    Shelly Laurenston turns up the heat with two sizzling novellas. Christmas Pride: How come all the good-looking ones are insane? That's what runs through NYPD cop Desiree "Dez" MacDermot's mind the minute she hooks up again with her childhood buddy, Mace Llewellyn. Shaw's Tail: Brendon Shaw, hotel owner and lion shifter, has seen better days. He's been beaten, had a gun to the back of his head, and had to be rescued by a Pack of shape-shifting wolves.

    Would you try another book from Shelly Laurenston and/or Charlotte Kane?

    I would recommend any of Shelly's books but only if they get another narrator....She drags ALL her words and reads like she is racing in the indy 500....Really????


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get an New narrator...One who does not seem like she/he is trying to rush us through the book and one who puts the inflection in their tone, you know simple things like pauses, changes in emotion..... I am sorry this is not a personal attack on the person themselves, just the way they read this book, it was so distracting I just quit listening and I know the book almost by heart!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    ANGER, plain and simple, I love shelly laurentson's books and own them all, I have written to tantor BEGGING for an audio version and was beyond excited to find they were finally coming out. I purchased mine early!!!. But this narrator just blew it for me. I am not usually so harsh with reviews but after waiting so long, I was horribly disappointed. They should have gotten Max Bellmore, he blew the LOTU series away!. Love all the pride series and will try again with the next one, in the hopes that the reviews get read and some adjustments are made. Love you shelly your books are the Best I have read in a long time and I just want a listen as good as the written version!!


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, Please slow down, drop the exaggerated drawl after every word AND just read a fantastic novel the way it is written with inflection and patience. I am sure that given a few tweaks, we could get an audio version which will keep us coming back for more!!

    Weddings have the strangest effect on people. How else to explain the fact that Sissy woke up in Mitch's bed the morning after her brother Bobby Ray tied the knot? Or that gunmen are trying to kill Mitch. Sissy Mae now has to escort a bleeding, stubborn, yet still incredibly sexy lion shifter to her Tennessee Pack's turf to keep him safe? It doesn't help that Mitch's appraising gaze makes her feel like the most desirable creature on earth, or that the ultimate stray cat is suddenly acting all kinds of possessive.
