Kaya is a shape-shifter, and having been left behind by her family she's spent most of her life as a cougar in the wild. She's been watching Jericho and Hunter, two men who live in an isolated cabin, and they have been watching her. When she is hurt, she allows them to help her--and they discover that their wild cougar companion is in fact a beautiful woman. They both form an attachment to her, and are reluctant to leave her even when their work calls them away.

I liked that the plot was slow and
Once part of a menage relationship, Hunter and Jericho both agreed to never enter into another menage out of respect for their former partner. Hunter, a loner, has formed an attachment to a cougar that has been hanging by the cabin Hunter and Jericho share between assignments. Jericho is just waiting for the cougar to eat his best friend, but when it becomes injured Hunter is adamant it needs their help.

As if taming a cougar is not weird enough, they find a naked woman in their cabin. After a r

Really, I liked "Amber Eyes" much more than it's predecessor "Golden Eyes." The relationship build-up is slower, more natural. I especially liked how in the beginning Hunter and Jericho would trade attitudes off on things - Hunter was open to the cougar, but not the girl; Jericho was open to the girl, but not the cougar. It was creatively ironic. ^_^;;

But then, after they found out the truth and the three of them grew closer, I was a little disappointed about how Hunter took the prime roll in ev

this was the sequel to Golden Eyes. in this one we see where Kaya ended up after being captured from her home in Alaska. Coincidentally she ends up in the mountain of the small town her sister is living in. In cougar form she was watching a pair of men who lived in a cabin, longing for some human contact. after caring for her in cougar form she makes herself known to them as human. from there the relationship heads to a HEA menage, and HEA's all around really.

this one was lacking on the action/s

Since this was my first dip into M/F/M, I found the triangle quite nicely done. And because I'm not a fan of love triangles, I guess this is saying something. Plot- and mythology-wise, though, it was seriously lacking.

I personally have an issues with this "sharing lovers" thing, but the book was a good read. I was a bit disappointed towards the end because I expected someone to at least call out Hunter and Jericho for taking advantage of Kaya (EVEN IF THEY DIDN'T)or something towards that extent or maybe Jericho or Hunter died on the mission before you introduce this "relationship" to the girl's family but then who knows why things happen the way they did. Had a hard time rating, 3 stars or 4, cause even thou ...more

Yes, this book has a menage relationship. No, you should not read it (definitely not rate it) if you're "not into that kind of thing". *sigh* I don't read mysteries because I don't like mysteries. I also don't go around reading mysteries, then rating them poorly because there was a mystery to solve throughout the entire book. It's just dumb, and it's not fair to the author who is probably pretty good at writing in their chosen genre. I noticed that a lot of the 1-star reviews of this book declar ...more

I loved Maya Banks's Highlander series so I thought I would give this one a try. I'm not impressed, but I'm rather tired of the whole shapeshifter, werewolf, vampire stuff. This book features a shape shifting woman and 2 uber men. My biggest problem with this book was that I've never seen 2 men share French fries from McDonalds much less what these 2 share. I will continue to read books by Banks but will defiantly stay out of her paranormal novels.

Mucho mejor que el primero, definitivamente tiene el encanto de la autora que hizo falta en el primer libro, me agrado mucho la historia realmente es tierna, obviamente tiene sus fallos y algunos pedazos demasiado rebuscados pero en fin es buena historia para pasar un dia
Jan 27, 2014 Michelle rated it did not like it
I am a great fan of Maya Banks, but I have to be honest. This was the worst book of hers I have read. It has the makings of a good book, but the plot feels completely undeveloped. The emotions are unrealistic and undeveloped. They just don't feel real to the writing. I see them written there but they're not realistically occurring through the story line. The characters are OK, but the dialog is flat and unnatural. This book was not worth my reading time except that there are some spicy bits that ...more

I downed the rate a star because I forgot giving it a review making it seem that it doesn't strike much on the interest. I love the cougar shift thingy but it's kinda weird. Like reality clashing with fantasy and it feels so wrong. The ending...hmmm..where she found her family was kinda unexpected. When the POV turned Duncan I was asking what for and I found out, that his wife is Kaya's sister.
The sex part was...fine. Not that good really cause it is tamed down and its a menage. Guess that is as
4.0 RATING- I'm surprised I ended up like this story as much as I did. I rarely read paranormal/shifter books but I had the opportunity to borrow Golden Eyes and Amber Eyes and enjoyed both. (Both stories are connected but could be read as stand-alones. If reading both books, Golden Eyes should be read first). Maybe it was the damsel/shifter in distress and the lonely mercs that got to me, but this was a nice, short read and I wish the author had written more in the series. I've been a bit burne ...more

Hunter and Jerico live alone high in the country mountains. The go off on missions for long lengths only to return to cabin in the mountains. Hunter and Jerico have lost the woman they love and they respect her by the missions they run. They are loners, they do not need anyone. Hunter has been for the most part very cold until he comes across a cougar. The cougar keeps getting braver and braver by getting a little closer each time he spots her. Eventually the cougar makes her way all the way int ...more

A paranormal novella with a caring edge. Two men, both are wanting to make a difference in the world but not necessarily wanting to be involved in a social scene. Enter a beautiful animal that seems to want to be with them, and when they are least expecting it, they find in their mud room it's been replaced with a beautiful woman. There are really sizzling encounters between these three--typical Banks encounters--but there is also disappointment, insecurity, a sense of not being wanted or loved, ...more

Falling in love with your eyes

The concept of this story was very interesting two friends being captivated with two individuals only to find that they are one and the same. The characters are similar yet complex at the same time. The story very unique in its development. I truly enjoyed the characters and wished the story had not ended so soon.

Wild is right on the money. Breeds that have baby that are different from there animal form . I guest when you want to be different in your storyline go out of the box and become author Maya Banks. Original and romantic with a happy ending minimal drama. Yes, a worthy read if you looking for something different in the shifter world.

I've never been one to easily absorb fantasy/paranormal romances. I can understand how it might be fun for authors to write, though.
The story is about a shape-shifter who changes from mountain lion to woman. I was intrigued by the mountain lion-aspect since I adore cats. But she also finds herself with "two mates". I kept wondering how that was going to work since, in the animal kingdom, the males usually have big fights--and sometimes to the death--over a female mate. But since these two men

Shapeshifter Kaya is repeatedly drawn to the cabin of two men. After being hurt , a cougar shows up at their cabin and acts almost domesticated! Imagine their surprise when they find a woman in the kitchen. Cute but also sad. Abandoned and found only to be seemingly abandoned again.

I think I enjoyed Amber Eyes a little more than Golden Eyes, and I thoroughly enjoyed that novella. Kaya was enjoyable to read and watch come to get use to the human world she had long since stopped from trying to enter. Also for Hunter and Jericho to learn to love again.

Well well well.

Kaya's badly injured and when he seek for protection, she stumbled into Jericho and Hunter. They saved her and pet her. Yes, Kaya's still in shape of cougar, mountain lion. Until one day she can't take it anymore, so shifted back into human form..

This one's longer than Golden Eyes. I liked it. But again, to me Maya Banks isn't really good at menage stories. The relationship between them is a bit unbalanced and I don't understand why it has to be Hunter who took Kaya's v-card whe

While I liked the idea of the story I kind of went flat for me. The relationship between Hunter Jericho and Kayla was one of the few things I liked about this story.

What a let down, after Golden Eyes. The plot was alright. The dialogue was atrocious. Everything was hurried, stilted, choppy. I have read other Maya Banks novels, and this is hands down the worst.

She gets caught in a trap and Hunter and Jericho think that they are giving first aid to the injured cougar and they are in for a big surprise.... Because I have read ...more
I love this story. Very well written. Ms. Banks makes an amazing story believable and touching. You can see the caring and love develop between the characters so sweetly. The men are strong and protective but little Kaya is strong in her own way too. I wish there were more books in this series!

Reading the prequel, Golden Eyes, first isn't necessary but it, too, is a good story. In that book, Duncan's thoughts as he interacts with the cheetah, and at the discovery of the woman-who-is-a-cheetah ar
