The Panther’s Lost Princess by McKenna Dean

 

The Panther’s Lost Princess

Description:
Ellie West has always known there was more to her story than being abandoned at birth. A child of the foster-care system, she didn’t get many breaks, but the one thing she can do is sing. It’s her only ticket out of poverty and obscurity. Nothing else matters, not even the nagging sense that she’s different. She’s headed for great things. She only needs a chance.

Jack Ferris couldn’t agree more. His firm, the elite paranormal agency Redclaw Security, has been hired to find a missing princess and return her to her family. Discovering that Ellie, a waitress in a hole-in-the-wall diner, is both the princess and his fated mate is like being hit with a sledgehammer. Ellie West can’t be his mate. She’s the mission.

The sooner Jack completes this job, the better, only Ellie has no intention of throwing her dreams away for a kingdom she’s never known. With hired assassins on their trail, Ellie might not have a choice. They must do whatever it takes to stay alive.


Review:

The Panther’s Lost Princess by McKenna Dean is the 1st book in her new Redclaw Security series.  

Ellie is a waitress with a dream, she wants out of the small town she lives in, she dreams of being a singer, so when a chance to audition, Ellie grabs it with both hands. 
She knows she can sing, but Ellie lacks belief and confidence in herself.  Ellie thinks she’s a monster ……

Her parents abandoned her at birth, and the foster families never seemed to want her for long, there has to be something wrong with her ….. right?  And on the night it all comes crashing down around her, she notices things ….. things that a “normal” person shouldn’t be able to do. 

Jack is employed by Redclaw security (a firm specializing in shifter business),  from bodyguards to surveillance.  He’s suppose to find a “princess” retrieve her and bring her back into the arms of her “real” family. 

But what jack doesn’t bank on is finding his “mate”, yup you got it …… the princess, except she’s not what he was expecting, he assumed she would be tall, blond and a complete bitch …… “Ellie” is the exact opposite, and all his animal side wants to do, is bite, mate and carry her off to safety. But he knows that the princess would never look at a lowly bodyguard, she deserves better, and so he is determined to get her to safety and the live he thinks she deserves. 

The story moves along at a nice pace, finding out about the characters along the way. 
The secondary characters were great to read as well, I’m hoping they get stories too. 
There is a nice balance of action (and not all between the sheets) and romance, nothing worse than skimming pages due to bedroom gymnastics (that last for pages, and pages, and pages)

Why was Ellie abandoned by her parents ? Who wants to kill her? (There are several attempts) and if she isn’t a monster, then what is she? Will Jack get his wish? You will need to read this book to find out. 

It’s a fun read that can be done in an afternoon.

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
