Shape-Shift Into Adventure!

Shapeshifters Kyrie and Tom try to live a normal life in a small Colorado town—normal, that is, considering one of them is secretly a panther and the other a dragon. But now a primeval Shifter feud grows infinitely more deadly, and Kyrie and Tom find themselves warriors in an ancient struggle for Shifter destiny itself!

Quick-witted fantasy doyenne Sarah Hoyt continues the brilliant contemporary fantasy "Shifter" saga begun in Draw One in the Dark.

Fun book. I'm very glad I waited to read it until I'd read Draw One in the Dark, though - I'd have been completely bewildered most of the time, I think. There's a lot of relationships established or thoroughly explained in Dark that shake out in some new directions in Gentleman. That said - the mystery here is pretty poor, both of them. The murder-by-shark is given away way too early, and then the characters plod along to finally reach some conclusion... Dante Dire is just weird. An ancient society of shifters, and the best enforcement of their laws they can come up with is a psychopathic killer and some random rules? Eww. And while the solution to him is slowly unfolded through multiple encounters, it seems to me that some of the key encounters are not shared - that is, one person discovers a way to deflect him and in the next encounter another person, who we are not shown being told or otherwise learning the new method, uses it. As a mystery, or a horror, it's average at best. As a relationship novel, where people learn more about themselves and each other and their world (including the aforementioned ancient society of shifters - or maybe that should be ancient societies), it's great. I enjoyed it a lot; unfortunately, as far as I can see, there isn't a sequel.

This book is a fun read. A sequel to "Draw One In the Dark," itself a very good story, "Gentleman Takes A Chance" picks up right where the original left off. Kyrie and Tom are now co-owners of The George Diner, and have to balance their working lives, their needs as shifters, and their need to protect themselves from ancient enemies. As well as ancient friends who are just as bad, if not worse, than the enemies. All of this while keeping the Diner going on three shifts and also solving a murder mystery. Add in an estranged father, a Lion shape-shifting police officer and a couple of other surprises, and it is amazing how many plot elements Sarah Hoyt can keep running throughout the story. Take a chance on "Gentleman Takes A Chance," you won't be sorry!
