Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
USA Today bestselling author Kerry Adrienne’s Shifter Wars series comes to its epic conclusion when former enemies align, but is it too late to protect everyone they’ve come to love?
Title: Claiming His Lioness
Author: Kerry Adrienne
Release Date: September 3, 2018
Publisher: Carina Press
Series: Shifter Wars
Genres: Paranormal Romance
This is a paranormal romance and the concluding story in the Shifter Wars series, but it still works well as a standalone IMHO. Whilst the shifter wars have ended, leaving an uneasy peace between the clans, humans are encroaching into Deep Creek, threatening their home, their secret and their very existence. Can the shifter clans learn to work together to protect themselves and their futures?
This is a story of changes in roles, secrets, a common enemy and spiritual guidance. I found it an enthralling read and it is packed with drama and suspense as well as some surprising revelations, too. Humans are planning to run an oil pipeline through the national park, where the shifters secretly roam, and also hoping to kill any large predator that might be a threat to their workers. Can Mason and Lara put aside their differences to work together to unify all the shifter clans and overturn the plans and protect their homes and lifestyle?
Hiding personal attraction, worrying about rejection, keeping secrets and so much more have important roles to play in this suspense filled paranormal romance. It is an engaging read and an action packed page turner that I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into.
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Lara has always relished being a thorn in Mason’s paw. When she was chosen as pride Enforcer, it was easier than ever to get under the passionate shifter’s skin. But with the scent of humans in the air comes a threat she’s powerless to battle alone.
It’s time Lara unites with the one man she needs, the one man she’s secretly drawn to…as if by fate.
If there’s one thing Mason hates more than relinquishing control to a female, it’s the attraction he feels for the fiery lioness. Joining forces with Lara against an insidious enemy only makes their primal bond hotter—and the two of them stronger.
Now it’s up to them, side by side, to bring together three warring shifter clans, win the final fight and save Deep Creek.

Claiming His Lioness Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 Kerry Adrienne
The birds and night animals were active all around them. Though her hearing wasn’t as sensitive as when she moved as a shifter, she still heard them. Scampers and calls to evening plans—all clear to her lioness, who paced inside, longing to get out and run. Lara shushed her, placating her with a promised run later. With summer starting, there’d be plenty of late night runs in the moonlight to the cadence of all the insects and heartbeats in the forest.
A nice fat rabbit sounded perfect for dinner.
Mason motioned her to crouch and she did, crawling up close to him in the brush. She could smell him. Warm, with a streak of fierceness, like a juicy steak with a hint of tangy sauce. A spice she couldn’t name and a scent so intoxicating, she had to move back a bit. She’d been near him too much today. She sniffed again, and he turned and shot her a smile.
She looked away.
What the hell was wrong with her? She wasn’t one to go around sniffing men. She shook her head. I’m just hungry, that’s all.
Mason grabbed her arm. She looked where he was pointing and inhaled sharply. Through the bushes, a short distance away, a smattering of tiny campfires blazed. And tents cast hulking shadows across the lakeshore.
Where were the humans?
The low sound of muffled voices grew louder and Lara strained to hear what was going on. A group of humans—male and at least one female—made their way to the edge of one fire, their faces alight with the bright glow.
They looked happy. None appeared to be armed but why were there so many of them? The lake was remote—how could they have gotten all the equipment so deep into the woods—unless they’d had pack mules.
And why were they at the lake?
Mason’s face mirrored her concerns, his brows slanted and his skin drawn tight. His mouth a firm line. Lara watched him a minute, noting his slightly curved nose—the bump was the only way she could easily tell Marco and Mason apart unless they were talking. Somehow, the imperfection made him even more handsome than his brother.
She looked back at the humans standing around the fire like an army at ease, but aware battle was coming. Most looked out of place—not like seasoned hikers or hunters. More like businessmen without their suits, forced into jeans and T-shirts and shoes they only wore once or twice a year or maybe bought for the outing.
Stranger and stranger.
A large man glanced their way, spotted then, then rushed toward where they crouched. Bile filled Lara’s mouth and her lioness screamed run, but she froze in place. Several other men followed the leader, and within seconds, she and Mason were surrounded by humans.
