Free on Amazon, if you're interested.

I made it almost 10% into this short story before they said what they were forcing her to do.

Oh I'm sorry is that not enough information for you?
Would you like to know what she has to do??
Would you like some backstory???
Yeah well so would I!!
Here's your backstory...Nikki is a cougar, Merrick is a wolf and Roane who is mentioned for about 2 pages is his brother and also wolf.

Highly erotic so I don't recommend anybody under 18 to read this but oh boy it was really good. I quickly fell into the storyline and could not stop reading until done!

Nikki has been chosen by the Elders to be the queen but she doesn't feel as though she is qualified...she's not even a wolf! She's a cougar! It's up to Merrick to convince her that not only is she qualified to be his queen but has all the qualifications she needs to share his bed!

Fury (Otherkin #1) This book wasn't worth my time! The hero was a complete jerk, forcing himself on the heroine a couple of times, all because her body had a physical reaction to him. I don't like reading rape or almost rape scenes in my romance novels, so it never recovered from the horrible rating. To me, forced sex is not erotica! Deleted this book and all others of the author's works that I had from my Kindle library and will be avoiding her in the future.

Recommends it for: Everyone 18+ (has erotic sex scenes so not suitable for kiddies)

OMG this is the best short novella i have read for a while.
i should be a proper novel, it shouldn't have been made into a short novella.
It's too good for that. it had a bit of eveything
Erotic sex scenes, a fight scene, betrayal, romance, kidnapping, shapeshifting.
I'm not going to go on or i will give away the book, and i reccomend people to read this one.

It was okay. I enjoyed it.

Really good for an erotica story. Well written, sexy, great description of a shifters PoV, and I really liked the characters. I would have probably given it 4/5, except I generally prefer erotica on the side with a greater focus on plot.

Again I downloaded this one Free from Amazon. I should start by saying that I only read the words "shifter" "cougar" "Werewolf" "mate" and totally missed the "highly erotic" words. I readily admit that I usually avoid erotica as I like a "story" to my books not just steamy scenes. Having said that sure this one is erotica, there's no other way to describe it but, and it's quite a large but this book does have a story to it too. I love shifter books and the whole "true one mate" principa

So the story is that Nikki shifts into a cougar when she shifts. She has lead a very solitary life and only came into her "shifts" later in life rather than at puberty like most shifter's. So when Nikki find the place called Fury that is home to many shifter's, she finally feels at home amongst her own kind.
Then the elders speak and declare her the alpha female, which means she will be the mate of the alpha male. Nikki must choose between the Nathy brothers, Merrick and Roane. Merr

This is an example of a story where the concept was really good, but the execution not so much. The story starts off with Nikki (heroine) running away from two males and the impending responsibility of becoming alpha female to the Fury pack (town full of shifters, not just werewolves but were cats, too, of which she is one). Now, when they catch her, the two males, Roane and Merrick, brothers, apparently just decide that Merrick should have her and the plot settles into a nice 'lust at first sig ...more
A free short story ..Review of Fury by Anya Bast I have finally come to the point where I have overloaded the kindle. As I was going through the kindle library I discovered this book. Turns out this is free on Amazon if you are interested.

Cougar shifter and a big pack of wolf shifters in a sexy fantasy romance story.
Nikki is chosen to become the Alpha-female of the pack (weird choice for the Elders because she is the only non-wolf female, but we need something to push the story along so...) and she must choose between the two Alpha brothers whom ever wins her will become the next leader to the pack. Nikki already is attracted to one brother, Merrick so in a way he is probably going to be the leader, but Nikki doesn't make it easy

The first books I read by Anya Bast were her Elemental Witches series so I already knew that these would be hot and they are. The Otherkin is a (two-part so far) series about shifters. Fury is about Nikki, a cougar shifter, who has been told that she has been chosen to be the Alpha Queen of the Fury pack and that Merrick, the Alpha King, is to be her mate. Although Nikki has felt a very strong attraction to Merrick ever since she moved to Fury, she runs away - both from the attraction and the re ...more

I want to say I really loved this book - it was really good - But I think I'm missing the main idea - I'm not sure which of her books go with the "other kin" shifters, but I think I need to find out. I really did enjoy this book though.

Learning about Nikki and Merrick's story - Nikki was forced into becoming the Alpha Queen of Fury - the only problem is she has to Mate with Merrick - since he's suppose to be the Alpha King - Oh and lets' not forget , Merrick and his Pack are Wolves - where as N

So I'd never officially read an ebook before and found this one randomly through the kindle for free. And since it was an author I was familiar with I figured why not.

This is a short story and very erotic. There are a few typing errors that I across but nothing too major.

Over all this a nice quick read with very nice "steamy scenes". I kinda wish it had been longer just so we could have gotten a better background story of Nikki and Merrick.,.but I suppose the whole point of of the story was fo

I'm kind of tired of the "kicking ass and taking names" women, but this one was pretty whimpy. Nikki is chosen by a counsel to be queen and I guess being mate to the alpha werewolf is part of the job. The only problem is, she's a cougar shifter. The short story starts with a kind of adult hide and seek, with Merrick's brother bowing out. Nikki's not sure she's right for either job so she takes off. Merrick finds her and brings her back. There's some rival pack problems, someone in their pack is ...more
3 1/2 stars
Short, steamy read...and it was free! Enough of a story to leave you wanting a bit more that you would continue the series, although I wish it had been a tad longer. At one point the story moves from one scene to another, and momentarily I was confused thinking I had skipped a page. The transition could have somewhat smoother, but the writing was good, over-the-top HOT and I want to read the next novella, Tranquility, which is also free. Thanks Ms. Bast!

I've heard great things about this author, but this was my first foray into her tales. I liked the story, but it seemed a little under edited. There were mistakes I just didn't expect from an author that was so prolific. Regardless I will try out some other of her books, as I think she is a pretty good story teller.

WOW! This one hit the ground running (literally and figuratively) and didn’t let up the sexy times for most of the book. I was surprised to walk about feeling that there was enough story and world building that it worked.

"You know what they say, bitch, dogs droll and cats rule."

Super compressed story about a cougar shifter who must decide whether or not to become alpha queen of wolves in the small town of Fury.

If you're not a fan of fated-to-be-mated couples, best skip this one.

Las escenas eróticas fueron muy sexy pero el complemento de acción fue muy rápido. aunque creo que voy por el próximo libro. es la primera vez que leo a esta autora y creo que podría seguir sus historia.

Pretty much drooled over Merrick. This was a great short story. Even better that it was free. The ending left a question open about who was the spy? Hopefully in the next one that will be reveled.

Quick thoughts: There’s a fine line between pleasure and pain, but rape just isn’t one of them in my perspective.

Thoughts/ Review:

I’m still at a crossroads about how I want to approach my thoughts on the book since most of them revolve around the first 40% which really turned it upside down for me. To take you back, and it won’t ruin too much of the story the first few scenes are sex scenes. Which while they were pretty erotic and in any other situation I would be lapping up, to me could only be

Seeing as this was my very first erotic novel, it's going to keep a special place in my heart :)

It's a pretty quick read, and seeing as it takes a bit for these two to get together, I appreciated a teasing prologue of sorts to keep me invested in the inevitable smut coming my way! The only reason I gave it four, instead of five, stars, is merely because neither the plot, nor the characters really go all that deep past surface level. There's nothing really wrong with that, for most readers, but f

This had a lot of potential to being really great. Just felt a little unfinished. It didnt end on a cliffhanger it was a HEA. It was really fast to get these characters together.
