[Menage Amour: Erotic Paranormal Menage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, shape-shifters, HEA]

After the devastating loss of her father, Katherine Douglas picks up her entire life and moves to the wilds of Montana. She sets about making a home only to find the unexpected-three larger-than-life men that send her perfectly planned future into a dizzying tailspin.

In the middle of a sting, Treasach "Scythe" Campbell, Quinlan "Mac" McAllister, and Sullivan "Sully" McAllister, Alpha Team for the Paranormal Protection Unit, were more worried about getting out in one piece than what the future might hold. But then in she walked-their mate. Like a punch to the gut, instincts older than time kick in, and the three men know nothing but the driving need to be with her. They're not human, not by a long shot, but they will love her with a fierceness no other could.

Will she run from what they are and what they are asking her for, or can they convince her to heed the primal call from within?

Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

I love the paranormal genre, with a specific addiction to those sexy shifters. Is it any wonder I snatch up every shifter story I can get my greedy hands on? So it was with gleeful abandon that I grabbed this one. But this aint your ordinary shifter story. It's something even better, as I so happily discovered.

The action starts with wolf shifter, Trey, and his bear shifter buddies, Mac and Sully, lurking in a dive bar waiting on some lowlife to cuff. The guys are part of a private security team. A paranormal unit. Then their mate walks through the door. The guys scent her the minute she walks through the door.

Katherine Douglas is grieving from the death of her beloved father. The wealthy heiress relocated to Montana to carry out a personal mission. And to get away from her greedy snake in the grass stepbrother. Fate was on her side when she walked into the bar looking for her fix of mint-pistachio ice cream. She ended up getting three hunky alpha shifters that just loved protecting and serving her.

I meant it when I said this wasn't an ordinary shifter romance. It's an extraordinary one. The story took so many twists and turns I kept wondering what would happen next. So many secrets are revealed that I won't even try to give any hints. Trust me when I say this one is loaded with exciting secrets. They're not all bad ones either; most of them are good secrets. The story was wildly romantic and it flowed well. The characters were strong, with only a few minor irritants. I liked how strong Katherine was and how well she adapted to her mates once they told her the truth. She didn't freak out at all, like some weaker heroines I've read. I really can't stand those chicks. We all should be so lucky to get us a hunky shifter dude. I wouldn't freak out at all. Not one little bit. Just saying. But she did get on my nerves with all her bitching about the men cursing. Then after one of those pesky secrets came out, I thought okay, so I see now. The three heroes are shifters so it goes without saying they aren't just hot....these guys were smokin'.

I did think that the writer could have fleshed out some of the characters a bit more. I realize that she was setting up a series however, so she had a lot of ground to cover. I just thought that poor Mac got a little short changed. That's it. Those minor details didn't lessen my enjoyment one bit. In fact, I could not put this one down. Things kept happening and I couldn't tear myself away. Even the secondary characters were fascinating. The guys are part of a paranormal team so that means more hot heroes will be had. Grin.

So here's the bottom line: I loved this story and I think you'll find it as exciting as I did. I'm giving THEIR UNEXPECTED MATE 4 stars.
