Originally posted on Joyfully Reviewed:

Madeline Grant has never quite felt normal, but with the extreme tiredness and inhumanly painful cramps she’s been experiencing lately, the ER nurse feels less than human. That’s no surprise to Jake Redthorn. When he comes to the hospital Maddy works at, he immediately senses she’s a shifter and is about to go into heat. Maddy’s in danger if she doesn’t breed with a shifter ASAP, but Maddy’s a Lynx and Jake’

This isn't a very likeable shifter world, between all the shifters who are snobs and then all the fricking rules that could have you dead or wearing a brand on your face. Also the heroine's attitude about WIll really bugged me.

Howling Good Time!

This is a fast paced romance that will hold you captive from the first page. The author did a good job of giving us a look into this shifter world without giving away too much information too fast. With a few different kinds of shifters involved there was a bit of drama with their interaction. I had a great time seeing how they interacted with one another and understanding this new world right along with Maddy.

Madeline is a kind and intelligent woman who is used to being on her
I absolutely love Evangeline Anderson's books! This one did not disappoint, well unless you count the fact I was disappointed this book wasn't the start to a series. The book summary given on both amazon and goodreads is great so I will not summarize the book but I will say this book was edited and written well, I really enjoyed the characters and the story does not slow down. Be aware this is a sexually graphic book and may contain themes not everyone is comfortable with.

Great book but what would have been icing on the cake would have been if Madeline had given birth to both a Lynx and a Wolf child to prove that the Taboo was hogwash.

From no sex to uber-sex, this is the story of Maddie who discovers that she is a were-lynx and in heat. The story focuses on how she gets through that time with the help of Jake and later Will. The sex scenes are quite hot and tittilating to read, but the way Maddie developed her feelings to Jake is too fast for me. Will seems like the third wheel in the story but I'm glad that he also found his happy ending.

Madeline had no idea she was a shifter, as an orphan she grew up knowing nothing but a normal human life.
Working at the hospital a man suddenly claims that shes a Lynx about to go into heat and change. A new world filled with rules and taboos opens but will she end up with the one she craves?
3,5 Stars, shifters, alpha males and smexin. Sometimes a bit repetitive, but a fun, quick read.

This book was one of my first in the erotic fiction department, so it was one of the books that reeled me in to the addiction of book porn :) I have to say because of that I have soft spot of Evangaline Anderson and all that she does. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I would recommend it to all who like bookie nookie and multiple partners or menage books.

Bizarre shapeshifter with all kinds of lost, half and full blooded, mates won and losses, asssumption of family ties???, old and new tribes - if you do not know the rules watch out if you did not know anything about being a shapeshifter. Too much going on in this story to make much sense out of it.
Things are about to change for Madeline, who grew alone and in an orphanage, when Jake turns up in the ER where she works.
There is a lot going on in the book and it is at times confusing read (it will have you paging back to see if you missed something).

Oh wow. This was a special kind of terrible. Cheesy sex lines, ridiculous conflict, and way too long. I usually like this author but this story was a huge let down.
Nov 04, 2012 Jeannie rated it liked it
Silly yet sexy. This is a quick, flirty little read that - if you don't take it too seriously - makes for a fun Saturday snuggled by the fire.

I wish there was a second part to this novel because I absolutely loved it. Although I did want to rip out the Elders throats.

Evangeline Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is nerdy enough to have a bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be writing.” Honk if you see her! She is thirty-something and lives in Florida with a husband, a son, and two cats. She had been writing erotic fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to her to try and get paid for ...more
