Lessons in Purrsuasion (Chicago Catastrophe #2) by Rory Dale & Anya Nowlan. ARC Review.

An ex-SEAL werelion just seeking peace + a feisty, curvy woman with something to prove + a pregnancy no one could have expected = Suspenseful shifter romance you can't miss!

Stone Calloway thought he left behind his life of violence once he hung up his sniper rifle and settled into an easy routine. But just like this werelion ex-SEAL doesn't know when to relax, the world doesn't know when to leave him be, either. Called in to help an old friend get back his sister, Stone begrudgingly steps back into the world of organized crime, shifters hunting shifters, and everything that comes with it. He would have never guessed that the right woman could make him see all of it differently...

Selina Rozack wanted nothing more than to run her business in peace, but the curvy woman never stood for injustice and that got her in trouble with the wrong people. Or, well... the wrong shifters! The Crimson Claws, a shifter mob organization, is after her, and they're not the only ones. Stuck between two men who both think of her as theirs, Selina has to fight tooth and nail to prove that she's her own woman. The fact that one of the men is impossibly sexy and completely irresistible doesn't help at all. With a surprise pregnancy thrown into the mix, things start looking grimmer by the day... But maybe that's exactly what she needed? A blessing in disguise.

Can Stone show Selina that he's not just another possessive shifter out to claim her, and can she see him as more than an assassin? Or will the Crimson Claws catch up with them both before they can make up their minds, robbing them of their futures and their baby...

Lessons in Purrsuasion is a full novel with a happy ever after ending and no cheating! It can and should be read as a standalone!

Selina Rozak is just a baker that works in the family bakery.  Unfortunately in this Chicago there is a shifter mob who are demanding money for protection from the businesses.  Her father has refused to pay.  That has put her in the sights of a particularly nasty tiger shifter who wants her for himself. 
Stone Calloway is an ex navy.   SEAL and a lion shifter . A friend has asked him to try and get his sister back from the men who kidnapped her.  That turns out to be just the start of their problems. 
This is an all action, romantic suspense with the added flavour of shifters.  There is a lot of danger,  bullets and fur flying,  but we still get time for the romance. 
This is part of a series but easily read on it's own.  I loved this very exciting book and can't wait to read the next one. 


Anya Nowlan loves growly bears, hot sex and writing about both. The sexier and naughtier the better. She mostly writes paranormal and fantasy novellas and novels, focusing on shifters and their lucky mates. Her stories are often bite-sized, just what you need to soothe that craving for brave women and strong alphas with a big side-order of some smuttiness.

Anya lives in Boston with her boyfriend and several dogs of varying sizes and levels of mischief. She can't go through a day without chocolate and has an unhealthy addiction to purses, but every girl is allowed her little vices, right?

Rory Dale has always loved big burly men and fairytales. Though life is sometimes tough, Rory likes to tuck herself away with a hot, raunchy book and life the life of fantasy and make the hardships taste that much sweeter. That’s what started her on the path to writing as well – the need to share her own little dreams with others! It just so happens that these dreams include plenty of hot men, heartwrenching conflicts and sizzling, pantymelting sex!

Rory lives in Colorado with a cat, a grouchy goldfish and a stack of books so high it’s sometimes hard to determine where the room ends and the books begin. There isn’t a handsome bear of a man in her life yet but until he shows up, she’s just going to write about her dream man until he steps in the door one day!
