This was an amazing story and if you like shapeshifters stories at all, I highly recommend you read it. I loved how original the main characters were as well. The storyline was everything I expected a paranormal genre to have, it had angst, it was fast paced, well written, captivating and hot just what I love in a shifter romance. The characters were fascinating, powerful, and certainly praise-worthy.

I truly loved Mercy! She was lively, spirited and jaunty. She was so strong and brave to fight
Kelli C ~ Jack Sawyer's Heart
Keeping in the paranormal realm, Tia Louise continues to deliver her signature sexy with a fast paced, mystic romance featuring strong shape shifters!

While this author always gives her readers strong alpha men to lust over, she is no slouch at bringing powerful women to the table as well. When a rogue panther, Koa, takes off on a path to find himself and to lose some of the guilt over his past and poor life choices, he is unprepared for a sexy black lynx to rock him in an open field

One Insatiable is a standalone and is part of the Woodland Creek series. I adore Tia Louise, she writes steamy reads that keeps any reader interested. This is my second book of hers in the paranormal theme. The first was vampires and now its shifters. You know I love my paranormal romances so I had high expectations.

What I liked first off was that Mercy, the Heroine, and Koa, the Hero, were already shifters. We did have this odd transition phase where they had to figure out

I loved everything about this!

The story centres on Mercy and Koa, both shifters. But where Mercy is a lynx of a long established and well respected clan, akin to royalty, Koa is a rogue panther that has been kicked out of his pack and trying to build a new life for himself after time spent in prison. When dealing with star-crossed lovers, it doesn’t get much more crossed than this.

Both these characters were great! Mercy is a strong girl with a rebellious streak and fighting for her own dreams an

Full 3.5 star review to be posted on on November 16, 2015.

New to me author : I’ve never read anything by Ms. Louise but when I read the blurb, it covered alot of themes that are catnip to me - a shifter romance with a small, strong and feisty heroine with big, strong hero. I loved that it has some diversity, with a Hawaiian hero in Koa. But it’s the villain and the supernatural otherworldly vibe that takes this to another level.

Once again, Tia Louise has knocked it out of the park; this time with sexy shapeshifters. One Insatiable follows the story of Mercy and Koa. The two of them are strong and equally stubborn. All it takes is one night of passion to change things for these two!

What a sexy paranormal ride! I need my own were-panther, please and thank you. Koa is one of the sexiest men I've read about lately. His troubles stem from a youthful moment of hotheadedness and poor judgment that ended very, very badly. Feeling lost after his punishment, he is roaming across country (as a panther!) while trying to deal with the loneliness of his situation. He is not just a typical traveler, however, and he finds himself passing through a town that is anything but normal.

Be prepared for the first glimpse of what the humble Woodlands Creek has to offer.
Sexy shifters living among us and stories of witches and vampires to top it all off.
It is like watching True Blood all over again.
There is a storyline that mixes the supernatural with the contemporary, which is a special addition for fans of Tia Louise's previous books.

I must say that Tia has done it again. She has taken a few of our favorite characters and a few new ones to give us another paranormal twist.
Her tales are filled with strong, sexy alpha males that never cease to amaze me. Our man Koa is a lone shifter/panther. He is passing through a sleepy town when he runs into our beautifully sassy shifter/lynx Mercy. Mercy is a love and leave them kind of gal.

A sweet tale about a panther and lynx shifter. She's had no idea that get future had already been written for her until she meets up with a sexy panther during a midnight stroll. He thought his life was over until he was pulled to a certain small town and a little lynx cat. Together can they beat the Lord of the underworld. A very easy and entertaining paranormal romance.

One Insatiable is part of the Woodland Creek Collection (30 Authors. 30 Shifter Stories) it is a book loosely related to the One to Hold Series because some characters from that series make an appearance here as well, but it can be read as a standalone novel. This is a brilliant re-telling of a couple timeless mythological tales; if you are any familiar with Roman and Greek mythologies, you will easily recognize the story of the Rape of Proserpina and the sad, sad story of Orpheus and Eurydice. ...more
