    Different Take on Shifter Series

    Roman's Gold is the first book in the Underground Heat series. I have read multiple books from the author and once again she has written a great book. I had a hard time putting the book down. This book can be read as a standalone, but is open ended for the next book in the series. There is violence and hot steamy sex. Definitely 18+. This is a shifter book set in the future. Shifters were once respected and part of society. Now they are on the run from those out to kill them. Kate Roman is a mountain lion shifter and becomes part of the shifter underground to help other shifters escape. Devon Heartshorn is a cop on an elite task force and is part shifter (but not enough to shift or be imprisoned). The police department, through a series of infusions, enhance the shifter attributes in him so he is better at tracking shifters to either imprison or kill. Devon's latest assignment is Kate. He finds her but is attracted to her and can't turn her in. Kate senses someone watching her and sees Devon and she is attracted to him too. He engineers a way to see her and they can't keep their hands, or other body parts, apart. Her cat realises that Devon is their mate. The infusions that Devon, and the rest of the task force, took did more than just enhance his senses. While having sex with Kate he ends up spontaneously shifting for the first time. Kate helps him learn how to shift back to human form. He learns that all is not as it seemed. What will he do now? What about the task force? I love this book and look forward to reading more of this series!

    Action-packed and sexy

    Roman's Gold is a futuristic paranormal novel set in a dystopian North America where shape shifters have been outlawed and are being hunted by the government. The story is the first in the Underground Heat series by Ann Gimpel. The author packs action and a whole lot of sizzling hot sex into this fantastic novella. Cat shifters in particular are a personal favorite of mine, and mountain lion Kate Roman has all the makings of a feisty leading lady. By day, she works as a sex surrogate. By night, she acts as an operator for the shifter underground, helping persecuted shape shifters of all types escape from government prison camps. Kate is smart, courageous and resourceful. Ann Gimpel puts a new spin on shifters: human and animal are "joined" but retain separate and distinct identities. Human and animal share a telepathic link. Kate and her cat engage in some hilarious exchanges that really brings an added layer of humor to the story. Devon Heartshorn is a cop who hunts shifters for the government. He is half-Native American, and his mother was fifty percent shifter. He has received blood infusions to make him a better bloodhound by enhancing his natural senses. However, the injections happen to have additional side effects that soon turn Devon from the hunter to the hunted. Initially, Devon is something of a gray hero, because he has actively participated in helping the government round up shifters. However, he changes thanks to his attraction to Kate and tries to protect her prior to discovering the effect the injections are having on him. Kate and Devon share great chemistry. Their emotional bond is tender and compelling, and the sex scenes are highly erotic. One scene in particular, when the shifted cats continue to have sex, left me blinking in surprise, but mostly because it's not something I've encountered before even in paranormal erotica. (More, I believe, due to reticent publishers, than authors). The love scenes are detailed and tasteful. There are sex scenes involving the hero/heroine and others. Overall, the story doesn't delve too deeply into its futuristic setting, although, a couple things did throw me for the loop-d-loop. References to hover vehicles that seem to zoom through the sky like aircraft furrowed my brow. Likewise with the description of a concrete wall around Berkeley. (I'm a resident of the SF east bay so I'm intimately familiar with the urban sprawl that is the Oakland-Berkeley area and I have trouble envisioning a wall containing the city.) Aside from a couple little nit-picky things, I had no trouble becoming completely engrossed in the story and following it through to the exciting ending. Ann Gimpel has a smooth, strong writing style. Each of her characters possesses a distinct voice and she employs good pacing, mixing actions sequences with sex in a manner designed to keep things flowing. It seems like the government of Ann's world must have created a real problem for itself by injecting so many highly trained cops with shifter blood, so I'm looking forward to finding out what the future of the Underground Heat series holds! So if you're looking for a red hot paranormal erotica novel, look no further. Just make sure you've got a willing partner on standby... Or a really cold shower! I purchased my copy of Roman's Gold. The author did not request a review.

    This book is great!

    Received this book free for an honest review. This book is great! It has all the action, intrigue and romance that I like. There's nothing like standing up for equality, even for shifters. Can't we all just get along?!

    Sex Surragote & Policeman can they save sifters?

    The author has really given us a new twist on paranormal shifters in this story. I thought it was extremely well thought out and written. We have Kate who is not only a shifter, but a sex surrogate as well, yep that's what I said. We have Devon who is working undercover to trap Kate, as now all shifters are dealt with harshly, like in death harshly. Due to medical procedures done to certain members of the police force, Devon and many of his co-workers are now in danger as well. Both must now deal with these consequences and must now run for their lives. Kate works for the underground shifter organization trying to save as many shifters as possible and now that Devon is on the run joins them as well. That's it, I've already said too much. To find out the who, what and why you must pick up this terrific story and learn of a very different twist of the shifter world.
