"A Tiger’s Luck by Maia Dylan 4.5*. This was my favorite story in the set and was a great way to start off the book. I really liked the set up and thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between the two main characters."
"Over all most of the stories in Owned by the Alpha anthology are great starts to what could be longer stories. I loved them and really had fun reading this anthology. I would definitely be looking for more from these authors in the future they are all brilliant story tellers and I want to read more from them all.."
Yuri Amur is the Alpha of the last ambush of Amur Tigers, and head of the shifter congress. He has always believed his mate was out there, but he never imagined he’d find him in the middle of a bank robbery!
Xander McInnes is a police officer with the worst damn luck in the world. He wasn’t surprised when a quick trip to the bank turned into a life and death situation. His day took a turn for the strange when a tall, dark and blue eyed stranger had his body humming, and his imagination running wild.
Yuri and Xander are destined to be mates, it was just unlucky that Xander was human and knew nothing of the shifter world. When you add in a pissed of lion with delusions of grandeur, the situation turns deadly.
Can a tiger’s luck see them overcome the challenges they face and win the future they long for, or will the odds be against them?

Yuri looked up, his gaze locking with his, and Xander felt the connection rock right through him. What the hell was it about that man that had him reacting so viscerally? Xander watched as the men strode through the station, heading for the bank of elevators at the end of the hall. Xander had no idea he was even planning to move until he’d left the room and moved to intercept the group as they approached the lift.
The man with the expensive suit stepped forward and slightly in front of Yuri. “Can I help you at all, Officer McInnes?”
Xander crossed his arms over his chest. “I’m sure there are many in this world who would say I need a lot of help, but I can assure you if I do? It sure as shit won’t be something you can help me with.”
Yuri stepped around the man. Xander wasn't sure if it was imagination or reality, but a shiver of heat flashed between the two of them. “Forgive Harris’s over protective nature, Officer McInnes. He tends to get excited when he gets a call asking him to come to the police station and assist me with an issue.”
“I wanted to thank you before you left,” Xander said in a rush. “Your actions saved my life.”
Yuri nodded. “You’re welcome.”
Xander saw something move within the man’s blue eyes and it had his blood thickening. When they had been in the bank, Xander could have sworn Yuri’s eyes had glowed.
Now there was something lurking within their depths. Once again, he was struck with the thought that the man who stood before him was a predator. He saw things others missed. He—
“Was there anything else?”
Xander blinked at the question and came out of his inner monologue to see Yuri, his eyes now glittering with amusement. Xander realized he was blocking their access to the elevator panel behind him.
With a soft curse, he stepped out of the way. “No, nothing. Just the thank you.”
Yuri inclined his head and stepped to the panel, pressing the down button. The elevator was already on their floor and the doors opened with a whoosh. Yuri stepped back and allowed his associates to enter the lift before him and then moved to step into the lift. Once he was in, he turned to look back at Xander.
“Then I’ll say goodbye for now, Xander McInnes.” Yuri’s eyes did that strange glowing thing as the doors began to shut. “But I will be seeing you very soon.” The door closed, leaving Xander frowning at his own image reflecting on the stainless steel doors.
That sounded suspiciously like a promise and Xander found himself thrilled by the prospect.
