Seduction’s Shift is book two in The Shadow Shifters series by A.C. Arthur. Each book in this series is about a different couple but also caries a main theme throughout so it would be better to read the books in order.

from Seduction's Shift:

This book centers on one of Rome’s second in command, Dominick (Nick) Delgado and Ary, a healer that grew up in a remote village in the Brazilian rain forest.

from Seduction's Shift:

Nick and Ary had been watching each other, flirting, both still teenagers. Ary was already training to be a healer, her fut

AC Arthur returns to the Gungi rain forest with Seduction’s Shift. Sabar Tavares returned to the jungle after his attempt of capturing Kalina and killing the East Coast Faction Leader, Roman Reynolds failed. Determined that he would rule both the human and shifter world, he captures Aryiola Serino. He believes that she is the key ingredient that will help his drug cartel grow. But, Aryiola is known as a Curandero or healer in the jungle and she has spent many hours learning and studying

A. C. Arthur ha creado un mundo exótico y atractivo, y si bien es cierto que su historia tiene parecido con otras tantas (por el tema de los cambiantes), creo que la autora ha sabido ponerle su sello distintivo y, sobre todo, logra que esta resulte muy entretenida y te deje con ganas de más. Seducción letal es una lectura ligera que se lee en un abrir y cerrar de ojos. Tiene mucha acción, suspense y romance, tres ingredientes bien combinados que dan como resultado una historia con la que pasar u ...more

Me encanto esta segunda parte. Todo el misticismo que los envuelve a todos y la unión que tienen me encanta.
Sigue el misterio que guarda Baxter, el que todo lo sabe.
Nick todo un encanto, todo el aumento en cuanto volvio a ver a Ary, al principio me molesto que no se diera cuenta que el solo trataba de protegerla, pero viendo el ambiente en que creció se entiende que no quiera que se repita la historia.

Book Review-Seduction's Shift Summary

When she finds herself kidnapped by a enemy, Saber, she knows that she needs to find a way to escape. He wants her for reasons he won’t reveal, and she knows its only a matter of time before her situation will become worse. She also finds that her own father has been working with Saber for years, and has betrayed her to him. Nick D
Shawnette two is NOT as good as book one...Nick and Ary just don't seem to have that same love connection as Kalina and Rome...the CONSTANT verbal sparring is very FRUSTRATING...almost ANNOYING at times...although there's LOADS of sexual chemistry...they have MAJOR issues connecting on any other level...I also found the dialogue throughout a bit just didn't have the same flow as the first book...that being said...once AGAIN the action and suspense is on point...and the full cast i ...more

I did not enjoy this book as much as I did the first in this series, there was more sex which made the book more sexy but the dialogue was dry to me. I really wanted to like this book because I thought the first book was so good but this one just fell flat for me. I have a feeling the next book will be the best at least I hope so.This author is one of my favorites but this book is not.

Honestly I just couldn't connect with Nick at all. He was such an asshole for most of the book. Ugh.

I can't wait for Xavier and Caprise's story next. I'm just hoping that X isn't the pompous ass that Nick is. All his macho bullshit pissed me off.

Si el primero me gustó, este me ha fascinado. Conocemos un poquito más de este mundo de los shadow shifters y los misterios que los rodean. Sus orígenes, sociedad y por supuesto el nuevo orden que parece estar forjándose en EE.UU. Me han encantado los dos protas de esta historia, aunque he de decir que X me tiene muerta de curiosidad y que quiero saber mucho más de él, así como de la hermana de Nick.

Woohoo! I was so excited to get this book and read it. I loved A.C. Arthur’s first book in this series, TEMPTATION RISING, and I couldn’t wait to jump into this one! Once again, Ms. Arthur has truly proven amazing in her paranormal romance skills. She blends the perfect amount of romance with a suspenseful plot line, the hot shifting jaguars, and the women who love them.

Seduction Shift is the second installment of the Shadow Shifters series. Ms. Arthur presents with another riveting story of this secret society and their quest to live within the human society, yet remain unknown. The characters in this story are strong, sexy and yet vulnerable. As with all of Ms. Arthur’s writings, her characters speak to you and then they have a way of staying with you as though they are real…

free book for honest review.

Ary is a healer for her tribe and has given her heart to Nick. Sabar, who is a rogue, kidnaps her and tries to use her for his own drug deals in the states. Nick hopes to save Ary and must unleash the beast within to get her back and protect her.

This book is action, one type or another, from page one. It is well written and entertaining from beginning to end. I highly recommend it and will read it again. It is part 2 of the series, but is

OMG!!!!! Seduction Shift is an excellent book. Can we say HOT!!!!!!!!!!!HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!HOT!!!!!!!!!!!! Nick and Ary story was great. In this book AC explained why Nick was so angry and I am so happy that Nick and Ary finally reunite. The book was told very well. You can see the closeness of the 3 best friends Roman, Nick, and X and when she introduces Nick's baby sister and her personality it was funny. You will feel the intense heat in Nick and Ary relationship. I can't wait for X's book.
I cannot wait for Passion's Prey, X and Caprise are going to set my kindle on fire!!

PNR with emphasis on the R - lots of headboard banging in this one. The're always some anal play- I'm always squinting wondering there must be someone who is turned on by that- EWE! so the girls have anuses or rear entrance- of course they all love it- the sex is always great even when it's going up the hershey highway. So there are anuses but no poop and if there is aroma, it's so sweet and sexy it will make the man so hard his dick hurts as it strains against the zipper of his jeans..

I gave this one 5 stars because it was really pretty good. This book gave us more insight about the shifters and where they came from. The chemistry between Nick and Ary was awesome. Nick needed some anger management classes though, because he got pissed off quit often and he would just take things to another level. Glad things worked out between him and Ary. Great read.
Well done! Shadow Shifters is a series that you want to read. You can connect with teh characters and it is very nice that they are present in the both books. I wish the series was already written, I like to start at the begining and keep reading. I guess I will have to read it again after AC has written a few more.

First off this is a new aurthor for me so i shouldnt put much pressure on the first book but... this one is the SHiZZz. Love it. I didnt like the first one so i was skeptical about reading the second one but i put that aside and read it and loved it. Cant wait for your next book Ms. Arthur.

2.7 stars. I just can't seem to connect with these books as I'd like. Some of their reasoning reads more convenient than true to me - I hate that - forcing plot. There's still a lot of explanations/tutoring and the voice of the story seems unnatural somehow.

This one was so much better then the first and I enjoyed the first. This one moved faster and flowed better. The characters had so much spark and loved that things weren't easy for them. Rainforest novels are always interesting and fun to read. The adventure was amazing. Very good second part :)

I normally love AC Arthur, but the second in this series, just moved really slow. It was almost a repeat of the first. And there were huge disconnects between Nick and Ary. To much repeat, I don't want this, but yet I do.
