Shelly Laurenston turns up the heat with two sizzling novellas.

In 'Christmas Pride':

How come all the good-looking ones are insane?
That's what runs through NYPD cop Desiree 'Dez' MacDermot's mind the minute she hooks up again with her childhood buddy, Mace Llewellyn. It isn't just the way he stares at her with those too-sexy gold eyes, as if he could devour her on the spot. Or the six-four, built-like-a-Navy-SEAL bod-o-death. It isn't even that he sniffs her neck and purrs, making her entire body tingle. It's more about that disconcerting, shifting-from-man-to-lion thing that unhinges her...and makes her want more.

Mace likes making Dez crazy. In fact, he likes her any way he can get her?in bed, on the desk, here, now, again. Together, they'd always been trouble, but Dez has no idea just how good trouble can feel.

In 'Shaw's Tail':

Brendon Shaw, hotel owner and lion shifter, has seen better days. He's been beaten, had a gun to the back of his head, and had to be rescued by a Pack of shape-shifting wolves. He didn't think he'd survive the night, much less find the woman of his dreams. And he never thought the woman of his dreams would have a Tennessee accent and wear cowboy boots. Once he sets his sights on her, the predator in him is ready to pounce and never let go.

Ronnie Lee Reed is ready to change her life, and New York City is the place where any girl, even one who runs with a Pack, can redefine herself. First order of business: find a mate, settle down, and stop using men for sex. Even big, gorgeous, lion-shifting, oh-my-what-big-um-paws-you-have men. Then again...

The Mane Event- Shelly Laurenston 1. Christmas Pride – Mace & Dez. This story was just ok. It started slow and remained slow for majority of the book but I did like the suspense of the back story. I felt like there was no chemistry between the two main characters. Their relationship felt kind of forced. I did love the banter between the pride and pack members. For the longest time I couldn’t remember if I had listened to this book before, I actually tried but I didn’t finish. This time, though I did finish, I was really disappointed. 2. Shaw’s Tail- Shaw & Ronnie. I don’t think this story was any better for me however it was a little funnier. I don’t like how the personality of Sissy Rae or whatever her name was totally changed with her role in this book. Whereas in Christmas Pride, she was this sweet little country bumpkin who only wanted to help and in this book she was very sneaky, conniving and couldn’t seem to make up her mind as to whether she was for or against Shaw and Ronnie. I didn’t like Ronnie at all. She was a basket case. It seemed like she was always trying to run and leave without dealing with her situations like an adult. There was also an overuse of the word “hoss” and it got annoying after a while. I couldn’t handle how many times it was used in this book. I think I’ll have to really think on whether to continue this series. As of right now, I’m not impressed by this author. Plus side though... the narrator's southern accent reminded me of anna paquin as sookie stackhouse of true blood and that literally tickled my fancy.

OMG!! The banter between the characters makes this series worth listening to in itself!!!!! The narrator does an amazing job giving distinctive voice to each character and with the banter between them makes this an awesome series.
