Meet the family? Try surviving the family.
Since that fateful airline flight where Ivory met her mate, she has struggled to control her ice powers. But on her wedding day, she has it all: an adoring panther-shifter husband, a pack of superhero friends, and a level of happiness she never imagined was possible.
Until she meets her mother-in-law.
Instead of waking up from a blissful wedding night at Panther's side, Ivory wakes from a drug-induced haze, alone in the middle of a strange jungle. Mommy dearest has dropped her in South America, forcing Ivory into a twisted test of her worth. If she doesn't measure up to the tribe's standards, the marriage won't be acknowledged.
Although Ivory loves a fight, she's not into war games. Especially when victory might entail killing her new brother-in-law in an honor duel. But with her future on the line, holding back isn't an option.
Ivory and Panther’s big day is filled with humor, adventure and plenty of smexiness…everything I expected from the Manhattan Ten!
JUNGLECAT HONEYMOON explores the ongoing romance of Ivory and Panther from second installment in the series, IVORY. After finding each other they’ve decided to tie the knot and make things official but in true Manhattan Ten form, things don’t go smoothly. Soon after the nuptials Ivory is formally introduced to her mother-in-law (aka monster-in-law) who takes advantage the happy bride, drugging and whisking her away to the jungles of South America where she is meant to prove her worthiness to the rest of the panther family. These days Ivory is more a lover than a fighter but when it comes to her man Pan, she’s willing to face anyone, even family.
I can’t get enough of the Manhattan Ten and really love that Ms. Dodge gives us a look into Ivory and Pan’s big day in JUNGLECAT HONEYMOON. I always enjoy the strong women in these books and Ivory is one tough cookie, she stuck to her guns and definitely proved herself worthy. It was great to briefly revisit the rest of the superheroes and meet some new intriguing characters. Pan’s sexy brother Quan can definitely give him a run for his money, that’s all I have to say!
This short story is filled with the same action, humor and romance of Lola’s full length installments and while the pace is fast, it doesn’t feel rushed. Even amidst all the chaos and adventure we get a little smexy time for Ivory and Pan (which is always appreciated), I mean what’s a honeymoon without some nookie, right?! Fans of the books will surely be delighted by this addition to the series. Thank you Lola for giving us this short but entertaining superhero HEA! <3 This story can be read as a stand-alone, but I highly recommend readers to read them in order…trust me you won’t want to miss any of these sexy superheroes! 😉
