When Meisha comes home and finds a strange man in her kitchen, she does what any sensible person would do. She beats the crap out of him first, then asks questions after. When he explains her best friend is in mortal danger, Meisha knows the whole mess—including a recent murder and the threats on her friend’s life—may be her fault, and she’s determined to get to the bottom of it. And no sexy stranger is going to stop her.
Lajos Farkas isn’t expecting to meet a spitfire, martial artist when he’s on a mission to figure out who’s stealing from Dark Wolf Enterprises, and he certainly doesn’t expect her to insist on butting in on his investigation. But getting rid of Meisha is seemingly impossible, and when his wolf decides she’s his life-mate, suddenly he realizes he’ll do anything to keep her close and grow old with her.
If they can just stay alive long enough to make that possible.
We are treated to embezzlement and murder. Action and adventure.
The story gives a little recap of what took place at the beginning of Shifter Claimed; before the brothers split up. Lajos, ends up having Meisha, Trudy’s best friend tag a long. She doesn’t need a man to save her and he’s never run across a women, like Meisha, one that makes his Wolf stir.
Lajos and Meisha both have dominant personalities and are both strong willed. I liked that Meisha can kick butt and is dedicated to protecting her family, which includes Trudy. Lajos is the same way. He will protect his family and pack. These two where good together. I liked the banter and how Meisha kicked Lajos butt in one scene. Oh my, what fun!
I enjoyed that we don’t have the instant imprinting that we got in book one. Here these two spend more time together and it’s not until around 60% in that they fall in bed and the imprinting happens.
Lover Claimed was a wonderful read. It’s fun, feisty, and entertaining. Giving us a little intrigue, humor, and sizzle.
Rated: 4 Stars

Lover Claimed ExcerptSince the man lying on her kitchen floor had been so brazen about his break-in, it meant only one thing. All her threats to the people in her apartment complex were starting to fall on deaf ears. She needed to take this punk out into the courtyard and give the neighbors a reminder as to why they should leave her and her stuff alone.
She squinted at her captive. He was big, too big for her to drag out the door, down the stairs and into the courtyard.
Piper went back up to his face and swung a leg that looked as if it couldn’t support her fat body over the intruder’s neck, straddling him, trying to hump him to death. “Make sure you keep that up. When I get him out in public you can embarrass him all you want.”
Her burglar frowned and groaned. “Pft. Get off me, dog.” He tried to move his arms. Meisha smiled. She had tied them behind his back. His eyes flew open in panic.
Meisha pushed Piper aside just in case she needed to knock him out again. As soon as Piper was out of his way, the intruder landed his eyes on her.
She was right. His eyes were pretty. Light brown with a hint of gold speckles.
He squinted, his glare focused on her. “Untie me,” he ground out.
Meisha glared at him. “No.”
The color of his eyes flashed from brown to green.
She leaned closer to get a better look. “Holy shit, how did you change the color of your eyes? Is that some kind of trick?”
“I don’t want to hurt you,” he warned, ignoring her question.
Meisha raised an eyebrow and chuckled. “Really? You? Hurt me?” There was no way he was getting out of the bindings. When she’d first moved to the US from Japan, her mother had told her that she wanted her only daughter to experience a normal American childhood like she had. That meant enrolling Meisha into the Girl Scouts. Thanks to that organization, she’d learned to tie a wicked knot.
The intruder grunted. His face turned red as he tugged at his bindings.
Meisha nodded at his arms. “If you haven’t noticed, you’re all tied up. I could do whatever my little heart desires to you.”
The side of his mouth quirked up. “And tell me, love. What does your heart desire?” His voice had dropped an octave.
She caught her breath. The dimple in his cheek was…cute. Her heart fluttered. She scooted away from him. That was what she needed—distance.
