The classic Romeo-and-Juliet story of lovers from hostile backgrounds gets a spin, and passions are heightened by literal animal urges, in this supernatural erotic romance story. Shannon, who's part puma, is pursued and nearly raped by a pack of vicious werewolves when she's saved by Anton, an alpha werewolf. The two fall into a sensual tryst but their forbidden love will never be accepted by Anton's pack, and Anton doesn't know if he can trust his own canine instincts. G.C. VanCloudts gives a sexy feline performance of this scary sensual audiobook that will arouse primal fears and lusts.
Shannon is a quarter puma but can't shift. She's just a human with a few extra genes. But she knows how dangerous shifters are and now she's their prey, captured by a group of werewolves for a deadly hunt. Then she's rescued by the biggest werewolf of them all. He's the sexiest male she's ever seen - jet-black hair, muscular body, piercing dark eyes and a growl that heats her blood.
Anton's body responds fervently to Shannon and he vows to protect her with his life - only to discover she's the enemy. As the future alpha of his pack, Anton knows a cat will never be accepted. There'll be hell to pay. But it's mating heat, and he's about to lose all control to that driving sexual need. His wolf wants her, can smell her desire. There's no way to stop it now - his animal won't be denied.
Reader Advisory: This book contains a violent, graphic near-rape scene that is not for the faint of heart.

I love Dohner as an author. However, these books are very different than her previous series. You still have great alpha males but the Werewolf element is something explored differently. Great easy listening with no cringing at the hot bits
I am a fan of Laurann Dohner but this was just terrible. The story's ok until about the middle and then it just gets dumb and boring. My advice - skip this one.
"Super Steaming Alpha Hotness!"
Yowza!! This book is even hotter than the first Mating book! I LOVE these wolf shifters...just a bunch of sexy, muscle bound, alpha hotness!---And the storyline is pretty good too. The 'mating heat' is pretty on the nose, but, overall the exchanges between the characters are quite funny and will make you laugh just as much as it will set your ears on fire. Definitely credit worthy in my book.
"WHO SAYS DOGS & CATS DON'T MIX?......"
Well, they do in this Shifter tale so if you're looking for a h h hot paranormal were-shifter romance then look no further because this delivers very sexy scenes by the chapter full. But please read my thoughts at the end of this review.
Shannon who's one fourth Puma and ignorant about the ways of the Shifter world has been kidnapped and hunted by members of the Harris pack of Werewolves and the outcome for her doesn't look good because she's unable to shift to save herself. Then, just as things look hopeless for her, in growls Anton, purebred son of the Harris' Alpha, he's sexy, handsome, honorable and Shannon, despite being a Kitty Cat, surprisingly brought out his protective side and he was determined to hold on to her..... no matter the cost.
It was an enjoyable plot with a few surprises, likeable main and secondary characters, there was sexual chemistry from the start as the Mating Heat takes hold of them both, but treachery led to violence, villains, a near rape scene which was quite disturbing (so be warned) and pack politics. The graphic sex unfortunately got a bit repetitive and I found myself thinking "oh, here we go again" - don't get me wrong, I like ALL genres of romance (including Erotica) but I would have liked a little more conversation and a little less action to satisfy me.
Worth a credit? From the start this was an exciting listen with tender, touching, funny and romantic parts and it was hot hot hot - so, if you like your Shifter romances a little 'tamer' don't buy this. Unfortunately and surprisingly, this was only a 2 book series (written in 2010 & 11) so many of the likeable characters that filled this listen will probably never get their stories told. So, despite the enjoyment factor, and for this reason only, I would have to say that until there's more books to follow on, I wouldn't bother getting into this series as it's alas going nowhere.
"White Knight in wolfs clothing."
Future Alpha werewolf rescues pretty read head half human half puma shifter. Their clans are sworn enemies ...
This book totally caught me offguard but it was amazing I was so sad I didn't want to end so great I wanted it to have its own serious it was a must listen
"I am still Purring over Anton's Sexyness !"
I've absolutely fallen in love with Laurann's books. They're extremely Sexy, Dramatic and the men are totally Mouthwatering. His Purrfect Mate is no exception!
Anton, an heir-apparent to the local Pack and Shannon - a human with part-Puma shifter blood would at first glance seem to be a total mismatch. But the passion grows between this unlikely duo during the mating heat. Can the Pack, and most importantly his Alpha parents accept his claim to a sworn enemy?
love the storyline can't wait to see what happens to the other brothers especially Vine
"Smoking, growling purrfect 👏🏽"
The cruelty of this universe is astonishing. Poor Shannon goes from grocery shopping to kidnapped almost raped and murdered. Then after her rescue by Anton who I adore from Brady's story she is attacked numerous times. I love the narrator GC VonCloudts great individual character development. I hope cuz Brand gets a story because he is my new favorite werewolf male😍
"Love this paranormal series!"
Anton & Shannon are purr-fect together. Rave, Vaughn & Braydon are hilarious when Brand is driving the van trying to get Shannon back to town. He just can't stop talking about the "heat". Wow, is all I can say about Chapter 14! Extremely erotic! Wow! Wow! Wow!
"Hot and steamy love story"
This is a REALLY HOT and steamy love story, the narration was awesome and it was a great listen.
