  Rebecca Desjardin, a P.I. and cat shifter, doesn't normally find herself in strip clubs. But a popular male dancer has been murdered in Pennsylvania, and it looks like the work of a shifter from the local Pride. Rebecca has a duty to help protect her kind—and she needs to find justice for the dead.
  Her impromptu trip leaves her boyfriend, reporter Brandon Hanover, unhappy. He's only just come to terms with the fact that she's a Felis, and their relationship is still so new… Rebecca is determined to deal with the murder first, then deal with their future.
  As her investigation unfolds, she's met with grudging cooperation and half-truths. Does the Pride want her to find justice, or help them hide a killer? Frustrated and unable to shake the sexy local shifter who says he's on her side, Rebecca can't seem to scratch out the truth—at least not on her own. But when Brandon shows up, is he there to help or to mark his territory?
  Claws Bared was a really good read, that kept me guessing till the end.  I loved the romance between Rebecca and Brandon, especially after he meets up with her to lend a hand in her investigation. The pacing was good and I really enjoyed the ending.
  My only real problem with the book is mostly my fault, since I haven't read the first book. With Rebecca going on the case at the very beginning I didn't feel very attached to Brandon throughout the first part of the book, and if I'd read the first book I think I would have felt differently about him. By the end it didn't matter too much because I grew to love him. I'd recommend reading the first book, Blood of the Pride, first, to get the full effect.
  Overall really good read. Loved the mystery and figuring out who the murderer was, the author did an excellent job of keeping me wondering. I'd love to go back and read the first book because I feel like I've missed out on another good story! I'd recommend it, especially if you like a good mystery and enjoy a good shifter PNR.
