Billionaire bear shifter Hudson Royce has learned to keep women at arms-length. He’s been used before, and protecting his privacy is a top priority. Besides, he’s too busy running one of the most powerful corporations in Chicago to waste his time on real relationships. But when a chance encounter with a bold, curvaceous stranger has him believing in fated love, he’ll stop at nothing to make her his.
Ballsy businesswoman Kay Hennessy wasn’t sure she’d ever set foot back in Chicago after her ex cheated on her and broke her heart. When she finally revives her courage, she returns to the city only to be courted by the man who once devastated her. Chase wants her back, and she’s ready to consider his proposal until she meets a sexy billionaire who may have a few extra talents she didn’t even know were possible.
Little do either of them know that Hudson is really a shifter prince who can’t take the throne without a mate. And an opposing clan will do anything to keep him away … even if it means killing the person he loves most.


I found the Billionaires Unleashed anthology on Amazon and picked it up for free because I love billionaire romances and figured why not give shifter romances a shot! I’m going to be reviewing each short story in the anthology separately because that just seems fairer to me. The first book in the collection is Prince Hudson by Lily Cahill. I thought it was pretty good but definitely left me wanting more.

One of the things that I hate or that makes it super difficult when rating romances is story length. Prince Hudson is just under 150 pages long which makes it that much hard for Cahill to develop a true relationship between Hudson and Kay. I understand why Hudson was instantly in love with Kay – she’s his mate, it makes sense. But Kay is just a normal human. For Kay, who is getting over a bad relationship, to be so deeply in love with Hudson after only two weeks seems a bit ridiculous. As does the sudden revelation that comes out toward the end.

Still, the spice was decent and I think if we were given another hundred or two hundred pages, we’d really get to see Kay come into her own. For what we were given, she definitely seems to have a backbone and be super intelligent and shrewd. I would’ve loved to have seen more of Kay with her family, as well as Hudson with his family. Maybe in subsequent books in the series Cahill is able to further flesh things out at a more moderate pace.

At the time of writing this review, Prince Hudson by Lily Cahill is free on Amazon. At a cost of free, I definitely would recommend this to shifter romance readers.
