Favorite Obsession by Nancy Corrigan: Exclusive Excerpt & Review

Favorite Obsession

(Royal Pride, Book 3)

by Nancy Corrigan

Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.

One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.

A Romantica® Paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Forbidden love…Undeniable passion.
Book Trailer
Exclusive Excerpt
Josh Conway leaned against the bar’s counter and watched the object of his obsession fight with her newly mated twin. Mira and Devin had been at each other’s throats for the past week. Josh had no idea why. The shifters didn’t share all their secrets with him, only the stuff that concerned his niece Megan. Even then, the scope of details bordered on the bare minimum.

He forced himself to look away when they started another one of their intense staring contests. They’d hold each other’s unblinking gazes until someone intervened. Josh refused to be that person today. He’d had enough of their asinine politics and playing by their narrow-minded rules. It was about time he made some of his own. First, he needed to know what had all the shifters snapping at each other.

A slow inspection of his bar showed his ex-girlfriend and her shifter mate in the middle of the dance floor, wrapped in each other’s arms. Going by the drowsy expression on her face, they’d soon find somewhere private to give in to their desire.

Josh watched them grind in a suggestive dance that bordered on being inappropriate in public and felt nothing. Not a twinge of jealousy. Hard to believe he’d been adamant about getting back together with her a couple months ago. Of course that was before he’d met Mira. One look into her exotic feline eyes and his life had done a one-eighty.

His gaze drifted back to her. He couldn’t help it. She acted like a magnet, always pulling his attention back to her.

People talked about love at first sight all the time. He’d always thought it a bullshit excuse to get a woman naked. Yeah, not anymore. Maybe love was the wrong word for what he felt for Mira. Obsession. Stark need. Unquenchable lust. Those fit his focused attentions better. Didn’t matter what label he slapped on it. She was the girl his dad had warned him about—the one woman who’d grab him by the balls and not let him go. No truer words had been said. Mira owned him.

My Review
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series gets better with every addition!

When years of tradition, and a prophecy with unspeakable ramifications, conspire to take over Mira's life, she refuses to become a victim of fate and fights back. Used to depending on no one but herself, she's unwilling to sucumb to the attraction that draw her towards Josh, a handsome human who can never be her mate; but not even Mira can fight the fires of forbidden passion she feels for Josh forever.

Josh doesn't understand the shifter world, and could care less about the prophecy that has shaped Mira's life. All he knows is that she is the only woman for him; if that means he has to fight centuries of tradition and every shifter that tries to stand his way, so be it. The battle for ultimate possession of Mira's body and soul is one he refuses to lose.

A fast paced and action packed paranormal romance; Favorite Obsession can be read as a stand alone story, but also contains returning characters from the Royal Pride series. Nancy Corrigan is one of my favorite authors of feline shifters; she has a gift for developing complex storylines and blends passion with emotional depth in a way that captures my imagination and leaves me begging for her next book with a "Here, kitty kitty!" and a smile.
