This is the first story that I have read from Michelle M. Pillow. It is a short story and was pretty good. I love shape shifters and this was about big cats..... Panthers, Lions, Tigers, etc.

Eve Matthews is a vet at Jamison Wildlife Reserve. Her job is her life, she practically lives on the reserve. Eve saves a black panther "Midnight" from being killed by the police after being found injured and almost dead in a barn. Eve comes to the rescue and keeps a close eye on Midnight. Eve feels so prote

The werewolf and the vet idea is cute in general, this one is more creepy than cute but that's kinda the charm of these ebooks right?

I'm trying to think what would be a more entertaining spin on this story...I came up with the werewolf and the taxidermist.

Or the werewold and the Bob Barker.

I found myself laughing at some of the one star Amazon reviews of this book. It's like they wouldn't know a good book if it bit them in the butt. Someone had gotten agitated because of the name of the black panther. This person must know nothing about animal lovers. I have known dozens of people who named their animals "Midnight". And that's a pretty tame name compared to some of the monikers out there.

Secondly, some of these same people need to get an imagination. I don't think it's too far fe
Evelyn Maitland is a veterinarian at a big cat animal preserve. She loves animals and usually feels more comfortable around them than people. While working at the preserve she saves a black panther she names Midnight. Little does she know that Midnight is really a shape shifter and he can’t change until he heals.

The story is only 51 pages long so there isn’t a lot of character development. It would have been very interesting to get more background about the characters to answer some questions b

Ok, so I didn't realize the book I'd be reading was more of a short story rather than a going into it I thought it would definitely be more developed. We don't know much of the mythology that goes with these shifters, only that Eve nursed Viktor back to health while in his Panther form and how much he wants her. But we only get a surface story. Apparently there are other shifter cats on the preserve, and then apparently suddenly Viktor and Eve are mates, but we don't know how that cam ...more

Enjoyable, steamy, shifter romance...

Animal Instinct is a quick, enjoyable, steamy shifter romance story. Within the limitations of a shorter story, the characters are well-enough developed and very likable. Pillow's prose has structural variety and flows very nicely, making it easy to immerse oneself in the story. If you like a quick and steamy read, I can recommend Animal Instinct.

Recommended for readers over 18 due to explicit sexual content.
Lilly goes to a hidden from humans shifter bar (which she's unaware of) to find a man to have a one night stand and become pregnant then return to her normal life. What is didn't bargain on was a sexy cougar falling in love with his mate. Great story. Really funny. Great HEA. Can't wait for mason story.

Short, would like to have seen the background history delved into. Interesting read and lots of potential for sequels.
