Assistant DA Erin Jerome has a secret. Make that two. One: She's not entirely human - she's Other, desperately trying to keep her supernatural strength under wraps. Two: she's got a killer stalking her - an Other rogue set on "gifting" her bloody corpses.
But the bounty hunter on her new case isn't worried about any of that. Jude Donovan is a shapeshifter himself, and the new DA's midnight hair and addictive scent tell him all he thinks he needs to know: She's gorgeous, she's definitely not human, and she's bringing out the animal in him in a really good way. He might have to track a psychotic Other stalker through half of Louisiana. But he might also get the chance to see Erin's wild side come out and play.

"Danger and excitement leap off every page of this fast-paced paranormal romance set in the world of 2009's Immortal Danger. . . . Well-crafted characters and nail-biting suspense and passion elevate this tale above the glutted paranormal market." (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Night Watch is an Agency that takes down out of control supernatural criminals and the Team is made up of a variety of human, not quite human and very unhuman characters. There was a chilling, tension filled plot, that was action packed with suspense, secrets, a mysterious mad stalker/murderer, thrills, various supernaturals called Others.... Were-Shifters, Demons, Vamps etc., and it was well narrated.
The Alpha Hero Jude who's a Bounty Hunter/White Tiger Shifter is all Alpha (I never thought I'd say it but maybe too much) all the time, never letting up, never changing just bossy, demanding and arrogant which goes with his rare Were Tiger side. Erin, the Heroine and ADA, hadn't come out of the closet as a Shifter because she was flawed but the animal instant lust between them led very quickly to hot animal sex by Chapter 6. So there was passion but not a lot of romance as Jude became her personal Bodyguard as well as a Hunter Hell bent on catching/killing her evil stalker before it was too late.
Worth a credit? Exciting and enjoyable with lust and sex but no tender romancing which I missed however it was a Shifter book that had a tense, nail-biting storyline so YES creditworthy.
This was a good story but it was waaay to long. I don't read books without sex but Ms. Eden seemed to think it was necessary to fill page after page with sex. That's really not a good filler. So, I can't see myself reading any more of the Night Watch series. I read Scream for Me, Fear for Me and Die for Me and I loved those books by this author but this one, not so much.
I did like Jude and Erin. And the secondary characters were a great addition: Zane, Dee, Tony. Lee and Ben. I really had no idea who the bad guy was so I was completely shocked to find out.
There was some good sex in the book, at least, the first two encounters, and sexual tension but I just think there was a little too much. You could take 100 pages from this book and it would have been better.
As to the narrator: Ms. Eby did a fantastic job on the voices but her emotions are way off. Oh, she whispered when the book called for it but when someone was YELLING at someone else to "RUN!" she whispered the word "RUN." Fortunately, there wasn't too much YELLING going on so I didn't have to roll my eyes that much when she whispered.
The whole thing just seemed a little dull. The internal struggles just seemed a little trivial and resolutions where over dramatic for what were really non-issues.
I purchased this book in paperback a few years ago on sale while visiting family. Hated to put it down to talk to family or stop to drive but loved it. I purchase a lot of my books on audible that I've already read due to having to do my job so I know I won't miss anything this way. I've listened to several books now by Tanya Eby and always enjoy them. She can put me in the story and does a great job with the different voices. Good book to read or listen to..
I tried it and it's been a alright read. I've had better reads but was in need of a distraction. Book is alright but not sure if I will listen to the rest of series.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This is a good Tiger story/mystery which leads into the series. I would have liked more Tiger references i.e.: bushes tickling his whiskers. I just finished a hard core biker listen, Undeniable, and it has made this listen a bit tame. This needed a bit more of something? I wanted to try a book from this author as she is often pair with shelly Laurenston.
I have about 7 hrs to finish. This book needs more something i.e. humor, whit, or sex. So far I am not too impressed, so for once, I did not auto download the rest of the series, of which I am glad. Hey in 7 hrs it could impress me, lets hope so.
Tanya has gotten a whole lot better at reading since she started recording as Tatiana Sokolov, Madeline Sheelan's Undeniable. AKA Cassandra Campbell and main stream Tanya Eby are her more lighter reads/mysteries.
She had recorded Linda Howards Heart of Fire which I will have to re listen. My all time fave Sandra Brown Exclusive, she did not do well unfortunately! Her talent has a wide range and she may have another AKA name which I can't label yet. Her talent is best when the author is good.
