I was actually re-reading this book yesterday while I waited for the UPS truck to come with Beast Behaving Badly, the most recent book in the series. It contains the first two stories in the Pride series: Christmas Pride and Shaw’s Tail.
I don’t even know how many times I have read these books, but everyone of them is hysterically funny. These are some of the books I pick up when I am tired of reading “serious” books. I consider them some of my comfort reads. If I want something I know I will enjoy, I can count on Shelly Laurenston.
In Christmas Pride, Desiree “Dez” McDermott is an New York cop investigating the death of a member of Mason “Mace” Llewellyn’s pride. Of course, she has no idea that Mace or the victim are actually lion shape changers. Unfortunately, Dez has always been a dog person. Some of the funniest scenes involve Mace and Dez’s two Rottweilers.
Because I have read this book so many times before, I am not going to re-read Shaw’s Tail again right now. I can tell you, however, it is about Brendon Shaw, another member of the pride, and Ronnie Lee Reed, a member of the Smith wolf pack from Tennessee.
Just as a heads up, you need to know the language is very rough and the sex is very explicit, in case that makes a difference to you.
