Trancing the Tiger by Rachel Slate

***WARNING: Contains Adult Content (explicit love scenes, profanity, and some violence)***

Delve into a world steeped in tradition and superstition…
After her parents become infected with the Red Death, Lucy Yeoh flees to Malaysia seeking answers. Everything in this closed-off section of the world is paradise—from the lush tropical climate to her sexy new neighbor, Sheng…who just might be delusional. He claims the Plague God unleashed the Red Death and only a circle of Chinese Zodiac spirit animals can cleanse the Earth. Even more, he insists she’s one of them: the Rabbit. Long furry ears and fluffy bunny tail included.

He’ll show her how to fight to save the world…
As the Chosen of the Tiger, the burden of restoring balance to the world has fallen onto Li Sheng’s shoulders. When he discovers that the ally he’s long awaited, the Dragon, is actually just the Rabbit, Sheng is quick to dismiss Lucy. If only she’d stay dismissed. Lucy’s Rabbit refuses to cooperate, undermining the authority of his Tiger at every turn…and seducing him to the limits of his darkest desires. He’s not supposed to want her. Not when he needs the spirit circle complete and she’s their weakest link.

She’ll show him a love worth fighting the world to save…
Sheng’s enemies draw closer, and not everyone wants Lucy alive. Together, they’ll have to navigate a treacherous world where a line between duty and their hearts has been drawn between them. They must either sacrifice one, or find a way to surrender to both.

Lori's 5 Star review 

When I first started it, I was having a tough time getting into it and focusing on what I was reading. I haven't read too many "shifter" books and though this book isn't purely a shifter book, some of the characters do posess animals of the Chinese Zodiac. But once I looked past that, and looked into the "love story" that was unraveling, I loved the story. Sheng and Lucy were destined to be together no matter what. I love Mei too and can't wait to find out what happens in the next book. This book does have a sort of cliffhanger, but nothing heart wrenching
