Checkmate - Annmarie McKenna I was looking for a good shifter's book for a while now, and although this one was more romantic suspense than paranormal I still liked it. There was very little about the shape-shifters - Eli turned into a wolf once, he roared a bit and the bite connecting him with his mate forever and a sentence or two about how the pack works and that was all. The other part was about how Nikki "saw" the murderer and he targeted her and etc. But still a pretty good read.
