Law of the Jungle – Sean Michael – 5 Nymphs
Captain Marco has one true passion, sinking His Majesty’s naval ships. The pleasure from revenge pales in comparison to the gift his crew presents. It is more beautiful and deadly than he could have ever dreamed of encountering. Marco’s new emerald-eyed cat has enthralled him and stolen his heart. When Abrigo shows Marco his human form, the Captain knows there is nothing he wouldn’t do for to protect his mate.

Snake Oil – BA Tortuga – 5 Nymphs
The loss of Haskell’s mate, Truett, has left the drifter lonely. When Haskell encounters a traveling show, he doesn’t know what to make of the owner’s claims. Haskell soon discovers that his mate is alive. Truett has dreamed of his lover and has had little desire to be human again. Haskell will prove the true power of love, as he fights to help Truett regain his freedom.

The Lost Tiger – Sean Michael – 5 Nymphs
Greyson believes in helping strays. His kind heart may not be to the liking of the man he’s dating but to Torao, it’s equivalent to the rising sun after a hard rain. Tired and hungry, Torao has escaped his Keeper and left the only life he knows, but life in a cage is not an option. Can Greyson protect the beautiful were-tiger he now knows is his mate?

Alpha – BA Tortuga – 5 Nymphs
Cage is a lone wolf who has fought for the right of his new den. When he encounters Roman, a wolf claiming the rights to the cabin, Cage is unsure of what to do but he won’t give up without a fight. Roman’s absence was longer than he anticipated, but he’s willing to share the cabin as long as Cage understands whose alpha in their small pack. A misunderstanding could tear apart their pack, and danger is waiting for a silent attack. Will Roman figure it out before it’s too late? Will Cage ever truly trust the alpha?

Fur and Fang is an anthology you won’t want to miss. Each story contains suspense, danger, erotic encounters hot enough to steam the windows. The characters, plots and settings engulf your senses and take you over from the first line. I truly couldn’t pick a favorite among these stories, and both authors are on my must-read list. If I had to pick a favorite character, I would say Greyson because of his selflessness. I have a love of shifters and I was in overload by the time I finished reading Alpha. I’m hoping BA Tortuga and Sean Michael team up again and bring us more Fur and Fang anthologies in the near future.
