Forbidden is in the eye of the beholder.
As a human living among shifters, Josh Conway is expected to abide by Pride law. But he’s never been very good at following rules. He’d rather make his own. The habit has gotten him in trouble over the years, but it’s all about the endgame. And this time he knows exactly what he wants—the gorgeous feline shifter who’s off-limits.
Mira is his. He knew it the moment he looked into her eyes. Of course, convincing her of the truth involves overcoming a prophecy, her protective family, and the little issue of them being different species. No big deal. He’ll figure out a way to make it work. His mind is made up. He’s not letting his woman go. Ever.
4 out of 5 (very good)
Book 3 in the Royal Pride series concentrates on Josh and Mira. Mira has had it tough ever since she was born, and the one man that she wants to be with is the one man she can't have as he is human.
Josh knows that Mira is his, he just doesn't know how to convince Kade, Devin and the rest of this. The shifter world is very unfair as far as being a female shifter goes, so Mira has been told in no uncertain terms that she is not allowed to claim Josh as her mate, as she will kill him. Even knowing this, the pull between these two is so great that neither of them can withstand it.
Something happens early on in the book to Josh which has results that he doesn't expect and has no idea how to deal with, so he stumbles around in the dark, and doesn't think to tell anyone about it until three-quarters through.
I think this may be the best book so far, as I know the world well enough now to understand how things can go. I love how previous Mates make an appearance - it really is very 'pride-like'. You don't just get your HEA and disappear, never to be mentioned again.
With lots going on, and my emotions for Mira being torn with nearly every scene she is in, I was completely engrossed from beginning to end. With a strong emotional pull, and plenty of action to keep your interest, this book is a wonderful addition to the Royal Pride series. I can't wait to read Gwen's story! Definitely recommended.
* I received this book from Once Upon An Alpha in return for a fair and honest review. *

A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.
She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.
