This was a short quick read that I liked and this was the first time that I have read a paranormal read written by Ms Banks Aliyah Carter is being hunted by poachers, hunters that are a part of a smuggling ring that brings African predators to the mountains of Colorado and releasing them to be slaughtered Snatched in her cheetah form six months ago, Aliyah is racing for her life when an arrow pierces her leg She manages to evade the poachers but is found by Duncan Kennedy, local sheriff, who is quite surprised to find a cheetah in his mountains, let alone a wounded one When one of the poachers sneaks up on Duncan while he s trying to aid the wounded feline, he s rescued by the surprising actions of the cheetah, and manages to get the large cat back to his cabin But the surprises are just beginning when he leaves her in his mudroom arrow still sticking out of her leg turns into a gorgeous female with an arrow sticking out of her thigh The world as Duncan knew it has changed forever, and Aliyah, feline to female and gorgeous with it, claws her way into Duncan s heart, then his bed But the threat to her life and the threat to Duncan s mountain tear them apart forever This was a really good book that I didn t want to end This book was well written like all of Ms Banks books with no errors in spelling or grammar this was a new series for me and I am looking forward to reading the next book. Golden Eyes is Maya Banks 0.5 book in the Amber Eyes series This short book was wonderful It brought back memories of my early teens where I bottle fed an infant puma cub whose mom was killed by a bear in Colorado of all places We gave it to the zoo when she went over 200 So I immediately fell in love with Aliyah and her sister who I m looking forward to reading in book 1.I m delighted to read one of my favorite authors writing about lycanthropic characters Duncan and Aliyah are evading and trying to bring to justice smugglers providing stolen wild game for poachers.This story was action packed surrounded byvolcanically steamyromance scenes and intrigue.Adults who love flammable romantic scenes should certainly like this fast read. I had hoped to get into the paranormal world again Agar taking a break Bad idea to read anything from this author The plot fell apart right away and all they did was have sex How boring There was no plot 2.5 stars Well, it s not so bad Aliyah is a shifter and she can shift to cheetah Bunch of hunters hunted her and Duncan the sheriff saved her But apparently Aliyah couldn t save her heart from him So did Duncan A simple shifter s story The storyline s very common and predictable But again, it s very Maya Banks y so if you re a fan, like me, you ll not disappointed But one thing I didn t like, that Aliyah s attraction is based on physical only Right I mean, I know she s in love with him eventually but still Didn t quite comfortable imagining it But overall so far so good. when sheriff duncan kennedy gets calls from folks in his small colorado town saying they have seen exotic animals he doesn t give the claims much thought after getting a call saying that gunshots were heard he goes to check it out he ends up finding a wounded cheetah and some hostile hunters of course the cheetah is a lot than she seems there was enough story to keep this book from falling into the all sexcapades all the time territory, and it was even a good one always a bonus with banks you always can count on the sex scenes being plenty steamy, and this was no let down. I love Maya but I have to say this wasn t my favorite I still liked it ok and will read Amber Eyes which is next I can t really say why I wasn t crazy about it It just didn t grab me like some others. terrible terrible and the dull droning of the voice actress they hired made it worst.
