A BIG Bear Romance.

He might growl, but she's not afraid to bite.

Hands full taking care of his clan, the last thing this Kodiak bear needs is a woman poking her cute little nose into his affairs. But when she refuses to back down--and shows the courage to stand up to him--he can't resist the allure of a curvy city girl.

She's mine. All mine.

And when a rival clan thinks to use her to force his paw, he'll show them why you never piss off a Kodiak, or threaten what's his.

Tammy is convinced all men are scum, even gorgeous ones like Reid Carver. She knows he's hiding something. Something big. She just never expected a real freaking bear hid underneath all those yummy muscles. But when the truth comes out and he tries to scare her off with a roar, she shows him not just bears have bite.

A sassy, curvy human woman and a huge, grumpy, alpha Kodiak shifter argue, bite, shoot, boss, and battle their way as an unknown and dangerous enemy plots nearby.

Each time I pick up a book by this author, it is ‘guarantee- take it to the bank’ fun and excitement and I think this was my favorite of her stories that I’ve read so far.  There was the usual sassy wit, steamy attraction, and adorable characters with their human-like flaws along with a villain that was twitching just out of sight, but kept things tense.

I laughed many times as the two main characters developed a relationship that took both of them by surprise.

“What are you doing?” she asked.

I don’t know. Instinct not logic currently dictated his actions. But he didn’t admit this aloud.

“Do you always ask so many questions?”

“Only when I’m trying to understand what’s going on.”

“Isn’t it obvious?”

Confusion clouded her gaze. “No.”

Did she not sense the attraction between them? Of course she didn’t. She was a simple human. She couldn’t know how his bear chuffed at her nearness. How the scent of her aroused him. How he wanted to lay claim to her body. What the (deuce) is wrong with me?

Apparently, his grandmother wondered the same thing. “Reid Alexander Carver, what are you doing manhandling our guest?”

Oops, caught harboring naughty thoughts and jolted back to sanity. What am I doing?

This is the first of a new shifter series that gets to things quickly explaining a bit of the background as it goes with a deftness that gives just enough to keep the reader on par with more concentration given to the plot, characters and romance development.  Aside from the main characters, several other interesting personalities were introduced in this story setting up for more people to get their stories in this series.  The conflict rises to an exciting climax, but still is left open enough to continue through the series.  I am looking forward to what comes next.

So, if you are interested in scorching yet light paranormal romance, I would recommend this series.

My thanks to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
