Jennifer Ashley--Primal Bonds (Shifters Unbound #2)

Paranormal romance-shifter

As Guardian of his clan, Feline Shifter Sean Morrissey is a powerful member of his pride. But wielding the sacred sword is often a lonely role. When a female Shifter comes to town seeking refuge, Sean claims the new arrival, expecting a submissive little she-wolf. Instead he finds a beautiful woman who looks him straight in the eye without fear, stirring the mating frenzy within him.

As a half-Fae, half-Shifter, Andrea Gray is used to looking out for herself. But in order to relocate to a new Shiftertown and escape an unwanted mate-claim, Andrea must accept a new protector. A Guardian seems as good a candidate as any, but Andrea's intense attraction to Sean is something she never expected -- and a perilous complication for a woman with a troubled past.

Now, as Andrea struggles to keep her seductive savior at arm's length, Sean is determined to turn their mating of convenience into the real thing before the frenzy they're struggling to contain burns them both -- from the inside out...

I like this series, its entertaining in its storyline. The numerous shifters inhabitating Shiftertown are colorful and funny. Who wouldn't want a bear like Ronan? Anyway, this shifter series is rather different. The whole thing from the roots in Ireland, to the "collars", to being forced to live in shiftertowns, to a Guardian with a sword. They have problems just like everyone else, they just have different problems from humans. Power struggles with other shifter clans, mating frenzies, humans interfering with shifter politics. It is a nicely layered series, not a series I am obsessed with reading (like staying up all night) but I will keep picking it up on a Sunday while getting all my chores done instead of watching TV. The Fae aspect has been a little confusing until now, but now that we have met Andrea's father, it kinda makes more sense. Looking forward to reading the next one, looks like we are heading to Vegas....
