Milla’s week was bad, a lot harder than usual for an import/export expert. Alex couldn’t believe he’d found his mate. Too bad she’s a smuggler.

Milla didn’t know who or what she pissed off, but she was having the worst week of her life. Her ship had sunk during a freak storm. Luckily, she’d gotten her crew and most of her cargo off. But somehow she ended up on an island with a neurotic cat, a black panther to be more specific. Her week from hell culminates when they land on an island owned by an ex-drug lord with security issues. Then there was one little issue she didn’t see coming. Ole pussycat wasn’t a panther at all.

Alex had no clue why he didn’t want to leave the infuriating woman. At least he didn’t until he got a good whiff of her. Now all he could think about was mating her. That alone was ridiculous, she was human. What made it worse was her penchant for illegal activities. As an ATF officer he was geared and ready to take her down for smuggling. Now he found himself doing anything to protect her. And she thought her day was bad.

Camilla ‘Milla’ Masters is a pirate who transports cargo that is not quite legal; on this particular jaunt she is transporting exotic animals, one of which is a black panther with arresting green eyes. Her ship is caught in a storm and she desperately tries to free the panther from the confines of his cage. He is finally free but she and the big cat are swept overboard into the churning sea.

Alejandro Cavalcanti is undercover investigating the poaching of exotic animals, being a shifter he allows himself to be captured hoping that he can shift back into human form and find the people responsible. What he didn’t expect was to be shipwrecked on an island and finding his mate.

First of all, I have to say that I absolutely love the cover of this book, it grabbed my attention from the start, and then when I read the synopsis of the story I couldn’t wait to delve into this book. A Pussy, A Pirate and Poachers was such an enjoyable read. The characters of Milla and Alex melded so well together even though Alex was in panther form for the first part of the book, the author made sure that the reader could still see the interaction between him and Milla. This helped the reader see the growing connection between the two characters and added another layer to their budding relationship. That’s why it was so amusing when Milla decided to name him BOB instead of calling him kitty all the time, the reader knew what his reaction would be. I also enjoyed Milla’s response when she realized that BOB and Alex were one and the same after thinking Alex was a figment of her imagination, a dream lover.

I have read a few books by the author Kassanna and I like how she makes her characters so realistic and down to earth. She allows you as the reader to settle into the characters and get the full enjoyment of who and what they are. She allows you to see the characters not just as characters in a book but as someone you can relate to, which makes for a great reading experience. Also, she always makes sure that the sex between the characters is spicy, which helps to cement the connection between the main characters.

A Pussy, A Pirate and Poachers is a book I would recommend as a quick read on a lazy afternoon, hopefully you’ll pick up a copy and enjoy it as well.
