A son and a mate in one fell swoop—he'll never live this down.
Panther shifter Sasha Draven might be a Protector, but that doesn't mean he's in a hurry to get his ass kicked protecting clueless humans. This bad boy doesn't do commitment, but when he comes face to face with his past in the form of his son, every protective instinct he never knew he had kicks in. He will protect what's his at all costs.
Macey Laine thought she'd escaped the inner city violence threatening her nephew when she left Glasgow behind. The last thing she expects is to come face to face with her sister's past in her own home. There's no denying this bad boy biker is Kenny's father. If only she could deny the instant connection she feels to this stranger, as easily.
Nothing good will come of this, especially when the threat to Kenny tracks them down…

HER PANTHER PROTECTOR by Doris O'Connor is book 5 in the Protectors Series, but this reads as a standalone novel.
The story opens with the introduction to Sasha, a bad ass panther, who is also one of the protectors. In the space of a few pages, we find out everything we NEED to know about Sasha from his internal thoughts. Until he narrowly avoids getting into an accident on his bike when a panther cub scampers across the road in front of him. And not just any panther cub. His son. And from there, we are witness exactly to what it means for him to be a protector.
I really liked this story. Switching back and forth between points of view, I found Sasha's view point to be well done from his thought process to choice of language/speech. The various supporting characters and their interaction with Sasha was grand fun and I admit to laughing out loud to much of the good-natured jabs thrown about.
As I'm sure you gleaned from the title, this is a paranormal romance with a variety of shifters and a few vampires thrown in to boot. I enjoyed Macey's (human) interactions with everyone as she was rather abruptly thrown into their world. I thought her research into everything about them from who and what they were to their lifestyle (kinks) was brilliant. As were the different characters' quirks, which made them much more human even as they were thoroughly immersed in their alter (shifter) egos.
As an erotica romance with an emphasis on the paranormal along with a bit of kink (bdsm) thrown in, I found all the aspects of the story to be handled well by the author. And well, the sex scenes were downright scintillating.
The only negative thing I have to say is that it could have used a final line edit as there were some issues that disrupted the tone and pace of the story as I had to stop and go back to reread something. But overall, if you're looking for something steamy, you'll definitely want to start here.
