Anton the Alpha wolf who is also the next in line to take over the pack and Shannon the quarter puma will suffer a lot until they mate in this book.

Especially Shannon suffers from page 1 until the last page.
Firstly, Shannon will be almost raped and killed by a few stupid wolves from Anton's pack.
Then, almost all the wolves from Anton's pack will dislike her because she is a cat and she smells funny.
Then, Anton's mother will give her to the other pumas because she wants her son to be the next Alp

My not-so-guilty pleasure when I'm not looking to expand my mind or feel too emotional

Yes the title is horrible but this was Purrfect (sorry couldn't help myself) for what I needed. I was cheering at the sexual tension. When they finally did it, it was pretty fucking hot - or should I say pretty hot fucking. I was seriously loving everything… Until the plot got in the way.

Now I’m not a plot person. I’d prefer relatable characters and good writing any day. But if and when plot

What a need-to-change-my-panties read!

Shannon is 15% puma and 85% human, but that didn't stop a pack of werewolves to kidnap her and then make a prey out of her. They are chasing Shannon down and are very eager to kill her...maybe they will fuck her first though.

Not a complicated plot. Ii was expecting to get more of the characters of the previous book, ‘cause in Laurann Dohner’s books there’s always a little feedback about previous characters stories…but here was quite short. Anyway!

So MATING SEASONyou do understand what this is gonna be about given that they are in that kind of season, right?. Have clarified that…let me say that this was like an animalistic version of Romeo and Juliet.

We start out with Shannon climbing a tree to save herself from getting raped and killed by a pack of werewolves.

Enter Anton, the next alpha in line to take over the pack. Once he gets Shannon out of the tree, he discovers that she is part puma shifter, an enemy of the werewolves, but he can't seem to control his strong desire for her. He decides that she will go through the mating heat with him which can last up to two weeks!

I really liked this shifter romantica, it was much better than the first book in the series. The hero was much nicer but still sexy and alpha. We also get his POV unlike the first book. I liked the main characters and it had a decent storyline.

5 His Purrfect Mate Stars

Ah ha! The Wolf and the Pussy Cat… hehe. I loved the dynamic of this book!

It was so different from anything I can remember reading. Shannon isn’t really a “true” cat shifter because she can’t actually shift. But that doesn’t make her any less a target for her “enemy.”

She is left treed and fighting for her life, only to be rescued by the unlikely hero.

I loved that Anton is not at all prejudiced to something or someone different than himself. And his protective instinct

This one was 100 times better than the first. The hero and heroine were actually quite likeable. Anton was so possessive and sweet with Shannon. I loved it. Shannon was adorable whenever she was frightened and practically climbed Anton.

This was a sweet love story. If she continues this series I hope they are as enjoyable as this one and not like the first book.

The second book follows Grady’s brother Alton, and ¼ Puma shifter (who can’t shift) Shannon. This one starts out exactly the same with Anton swooping in and saving her from rape/murder. The “frowned upon” coupling is even worse because Alton is the future alpha, and Shannon is not only human, but Puma. (all cats are their enemy)

I didn’t like this one as much, because I feel like the cracks are starting to show… like Shannon’s Puma side really is described as a housecat which doesn’t fit. There
This was a pretty hot shifter book. I always love it when shifters of different species get just an extra layer of danger and intrigue.

Shannon is only a quarter puma but that's enough to trigger the wolves hatred. Thankfully, Anton is there to intervene and offer protection.
Phew!! This is steeeeeeeeeeeamy. Hot hot hot! Pure porn, with M-F sex between a puma who can't shift and a werewolf in human form...mostly. Minimal profanity. Minimal plot. Some violence. Some sexual violence -- see spoiler below. A handful of typos.

The characters were not irritating, as sometimes happens with erotica. I liked them. Anton the werewolf becomes instantly and completely committed to "his purrfect mate" Shannon.

This sequel is sooo much better than book one! I enjoyed Anton's story!

Shannon's part Puma, but her trait is not as sharp as it should be so she still mostly human. Anton couldn't resist her yet at the same time, Shannon's considered his enemy. What will happen next?

Phew, this series definitely full of sex scenes. Haha. I enjoyed the plot though, Anton's much more gentle than Grady and I'm grateful for it. Plus the storyline is not as complicated as Mate Set.

Overall I liked it. Definitely going

Loved this book, better than the 1st because the heroine is really sweet, and genuinely nice. The H falls for her fast, and is willing to give up everything to keep her safe. Lots of evil baddies, and steamy times and a sweet HEA.

Recommends it for: readers that like shifter books
Now THIS one, I liked. Mate Set was a little so-so for me, but this one? MUCH better. Written a little more in the style of the New Species books. Shannon is the ultimate damsel in distress and Anton just grabs on to her and will NOT LET GO, no matter what. The plot was better, the action was better, and the emotions, sexy dialogue and hot sex was non-stop. The loyalty of the pack to Anton and Shannon was, well, frankly, pretty stunning considering apparently that werewolves hate pumas enough to ...more

I liked this one. The shifter world seems pretty clear. The hero was nicely alpha but wasn't an ass and he was never nasty to the heroine. I was pretty amused at the way the heroine climbed anything in reach when she was scared. The characterization of both of them was well done. I liked how even the "good" shifters were not all good. The writing was nicely done and the plot made sense. The sex was plenty hot and there was plenty of it. I'll definitely read more in this series.

Great follow-up to the first in the Mating Heat series. I got a little irritated with the see the cat, kill her mentality of all of the wolves with the exception of a couple. I'm a firm believer in the treat someone how you want to be treated camp, and a lot of the wolves were just plain buttheads. I look forward to the next in the series. She definitely left it open for AT LEAST two more books with the mention of Von's human leaving him and Brand's half-breed spotted leopard leaving him. It wil ...more
Woowza, that is another uber hot read for this series!!! Good lord, warn a gal so she can have a cold shower ready!!!

I love yummy Alpha to be Anton. He is just scrumptious!!! A gal could do worse than a smexy bossy wolf. Sure he was a player before, but once his wolf decides on a mate, all bets are off!!!

Shannon is sweet, if a bit naive. I understand she is fighting deep cat instincts, that is the only reason I did not find her a wimp. She has plenty of sass and gumption, if she could just get t

Is this it? This is all we get out of this series? Ms. Dohner needs to move her ass and write books for the other 3 brothers AND one for their cousin Brand. This is a SEX FEST story. Hawt mating sex doggy style with a kitty cat is pretty AWESOME.

There is some mild shifter sex, but nothing full on. This was marked as a BDSM book and I'm not sure it qualifies. There was a scene were the heroine, Shannon is tied down with a collar on her neck as several men try to gang bang her in a non con kind o

I really enjoyed His Purrfect Mate (Mating Heat #2). Upon meeting Anton in book 1 of the Mating Heat series (Mate Set), he was interesting but held no true appeal for me. That all changed in this book as I couldn't help but fall for both the man and his beast!

Anton, werewolf shifter and next in line to be Alpha of his pack, and Shannon, one-quarter puma shifter who was raised outside of the shifter world, meet when he rescues her from the young werewolf pups intent on catching and killing a "cat

Stunned, she gaped at him. “Take out?”
His eyes darkened to near black. “I’ll kill them if they hurt you.”

I loved this right from the beginning. A werewolf who falls for a cat, which is frowned upon in his pack (I just love things that are forbidden, makes it extra steamy) =)

He’d go insane if something were to happen to his sexy little kitten

The brothers were so funny. I have to admit, I am a sucker when a man kneels down and pledge his love to the woman without any guilt, just speak from the heart.

Better get out your oven mitts to hold this one, it is HOT!

I got into the story right away, and read it straight through. The hero is yummy and the sex scenes are something else! If you are a fan of erotic romance and need a summer pick-me-up, you can't go wrong with this book.

It is the 2nd of a series. You could read it without reading the first and not be lost, but i'm glad i read the first one.

This was another cover to cover quick read, regardless of length, for me. I enjoyed this one much better than the first mainly because Anton didn't act like a tool like our poor Grady did, and make a huge mess out of everything. The characters were sexy and entertaining and the sex was hot. Fun series! ...more
