Shannon is a quarter puma but can't shift. She's just a human with a few extra genes. But she knows how dangerous shifters are and now she's their prey, captured by a group of werewolves for a deadly hunt. Then she's rescued by the biggest werewolf of them all. He's the sexiest male she's ever seen-jet-black hair, muscular body, piercing dark eyes and a growl that heats he ...more

Not a complicated plot. Ii was expecting to get more of the characters of the previous book, ‘cause in Laurann Dohner’s books there’s always a little feedback about previous characters stories…but here was quite short. Anyway!

So MATING SEASONyou do understand what this is gonna be about given that they are in that kind of season, right?. Have clarified that…let me say that this was like an animalistic version of Romeo and Juliet.

My not-so-guilty pleasure when I'm not looking to expand my mind or feel too emotional

Yes the title is horrible but this was Purrfect (sorry couldn't help myself) for what I needed. I was cheering at the sexual tension. When they finally did it, it was pretty fucking hot - or should I say pretty hot fucking. I was seriously loving everything… Until the plot got in the way.

Now I’m not a plot person. I’d prefer relatable characters and good writing any day. But if and when plot

We start out with Shannon climbing a tree to save herself from getting raped and killed by a pack of werewolves.

Enter Anton, the next alpha in line to take over the pack. Once he gets Shannon out of the tree, he discovers that she is part puma shifter, an enemy of the werewolves, but he can't seem to control his strong desire for her. He decides that she will go through the mating heat with him which can last up to two weeks!

** 4 1/2 stars **

I really liked this shifter romantica, it was much better than the first book in the series. The hero was much nicer but still sexy and alpha. We also get his POV unlike the first book. I liked the main characters and it had a decent storyline.

If I could, I would live in Laurann Dohner's worlds. She is just so amazing at creating superb characters and building worlds that seem so believable.

who wouldn't flip seeing this guy growling?

After meeting Anton in the first book, I was very excited to pick up his book. He's next in line for alpha of the pack after his father steps down. He's got a lot of responsiblity on his shoulders including a psychotic mother. He's sexy as hell, alpha-licious (without being an asshole like so many of them can be), uber protective of those he loves,
4.5 stars (would have been 5 if hero hadn't been a manwhore in past)

I LOVED this book!! I read a couple of the New Species books and didn't really like them, but I TOTALLY enjoyed this book. The romance and the sex were fantastic. I thought it was so adorable the way Shannon would jump onto Anton when she was scared -- just like a cat!!
Great book with much smoother writing style and storyline than Fury and Slade (the other Dohner books I read). I also tried Justice, and didn't even finish it. I

This one was 100 times better than the first. The hero and heroine were actually quite likeable. Anton was so possessive and sweet with Shannon. I loved it. Shannon was adorable whenever she was frightened and practically climbed Anton.

This was a sweet love story. If she continues this series I hope they are as enjoyable as this one and not like the first book.
Phew!! This is steeeeeeeeeeeamy. Hot hot hot! Pure porn, with M-F sex between a puma who can't shift and a werewolf in human form...mostly. Minimal profanity. Minimal plot. Some violence. Some sexual violence -- see spoiler below. A handful of typos.

The characters were not irritating, as sometimes happens with erotica. I liked them. Anton the werewolf becomes instantly and completely committed to "his purrfect mate" Shannon.

What happens when a wolf shifter falls hard for a cat shifter and they can't keep their hands off each other?


You end up with one Smoking Hot Read!!!
This was a pretty hot shifter book. I always love it when shifters of different species get just an extra layer of danger and intrigue.

Shannon is only a quarter puma but that's enough to trigger the wolves hatred. Thankfully, Anton is there to intervene and offer protection.

Is this it? This is all we get out of this series? Ms. Dohner needs to move her ass and write books for the other 3 brothers AND one for their cousin Brand. This is a SEX FEST story. Hawt mating sex doggy style with a kitty cat is pretty AWESOME.

There is some mild shifter sex, but nothing full on. This was marked as a BDSM book and I'm not sure it qualifies. There was a scene were the heroine, Shannon is tied down with a collar on her neck as several men try to gang bang her in a non con kind o

Now THIS one, I liked. Mate Set was a little so-so for me, but this one? MUCH better. Written a little more in the style of the New Species books. Shannon is the ultimate damsel in distress and Anton just grabs on to her and will NOT LET GO, no matter what. The plot was better, the action was better, and the emotions, sexy dialogue and hot sex was non-stop. The loyalty of the pack to Anton and Shannon was, well, frankly, pretty stunning considering apparently that werewolves hate pumas enough to ...more

I really enjoyed His Purrfect Mate (Mating Heat #2). Upon meeting Anton in book 1 of the Mating Heat series (Mate Set), he was interesting but held no true appeal for me. That all changed in this book as I couldn't help but fall for both the man and his beast!

Anton, werewolf shifter and next in line to be Alpha of his pack, and Shannon, one-quarter puma shifter who was raised outside of the shifter world, meet when he rescues her from the young werewolf pups intent on catching and killing a "cat

This sequel is sooo much better than book one! I enjoyed Anton's story!

Shannon's part Puma, but her trait is not as sharp as it should be so she still mostly human. Anton couldn't resist her yet at the same time, Shannon's considered his enemy. What will happen next?

Phew, this series definitely full of sex scenes. Haha. I enjoyed the plot though, Anton's much more gentle than Grady and I'm grateful for it. Plus the storyline is not as complicated as Mate Set.

Overall I liked it. Definitely going

Great follow-up to the first in the Mating Heat series. I got a little irritated with the see the cat, kill her mentality of all of the wolves with the exception of a couple. I'm a firm believer in the treat someone how you want to be treated camp, and a lot of the wolves were just plain buttheads. I look forward to the next in the series. She definitely left it open for AT LEAST two more books with the mention of Von's human leaving him and Brand's half-breed spotted leopard leaving him. It wil ...more

I’ll take out anyone who harms you.”
Stunned, she gaped at him. “Take out?”
His eyes darkened to near black. “I’ll kill them if they hurt you.”

I loved this right from the beginning. A werewolf who falls for a cat, which is frowned upon in his pack (I just love things that are forbidden, makes it extra steamy) =)

He’d go insane if something were to happen to his sexy little kitten

I need to read more of these shifter type books! didn't realise how hot it would get, the mounting and the biting! yu

4.5 stars at least! OMG, this book was fantastic from the beginning to the end. How the characters click with each other personality. Yum Anton, mmm, delightful, from the long hair to his tail, oops. The brothers were so funny. I have to admit, I am a sucker when a man kneels down and pledge his love to the woman without any guilt, just speak from the heart. WOW, I was in tears how he wanted her so much and yet he knew that she was scared because the way his family were feeling toward her Puma s ...more
Steamy and satisfying

Book 1 in this series was just ok for me, so I put off continuing this series. My bad. This book went above and beyond. The sexual chemistry was off the charts. I devoured this read from beginning to end. The characters were strong and irresistible. The plot was exciting and never dull. The sex, well, that was just sizzling. I was beyond impressed all around. I wanted a little more with the epilogue, but hopefully we will get more progress on this couple in other books for
I liked this one. The shifter world seems pretty clear. The hero was nicely alpha but wasn't an ass and he was never nasty to the heroine. I was pretty amused at the way the heroine climbed anything in reach when she was scared. The characterization of both of them was well done. I liked how even the "good" shifters were not all good. The writing was nicely done and the plot made sense. The sex was plenty hot and there was plenty of it. I'll definitely read more in this series.

Better get out your oven mitts to hold this one, it is HOT!

I got into the story right away, and read it straight through. The hero is yummy and the sex scenes are something else! If you are a fan of erotic romance and need a summer pick-me-up, you can't go wrong with this book.

It is the 2nd of a series. You could read it without reading the first and not be lost, but i'm glad i read the first one.

This was another cover to cover quick read, regardless of length, for me. I enjoyed this one much better than the first mainly because Anton didn't act like a tool like our poor Grady did, and make a huge mess out of everything. The characters were sexy and entertaining and the sex was hot. Fun series!

Anton's was a fabulous story...he finally found he purrfect women. I so.loved how his brothers showed a united front, and were there for each other. what a complete bitch his mother turned out to be. I can't wait to see who the next story will be about.

Another fantastically steamy read from Laurann Dohner! I really hope she puts out more for this series! I love the Harris pack and can't wait to read about the rest of them!

This story was much better than the first one. The characters were more believable and likeable.
I need more stars! I really liked the first book, but this one was even better. Great characters and a great story line. I hope there will be a lot more books written in this series!

Shannon’s been captured by a group of werewolves for a deadly hunt and since she knows how dangerous shifters are she figures she doesn’t have much of a chance against them until she’s rescued by the biggest werewolf of them all in this thrilling paranormal romance.

Woowza, that is another uber hot read for this series!!! Good lord, warn a gal so she can have a cold shower ready!!!

I love yummy Alpha to be Anton. He is just scrumptious!!! A gal could do worse than a smexy bossy wolf. Sure he was a player before, but once his wolf decides on a mate, all bets are off!!!

Shannon is sweet, if a bit naive. I understand she is fighting deep cat instincts, that is the only reason I did not find her a wimp. She has plenty of sass and gumption, if she could just get t

His Purrfect Mate marks the second book in the Mating Heat series by Laurann Dohner and begins with a lot of action and fantastic sexual chemistry between the two main characters. Filled with emotion, passion, action and betrayal, this book will keep readers enthralled and entertained from beginning to end!

Shannon has never had to deal with her "feline" side in the literal sense, yet Anton has always had to contend with his "wolfish
