Erotic Romance, Ménage or more, Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
On the world of Merab, women rule, while men wield the magic. But what once was an equal exchange of power has been corrupted, as many of Merab's women succumb to the lure of dictatorship and their men rebel -- violently.
Nuriel, Crown Princess of Zirah, knows this firsthand. Kidnapped and tortured by the rebels, it was only with the love and protection of Wolf Lord Ze'ev, her First Consort, that Nuriel began to live again. Now the time has come for her to take her Second Consort, a Lord from the Feline Lands.
Ze'ev gave her protection; Cougar Lord Kefir offers her joy, something Nuriel hasn't felt in far too long. The Consorts' newfound happiness is threatened, though, by the increasing violence of the Rebellion. Can Nuriel find the strength to face her fears before it's too late for the Feline Lands -- and all of Zirah?

Wouldn't it be awesome to have four men as your consorts? They would love you and treat you to unbelievable hot sex. They would even protect you against threats. In NURIEL'S COUGAR, which is the second in the series, Nuriel is seeking the second of four husbands. For her, four husbands are too much but necessary to unite the four lands.
Princess Nuriel enters the Feline lands with her first husband Ze'ev. After her recent kidnapping and torture, her entourage is on edge. In the Feline lands, everything runs smoothly and perfectly. Even finding the right second consort, Kefir, seems too perfect. Felines pride themselves in perfection due to their breeding program.
This short story while smexy with the three main characters' bedroom antics of Nuriel, Ze'ev and Kefir, actually contains a darker theme. I'm not sure if the author duo, Violet Summers, meant to present the ideal of breeding perfection as a social commentary or not. For me, it was a nasty insidious program, not unlike the breeding of the Aryan race. This added a layer of plot for me in the short story. The world building was also slim; I felt confused at times. I believe this is intentional as the following books would reveal another puzzle piece until the entire world is complete at the end of the series.
Overall, the characters were likeable and even the villains were understandable. The erotic parts of the story were tastefully done. I recommend this story to people who enjoy shifter romance with intrigue and ménages.
