Marta returns to Savage Valley after the publisher of her book folds.  She meets Sam, Phil and Mel while there and wonders why she is attracted to all three brothers. 

Taste of Pride is the second book in The Pride of Savage Valley, Colorado series about the lion-shifters series.  The common theme of NormCorp trying to get a foothold in Savage Valley sees more businesses being approached to sell and family dynamics almost sees a family torn apart, as well as a community.  More about the shifter society and legend are revealed in this book, as well. 

The author did a good job showing how misunderstandings and jealousies within families can cause estrangements and how it can keep families apart.  I did like the way she showed how siblings can overcome feelings and seek to work together for the betterment of the family. 

Some of the secondary characters in this story are fun loving.  There are some very serious moments as well and the reader will enjoy some of the quirkiness of some of the personalities you meet.  I am looking forward to reading about the rest of the shifter families in future books.
