Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, OH MY!

Animals and Romance? What a combination! Especially when those "animals" are too-sexy-for-their-own-good-Shapeshifters! And the possibilities are limitless. Thanks to the popularity of Paranormal Romance, authors are getting the chance to use their "wild" imaginations and create heroes and heroines that are beyond the 'norm' ---preternatural beings that can survive just about anything we throw at them. And we do (LOL) throw A LOT at them!

Want a Cougar shapeshifter hero who falls in love with his enemy and then has to choose between her or the survival of his family? My first-ever book TEMPTATION UNLEASHED had the hero, Aiden, fighting his primal side and his human-male need for a mate.

In HUNTED MATE, my lion shapeshifter hero, Logan, not only had to fight off other shapeshifters to protect the heroine but also had to fight his own honor code. Fate had decreed that she belonged to someone else. Would he give her to her fiance' ...or decide to keep her for himself?

In my PREY FOR THE WOLF, Kane is an Alpha shapeshifter who sets his sights on his brother's fiance. He has to decide whether or not he kills her --- or claims her.

My favorite shapeshifter hero has to be from UNDER A SHIFTER'S MOON. Lyon Savage, an alpha jaguar has been forced to marry in order to save his Pride from distinction. But what happens when the woman he has to marry isn't the woman he loves? His choice could end in disaster and death for too many. Including the heroine's.

Give an author a primal hero and she runs with a story that has readers devouring it and wanting more. Gotta love those Shapeshifters!

I absolutely love shapeshifter stories! They are my favorite!!! Can't wait to dive into your, Kari. I'd have to say the classic wolves are my favorite shapeshifter with a close second being panthers. I'd heard there was a sexy story about anaconda shifters, but I haven't checked that one out yet.

Thanks, everyone, for dropping in!

I have to agree, Shapeshifters are beyond sexy! My favorite are the Cats, with Wolves running second.

Course, Amber knows that Chippies can be awful CUTE too, huh! LOL!

hugs, Kari

I have definite tastes when it comes to shapeshifters. I like the feline family for sure! Lion, jaguars, and jaguars, oh my! My heart is racing just thinking about them. Maybe it's the mane, the rippling muscles, the hypnotic eyes, or EVERYTHINg! lol

Great blog, Kari! Hugs!

I love the big cat shifters like jaguars--sleek and beautiful.

I've also read some dragon shifter stories and have loved those too.
