Hour of the Lion (The Wild Hunt Legacy Book 1)

“Put Victoria with two Alpha brothers, and wow, oh wow, your socks will be knocked off.”

First a Marine, then a black ops agent, Victoria Morgan knows the military is where she belongs…until a sniper’s bullet changes her life. Trying to prove she’s not washed up, she rescues a young man from kidnappers. When the dying boy transforms into a cougar—and bites her—she learns of an entire hidden society. He begs her to inform his grandfather of his death and to keep the secret of the shifters’ existence. She can’t refuse, but what if the creatures pose a danger to the country she swore to protect?

As guardian of the shifter territory, Calum McGregor wields the power of life and death over his people. When a pretty human female arrives in their wilderness town, he and his littermate become increasingly concerned. Not only is the little female hiding something, but she is far more appealing than any human should be.

While investigating the shifters, Victoria begins to fall in love with the werecat brothers and the town as well. For the first time in her life, she might have a real home. Her hopes are crushed when a deadly enemy follows her from the city, and the shifters discover she knows their secret. Now nobody is safe—least of all Victoria.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot sex, believable characters

This book starts with a high tension scene and pulls you in immediately. The author has created a heroine who behaves consistently given her background and the plot complications that develop because of her choices grow out of her character. I enjoyed this book even though the sex the heroine had with one of the two men was mildly dom/sub and that's not my thing. The author skirts the problem of not having a safe word because the participants are emotionally linked and he knows that she's only unsure and doesn't actually mean "No." That didn't work for me. However the sex with the other man felt mutually passionate and joyful.

The relationships were more developed than just sex, making the emotional dilemmas believable.This is the first in a series and Sinclair does a good job of creating an entire community to set future stories in. I'll be looking for Book 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtle shifters

This book is so good even after reading it multiple times. It is the start of a great series with lots of world building, and I still pick up new details on re-reads. It's a paranormal story set in the mountains and while being paranormal \supernatural it's a subtler feeling take on it. It feels rooted in history and legend, maybe with things lost over time but not gone. It's paranormal with shifters and far and demons and such but it's not eccentric, or overly dramatic if that makes sense. This story does have its own HEA but there is a kind of large over-arching story / problem that continues into future books. And the romance is hot. It's to me this kind of slow burn meets fast burn. It's also a menage/why choose type love where the men are solely romantically focused on the woman. That being said doesn't mean there's not some hot, interesting, and group activities that take place. All the characters in this story are well developed and I loved them all but that didn't mean There wasn't also moments I wanted to shake them. If you like paranormal even a little or maybe want to get your feet wet, or you like some suspense and actions of your just looking for a hot romance you've found it. Would definitely recommend.

I am an avid Cherise Sinclair fan.. I love her books.. but I am not a real fan of paranormal/shifter.. until NOW.. waiting for the next Sinclair book to come out, and having an amazon gift card burning a hole in my pocket.. I figured "oh why not" and I am so glad I did.. holy smokes.. Cherise drew me in from the very beginning and kept me there... the book is so well written..the characters - all of them - make you want to be there with them.. Alec, Calum and Vicki... their story is not only believable but grabs a hold of you and doesn't let go.. I am pretty sure I hit every emotion with the first book (and I immediately purchased the other 2) and I didn't want to finish only because I didn't want it to be over!
Forget any preconceived notions about shifter books - the world Cherise creates in this series is one you can believe in and one you want to be in!

Another great book by Ms. Sinclair! Absolutely loved it! This was a little bit different from other shifter books I have read before and I enjoyed the change. Cherise does a great job developing her story and her characters. The romance, suspense and action flowed so well throughout the book. So glad I read it!

Her Cougar Sunrise: Paranormal Dating Agency

Stupid shifters and their instalove!

Tessa Blackwood was pissed. She had a nice guy, good dates, a future… possibly. Then he ghosted her after leaving a voicemail breaking up with her. In a severely inebriated state (okay drunken), she might have called Gerri Wilder at the Paranormal Dating Agency and blamed her and all shifter kind for the loss of her boyfriend/potential husband.

The fates took hold of Tessa’s future along with some help from Gerri and sent her dashing across Texas to work for the weekend. She needed every penny to take care of her ailing mother.

Levi Nash didn’t see the point in hunting down a mate. It either happened or it didn’t. He hasn’t had much luck on his own due to the secret he keeps from most people.That didn’t stop his little sister from signing him up with the PDA. A single beer and a new waitress was all it took to change his destiny. Convincing Tessa that mates can happen in the blink of an eye was the only way to ensure both of them had a happy future.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Loved every bit! I absolutely love the way things worked out. I have enjoyed the PDA ever since I read the first book. Thanks for sharing this couple with us!
