Hostage to Pleasure (Psy-Changeling Book 5) by Nalini Singh
Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy--cool, calm, least on the surface. Inside, she's fighting a desperate battle to save her son and escape the vicious cold of the PsyNet. Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety, but to the lethal danger of a sniper's embrace.

DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard's rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian's agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules...

Awesome book. The storyline was well thought out. The characters were believable and perfect for the book. I ave always admired Dorian for going so far without being able to shift. It was inevitable that he end up mated to a Psy, his greatest enemy in his mind. Ashaya was such a strong character, she was great to watch as she stayed loyal to her family and tried to keep everything safe. I loved this book. If you have not read this series you are totally missing out run out and buy Slave to Sensation and start reading.

Running Wild by Sarah McCarty
Donovan must bring the Pack Alpha home and nothing more. But when he catches the sexy scent of Lisa Delaney, he’s hers, body and soul—and ready to risk both on an erotic desire that will shatter all boundaries.
Kelon intends to return to his pack after helping Donovan, but he never counted on the voluptuous distraction of Robin Delaney. She’s the one woman who can make him contemplate a choice no werewolf should have to make.

Wyatt can’t afford to be attracted to the practical, completely human Heather Delaney. But she isn’t a woman a man ignores—no matter what the cost.

I read this book months ago and just realized that I never posted about it. This book is three connected short stories. Or maybe you could say that it is one story but the point of view changes twice and you see three couples getting together one after the other. Three Packmates falling for three sisters. Very HOT. If you like short shifter stories then you will love this one. Especially if you like strong heroines. The opening scene is Lisa Delany kicking the crap out of a jerk using a pool stick because he hurt her sister.

I've only read "Slave to Sensation". I'm going to have to get on the ball and read the rest.

I want Running Wild!! I keep forgetting to look for it when I go out. Grrr.

I thought Hostage too pleasure was just okay. I think the problem is that I had too much of a high expectation for it.
