Unexpected Find: Royal Pride #1 by Nancy Corrigan

Book Review:

The first in a paranormal romance story from Nancy Corrigan, we are highlighting the first two books in the series.  You can find the series list for the books on Goodreads.

A beautiful and sweet shifter-human love story, Unexpected Find has powerful and entertaining characters, with a remarkably romantic and dashing main male character. I particularly like the balance of contrasts in Rafe’s personality: the animalistic wildcat and gentle lover. Jazz’s protectiveness of her adopted cubs inspires and brings out innate motherly and fatherly instincts within the readers. No overcrowding of side characters was noted in the novel; each character was given ample time to be introduced and portrayed properly. Its well-planned plot pans out smoothly then rises sharply on the climax, and ends in a gentle and smooth denouement. With engaging narration and steamy sexy scenes, this novel sets the stage for the Royal Pride Series, and gives it a good start.

I have to say that this was certainly an unexpected find, one of the best shifter books I have read in a while and I read a lot. The shifter world is concurrent with the normal world but detailed within itself, Nancy obviously knows exactly who, what, when and where everything is in the world so everything is consistent, but it’s also different, I love the idea of some of the shifters having more than one cat within them and the mating bond.
Jazz is a wonderfully strong and independent woman who has devoted her life to her adopted sons, who also happen to be shifters but in the world she lives in they have to be protected and she has done this ever since they were given to her but now there’s a new cat on the block and he isn’t taking no for an answer.
Rafe is Royal shifter and missed out on being alpha by two seconds, something he is eternally grateful for, as a royal shifter he has three cats in him and they have all chosen their mate, now all he has to do is get her on board with the whole idea, as well as trying to protect her and her boys.
The secondary characters are wonderful too, Kade, and Devin, and the other shifters, Josh who’s just inherited a daughter Megan, and of course Mr Wilkins next door.
Come into a new world and you will be entranced from the first moment, and held captive to the very last in this sexy and sensual shifter story, I cannot wait to read more books in this series and find out about the lives of those who quickly became friends. And I always love a happy ending “She hugged him tight and let happiness surround her. She’d finally found her prince charming and a love to last a lifetime. And it was one she’d never lose.”

Since the murder of her best friend, Jazz is stuck in a safe but lonely way of life. She’s willing to sacrifice everything to keep herself and her family safe from the shifter world. The sexy stranger who struts into her friend’s bar changes all that. From the first glance Jazz knows she’s sunk—their chemistry sizzles from across the room, it’ll be undeniable up close.

Jazz is the most beautiful female Rafe has ever seen and he wants her from the second he sets eyes on her. The depth of the need that swamps him every time he’s near her surprises him. It takes every last ounce of his self control not to pounce on Jazz and make her his. Only her distrust of his shifter nature holds him back. He counts it as a win every time his beloved human gives in to their passion and takes him to her bed. But Rafe’s patience isn’t infinite and he’ll do whatever it takes, face any danger—past or present—to ensure that Jazz becomes his. Forever.

About Nancy Corrigan

I've always been an avid reader and encourage everyone to escape the hectic daily grind with a few minutes a day in your favorite book.

I'm lucky enough to share my cat's home with my three wonderful children, husband, dog and snake. When not writing, I work as a chemist in a pharmaceutical lab.

My passions beyond reading and family include music, classic cars, tattoos and animals (all of which have found their way into my writing in one form or another).

So that's a little bit about me...
