties even realizing it. And I drowned.
I drowned in Jameson’s desires and his guilt, his acceptance and determination to both live and die.
Aoife (Eve that sounds like a soft a at the end, according to Ellis) is one heck of a woman. We’re talking killer with a bow and arrow, and she communicates with the dead. Which is, let’s face it, creepy as hell. And yet – she’s still kickass and extremely cool. I loved her from the first moment. So has Jameson.
**SPOILER** I have yet to read a story where almost from the minute a couple meets, the “boy” confesses he’s been an ass and they immediately become a couple. But it happens here and the rest of the plot is still so diverse and captivating. /END SPOILER
There’s magic, there are spirits, there’s sex (duh!) and there are so many emotions.
We get a bit of a taste of the rest of the Feral Breed members, a conclusion to the missing females and some good old-fashioned revenge on the bad guys. Claiming His Desire is it’s own beautiful erotic romance story, but also a perfect conclusion to this series in every way.
I loved this series, Rebel, Beast, Phoenix, Gates, Shadow and naturally I enjoyed immensely the little novellas in between, and I loved Jameson.
I’m going to give this 5 Stars as it deserves.
A shifter waiting to end it all…
A woman living her life surrounded by death…
A destiny few could survive.
Book six in the Feral Breed series
Jameson craves death. Former president of the Four Corners Feral Breed den, he’s abandoned his post and left behind his brothers to escape the worst day of his life. The day he saw his mate—a woman he’d never met—lying dead on a concrete floor, leaving him with nothing to live for except the fight to rescue the kidnapped Omegas and haunting visions of seducing the woman he failed to save.
Aoife sees dead people. Lots of them. The necromancer does her best to help them transition from one plane of existence to the next, but they don’t make it easy on her. Neither do the visions of blue eyes that have been torturing her for the past year, eyes she swears she’s seen before, belonging to a man who fills her dreams with passionate adventures and a desperate longing no one else can satisfy.
A psychic’s dream takes Aoife on a cross-country journey that leads her straight into the battle at Merriweather Fields…and the path of her mystery man. When Jameson realizes his mate is very much alive—most of the time—his renewed zest for life leaves him in a treacherous predicament: protect the men and women of his breed, his friends and Feral Breed brothers, or keep the woman fate says is his perfect match out of harm’s way.
Loyalties shift the landscape and not everyone can find their way across when Death comes out to play in this final, full-length installment of the Feral Breed series.
A storyteller from the time she could talk, Ellis grew up among family legends of hauntings, psychics, and love spanning decades. Those stories didn’t always have the happiest of endings, so they inspired her to write about real life, real love, and the difficulties therein. From farmers to werewolves, store clerks to witches—if there’s love to be found, she’ll write about it. Ellis lives in the Chicago area with her husband, daughters, and a giant dog who hogs the bed.
