"Feather Down" [Raptors Revealed Series, Book 1] by Lorie O'Clare
My Book Summary : Dover is an owl everyone goes to, to settle disputes among the species so they can (hopefully) keep the peace among them all. He was recently asked to fly to Banff so he could find out what the tension brewing between the species is all about and see if he can stop it. However, as soon as he pulls into town he finds himself getting distracted and a bit sidelined by Lana. She's an attractive female owl from a local and powerful nest that Dover cannot seem to get enough of, especially after their first meeting. Yet what will Dover do when he finds out that Lana has been keeping secrets from him so she can protect her nest (aka her family) that seems to be behind all of the tension in Banff to begin with...
My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, this is a novel about a man/owl shifter finding his mate and trying to prove to her that she is exactly the one he wants. It's a spicy and suspenseful novel that keeps you on your toes! I liked Lana & Dover together, their chemistry sparked off the page. Plus, I enjoyed finding out the dynamics going on in Lana's nest and in Banff.
The only thing I wished I liked more about this novel was how the plot played out, since it wasn't as straightforward as I would have liked. Not that I would have wanted to know how this novel was going to end right away, I just wish I could have liked what was going on around Banff and Lana's nest more so then what happened.
Overall, though, I recommended this novel to anyone who likes reading shifter romances, especially ones with unique breeds.
Book Teaser(s) :
His mouth opened wider, his fingers stroking her neck, encouraging her to take more of him. Lana greeted his deepening of the kiss with eagerness and her tongue moved with his, as if there were some sacred dance involved with kissing that she’d always known and forgotten until this moment. It was too much enduring the craving that grew inside her. At this rate he would make her come with a fucking kiss.For more information on this book, series, and/or any other books by Lorie, then please check out her website.
Focusing on the fact Heath would probably return soon, expecting her and her brothers to be here, helped ground her. Although even with that knowledge, tearing her mouth from his was harder to do than she thought. Not because he held her chin, keeping her where he wanted her, but because she didn’t want to end it.
Life sucked when she couldn’t have what she wanted. Lana forced her head to the side, taking on a bit of aggression of her own, and dragged in a deep breath. She inhaled the mixed aroma of their lust. It was intoxicating.
And the first thing anyone would smell when they walked through her door.
Lana pushed against Dover’s chest. An overwhelming sense of satisfaction washed over her when she searched his face as she shoved and saw how dazed he appeared. His need and cravings got the best of him too. Another time and with another male capturing so much emotion on his face would be a hardcore turn-off. And it disappeared as she studied him, his cool, collected expression once again in place.
She wouldn’t grin, wouldn’t embarrass either one of them. Knowing she controlled him more than originally she might have believed was good enough. ~ within Chapter 7
