Independent, curvy, and beautiful Connie Glover doesn’t need a man in her life to make her happy. Or to save her. Or so she tells herself…
While out pursuing her passion for wildlife photography, she’s confronted by a hunter with his sights set on dominating her. Determined to teach the human a lesson, she’s a little annoyed when a sexy bear shifter shows up and chases the hunter away.
Anthony Black is the Marshal of Blackrock. His number one priority is protecting his den—and his mate. But keeping Connie safe is a challenge in itself. Not only is he unsure if she’ll accept him, but the stubborn and sexy witch loves her independence. Almost as much as she loves teasing him—something that makes him mad with desire.
With new threats to the Pack rearing their ugly head, Anthony must find a way to win her heart while convincing her they’re better together than apart. Because despite how hot her teasing makes him, securing her in his life and in his Pack is no laughing matter.
My 5* Review:
This is very short (50 pages) but packed novel with bear shifters, a witch and even another paranormal being (sorry, it would be a spoiler to say what!). There’s some strong characters, nasty encounters, shifter battles and even romance all crammed into the fast paced story. It is so short it was great to read it in a single sitting and I thoroughly enjoyed doing so. Although there are other books in the series, this can easily be read as a standalone. It is well written with a feisty female challenging the attitude of an opinionated alpha male shifter so don’t expect a peaceful journey to their HEA but do expect great attraction as mates recognise and acknowledge each other – eventually!
This is a magickal read that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who wants a quick action packed paranormal/shifter romance to read.
Thanks to the author and Barclay Publicity for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
