Despised by his tiger shifter pride as an abomination, Grey has ventured far from home, deep into the bowels of Hell in search of answers about the machinations of Archangel, the mortal hunter organisation who held his twin captive. With no knowledge of the realm, and little skill with the local languages, he quickly finds himself at a dead end—until he crosses paths with a beautiful hellcat female who rouses his darkest most dangerous instincts.
Lyra has been a fool, falling for the charms of a male whose only desire was to make a fast buck by selling her. Shackled and collared, her strength muted by magic, she awaits her time on the stage at a black-market auction, but before it can come, all hell breaks loose and she seizes a chance to escape—and runs straight into a majestic warrior who steals her breath away and tempts her like no other as he battles alone to free everyone.
When Lyra offers her services as a translator to repay Grey for saving her, will he be strong enough to resist the needs she awakens in him and spare himself the pain of her inevitable rejection when she discovers the truth about him? And when the powerful male in charge of the slave ring starts a bloody hunt for Lyra, can she escape another collar and find the courage to trust the tiger who is capturing her heart?

Whenever I am in the mood for a good paranormal romance, Felicity Heaton is one of my go to authors. She is skilled at keeping her readers engaged from the beginning of the story until the moment it ends. She creates dynamic, lovable and relatable character and transports you to a world that is not only unique, but also intriguing and intense. Her attention to detail gives her stories a realistic feel which makes you forget you are reading about a mythical world and characters. Treasured by a Tiger, book #14 in The Eternal Mates series was no different.
What the Story is About.
The story takes us back to Hell, where we meet Lyra, a hellcat. Lyra came to hell looking for other females of her species, but instead found herself in captivity and on the verge of being placed on the auction blocks. However, her fate would change when Grey, a Tiger Shifter came to her rescue.
Grey went to Hell searching for answers regarding Archangel, the organisation responsible for hunting and capturing paranormal beings for nefarious reasons. He never counted on encountering an ongoing slave auction and coming to the rescue of a feisty and fiery hellcat. Will he get the answers he went searching for or will his decision to stage a rescue take him on a different path?
What I Loved
Grey: As stated earlier, he is a tiger shifter. He is humble, loyal, protective, and hates injustice. These traits contributed to his journey to Hell. His mission was borne out of a desire to help his brother and fellow shifters. It is rare to come across a story where the male protagonist is a virgin, so I was pleasantly surprise when I discovered that Grey had no sexual experience. He struggles with issues of self-esteem, which was due to the treatment meted out to him by his pride because of the colour of his fur.
Lyra: Lyra proved to be strong, brave and determined. Her actions, during her time of captivity revealed her fighting spirit. She struggled with trust issues, especially where Grey was concerned. Even though he rescued her, she struggled with trusting him, which was understandable given what she had endured at the hand of slavers.
I enjoyed the development of Grey and Lyra’s romance. Although they recognised they were each other, fated mates it took some time for them to warm up to each other. Watching them move pass their issues and embracing their destiny was heart-warming and filled with sizzle and heat. The way Grey treated Lyra from the moment he rescued her melted my heart. I loved how they worked together to fight their common enemy.
Like the previous books in the series, Treasured by a Tiger is loaded with non-stop action, which will keep you on the edge of your seat. The fight scenes are intense and well executed. There was never a dull moment
The author did an impressive job with the world building, which came as no surprise. Her descriptive writing brought everything to life, which gave the story a realistic tone.
What I did not like
I was hoping that Grey’s trip to hell would have provided me answers to questions I had about Archangels modus operandi. Instead, what I got was a morsel of their operations, leaving me with more questions than I had before.
Treasured by a Tiger was fun, sexy and action packed. It is another great addition to the series. I look forward to diving in to the next book in the series.
