Book 9 of Shifting Crossroads
Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance

Pansy is desperate. She is the only porcupine in a family of wolves, and her body is bound tightly to the local area with wild magic. All in all, she isn't prime dating material.

When her fae godmother sends her to the Crossroads and makes special arrangements for her, she wasn't sure what to expect, but a full-on Cinderella-style makeover wasn't it.

Arriving at the Crossroads is a problem, the wild magic in her system literally blew the roof off the Meditation Centre and that is only the beginning of Pansy's problems.

Axander headed to the Crossroads when he couldn't find the woman for him back at home, but travelling to the shifters' dating dimension, he finds that the woman he wanted was in front of him the whole time. She was just protected by scent-masking engine oil and an entire pack of wolves.

Porcupine and honey badger shifters, what is the paranormal romance world coming to? Can it get any more ridiculous with these oddball shifters? Not sure what to expect, this reader examined this book with an eye searching for ludicrous writing. Instead of silliness, the story completely captured my attention. Why haven't I read this series earlier? I just started reading this series at book 9? Obviously, I've been missing out.

Pansy is a porcupine shifter in a family of wolf shifters. The reason why she is completely different is quite a moving story. In a very short time, Ms Masters creates an easy to understand world of shifters, fae and the mating call. The characters are adorable. The story is smooth and tightly written. It can also be read as a standalone. Each of these books in the series can be read by itself and in any order. The only common thread is this "Crossroads" place where shifters getting serious about finding a mate will visit.

This story does include a little sex. What really makes this story is the idea of family bonds. What an entire family sacrifices in order to protect one of their own is very sweet.

Ms Master also includes her quirky sense of humor. I wish I could produce porcupine quills as easily as Pansy does. She uses those to her benefit in ways I find very interesting. This happily ever after romance is recommended to shifter lovers who are tired of the regular standby animals and want something different.
