They're Panthers, ancient shapeshifters, and their survival depends on mating to bring out their wild sides...


When Antonio, the strong, sexy new leader of the Panther pride, meets

Mrrooww. "On the Prowl" is certainly a 'really hot book', just as it's described on the back cover! It's also a three-story anthology by Crystal Jordan about a family of werepanthers and what happens when they meet their mates.

"Undeniable" is the first and longest story--which makes sense since Jordan has to set up her world and its rules. Antonio is the new leader of the pride. Meeting his mate should be the best thing to happen to him, right? Well, there's just a couple of problems. She's an

The title may be less than original but the story has plenty going for it.

Panther shape-shifters, a species as old as ours, have existed alongside us in absolute secrecy. Each continent has its own Pride, with all the members of the Pride living together. They're not immortal, but sleep rejuvenates them and allows them to lead a slightly longer, healthier life. They're very uninhibited, sexually, and promiscuous until they find their mate, the one panther meant for them. It's only with their mat

In this universe, radiation poisoning has caused mutations that over time, have become part of the normal life - most people can shift.

Easy to read - quick to finish - enough to satisfy

On the hunt for a great shifter book? Let me recommend On the Prowl by Crystal Jordan! Her talented writing + imaginative plots = one heck of a sexy panther shifter tale.

I loved this book—let me tell you why. Characters, characters, characters…she made them loveable and interesting. The romance, tension and steamy hot sex scenes that we have all come to love (or maybe even crave) are abundant. The struggles were believable; the bantering was endearing. And THE TWINS—by far my favorite unforeseen

Very good, erotic story of twin brothers who find that their mate is Isabel Rivera. Everyone sees them as "playboys" with wild ways. However, very few see that they are very hard working lawyers for the Pride that they belong. Isabel is on the run and asking for asylum from her pride. In her pride, there is a man claiming that she is his mate and she can not convince her pride that this is not true.
This is one those ‘3 books in one’ deals. I liked the first story – Claim Me. I thought it was HAWT off the bat and couldn’t stop reading. I was drawn into the conflict of Solana not being a non-shifter and the reasons why she couldn’t. I thought Antonio was amazing in the way he really didn’t care and how he wanted to change the Pride.

I didn’t like Take Me. At first I liked it, but it just seemed to drag on. The ending of the story was actually decent, but over all I just couldn’t seem to enjoy
Good read. Single author anthology of three related and chronologically sequential shifter stories. In this case, they are panther shifters - the three stories center around the Cruz family who are the 'royal family' of the North American Pride based in San Francisco. At the start of the book Antonio has just taken over as Pride leader and is fighting bring the Pride into a better place with the help of his twin younger brothers and Miguel, his Second who is from the South American Pride.

Unnoted BDSM themes, including bondage and pain. Some how this author ascribes to the belief that the cure for abuse or borderline rape is to become a sub.

As usual I do not appreciate incorrect psychology or lack of notice about themes that survivors would usually find upsetting rather than titillating. I will be avoiding this author in the future.
This was interesting because it was three stories in one but still connected as it was all about the entire family. It was a fun read, not my favorite book ever but I would read and buy another one of her books so it's on my must read author if you like shape shifters, sex, fun, family and dysfunctional issues to over come!!!

I really liked this book. Three stories, all related by storyline and familial characters. I felt that they were read in the most perfect order. Story 1, sexy and sucked you in. Story 2, even hotter than the first and story 3 topped it all off. I don't want to put spoilers in here so, all I will say is that Jordan's order was perfect and, just when you think you are amped up enough, she steps it up a notch. I would have given it 5 stars except the final 2 chapters were slow to me....for some odd ...more
Holy crap every second page in this book was sex but I must admit I still enjoyed the story line too.
I bought this one thinking it was just a stand alone book not realising it was three different stories in one. But it was good reading about the other brothers and how they got together with their mates, and wow two mates for the one girl...that story was very umm interesting and whew HOT!.
It was a good quick read and Im glad I bought it.
I have no problem with erotic sex scenes in books. It's hard to find one on my collection that doesn't have at least 1 in it. But that's all the book is. 3-4 pages of sex, maybe 1-2 pages of actual story line, and then they're having sex AGAIN. This could have been so much better if the author had focused on the story line a bit more and gave the characters some depth.
Great find at the library. Hot shifter Story. 3 stories in one book. Pleasantly surprised by this one.
Omg. I loved loved loved this book. 4 very different people in the same family finding love. Adding the complication of being in the ruling family of a panther pride was awesome. Totally gutted when I finished it. Love Crystal Jordan
I love stories that crystal jordan has in here. I think my favorite from this book is the last one with the two brothers. Thinking about it gets me all hot and bother.
Shh I'm reading!
Three steamy short stories with predictable plots... but somehow I don't think plot was the author's focus when she was writing this one.
By the second story in the
book, I realized Id read a
later book in this series.
Finally the plot line is
all making sense.
Hot shifter lovin... Not as steamy as I would have thought but overall pretty blush inducing!
