Review & Giveaway - Collared for a Night by Susan Arden @romancebysusan

Collared for a Night
by Susan Arden

GenreErotic Paranormal


All it takes is one mistake to be marked. One bite, she crosses a line...into forever.

Diana Hambre's body is blazing. For days this leopardess shifter has spun through a body-searing heat cycle. Alone. Her senses reel when Shawn Barclay, her boss, walks into her reserved room at the Downtown Den, a stud club for shifters. He gives Diana a choice: spend the evening with him, give into his every desire, and she'll find out what it means to quench her heat-crazed thirst—or try her luck with a stranger, one of the club bangers.

Shawn hates when his back is against the wall. One sip of Diana’s pheromone-laced scent is enough to force his alpha hand. The tables have turned and it's Diana's back he wants up against a wall, or any other surface for that matter.

As the moon rises toward midnight, Shawn and Diana come to understand the difference between sex and bonding. For a night, neither of them resist their primal instincts, blindly giving into carnal desire. Her wild nature fights being subdued and she risks spontaneously shifting without warning.

Now, bearing Shawn's bite marks, she can’t simply walk away from him; not when he has the means to teach her to harness her leopardess nature. Shawn accepts the challenge of training Diana to control her untamed cravings. Employing every method available in and out of the bedroom, he discovers he's on the verge of ensnaring himself in the process.

Warning: Erotic scenes hot enough to peel paint.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!
** Received ebook as part of a blog tour for an honest review.

I love the cover especially the kitty with the big beautiful eyes :)

Ok first things first, a majority of this book is very steamy erotic scenes, so if that’s not your thing, then you may not want to read this book.  There is definitely a story to go with it, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  This is the first time I’ve read anything by Susan Arden, but after looking at the cover and the blurb I knew it was something I’d enjoy.  Her writing style makes it easy to visualize everything that is happening and be sucked into the characters’ lives.  Diana is trying to make her way in the world as a lone woman trying to control her leopardess half after personal tragedy.  She is a strong woman who does not like to admit she needs help, and she keeps people at arm’s length.  Shawn is a confident alpha who is a bachelor after being burned before with no plans for that changing ever.  Their story is awesome. 
Only thing that I wish there was more of was their families.  I almost wonder if there will be another book involving meeting both of their families & closure which would rock, and I would definitely read it.  However, I have seen no indication of this being a series.
I loved this book and highly recommend it to paranormal romance lovers who like it steamy and hot.
