Kaya is a shape-shifter, and having been left behind by her family she's spent most of her life as a cougar in the wild. She's been watching Jericho and Hunter, two men who live in an isolated cabin, and they have been watching her. When she is hurt, she allows them to help her--and they discover that their wild cougar companion is in fact a beautiful woman. They both form an attachment to her, and are reluctant to leave her even when their work calls them away.

Really, I liked "Amber Eyes" much more than it's predecessor "Golden Eyes." The relationship build-up is slower, more natural. I especially liked how in the beginning Hunter and Jericho would trade attitudes off on things - Hunter was open to the cougar, but not the girl; Jericho was open to the girl, but not the cougar. It was creatively ironic. ^_^;;

But then, after they found out the truth and the three of them grew closer, I was a little disappointed about how Hunter took the prime roll in ev
Once part of a menage relationship, Hunter and Jericho both agreed to never enter into another menage out of respect for their former partner. Hunter, a loner, has formed an attachment to a cougar that has been hanging by the cabin Hunter and Jericho share between assignments. Jericho is just waiting for the cougar to eat his best friend, but when it becomes injured Hunter is adamant it needs their help.

As if taming a cougar is not weird enough, they find a naked woman in their cabin. After a r

this was the sequel to Golden Eyes. in this one we see where Kaya ended up after being captured from her home in Alaska. Coincidentally she ends up in the mountain of the small town her sister is living in. In cougar form she was watching a pair of men who lived in a cabin, longing for some human contact. after caring for her in cougar form she makes herself known to them as human. from there the relationship heads to a HEA menage, and HEA's all around really.

I personally have an issues with this "sharing lovers" thing, but the book was a good read. I was a bit disappointed towards the end because I expected someone to at least call out Hunter and Jericho for taking advantage of Kaya (EVEN IF THEY DIDN'T)or something towards that extent or maybe Jericho or Hunter died on the mission before you introduce this "relationship" to the girl's family but then who knows why things happen the way they did. Had a hard time rating, 3 stars or 4, cause even thou ...more

I loved Maya Banks's Highlander series so I thought I would give this one a try. I'm not impressed, but I'm rather tired of the whole shapeshifter, werewolf, vampire stuff. This book features a shape shifting woman and 2 uber men. My biggest problem with this book was that I've never seen 2 men share French fries from McDonalds much less what these 2 share. I will continue to read books by Banks but will defiantly stay out of her paranormal novels.

Since this was my first dip into M/F/M, I found the triangle quite nicely done. And because I'm not a fan of love triangles, I guess this is saying something. Plot- and mythology-wise, though, it was seriously lacking.

Hunter and Jerico live alone high in the country mountains. The go off on missions for long lengths only to return to cabin in the mountains. Hunter and Jerico have lost the woman they love and they respect her by the missions they run. They are loners, they do not need anyone. Hunter has been for the most part very cold until he comes across a cougar. The cougar keeps getting braver and braver by getting a little closer each time he spots her. Eventually the cougar makes her way all the way int ...more

Yes, this book has a menage relationship. No, you should not read it (definitely not rate it) if you're "not into that kind of thing". *sigh* I don't read mysteries because I don't like mysteries. I also don't go around reading mysteries, then rating them poorly because there was a mystery to solve throughout the entire book. It's just dumb, and it's not fair to the author who is probably pretty good at writing in their chosen genre. I noticed that a lot of the 1-star reviews of this book declar ...more
4.0 RATING- I'm surprised I ended up like this story as much as I did. I rarely read paranormal/shifter books but I had the opportunity to borrow Golden Eyes and Amber Eyes and enjoyed both. (Both stories are connected but could be read as stand-alones. If reading both books, Golden Eyes should be read first). Maybe it was the damsel/shifter in distress and the lonely mercs that got to me, but this was a nice, short read and I wish the author had written more in the series. I've been a bit burne ...more

The star rating given reflects my opinion within ‘the official goodreads rating system’.

I don’t really give a rat-fuck that there are some who think I ‘owe’ an explanation for my opinion. Nope, nada, and not sorry about it.

Sometimes I may add notes to explain what my opinions are based on, and sometimes I don’t. I do this for me, on my books, in my library and I don’t ‘owe’ any special snowfla

I am a great fan of Maya Banks, but I have to be honest. This was the worst book of hers I have read. It has the makings of a good book, but the plot feels completely undeveloped. The emotions are unrealistic and undeveloped. They just don't feel real to the writing. I see them written there but they're not realistically occurring through the story line. The characters are OK, but the dialog is flat and unnatural. This book was not worth my reading time except that there are some spicy bits that ...more

I've never been one to easily absorb fantasy/paranormal romances. I can understand how it might be fun for authors to write, though.
The story is about a shape-shifter who changes from mountain lion to woman. I was intrigued by the mountain lion-aspect since I adore cats. But she also finds herself with "two mates". I kept wondering how that was going to work since, in the animal kingdom, the males usually have big fights--and sometimes to the death--over a female mate. But since these two men

Well well well.

Kaya's badly injured and when he seek for protection, she stumbled into Jericho and Hunter. They saved her and pet her. Yes, Kaya's still in shape of cougar, mountain lion. Until one day she can't take it anymore, so shifted back into human form..

This one's longer than Golden Eyes. I liked it. But again, to me Maya Banks isn't really good at menage stories. The relationship between them is a bit unbalanced and I don't understand why it has to be Hunter who took Kaya's v-card whe

Menage story, but so sweet. The heroine is a shifter who hasn't had much to do with humans, and her shape is a cougar. The heroes are yummy, so caring. I love how the men both react differently to the heroine in both her forms.

I mean, a hero who is soft with animals...whoa baby!
And another hero is just yummy...whoa baby again!

The sex is hot but sweet, too. Nice read. I don't think I've read any of Maya Bank's books before, but this won't be my last! I'm going to check out her other books now, st
Ménage à trois never been my cup of tea

But it's well written. Like all the first books from banks are, before the quality dropped greatly.
Like I said I don't like ménage a trois stories but was curious about this one.
I love Hunter. Jericho is nice but for me doesn't bring anything to the core of the love story. Not that I don't like his character, I do. But I prefer Kaya and Hunter as a couple.
It's a bit too convenient at this end: which is for that I make 4 stars.
Kaya lived there, in the mounta
I love this story. Very well written. Ms. Banks makes an amazing story believable and touching. You can see the caring and love develop between the characters so sweetly. The men are strong and protective but little Kaya is strong in her own way too. I wish there were more books in this series!

Reading the prequel, Golden Eyes, first isn't necessary but it, too, is a good story. In that book, Duncan's thoughts as he interacts with the cheetah, and at the discovery of the woman-who-is-a-cheetah ar

If you want to read this book, be sure you are in for some major fantasy reading. Pretty much nothing about this story is even remotely believable, but if you are interested in complete fantasy, it's not a bad read.

For me, it takes a while to get into a book when absolutely nothing about it is familiar to me. This was one of those books. I'm a fast reader and hardly ever stop reading once I've started so I did finish this one, but at times it was difficult.

I downed the rate a star because I forgot giving it a review making it seem that it doesn't strike much on the interest. I love the cougar shift thingy but it's kinda weird. Like reality clashing with fantasy and it feels so wrong. The ending...hmmm..where she found her family was kinda unexpected. When the POV turned Duncan I was asking what for and I found out, that his wife is Kaya's sister.
The sex part was...fine. Not that good really cause it is tamed down and its a menage. Guess that is as

As always, Maya Banks has a way with the menage genre, and this book is no exception. It is also a paranormal novella with a gentle and caring edge to the story. Two men, both are wanting to make a difference in the world but not necessarily wanting to be involved in a social scene. Enter a beautiful animal that seems to want to be with them, and when they are least expecting it, they find a beautiful woman in their mud room. There are really sizzling encounters between these three--typical Bank ...more

Kaya has lived a solitary life in the mountains of Colorado since her separation from her family when just a child in her cougar form. Despite her isolation from humanity, she finds herself drawn to Hunter and Jericho. She approaches them after being hurt, and they work to ensure her safety though she is reluctant. The relationship is a slow build, so that part I really did enjoy, but this one just wasn't as good as the first in this series. I felt like the HEA at the end was just too neatly tie ...more

This is the sequel to Golden Eyes. I enjoyed this story and wish that it had been a little longer. The characters were wonderful and the setting outstanding. While the story is shorter not novella thing but not novel length either there is a lot packed into each of the pages. I enjoyed seeing the characters from the previous story again. While both these stories are an unusal take on the shapeshifting legend they are enjoyable none the less. I don't think you can go wrong with a story written by ...more
Hunter and Jericho live in the mountains. They have been seeing a cougar around. They get her to come into their cabin. In the middle of the night Jericho wakes up and finds a naked beautiful girl in the kitchen. He scares her and she runs out into the snowy night. He and Hunter track her down in a den and rescue her. They start to fall in love with her. But she has a secret. Will they still want her when they know her secret?
It was just ok. I did not get attached to the characters. The pregnancy was out of nowhere and felt like plot filler. I did not really get into the sex scenes. I can deal with the "this can never happen" I read PNR, it will NEVER happen. However, the author needs to make me believe in the story. She needs to make these people and their lives real to me. That did not happen. Banks is a good author this was just not her best work. IMO.
