Ellie West has always known there was more to her story than being abandoned at birth. A child of the foster-care system, she didn’t get many breaks, but the one thing she can do is sing. It’s her only ticket out of poverty and obscurity. Nothing else matters, not even the nagging sense that she’s different. She's headed for great things. She only needs a chance.
Jack Ferris couldn’t agree more. His firm, the elite paranormal agency Redclaw Security, has been hired to find a missing princess and return her to her family. Discovering that Ellie, a waitress in a hole-in-the-wall diner, is both the princess and his fated mate is like being hit with a sledgehammer. Ellie West can't be his mate. She's the mission.
The sooner Jack completes this job, the better, only Ellie has no intention of throwing her dreams away for a kingdom she's never known. With hired assassins on their trail, Ellie might not have a choice. They must do whatever it takes to stay alive.
The Panther’s Lost Princess is a heartwarming, thoughtful but beautiful written book that turned out to be a truly delightful read.

Jack is a Were-panther who works for Redclaw Security, an elite paranormal agency where he is one of the best. When his firm is hired to find a missing princess and return her to her family, Jack is given the assignment . He discovers that the waitress' name is Ellie West and she just happens to be the lost princess.
The characters are heroic, honorable, protective and charming. You will enjoy the strength of the heroine and the support that the hero gives her to help develop her strength. The book is full of emotion with some humor and a surprise that you will definitely enjoy and not see coming. It's an eye-opener for readers only because this is not the norm for Shifters.
There is only one complaint which is at the very end of the story. The pacing is just right until you get almost to the end then the story feels rushed because the author changes from first person to second person. Normally, this isn't a problem. But the reason I have a problem with this is it seems to be made only to increase the number of words in the book. This is done by having the second person words repeated based on the words that were initially written for the first person. For myself, I wish that if an author is going to change from first person to the second person after having used it for 60 percent of book - they should use a new scene and not repeat what's already been written for the first person.
Despite this, you won't be disappointed reading this book. You will enjoy it because it's a fabulous book. It will leave a smile on your face and a joyful feeling in your heart. This book is so captivating and most entertaining. I absolutely enjoyed Ellie and Jack relationship. It's scorching hot with the right amount of sensual scenes.
All-in-all, this is a phenomenal read and McKenna Dean- you have a winner and a new fan. I am a book stalker of yours from now on!
