ALICE: Raised to hate bear shifters, she’s got enough problems, what with her idiot brother and father giving her guff all the time about her weight and general uselessness. Now, on her very first “hunting” trip — hunting bear shifters, that is — she realizes something big. Shifters aren’t the demons her Pa and brother Bradley think they are. As soon as her Pa shoots one, wounding it, Alice leaps in to protect it from being killed. That’s when it Shifts, changing from a bear to a tall, naked and very sexy man, and she realizes she might be in over her head. Oh, and great! He’s got a bullet wound in the shoulder thanks to her Pa. Now she has to choose between her family and a man she’s never met.
TAGGART: He’s got BIG problems. Raised all his life in the deep woods by a radical bear shifter crew that hates the outside world, the Black Valley clan, he’s decided enough is enough. He wants something different for his life. But as soon as he breaks loose of the crew and sets out for the bright lights of Pine Ridge, a small mountain town, he gets shot. Darn the luck! And who’s the only one that sticks up for him but the curvy daughter of the sniper himself?
Now Alice and Taggart must go on the run not just from Pa and Bradley but from all the bear shifters of Black Valley, but how can they trust each other when each was raised to hate the other? Things get REALLY complicated when they realize that each has feelings for each other.
This is a standalone HEA bear shifter paranormal romance short novel of 30,000 words, first in the Pine Ridge Bear Shifter series.
WARNING: Contains swear words, a sassy BBW heroine and steamy bear shifter action.
In this book we cover bigotry. We meet a family who wants to kill shifters because they consider them demons. When the daughter tries to stop them all hell breaks lose. Will the shifter she saves ever trust her? Will he tell her his story? Will they find what they are looking for together? What will happen next? Can they grab what is right their if they open their eyes and hearts?
I received an ARC version of this book in exchange for an honest review.
