Mischief, Mongrels and Mayhem (ROAR #1) by Heather Long

She has a future to decide on.…

Mischief Jones—Missy to her friends—has never taken the easy route in life. She turned down a full ride to a four-year school to attend her local college because it kept her close to Nene, the woman who raised her. A fosterling, she knows better than to share her secrets, and she has choices to make for her uncertain future, but the TA in her history class challenges and fills her with wary interest every time they meet.…

Nature made him a leader.…

Cade Hayes has a mission, and the last thing he expected to find on the tiny college campus was a mongrel—shifters of dubious parentage and mixed blood. But the mountain lion can’t deny the provocative nature of her scent or the allure to stalk her and make her his. He should drive her away; her presence threatens his claim for territory and his pride needs land, but he rapidly discovers he hungers to take this mongrel for a mate.…

In a fight to survive…will a mountain lion tame a liger?

My review:
This is the first in a new series by Decadent Publishing.  Like its 1 Night Stand series it will be written by different authors and each will be stand alone with some common elements.  I was lucky enough to get an early copy of the first book Mischief, Mongrels and Mayhem (ROAR #1) by one of my favorite authors Heather Long. 
First off I have to say I loved the name of our heroine liger shifter Mischief Jones.  Missy is strong, smart and has earned the right to be comfortable in her own skin even if she is only 19.  She is attending college a place for learning and new experiences and boy howdy when the new TA in her history class shows up she is in for a whole new type of education.
I enjoyed this story a lot.  I think it probably suffered a little by size limitations imposed by the Decadent format a problem I had with the 1NS series as well.  But with my love of shifters and the quality of the authors participating in this series - Sorority Wolf by Rebecca Royce (ROAR #2), Phoenix Rising by Cara Carnes (ROAR #3), Imperfect Mate by Lia Davis (ROAR #4), Shifted Plans by Brandy Walker (ROAR #5), A Woman’s Roar by Virginia Cavanaugh (ROAR #6) I think I will be checking out these and future titles.
