A thoroughably enjoyable paranormal romance novella. Rather than the usual short action packed novella this was slower paced and passion filled, a nice change of pace from what I've been reading lately and I needed it.

I had planned to read a chapter or two before going to sleep but I kept going until I was finished despite how tired I was, a mark of a good story! :)

Beautiful cover too but then I LOVE big cat shifters...

I really like Ms. Caridad’s short stories. For the length of this short book, she provided just the right amount of romance and hot scenes.

Jamie Morrison, a local news reporter, is assigned to interview a popular, handsome, ex-cop now successful author, Galen Hawke. Instant attraction was obvious between Jamie and Galen. And adults that they are, they had acted on that attraction. A simple interview ended up a one-night stand. Unfortunately, that

I am no stranger to Caridad's work, and I won this book in audible (they did NOT have that option on here); however this is my first shifter romance by her.

This is my first foray in audible, and I must admit that it was an odd, strange experience; especially on hearing the sex scenes out loud. It took me a bit to stop giggling like a teen with certain words, amazed how neutral the narrative sounded.

The narrator tried to differentiate between Galen and Jamie. She managed to lower her voice, to
Jamie Morrison is a reporter that managed to get the story of a lifetime when she managed to get an interview with bestselling author Galen Hawke. What she never expected was the intense attraction between them. After one night together they made plans to get together again. That all changed when Galen was in an accident.

Galen Hawke was changed after his accident to the extent he never made his meeting with Jamie. Now she is back. Locked together in his mountain lodge because of a snowstorm the

I was looking for a short, steamy read that could perk me up last week when I was doing college finals. I definitely found it in "Night of the Cougar" by Caridad Pineiro. This book helped me get out of my reading funk thanks to Biology and Math exams.

Reporter Jaime Morrison is sent to interview Galen who is a best selling author. She ends up not only getting an interview, but a night of passion from the sexy author. After a year, of not seeing him, she is sent

Reporter Jamie and author Galen spend a scorching night together. But Galen is a tormented soul who ends up being attacked by a cougar shifter. A year later Jamie arrives at his mountain retreat to get an interview with him, and becomes snowed in with the animal inside Galen that he can't control. All they want is to be together, but how can they possibly have a happily-ever-after?

I liked Jamie and Galen, Galen was hot, and so was the story. Recommended for a quick, scorching read. You can't go

I love the characters of Jamie, the hard hitting reporter, and Galen, the successful novelist. 'Night of the Cougar' tells their story. They are destined to be together but Galen is determined to protect Jamie from the fact that he has become a shifter. When an intense blizzard isolates them, they are forced to confront these truths. Even though Galen is now a were-cougar, they find a way to have a life together. My only complaint, the story ended too soon. I wanted more.
I thought this one was ok. I wish that there would have been more to the story because it seemed like there was a lot missing, especially considering there is a year from the start of the story to the end of it.
A little more story to this one than the previous Nocturne Craving book I read by this author but it is still more sex than story, which I don't particularly care for.
This was a good one for the short stories. Not for the faint hearted as it is a HOT read. But well done
