Cynthia: So I met a man.
Mom: Is he single?
Hitting on the wrong woman finds Daryl regaining consciousness in a motel taped to a chair. Things were looking up--and not just below the belt.
A sexy, cocoa-complexioned veterinarian--with killer curves--wants answers, and he's only too happy to give them to her, for a price, say a kiss, or something more, from those luscious lips. The problem is Cynthia isn't the type to fall for flirty words and panty-dropping smiles. She tempts Daryl into helping her. Teases him into acting. Claims his heart without even trying.
But that was okay because...She's mine...and someone was trying to hurt her.
Hell no.
This kitty isn't afraid to unleash his claws and rescue the woman he wants. An intriguing, hot woman, a mystery, and danger? Sounds like fun, and Daryl is ready to play. He'll do anything to claim Cynthia as his mate.

Panther’s Claim was a lot of fun, with a mystery, some hot moments and quite a bit of danger.

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Listening to Panther’s Claim was a treat! I loved the humor, and I also loved how out there Cynthia was in many ways. I mean, she kidnapped Daryl to figure out if he had kidnapped her friend… That is pretty out there, no? Their chemistry was off the charts, though, and I enjoyed how they both slowly came to realize they might be fated mates. The mystery that started in Croc’s Return continues here, and the disappearances of shifters seem very ominous and unnatural, as do the hybrid shifters who attack Cyn and Daryl.

There were a lot of interactions between the male characters in Panther’s Claim, as they worked together to figure out both why Daryl and Cyn were attacked more than once, and what happened to Cyn’s friend. The search for truth mixed with the romance between Cyn and Daryl were well done, and when parents were added to the mix, things went from campy to hilarious, especially because both of the mothers just want their child to get married. Like, right now!

Told in third person perspective, and with dialogues that the narrator managed to share really well, Panther’s Claim is a great instalment in Langlais’ Bitten Point series – and it left me wanting more so much I immediately one-clicked the next two books on audible. The only thing that didn’t work too well for me when it comes to the narrator was the way she did the ‘squeals’ Cynthia sometimes made.

Fave Quotes - (un)Conventional Bookviews

“I told you. I need answers from you.” “So instead of asking me”—he waved a hand around the room—“you came up with this brilliant plan.” He didn’t bother to hide his mocking. “I had to improvise.”

“I don’t suppose you molested me while I was all tied up?” That out-of-the-blue query had her mouth hanging open, and she blinked. “Are you for real?” “Totally. Want to touch me again and see?”

  1. I’m glad this was a nice addition to the series, Lex. I picked up Pirates in audio to review. I adore Langlais’ humor and her wacky characters. I’ll have to pick up this series at some point. I’ve not read a lot of her work but she hasn’t let me down yet. 😀 *BIG HUGS*

  2. I so love Eve’s humor. It is so much fun. I’m glad you’re enjoying this series. I love the quotes you picked. There are always many to choose from in an Eve Langlais book. 🙂

    I’m not a huge fan of this narrator. I didn’t like her in the beginning when I started listening to Kodiak Point. The more I listen the less I dislike her. She’s grown on me, but will probably never make my favorites list. But I do like her more now than when I started listening.

  3. That definitely sounds out there that she kidnaps someone to find out if he kidnapped someone. But it does sound like a original set-up. I keep hearing good things about this author her books, I’ll have to try one of her books once. I like it when series like these have a plot line that continues throughout the books, like the mystery here. It adds some continuity to the series, which is nice. Great review!

    This is an author I’ve wanted to try for a while. I may already have one of her books on my Kindle. My mind is so bad when it comes to books I’ve purchased years ago. Great review!
