Review: Beautiful Mistake is the second book in the Royal Pride series by Nancy Corrigan. While this book can be read as part of the series, it may also be read as a standalone novel with ease. I chose this book because I enjoy reading shifter novels and I have not read this author before.
Lena has one goal and its to protect a shifter child her family takes in. Lena’s biggest problem is she does not know much about the shifter world other than what she does not like. Lena has had her heart broken several times and seems bitter about it. Its also apparent that she has trust issues. Lena is a stubborn woman because if she was honest with Devin sooner the situation would have not spiraled out of control like it did.
Devin is a royal shifter. He can shift into three different cats but he is not an alpha of a pack because of blackouts he has. Devin while did not believe he would ever find his mate still kept an open possibility in the back of his head. When he does find her, he will protect and win her over at all costs. Devin comes across as easy to like.
The chemistry between Devin and Lena is blistering. They make a great match even when they are arguing with each other. I only wish they did not spend so much time arguing with each other and Lena gave Devin a chance sooner. The sex scenes were sizzling.
I found this book is very well written with a very distinctive plot. The main and secondary characters were mesmerizing and enchanting. The ending of the story was a bit predictable but it was more the ride to the end that was more important. Overall, this was a great book.
