      ***copy provided by publisher through NetGalley (in Bad Boys After Dark set)***This one started off rather well, compared to the other stories in the Bad Boys After Dark set, but it quickly went downhill. Stories usually do, when it becomes apparent, there's not much plot involved. And the pacing is way off. And the characters aren't interesting at all.This was one sex scene after the other and in the end I was supposed to believe the hero and heroine had fallen in love with each other. How? Whe [...]

      My review.I enjoyed the story. The storyline was interesting and evenly paced. The characters were dynamic. The storyline was a bit different (in a good way) from other shifter stories. It was an interesting twist on things.

      After emerging from her chrysalis of painful memories, Emily Scarlet sets out to prove she has what it takes to attract a man and experience one perfect night of passion in this captivating paranormal romance.Saber Mitchell’s brothers are out of control, so he hopes to get them mated and settled and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as Saber’s plan goes a little off course when he spots Emily. The chemistry is a hot bed of intoxicating passion and the sex scenes are scor [...]

      I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Copy of this book. This is the first book I have had the chance to enjoy by Shelley. This was also the first type of book that I have read and enjoyed when it comes to the subject of Shapeshifters. Emily is on the verge of changing her life after 6 months of dealing with something horrible and life changing. She is a strong independent woman who is just trying to get her life and her own self peace back. Then enters her life the amazing shapeshifter Saber who w [...]

      3.5 stars. Good but could have been better.A good introduction to a series but I just found there was way too much sex and not enough story, weird I know. I really felt that I hardly knew these two main characters apart from some minor background stuff.Whilst I understand Emily’s thinking I couldn’t sympathise with her when she decided to basically live with Saber but then wanted her independence.Will be interested in reading the other brothers books and see if they mature at all.Only after [...]

      Close to homeThis story hit really close to home for me - my ex husband was very much like Michael and it took a very long time to build back a semblance to self-worth. The story was fairly well written and interesting even if it did focus a little too narrowly on the priority characters. The drama waiting for an explosive encounter with her exes family never happened which leaves the ending feeling abrupt and a little flat but otherwise, it's not bad.

      Steamy ReadEmily is planning some fun after a huge disappointment: her marriage. And the perfect man she found for that is Saber, a feline shifter. But she is unaware of that. After transforming herself into an attractive sexy woman, she meets him at a dance. And his council set that up in order to find mates for the younger shifters.The book is a short steamy straight forward read.

      Um. nope. Just no. Trite, shallow, boring.

    • Jody says:

      Shelly Munro is very adept at writing steamy sexual encounters and shows her talent repeatedly in Scarlet Woman with numerous encounters between the sexy panther shifter Saber and the emotionally damaged Emily. From the moment they meet the sparks fly and the sexual tension palpable as each fights to keep themselves under control so their hearts don't get hurt.Saber is the oldest in a family of five brothers and always prided himself on his self control, but whenever he's around Emily his heart [...]

      I received this book as a review copy from the author and found the name intriguing from the start.I read the blurb an the first thought was: That's some serious emotional baggage they have to fight in this book. And I have to say that I was rather disappointed in the way it was handled. Emily meets Saber on the Middlemarch ball and like a few pages later she lives with him. That was way too fast for me, especially remembering that she had a cheating asshole husband and serious commitment issues [...]

    • Kristine (A Cozy Booknook) says:

      I really enjoyed this book. It's set in the small town of Middlemarch where the men outnumber the women. The town council (made up of panther shifters) thought of having a "love train" bring women to their town and participate in a singles dance. The idea was that some of the young men would find a mate and settle down, thus not causing any more hijinks that would bring attention to them. Saber is the the older brother to his four siblings causing the trouble so at the dance he doesn't expect to [...]

      This was an enjoyable story. Saber is both sexy and sweet, and Emily is a strong person, but a struggling woman under the weight of the pain her husband caused in their life together before his death. You really get attached to the characters, and I LOVED how Saber called Emily “kitten”. It’s the simple things in life sometimes that are so appreciated. I also loved Saber’s shameless pesky brothers. They had me laughing on more than one occasion.That being said, there were a couple things [...]

      While I was offered an ARC of this book, it was already in my TBR pile! I am so glad I was pushed to read it. I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Emily (Joanna) has been hurt by her husband and is having a hard time getting over that hurt. She decided to attend the Middlemarch ball in an attempt to shed her grief and become a new woman. Little does she know that meeting feline shifter Saber Mitchell and his brothers would change her life. This was a fun story to read. Even though the story dealt wit [...]

    • Marjorie Mindel says:

      Shelley Munro's My Scarlet Woman is a great shifter romance. I read it in one go. If you like to see a woman get over a bad marriage and find true love and fulfillment of self, this is a must read. I love shifter romances, no matter what animal, the paradox of human/animal is always fascinating. Add to the mix that the story takes place in New Zealand, my best friend's homeland, and the interest is geared up another notch.This is a well-written book that takes the female protagonist from sad/ang [...]

    • Jessie says:

      "Scarlet Woman" was a good quick read. The story was well written and the sex was passionate. I was pulled in by the strength and vulnerability of Emily and the determination of Saber to reach through Emily's walls to get into her heart. The plot had the potential of being pulled out into a larger story, especially with the mentioning of the reporter, which seemed like it was just tossed in with such a small book. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice quick erotic read with [...]

    • Gerri says:

      A love story set in modern day New Zealand about betrayal and learning to trust again, as well as earning the trust of a beloved. Did I mention this is also a paranormal shifter tale? Very well done, and the first in a series about brothers, men who shift into panthers, and who need to find their life mate. The author makes us care about the H/H, and their words, reactions and emotions are real and well written. This is also an erotically told tale. I will definitely be reading the rest of the s [...]

      Sometimes a woman can have just too much pride. And Emily Scarlet has too much pride. I would never kick Saber out of my bed, much less move out. Saber is absolutely wonderful from the minute you meet him. The perfect big brother, alpha male, and lover. Emily is scarred by her past and working to make a life for herself. Throw in a few mischievous shape-shifting panthers and a nosy reporter, and Saber has his hands full. Get to know Saber, and his brothers, in this delightfully sexy new series.

      This excursion into Middlemarch was my debut with Shelley Munro. Not sure how this shifter series has gone overlooked by me for so long. However, now that I’ve made this discovery - I predict many return trips. The author did a remarkable job of creating an appealing group of characters. Both Emily and Saber have strong passionate personalities. Their story and romance built together plausibly – not rushed nor forced. Lucky for me there are already 11 more installments in this series waiting [...]

    • Angel Ludwig says:

      Fun, fast, and hotMunro writes some of the best romance/erotica I've read because she gets the people right--her characters react and act like people. And she does it with a sense of humor and fun to play hat is awesome. I just wish the rest of the series was available on Kindle--one of my greatest frustrations with is that they don't follow through with posting older series books. They just put them up erratically and hope someone will buy it

    • Leslie says:

      SensationalThis was an excellent story. It has all the elements I like in a story.ion, romance, drama, and humor. The characters were well written, the story flowed smoothly, and am attention was held from beginning to end. I liked how Emma wanted to revamp herself after the death of her cheating husband. I also liked how Saber had thought he had lost his chance at finding his fated mate. When the two meet sparks fly. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
