What happens when fate intertwines shifters from land and sea?

Matteo Garras wants to be left alone. Most people take the hint. Apparently, Charlie Marsh isn’t most people. From the moment the alpha—who smells like sunshine—sits down next to Matteo at the local shifter bar, Matteo’s world tilts on its axis, making him want a future he didn’t think he could have, one he doesn’t think he deserves.

Charlie has always had a thing for grumpy cats, so his instant attraction to Matteo isn’t a surprise, but the intensity of his feelings and his possessive desire to protect the brooding omega are. The more Charlie gets to know Matteo, the more he realizes they have in common, including scars that are more than skin deep.

When pain from Matteo’s past tries to make him push Charlie away, fate pulls them back to each other, binding them together forever and giving Charlie the chance to show Matteo he deserves everything he’s ever dreamed of having.

Charlie and the Panther is the fourth and final book in the Land and Sea Shifter MPREG series featuring a grumpy panther with a sweet tooth, a sunshiny manatee with a heart of gold, and an accidental claiming.



Charlie is a manatee shifter with a boat tour business. One day while unwinding after work he decides its time to introduce himself to the grouchy looking loner at the end of the bar.

Matteo (the grouchy loaner) prefers to keep to himself. If you don’t let others in, they can’t hurt you. And he has been hurt enough in his lifetime to avoid anything that has the potential to cause him any further harm.

Charlie is relentless in his approach but when the Panther finally let’s him in, it’s short lived and leaves both men miserable as ever. Fast forward to after my anger and some of the tears subsided, what happens in the coming chapters made me love Charlie even more. He’s perfect in every way. Charlie and Matteos story was so fun. Mr Grumpy meets Mr Sunshine. These 2 could not have been more different. With that being said they balanced each other perfectly. It checked all the boxes to make it my first 5 star read of 2024!
I’m really going to miss all the characters I’ve met throughout this series. They have all been wonderful but there is no doubt Charlie and Matteo are my favorite.
