    Reviewed at Shifter HavenIn the lore for Rise of the Pride, shifters know and discover their mate by touch. One touch can give all the answers ever asked. When one person is human, it’s a bit different but the human usually feels a strong attraction to the shifter. Once that touch is made, any other male who touches the female will cause her unbearable pain that only their mate can ease.Winter was a made panther, not born. His panther knows instinctively that Nova is his mate. Yet he refuses to touch her to find out for certain. Yes, Nova is attracted to him, their bantering, arguing ritual is well formed now but still he holds back. The other member of his pride will tease and taunt him but he is determined to not touch her. Winter was once human and he refuses to allow “fate” to dictate who loves him back. Yes, he wants Nova, loves her on some levels but it’s not love if she does’t have the right to choose him back but be under some “fated influence” to be his. No, he’ll get her to love him, then he’ll touch her. And while that might make perfect sense to Winter – it will put Nova in grave danger from an enemy that is out to destroy everything they are.Winter is a fast paced, sexy, intriguing story. While it is a complete story of Winter and Nova, it also continues the threaded mystery and life with the pride that was started in Talon. The members of the pride that we’ve met before, and some new faces, continue their lives adding more information and the hints of stories yet to come. Winter gives us an intense romance, and also moves the stories of the other members of the pride along with developments that happen in this story.I’m enjoying this series very much. Not only for the really good story line and characters, but also for the thought provoking idea of the power of touch. While reading these stories I’ve tried to imagine a world where the most casual of touches would cause intense pain to a woman who has found her one love. It might at first glance sound romantic that only her man’s touch can be tolerated, yet it’s given me much to think about with this particular introduction of lore into the shifter world.I would recommend this story and series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader. You’ll find a provocative story, interesting characters, danger, sexy moments and a group of people that you’ll soon be quite comfortable with. I do have one strong thought – because of the woven threads in this series I do not believe it can be read out of order. Events flow from one story to the next and if you hop around you’ll miss some important aspects of the series. In my opinion.I own a copy of this story.

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I always read reviews before I move onto my next book and after reading Talon, I read the reviews for this book and one of the things I saw in multiple reviews was Nova's actions were childish. Well I disagree, I look into account her age (21), and I didn't think her actions were childish at all, not after reading the book. I kept waiting for this big stupid thing that she was going to do, and it never came, quite frankly, I believe that Liberty's actions in book 1 were more reckless and childish than Nova's.So obviously this book centers on Winter and Nova. I enjoyed the dynamics between them and watching Winter's internal struggle in regards to touching Nova and making her his mate, only to spare her from the pain of the change. This book is a cute light read for all the paranormal fans who would like to breeze through a good hearted story.

    I lost sleep over this one. I really liked the first book in this series, and the best part of starting a series that already has a few books published is that I can just keep reading. Granted I should have put it down last night and finish reading it today, but I just couldn't. Winter and Nova are a great couple, both a little hard headed and on edge, with the new dangers they are facing. The story was well woven and kept the suspense up until the end and left me wanting for more! I love the fact that even though the story centers around Winter and Nova, that the other members of the pride are given time in the story to develop a world that seems whole.

    Book 2 in rise of the pride.Was really looking forward to winter and nova's book after reading the second book and it didn't disappoint. Lots of action and really fast paced. Loved the build up between the charachters of winter and nova.

    Winter and NovaThe second book in Rise Of a the Pride series. This book is a standalone novel and can be read as such but a part of the series. The reader is introduced to characters from the first book and continues the theme of the books. The setting is great and the characters are well written and well developed. Winter and Nova do get their HEA but there are new developments and answers revealed. A great addition to the series.

    Loving This Series Of Books!!!I am loving this series. Winter and Nova's story was just as good as Talon and Liberty's story. I kept waiting for Winter to touch Nova. Can't wait to read the rest of the series sometime soon. Thank you for a terrific series of shifter stories.

    Awesome book!This is the second book in the Rise of the Pride series, and I enjoyed the story. Winter was being an protective jerk in the beginning but I understand why. Nova is awesome and more then a match for him. Can't wait to read more from this series.

    It was a enjoyable read, but Winter taking forever to touch Nova was longer then I liked, it just seemed a little drawn out and then out of nowhere he decided it was time to touch Nova and it did not feel it was even during a time it should of been done, but over all I still enjoyed the book

    I first met Winter in Talon and fell in love with his character instantly! Theresa Hissong didn't let me down either. Although there were time I wanted to smack him upside the head he is still my favorite leading man in Rise of the Pride.

    WinterWinter is one hardheaded panther shifter. Nova is a calm sweetie who thinks about everyone else first. Makes for an entertaining story of love discovered in the middle of a war they weren't aware they were in. One physical and one mental. The flow is just right for the tale. You get to know the newest characters while still being involved with the ones from the first book.

    Winter is here but you don’t have to worry about being cold because Winter Blue is one hot panther! Winter is a made panther and not a born panther. He wants to love his mate and not just have Fate tell him who his mate is. He gets around Fate by refusing to touch any woman. Nova Raines is very attracted to him and thinks she’s his mate but she doesn’t know how to break through to him since he refuses to touch her. There’s a lot of action in this book between the panthers and the wolves that have you sitting on the edge of your chair. This is book 2 in the Rise of the Pride series and while you don’t really need to read Talon, book 1, it will give you more details about what’s going on with the wolves. (Plus it’s really hot, too) This is a great book and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. IF you like Alpha panthers, hot sex and sweet love, you need to read this book and this series. You won’t regret it!

    Love, love, love!Ok, let me just start with this; shifters are HOT!! Ok that being said lets talk about Winter!! Omg, what a man!! So sexy and so concerned about Nova and doing right by her!! I think not being born a shifter gave him a little more insight, but as with all shifters once you know you know!!Nova is a little firecracker!! She isn't taking crap from anyone, but if she needs something, or some one, she's not afraid to go for it except Winter. There's total confusion there until they get on the same page and once they do, it's a beautiful thing.Loved the addition of the bear and I hope we see more from them.Malaki and Calla just pulled at my heart, I hope to see more of them in upcoming books too.So glad Savage is next, but I'm on pins and needles for Dane!!

    Winter and NovaI love this series, loved the first book of Talon and Liberty (Nova's big sister) which i came by it by accident. Loved Winter but Nova was seriously starting to get on my nerves, jumping into trouble without thinking for her safety and all Winter wanted to do was keep her safe but because of her stubborn streak she nearly dies! I can't wait for Savage and Mary's book though.

    I need a panther in my life!I can't say I love this series enough! It's so different from other paranormal romances that I have read. I loved that Winter want to fall in love with Nova without the mating pull being an influence. It was also heartwarming that Nova didn't want to force Winter into anything. The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting to know what was going to happen next. I'm super excited what will happen with the pride in the future!

    Speechless, just speechless. This book was WOW for me, it had my emotions all over the place. I cried, laugh, got mad, giggles. I had to many time walk away and take a break. It was breaking my heart. I loved Winter, he was so in love and not wanting to hurt the one he loved. AWWWW Reviewed by GypsyBelle* I own a personal copy of this books*

    GreatThis book was as good as the first if not better. Those sisters are something else and the stubborn panthers too. This h knows wat she wants, but instead of taking it she patiently (well somewhat patient) wait for the H to figure it out. These alphas aren't brain dead cavemen. No.. They love fiercely but love even more so.
