kitten-curvesCan the mating instinct kindle shifter romance between an alpha male bear shifter in search of a mate and a sassy BBW lion shifter, looking for a fling?

Gareth wants to mate for life, in fact he needs to find his perfect mate soon, or he’ll lose his position as the alpha of his troop of bear shifters.

Sassy and curvy, Rachel doesn’t want anything serious, just a little passion. She wants to use Shifter Date, the paranormal dating app, to find a one night stand. Broken hearted and in a dry spell, she’s hunting for an alpha male to be her ultimate fantasy—the best hook up she’s ever had… but nothing more.

Gareth goes wild when he sees Rachel on Shifter Date. Rachel’s sassy lion eyes, her curves for miles, and her loving heart kindles his mating instinct. But can he and Rachel mate for life? Or will her past keep her from her fated mate?

This is a BBW paranormal romance ebook, featuring a fiesty lion and a protective bear. It’s full of super hot shapeshifters, plenty of heart, lots of sexy sex and some laughs too. 🙂 If that don’t sound up your alley, stay away!


The Shifter Date books are the first Alma Black books I have read and I have loved every single one of them.  She just has a way with hot men and how they win their women’s hearts.

Rachel has been burned by men in the past so she has decided to just go after what she wants – fun in the bedroom, no strings attached.  Gareth is looking for his mate so that he can’t be challenged for Alpha of the pack.  Somehow they agree to hook up, even knowing what they wanted out of their relationship was so vastly different.  The chemistry between these two is intense from the first time they lay eyes on each other & it made me laugh a little how determined Rachel was to stick to her no strings rule, knowing that every time they were together their attraction just grew.

Alma Black can write some steamy romance, but it’s well rounded.  Her books make me laugh at the character’s antics, there is some mystery dealing with this PowerShift group (an anti human shifter group), there is sweetness and sadness; she keeps the reader interested and it’s not a one note book.  In this book she paired a bear shifter with a lioness shifter – not quite a combination you might think of – but they just fit perfectly together.  This is a fairly short book – most of the series is – but that makes it a quick read that you can get through in an afternoon and give you the chance to read it again and again!


Alma Black loves to write, and write and write. She is especially fond of sexy, paranormal stories where the hero has a penchant for growling and the sassy heroine doesn’t put up with any bark. These stories are fast reads and are funny, sexy, and very naughty.

Alma lives in Los Angeles, and wishes with all her heart that there was paranormal dating app that had eligible mates in Southern California. Until then she uses regular dating sites to bring you these stories, inspired by her actual dating life. Keep up with her at all the usual places…
