What the books has to say:
Shapeshifter Prince Jarlath Leandros of the planet Viros is a man who understands duty. As heir, he’s had his future as leader of the House of the Cat mapped since childhood. Boring! Jarlath yearns for an indefinable more.
Keira Cloud is beautiful and sexy, she’s independent and confident, and not only is she an enemy from the House of Cawdor, but her stepchildren accuse her of murder. Not a suitable woman for the prince, but Jarlath aches to claim her.
When the House of the Cat comes under attack, Jarlath is thrust into the middle of danger where life or death is the only option. A war is brewing, one that brands Jarlath and Keira enemies, yet their hearts shout otherwise and their animal selves—the leopard and the crow—care nothing for conventional barriers. Right or wrong, passion blooms out of control and with the city under siege soon Jarlath’s life is anything but boring. Now all he needs to do is survive…
What I have to say:
His whole life has been mapped out for him, but Jarlath yearns for an indefinable more which he finds in the beautiful and sexy but unsuitable Keira Cloud …now all he has to do is survive in this spellbinding paranormal romance.
Jarlath aches to claim Keira but the pressures of being the heir are standing in his way also he’s a cat shifter and she’s a crow shifter ….entirely unsuitable right? These strong captivating characters capture the heart and seduce readers into their story and they defy everyone as their attraction grows hotter and hotter until they give into their scorching desires with some hot and steamy sex scenes. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot builds anticipation throughout with lots of suspense, excitement and passion while the emotional turmoil of the relationship as well as the fallout from the battles taking place adds lots of depth to the story.
There is never a dull moment as an enemy suddenly surfaces and lays siege to the palace and surrounding towns adding lots of danger and excitement with mysterious magical battles and that’s just the tip of the ice berg, there’s the internal conflicts and pressures heaped upon a Jarlath’s head and someone from Keria’s past wants her for his very own. The well written scenes and details paint vivid images that capture the imagination and make it easy for the reader to picture each and every scene and the well orchestrated suspense draws the reader in ensuring that they can’t put the story down until they have read every last word.
The story has an old world historical feel but at the same time has a futuristic feel that makes an awesome setting for the characters and the intriguing plot. I was completely enthralled with Jarlath and Keira’s story from the very beginning and I can’t wait to read the next one.

Introducing Shelley Munro:
Shelley lives in New Zealand with her husband.
Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A year long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world. Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.
While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.
Shelley can usually be found at:
