He was fated for another,
but created to love her …
Decreed by Elders, alpha Jaguar Shifters Lyon Savage and his brother must decide Pride rule in a way not seen for centuries. Under a Shifter’s Moon, a mating can take place with a chosen human to produce a child, and the father of that child will become the one Alpha. Now Lyon must choose the love of his Truemate—or accept the decree to save his Pride and secure his future.
Strong and selfless, Kitlene is a rare woman whose blood, like her niece’s, carries something of the Shifter within its DNA. Willing to sacrifice herself for the sake of family, she offers herself to the Alpha Cat whose very presence pulls at her soul—and whose love brings with it a deadly complication.

Paranormal Romance Reviews
"Under a Shifter's Moon by Kari Thomas was a captivating read. Ms. Thomas has a fantastic writing style that maintains her readers' interest throughout the book. She provides strong, realistic characters and vivid descriptions of their world, which brought her book to life in my head. I loved the world that Ms. Thomas has created in Under a Shifter's Moon . The shape shifter community is divided, and so are Lyon and his twin brother. The animosity between the two brothers was obvious and well-written. I fell in love with Lyon. He is a strong alpha male Jaguar shape shifter, but he has a soft and sensitive side. His overwhelming attraction and growing love for Kitlene was an emotional journey that left me breathless. Kitlene was, in some ways, a fragile woman. However, that did not stop her from being strong, brave, and very feisty. She was a perfect match for Lyon, and I cheered them on to their HEA. Kari Thomas introduced a few secondary characters that made Under a Shifter's Moon even more enjoyable. They were just enough to enhance the story without taking over. I would have loved to see them each get their own book, so I could get to know them better. This is the second book that I have read by Kari Thomas. She is certainly an author to watch, and I have found her name leaping up my list of favorite authors. I look forward to reading more from the talented Kari Thomas."

"UNDER A SHIFTERS MOON introduces you to the Jaguar shifters pride and there are some issues that need attending. Here Lyon and his brother are fighting over becoming the one alpha and the reader is drawn into their animosity from the beginning. Lyon is a strong character that kept me intrigued especially as he tries to not fall for Kitlene, a woman who draws him like no other ever has. A strong, feisty woman who is more than a match for this strong alpha male; Kitlene was a heroine I could relate to and her scenes with Lyon made me melt, especially as he became soft and tender with the one woman who holds his heart. With some wonderful secondary characters that kept the story flowing nicely, Ms. Thomas delivers a sensual and emotional romance that will leave you gasping. UNDER A SHIFTERS MOON is a great story that will leave you longing for more. Ms. Thomas is a masterful storyteller who delights in creating complex characters and enthralling storylines that keep the reader entertained. If you enjoy a unique shifter story then grab UNDER A SHIFTERS MOON. It is truly one of those gems that will be read over again."

"Emotional from start to finish. A tough heroine. And alpha male to die for; one who cherished his woman without cruelty. This fast paced, exciting story will keep you turning page after page. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. (Ms. Thomas owes me night of sleep.) Danger lurks around every corner and Lyon is in for the fight of his life. The only way I could have been happier with the ending was to have a sequel with some of the secondary characters."
