On the Prowl

Christine Warren



Most girls would throw a fit if their parents tried to set up an arranged marriage for them. It's so outrageously old-fashioned—even for a Tiguri family, members of a fierce race of shapeshifting weretigers. But Saskia isn't getting her claws out just yet. She'll go through with this marriage to help unite two powerful families—and because her

On the Prowl is the first I’ve ever read of Christine Warren. I believe this is her thirteenth “Others” book but after doing some investigating and talking to people who are familiar with her books, this one is more of a stand alone. It introduces us to the world of The Tiguri, or tiger shifters. What initially drew me to this book is an arranged marriage. I love it when the hero and heroine are forced to marry early in a book. I can usually find this trope in historicals, but I was happy to see ...more

Brought together by their power-seeking families, Saskia Arcos and Nicolas Preda are now married, but won’t be considered fully mated until Saskia becomes pregnant with Nic’s cub. As fierce members of the Tiguri – the incredible shapeshifting weretiger community – they are put under the spotlight because of their status in the community and Nic’s place as CEO of one of the top corporations in Manhattan.

Saskia and Nicolas are an interesting couple, to say the least. Sask

Two powerful Tiguri (Tiger shifting) clans decide to strengthen their positions - and establish a Tiguri presence in the US - by combining forces via an arranged marriage. Nicolas Preda has it all planned in a very cerebral way of how he and his mate to be are going to rule their new domain, but he is unprepared for his viseral attraction to the elegant Saskia and how she threatens his tidy vision of the future. Saskia thought she was ready to do her duty and marry Nic, as a child she worshiped ...more

OK...here's the deal. I get in a rut sometimes, reading teen Paranormal Romance or just a plain good book and there's nothing naughty in it. I NEED naughty sometimes. So I pick an author that's very good at naughty. Enter: Christine Warren. I got hooked on this "Other" series when you could only get them through Ellora's Cave. And I bought alot of them! Now, they are available through Amazon, and I buy alot of them }:)

Heart wrenching beautiful Saskia Arcos is a Tiger shifter who has been raised

I haven't read a Christine Warren novel for some time. I don't really know why, but with so many books and so many series I can't always keep up. I only got this book as I needed something starting with an O for a reading challenge. I must truly thank that challenge. This book was really good.
When I first started, I liked that the story had a nice fast beginning. The story at first seemed to be nothing more than a nice,quick and fluffy read. Bit this book has a much more important message to tel

After a promising start this book swiftly headed from exciting to totally disappointing. It was readable and not that very boring but there was almost no plot and the one there was so predictable, I knew who the villains were from the start. There was no spark between the characters, who were uninspiring at best. Even the appearance of familiar characters couldn't make up for the lack of any new vitality added to an otherwise interesting world.

I love Christine Warren's book ever since I read 'Wolf at the Door'. And I love her world of the Others. I especially love it when Rafe and Graham is in the story (which I have to admit, it's always). But one thing I don't like about Warren's story... is the time line. It just confuses me. I've been following her even before some of the titles were changed (Fantasy Fix, Fur Factor, Fighting Faer, and Fur For All). And reading this, I was surprised that the time line went back in time again befor ...more

More of a 3.5. Hmmm... my first introduction to Nicolas was not favorable - on their engagement night, he's called out in the middle of nookie for the Spanish Inquisition and instead of telling the h even a bit of what was going on, he says (and I quote) "I don't have time for you."

Many shovels full of manure later, he's dug quite a hole. Of course, we as the reader are privy to his thoughts *after* he's uttered some lame-assed testosterone-laden edict (that had me glaring at the pages and think

Christine Warren's The Others is a delightful and fun paranormal romance series that I love. The publications are not in chronological order. On The Prowl may be number 13, but it takes place before many events witnessed in previous books.

In On The Prowl Warren introduces a new species of shapeshifters, the tiger shapeshifters or Tiguri. The Tiguri never had a presence in the USA until now. This makes the other shapeshifter groups antsy as in the past the Tiguri always drove the other shapeshif

This book is set in the time frame of the original stories but wasn't part of those stories, so it isn't a re-write. This story is about tiger shifters or Tiguri. Nicolas Preda and Saskia Arcos have become engaged to bring two of the most powerful families Tiguri families together. Nicolas has moved his businesses main office to New York because that is where so much business is now conducted.

Bookswagger Marcia: Four crowns. I have been following this series since I discovered Walk on the Wild Side in my local Wally World. I am officially hooked. One thing about the Other series I enjoy is you do not have to read the entire series, nor do you have to read them in order to comprehend or enjoy any book in the series. I jumped into the series and read them out of turn and was very comfortable. On the Prowl was funny, sexy and surprising. I loved alpha Nicolas, I loved seeing him so conf ...more

Saskia and Nic - Actually this one was one of my favorites to date. On first appearance Saskia gives the impression of a very compliant woman, what with accepting an arranged marriage and all. But that's only on the surface. Once you get down to it, while she's willing to compromise, apologize if she needs to, let past insults go, and in general follow her husband's guidelines - When it comes to something she feels strongly about, she won't let it slide, or compromise herself. As Corinne suggest ...more

Good book with combination of romance, suspense and action. I was REALLY wanting to smack Nic in the first 3 chapters for being such a controlling jerk, but I quickly found myself looking forward to seeing what the idiot would say to get himself in trouble next. Thankfully, Sassy did not tolerate his nonsense. I don't think I would have enjoyed the book at all if she would have been passive or a pushover. The next book is Rafe's story which has me over the moon excited. I have found Corrine anno ...more

Oh how I love Christine Warren's books. In this installment she pulled all types of emotions out of me. The story centers around Nic and Saskia(Sassy) who are embarking on an arranged marriage. That along with Nic's chauvinistic attitude had my hackles raised. This is where Christine Warren's writing ability comes into play. She had me totally disliking Nic (because of his superior attitude) and Saskia (because of thought she was going to be a door mat). Well, mid way through the story I did a t ...more

I enjoyed this. The Tiguri are weretigers, and don't associate with the rest of the Others, so it was a whole new group to learn about.

Saskia Arcos and Nicolas Preda have an arranged marriage, as is typical among Tiguri, and Saskia has been raised to be exactly the kind of woman Nic needs by his side. She might not have be willing to go through with it, except she fell in love with the older Nic when she was only eight years old and hasn't fallen out of love.

When he thinks he's going to lay down

Well i was between series when i picked this book up, and honestly didn't realize it was the 6th book in a series, normally i do some research on the books i read so i at least get them and read them in order.

That in mind, not a bad book, had both a gorgeous woman and one hunk of a man, both having great personality, great character development, very sensual sex scenes, not too dirty but at the same time just enough to make it sound delicious.

My only qualm about this book is the narration, at

The Council of Others, however, have some concerns with this more aggressive branch of the Others tree. When the leaders of the Council is viciously attacked, Nic becomes the obvious suspect.

Another pre-Unveiling story. The tigers have come to New York and the locals are not happy. Especially when the Head of the Council of Others, Rafe is attacked. Apparently the Tiguri have never played nice with the other Others and so suspicions naturally fell on Nic, the head of the streak and it is up to Sass, his new mate, to find out who the real culprit is.

The plot to attack Rafe turned out to be very convoluted and the relationship between Nic and Sass was very interesting to read. Though

I felt that this book was over too early. I didn't need to read the start of the series in order to understand what was going on with this story.
Shuling
Lovely! Warren really does know what she is doing and I love it. There isn't many conflicts between the H/h which I am grateful of since I just can't endure another books with them fighting each other over silly things and misunderstandings. They support each other during hard times and they both make sacrifices in the relationship. But, the mystery part is too easy to guess so that's probably why it has loses its one star from me. Overall, GOOD! :D

I've read and enjoyed all of Christine Warren's books of The Others, but I have to say that On the Prowl stands out. Initially I wasn't sure if Saskia was going to end up in love with her tiger fiancé, Nicolas, or if Rafe de Santos was going to make another conquest. But once Saskia and Nic come together, there's no doubt. The sex in this book is hotter than anything Warren's written before, maybe because the tigers don't hold back. It's explosive and touched with a hint of violence that adds in ...more

On the Prowl introduces a new species of Others to this series. Tiguri mates Nic and Saskia are at the heart of a plot to start a war among the Others--right in the middle of their "betrothal" and mating. Oops. This story stands out because of the exploration of the interesting dynamics between the very alpha and traditional Nic and the very modern-but-traditional Sass. It was a quick read and enjoyable.

Boring and unimaginative, those two words wholly illustrate this novel. For a paranormal romance (PNR) genre, it fell below breaking even for the paranormal part and the romance part. I thought I needed to gear up for the action and thrill ride of a romantic pair, regrettably, I didn’t need to. It was an easy peasy cheesy arrange marriage story that quickly escalated to a blaming game. This is my first book for the Other series and first read of the numerous works of the author. It's good that i ...more

I loved this book. I actually had no problems with this, I found it emotional, full of mystery and I loved that the other characters played roles here.

New characters this time, with absolutely no connection or ties to the others, the author could have left them out all together but I’m really glad she didn’t.

Even though the plot was a fairly big one, I really loved that the couple spent time together that the readers could see. After they got everything worked out, with the help of Corinne, I lo

I really liked On the Prowl. Sass is a tiger who is going through with an arranged marriage. It's part of their way. She has known Nic for a decades and has always loved him. Now how will their relationship be? Will he treat her like a partner? will he see her as an equal or be like the rest of the older generations and view women as to be seen not heard and support their men.

Nic has been fascinated by Sass since the few weeks he stayed at her home years ago. Now he has to pick someone to be hi
