Shifter's Claim by A.C. Arthur

Half man, half animal, a Shadow Shifter is sworn to protect females—human or otherwise—from the savage fury of his own nature…

Rich, handsome, and successful—hotel magnate Sebastian “Bas” Perry could have any woman he desires. But despite his animal attraction to women, he avoids relationships at all costs. As a Shadow Shifter, he must defend innocent humans from the deadliest of his kind. And the most dangerous game of all is falling in love…

It takes a special kind of woman to hunt a predator, to tame the beast—and to capture a man’s heart…

Priya Drake is an ambitious reporter hungry for a story. At a presidential fundraiser, she sets her sights on the mysterious and magnetic Bas Perry, a man with a secret she’s determined to uncover. Stalking her prey back to his hotel, the hunter soon becomes the hunted—when Bas takes her in his arms and unleashes the animal within. For Priya, it is more than a night of wild, reckless passion. It’s the story of a lifetime. But can she betray the man she loves in Shifter’s Claim by A.C. Arthur.

He’d seen her about two minutes after she’d taken her seat at the table just ten feet away from his. She’d smiled and conversed with the others around her, all the while casing the room for something, until landing on him. Females did not normally affect him this way, they didn’t look at him and cause all the blood in his body to run hotter and faster throughout his veins. They didn’t call to him throughout the night in a room full of about six hundred people and they definitely did not wander around hotel hallways attempting to break into private suites—the private suites of Roman Reynolds, Leader of the Stateside Assembly.
