Product Description

Review

"Warren's latest novel centers around the Tiguri family, a race of shapeshifting tigers. Readers will be immersed in a world of fantasy and the supernatural filled with otherworldly beings in constant conflict. Add to that a passionate romance mingled with an aura of mystery, and readers are left with one amazingly good story."--RT Book Reviews on On the Prowl

From the Back Cover

In the dangerously alluring world of the Others, New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren unleashes one woman’s wildest desire—to tame the man of her dreams…

Most girls would throw a fit if their parents tried to set up an arranged marriage for them. It’s so outrageously old-fashioned—even for a Tiguri family, members of a fierce race of shapeshifting weretigers. But Saskia isn’t getting her claws out just yet. She’ll go through with this marriage to help unite two powerful families—and because her husband-to-be Nicolas Preda is the sexiest, hunkiest, and only man she’s ever wanted…

ON THE PROWL

Of course, marrying an alpha male like Nic comes with its share of danger. As leader of his Streak and head of a global corporation, Nic and his new fiancée must take their places in the jungles of Manhattan—and the local Others seem to have a strict “no pets” policy. In fact, the Council seems to think the Tiguri are at the root of all their problems, including an attempt on the life of its leader. If Nic hopes to protect his name and his mate, it’s hunt or be hunted—and he can’t do it alone. But if anyone can bring out the beast in him, it’s the sexy, savage tigress he’s sworn to love…

On the Prowl April 25 2012
By A. Schreiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
On the Prowl is the first I've ever read of Christine Warren. I believe this is her thirteenth "Others" book but after doing some investigating and talking to people who are familiar with her books, this one is more of a stand alone. It introduces us to the world of The Tiguri, or tiger shifters. What initially drew me to this book is an arranged marriage. I love it when the hero and heroine are forced to marry early in a book. I can usually find this trope in historicals, but I was happy to see it in a paranormal romance.

Saskia and Nicolas come from traditional, old Tiguri families and it is very normal for the parents to arrange marriages to continue their clans. The tiger shifters have a low birth rate, and have grown somewhat sparse in recent years. Much depends on this marriage, not only for future children but the Tigers have decided to move into New York city, an area where other shifters have power. They are not necessarily welcome, although no one is outright hostile to them.

While Saskia and Nicholas knew each other when they were younger, they have not seen each other for many years. But they are thrown together after their engagement party. I really liked that these two aren't really opposed to the marriage. They understand their customs and what is at stake and are willing to give it a go. What Saskia underestimates is just how alpha her new fiancé is.

Nicholas is over the top, borderline ass, extremely protective male. And I just ate it all up. I seriously couldn't get enough of him. I'm sure he will turn some of you off. I mean - he really is an ass. And while Saskia definitely had her moments of giving it back to him, which made me cheer, she also understands her role of being the wife to this kind of male. She didn't let him walk all over her, but she didn't feel like she had to fight for complete independence either. Taking into consideration all of their traditions, their relationship made sense to me. Their engagement doesn't become an official marriage until she is pregnant. There is a lot of "the female belongs pregnant in the kitchen" kind of deal in this book. Again, probably not for everyone. But I found it to be a very fun book. A lot of times, their arguments end up naked in the bedroom, which for some reason I approved of.

Besides working out the kinks to their marriage, there is also an attack on the head of the shifter council, in which Nicholas gets framed for. This set-up was a little weak for me, but it did integrate well within the romance.

This book was a really fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon. If you like super alpha males, and lusty bedroom scenes, I think you will enjoy this one.

Sassy Tiguri May 3 2012
By Tina Wheatley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Oh how I love Christine Warren's books. In this installment she pulled all types of emotions out of me. The story centers around Nic and Saskia(Sassy) who are embarking on an arranged marriage. That along with Nic's chauvinistic attitude had my hackles raised. This is where Christine Warren's writing ability comes into play. She had me totally disliking Nic (because of his superior attitude) and Saskia (because of thought she was going to be a door mat). Well, mid way through the story I did a total 360. I fell in love with Nic and Saskia. Nic is definitely the epitome of Alpha male but Saskia is just as strong.

I usually walk away from Christine Warren's books feeling really good and ready to read another one. This time was no different.

On the Prowl
Reviewed by Francesca & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

Brought together by their power-seeking families, Saskia Arcos and Nicolas Preda are now married, but won't be considered fully mated until Saskia becomes pregnant with Nic's cub. As fierce members of the Tiguri - the incredible shapeshifting weretiger community - they are put under the spotlight because of their status in the community and Nic's place as CEO of one of the top corporations in Manhattan.

Saskia and Nicolas are an interesting couple, to say the least. Saskia is a woman who is used to having things taken care of for her. This makes her the perfect match for someone who enjoys control as much as Nicolas. I would say their dynamic is most similar to a Dom/sub relationship. Saskia shows signs of a submissive personality while Nicolas loves to give out orders and expects them to be followed through. Some would consider Nic to be a jerk, but for me, he didn't come off as too demanding. He is a man who knows what he wants and I thought that Saskia stood up to him well.

I was very impressed by Warren's writing style. I read this book in one sitting and I think that is a result of Warren's incredible ability to write so freely and pace her work evenly. Warren also does a fantastic job of giving readers a chance to understand both sides of a scene from the hero and heroine. She does this often and thoroughly and I think that's the number one reason why I enjoyed these characters so much. Nic can do or say something that is completely off-putting , but then readers get his POV of the scene and we understand how out of control he feels whenever he is around Saskia. He isn't perfect at all, but he acknowledges his mistakes when he does make them.

While I feel that the emphasis was placed more so on the romance, there is also a pleasant suspense side plot with a crime that is pointing all the blame to Nic. I don't think this aspect of the book was explored as much as I would have liked, however I did feel like it was resolved well.

For readers who liked a dominant alpha hero and enjoy reading smoking hot sex scenes, then this book will definitely be to your liking. As my first Christine Warren book that I have enjoyed, I can say that it won't be my last if more of the Others are like Nic. He is definitely delicious. Come on, go on and take a bite!

SLOW SLOW SLOW July 1 2012
By Navigator - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This novel is poorly written and not edited very well. The book plot is slow to get started and once it is done you really don't feel anything for the main character beyond "come on and get it over with" and that is really the bottom line to this storyline; you just want the novel over with so you can move on. From start to finish I couldn't wait till the end of the book so I could move on to something else. If you are bored then read this book, but it is not the type you just curl up with and have a good time, for it shall leave you wanting.

I like it, but not five star worthy June 18 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really liked the story of Kitty Sugarman in Walk on the Wild Side, one of the first Christine Warren books I read. I've never liked any of the other books in the Others series nearly as much as that one, but this one comes relatively close. I liked the unique Tiguri society, and how Warren tries to show that the tradionalists do have a right to cling to their traditons, though obviously (hint, hint), not at all costs. I liked that for once, the hero didn't want to do every single thing a person can do, like be involved in politics, have a family, AND run a million dollar corporation at the same time. He just wanted to run his corporation and have a family, no power plays need apply. Additionally, I loved the moment when he left the apartment and immediately realized what a colossal butthead he was being, and how he would feel if the situation were reversed. Nic is a strong hero, though I believe his heroine (sorry guys, she just wasn't as strong as I would've liked, her name didn't linger in my memory) could've been stronger.
