Middlemarch Mates #9
by: Shelley Munro
Released: July 2010
Ambar Patel has always wanted her freedom to do whatever she wants with her life so her relationship with Jake is perfect he is perfectly content with the way things are no push for commitment. They are soon to discover that their lives are about to change.
Hari Daya arrives with the sole purpose of mating with Ambar. Regardless he has never met her but like other female tiger shifters she should jump for joy at being his mate. What he was not expecting was getting the door slammed in his face and that his soon to be mate already has a lover in her life, a lover that he finds himself drawn to as well.
Jake Quinn who has no knowledge of the shifters in his own town including his lover Ambar needs money so when Hari comes into town he offers to rent him a room at his place. What Jake is unaware of is that Hari is there for Ambar. Even more confusing to him is the attraction he feels towards Hari? He has never been drawn to a man before why now?
As they all try to figure out what they are feeling towards the others as well as the battle Ambar is having with herself to not mate with either one of the men even though the overwhelming need to bite and mark both men is strong she is determined to keep her plans to travel and retain her independence.
As soon as I started reading TIGER BY THE TAIL I knew I would not be able to put it down. I was hooked from the first page. The chemistry between Ambar, Jake and Hari is intense and somewhat humorous. Ambar is so strong and set in her ways that it takes a lot of work for Hari to convince her that what she really wants is a mate. One of the nice things about this series is that Shelley Munro has made sure you can read book nine and not even realize you are reading part of a series. You will meet some of the characters from previous books as well as future ones I am sure but they are defiantly stand alone books but if you are like me you will want to go back and read all the others.
