Book 3, Royal Pride
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.

Forbidden love…Undeniable passion
“You’re tough on a man’s pride, baby.”
“I’m just telling the truth.” She drew a deep breath into her lungs, hoping to lessen the lust adding a husky edge to it. “Your kisses are nice.” Another inhale filled her lungs with Josh’s rich signature. Quivers danced along her inner walls. Her pent-up air escaped in a rush. “That’s it. Nice, not spectacular.”
He dropped to his knees. She tensed. With her skirt pushed up, he had a perfect view of her panties, blue to match his eyes. He didn’t peek or try to touch her intimately. He lifted her calf and kissed his way up to her knee, teasing the crease with quick flicks of his tongue before moving higher.
Her heart knocked hard against her ribcage. He couldn’t mean to kiss her…there. A fresh wave of arousal flowed. She inched her bottom closer.
He nipped her sensitive flesh. She barely stopped her answering moan from escaping.
“What are,” she dragged in a shaky breath, “you doing?”
“Trying to rebuild my self-esteem, kitten.” He raised his head. With his heated eyes on her, he reached up and caressed her inner thigh. “I can’t let you walk away from me unsatisfied. Now, can I?”
“You don’t have to…I mean, this isn’t…”
He brushed his knuckles against her dripping sex. Her rebuttal turned into a groan. He fisted her panties. A rough tug and the thong ripped, the sound of tearing cloth echoing in her ears along with her pounding pulse.
He shoved her skirt up. With the loose material pooled around her on the desk, he dropped his gaze to her sex.
The desire adding a low drawl to his voice fed hers. She squirmed. A hand on her thigh stopped her restless writhing. He trailed his fingers over her scorching skin, from her knee to her slickened cleft. She panted.
He spread her lower lips and blew warm air on her sensitive opening. Her head fell back on a moan. “This gorgeous sex is mine, Mira. You know it. I know it.”
What a book! Favorite Obsession kept this reader captivated from the very first page. Josh and Mira were wonderful characters -spellbound, I was intrigued and engrossed in their story.
Mira was a royal destined to mate and reproduce a new generation of special cubs. For Mira though, life had not been easy, neither as a woman, royal, or pride member. And if circumstances were not dire enough she fell in love with a human, Josh.
Josh, the epitome of alpha male, delivered strength and class as he traversed the line between the humans and shifters. His loving demeanor emanated through Ms. Corrigan's writing; creating a worthy character, regardless of the realm he walked.
Nancy Corrigan described a world where the character transformation and reality did not circumvent the realism of human-shifter relations. This world was realistic and held fast to any civilization.
The sexual build up throughout the story was just as hot and steamy as the sexual encounters themselves. Josh’s dominance over Mira soothed her loins, spirit and cats. Fates intervention left little doubt that Josh would rise to great things and was Mira’s true mate.
Ms. Corrigan kept the story of past characters alive as they interwove into the lives of Josh and Mira, accentuating their story and further catapulting the others.
A love worth fighting for, a conquering hero, and a sexy feline made Favorite Obsession a worthy read.
