Uncaged Review: The Mercenary and the Shifters by CD Hersh

As seen in Issue 2 of Uncaged Book Reviews, link below.

The Mercenary and the Shifters
CD Hersh
Paranormal Romance

When mercenary soldier Michael Corritore answers a desperate call from an ex-military buddy, he finds himself in the middle of a double kidnapping, caught in an ancient war between two shape shifter factions, and ensnared between two female shape shifters after the same thing ... him.

Shape shifter Fiona Kayler will do anything to keep the shipping company her father left her, including getting in bed with the enemy. But when she believes the man trying to steal her company is involved with kidnapping her nephew, she must choose between family, fortune, and love. The problem is ... she wants all three.

Uncaged Review: The shifter/paranormal part of this story is very unique, and more of a background characteristic than most shifter novels. Starting this series at this book, being the fourth book into the series, may have put me at a slight disadvantage, as it really took me awhile to understand what the shifter Society was and how everything worked. 

Fiona owns a shipping company on a port near Cleveland that was part of her family, and now her responsibility since her parents were dead. The rogue shifter ruled company of OmniWorld, is buying up and forcing many smaller companies out of business. Now they want Fiona’s, and her childhood friend, Kyle’s company also. So to clear her name and company of charges and to try and get OmniWorld off her back, she agrees to set up and spy on the Kyle’s company, but with Kyle’s help, her plan is to double cross them and take them down herself. In the meantime, someone is out to kill her, and she ends up hiring a security team to bodyguard her and to secure her home and office. What she didn’t plan on was Mike. Mike knows of shifters, as one of his good friend’s is one, but he doesn’t approve. And he doesn’t know Fiona is one either, at least not at first. Fiona finds herself in over her head, and will need to rely on her brother and the rest of the shifter family.

This book has a lot of suspense, action and romance, and some fun witty moments as well. There is nothing too gory and the one sex scene is not over the top. I like how the romance between Fiona and Mike brewed slowly. At the end, you knew there was room for more of this story to continue, but it did not leave on a cliffhanger and tied up the storyline that went on in this one nicely. Reviewed by Cyrene
